My Two Dads Table of Contents Topic Rational pp. 2 Internet Resources pp. 4 Abstracts pp. Topic Rationale The reason I chose homosexuality as a topic is because it is queer to me. What I do not understand is what would drive people to this way of life.As far as I can tell, people had weird lives when they were younger. Maybe they were dropped on their heads as babies. Maybe they were abused as children, be it emotionally, sexually, mentally, verbally, physically, socially, politically, economically, chemically, and/or academically.
Maybe these people joined the other team later in life. They could have just come into it, perhaps simply putting a name to the idea.Its possible that they have had a peculiar attraction to the same sex, taken a step back and realizing what exactly is happening. Or they may have done so just to gay out of a rut or for a change. It may have been that they were rejected one too many times or that they saw one too many straight people who were jerks, and they said to themselves that they did not want to be one of them. There are many reasons, some petty or insignificant or ridiculous. Some reasons are extreme of obvious. What my long term goal, in a nut shell, is to understand them, their reasons, and I am guessing that this will make me a better person.
The preconceptions that I have are that they, the gays, are wrong, and I, (the straight one), am right. I think that I base this on the fact that the majority of the populous are straight. I mean, the entire American population cant be wrong, can they? Another preconception that could be is that I am comfortable, simply because I had never given it much thought before. I am not going to go around and beat them senseless to say that homosexuality is unacceptable. The truth is, to me, that it is acceptable.
This is where my motto come into play: If it feels good, do it (Within reason)!. If they know what they are doing, then go ahead and do it. It is their perogative and their lives and let them do as they please. I also feel that gay people are the most polite people in the world too; I also hope to understand this as I research more. I do not really have much of a previous experience with any aspect of this topic. This is one of the main reasons why I chose this topic, to learn more about this.My only experience with this is from TV. There is a gay host with his own homemaking show and a gay character in MTVs The Real World in San Francisco by the name of Pedro, a Cuban.
I am also familiar with Ellen DeGeneres, a lesbian comedian/actress and Melissa Etheridge, the singer. If they are comfortable with it, then we should be too. Buckel, David Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund for Immediate Release.
