Society today sure does make a huge fuss over gays and lesbians. But if you read back to the days of Plato and Aristotle, homosexuality was probably as common as eating dinner. (Or at least it sure seems like it). Why do you think society's view points have changed so much over the centuries?

ya know you are right about this and I can't understand why people of today can't grasp that fact. Its nothing new and it isn't going to go away so why can we just all get along??? I think the key here is for everyone to be educated on the subject of homosexuality.

I think you're quite right about that.

This is a very interesting concept, and I am going to do some research and reading about the days of Plato and Aristotle- it always helps to have a different viewpoint. Can you recommend any reading in particular?

Thanks for the link (we are allowed to post links, I think-I do it all the time). I am going to do some reading on this; your question made me think, and I would like to get some idea where society started to change their thoughts and when we became so "homophobic".
