So What Are We Arguing About by SionnaDehr So What Are We Arguing About by SionnaDehr
Of course, I am not simply referring to homosexuality and all that applies to that particular lifestyle. I am also referring to lifestyles lead by strippers, prostitutes (though there are certain unfortunate reasons that put some of those poor people in that position, but I'm not referring to those precisely), Incestuous couples, and people that either sleep around with multiple partners or just sleep with one lover at a time until they get married. There are others but this is all that I can think of at the top of my head.
No, I don't like the way you guys live your lives. No I do not have to accept the way you live your lives. I can tolerate it, sure, but I'm not going to vote for something that is against my moral convictions whether I am religious or not.
With that being said, this does NOT give either side an excuse to treat each other like the scum of the earth. Contrary to popular belief, not every Christian (or Abrahamic based religion) wants homosexuals and other sinners to burn in the fiery pits of hell. What is said about Hitler need not apply here (lol). But that is not the point of Christianity. Christianity is a lifestyle of modesty, in reality, and not a lifestyle that alienates people from the world. Sadly, many people treat it like that. It is also not a lifestyle based solely on blind love as some Christians try to make it. It is a lifestyle of reason, deep philosophical thinkers that merely want to understand the universe that God has created for us to observe. Due to the way many of my constituents act, I can understand how hard this is to accept, but may I link you to at least one church website (with audio and notes on pdf) to show you? [link]
I'm not trying to convert anyone, I just simply want you to understand that not every Sunday church goer listens to "sermons" or "preachers". Some of us love teachers too. :)

Now, I am also very much aware of the fact that there are people in the non-christian (and chrisitian) community who live a lifestyle that I don't agree with. As for Christians, all I can say is that you know what the Lord says about certain things and that, ultimately, it is between you and God. All I can do is encourage you and, maybe even, exhort you lovingly. But, even so, you are brothers and sisters in Christ even if you don't follow His walk completely. So long as you believe and trust that Jesus Christ died for your sins and rose again from the grave three days later and that he is, not just the son of God, but also God himself, I will see you in heaven. Those of you who are not Christians and live the lifestyles that I do not agree with please understand that I do not hate you. I understand that me not thinking or accepting you for who you are seems as a slight against everyone who is like you, but its not. I don't like or agree with everyone listening to pop music. I think communism is moronic. I disagree with a lot of things that people like, but I don't hate the people who think that way.

So, what I'm trying to say is, Christians: stop acting like stark raving lunatics. You have no reason to unless there is some serious hurt going on from the other side (like if gay rights activists go into a Chick-fil-a restaurant and vandalize and insult and hurt the innocent employees *Do not deny that this happened there are too many witnesses*). Respond to them, but don't react. Reacting isn't always the best thing to do. Others: stop acting like the world revolves around you (and I can say this to Christians too, so both sides take a look at both of my addresses) and your lifestyle. If each of you puts aside your differences and talk you might actually be able to civilly discuss your matters without the kicking and screaming.

Thank you and good day.

as a lesbian, i dig this stamp. 

I've got friends IRL who don't...'agree' with the whole gay thing, but we're still friends because they understand I can't change that part of me. I actually really, really like this stamp. It's much less hurtful than other stamps I've seen and if I saw someone with this stamp proudly, I'd nod, thumbs up, and go about my day. As opposed to those HOMOSEXUALITY IS WRONG AND IF YOU DO IT YOU'RE WRONG stamps, which really do suck to see. 

I dig it. c:

You can't "disagree" with a sexual orientation. One, it's none of your goddamn business. Two, it's not an "opinion" like pies vs cookies.


To state you "disagree" with someone's sexual orientation is debating the merit of aspect of their actual existence. It's a violent stance.




The phrase “homosexual lifestyle” gets thrown around a lot by conservatives when jockeying for political power or popularity points. Sadly it seems it gets used even more so by otherwise nice enough people when they want to claim how much they love gay people, they  just “don’t approve of their lifestyle.”

UGH!

Please, God, please – know that when you word vomit this phrase, you are painting with a wide brush that does not depict the picture you think it does. Frankly, honey, you sound ignorant. Ignorant because you are evidently not thinking beyond what you have been taught to parrot. Ignorant because you have bought and are peddling the tired old lie that all queer folk live exactly the same “lifestyle.”

Bless your heart.

I want to help translate what you think you are saying into what you are actually saying.



1. When you say “I don’t approve of your lifestyle” what you really mean is “ICK!  I am so grossed out by what you do with other women – like, gag me with a spoon!” Guess what, I throw up in my mouth a little when I think about all your interlocking, squirty boot knockin’. How about we agree to keep our imaginations out of each other’s bedrooms? What you really mean is that you DO approve of reducing my entire personhood to my preference for dolls, instead of guys. You assent that nothing else about me is part of my “lifestyle” – not the job I do, not the worship I attend, not the food I eat, not the gardening I enjoy, not the children I am raising, and most certainly not the palpable and inescapable love I have for God and my neighbor.  Next time, just be honest and say “I am grossed out by thinking about your sex life.”

 

2. When you say “I don’t approve of your lifestyle” what you really mean is you don’t believe in science. You have decided to ignore all social sciences that inform us that human sexuality is on a spectrum and that some people are in fact built (Created) to be attracted to, fall in love with and desire to make a life with people of the same gender. Next time, just be honest and say “I don’t believe in science.”


3. When you say “I don’t approve of your lifestyle” what you are really saying is you DO approve of forcing me to live either a dark and dangerous lie or to be completely alone, forever. Guess what, just as it is not my place to approve of how and who you love, it is not your place to approve or disapprove with whom I hold hands, kiss, take to my bed or want to share the most intimate dreams and nightmares of my life. Next time, just be honest and say “I don’t approve of you being whole and loved.”

 

4. When you say “I don’t approve of your lifestyle” what you are really saying is that you approve of me being persistently a second class, slightly fearful citizen living on the same street, shopping in the same community, worshipping at the same church and subject to stricter laws than you.What you really mean is that you believe only mixed gender couples have unalienable rights to the protection of life, and liberty and the pursuit of happiness (or more basely stated) to court, love, make love to, marry, work without fear and raise a family without impunity. Guess what, laws of the United States sure as hell shouldn’t be based on individual ick factors or if I had my way – ombré highlights, egregious camel toes, duck lips, reality TV and camouflage clothing would all be punishable by glitter bombing, all the time. Next time, just be honest and say “I don’t approve of equal rights for all.”

 

5. When you say “I don’t approve of your lifestyle” what you are really saying is you don’t trust God to generously create and extravagantly love an amazing array of differently configured children. What you are saying is that God’s love is limited to people like you.  And sweetie, we can call it blasphemy or we can call it heresy, hell I am happy to call it willful ignorance, but in truth it is just plain old, small-minded, narcissistic religiosity that denies the radical grace and is terrified of the incomprehensibility of God. As Anne Lamott said, “You can safely assume that you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.”  Next time, just be honest and say “I don’t believe in your sacred worth.”

 

NO matter what you think you are saying, when you say “I don’t approve of your lifestyle” what you are really saying, is “I don’t approve of you.”



Sorry but it's the truth. If I offended you then sorry. But this is WHAT you really mean when you say this. You can sugar coat it all you want...but it's the truth.

But what about the people of the LGBT+ community who doesn't approve of cis/het people? Don't say that they don't because I've witnessed it. Or the people that just can't support it? Like its not like they PURPOSELY want to not support, but because it would eternally just feels wrong to them? People who are labeled as "Homophobic" for disagreeing with you isn't say they HATE LGBT+ people and wanting them to die, they just aren't into it as you are.

I think there is a difference here. There is: I don't think you should be able to do what other people are allowed to do or be treated the same because of your sexual orientation. Then there is: Look, you can be whatever and I'm not going to discriminate, but its not something i'm going to follow you on. So someone like pineapples on their pizzas and someone else doesn't is automatically wrong? Who is to say what someone is doing is wrong or right. Whether its wrong or right is up to the person and what they see in it. A person seeing one thing to someone could be wrong to them, but could be right to someone else. However, I don't see how not supporting it is hurting anyone "I don't support LGBT" "OHHH NO NOw WE ARE ALL GOING TO BE DISCRINMANTEDEDD" Someone who doesn't support it isn't directly hurting them in anyway. It doesn't mean they aren't going to help you if you're being mistreated, it doesn't mean they wont do art of LGBT+ characters for you, and it sure doesn't mean they are going to go around and leave hate on everything LGBT+ Someone's sexual orientation doesn't make them who they are, its not what makes them so special, its what they do in life and how they treat others.

Sigh you just don't understand.
Homosexuality is part of someone's core identity if you disapprove of that you're denying part of their very identity.  It doesn't matter if you're nice or not. An example that may get you to understand is this:

"I love black people I really do. I just disagree because they're are black. Nothing against black people I just won't support them being black."

Now change black people to homosexual.

"I love homosexual people I really do. I just disagree because they are homosexual. Nothing against homosexuals I just won't support them being homosexual."

See how racist that is and how homophobic as well?

You can't disagree with someone being homosexual. They're homo and that's it. Their sexuality isn't like if God is real or not. You can't disagree because it's a fact people are homo. You can't disagree with a fact.

When you cannot approve or be accepting of homosexuality you’re only adding fuel to the fire of oppression.  You’re turning your back on a group of people who just want to be loved and accepted. Harm is already done when you say you’re not gonna approve or accept part of someone’s core identity.  In this way you harm others because people just want to be loved and accepted and if you deny part of their core identity then you don’t love them at all.



If you don’t love all of their identity then you cannot love them. You are no different than or better than a homophobe in this way. If you aren’t homophobic then you should have no problem accepting and approving and agreeing with someone’s sexuality and supporting that part of their identity, but if you still can’t then you are a homophobe in denial and you need to learn to get around it.

It doesn’t matter if you think homosexuality is right or not.  It matters if you support someone. Like you would support a family member even if they made a mistake.


Good day to you.

You're not really getting what I'm saying. Really, is you want equality so bad then why have a separate community from straight people? Why can't we all be just one big group together without one trying to surpass the other? And actually the word "phobia" means the fear of, so no, I am not scared of LGBT people. Sexuality is not a big deal, people just make it so it is. "I like to date the same gender" Good for you! You're making it like all they ever do and say is LGBT related.  You said 
"I love homosexual people I really do. I just disagree because they are homosexual. Nothing against homosexuals I just won't support them being homosexual." as an example. You're partly correct. Its not them particular being a homosexual, its just the thing itself. How is it wrong not supporting it if nones hurt? For example: "I support Animal Abuse" Someone is hurt, "I support violence against women" Someone is getting hurt "I don't support LGBT" None is getting hurt.  How are you to say what is wrong and what is right for everyone? None has to support it, and society and making us feel as if we HAVE to. Well guess what? I'm a human being too, and yes I'm going to agree and disagree with what you think is wrong/right. I can accept them for being who they are, and yes  I believe that they are born to be what their sexuality is. And what does God have to do with this? Christians aren't the only ones who don't support it. And why even say that they were made a mistake? Its who they are, and none is trying to change that. I can love my friends just fine, without having to bring they're sexaulity into it. Some people don't HAVE to get up and wear rainbows and march and celebrate with them, and guess what? None is getting hurt from that. Are your feelings hurt if we don't? What about people who just don't care about the topic whatsoever? Why can't people just live life and not have to worry about LGBT hating on us, or us hating on them? It shouldn't matter what we believe in.  If you want to label someone as "Homophobic" then do it to someone who is actually HURTING or REALLY discriminating.


Have a wonderful evening <3

Well, to be real, not a lot of Christians know how to express that they don't hate people for being homosexual. Hell, I've disliked what a lot of my friends have done, but they're still my friends. Just because I might hold aversion to what they do (not speaking of homosexuality here, but something else) doesn't mean that I hate them. 

The comments are funny. I stopped replying to a majority of them a long time ago... mostly because I have better things to do than try to convince people who've already made a judgment about me (I'm an independent author here! I have stories to write lol!).

If being gay is wrong, so is being straight :) because people are people and people are meant to be equal and treated as such, please, pull your head out of your ass and do something useful to society, starting with ending uneccisary bigotry and hatred that KILLS thousands of people.

"I can tolerate it, sure, but I'm not going to vote for something that is against my moral convictions whether I am religious or not. " Thats just it though, you get to vote on weather or not I am allowed to marry the man I love. I can not do that to you no matter what my morals and convictions are. You should not be able to use those morals and convictions to control such an aspect(or any aspect) of another persons life.  Not a lifestyle, lifestyle implies pattern of behavior and choice, not every gay person has enough in common to warrant it being called such and it is not a choice no matter how hard some want to believe it is. 

Look, if the world were reversed and people were decrying the "heterosexual life style" would that stop you from being attracted to men? Would it stop you form wanting to be with a man you loved, would it stop you from wanting to marry him? Would you take kindly to other people who don't even know you getting to vote on what you are allowed to do with your life?  All because of morals and convictions you yourself might not even believe in. How could you not equate that to those people must hate you that much that they would deny you aspects of life others around you get to enjoy without a fight or fuss?
Is it really that hard to put yourself in my shoes?

You should not get to decide if I get to marry or adopt or anything else, and really you shouldn't want to. After all I wouldn't do that to you.

As a homosexual person I just have to ask what is a homosexual life style? All of my gay-bi friends have different life styles.
One is a social butterfly that is outgoing with her girlfriend and  has a job as a guard she and her girlfriend are both vegs and Buddhist , while the other is a workaholic who also tends anime conventions with her wife , the other works at home and hardly leaves his apartment and is selling his artwork while living with his boyfriend. Another one has a long distant relationship with his boyfriend and is a art student and addicting to playing video games at the weekend. Another young Cristian woman lives with her parents and does a part time job and sometimes goes on dates and to her local church.

So..if you are going to call homosexuality a life style, you see it as a repeated patern  of people who follow the same set of rules and/or belief.
Orientation doesn't  define a person's life or belief it defines who they choose as a partner. That doesn't make it a life style. 



"See, this is what I have a problem with. How we vote in America should NOT be dictated by our personal moral convictions"

Well see that's kind of homophobia. You are pressing your moral belief on me and evoking my right to marry/work/adopt just because you don't like my relationship.

Which is kind of weird because you don't even know me my partner or what my relationship is like yet you get to have a VOTE on it?

How does being a homosexual have anything to do with such? Homosexuals are all different, you have homosexuals who live as vegetarians  or Religious homosexuals, you have homosexuals  who are workaholics or devout themselves to art ect

Not all homosexuals appeal to one sort of product or the same way. The only thing that homosexuals have in common is the gender they are attracted to but that is far to small to to make it a 'life style'' notice how nobody refers heterosexual to be a life style.

You're taking this the wrong way *clears mah throat*

When religious people talk about the "homosexual lifestyle" they're referring to a lifestyle of living in sin (by their definition of sin). 

But while you may not engage in it, there is actually a homosexual lifestyle that some people live. It would be the minority, but I don't think you can deny that there is a homosexual sub-culture out there that some people throw themselves into.Its how one lives their life. How one modifies there "style" of life. Is vegetarian a life style? just because they dont eat meat? I know many vegetarians that eat egg products, some eat fish, some dont eat any animal products at all.... and many of them cheat, on the occasion to.my point is this: they are just aspects of anyone's life they do not define anyone as a whole, and you can have many lifestyles that you claim to be your own. Same thing goes with the 'Religious lifestyle' or the 'healthy lifestyle'

:iconkell0x:
Kell0x Featured By Owner May 4, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Then by that argument everyone is living that sinful lifestyle, since you cannot deny that people commit sins such as lying gossiping, cheating stealing one way or another.

However the problem is you are thinking of the Christian method of life styles and that isn't universal. What you deem as sinful life style many others deem as a person's sexuality or romantic choices in relationships that is neither nor good or worse then anyone else.

Example I therefore see vegetarians as a life style since they have motives and methods different from the average people. ( personally that I admire.)
 
I don't know any gays in any sort of subculture unless you mean the Art-house types and geeky ones? that's how I know most gays person from but I prefer not to judge.
Personally I am just sick of people thinking just because I am gay it must mean I am in a life style full of parties, sex drugs gay parades drinking and possible Hiv. Because let's be honest that's what some people judge the homosexual life style of and you cannot deny that.

Which is just kinda hilarious cause I never smoked used drugs and only had 2 sips of whine neither am I a big party girl and the parades tend to bore me as I am not a fan of dancing and horrible music.

I found your description very interesting, though I think it's best to change "those people" and "those" to some other wording because readers could misinterpret and think you're grouping people or not counting homosexual people as people, which would be a huge insult/disrespect in my opinion. You don't seem to have intentionally meant it in that way, but just pointing it out as a just in case there are misunderstandings about your wording. I'm not sure if I worderd it right, but I hope you understand with what I'm getting at.
 I do agree with what you said in the last paragraph, how people shouldn't be extreme in expressing their viewpoints about another lifestyle and about putting differences aside and talk it out. Talk with words of peace and sincerity, not violence and words of hate - which is what I got from what you said here. :) (hmm... "Talk with words of peace and sincerity, not violence and words of hate." I should make a stamp out of that! ^_^).
For me personally, I disagree with the lifestyles you mentioned in the beginning, though I'm on the fence with homosexual life style. (I'm not saying that I am homosexual, which I'm not, but there are close friends of mine that are homosexual and idk, I just don't understand the lifestyle but my friends are really nice and I value people in how he or she is like personality wise and such, no matter of what sexual orientation.
 I respect your viewpoints, I'm just wanting to state my opinion as well and I'm not intending to be argumentive in any way (and I apologize if I sound argumentive). :)

You do not sound argumentative and I appreciate your comment! If people were more like you then we'd have less arguments about the subject and actually get something done where everyone's happy versus pissing one group off all the time. Sadly, people get offended even if you do say you support the right but not the lifestyle.

And here in the comment section, you can see a lot of butthurt. Don't get too close! It's contagious.

Why do some people think that disagreement and hatred are the same thing? It's so stupid. It's like saying "because that one person HATES the show I like, means that everyone that just doesn't care for it hates it as well."
There's such a difference, and the people that HATE are the ones giving the ones that just don't ALL OUT SUPPORT what they're doing a bad name.

People are people and should be treated equally, no matter what race, sex, SO etc... It's just terrible to see people treated this way. "Love your neighbor as yourself." "Treat others the way you want to be treated." ... These things are sadly fading, but I love it when people like you come back to light them back up again! :hug:

Calm yourself, missy. This person is just saying that while they don't agree with certain lifestyles, they are not going to hate on them. What you're doing is just flat-out being ignorant and spamming.
