    Which proves that homosexuality is SIN and a CHOICE. What about all of the supposedly “Gay” men who were quite capable of having ERECTIONS for YEARS with WOMEN??? You people are SICK and liberals are GODLESS PIECES OF SHYT who are led by their father the DEVIL to undermine that which GOD has created, the FAMILY.

  • Guest

    This kind of shoots the `born that way` theory all to crap. Many of these women were married for a long time.

  • Los Gayringo

    You are Pathophilac and celebrating what Darwin would say could be the worst brain failure possible in Evolution?

  • Redford1

    They all look alike; same cast over their features. A kind of implosive, sullen rejection of life.

  • HmmLetMeThink

    So pretty much: they’re not born that way and have the ability to chose?

  • jrwlsju

    Every woman I have ever known has had at least one sexual experience with another women. I get the sense that all women are bi. Men, not so much. We tend to pick a side and stick to it.

  • David Forrester

    God created man and woman to be happy together. He designed it that way. For our extreme happiness if you do it right. OK, sure, You can break all of His principles at any time but the end results speak for themselves. What an ugly bunch. Look into their eyes. Loneliness, lost, out of place, no life worth living. Crystal clear. You reap what you sow. Case closed. Hope people can learn from these mistakes

  • kjj

    typical dykes, all look like men,

  • jaydeebee

    If Frida Kahlo was bi, why is it a shock that she would have a relationship with a man? As for the Anne Heche fling with Ellen, I thought it was a given that she did that as a publicity stunt.

  • Ursus_Indomitus

    Stupid dykes.

    So the implication of this stupid article is that the gay life style is a choice!

    This is the stupidest media post ever, and its actually homophobic too! Why are the private lives of these people of interest to anyone but their friends? Publicly outing celebrities (or semi celebrities) private lives, or outing anyone really, for money (IE: commercially like on a yahoo website) is nothing short of vulgar! When a celebrity breaks the law then chatter away but a person’s private life should not be the public’s playground!

    Shame on me for clicking on it!
    Shame on everyone involved in writing and producing this.
    Shame on Yahoo and all the other websites who published this bile.
    Shame on an industry built on sucking energy!

      I have a secret…We ALL were always here, just didn’t tell ya. Is that what you want? Hey I’m 43 and still haven’t told my friends, boss, mother/father/siblings, my priest or my dog and of course God, Allah or Budda or my higher power that I’m gay yet. Yes, I am on sui cide watch punk…Oh, or any one in the Marine Corp either. ……………………… BIA TCH!!!!!

  • GeaVox

    What a bizarre channel! Petty-minded non-news and who-cares-news, inane comments of the small-minded intent on media masturbation! I got here accidentally, clicked on the wrong link – and will NEVER return! – but I HAD to try and shake someone awake here, lest there should be some intelligence after all…

    In case you haven’t noticed, there is a global crisis, several ,separate Jihads rage across Asia and Africa, funded by the rabid and fabulously wealthy Wahabi Nations – Saudi Arabia, Qtar, Kwait, UAE… Climate Change, Collapse of biodiversity – including the INDISPENSABLE BEES, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Pact, right-wing advances throughout Europe and ‘Kreesteeyayn’ religious fanatics, 100% inbred and 100% insane, seeking to overthrow the rule of law in favour of a hate culture that is AS misogynist and homophobic as Islam… and you want to be reading this PAPWAKEUP PEOPLE!!!! Stop taking whatever is keeping you in this QUIESCENT STUPOR!!! Unless you ACT NOW you will BE the slaves of the future, your children WILL be born into debt slavery and indentured labour. Watch ZEITGEIST The movie and the two sequels, find out how your world really work and FIGHT BACK legally, peacefully, and democratically PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS! Your elders fought for them, some even died for them!
    Sheesh! Unbebloodylievable!

    whatever they are they arnt famous cos I don’t know any of them………even the????

  • Prickly

    I’d call some of these women like Anne Heche Opportunists more than lesbians.

  • SickOfConservatives

    The irony is most of these black lesbians are thought leaders in the black community, particularly among women. It’s no accident most sistas can’t keep a man.

    • gerihewitt

      She had open marriage with her bisexual husband. They remained together until she died. Such stability obviously doesn’t fit in with the clearly anti-bisexual agenda of the author.

  • BobLobLaw

    Boss sip, now you know this doesn’t have anything to do with blackness. Will you please stop trying to be sneaky, and just come out and say that you’re trying to push the gay agenda? Somebody on your staff, if not the entire staff, must really have a taste for the rainbow because every day there’s some gay article, even when it’s one hundred percent about non black folk. Black folks don’t need anything else destructive pushed on us. Keep the gay out. Gay is gayness…not blackness. Just saying…

    • GeaVox

      PS You are also the funniest trained monkey clown this side of the circus!

    • Medusa Jordan

      Funny I should read this when just earlier I was talking to an Arab gay guy about how some black people call homosexuality the ‘white mans disease’. The trouble is , with this attitude, is that it is rooted in irrational bigotry. There are loads of POC who are LGB, and they haven’t caught ANYTHING from the white man! Wanda Sykes and Alice Walker look pretty black to me, and I am sure they would not appreciate your assessment of lesbianism as destructive, whatever the hell that means!

      • joe franklin keith

        Destructive means destructive as in destroying family structure.
        Notice the word de-struct, the root is “struct”.
        Family STRUCTURE IS BEING systematically and purposely DE-STRUCTED in exchange for perverse sexual gratification.
        Gone are the days when your best friend is a non sexual, non romatic bond between two men or two women. The shackles are off and best friends these days have to get it on ….sexually!

        Destructive also means the more gay people there is and the more they control and manipulate the media, the more America will undergo societal breakdown contributing to the rotting decay of societal order.

        It means gay SPECIAL INTEREST groups and many (not all ) gay people are not content with simply being gay and being accepted for who they are but as less than 5% of the population they want to pull the rest of us into their world and color everything with a tinge of gay sending a message to the children of the world that being gay is the preferred way to be.

        This article proves that MANY PEOPLE CHOOSE to be gay!

        Personally my opinion is that if you are confused about something as basic as your gender you can’t help but live a confused life and spread confusion everywhere you go….just look around and anyone that knows any gay people know for a fact their lives are always full of drama.

        • Medusa Jordan

          Your rant is so very inaccurate and raving that it is futile to provide you with any kind of rebuttal. Except I will point out that the most homophobic people are often hiding from feelings that they cannot deal with!

          • joe franklin keith

            “most homophobic people are often hiding from feelings that they cannot deal with!”

            That sounds vaguely familiar to another statement common to gays “most gay people are born gay”
            This article blows that claim clear out of the water….so please forgive me if I ignore any other claims you make.

            By the way the feelings I face when I think about gay people are mostly compassion, empathy and sadness, so sad for them that they live in a perpetual state of confusion rejecting the very body they live in as contrary to their “sexual feelings”

            • dev2008

              People were talking about bisexuality. But it’s true that studies show homophobics are most likely insecure about their own sexuality. That’s why there is so much hatred. And yes science is even proving their is a difference in people born LBGT. God made them that way. Like it or not, take it up with God.

              • joe franklin keith

                Don’t lie on behalf of science, they haven’t a clue why people CHOOSE to have sex with someone of the same gender. IN FACT Only human “creativity”, a nicer way of saying “perversion”, can conjure up “created ways to make body parts do things they were not designed to do. Science cannot determine why men become attracted to men and women to women no more than science can determine why some men are attracted to big butt women while others are attracted to big breasts, little breasts, skinny women, large women, wide hips, long legs, pretty feet or whatever!! Give us a break on the science tip….and again this article PROVES that these women WERE NOT born gay, they became gay and that dear friend is a learned sexual proclivity not an inherent one.

                • Yan Orrstef

                  you are missing the point they were married to men because thats what society expects of you, that’s how you gain acceptance in society by being a sheep trying to blend in and trying to run away from the real you! these woman were always gay, just that they rightly or wrongly tried to live a so called “normal” life, before the reality that they are gay caught up with them

                  • joe franklin keith

                    Respectfully as much as possible I would suggest that YOU are in fact missing the point, giving the usual song and dance about someone being gay from birth.
                    The article is making a point about BI-SEXUAL WOMEN,
                    Translated this means women who like MEN AND WOMEN
                    It’s near to impossible to build a life with, habitually sleep with, have babies with, make love to someone whom with whom you are not attracted.
                    The fact that these women LATER became attracted to women disproves your point and makes mine crystal clear.
                    This article is about women who have sex with men but also like having sex with women and in some cases have LEARNED to prefer men. It is the height of presumption and an exercise in assumption to make an assertion that these women were born gay and were somehow forced to make love to, make children and families with a man with whom they did not like or enjoy…SORRY, try again!

                • JusticeB

                  Actually science can prove why men are attracted to women with big breasts and big butts.

              • Tonye Oliver

                Studies? any body can come up with studies to say anything that want it to say, which science is that? God made no one gay, don’t lie against God!!!! being gay is a fact for some people and there are reasons why this may be so, but it is not a NATURAL orientation. Since you mentioned God, note that God made Adam and Eve not Eve and Tracy or Adam and Brian. Get the point?

                • dev2008

                  God made some people gay, straight, bi, trans. Not sure why but it’s the way of the world and yes some test done on MRI’s and brains of gay vs straight people show a difference in the brain. They are studying genes to find out if it’s in the DNA. You’re using religion to hate and I’m sure God hates that more than anything.

                  • Dean Edward

                    Ignoring the aspect of free will choices makes you look stupid.

                • Teresa Teri

                  It really is very close to impossible to have an intelligent conversation with people who are completely uneducated and don’t know it. In every aspect people run a continuum – that means that they are a variation along a line of 2 extremes – let me say it very simply for you: people are born differently from one another and that’s natural and scientifically proven. Also, this is true in the animal kingdom, in which animals run the same spectrum sexually – again, for you: animals are born differently to one another. PLEASE read a book (you haven’t even obviously read the Bible (and yes, I have) or you’d know better than to judge others, you’d know better than to try to push old testament citings on others – which you definitey do not follow yourself; no-one does – and you’d practice more on that ‘love one another’ command… Course, you are obviously a ‘pick and choose’, uneducated biblically, secularly and scientifically Christian. Gag.

                • Peter_Lyon

                  Since there is no such thing as “God”, he did not make anybody. People are what they are.

            • JusticeB

              Are you thinking of transgender persons? Gay people don’t reject anything about their bodies.

            • donalda

              People are born gay, straight or bisexual. A lot of gay people succumb to societal pressure and enter into straight relationships marry and have children. Yet they’re still gay at the end of the day. Bisexual people are open to loving either sex quite willingly as with Anne Heche and Lindsay Lohan. There’s no confusion or switching really. People know deep down what they prefer sexually. I knew I was straight from day one. It’s not something I chose. LGBT folks don’t choose either. It is what it is and people need to accept that.

              • joe franklin keith

                It’s amazing how you folks come up with this stuff completely ignoring the aspect of SEXUAL PLEASURE!
                You like a lot of these folks act as though the familiar adage, “try it you might like it” has no influence on why people switch hit or play on both teams and by neglecting to factor that basic base reality into your opinions and comments is either disingenuous, naive or patently ignorant. Among young people there is a very popular descriptive term for what I am talking about it’s called “BI-CURIOUS” Used mostly by young females it means exactly what it suggests…girls, young girls are CURIOUS about what it would be like to be with their best friend or an older woman. They are curious about what it feel like to experience the touch and sensuality of another female and quite often this is due to callous abusive treatment or traumatic romantic experiences with young boys or actual abuse by older men.
                Start including some comments about BI-CURIOUS teen-agers and you’ll be able to provide some balance to your overstated assessment of why people crossover or switch hit!

        • JusticeB

          Bisexual people do not choose to be bisexual, they either are or they are not. The choice is whether they follow their hearts or stick with one gender just to please the Pope.

          • joe franklin keith

            Puh-lease!!! There is nothing scientific at all about variety…it’s a basic human perception that more variety is better and different is more exciting whether it’s more women or more men, more women and more men, more variety, transgender, cross gender, more positions more possibilities for sexual gratification ….nothing scientific at all, base human desire and greed!
            Get Real

            • JusticeB


          • joe franklin keith

            C’mon, everybody has a choice and free will, bi sexual people are no different just exercising their CHOICE to try something different. If you are a women who believes or feels like a man inside that’s one thing but if you are ALL WOMAN and you desire being with other WOMEN who are also ALL WOMAN, then you are doing nothing but exploring sexual pleasure with someone of the same sex…that’s not a born trait except for maybe the fact that it’s not naturally disgusting to you.
            These women in question were clearly not disgusted with men evidenced by the actual lives they have led as hetero women.

            • Matrixz127

              You are the most f***ing retarded pile of s**t ever! Why don’t you say that crap to a mob of gay people! I’m sure they will enjoy kicking you hard in the face, breaking it! Then cutting your windpipe in two with a boxcutter. Then they would bash your face in and cut it to ribbons, and then slit your throat f***ing b**ch! Assuming you have balls that is!

              (makes clucking sounds)

              And if you want to rebuttal, you can find me at my Youtube account…if your balls haven’t shriveled first that is!

    • No such thing as bi

      There is no such thing. Just look at how old most of them are
      They all lived a lie knowing they exclusively like women, but it wasn’t accepted at all when they were married, and I’m sure some of them just did it to have kids. They are no different from down low men. My cousin was with a so called bi girl, but now she’s only with women, my cousin thought it was s€xy until he got cut loose, and has to up that child support every 2 weeks. People like this are liars and users.

                  We will ALL appear before the Judgment seat of Christ. But NOWHERE in the ENTIRE BIBLE does it equate self righteousness with the sin of HOMOSEXUALITY for which there is a DEATH PENALTY, Lev 20:13. Please show me the death penalty for self righteousness and please explain how it is “self righteous’ to say that someone will be judged by God, since GOD is the one who said it? You’re a MORON.

      • Medusa Jordan

        no such thing – you really are an idiot. Everyone knows that sexual orientation is on a continuum and whilst most people are at the hetero end, many many people are along that continuum. I have identified as bisexual for 9 years, this to me means being GENUINELY open to relationship with men and women, ergo, I AM BISEXUAL!

I am celibate and I am 50 years old, so do not tell me that I am promiscuous or confused. I really hope you are a teen cos if you are any older you really have no business being so rude and ill informed!

          How is it “offensive” to voice the opinion that there is no such thing as bisexual??? How does this offend you? If you actually believe that there IS a thing called bisexuality how does the fact that others disagree “offend” you? he didn’t curse at you. He didn’t prescribe HELL as your ultimate destination, WHICH IT IS (finally, something for you to be “offended” at!) so why the pretense of “offense”. If someone said there is no such thing as TALL people, would that “offend” you if you’re 6’5″ or would you just say that guy was crazy? How would you be “offended”???

          What’s really going on is that you are in REBELLION AGAINST GOD and you KNOW IT. That is why the DEMON that leads your life DEMANDS that you get OTHERS to JOIN YOU IN YOUR REBELLION and if they DON’T you’re “offended”.

            CCBanks – I do not appreciate being called ‘loose or confused’. I can be offended by that, and if I am, don’t need permission from a bible thumping lunatic.
