Top 10 Reasons the Reasons Why Not to Be Gay/Lesbian List Should Be Taken Down


The Top Ten

1 It's offensive

I was searching up "gay" to see if anyone approved of them. What I found? "Top Ten Reasons not to be Gay." What is wrong with this world?! If you believe in God, God never really cared if people were straight, if you don't believe in god (like me, or have some other religion,) give me ONE. REASON. Why being gay is wrong. 1 reason, that's all I ask. I've even had to show people in person why being gay is fine.

It is a very offensive and insensitive list, and quite clearly created as homophobic act!
Everyone should be accepting of each other and respect peoples paths in life (as long as your not doing something that is hurting others it is fine).

Being homosexual is a perfectly natural thing! - SidneyHando

Actually being gay/lesbian isn't natural. It's a crime against nature and goes against the Bible. - LordDovahkiin

That moment when you're a pansexual Christian and you're scared of other Christians because of things like this

2 Most of the commenters who agree with it are Christians

That is a discriminatory and stereotypical remark.
Well the church actually made it illegal and threw people into prison for centuries.
Christianity caused the law.

And how do you (the person who added this to this list) know that most of them were Christians? I happen to be a Christian, but I didn't write on that list! Many Christians did not write on that list. I'm not saying that Christians aren't mean sometimes (everyone is at SOME point). People who are Christian are still gay/lesbian. Someone at my church has a lesbian daughter! This part of the list isn't entirely true. While some Christians might have commented on the reasons why not to be gay/lesbian list, not all of them were. But I do agree that that should be taken down. I'm not lesbian or gay, but I agree that it's offensive to those who are lesbian or gay. The only reason I commented on this thing on the list is because I felt that it isn't entirely true. Yes, some Christians can speak out against LGBT society, but not all of them do. I still do believe that that list should be taken down. We are all still part of God's creation and family, no matter what culture, race, or sexuality ...more

They all quote the bible. you know, religion meddles with everything from wars to science to being who you are. I'm not against religion, I'm just against how some people can't look past what the bible says and make people unhappy for it. it's incredibly selfish of you to point to a bible and say "here's a list of reasons why I should make your life miserable". I mean have some common sense Christians! - Songsta41

If you disagree with it, then fine. That doesn't give you the grounds to ask admin to take down the list, anyway. It would just block opinions and information.

3 People actually agree with it

I agree with it, though I'm not a homophobe.

Yes you are.

4 It's stereotypical

It's stupid

5 Almost all of the reasons are Christian related

Atheism and other religions are another case. I wonder why certain Christians disagree with it, though.

Not everyone is Christian, so the Christian reasons aren't exactly valid.

What's wrong with being gay? A sexual preference is only a tiny percentage of who you are. - Catlover2004

Whatever you have against Christianity, I suggest you see my latest list. In fact, I think that list should stay up. I'm all for gay rights-and I find #1 on that list the greatest reflection of how attitudes are changing, and I find it to be both hilarious and awesome that #1 is #1 (see list! ) - keycha1n

6 It's hypocritical

They say that, "People will make lists about it and annoy you." Then... Why did you make the list? - MontyPython

No, stupid, someone added it, at the end of the top ten, and it was voted to number one.

7 It's a perfect example of stupidity

Define the word "stupid". And justify your statement.

8 It's homophobic

Ultimate reason. I'm straight but I think gays have rights - TwilightKitsune

We do. - PatrickStar3

9 It's basically saying that all its opinions are right

Who the hell said that? There's no such thing as right and wrong.

10 The comments get way too out of hand

They got out of hand for not reading the description of the list.

The Contenders

11 It makes others feel bad
12 It makes people ashamed of who they are
13 It's hurtful
14 The Adam and Steve comment
15 It's completely biased
16 It's ignorant

But it makes me laugh that my queer existence causes them so much turmoil. :)

Stay fabulous folks and twirl on dem haters. - Shingles

17 Very stupid reasons

Freedom of speech, plus there's WAY worse on this site.

This should be number 1 - DubstepLover

18 It doesn't make sense
19 It's disgusting
20 It's weird
21 It seems as if the user regrets it
22 Because I don't believe in freedom of speech, unless that person is saying something that I agree with.
