Hey man, I share your views. Frankly, I doubt what I posted will help to boost the image of gays or increase public acceptance. I can only speak up and contribute my point of view, and hopefully through interaction with the straight community, raise the awareness of this taboo subject. ItÂ’s really up to the individuals to change their mindset or to hold on to their beliefs.
Homosexuality has been around for hundreds of years? Thousands of years? Yet full public acceptance never existed. And somehow, I donÂ’t think it ever will. Homosexuality may be getting more and more visible (which regrettably gave some ill-informed people the false impression that more and more people are Â‘turning into homosÂ’), but it doesnÂ’t mean that more and more people are giving homosexuality the nod, much less understanding the issue.
Maybe IÂ’m being pessimistic, but I doubt I will live to see the day when I can hold hands with James while walking down Orchard Road without Mrs Ong making a big fuss over it on the forum page in the Straights Times the next day.
'yah, it's just a phase --- those terrible guilt and struggles in life before finally coming to terms with yourself and admit that you are GAY'
