No it means that sometimes I "am a man" and sometimes I find intercourse unappealing and sometimes even "disgusting".

It's normal to more easily attracted to people at certain times than others...

I don't know. Maybe I just need to get my sex ed on. Seriously I still haven't taken any sort of basic sex ed and I feel knowledge-poor.

In other news in the USA, Wyoming decided not to appeal to the court. So that adds up to 32 U.S. states with legalized same-sex marriage, and 61.4% of USA citizens live in a state where it's legal. Texas, Missouri, Kentucky, Michigan, and Florida are expected to follow perhaps soon, potentially adding up to 38 U.S. states and 81.4% of the population living in legalized SSM states.

what's the counter argument for it not being legal?

Perhaps, i haven't really paid much attention towards SSM, but generally R.B. is the only reason why they resent it.

Serious question, no hate intended.
I don't really understand how someone can be asexual. Is it not basic human nature to want to "mate"? I'm just not fully sure how someone can not be attracted to ANYTHING at all, so hopefully someone can help me out?

Consider children

As for whether it's basic human nature, that seems like arguing you don't understand how people can be asexual, because humans aren't asexual. Unless I'm not seeing yoour point. If there are asexual humans it isn't really basic human nature to want to mate anymore, is it?

Having a population that all wants to mate isn't necessarily an evolutionary advantage to a population. In ants there are many sterile, specialized groups. Asexuality and homosexuality could serve similar roles in evolution in keeping a fraction of a population from getting children and thus able to carry out other tasks in the population and increase the probability that it survives.

The main question here is: Am I non-traditional sexuality?

Take a look at the "What is your sexuality?" topic. Nobody's sexuality is traditional, but if it is sufficiently far right, and above pretty much right at the bottom, nobody would ever notice the difference.

A lesbian couple with 2 children in northern Jutland have received anonymous letters saying "You live in sin", "swines", along with people throwing trash and dog poops into their garden.
The solutions they [a politician and a teacher] speak of is more education about homosexuality in school, hopefully that will be implemented.

Heard about these two; didn't the teacher get fired from the school for that?

"You live in sin"
 

I love how these kinds of Christians think that it's okay to nose into stranger's lives, but not okay to fulfill your love preferences.

If you count killing people as poking holes in their lives it certainly does.

1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
1:31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
- Romans

No wonder this trash has caused so much death and destruction throughout history.

I gather that zirkza turned into a harsh anti-Christian and lord DC became anti-religious from that one post, which imo is very unbelievable unless they've been near those viewpoints for a while.

I'd say both, many religions have things to say about LGBT people and in any case I don't want it to be such a narrow topic that you can't make small posts on side-topics or have small conversations, as long as it has relevance in the context. I generally don't like topics which have their boundary made by deep pits or walls. I'll handle splitting the topic if it gets derailed so don't worry.

LordDC's post doesn't imply anything about when he lost faith in religion

I don't understand why we need a million different sexuality phrases.
Homosexuality, Heterosexuality, Asexual, and Bisexuality are pretty much all encompassing for sexualities.

what about the polysexual, pansexual, demisexual, omnisexual, and a lot of other sexualities. jorster, you may not know, it, but you're a repressed pjisatsexual. that stands for people-jorster-is-sexually-attracted-to-sexual. yes, you are sexually attracted to people you are sexually attracted to.

n-sexual is just notation for sexually attracted to n, and there are unlimited n's

---

now i think the point of lgbt or at least what should be the point, is to stop discrimination. so the only sexualities that are important or worth noting are sexualities discriminated against. depending on how you divide these sexualities up, you can have more or less terms.

the interesting argument which and how many terms should be in lgbt. too few marginalizes minorities, too many and the distinct sexualities get lumped together as one in people minds

---

personally i'm of the opinion that it should all be lumped under one name as a movement, but if you're discussing sexuality, you can use as many formulated terms as you want
