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.

Really, my idol was bi, and do I look like I care? If Freddie Mercury was happy (I really hope he was), should anything happy. I'm not a homosexual, and I wouldn't care if I was, and neither would anyone else. Whatever floats your boat. And number 2 really makes me mad. Increased risk of an STD? This is disturbing. What kind of society do we live in where states don't even allow gay marriage! GIVE PEOPLE RIGHTS! It's the personality and the you beside that that counts!

Everyone here is such a homophobic person. I can think of at least two people, amazing people, that were gay (Elton John, Ellen DeGeneres). I don't see what the difference is. If you like a guy as a guy, WELL THEN YOU DO. (No, I am not a homosexual, but I stand for the right of other people, can't I? ) I don't see what's so wrong about this. It isn't a sin in my book, anyway. WHY ISN'T SOCIETY NICE TO MOST PEOPLE OR EVERYONE?!

You love someone for their personality, not their sexual prefferences. Homosexuals are the same as anyone else, and why do people think it's right to act prejudice towards them? - Nejixchan

2 It's a sin

While I do prefer to be in the arms of a man and be kissed, make love to and be loved by a man, how can you say who you fall for is a sin? You simply have no control over whom you fall in love with. Love is not a sin. To love and be loved is a gift from God. Please don't turn it into something cheap and sordid. - Britgirl

PREACH IT BRITGIRL! And my favorite singer was a homosexual, Freddie Mercury. - Derpyderpderpderp

Okay, to those people who are saying that you will burn in the pits of hell if you aren't a Christian, are you suggesting that Mahatma Gandhi should go to hell while Adolf Hitler should be praised and lifted to the highest place in eternal heaven just because of their beliefs?

I'm not a Christian I'm actually really opposed to Christianity but you obviously don't understand Christianity and you also don't understand Hitler. Hitler claimed to be a Christian only to gain political support from the people and in private was an anti-Christian atheist. If he did believe he was a Christian (he didn't) he wouldn't have gone to heaven because being Christian isn't about having certain beliefs it's about forgiveness of sins. So if Hitler truly understood the wrongness of actions and was sorry for them and trusted in Jesus he would go to heaven. That didn't happen because he was an atheist and cause no heaven/hell. - maverick88

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.

What if the person doesn't know what Christianity is and has no idea exists, then whats stops them? - Lucretia

3 Having to accept the rainbow as your sign

Yes but it's SOO SWEET... - georgegoony

That is reasons TO BE homo. Rainbows are awesome. - AnonymousChick

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

There is a different sign for lesbian. It contains various shades of pink and red. - BlueberryCatfish

4 Increased risk of STDs

I've read the whole of this list and I agree with the title - I have nothing against gay/lesbian people and I think they are treated harshly but I believe that many things can go wrong from being gay or lesbian. Bullying for example. However, this isn't the gay/lesbian's fault so the world should treat them the same as anyone else and this list wouldn't have been created. - jmepa1234

Condoms were invented.

This is the only item on this list that makes sense! Besides this, no negatives. Although being bisexual doesn't infer that you have intercourse... - Flowersocks2137

Yes, but straight people also get them - Lucretia

5 Being disowned by your religion

Actually, some have no religion

So religion is more important than being happy, since when - Lucretia

6 Being embarrassed in public

... Because of jerks who call you out and tease you about stuff you can't control.
It's a bit like bullying someone for their hair colour, but at least you can dye your hair. - Flamesofsilver

Who cares about what random people think of you?

The issue is when you get picked on constantly, this is a problem in schools and some workplaces as you can't get away from them. In general, yes, it's good to have that mindset of not caring what others think, but you shouldn't have to put up with being treated like trash. - Flamesofsilver

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!

Yes, but that's not a reason to avoid same sex relationships. - Lucretia

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

I'm a gay man and I love Hockey and Sports. - DeVillMan

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.

I'm not gay, but I know lesbians who have to be "tomboys" in order to be known as a lesbian

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.

8 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. - Matthewn1999

There is more to love than having children. Children are only a small part of a couple's relationship.

*sigh* Isn’t this something to be proud of? I an asexual, and I’m hella proud of who I am

9 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. - yaygiants16

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

Your family isn't importat - Lucretia

10 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.

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. ...more

God loves everyone. Also, there is no such thing as a "homosexual lifestyle". Gay people are just people who happen to prefer their own gender. - Absolite

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.

So many of them. But this doesn't mean you should change your orientation - ParkerFang

12 Suicidal thoughts

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

That's a very small percentage of the population which is brought up because of the very few cases and when was the last time you even heard about a suicidal case that happened because of sexuality

I feel sorry for the person that said that he/or she have suicidal thoughts because they're gay( Thanks for calling me and the other straight people lucky though! - Jessicarabbit

That's not just homosexuals. - Lucretia

13 Not being accepted into society

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 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.

People commit suicide because of this so it makes me laugh when people say it is a choice.

A lot of people aren't accepted in society. But if you handle it right, and then you can be accepted.I am not homosexual, but I can see - Lucretia

14 Your biological family tree could end/no kids

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.

Your family tree will end. Adoption isn't your kids. Your BIOLOGICAL genes will not be passed down.

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. - Flowersocks2137

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. - BlueberryCatfish

16 Not having to enjoy Wham! But loving 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? - Merilille

Umm, I think this is on the wrong list. Like maybe "Best Things About Being Home schooled" - Fintan

Musical tastes in wham and Coldplay have nothing to do with being gay or straight

Meaning... - Lucretia

17 Sex won't be as good

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.

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.. - shanew

I guess you'll never really know though if you've never done it with the opposite gender. - dipperpinesfangirl618

Just out of curiosity, HOW the HECK are two people of the same sex going to... - RockFashionista

Since when was this a reason not to be gay? - Lucretia

19 It's weird

What the heck is wrong with the reasons on here? It's not weird. It's natural, get over it. - Spokane

Don't you think that this is subjective? Since human kind exist there were gay people. Just accept the fact that it's a natural fact of life.

You know what else is weird? Everything most people do! - AngryByrd

If you didn't stuff because it was weird, them how boring the world would be. - Lucretia

21 Embarrassment
22 Does physical harm to body

Anus is a one way gate orifice. Things should be coming out of it but not the opposite. - Luray

When people have anal sex it damages your anus and when you grow old you'll begin to leak unhealthy fluids.

So, what you're saying is that as soon as you realize that you're gay, you experience chronic pain? - BeatlesFan1964

Being homosexual can hurt? - Lucretia

23 Having to enjoy Wham!

I like Wham, well George Michael, and I'm 99.999999% sure I'm not gay. - BeatlesFan1964

Yeah, and what's so bad about that? I love Wham! - FennikenFan9

24 Being called a f*****

In what cases?
Why was this list even allowed to be made? - Flamesofsilver

In some cases you might deserve that

F***** was a punishment given to homosexuals in the middle ages, where the person would be put into a barrel with spikes sticking through it. The barrel would then be set on fire and rolled down a hill.

Still think some people ''deserve'' it?

25 How to tell your parents you're gay?

1. Walk up to them, say ''i'm gay'' and walk away.

2. When your homophobic uncle says ''Thank our Lord there are no gays in this family'' say ''SURPRISE BITCH''.

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

Whoever put this is a genius - Absolite

This is a stupid list in my opinion #lovewins

27 It's icky

Now these thoughts are what proves you have the mindset of a three year old.
Let me explain.
When you were younger, you probably saw people kissing or hugging (whether gay or not), and thought 'Ew, that's disgusting'
But as you got older, you realized that they just really liked each other, and were showing affection.
And if you still think people showing affection is 'icky'.
Take a look at yourself. - Flamesofsilver

Ow if people did not do icky stuff... people would eat meat and wear fur - Lucretia

Who wants to bet Revol added this? - Therandom

You sound just like a b*tchy girl

28 It's Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve

NOT EVERYONE IS Christian! Some don't even have a religion and those who say atheism is bad, remember: your religion could be wrong. I'm not against religion, but no religion can be proven right or wrong.

The word of a few people is not proof. The majority of people in Greece used to believe/say that Greek gods existed, but obviously you don't believe that's right. - Flamesofsilver

But Adam and Eve caused the downfall of humanity so I wouldn't consider them role models. - CatCode

STOP IT WITH THE Christian REFRENCES! I'm legitly most sincerely NOT against Christainity at all, though this is a dumb list, and I'm tired of all these Christian refrences on the internet saying that it's the best religion ever and the only one that's good or whatever. It's our opinion and part of the First Amendment is FREEDOM OF RELIGION, so please stop with all of these Christianity refrences that make it sound like what it isn't and leave everyone else alone. So please don't try to hate me, but that's just how I feel about all of these comments that say very extreme like stuff about Christianity. And also those types of comments can hurt other people's feelings like hard so be careful of what you say on the internet. - Anonymousxcxc

Not everyone likes Christianity - Lucretia

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." - AnonymousChick

When two girls make out its actually kinda arousing ;p - abc126

Not a reason - Lucretia

31 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.

32 Harder to find true love

My dad said that Seattle was the world's gay Capitol.

Or you could just move to San Francisco. - ethanmeinster

33 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. - pitralon

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

Way to be original, Biggot - DeVillMan

40 It's just stupid

Do you know whats even dumber a straight girl having sex with a man as a freshman in high school

This lost is sickening and full of homophobic people. I'm not even gay or a Christian but if the Christian God talked to me he wouldn't probably hate gay people.

It doesn't make sense to me but I respect gay people.

No this list is... - Lucretia

41 You will die and burn forever

Bull crap. I guess then I'm gonna go to hell because lust, cursing, and gluttony are sins! I know plenty of Christian homosexuals. They are no more sinful than anybody else, and they will go to Heaven. This list is rude, and in this case, false. - AngryByrd

The problem with homophobes is that they only focus on homosexuality, but they forget about their own sins, such as adultery, lying, wrath, envy, etc. - ethanmeinster

Eating shellfish, wearing clothes of two different fabrics? Evil! To hell with you.

What is wrong with you people?! Telling gays they'll be tortured forever for loving someone is bull crap!
