I'm trying to figure that one out too. I mean, if it *does* influence your spirituality...that says more about *you* than it does about *them.* If what someone else does with their own body--not affecting anyone else but themselves--is enough to send your "spirituality" into a tailspin, that's pretty sad. That sort of attitude has been used for centuries, to "justify" all sorts of nasty shit.

Ahh, sorry about that GK. I was misremembering someone else on that and attributing it to you.

Funny how you all blast me, and ask how it affects me, but none of you have yet to say how any of this actually affects you, except for "It makes me feel good!"

What's wrong with doing what makes you feel good, if it's not hurting anyone else?

That... has actually been my point, I think, two pages ago? It literally does not affect me, so why should I be bothered?

Whether someone is homo- or heterosexual, identifies as man or woman, or wants to dress up as a horse and be fed from a trough - none of this affects me. It does not make my life any better or worse, so why should I butt into someone else's business?

The point isn't to "feel good", although Mad Mike is right that there's nothing wrong with that. No, the point is to show respect to someone else's way of living, and not judge them based on something that does no harm to anyone else.

Oh I think you're giving everyone a lot of ammunition to blast you with.

I also think you enjoy the attention
