Top Ten Reasons Not to Be Gay/Lesbian

This is not a hate list or anything like it. We all know being Homosexual comes with many negative connotations. What do you think are the worst?
The Top Ten
1 Having to put up with idiots that make top ten lists about why you shouldn't be gay.

I honestly can't think of if this list is homophobic or trying to sympathise with gays. If your trying to be homophobic then great work jerk, your doing a great job. If you're trying to sympathise with gays then you honestly don't know what your trying to do.

The Bible says that it is sinful to be homosexual. That's the same excuse racists used to justify slavery and racism. Plus that is inferring that people get into their teens and then decide to be gay to screw up society. It doesn't go like that people, most people are aware of their sexuality from a very young age. It is like being born with brown hair or brown eyes. Oh yeah, Hitler thought that was a sin too.

In 2015 we finally legalized gay marriage, but it took so long. Of course the amazing people did this, America had made up it's mind but why did it take so long? If a girl and girl are in love, or a boy and a boy are in love, they should be able to marry without one single being thinking it is wrong. I already see the changes happening, nobody calls stuff they don't like gay anymore and all my friends are ok with gays now, but their will always be idiots like the maker of this list who are against it and they will bang the bible and paraphrase a book written thousands of years ago, put religion before happiness.

Oh lord, I hate voting for things I disagree with just to prove a point. As it says in my little occupation, I am lesbian, so I have one thing to say about this. This list is wrong and just because you're homophobic, creator of this list, doesn't mean that you can make a list out of people being gay and classify as wrong. Humans actually are the only species to disapprove homosexuality, and since it's found in other animals, it's pretty natural I would say. But anyway, love is not a choice, and the number one vote is about you, isn't it? I honestly hope that this list is sarcastic. *Claps*

I think this is wrong. People should not make lists saying why people should be gay. I'm straight but I don't have a problem with gay people, most of them are actually very nice. I am a christian and do not support people being gay, however I don't hate or have a problem with anyone who does, or is gay. I think they should be treated equally.

2 It's considered by some to be a sin

I honestly don't even know why I'm looking at this list because I hate homophobes, but I think all you people putting stuff on this list should get a reality check.
God said to love everyone, "Love thy neighbor." So I SERIOUSLY doubt God would put someone in hell just for being gay.
I'm straight, but I support gay people. STOP hating people just because they love the same gender. Do you think people getting all this hatred just for liking people of their own gender what God would have wanted?

For all of those saying that god is love, so why would he have restrictions on love, it is important to note that there are different kinds of love. There is brotherly love, sexual love, etc. god loves us in an unconditional godly love. He does not love us in a sexual way. God doesn't want to marry me you. Homosexuality is a sexual love and god loves us in a different way. Therefore your argument about saying god is love, and gay is love, so god is gay, is wrong

A lot of people say that it is a sin and a lot of people say that it isn't, so I'm cracking it. God made men and women to have children, but back then they didn't have intelligence, so they weren't able to properly love. It never says anywhere in the Bible that Adam and Eve loved each other, they just did it because they had no choice, and in my opinion that is wrong. There is more to love than having kids, that's more shallow than lust. I think the true intentions of God was to have humans survive, and their are enough straight people for more kids to be born, in fact over population is a problem now. Also, you have to keep in mind that not everyone on this site is Christian, so to some people the Bible is nothing, and that makes you look like your having a big fuss over nothing. Everyone on this site has respected Christians and their religion, and they need to respect us.

Leviticus also gives chapter after chapter of in-depth ways to slaughter and sacrifice animals. We don't do that anymore. Many verses used to combat homosexuality is from the Old Testament, and Jesus came and changed all of that. Making those verses invalid. Jesus never mentioned homosexuality, and everywhere else its mentioned is by humans, who could very well be wrong. Would God allow a flaw in the bible? I don't know, but what I do know is that humans are flawed, and the chances of something ungodly to have made it in the bible is possible. Even then, the bible itself is not a "do or don't" manual. Its ultimate message is love and be kind to everyone while spreading the good news. And loving who you love is not a sin.

3 Having to accept the rainbow as your sign

Actually you don't. Or some of you don't anyway.

Listen if your a girl who dates girls you have a different sign and if your a pansexual you have a different sign and so on. See?

Rainbows are hecka cool, dude don't come at me. Honestly I'm not a lesbian, I'm bi, as well as asexual, which means I've romantically liked both girls and boys, but don't come at me dude, when pride month comes around I go to a pride party with some gay dudes and rainbows are hung up all round the house, don't come at me.

To be fair, I never liked the rainbow - looks way too forced but at the same time it's great because it celebrates diversity of people like diversity of colours. It's still not bad to be gay though.
Also no one's being forced to accept the rainbow as their symbol.

What if African Americans had that sign, is that a reason to stop being black! Being gay is not a choice!

4 Being labeled as feminine/masculine instead of gay male/gay female

It really sucks when you're a lipstick lesbian (girly lesbian). No one believes you're gay. It's like, really? I have to act all rough, tough, edgy, and like a boy to like other girls? I can rock my heels and gush over a fine lady, thank you.

Depends on how you pose yourself and why. If you feel more feminine/masculine, then you should go for it. Society accepts it more than in straight relationships due to the gay steriotypes.

I think there is a sexuality where you prefer a sex but you can do with the other, its not bisexual, just look it up!

Gay guys are girly and gay girls are boyish. It's not offensive, it's the truth.

5 Being embarrassed in public

If people think it should be shamed upon or made fun of to show you affection to someone of the same gender in public, then shame on them.

And what exactly is embarrassing about someone loving the same gender? They're at least happy with that person. So you'd rather they be in a relationship with someone of the opposite gender they're not as happy with?

I have a friend who is in and he takes major offense to this bull! Probably why he and I are both atheists! Because the theists say is mostly crap!

Who cares about what random people think of you?

6 Not having to enjoy Wham! But loving Coldplay

I'm not gay and many other people who like Coldplay aren't either. They're one of the best bands of all time and how dare you say loving coldplay is
1. A Bad Thing
2. An Effect of Being Gay/Lesbian?
Besides, who really cares about wham? You must truly not know music not to love Coldplay.

Is that an insult to Coldplay or something? Coldplay is my favorite band, but how does this relate to homosexuality? I love Coldplay and I'm not a lesbian. Why is this on the list?

I mean come on what even is this bullcrap you're putting on the lists? Coldplay is awesome and I don't even know what the hell wham is.

W T F is "wham! " Also, Colplay is amazing. Don't think so? Check out Paradise or Beautiful World.
Coldplay is inspiration.

7 Sex won't be as good

Actually the sex can be even better with 2 men... We both have tools and holes. It works out quite nicely... I don't know about lesbians but I do know about sleeping with men and women. Trust me... 2 men can be quite fun..

I've been with over 60 different girls in my life up to age 25. Been with about 10 dudes since.

I can honestly say, same sex sex, is much much hotter. Guys know what guys want I guess and same for the chicks.

Oh baby. You've obviously never had a gay threesome. When your P-stot and your gentleman's sausage are being teased at the same time... Way better than just having normal sex.

Look up, Ten Things I Hate About Homophobes. Men have G spots in their butts that women don't have, plus you get each other more socially.

8 Being disowned by your religion

I'd like to think my church would be accepting of gay members. But I'm honestly apprehensive. Homosexual or not, if they want to know or already know God, we should be just as supportive.

By my religion? A lot of religions accept being gay. Also does the Bible actually say you can't date the same gender?

Some don't have religion

I have no religion

9 Not being accepted into society

Society, society...
If you don't accept me, well then hell, I don't accept you. I am who I am and I like who I am. Screw you, society, because Imma lesbian and that doesn't make me any less beautiful, pretty, smart, etc than you straight sexuality people. And I'm sure that EVERYONE on this list is pretty/handsome, loved, respected, and amazing human beings, gay or lesbian, homo, straight, transsexual, any love life, any anything. God will always watch over you and he loves you. Even though we've probably never met, I'm sure I love all of you TheTopTenners too.


I'm 14 and I'm bisexual and people get very surprised how comfortable I am with my sexuality. People tell me that gays/ lesbians really don't belong in this world and that were all going to hell. But I rather be different and be myself and be comfortable, than try to fit in with society. I have a girlfriend and I'm proud of it

Our society is becoming more and more welcoming to the gay community.. In case you haven't noticed, we can all get married now too..There will always be people out in the world that will have a beef with you.. Be it that your color, religion,sexual practices or whatever. You deal with them like any other obnoxious jerk you meet in this world

Our society is at fault here. People have this stupid idea that our society is perfect, but it is very twisted and hypocritical. It disturbs me that people feel the need to try hard to fit into it.

10 Going against the procreation of humanity

Having children is an ignorant thing to do anyways. Especially in countries like India and China. And I don't mean I want the human race to die out but we should have way less children. The world is overpopulated

The world is overpopulated and humanity is exhausting its resources. In reality, homosexuality is pretty beneficial. We don't need every single couple on earth to produce children.

So overpopulation is good! You're not gonna stop gays from being gay just like your not going stop African Americans from being African American.

You know that without gay/lesbian people, the world would be more overpopulated right? So in other words, being gay actually helps the human race.

The Contenders
11 Being hated by religious people

Branches of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are NOT idiotic. Calling them 'idiotic' makes YOU the hater. You wouldn't want to see that item in reverse: 'Idiotic homosexuals hating your religion.'

Wow! Good for them, but is it really worth not being able to love who you want?

The bible says that marriage is between a man and a woman.

This argument is retarded. Jesus said to love everyone. keep your friends close and your friends closer

12 Idiots hating you

No one cares about idiots hating them though.

Kinda funny sometimes

13 To avoid obnoxious top 10 lists that tell you why you shouldn't love who you want

This needs to be at 1!

Can we get this to #1?

Like this one!

14 Hate crimes

I'm not gay but I don't hate gay people. Also, this argument is stupid! Don't you think that the real criminals are the haters here? It's a one way argument unless you can say and prove that all gay people hates straight people. The truth is that gay people don't hate straight people. They will maybe hate someone who beat them up but but even than it will be not their fault. They didn't do anything wrong ( it's their life ). And like one of the comment says " every crime is a hate crime " meaning that straight people will hate straight people as well if they're beaten up for some reasons. Being hated is not an exclusive argument for the gay community.

I think a lot of these aren't to be worried about. If your happy who cares? The only thing that is to worry about is Hate crimes because whoever made up the majority of these insults obviously has taken the thought or already been in a hate crime. I mean, come on. Imagine if being Homo-sexual became as normal as being straight. I think it would shut every one up after many legal issues.

Alright, this is a long one, so sit back and read this whether you are pro LGBT or not.

I'm a 12 year old from Australia and yes I'm Christian.

Before you start thinking that I carry signs around saying "rise up the world is a lie! " Or "god hates" or "kill all gays" no, I don't. I don't want to kill and mutilate gays but I certainly don't support their lifestyle either. Why? It's a sin in the bible (sorry folks, my beliefs and what I believe is true!) and the are a lot of them I find through out my experience are big hypocrites themselves. You might think I'm just a Aussie boy who knows nothing about it but trust me I do. Before I move on don't get mad at me after all it's only my opinion. Well to start with, the hate crime stuff is massively filled with hypocrites. For example, Christians are seen as gay haters, but no one mentions the Muslims. The hate gays, Muhammad married a 9 yr old girl, they KILL infidels and a bunch of other stuff. If I say openly that I don't ...more

We're not demons. We won't try to make you become gay. So why are people so scared of us? Seriously, why would people hate us? "Homosexual" doesn't mean "Rapist."

15 Being disowned by your family

Once you become an adult, and your guardians are no longer required to take care of you, their approval isn't needed. So if your family does disown you, remember you are an adult and you can live the way you want to.

PROTIP: do not ever come out to your parents if they believe that gays are "sinners" or some other crap. Once you move out, you're free.

Fortunately, lots of parents are excepting and supportive in America.

Not if they really love you.

16 Suicidal thoughts

That's some people, but are you really being that black and white about gays always wanting to kill themselves? So many gay people are happy and have never considered killing themselves.

More like a reason you should stop bullying people that are gay/lesbian just because they like someone of the same gender.

And they have suicidal thoughts because of things like this list.

Being gay is the worst I have suicidal thoughts everyday because I'm gay... lucky straight people

17 You cannot have biological offspring with your partner

You could go to a sperm bank and get a sperm donor. But honestly I would feel highly uncomfortable with having someone that I barely ever met of hung out with being the father of my child.

Perhaps biologically, but of course there's always the option of adopting a child. Whether I'm bisexual or not, doesn't matter. Either way I'm adopting.

If you are lesbians, you can go to a lab and convert one of your stem cells to a sperm in join it with the others egg.

Adoption? Sperm banks?
Adopted kids aren't biologically yours, but hey, using sperm banks can bare babies.

18 Having to enjoy Wham! Having to enjoy Wham!

Yeah, and what's so bad about that? I love Wham!

Heh heh heh I'm uber gay and I love Wham!

You don't have to enjoy anything.

19 The stereotypes that people judge by
20 People will make fun of you

Obviously, no one is safe from bullying in either sexuality.

Well, just try to kiss them. If it's a boy say "maybe I'm not." If it's a girl say "But I love you."

Yeah, irrelevant people.

21 How to tell your parents you're gay?

Walk out of a closet wearing rainbow clothes & sunglasses, look 'em dead in the eye & say, "I'm gay.".

Again, if they really love you, they will support you.

Best if you don't

22 There are more than 75 countries where homosexuality is illegal

Most of them are countries where almost everything is illegal. Most of them are countries so poor and underdeveloped as the mentality of their citizens. Between Sudan and Sweden, make your choice.

And whose fault is that?
The fault of the homophobes who made it illegal in the first place!

Nigeria, they're very religious and may kill the people of the lgbt+ community. That didn't stop Bobrisky, a transgender woman.

Move to a better country.

23 The person you like may not be gay

That is not 100% true because if you're straight the person you might like could be gay or lesbian

24 It is punishable by death in Islamic countries

Based on the islamic rules, gay/lesbian who had ever had a sex, should jump from the tallest point/building at the same time people throwing rocks to them until they fall and die. And eventually they get into heaven.

This isn't Islam and whoever added this is a retard.
