Is being gay really bad?

I wish people could accept others for what they are , not for what they aren't. Stop Bullying, words hurt! We all have flaws in the end, so think before you speak, maybe you can save a life!
I don't think so People are never going to accept us or understand us . . . as I didn't find single one around me. What do you think??

Unfortunately, some people are very ignorant and scared of what's different from them, I accept you, and hopefully, things will get better us over time.

Zeus, being gay may be one of the best things ever!

You really should try to find a supportive community. You may have to move to more cosmopolitan centre. I grew up in a small conservative city in the middle of the prairies of Canada and had to move to Toronto or London UK before I felt accepted or “normal”.

As I got older I realized that gay people have played a very important role in human development. When you look deeper into distant and recent history you can see that gay people have shaped our world through art, science, design, architecture, music, writing, philosophy, leadership,etc. Although sexualities are not always proclaimed, our role as a creative force in human civilization can not be denied. We have a different perspective than those who are driven more by tradition and procreation. Although the mainstream may take time to accept and understand us, we have changed the world for the better and continue to make the world a better place.

So take heart and pride in who you are and what you have to offer the world. Be careful reading the internet as people primarily report bad experiences. Yet millions are having very positive experiences every day. Do not let others get you down and find like-minded people to support your beliefs, goals and dreams. We are the dreamers that make the world worth living.
