I am a long time lurker at EC, especially in this subforum. I would like to share my experiences, and I have some comments and questions. I believe my father is a homosexual. He has been married to my mother for over thirty years, but I have never seen him show any sexual interest in any women ever. I believe that the only time he has ever had sex with my mother is when he was attempting to conceive me and my siblings. One time when I was 14 I walked into the house from outside and I saw my father watching a show on tv. THis show might have been like a Spring Break event show on MTV filmed in Panama City or something. It showed these naked muscular men on an outdoor stage, and the men wore nothing except that they had whip cream over their genitals. When my father saw that I had walked into the room, he quickly ran to the tv and changed the channel. That makes me think that he is a homosexual, rather than asexual. Doesn't it sound to you like my father is a homosexual? I think that my father only married my mother because that was what society expected him to do. Homosexuality was not nearly as accepted in the 1970s when my parents married as it is accepted today. In an ideal world, my father would have entered into a homosexual relationship with a man, and my mother would have married a straight guy. I think that homophobia does not just harm homosexuals. Homophobia also can sometimes harm the heterosexuals that enter into relationships with homosexuals. For those of you homosexuals who are married to opposite sex spouses, did you know that you were homosexual before you married?
