Yeah, I find the many threads that tie this, that or the other to "gay" tiresome at times. It's sexuality people, part of who you are but not - IMO - the primary part of "personhood".

Who said it was the primary part of "personhood" in those threads? If anyone is over-obsessed with gayness on this forum, it is you, with your endless need to attract attention to yourself when a gay-related thread or response is posted. If it bothers you simply ignore those threads and post in other topics! The world wide web is a big place.

If it's "tiresome" you can simply ignore them instead of replying to them and creating other threads related to them. :scratch:

And I'm pretty sure none of these threads imply sexuality is the primary part of one's "personhood".

Bear in mind the OP is one who recently condoned domestic violence in another thread, so I wouldn't take him/her too seriously.

*death* @ the epic tragicness of this thread. :hysteric:

I have never seen a straight person quite as pressed as pov. How many years until we get the thread from him about being bicurious? How many more years before he starts spanking it on webcam with other Tennis Forum users? And how many before he comes out as a total bottom? :o

My guess is 3, 4, and 6 years.

For a lot of people it is a primary part of personhood. Not everyone (least of all people who actually are gay) feels the same way as you. :weirdo:

Are you aware that there are people here for whom tennisforum is the only safe space in their lives to talk about their sexuality? You're like a three-year-old whining in a day-care center because the kid across the room has a "gay stuff you did as a kid" thread and you don't.

The thread title was obviously worded so as to "challenge ppl". Not how I'd have written it (and I've never started such a thread anyway) but there are 2 serious points that follow from it. And BTW, the "orientation polls" here are generally about even, with a modest plurality of gays among the male members offset by a higher % edge for straights among fewer female "voters". (I'm not counting the generally small # of bi's either way, as they chose that "neither one nor the other" status).

Point One is about the misuse (IMO) of the term "pride". My gay friends, you've spent many years establishing that you're (to quote Lady Gaga) "Born This Way". I accept that, as do groups like the American Psychological Association. So kindly "take yes for an answer". I'm not "proud 2B straight", I just am. I suggest you dispense with the equivalent of being "proud" 2B brown-eyed, dark haired, left-handed (or any of many other inherited characteristics).

Point Two is a term (in the title of the thread this one was created as an intended reverse image of) "gay stuff". And OK, it needn't mean sex acts, a lot of "gender bending" by kids is non-sexual, like a boy collecting dolls for example. But the gays here almost never talk openly about being in love (not just physical sex acts) whereas straights do. (I did here eons ago, but the sexual innuendos get far more response). tterb was a gay exception, and posted eloquently BTW.

While I also posted ITT here (http://www.tennisforum.com/search.php?searchid=2248101), I used the search page for those by a girl who has long lived as a lesbian; her status gives her the credibility of "being there", unlike me. (Philbo effectively led the "opposing side", I just disagree with him). Re. bi's, I realize that bigots use the same slurs for them they do for "fully" gay men and lesbians. But I refuse to let the haters' definitions define ppl's identity. If a large preponderance of the bi community itself wanted that "separate" term dropped, it would be a different matter.

OK based on the reps I've been getting I think I need to clarify that I didn't actually get disowned by my family. :hysteric: I was just trying to highlight some things that non-LGBT people often take for granted.

I did, however, work in a very homophobic environment and pretended to be straight around my coworkers. Not the worst thing a gay guy has had to endure, sure, but it's still not something that pov will ever deal with. :oh:

Kissed a girl...but I was seven and quite the amateur kisser, so it doesn't really count. I looked at a picture of Geri Halliwell topless (maybe this barely counts as being straight) When I was in Lanzarote, I came across some packs of cards for sale with naked women on them. I was curious and there were some fleeting glances but I was quite horrified by how hairy one girl seemed to be down there. My memory is probably skewed but she seemed to have a mane covering her entire undercarriage all the way to her anus.

One thing I definitely wanted to do was take up karate. This was all the more straight as the karate school was right next door to my sister's ballet school, which I had no interest in. I would always ask if I could join the school and I was always told that I had to wait til next year. Eventually, I just stopped asking :( I think my desire to take up karate was because I loved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Although, Donatello was my favourite because he was smart. I had no time whatsoever for Leonardo. I found him to be quite pompous. I also liked Mask, Dinoriders and Transformers. I LOVED dinosaurs and Jurassic Park. I was super scared of the velociraptors but I was totally brave when it came to the T-Rex. That didn't phase me at all.

I used to play football, table football, air hockey. I liked bowling and laser-tag or "Quasar" as well called it (because the place was called Quasar) I used love running, sprinting and any kind of chasing game and I always had cuts and gashes and I have three scars - although only two are from my youth.

Wow paranoyed much?? You're one of the only ppl I actually believe is straight here. But seeing as you post on a women's tennis forum, you're obviously in touch with your feminine side.. I'm curious to know how you were as a kid!

Well I don't wanna start going into details as to why this is (although there are clear reasons) but just look at the ratio of gay/straight posters here and female/male posters.. And then compare it to a football or hockey forum..

Anus to bellybutton, girls can be hairy.

I saw some porn mags when I was a kid in the 80s and I remember thinking 'eww, those girls need to put a bikini on.'

Nothing, really. Everything I can actually remember was just saturated in gayness. :sobbing:

Well, I guess I played sports, but after mastering basketball and street hockey to fit in with my brother and his friends, I turned to things like women's tennis and gymnastics. At this point in my life I have an appreciation for all kinds of sports, which I'm thankful for. I actually think having grown up with an older brother who was a bit of a 'jock', so to speak, helped me develop some of my more 'masculine' tastes, and I'm somewhat thankful for that. If I was an only child I suspect I would be a lot more singular in my taste for 'feminine' things :lol: (not that there would be anything wrong with that, but I like who I am)...

PS. I realize the point of this thread and that many people take issue with the fact that people attach gender/sexuality labels to certain activities, but I really can't help it. Some things just tailor more to women and gay boys, and some stuff the opposite. I can't seem to shake myself of those distinctions. :sobbing: Maybe I'm just not enlightened enough, but as much as stereotypes can promote intolerance and be flat-out wrong, they also exist for a reason. I'll leave it at that.
