there was no "other"

If there was an other, i would have picked that one. Instead, I said, no, I like being bi. But only because I am in love with an amazing woman. If I wasn't with her, i might say yes. But to be honest, I'm bi, so it wouldn't matter. I just want to be happy. And she makes me happy.

well, duh

i don't care what anyone else thinks, and i know this is kind of selfish, but i want to live in a 'Lesbian Only' community. i want to be near people who understand me. if i could, i would say "people should only be allowed to have heterosexual copulings when the human race needs to be repopulated." i mean, we wouldn't have as much overpopulation, right?

i have to completely agree. except for the only lesbian thing, anyone is isn't straight should be allowed to partake.

just a thought

It would be alot easier, and one wouldn't have to worry so much when in a "good ol' country" community.

absolutely not

No offense to lesbian users of this site, but the idea of being attracted to girls makes me a bit...uneasy. I'm a certified man addict, and I don't need no stinkin' Twelve-Step Program.

Thinking about it objectively

Thinking about it objectively, of course I'd choose to be straight. I can't imagine it being nice, but of course it couldn't be any worse.

Judging by the Sims....

Lol- I have two main neighbourhoods in the Sims 2. One is heterosexual, and one is homosexual/bisexual. Judging by those- it'd be a lot easier and more fun to live in an only homosexual world.

In answer to the question- possibly, as it would take away a lot of hassle with parents and so on, but I still think it would be impossible for me.

I lived my life in shadow- never the sun on my face
It didn't seem so sad though, I figured that was my place.

I’m sorry for the people that picked the first option and I don’t mean that in a derogatory way I just am.
I mean I think it’s a shame so many people are homophobic because there missing out on so much. I mean I’m happy to be bi because then I can see the beauty in both sexes, even if I like girls more overall. I mean I seriously do see so many different kinds of magnificence (god I’m so dramatic tonight) in males and females and having one taken away would be awful! I spend half my time staring at folk in class, just watching them because there’s something about them that fascinates me…wow now I sound like a stalker…I didn’t meant it like that ^_^
But I reckon we’re all lucky for being able to enjoy beauty that other peoplefolks in the world can’t/won’t. We shouldn't want to lose that.
Did that make any sense? ^.^ lol



tap on my window, knock on my door...i want to make you feel beautiful.

I'm questioning right now, and while it's hard not knowing one's sexual orientation, I can see the beauty and advantages of each orientation while I'm residing in this middle ground. So that's why I said I wasn't sure--I'm not sure about anything like that at the moment. Indecisive/in denial? No, not me... :)

I'm bi

It's easier for me to say that I'm happy as I am because I'm bi and I can play the straight role if I wanted to, but I don't want to stop liking guys anyway and I don't understand anyone who would want to be straight. Why would you want to be like everyone else? It may be easier, but what's the point of changing yourself just because it's easier? Why would you want to stop seperating yourself from everyone else and start "fitting in?" Sure life is harder being gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender/questioning/anything else I missed, but things aren't going to get any easier if all of them start acting straight or commiting suicide. That just proves the other side right. It may be hard, but I think we've come a long way and have made it much easier. For those who are still wanting to be straight, please explain to me your reasoning.

I know this feeling all too w

I know this feeling all too well. Being bi, I really have no trouble acceptong my sexuality. It's just....me. I also tend to lean more towards the girl side of things, so being straight isn't that hard for me to imagine, and it's just so....boring. I'm perfectly happy with who I am, and who I want to be with.

Being gay, I would rather be

Being gay, I would rather be straight or bi, because it shouldn't make a difference about who I spend the rest of my life with. If we were all straight, then there wouldn't be any question of who there's no point in asking on a date. Being gay for me is like a shoe size; it has nothing to with my personality or any part of me, it's just a detail. Having feet which make it hard to find shoes isn't cause to be depressed and commit suicide, and neither is being of a minority sexual orientation. But by this analogy, being bi is better than being straight, which I think is probably true. I'm not recommending everyone start acting straight, and this is not what the poll question is about.

I can imagine you might prefer to be gay because you like being the odd one out or feeling special or you like the fact that you aren't going to have any unplanned pregnancies. But being gay has nothing to do with the kind of person I am, and many people aren't going to see that.
