  1. ^^^^^^ Yup.
  2. Good question! Off the top of my head, I would think the negative consequences would be the obvious ones...ridicule from peers, or perhaps embarrassment that their parents don't follow the cultural norm. That could certainly damage their self esteem. Alternately, I think some potential positive consequences would be parents who are secure in their identities and are able to stand up for themselves. I think that would make them a strong role model for their children. There is a lot of information about this specific topic. Here are a few articles I glanced over... My link My link My link I think we are just seeing the tip of the iceberg here. There have been studies done, but I'm guessing there will be many more because this is such a controversial issue right now.
  3. Interesting points! I'll admit, I grew up in a conservative area so I fell right into that line of thinking. I'm still mostly conservative, with a few exceptions, but this particular issue doesn't bother me. I did a little reading and found this article...My link I particularly liked this quote. It pretty much sums up how I feel about it..."From my perspective, it comes down to common sense. If it helps some people and it doesn't hurt anyone, why not let in happen."
  4. To further explore the original topic and maybe come up with a little food for thought... What would be the potential positive or negative consequences if gay marriage were legal nationwide? We're all for it or against it for a reason...what is that reason? (or reasons) I don't have a problem with it and I can't even name one earth shattering reason why. I guess I'm kind of a live and let live type person.
  5. I was just trying to get a grasp on exactly where you're coming from. I didn't realize questioning was the wrong thing to do on this debate board or that it would imply I wouldn't "get it".
  6. So you're basing your entire argument on the physical aspects of a gay relationship to try to show it is unnatural? What about the studies that have shown occasional homosexual tendencies in animals? If procreation was nature's singular purpose, how would you explain that? And I don't understand what your last paragraph has to do with any of it?
  7. It happens in the brain, yet goes against nature? As opposed to something that happens in the brain that doesn't go against nature? That is a contradiction. Can you elaborate?
  8. The Bumble just informed me he would like some of that popcorn too. You can just leave it with me. I'll make sure he gets it. ETA-I checked out the link and I don't see where scientists say being gay is isn't supposed to happen. I saw where they said gay men's brains respond differently to the pheromones of other gay men, which means gay men are attracted to gay men. I suspected this all along.
  9. I don't know about the rest of you, but when I pronounce "thingy" in my head, I sound like Forrest Gump.
  10. The Bumble was my attempt at a play on words...abomination/abominable snowman...I'm funny in my own world.
  11. Relationships go slightly beyond whose "thingy" goes where.
  12. Is this who you're talking about? Didn't you hear? He changed...
  13. Good point! My daughter is thinking about nursing school. Now I'm more curious about the particulars. She'll love being interrogated by me!
  14. Very interesting! Do you think the trend now is more to "shove them out the door and let them learn on the job?"
  15. Gay marriage? And here I just got used to having an indoor outhouse. Seriously, though, I don't have a problem with gay marriage.
