Necessary? No. Simply because I don't talk about being straight all the time. It's one thing to be proud and say it once, or be proud and show off your partner like a normal couple, but bringing it up over and over feels like you're trying to rope people out. Just because they're talking about an issue that is normally a private issue.
That's their sexual preference, and while I'm open about talking about sex, not everyone is, and I can see the discomfort on their face. And then People get offended because its taken as being intolerant of gays, when in fact, some people in general just don't like talking about sex itself.
2. I don't find it as a disorder. Mainly because there's nothing to treat it, theres nothing to cure it, and its embedded in the DNA of human behaviour. More like sexual instinct chip then disease or mental disorder in my view.
But instead of it being listed under disease/disorder/illness, I feel it should be listed under sexual behavior. Which can include sexual preference of any kind, fetishes, and simply everything that one finds sexual in their mind. Its not something you can change, in other words.
3. And while I don't like people to flaunt being gay at every possible moment, like lapis said, I can still see why they do that. But by doing that, they are separating themselves and wedging that barrier between them and people of other sexual preference. I think equal treatment is if we stay in the norm for people of all preference. For instance, showing off your partner, going out in public, etc. and others treating them like normal in return.
4. Dude, at least you didn't give out all my information.
Anyway, Tula, thanks for the compliment.
