how does your community and you yourself treat this situation?how do you define your interaction with these individuals?.............in our community(a small town)homosexuality/lesbianism is not that well accepted yet...the tendency of these individual is to migrate to other places wher they are accepted...i cant seem to understand the attitude of the people in my town...i had a friend who was a homosexual then he was afraid to show his real self for fear of mockery and bulliying etc..,(he hid his feelings inside a closet so to speak)after we graduated in highschool i heared that his parents denounced him for being homosexual(particularly his dad)i never heared from him since then....i mean they are human too...though they are of different inclination compared to regular man or woman...they should be treated as such same as us isnt it?i do understand their situation because i have some gay friends too they are my fiancee's office mates.(homosexuAlaity nor lesbianism is not a descease...its the attitude towards it that should be considerd as a descease) PEACE!

I don't see anything wrong with being "different" from others. I mean, it's a choice that they make right? Here, in our country, I guess you can say that lesbianism and homosexualism is slowly being accepted. I myself don't have anything against them, I have a lot of friends who are gay and honestly, I sometimes find them more vibrant and more artistic than regular people. (lol.) People talk about the bible and that that being "different" is bad and immoral. I guess that may be true. It's a question of faith yet we are not God to judge them... So I guess we should let it be. We have our own lives to worry about right? =)

I like the last statement that you've made and I do believe that to be so. I think our community treat them like they deserve and they are more welcome now than before. I had alot of gay friends when I was in high school and I have not seen them since then. I do enjoy their company. They are people just like the rest of us.
