I have come to believe a number of things about homosexuality. They are part of my “alternative view”. I thought I would set these out at the start of this blog, just so you can have a good idea of where I am coming from. Over time I will explain why I believe what I do. I have, what I believe to be, considered, rational reasons.
I believe the following:
Due to the above, I believe that it is best for me to not pursue the homosexual desires that I have. Instead, I choose to invest in good friendships with other guys, and seek to resolve the factors in my own life that have contributed to my homosexual desires. I hope that one day I may meet a beautiful girl, fall in love, get married and have kids. But even if I don't, I know I will be more content without going after all that gay culture has to offer me.
- No one is born gay - in the sense that no matter what happens in their life they will be attracted to the same sex;
- Relatedly, there is no such thing as a gay gene – in terms of a gene that if someone has then they are definitely gay;
- Homosexuality primarily develops as someone grows up due mainly to relational, emotional factors;
- Genetic factors can have an impact, yet not a determining influence;
- Homosexuality isn’t a choice that someone makes one day, but this doesn’t mean that it must be intrinsic to the individual;
- Our society’s acceptance of homosexuality is superficial. Many betray their true opinion in how they joke about homosexual guys behind their backs;
- It is possible for someone to resolve the factors that influenced their homosexuality, and hence develop heterosexual desires and have their homosexual desires diminish - yet I admit that this is not easy, and it is unwise to search after at all costs;
- I am no worse than anyone else due to the fact that I have homosexual feelings;
- A guy is very unlikely to gain continued happiness and contentment in a relationship with another guy, yet I admit that some men may find this - please let me know if you have;
