3 Reasons Why I Approve Of Same Sex Relationships

Well, it really looks like Manny Pacquiao is adamant about running for senator in the coming elections and there’s little anyone can do about it. As a matter of fact, considering the kind of mindset majority of Filipinos have, it won’t be all that surprising if he actually wins and uses his seat in the senate as a sleeping bag. Anyway, we all know the man’s sentiments when it comes to the LGBT community. According to him, people like him and their “god”, people who find love in the arms of people of the same sex are worse than animals. Take note however that this “god” is the same entity that is convincing Manny Pacquiao to run for senate so he can spend more time sleeping when not in a boxing or basketball match.

Anyway, LGBT relationships in the Philippines is a delicate topic and a very polarizing one at that. More likely than not, one person will side with its approval while the other will openly condemn it and consider is a blasphemy to God. Manny Pacquiao and those who agree with him (like Mar Roxas, for instance) sit on the latter for the simple reason that their “god” said so without considering the context of said words in the Bible.

Also note how our society just loves to stereotype homosexuals and perceive gays as flamboyant drag queens and lesbians as gruff ladettes who like to do manly things. The idea of a manly gay or a feminine lesbian almost never occurs in the mind of the homophobic Pinoy. Bisexuals are also rather disdained by many and aren’t clearly understood and are all too often assumed to be gay or lesbian. What’s worse is the idiotic myth that drowning or beating gays will turn them into real men or raping a lesbian will make her a woman that continue to circulate in our moronic society.

However, I for one wish to tolerate the LGBT community and their relationships and here’s why:

LGBT People Deserve To Love And Be Loved Too

I’m sure that the homophobics of the Philippines will once again resort to using the Bible to justify their hatred. More likely than not, they’re probably going to cite the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah as signs of God’s displeasure towards homosexuals and homosexuality. They’re also likely to use words from the Book of Deuteronomy as reasons for their rabid ignorance towards the LGBT community.

Well, now that I think about it, God probably wasn’t even talking about homosexuality at all. I think that He was actually referring to promiscuity and depravity which are problems that are just as bad today as they were back then. If anything, God was probably referring to the way people back then tried to rape everyone they could get their hands on, regardless whether they were male of female just so they could have a good time. And mind you, rape is also every bit a problem today as it was back then, especially in our country where it’s even believed by a backward few that raping a lesbian will reverse her gender preferences.

A sincere homosexual relationship is different from just wanton promiscuity and perversion. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because, if one reads the Bible carefully, it was because everyone in town wanted to rape the “foreigners” that came to visit Lot’s house. Oh and “to know” was a euphemism in the Bible for sex, in case you guys didn’t know. God also spoke against homosexuality, or more precisely anal sex, because at the time, people could get all kinds of diseases from it in the same way that God spoke against eating pork as there was no way that early Jews could prepare pork safely for consumption. Today is different from back then as we now have “safe sex” practices that can prevent the spread of STDs just as we now have a means to prepare pork and kill all the pathogens it carries so as to be safe to eat.

I think that God would honor a dedicated homosexual relationship over a dishonest marriage between straight people. There is a clear distinction between “sexuality” and “depravity” ladies and gentlemen and I hope most of you reading this know that. Unfortunately, given the kind of society we have that still seems to be stuck in the Stone Age, is it really any surprise that we all too often misplace one with the other?

Homosexuals Are A Failsafe Against Overpopulation

Contrary to what Manny Pacquiao might have said, homosexual does in fact occur in animals. There are a lot of theories surrounding it and why it occurs but one of the major theories about it is that it prevents overpopulation. Indeed when there are too many animals in a given environment, they may overfeed and kill off their fellows through starvation.

Homosexual animal couples occur, according to some scientists, so that Nature (or, if you really want to talk about it that way, God) can put a cap on the populations of some animals. This is often noted in many social animals (animals that travel in groups) such as wolves, bats and birds. Also, there are many animals like frogs and some fish who change their gender according to either the conditions of their surroundings or their innate biological clocks. These are just a few examples I can note compared to tons of other research done by scientists, but what can we expect from a legislator who spends most of his working hours sleeping?

Anyway, as some of you may note, the occurrence of homosexuals in our country is on the rise. Some say that this may be a sign of the times or something. If you ask me though, it is indeed a sign of the times as God is telling us to stop breeding irresponsibly. While a big population can be helpful to a country, if its constituents are unproductive and even destructive in the long run, then it’s all for naught.

LGBT People Can Be Good Parents

Another finding that researchers have discovered is that homosexual animal couples in social animals help take care of orphans in their community. For instance a gay wolf couple can take care of a pup whose parents have died and teach it the right tactics of hunting in a pack. Another example would be a lesbian bat couple who can teach baby bats who have lost their parents to fly as, contrary to what many of you may think, flying for flying animals is neither effortless nor simple and may require considerable training before it can be mastered.

The thing is, there may be a lot of straight couples in the Philippines with lots of children but I’ve seen my share of straight couples who can’t even raise their children correctly. In the end, they breed like rats and have absolutely no idea of how to raise their children and, in a lot of cases even, lack the resources to give them any hope of a good future. I’m a straight guy myself but I’ve just seen too many straight couples in the country who lack any real love or respect for their children and treat them more like pets than human beings. I’m sure some of you here even remember a young woman who put a collar and leash on her baby and treated the poor girl like a dog.

Okay, before I continue, let’s go back to the Bible ladies and gentlemen. After all, I’m pretty sure that the detractors of this article will be using it a lot. I’m sure you know about the story of King Solomon and I’m sure the vast majority of those who have read the Bible know the story when there were these two women fighting over a baby. For those not in the know, this is what happened:

Solomon ordered that the baby be cut in half so that each woman would have at least half of the baby. One woman didn’t mind but the other begged the king to give the baby to the other woman just so that the baby would live. King Solomon then declared that the woman who begged for the baby’s life was the real mother as she was willing to sacrifice her own happiness so that her child may live.

Now I know I’m just taking the words out of context myself, not unlike the many Bible Bashers out there who are likely doing the same thing. However, I’d like to point out the possibility that the woman who begged for the baby’s life might not have been the baby’s biological mother at all. However, even is she wasn’t the one who actually gave birth to the baby, it was clear that she loved the baby enough to let someone else have it just so the baby may live. So even if she wasn’t biological mother, she was the baby’s true mother in spirit.

I’m going to say the same thing about homosexual couples and that, I’d rather give a child to a gay or lesbian couple who can give the child genuine respect, love and support than a straight couple who see them less as their own children and more like expensive pets…

If people have issues with Manny P quoting the Bible and saying that same-sex marriage is wrong, then take it up with God, not the messenger. Manny was only quoting St. Paul.
The problem lies with this modern and silly way of thinking that if one opposes someone or something then he automatically is a hater. Manny was just calling a spade a spade. Same sex marriage is wrong, according to St. Paul, who was just echoing God’s voice.

I am a bit lost here.

So, if I say “thou shall not kill”, is that then my opinion (meaning: I will never kill anybody myself and all those who do will be jailed) or am I just rephrasing a text from the bible but does not necesarily reflect my own opinion?

“Three (3) reasons why I approve of same sex relationships”

Does the word relationships include/imply marriage too? Or is that one step too much?

jpau5148

I have the same question too.

I have two close girl friends who are into this kind of relationship (one of them is Lesbian), I said I’m cool with their relationship and still accept them as my friends, but I still informed them what it means when they “step over the line” and rest is up to them. I informed them, my job is done.

Robert Haighton

@Jpau,
I cant creep in Grimwald’s mind. I think he used the word “relationships” deliberately.

What do you mean by “stepping over the line”?

A marriage is a relationship but a relationship is not neccessarily a marriage.

I meant doing things done by married couples.

Robert Haighton

@jpau5148,

Gays will have sex with each other and lesbians will have sex with each other. They also have libido. They are not different from you and me. The only difference is that in their case it will never lead to a pregnancy. So what?
And what lesbians and gays will do sexually, I can also do as heterosexual with my heterosexual partner (oral and anal sex).

“I meant doing things done by married couples.”

As not married couple, I can do everything they do. Even procreate and start a family (legally and legitimate).

Manny Pacquiao’s strong stand against SSM indeed ruffled feathers. There is clearly nothing wrong with what Manny believes; he was simply stating his opposition against SSM. He is a man of religion and his conscience dictates to follow God’s will. He had his share of wrongs, like all of us, but to put Manny to shame when he is just echoing something of God’s, whoa, let’s put things in perspective. You got to give it to him for speaking the truth.

That’s the only good point that Pacquiao has, which is buried by the huge amount of negativity produced by his statement.

KooBG,

Failipinos’ superstitious belief in God (or Allah) has done “Jack Shit” about changing their destructive ways towards their country and each other. The country is still “fucked up” in every sense of the word, and Manny Pacquiao–and his worldly and Godly hypocrisies–is a good example of it.

Religion has done a lot of harm in the Philippines. They really need to stop following so blindly and start educating themselves. If they have access to facebook (which I think a lot of them do nowadays), then they have access to informative and educational material. They can and they should educate themselves and stop living in a bubble of a third world country.

Homosexuality has been around a lot longer than the Bible, and Manny Pacquiao, and the Failipinos’ hypocrisy about their religion. The Failipino people need to stop listening to what this illiterate ‘wannabe-everything-besides-a boxer’ (an actor, a singer, a politician, a military officer, a businessman…and now…a preacher) has to say, and start paying closer attention of how to curtail our aristocratic and self-serving way of life that is destroying our country.

jpau5148, I am not going to waste my time researching the internet to look for a “he says, she says” on the subject to satisfy your curiousity so you can lambast the evidence. Why don’t you do that yourself? All I know is there are scientific evidence out that proves all mammals–especially humans–have both hetersexual and homosexual tendencies. This is why we have have “straight shooter” relationships, as well shooters whose bullets curves before hitting their target. These evidence makes more sense than the individualized versions of the twisted fantasies we entertain–in order to give our lives meaning–from the Bible.… Read more »

Homosexuals are people. They are not animals. Sexual orientation is the subject, I cannot still understand…it may be in the: genes; genome; brain; chemicals in the body; neurotransmitters; the way a child is brought up; way of life; etc…

If your God says:”it is evil”…then, it is your belief…

Most religions condemn homosexuality. It is an “aberration of nature”. However, I do not mean that homosexuals are freaks.

Let us love all kinds of people; including the unlovable…we are in this Planet Earth, not to put down anyone, because, he/she does not fit our human standards.

788Toro007Hyden99999.99, It took me a while, too, to come to terms with other people’s homosexuality; and, you’re right. Homosexuals are human, too, with the same sexual needs as everybody. It just so happens that these people seek those needs with the same sex and not the opposite. We can spend our whole lives figthing against homosexuality and it won’t stop; or, we could come to terms with it and learn to accept it as a part of life that has no clear explanation. As long as homosexual abide by the same moral and ethical rules of the majority of humanity,… Read more »

SSM is a hot button issue, no doubt. What I don’t understand is why a four-percent segment of the worldwide population wants now to dictate things on the 96%. Well, I think we do understand. Discrimination, abuse, maltreatment, and in many cases through out history, violence, have been their lot. Their demand for acceptance and equality is therefore expected. In that, I support the movement as WE SHOULD. The same way that we should NOT discriminate against anyone whether they be black, white, brown, yellow, or what have you. However, it appears now it is not just equality they want.… Read more »

those things said are all political campaigns to get them for a seat in the senate. just like what the LP’s and its allies doing to Grace Poe. ‘if you can’t beat your enemy, join them’ so the people won’t vote for Grace.

why not take a DNA test of the King FPJ, Susan Roces, and Grace Poe? anyway, Grace Poe is a natural born pilipino, born on Philippine soil and she resides more than 10 years since birth preceding such elections in the Philippines before she went to the states to continue her studies.

A civil society can legalize anything all they want if they see it to be beneficial to it’s progress. There is a separation of church and state. But if Pinoys want to involve church doctrine in State policies, we will need to stick to the church constitution which says: Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

Yup – PH society mixes anything and everything together and calls it “more fun”

Laws usually give more weight to progress and than human rights. For example, a law forbidding urination on a certain wall violates people’s right to relieve themselves on the spot.

We do have a rule stating that one will get fined when urinating in public spaces. But to execute such a rule/law, a country needs “blue” (a cop) on every corner of the street. But before this rule/law we already had legal same sex marriage rights. Back to what most commenters say: To procreate is an individual right but as long as we go on procreating blindly (regardless of being a religious person or not), small countries like mine get literally overcrowded. Hence, its not practical. Besides that, most people (being married or not married) in my country will procreate… Read more »

I’ll just paste here what I put in the FB group: I think yes, based on biology, heterosexuality is considered normal and homosexuality not normal. But should we limit our ideas of acceptable behavior based on what is “normal?” Sometimes, normal is not always right, and what’s right is not always normal. I would rather let the LGBTs have their thing. One of the things fueling anti-gay sentiments is scare tactics, such as implying that all gays are sexual predators and are out to take your children.

I hear a lot of people say that homosexual relationships are the same as heterosexual ones. No, they’re really not and for many of the reasons stated above. There are also fundamental physiological reasons behind why homosexuals have exponentially more sexual partners in life than heterosexuals on average, and any fidelity that exists between homosexual couples are actually a very small minority. Marriage is a heterosexual innovation and a social order meant for the continual perpetuation of society, with the passing of names down to future generations so they can trace their lineage and bloodline from both parental ancestries.
