2. When and how did you first decide you were a heterosexual?
3. Is it possible your heterosexuality stems from a neurotic fear of people of the same
4. If you've never slept with a person of the same sex, how do you know you wouldn't
5. Isn't it possible your heterosexuality is just a phase you may grow out of?
6. Isn't it possible that all you need is a good gay lover?
7. If heterosexuality is normal, why are a disproportionate number of mental patients
8. To whom have you disclosed your heterosexual tendencies? How did they react?
9. Why do heterosexuals place so much emphasis on sex? Why are they so
10. Do heterosexuals hate and/or distrust others of their own sex? Is that what makes
11. If you were to have children, would you want them to be heterosexual knowing the
problems they'd face?
12. Your heterosexuality doesn't offend me as long as you don't try to force it on me.
Why do you feel compelled to seduce others into your sexual orientation?
13. The great majority of child molesters are heterosexuals. Do you really consider it
safe to expose your children to heterosexual teachers?
14. Why do you insist on being so obvious, and making a public spectacle of your
heterosexuality? Can't you just be who you are and keep it quiet?
15. How can you ever hope to become a whole person if you limit yourself to a
compulsive, exclusively heterosexual lifestyle, and remain unwilling to explore and
develop your homosexual potential?

I'm not going to rant about anything said in this, but it just amuses me. I've done enough thinking on my own about this subject, I don't really feel the need to discuss this with other people. Though, if you want to discuss it with me, go ahead. I just don't feel a burning need to talk about this. Can you believe it's been 2.5 years? Well. You probably can. And about 2 years since I came out of the closet. It's nice to be more secure about things than at first. Heh.
Let's see, what else did I do? I...watched a movie! 2, in fact. The pianist. Lovely, just lovely. Sad. Didn't make me cry, though. Women. Exaggerating. And the second was Alexander. Well, I'm just a fangirl for history movies. Or history anything, for that matter. In any case, I liked it. Don't know what else to say about it. And now, Imperium Nero! Ta!
