It went all downhill when LGB added the T, which had nothing to do with their original message.
This discussion has brought an interesting thought into my mind. People are talking about weather you are born a certain way or not, but I ask myself how many people were born a certain way but never got to experience who they are because of social oppression. Homo- and bisexuality are probably way more common than people think. There are probably millions of people who don't even know they are because they never dared to explore themselves and their desires.
Which makes it so heartbreaking to see that the transgender community has completely taken over the conversation, hurting both homosexuals and heterosexuals with their stupid gender stereotypes while getting to pretend that they do the opposite.
Ah yes forgot about bisexuals. I know a girl who has explored but in her home country she would never have done it. I think she still fears what her family would think. TBH i don't know if she has landed on a position what she is because of it and you can't really talk about it with her because she finds it awkward and sometimes is in denial.
The next thing I will say will probably sound shallow, but I think it is a good way to put things into perspective for people that fear the unknown and ho might be reading. I don't know why to this day a straight person would care if someone from their same gender is gay. There is no logical reason for it. Let's be honest dating has a lot of luck element to it. Sure trying hard gets you more dates but to find a person you can click with is real hard and all about being at the right place at the right time, especially if you have to live with them for many year/life if you get married. If your competition narrows because people are born gay, how is that a bad thing? Better odds for you finding the right person for you. In cultures where you mentioned oppression happens, gay people marry the opposite sex are not happy and in turn the straight person struggles also to find anyone suitable. If those places allowed those people to explore their sexuality, than your mr/mrs right might not have been taken into an unexpected relationship that their partner is lying to them about what they really want and putting on a fake smile like the relationship is strong as ever. Now i won't pretend I haven't been upset to find out some women are gay. But not because i find it disgusting but because when I was single I was like damn would have been fun to get to know her at an intimate level.
