Another View On Homosexuality

Recommended Posts

Guest April63

This past week I had an interesting conversation with a friend of mine who is a member of the same church as me. He told me about his childhood. When he was young, he acted more femininely than the other boys, and some even began to make fun of him for it. This unfortunate occurrence caused him to step away from the church, and he later began to question his sexuality. He dated several men and women, and eventually found a woman to marry. He has since returned to the church.

I respect this man because he has gone through a lot of things that he should not have been subjected to, but in the end, he overcame any issues he had and returned to the church. He saw past the people's problems and saw the greater good in the church. But what I find most interesting is his view of homosexuality. He believes that homosexual people have a gift that most of us do not. And that gift is the ability to feel more attached to and to be able to love more strongly the same gender. He then continued that their issue is that they do not know how to express this increased love and attachment.

What do you think? Do you think that transgenderism could have a similar explanation? Or does this explanation deserve no merit?

I would say that it's quite true. Since it's so easy for a straight couple, I see gay or lesbian love as more valuable than a straight love. Simply because those of us who are in the fight for gay rights know just how hard we have to fight for it.

      Welcome, Tali. I'm so glad you found the courage to say hello to TransPulse. I hope you find this a welcoming and informative place, and a safe place to just be yourself. I also have social anxiety and have found life my complicated with my transgender issues. But, I have found support here, and I'm fortunate to have a few people in my life who accept me. I hope you also find the support you want/need as you make your journey, which will provide happiness too. The happiness will come!!   Gwen

      It sounds like you have a good plan for the future and are getting through the present difficulties with a grace that deserves praise.  I remember the humiliation of being called by my male name in crowded waiting rooms.  Those times were instrumental in getting me to make the necessary steps to change my legal status. HRT and living as yourself are certainly major steps along your journey as is finding a style that works well and makes you feel comfortable as yourself. Thanks for the update and happy birthday!   Hugs,   Charlize

        Hi Mary,   I have slightly more than 20 good trans female friends that I speak with on at least a weekly basis. I have never felt alone and if I really need someone to talk to there is always someone nearby. My friends situation is very different. Don't know what the stats are but there appear to be far less FTM than MTF humans out there. That is stating the friend situation only for him. Now, since he's attracted to cis females, the numbers diminish even further. No clue for how many cis women are looking for transmales  but the number seems to be like really really low. So, to me, online dating is a no brainer.  I've checked a few places and the suggestions on dating sites are not many.   Good for you doing the online dating thing. I as well think we should be up front about who we are and I also think it can be safe providing that common sense is used       I really appreciate your view,   Tess

        Thanks Vicky. Some people like very much to be part of a couple, me being one of them. Good luck at your weddings!!!

      Hi Tali, one thing that helped me was getting out of the house and meeting others. My family members all responded differently  to it. My nephews were pretty much a shrug. It took time for some to come to terms with it too.   Welcome to Transpulse!  hugs, Marcie
