“I thank you again for sharing.
So gay love goes beyond Christian tradition of love. It is more than sex drive and human survival that Freud recognized to be basic to human instincts.

Feeling is sub-conscience and therefore beyond written description.

As an outsider, I can only share with you my experience as a chronic depressive person for most of my adult life until I finally came across an anti-depressant drug that is effective. I was on and off the medication three times, just to see if I really need it over period of several years. I observed my feeling as it transitioned before and after the medication kick in. It basically change my feeling with scientific accuracy from suicidal negative to energetic positive. I now continuously taking maintenance dose to insure BETTER qualify of life without interruption.
Someday, a drug to alter the sexual orientation of a person might be invented to confront the gay community. However, a gay individual SHOULD has a FREE choice to retain his gay feeling or otherwise - it should be up to him/her to define what is better INDIVIDUAL quality of life.

As far I am concern, gay marriage is acceptable as long as the gay couple is willing to accept the marriage responsible as accepted by the society for heterosexual couple.

Please response to my statements if you care to enlighten me with more understanding on gay relationship. It is vital for us to communicate non-judgmentally.”

I know I am a little strange as I honestly feel that the reason why Christ is like a shepherd is because he could sell or consume the sheep for his own gain.

“Holly, I hope you are sincere about your desire to understand same-sex relationships better. Since no one else has offered, a good book (several years old) is "Is It a Choice? Answers to the Most Frequently Asked Questions About Gay & Lesbian People," by Eric Marcus.”

“Thank you for sharing. FFed.
True gay love involves a very conscious choice to a same sex partner, even with a prior satisfactory relationship with an opposite partner.
It may even be a purer love as our biology is not structured to give more enjoyment out of "same sex" sexual intercourse activities. I would appreciate very much if you could comment on the subject matter.”

RainbowTeacher on Jun 3, 2014 at 08:20:39

“It goes so far beyond sex and into our minds themselves. The harmony, the awareness of each other. At times it feels almost mystical - and i am a very grounded science person. My marriage to a man was an existence and I fear that is what most people have without knowing what they are actually missing. Thus the cravings for romantic books, movies, etc. craving something they have never felt. I have felt it. It is a wonder. And, for me, that feeling can only be had with a woman, not a man. I don't hate men but I am not attracted to them nor desire them. They make great friends, though- when the sexual baggage can be put aside by them and their wives!”

“I may be too analytical to understand love as you understand it, especially the kind of romantic love that is out of the traditional setting. Communication and understanding is key to acceptance. Please disclose more or a book , link that describe the gay kind of love.”

“If you mean sex, many heterosexuals practice the same things as gays.

If you mean sexual attraction, just think of your own attraction to the opposite sex and you'll know how gays feel who are attracted to each other.

If you mean the spiritual kind of love, even straights have that kind of love for those of the same sex.

I honestly don't understand why it's a big mystery to you.”

“I can tell you that the love I feel for my partner is so intense, so intimate, so amazing, that I was stunned when it happened. I was married to a man for 25 years and loved him very much - but it wasn't real, deep, shake you to your toes love like I have for my Lady. Had I known what the difference would be, I would have never married a man. I can only hope that str8 people have the kind of love I have now felt.”

“It's just love, dear. No other explaintion is necessary. No book can break it down any more than it can for heterosexual coupes. That being said.... I know the same sex relationships difficult for some. But, At least your heart wasn't full of contempt. You sound innocent enough ... As if you want to understand. I'll give you that. I wish you well !!!”

“I am no gay and don't understand gay behavior. However, with that level of commitment and duration they are a better couple than a lot of traditional marriage couple. I hope they have at least a dog as their child.”

“You don't understand love between two people? That is sad for you. How do you know they didn't raise children? My partner and I have 5 sons. Most gay couples do have children- either through birth or adoption.”

“Human is known to have 20% of Neanderthal DNA. It implies Human and Neanderthal had reproduced. If it were not the fact that Neanderthal is extincted. We might be yelling "human rights" to gather with a Neanderthal”

Skeptic888 on May 30, 2014 at 17:04:36

“OK, so up to 20% of Neanderthal DNA exists within the human genome. Since it's apparently not evenly distributed, are we now going to check each person's DNA to see just how much homo sapiens sapiens they are, and depending on the % of Neanderthal, or other DNA remnants, determine that we're not all created equally? And then what do you propose to do with that information? Because it seems, if we refer back to the original issue, you seem to be taking issue with all of us being equal, whether that's self-evident or not.”
