Since my show of support for the folks over at The Muscat Queer Theory there's been a couple of comments and a few emails from the following:
1. People Who Are Uneducated
2. People Who Are Bigoted
3. People Who Are Both
Since so many of you are itching to know my views on this, here they are.
We are all born gay and straight - all at once.
"What?", "No!", "How dare you!" "May God strike you down!" - well, guess what.....he hasn't!
The truth is that we are.
There's potential for people to walk down one path, or another - or even retrace their steps on a regular basis and try both.
That, my dear readers is the reality of this world.
Some of you may think that the above is sick.
Some of the zealots among you, think it is even worth oppressing, jailing and in some cases killing someone over.
I am heterosexual. I love girls (and have a particular penchant for Asians) - I always have and always will.
The thoughts of sleeping with a member of the same sex does not appeal to me.
It never has.
However, for some people, it does.
And for others who are bisexual, they feel that they get the best of both worlds - and in their model of the world, they do.
But I do not label them sick, or weird, or worthy of punishment - and those of you who either email or comment to me with your misguided drivel about what you would like to do to these "vermin" "Infidels" or "sinners" need to take a serious look at yourselves.
A good quote I have read about the issue is from a very unlikely source - Billy Joe Armstrong from the rock-group Green Day.
"I think I've always been bisexual. I mean, it's something that I've always been interested in. I think people are born bisexual, and it's just that our parents and society kind of veer us off into this feeling of 'Oh, I can't.' They say it's taboo. It's ingrained in our heads that it's bad, when it's not bad at all. It's a very beautiful thing."
I'll eagerly await the landslide of abuse from the morons - but would also appreciate comments from the smart people too!
