I don't see what the big deal is and why it's not accepted... There are a lot worse things in the world I'd be worried about.

My Dad has the most loving relationship and happy relationship with his partner moreso than a lot of heterosexual couples. I also have a great relationship with my dad and so do my brothers.

I like to think we are the real 'modern' family. Dad is gay, my brother is gay (and in a happy relationship too), I'm married to a Maori man, one brother is married to a gorgeous Thai woman, and my other brother's partner is American.

The common theme in our family is tolerance and acceptance but you know what more than anything.... LOVE!! I think we have a gorgeous happy family. I'm glad my mum and my dad brought us up this way.

And welcome heydj - I don't think I said it earlier.:)

hello and welcome heydj!

I honestly don't care if your gay or straight or pink with polka dots (wouldnt that be a sight?), welcome to Lottos, I can see both sides of the argument I can understand why some don't like that you've asked the question- it really doesnt have much to do with comping, but neither does Father issues or SAHM, but you should feel free to ask any question you like, no other member is barred from doing so.. I think we (as a majority) are quite understanding and easy to get along with, unfortunatly there will always be a minority that thinks they are better than someone else which is just not me - I am baffeled how someone can tell another human being their way of living is wrong (well if you have canabalistic tendancies I might) but sexual tendancies certainly not...

Anyway I hope you enjoy Lottos, and my message for the day "Live and let live":):):)

I've been reading this thread since the very first post. I deliberately refrained from comment becasue I knew it would blow out to this.

michae1 had already put an end to his view so I didn't want to throw fuel on the fire. Its obvious to the rest of us his view is not typical and although there are some who feel that way, most choose to keep it to themselves. And they should, its no-ones right to insult and offend another. We are all different. No one should be judged on their gender, sexuality, religion, race, political prefrence. And being gay is not really so different. We all know and love people who are gay/lesbian.

I couldn't begin to imagine how hard it would be for someone to realise, admit and accept they are gay. We have been through it with a much loved family friend who was almost my BIL. I also suspect a couple of close family members are but haven't come out yet. And when/if they do no one will change their feelings or opinons of them. My view is none of us have a right to judge if we are not in that position ourselves. We dont understand what they are going through. It is ignorace for anyone to think people are gay/lesbian by choice. many struggle with accepting it themselves. I , for one, wont pass judgement and am proud of those who have the courage to 'come out' and be true to themselves and who they are. It must be extremely tough. Thank god views have changed and we are no longer in the dark ages.

heydj has as much right to ask for friends who have simular life situations as anyoone else. Mothers ask for advice from other mums, Single parents seak other single parents, Aspergers parents support each other....whats the difference. We all appriciate the support of others who understand our situation.
This forum is often an outlet for those who cant share their issues with close family and friends.

I hope the positive opinons have outweighed the negative for anyone who was upset by this thread.

My advice is to just accept everyone's opinions and to agree to disagree. I stopped giving an opinion on some things a long time ago as it isn't worth the backlash. Everyone is different and unique in their own way and some things in life will never change as their will always be prejudices against so many things for ever and a day.
That's life I'm afraid.

One way or the other, opinions are like buttholes everyone has one. Whether one likes it or not is irrelevant. I certainly dont take kindly to being told what I beleive is wrong as does anyone. My sister knows how I feel as always has, doesnt change the fact that shes my sister, we have different beliefs. Everyone agreeing with everyone will never happen until then , im going to take some good advice i wish i'd taken 20 minutes ago... Stay out of heated forum discussions

I dont consider it a "choice" to be gay. I didnt "choose" to be straight, its just the path that felt natural to me, same as it feels natural to be gay to some people.

Hi heydj81 let me welcome you and all other newbies - whether you be straight, gay, not sure or animal lovers, in a platonic way (as Catbat said so many pages ago) compers.

Now to a more serious question - What the hell is an olive tray lover? am I missing something?? I think so!!

Bingo! :D

maybe its someone who partial to a Greek or two!! Thats where the good olives grow after all!!

I am perplexed and I am definitely not sheltered I teach inner city high school and have heard words that would truly make your hair curl - the other day lovely little grade 8 girls who spend their weekends drunk, sniffing stuff or having sex or maybe all three were having a good old snigger about waffles - never did work that one out either and really couldnt be bothered - it just depresses me too much after all they are 12 years old!!

Let's just put it this way.... the olive trays make BIG OLIVES to satisfy the hunger at night for those who like olives PMSL

Welcome heydj81 :)

I am straight but don't think I'm prejudiced about people's sexuality, race, religion, etc. But of course we all have our little things that get our backs up. It's a shame that so many people harp on about freedom of speech without contemplating their responsibility for the consequences!
Words can hurt, people.

Welcome heydj81 and good luck with comping. Everyone is lovely around here.
I like you already because everyone has come out to play, haven't seen a thread like this in awhile. I'm straight and proud of it and my gay friends are proud of what they are too. And we are all happy when some loving is happening.;)

Hi heydj81 welcome to Lottos-what an entrance lol! Goodluck with the comping and the friendships you'll find here.
I'm a pretty boring gal met my first boyfriend at 18 still with him twenty years later but who knows what the future may hold, I have an open mind ;)

Willow... Google Blue Waffle and you'll find out what they were giggling about. Don't do it during dinner or with children about though.

A Big Welcome to you heydj81 and may you have some big wins coming your way.

I guess deep down everyone has their own ideas about certain issues.

I personally love to meet people from all walks of life and we are all so different and thats what makes life interesting.

The one thing we all have in common is we want to WIN competitions on this site and we wish each other well and get very excited when someone WINS BIG no matter who it is.
