Finally we're going to start discussing, arguing and criticizing! Phew~!
Ok, I decided to give you the first push. You said you like some controversial issues, and here I am exploring one of the most controversial topics. Let me hear your opinions.
I remember, at one point of my life, that I used to condemn homosexuals and look down upon them. However, my whole attitude changed after I read this article somewhere which presented the "other" truth about people who are sexually attracted to their own gender. The article exposed a number of interviews with people who have undergone this kinda operation to change their sex! At first, i was like YUCK! What are these people thinking exactly, but as I told you, after I finished reading i really felt sympathetic!
There are actually two kinds of homosexuals. Those who have a problem with their "feelings" as in they're attracted to people of the same gender, and those who have a problem with their "genitals" as in they are born with both male and female genital organs. I don't want to go into details because i want to hear you talk, but i'll just make it brief. I think that the former type suffers from a psychological disorder. You never know WHY he/she is attracted to their own sex, which is strange enough! May be they had a bad experience as children and they're displacing their mistreatment sexually when they became mature. On the other hand, those who are born with both genitals really suffer! They feel they're "living in a body that's not their own" as explained in that article. Medical doctors say that the latter type MUST undergo this kind of operation to be able to go on, and they stress that they never do this operation to those who don;t need because of course they meet up with cases who just want to undergo the operation for the sake of changing their gender and that's it!!! (but what about doctors who have do not respect their profession?)
The real problem is: how are we supposed to deal with these people particularly as individuals and generally as a society which considers all "sexual" issues a tabboo! I myself can't imagine myself dealing with a lesbian! Sure, i wont feel easy even if i try to convince myself, but at the same time i guess i should respect this kind of sickness! According to me, homosexuality is nothing but a certain deform ...there are no proofs that it is a result of "wrong genes." In that way, it CAN be treated! Also if we look at the natural order of life, we will find that the whole issue is contradicting to the reality created by God.
Homosexuals, in my point of view, should have same rights as "straight" people because some of them are even more productive! However, when it comes to personal interaction i prefer to just avoid them without hurting their feelings.
So?? Com'on wanna see ur ESSAYS!!!
