Quotations about Homosexuality 2

There's this illusion that homosexuals have sex and heterosexuals fall in love.  That's completely untrue.  Everybody wants to be loved.  ~Boy George

Straight Americans need... an education of the heart and soul.  They must understand - to begin with - how it can feel to spend years denying your own deepest truths, to sit silently through classes, meals, and church services while people you love toss off remarks that brutalize your soul.  ~Bruce Bawer, The Advocate, 28 April 1998

What are you trying to protect heterosexual marriages from?  There isn't a limited amount of love in Iowa.  It isn't a non-renewable resource.  If Amy and Barbara or Mike and Steve love each other, it doesn't mean that John and Mary can't.  ~Ed Fallon

People sometimes think I'm gay because I once played a gay in a movie.  It's funny.  Audiences don't think you're a murderer if you play a murderer, but they do think you're gay if you play a gay.  ~Perry King

It's hard enough to be taken seriously in the struggle for gay rights without having a bunch of straight girls running around kissing each other to get the attention of boys and videocameras.  ~M. Robin D'Antan, 2002

Let my lusts be my ruin, then, since all else is a fake and a mockery.  ~Hart Crane

I get sick of listening to straight people complain about, "Well, hey, we don't have a heterosexual-pride day, why do you need a gay-pride day?"  I remember when I was a kid I'd always ask my mom:  "Why don't we have a Kid's Day?  We have a Mother's Day and a Father's Day, but why don't we have a Kid's Day?"  My mom would always say, "Every day is Kid's Day."  To all those heterosexuals that bitch about gay pride, I say the same thing:  Every day is heterosexual-pride day!  Can't you people enjoy your banquet and not piss on those of us enjoying our crumbs over here in the corner?  ~Rob Nash

Wouldn't it be great if you could only get AIDS from giving money to television preachers?  ~Elayne Boosler

In itself, homosexuality is as limiting as heterosexuality:  the ideal should be to be capable of loving a woman or a man; either, a human being, without feeling fear, restraint, or obligation.  ~Simone de Beauvoir

Trust a nitwit society like this one to think that there are only two categories - fag and straight.  ~Gore Vidal

Bisexuality immediately doubles your chances for a date on Saturday night.  ~Woody Allen

The world is not divided into sheeps and goats.  Not all things are black nor all things white.  It is a fundamental of taxonomy that nature rarely deals with discrete categories.  Only the human mind invents categories and tries to force facts into separated pigeon-holes.  The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects.  The sooner we learn this concerning sexual behavior the sooner we shall reach a sound understanding of the realities of sex.  ~Alfred Kinsey, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, 1948

Labels are for filing.  Labels are for clothing.  Labels are not for people.  ~Martina Navratilova

Labels?  Okay, fine.  I'm bisensual.  Heteroflexible.  And life-curious.  That about covers it.  ~Morgan Torva

The important thing is not the object of love, but the emotion itself.  ~Gore Vidal

Pronouns make it hard to keep our sexual orientation a secret when our co-workers ask us about our weekend.  "I had a great time with... them."  Great!  Now they don't think you're queer - just a big slut!  ~Judy Carter

I can't help looking gay.  I put on a dress and people say, "Who's the dyke in the dress?"  ~Karen Ripley

The geography of my heart has hills of desire and valleys and meadows of love - for both men and women - a single day's trek passes through it all.  ~Agavé Powers

My cousin is an agoraphobic homosexual, which makes it kind of hard for him to come out of the closet.  ~Bill Kelly

As long as society is anti-gay, then it will seem like being gay is anti-social.  ~Joseph Francis

My mom blames California for me being a lesbian.  "Everything was fine until you moved out there."  "That's right, Mom, we have mandatory lesbianism in West Hollywood.  The Gay Patrol busted me, and I was given seven business days to add a significant amount of flannel to my wardrobe.  ~Coley Sohn

We love men.  We just don't want to see them naked.  ~Two Nice Girls

The next time someone asks you, "Hey, howdja get to be a homosexual anyway?" tell them, "Homosexuals are chosen first on talent, then interview... then the swimsuit and evening gown competition pretty much gets rid of the rest of them."  ~Karen Williams

If Michelangelo had been straight, the Sistine Chapel would have been wallpapered.  ~Robin Tyler

If you removed all of the homosexuals and homosexual influence from what is generally regarded as American culture, you would pretty much be left with "Let's Make a Deal."  ~Fran Lebowitz

Girls who put out are tramps.  Girls who don't are ladies.  This is, however, a rather archaic usage of the word.  Should one of you boys happen upon a girl who doesn't put out, do not jump to the conclusion that you have found a lady.  What you have probably found is a Lesbian.  ~Fran Lebowitz

About a year ago I was a guest on a network news show in New York.  They were showing film clips from a gay pride parade down Fifth Avenue, but they only decided to show the part with men in dresses and heels.  I had seen the parade, and there were men in business suits as well.  After showing the film, the newsperson made some comments, and I found the comments extremely offensive.  "This is what's wrong with the media," I said.  "You show a fringe position.  You show one point of view.  You're closing the minds of the people by not showing them what the reality is."  I got up and walked out, and I've never been asked back again.  ~Kathleen Nolan

My urges to write poetry are lesbian, but whatever compels me to prose is straight.  ~Agavé Powers

If adjustment is necessary, it should be made primarily with regard to the position the homosexual occupies in present-day society, and society should more often be treated than the homosexual.  ~Harry Benjamin

Lesbianism has always seemed to me an extremely inventive response to a shortage of men, but otherwise not worth the trouble.  ~Nora Ephron, Heartburn, 1983

If horse racing is the sport of kings, then drag racing must be the sport of queens.  ~Bert R. Sugar

In an expanding universe, time is on the side of the outcast.  Those who once inhabited the suburbs of human contempt find that without changing their address they eventually live in the metropolis.  ~Quentin Crisp, The Naked Civil Servant, 1978

The diagnosis of homosexuality as a "disorder" is a contributing factor to the pathology of those homosexuals who do become mentally ill.... Nothing is more likely to make you sick than being constantly told that you are sick.  ~Ronald Gold

Homosexuality is a sickness, just as are baby-rape or wanting to become head of General Motors.  ~Eldridge Cleaver, "Notes on a Native Son," Soul on Ice, 1968

The Reagan Administration has fostered a climate in which a barest majority of the Supreme Court caters to the passions and hatreds of the American mob, stripping away the constitutional shield outside our bedrooms.... How tragically ironic that an Administration that promised to get Government "off our backs" is now so active in draping Government gumshoes over every part of our anatomies.  ~Carl T. Rowan

      An engineering professor is treating her husband, a loan officer, to dinner for finally giving in to her pleas to shave off the scraggly beard he grew on vacation.  His favorite restaurant is a casual place where they both feel comfortable in slacks and cotton/polyester-blend golf shirts.  But, as always, she wears the gold and pearl pendant he gave her the day her divorce decree was final.  They're laughing over their menus because they know he always ends up diving into a giant plate of ribs but she won't be talked into anything more fattening than shrimp.
      Quiz:  How many biblical prohibitions are they violating?  Well, wives are supposed to be 'submissive' to their husbands (I Peter 3:1).  And all women are forbidden to teach men (I Timothy 2:12), wear gold or pearls (I Timothy 2:9) or dress in clothing that 'pertains to a man' (Deuteronomy 22:5).  Shellfish and pork are definitely out (Leviticus 11:7, 10) as are usury (Deuteronomy 23:19), shaving (Leviticus 19:27) and clothes of more than one fabric (Leviticus 19:19).  And since the Bible rarely recognizes divorce, they're committing adultery, which carries the rather harsh penalty of death by stoning (Deuteronomy 22:22).
      So why are they having such a good time?  Probably because they wouldn't think of worrying about rules that seem absurd, anachronistic or - at best - unrealistic.  Yet this same modern-day couple could easily be among the millions of Americans who never hesitate to lean on the Bible to justify their own anti-gay attitudes.  ~Deb Price, And Say Hi To Joyce

The Lord is my Shepherd and he knows I'm gay.  ~Troy Perry

I like my beer cold, my TV loud, and my homosexuals flaming.  ~Matt Groening, The Simpsons (Homer)

While many minority groups are the target for prejudice... and discrimination... in our society, few persons face this hostility without the support and acceptance of their family as do many gay, lesbian, and bisexual youth.  ~Virginia Uribe and Karen Harbeck

Mothers, tell your children: be quick, you must be strong.  Life is full of wonder, love is never wrong.  Remember how they taught you, how much of it was fear.  Refuse to hand it down - the legacy stops here.  ~Melissa Etheridge, "Silent Legacy," Yes I Am, 1993

Bisexuality is a blessing and a curse, but viewing it as a schizophrenia will make you insane.... I am not a whole person with split desires: I am a whole person with desire.  As everyone is, regardless.  ~Agavé Powers

There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.  ~Anaïs Nin

God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.  ~William Shakespeare

Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another.  ~Homer

There is just one life for each of us:  our own.  ~Euripides

Never apologize for showing feeling.  When you do so, you apologize for the truth.  ~Benjamin Disraeli

If God had wanted me otherwise, He would have created me otherwise.  ~Johann von Goethe

Do not follow where the path may lead.  Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe.  If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened.  But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.  ~Friedrich Nietzsche

My theory is that the hardest work anyone does in life is to appear normal.  ~From the movie Ed TV

The plague of mankind is the fear and rejection of diversity:  monotheism, monarchy, monogamy and, in our age, monomedicine.  The belief that there is only one right way to live, only one right way to regulate religious, political, sexual, medical affairs is the root cause of the greatest threat to man:  members of his own species, bent on ensuring his salvation, security, and sanity.  ~Thomas Szasz
