Ohmy gosh I forgot to add that I can't believe that "It's Complicated" got renewed for another season. Ugh Denise Richards. And I hate those Microsoft ads. They make no sense whatsoever.

Just apologizing because I cannot spell 'genitalia'.

First of all, sexuality (wherever it happens to lie within the wide spectrum) is not a disease, no matter what. That was formally established by the medical community back in the 60s. We love who we love. Even though genetics and such may contribute somewhat to our sexual orientation they do not command it. Some people love people for WHO they are, not what genatalia they own. I've always been attracted to men, but that's just because all the people I've had romantic chemistry with have been male. Who knows. There might be a lady out there who is my soul mate. Just because I currently identify as straight doesn't mean I judge romantic partners by their gender. See 'Chasing Amy'. At any rate, good on Brad. He seems to be a really good role model for how Hollywood should allocate some of their millions to charity. He walks the walk to. He doesn't just donate money, he donates TIME to the cause (like actually physically helping do carpentry and stuff in New Orleans after Katrina).

Good for Brad.

Good thing we have you, Ptip, to tell us who people should sleep with and love, and how serious marriage is. If I want to marry my same sex cousin for the weekend, that is my prerogative, and not yours to decide for me. And just so you know humans have been sword fighting, bumping bumpers and tossing salads for all of history, it ain't nothing new! What's new (400 years or so) is this puritan fear on sex, hot, sweaty sex. And a divorce to follow.

I'm voting NO on prop 8!! I believe in equal rights for all, regardless of what I personally believe (although I do take a very liberal, human sexuality is on a sliding scale, and labels like "gay" and "straight" are man-made boxes that we try to force ourselves into, and which do not reflect reality...) No one has the right to force their beliefs on anyone else. Gay people are not second class citizens! Everyone should have the right to marry the one they love. That's just MY opinion.

You're embarrassing yourself pitip. I don't think "theory" in a scientific context means what you think it means.

hey im getting married after being with my man 6 years soo im with you there. do it once and think about it first!!
pitip pitip 8 years
Yes you are right. The reason why I dont like the idea of gay-marriage is that not all people take it seriously (not even heterosexuals). Even now a days our laws are making it more difficult for people to get married by making them take mandatory classes/preparation to discourage impulsive decisions and which I think is great! Not all people like this but hey maybe the next time one decides to get married one will think it thru. :)

ptip one last thing. whatever the truth of the above. i would argue it is not something that can 'be cured'. i dont understand why people obscess so much in america about this topic. what does it matter who people choose to sleep with. we can all chose. ive studied biology and believe me we are just animals who go instinct

It's all good, pitip. We're all entitled to our opinions, and to speak them :)

There are many thoeries and none has been proven... a gene? a virus? mental? I am not a doctor nor can argue about it, but there is no evidence of what causes the imbalance.

peace ptip. thats nice to say that. but i hope you change your mind. why any of us fancy one person over the other you know. i like johnny depp, you may find him repulsive. some people are attracted to qualities they see in same sex partners. finally these arent marriages but legal unions. its right that people who devote their lives to each other have rights. im bored tonight and must goo nighty

it's nice to hear that brad is supporting something in our own country once again. he's always giving to different organizations and i think that it's a great thing that he's doing. you're 100% right in there - no one should have the power or right to say who you can or cannot marry i hope that hilary is doing ok. i read about this story a while ago and it's never a good thing to hear about people being hospitalized. i never understood the point of those microsoft commercials to be honest - i didn't even know that they were for the brand until a while of watching them since they weren't talking about any real product. that's nice of giselle - that she's going to donate proceeds from the sale of her stuff. it's not like she's hard up for any cash since she's one of the HIGHEST paid models out there. sadly enough, i watched denise's show and it was MUCH better than the lohan mess so i can understand why they are renewing it. i hope that it gets more exciting as for coleman - needs to get things in check - he's been on a decline lately and that's not a good thing.

to continue you can write a book backed up by dubious sources whose importance is overstated every day of the week. if you dont like gay marriage well thats your opinion. but being gay is not hormonal. trust me. biology is my thing

I did not mean to upset anybody , it is just my personal opinion and I dont have anything against anybody. I have relatives that are gay. Nobody knows (not even science) why people turn/or are born gay (that is still a BIG question). My apologies for the misunderstanding or if my point of vie upset anyone.

Please read "Born Gay: The Psychobiology of Sex Orientation" by British researchers Glenn Wilson and Qazi Rahman before talking.

JudeC dont let her get to you. whatever backwater minister is teaching her the facts of life obviously screwed up lol

So what you're saying, pitip, is that people are gay only because there is something medically "wrong" with them, or something wrong with their character. In other words, there must be something wrong with a person if they're gay. :ponder:
