I don’t believe there is a country where homosexuality is seeing, at best, as not-so-bad, although some countries/societies/cultures may be more tolerant than others about it. Most of us must have received a dose of homophobia at some point in our lives, but most (dopers) seem to have grown out of it.
When did you realize that, “well, what the heck? There’s nothing wrong with being homesexual!”
Strangely I never did realize it, because I don’t remember a time in my life when I had a negative view of homesexuality.
I know, I know. Sounds difficult to believe, but that’s the way it is.
I think I know why: My mom’s closest sister is what is known today as “a hag”. For some reason her best friends were 3 male homosexuals. Growing up I spent a lot of time at her house because her kids were my playmates and they didn’t leave far from my house.
My aunt’s friends seemed to like kids so I always liked them.
I don’t remember any time in my life where I had a negative view of homosexuality. I remember I have been accused of being a lesbian before I even knew what a lesbian was because I was always outspoken about the fact that homosexuality didn’t bother me and that I didn’t think it was anyone’s business. I am not proud of it, it was just the way it was, I never had the chance to analyze it.
