Difference Between Homosexual and Gay

Contribute to this Article (Add your View/Comment):


I identify as homosexual and not as gay. The term "gay" has subcultural connotations that go beyond sexual orientation and that are not broadly shared among homosexual people such as personal preferences like diva-pop music, interest in fashion, etc. "Homosexual" doesn't imply a subcultural identity and only refers to sexual orientation, that is, my sexual, emotional and romantic attraction to the same sex. No other arbitrary and personal characteristics attached as you find in the term "gay". I don't have a problem with people who identify as gay, I just don't feel identified by that word, it was always alien to me and I think I have the right to identify with the word that best suits me and speaks about my sexual orientation without having to trade my individuality.

Hey Bill, you've made it to the number one homophobic commenter on this thread. I'm seriously wondering how many homoerotic fantasies you must be having if you go to that much trouble to distance yourself from the gay world.

I love listening to the jerks on here. Your religious OPINION does not make it a FACT.

This jumble of words about homosexual or gay as the same is a myth. The difference is this gay like each other, a high percentage are bi-sexual, have numerous partners, generally, not committed to any long term arrangement with another.
The homosexual, is judged by never having sex with a woman, is totally attracted to one man, does not really believe in what is termed "gay marriage". Their commitment does not require marriage, but equality as people. Regards, Rubin.

Yes it's a choice because even though I've only had spontaneous erections for other guys who caught my attention since puberty and prefer intimacy with them for some reason I don't control, I choose to go with women because that's the majority rule and theocracy agrees. People should stop thinking and just do what others say and do. God didn't give you a brain to think for yourself to figure what's best for you personaly, but to learn to read the bible and go along to get along for peace and security.

I agree with this writer and just want to add a little. He confessed that he does have some feeling towards some men but he knew its wrong and not ending up controling himself but makes a choice. Who doesnt agree with that? Then will that person go sleep with an animal just because he or she is attracted to them? Or could one say i fancy guns so had to become the police, soldier or even the robber just to get access in using guns? Unfortunately if the bible happens to be the only long written history and teaching book of real people who once lived. Why dont we dedicate our time in reading it to know and learn from their ways and how they overcome such problems for a better life choice. In fact there are many examples to state, Wouldnt the scientist have terms for the thieves, liars, evil, bad and good doers as all these are some sorts of life's time developed habits? With all those being said then why give ourselves all those excuses to allow and accept granting rights to all those? Wouldnt that mean we will be granting rights to anyone coming out with a new way of life style?

I love it when a heterosexual person states that it is a fact homosexuality is a choice. You have no clue, so continue to fester in your ignorance. When science catches up, I'll have the last laugh.
