Thanks, U-Dog, for understanding. I hope you all know me well enough by now to not read between the lines any bigotry on my part. And I'm of course not suggesting that bisexuals have a choice in being bisexual. They do, however... and by definition... have a marvelous option of choosing a lifestyle. I just think that it's unfortunate that some (albeit only "some") have used that "ability" to cause harm.
It hurts my heart to think that any of my friends here might take this as lashing out at you. Please accept my apologies for creating that impression and know that I was speaking to the smaller part of a larger population.
I further realize that such viewpoints are destined to be controversial, and would rather drop the point alltogether than lose friendships made here, among you. I ask that you understand, however, that my purpose was to consider a viewpoint that may help all of us to better understand the larger dynamics behind the ongoing bigotry in our country... and in considering such possibilities, perhaps be better equipped to promote change. In other words... if we can better understand what is broken, we are better equipped to "fix it."
Peace and Love, Troy
