ive got 2 kids, boys aged 10 and 12 and there starting to ask questions regarding what they saw on eastenders thursday night, 2 blokes kissing. im not anti gay or anything allthough i think its wrong and not natural which brings me to my point.

if things like this are shown, and there in all soaps, is it giving out a message to the youngsters that this is ok and normal behaviour.

after all adam and eve it was not adam and adam.

eve and eve is ok lol

but seariously your thoughts

The best thing you can possibly say is this.

"can a man and a women love each other" They will say yes.

Then you say "can a man and a man love each other" and see what they say.

You obviously then tell them they can and so can a two women.

You have to face that we will be or are living in a pansexual society.

Foxxy Love: "Homosexuality is something you're born with, like like red hair or a dead twin."

Phoebe Buffay: (song) "Sometimes men love women/sometimes men love men/then there are bisexuals/but some just say they're kidding themselves"

Like it or not, it's natural. However, I'm not going to demand acceptance, just respect.

Adam and Eve is a make believe story so no point referring to that.

If anything refer to the fact that the world would end if we all started that kissing boys antics, makes much more sense. There could be no natural selection if there was no procreation.

I'm sorry but I think it is a pretty narrow minded view to say 'it turns your stomach'

I'm straight but have no objection to same gender relationships. If that involves intimacy then so what?

I wonder if I looked at your hard drive or into your dvd collection there would be some porn with girl/girl action... hypocritical or what..

whats the point of resisting it. I appreciate your views but one day the kids will be exposed to it. We live in a time where homosexuality is open and in my opinion should be accepted. No one says it should be forced upon us and seeing it on the telly is not extreme. I think it raises a good debate.

As to say it is not natural then that is just an opinion. No one knows what is natural as homosexuality has been with us since the dawn of time. It is a natural instinct so therefore it is natural.

I would much prefer to be around homosexual people than religious peaople any day so referring to the bible to me is offensive.

I have no problems with homosexuals, what they do in the bedroom is up to them. I certainly wouldnt not be friends with someone because they were gay, it doesnt really matter IMO. However i would not want my kids watching things like that and would probably try to steer them away from it if im honest. However i agree with slamdog for the most part. If im honest though i would try and steer them away from it.

Let's say the boot was on the other foot for a moment and I said that the thought of you and your girlfriend/wife together turned my stomach. How would that make you feel?
I've no problem with your sexuality mate, but for you to say that would be going against the grain. Homosexuality is massively in the minority and clearly not natural as it doesn't allow the world to progress and goes against Darwin's theory of natural selection. If the world was entirely homosexual then there would be no human population.

what is one persons poison is another persons pudding.

if your kids are gonna turn out to be gay (i'm not saying they are) then watching two men kissing on eastenders isn't gonna make them turn into raving homosexuals.

unless of course you subscribe to the view that all the things we see on t.v make us carry them out?

e.g if you see someone hurting someone you will want to go out and do it?

if you have raised your kids to ask questions and respect their own emotions you won't have any problems mate so don't worry.

hell being gay isn't bad. its genetic

You raise an interesting point.

Nature or Nurture? Pov DMcc??

Darwin was a theorist. I accept it does not increase the population but why does that make it un-natural?

If it is someone's basic instinct to be gay then in my opinion it is natural.

I woud have no problems letting my son watch it. He is six and I would simple tell him what has been said previously that men can love women and men. The problem is is whats in the mind of the person trying to protect people from it. Ever thought that shielding someone from it may make them more inquisitive?

I was just giving that as a bit of Devil's Advocacy; but to say that homosexuality is "clearly not natural" does ignore the raft of scientific evidence to say that it is in fact genetic and has also been observed in nature. Let's not forget that 1 in 10 of the UK population identifies as GLBT - that's more than those who identify as Black - and the Kinsey study put the percentage of the general population who had had a "homosexual experience" as much higher.

At the end of the day though, who really gives a toss? The world would be a very, very dull place if we were all the same.

i think its nature but given the right nurturing it will happen :confused1:

i am confusing myself now.

if my son comes home and tells me he is gay i am not gonna say it would be my first choice (as like most hetero dads) i would like him to bring home a stunner for me to drool over.

one thing is certain though is he will get my love and support no matter which way he swings on the "gay-o-meter".

he will still be my son and that IS genetic. just like being gay
