Homosexuality Quotes

One should no more deplore homosexuality than left-handedness.  ~Towards a Quaker View of Sex, 1964 I think God is a callous bitch not making me a lesbian.  I'm deeply disappointed by my sexual interest in men.  ~Diamanda Galas The one bonus of not lifting the ban on gays in the military is that the next time the government mandates a draft we can all declare homosexuality instead of running off to Canada.  ~Lorne Bloch Soldiers who are not afraid of guns, bombs, capture, torture or death say they are afraid of homosexuals.  Clearly we should not be used as soldiers; we should be used as weapons.  ~Letter to the editor, The Advocate No matter how far in or out of the closet you are, you still have a next step.  ~Author Unknown People who can't think of anything else but whether the person you love is indented or convex should be doomed not to think of anything else but that, and so miss the other ninety-five percent of life.  ~Robert Towne It always seemed to me a bit pointless to disapprove of homosexuality.  It's like disapproving of rain.  ~Francis Maude You are digging for the answers until your fingers bleed, to satisfy the hunger, to satiate the need.... And as you pray in your darkness for wings to set you free, you are bound to your silent legacy.  ~Melissa Etheridge, "Silent Legacy," Yes I Am, 1993 The closet is an awful place to die.  ~Author Unknown To hear two American men congratulating each other on being heterosexual is one of the most chilling experiences - and unique to the United States.  You don't hear two Italians sitting around complimenting each other because they actually like to go to bed with women.  The American is hysterical about his manhood.  ~Gore Vidal There's this illusion that homosexuals have sex and heterosexuals fall in love.  That's completely untrue.  Everybody wants to be loved.  ~Boy George Straight Americans need... an education of the heart and soul.  They must understand - to begin with - how it can feel to spend years denying your own deepest truths, to sit silently through classes, meals, and church services while people you love toss off remarks that brutalize your soul.  ~Bruce Bawer, The Advocate, 28 April 1998 What are you trying to protect heterosexual marriages from?  There isn't a limited amount of love in Iowa.  It isn't a non-renewable resource.  If Amy and Barbara or Mike and Steve love each other, it doesn't mean that John and Mary can't.  ~Ed Fallon People sometimes think I'm gay because I once played a gay in a movie.  It's funny.  Audiences don't think you're a murderer if you play a murderer, but they do think you're gay if you play a gay.  ~Perry King It's hard enough to be taken seriously in the struggle for gay rights without having a bunch of straight girls running around kissing each other to get the attention of the boys and videocameras.  ~M. Robin D'Antan, 2002 Let my lusts be my ruin, then, since all else is a fake and a mockery.  ~Hart Crane I get sick of listening to straight people complain about, "Well, hey, we don't have a heterosexual-pride day, why do you need a gay-pride day?"  I remember when I was a kid I'd always ask my mom:  "Why don't we have a Kid's Day?  We have a Mother's Day and a Father's Day, but why don't we have a Kid's Day?"  My mom would always say, "Every day is Kid's Day."  To all those heterosexuals that bitch about gay pride, I say the same thing:  Every day is heterosexual-pride day!  Can't you people enjoy your banquet and not piss on those of us enjoying our crumbs over here in the corner?  ~Rob Nash Wouldn't it be great if you could only get AIDS from giving money to television preachers?  ~Elayne Boosler In itself, homosexuality is as limiting as heterosexuality:  the ideal should be to be capable of loving a woman or a man; either, a human being, without feeling fear, restraint, or obligation.  ~Simone de Beauvoir Trust a nitwit society like this one to think that there are only two categories - fag and straight.  ~Gore Vidal Bisexuality immediately doubles your chances for a date on Saturday night.  ~Woody Allen The world is not divided into sheeps and goats.  Not all things are black nor all things white.  It is a fundamental of taxonomy that nature rarely deals with discrete categories.  Only the human mind invents categories and tries to force facts into separated pigeon-holes.  The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects.  The sooner we learn this concerning sexual behavior the sooner we shall reach a sound understanding of the realities of sex.  ~Alfred Kinsey, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, 1948 My bisexual dilemma was that my gay friends thought I'm a lesbian in denial and my straight friends thought... I'm a lesbian in denial.  ~Lacie Harmon Labels are for filing.  Labels are for clothing.  Labels are not for people.  ~Martina Navratilova The important thing is not the object of love, but the emotion itself.  ~Gore Vidal Pronouns make it hard to keep our sexual orientation a secret when our co-workers ask us about our weekend.  "I had a great time with... them."  Great!  Now they don't think you're queer - just a big slut!  ~Judy Carter I can't help looking gay.  I put on a dress and people say, "Who's the dyke in the dress?"  ~Karen Ripley My cousin is an agoraphobic homosexual, which makes it kind of hard for him to come out of the closet.  ~Bill Kelly As long as society is anti-gay, then it will seem like being gay is anti-social.  ~Joseph Francis My mom blames California for me being a lesbian.  "Everything was fine until you moved out there."  "That's right, Mom, we have mandatory lesbianism in West Hollywood.  The Gay Patrol busted me, and I was given seven business days to add a significant amount of flannel to my wardrobe.  ~Coley Sohn We love men.  We just don't want to see them naked.  ~Two Nice Girls The next time someone asks you, "Hey, howdja get to be a homosexual anyway?" tell them, "Homosexuals are chosen first on talent, then interview... then the swimsuit and evening gown competition pretty much gets rid of the rest of them."  ~Karen Williams If Michelangelo had been straight, the Sistine Chapel would have been wallpapered.  ~Robin Tyler Girls who put out are tramps.  Girls who don't are ladies.  This is, however, a rather archaic usage of the word.  Should one of you boys happen upon a girl who doesn't put out, do not jump to the conclusion that you have found a lady.
