    I didn’t realize that you were bipolar. Immense respect IBK.

      I’ve considered it that I may be bipolar but that hasn’t been confirmed by a trained psychiatrist.
      I watched shameless and I saw how bad being bipolar can be.. Quite crippling. It scared me. I don’t want to be. I’m happy to just think of these things as mood swings ☺

    I had an argument with a female coworker about shows with homosexual characters and content! She was of the opinion that they made people realize the possibility of being gay and therefore not good for kids.

    I laughed and told her that going by her theory, then there won’t be any gay person of our generation because when we were little all the shows were strictly heterosexual and people still turned out to be gay, so it doesn’t make any sense.

    Also if a show makes you realize that you are different and you begin to question your sexuality, I think the show has done you a favor. It didn’t change you, it merely opened your eyes; like a pair of glasses or an enzyme co-factor

      Your ending comment is exactly my sentiment. Ultimately, people will always revert to what sexual identity they are comfortable with. So if a growing child feels the curiosity to explore based on the TV shows he’s seen, it is no different from that other child who entices the neighbourhood girl his age into a corner so they can fiddle with their privates. Curiosity leads to exploration and exploration leads to definition. Those who are gay will be gay and those who are straight will be straight. I say ‘Let the gay-inclusive shows keep going!’

      I think you’re missing out IBK’s argument here. All he’s trying to point out here is kids trying to try out stuffs they see on tv cos they think it’s cool esp when it’s been done by artist(e) they love/adore. And we know no kid wants to be seen as uncool (cos they all want to keep up with the jonses)

      For me, this is a very valid argument and I think that’s where parental guidance comes in. It is paramount parents explain these things to their kids so that they don’t misinterprete the message being passed.

      Your analogy and what IBK pointed are entirely two different concepts. Let us not deviate…

        Actually you deviated because I never said they were the same thing. Reading what he said reminded me of the conversation I had with someone and I decided to mention it.

        I’m with you oga Duke. Being thinking about it all day and parental guidance was the only solution I could come up with.

    ‘Happiness isn’t a destination. They are more like rest/bus stops on the journey of life. Happiness will come. Happiness will go…’

    That is something I have a problem being comfortable with. The knowledge that the pursuit of happiness is this endless race you keep at, simply because you get it and lose it the much you chase after it.

      Then maybe stop chasing and enjoy the ride.. Though that’s easier said than done and in itself has many flaws.

    I agree wholeheartedly with DM and the ones that decide to join as a fad will quickly learn that its not all rosy and outgrow it anyway.
    However, this early exposure means a generation of more tolerant and enlightenment ppl.
    There will always be outliers who will take things too far, even in the heterosexual community.

    I think you already answered your own question. You seem to be more frightened of change than optimistic about the possibilities for the future.

    In any case there is no right reason to be gay. Go forth and sodomize if you want to.

      Why we allow this staunch homophobe with nothing to say but jargons, beats me.

      I don’t understand how you will come on a gay blog and be homophobic. If you are homophobic, please respect our space and leave. If you have “internal homophobia” go and work on yourself please. Thanks.

        Where is the evidence of homophobia? Is disagreeing with a gay man homophobia? You and Delle don’t seem to read, understand or engage with ideas

    I am in awe of the masterpiece that is Steven Universe. It’s an amazingly progressive show with rich lore and a storyline that draws you in, not to mention great characters and the artwork is superb!!!
    I love how the main protagonist Steven is so in touch with his feelings and so sensitive yet his masculinity isn’t called into question. Then the way all kinds of love are represented ; Garnet being the physical embodiment of a lesbian relationship and all, then Stevonnie representing Trans kids in media…
    See ehn, I’m in love with the show ahhhhhhhhh!!!!

    I’d probably be a bit miffed because someone
    identified as gay because they liked the gay culture and are
    not really attracted to the same sex. They might have sex
    with men, but this’d be basically because it’s part of the gay
    culture (I sincerely believe this could happen.)….. So true,he is making a point,I didn’t like sports but watching the heck outta it,I’m naw an athlete (one of the bests),I still don’t like it but its cool and provides d idea dah I’m cool,(not to fit in ooh,I’m out by the way),bt ppl do a lot of things to be cool especially kids,drugs n alcohol nt because they like but ppl dah are influencial do it.

    Kids should be protected from sexual content in movies. Cartoons depicting sex should be a no no!
    Educate me please, is it proven scientifically that people are born gay? Because I feel environmental factors can play a role just like exposure improves intelligence.
