I am posting this article on the request made by a reader a few days ago, who was completely against gays and lesbians.
[Added text :] Strictly from my point of view :
In most cases, these mentioned persons probably had a bad childhood or bad experience in his/her life. Sometimes, these people feel attracted by their own sex since they have grown up in an environment where he/she lived close together without getting an opportunity to discover people from the other sex.
I won’t be too long, but IMHO, everyone should be allowed to live their life, as long as they don’t disturb you.
Of course, the society may find it unacceptable but have they harmed you? They simply want to lead a peaceful life, that’s all.
The look of the society fears them, making them live in a different world. Judging people only because you don’t like things the way they are can be the wrong way to see things. We should consider the childhood, family life and how does that person live.
But (there is always a but :P) as someone said to me, this may have some implications. Some of these couples usually want to adopt a child, and this can be some sort of harassment for the grown up child.
I guess that they would like to have their own little world far away from the reality, but we are not there yet.
Live and let live!
Should our society accept them?
