Same-sex through relationship. Throughout history `gays and bisexuals lesbians have been made fun of persecuted or killed .They have been branded as sexual perverts and filthy. People who are against same sex relationships should know that it is the make-up of people in same sex relationship to be what they are.

Same sex relationships should not affect those who think there is only one accepted way of sexual relationships between a male and a female. If these people in same sex relationship do not go out of the way to condemn heterosexuals why should gays and lesbians and bisexuals condemn.

Sex, they say, is hormonal. If ones hormonal impulse directs ones to go for the same sex, who are we to say it should not be that way? It is time the people of the world wake up and realizes that sexual behavior cannot be controlled. Either you are what you are or something else when it comes to sexual behavior.

Those who support and advocate for same sex relationship are considered odd or eccentric and sometimes downright crazy.

Let me state that gay rights activists do what they do in defense of the rights of gay people as long as such sexual practice do not infringe on the rights of others.

People against same-sex relationships think that such relationships are sinful, harmful, immortal and unnatural.

It is the business of same sex couples to worry about that. If we are living in a global village and a free world, we should give those in same-sex relationships the freedom we want for ourselves, as long as such freedom do not affect others.
