Gays and lesbians. Firstly, lets keep this CIVIL! I am not against gays and lesbians at all. I believe that if two people are in love they have a right to be together. I'm all for gay marriage and equal rights. This is not a thread to be nasty or derogatory so please keep any bad thoughts to yoursef.
There is something that I am really curious about but. I was watching a program last night with a lesbian lady, who dressed like a man, had a shaved head and tattoos all over her body. She walked like a man, talked like a man, etc etc. What gets me... is if a woman loves a woman, why does one need to act like a man?
It's the same with a lot of men, there are some that act like women. Why would a man need his man to act like a woman?
I'm confused about it.
It isn't about acting - its about being who you want to be.
It is a massive assumption to assume they "need" to act like any one gender at all, gay or straight. Like Cruxy said, you love someone for who they are - gender may be a part of that like Dani said, but to be assuming that a gender has a given list of characteristics, including appearance - well, its a bit limiting isn't it?
Alot of people are a gender stuck in the other gender's body - I think that's called transgender and it is a recognised "condition".
