homosexuality

My grandma is an evil TERF

She is a lesbian, living with the same woman for almost 40 years. I asked her and her wife, simply : do you think a transwoman could be a lesbian, aka a female homosexual? She said no “for obvious reasons, you know what i mean, but its not possible”, her wife agreed. I just laughed ^^ if only they knew how fucked up tumblr discourse about lesbianism is…

"I can't agree with a homosexual lifestyle" ok Sharon, I can't agree with Christianity as a religion then.

Then don’t agree with it. I’m not trying to force you to believe anything you don’t want to. But it seems you’re trying to force me to believe something I don’t agree with.

i fucking hate the queer community. people are identifying as gay. without. being. gay. what the fuck. i fucking hate this

WE ARE NOT SOME COOL CLIQUE YOU CAN JUST JOIN. WE ARE NOT A FANBASE. WE ARE REAL PEOPLE WITH REAL PROBLEMS. OUR EXISTENCE COMES WITH MANY RISKS.

IF I’D COME OUT AS GAY, IT’S HIGHLY PROBABLE THAT I’LL BE HONOUR KILLED, OR BEATEN UP (my community is muslim). MAYBE EVEN CORRECTIVELY RAPED. WHY ARE YOU MAKING FUN OF THIS. WHY DO YOU THINK IT’S FUCKING FUNNY.

“GAY” IS NOT AN IDENTITY. “GAY” IS SOMETHING YOU JUST FUCKING ARE, YOU CAN’T IDENTIFY IN AND OUT OF IT. I CAN’T IDENTIFY OUT OF MY SKIN COLOUR, NOW CAN I?

I’M DONE WITH ALL THESE PRIVILEGED WESTERN PEOPLE USING WORDS THAT DO NOT DEFINE THEM YET GET PRAISED AND ACCEPTED BY THEIR WHOLE COMMUNITY.

Saying you struggle with pre marital sex isn't comparable. You're not expected to never have a relationship or stay celibate your entire life from your religion.

It is comparable because sin is sin. My struggle with heterosexual lust is no better or worse than homosexual lust. Both are considered sexual immorality and are equally as wrong in His eyes. And as a side note, I really don’t appreciate you downplaying my struggle with sin and implying that homosexual people have more of a struggle. You don’t know the dynamics of what I face with my own struggles, so it’s really not good to generalize like that.

And if I were never to get married, yes, I would be expected to remain celibate my entire life - no sexual intercourse outside of marriage, no masturbation, no sexual fantasizing. Marriage is not a given for everyone. Not every heterosexual person is meant to get married and for those who don’t ever end up finding a significant other, the loneliness and desire for a partner is just as painful for a heterosexual person as it is for a homosexual person. The desire for sexual intimacy is just as real for countless people in both scenarios. Yet in both scenarios, even though the desires of the flesh push a person to want to have sex outside of His intended design, celibacy is what He expects.

  • Disney: We can't have like... A canon gay main character. That would disrupt our viewer base too much!
  • Nickelodeon: Just... Sneak it in man, make it subtle. These kids are smart they'll figure it out. Release comics and stuff dude. Get on it.
  • Cartoon Network: JUST FUCKING GAY IT UP BRUH, MAKE EVERYTHING GAY! Steven Universe? GAY! Amazing World of Gumball? GAY! Adventure Time? HOLY FLAMING JESUS BALLS YOU BETTER BELIEVE THAT'S GAY! YOU GET A GAY, AND YOU GET A GAY. GAY ALL ROUND!

Ok guys, we need to talk about J.C.Leyedecker, and how its a fucking travesty that no one has made a film about him yet.

So Leyendecker was an illustrator during the 1910′s-1940′s. His work was absolutely gorgeous and highly ubiquitous at the time, and his llustrations for the Arrow shirt company created one of the most iconic images of male beauty of the early 20th century. But this icon came with a delicously romantic twist.

So this image of The Arrow Man was both incredibly macho and well built, but also ethereally pretty and dapper. But the model who the drawing was based on cropped up in A LOT of Leyendeckers work. In many he was engaged in casual social scenes with other men, in others he was shaving in the bathroom or getting dressed, broad shouldered, skin glistening, dark blond hair perfectly in place, jaw sharp as a fucking shovel, but with a slightly rounded chin. In one ad for war bonds he even appeared as the statue of liberty. This same man appeared in hundrereds of drawings, each with the same sharp care and attention to detail which makes looking at him almost feel voyeristic. 

So this mans image is EVERYWHERE during the early 20th century, and he is a fashion/lifestyle icon for men on par with the female gibson girl. He was the celebrated symbol of male strength, virility, and power. 

And man who modeled for Leyendecker’s iconic univerally adored macho man? That would be his lover, Charles Beach.  

so all this gorgeously homoerotic artwork defined the image of hyper macho masculinity during the interwar period. Leyendecker painted Beach onto the face of the world, that was his love letter. He basically immortalised the love of his life by making the whole world adore him as much as he did.

Leyendecker’s work would go on to influence the likes of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Norman Rockwell. After his death in 1951, when people figured out that the unmarried man he’d been drawing and living with for decades, right up until the time of his death, was actually his lover, Leyendecker’s name has sadly been pushed out of the history books in favour of more wholesome characters.

And that fucking sucks

I would like to request a full length movie, with all the jazz era glamour and steamy romance that this genius deserved. During a time when homosexual men where thought of as weak deviants, this man not only had the nerve to use his lover as the model for all his great works, but he made him into the STANDARD of what it was to be a man. 

J.C. Leyendecker and Charles Beach deserve your rememberance.

Gay people didn't choose to be gay and it's incredibly unfair to deny them a relationship. Something doesn't add up somewhere, with God calling it a sin.

The truth is that nobody chooses the sin(s) they are predisposed to - homosexuality isn’t an exception, and it seems you’re trying to single it out as one. What we do have a choice in is choosing to act on the particular sin(s) we are weak to.

People don’t actively choose to have a weakness with heterosexual sexual sin, adultery, stealing, etc. So should I say “I didn’t choose to want to have sex before marriage, so I’m just going to do that because it’s not fair to deny me of fulfilling my sexual urges”? No, I can’t say that because fulfilling my fleshly urges is a sin if it’s something He deemed a sin. It doesn’t become justified because the emotion/desire to fulfill them is strong. Or should someone who wants to steal say, “I didn’t choose to want to take what doesn’t belong to me, it’s just a natural urge I have so I’m going to keep stealing.” If you take any other sin and apply this mindset, it becomes clear that it doesn’t make sense. Nobody actively chooses to be weak to a particular sin, no matter what that sin is. They choose whether or not they are going to act on it and commit sin.

Like I said in my previous response, we don’t know why certain people have weaknesses to certain sins. His ways are higher and we will never understand fully how every single thing works. But what we most certainly can’t do is start defining what is and isn’t sin based on our own “definition” of sin.. and that’s essentially what you are doing here. When He created us, He created man and woman to fit together and be partners, reserving sexual intimacy for marriage. Homosexuality defies His design and will for sex/marriage, so He deemed it sinful. Even if that doesn’t make complete sense to you, it doesn’t make it less of a sin.

And I’m not denying anyone, if that’s what you’re implying. But if someone asks me what the truth is on this topic, I will speak honestly because I would be a liar if I didn’t. People have freewill and can make whichever choices they want in life. I have no influence on people’s decisions. I can’t control that and I wouldn’t want to try controlling someone’s freewill. If someone is going to choose not to act on homosexuality, it has to come naturally and from their own freewill. And that is very possible through the transforming ability Christ has on hearts.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to let me know.

Stealing and not having sex is a lot different than just wanting to spend your life with someone you love!

Sin is sin in His eyes. People often have a tendency to create “tiers” of sin, categorizing some sins as better or worse than others. I’ve been guilty of that myself, so I’m not claiming to be any better than the next person. It’s so tempting to say, as a completely unrelated example, condemn a murderer as worse/more sinful than someone who steals.

But in His eyes, sin is sin. A person guilty of stealing and a homosexual person acting on their desires are equally condemned if they keep sinning without repentance and do not seek to be made right through Christ. It may not always make complete sense to our limited human minds, but it’s how He sees it. We can even see this concept in His explanation regarding lustful thoughts. Some may be inclined to think that having lustful thoughts about someone who isn’t your spouse is less of a sin than physically having sexual intercourse with that person. But Jesus told us that lusting after someone is actually considered adultery, just as it would be if you were committing the physical act of intercourse.

Trying to categorize sins by “severity” is a very easy trap to fall into and one we should always avoid because it becomes a slippery slope of redefining sin according to our own standards instead of His. And in turn, it can lead to the dangerous mindset of not taking supposed “lesser” sins seriously and being more inclined to commit them yourself and/or not see it as serious when others get caught in them.

I made a rule for myself: I would not include anything that human beings had not already done in some other place or time, or for which the technology did not already exist. I did not wish to be accused of dark, twisted inventions, or of misrepresenting the human potential for deplorable behaviour. The group-activated hangings, the tearing apart of human beings, the clothing specific to castes and classes, the forced childbearing and the appropriation of the results, the children stolen by regimes and placed for upbringing with high-ranking officials, the forbidding of literacy, the denial of property rights: all had precedents, and many were to be found not in other cultures and religions, but within western society.
—  Margaret Atwood on The Handmaid’s Tale in a 2012 interview

I try really hard to understand opposing views to my own. I draw the limits at extremism and views that hurt innocent people.

If you think my simply believing that homosexuality is a sin and that I don’t agree with the lifestyle is “extremism”, then I don’t think you honestly know what extremism actually is. And I’m not saying that with any sarcasm, I’m just being very honest. Extremism with regards to homosexuality is hating people purely for being homosexual, wishing harm on homosexuals, and/or actually taking action to harm homosexuals. Which is what you see happening in the Middle Eastern countries under Islamic rule where it is legal to publicly mutilate, hang, and throw homosexuals off buildings. That is extremism. That involves the hurting and torment of innocent people.

It is not extremism to merely say you disagree with homosexuality - and mind you, that statement is being said purely out of care for others. And I am not trying to force anyone to do anything - the decision is ultimately up to the individual as to whether they decide to embrace sin or follow Christ. I can’t force someone to accept Christ, nor would I want to. That has to come naturally from their own heart.

This mentality that disagreement with homosexuality automatically equates to hatred is very frustrating. Yes, there are some people who disagree with homosexuality with hatred as their motivator. But if someone is truly a follower of Christ, I can assure you that a person stating that they don’t support homosexuality isn’t coming from a place of hatred and they’re not getting any personal satisfaction out of saying it.
