I have the same mentality as Frizzurd, no one has ever hit on me and I have never had the gut to hit on anyone that i actually find attractive. I would defintely choose YES without any hesitation. I just want to be normal and to be accepted. The closet is a dark and a lonely place.

yea, like alot of u i want to be "normal and accepted". I want to be able to have a family, and walk down the street with my partner without snide remarks etcetc.

And considering how few people are gay, the choice in partners is alot smaller also; so more chance of having to "settle for this one" rather than find the one best for u.

hopefully teh fairy will turn up, or i'll do a 'reverse ben' and go from gay to straight all of a sudden.

I hate to be overly pragmatic here but, guys, there ain't no straight fairies. :lol: It's an absurd hypothetical to even consider becoming straight if you're gay.

maybe instead of a fairy(who is already gay him/herself), it should be somekind of neuromedical procedure. Now that sounds feasible.

Maybe there is no "fairy" but here's the secret: If you don't like being gay, you date a woman. If you like it, you continue to do it. If you don't like it, then you don't. There's no conversion therapy or religious indoctrination that can make you attracted to something you are not. The only way to see if the grass really is greener on the other side is to hop the fence and have a look.

But the point of this thread is not whether you actively want to be straight. The question is IF there was a straight fairy or some sort of pill you could take, would you do it? Keep in mind that many of the people who answered "yes" couldn't be straight if they wanted to.

With women you only need to show some lack of interest and they become over overoveroverinterested. It is TERRIBLE. It is TERRIFYING. It is ABSOLUTELY, ABSOLUTELY, ABSOLUTELY... If only one perfectly ugly guy could do that.

If the Straight Fairy showed up I would pull out my "magic wand" and sprinkle him and make him gay.

How can acting the way you've always acted be conforming? If i'd taken up waving rainbows, changing my lifestyle to fit a more gay ideal, etc. ... that would have been conforming.

I just dont understand the push to fit in, um hello we are gay, we are diffrent. But you want to cover that up becauseyourjustlikeeveryone else, and feel content with blending. Thats such a waste of personal expression. You keep mentioning rainbows, I hardly ever see any. The only people who really wave rainbows, wear the bracelets, keychains, happen to be lesbians.

So... "being yourself" means that one has to make a conscious efforts of being different?
That sound more to me like trying to be original, and that's not the same.

I think what GX is saying, is that it's all people are not the same.
We don't share the same thrills and dreams - and we certainly don't share the same ideals.

Taste the words.
"Being yourself", means to do what you feel is right for you, yes even if the result is blending in
and being what others may consider un-original.

Otherwise you are NOT being yourself - you conform into something somebody else thinks you should be.

Good points, Ben.

With regards to GX's post, though...

That post sort of contradicts itself... because if you TRULY don't give a sh*t, then the "fags" cannot cause you any unhappiness, because what they say and think would have no effect on you.

Is that too many, or not enough?

Personally, I would accept either answer, but, like an essay question on an exam, you'd need to cite evidence to support your answer. Especially if the answer is "no" because I wouldn't believe that being gay was never painful or at least inconvenient for you. Then, you should have some idea why a person would say "yes" even if that's the wrong answer. But if it's explained well enough, either answer could make sense to me.

I didn't vote, by the by. The middle answer caught my attention because at 18 I was more optimistic than I am now. I mean I knew how cruddy life could be for a minor, but the particular varieties of adult crud couldn't have been too real at 18.

Not a snowball's chance in hell I would. Sorry, but this is who I am and if other people don't like it, well, they can suck a fat one. That would be like asking a tiger if it would like to trade it's stripes in for spots. Why don't you just ask if the skin color fairy showed up, or the hair color fairy, or while we are at it, the eye color fairy.

And for those that have said yes...well, we won't go there...that would end up opening a whole different can of worms.
