PHILADELPHIA Take five or 10 minutes, the professor said, and write down things that you love, like, need or enjoy.
Now pair up with someone you dont know and spend 20 minutes introducing yourself. Talk about whatever you want. But dont mention anything that you wrote down.
Try going on for a half-hour without a word about the most important things in life. Imagine a full day.
It might be difficult, said instructor Robin Brennan. Thats what this course is about. That is just a glimpse of what it is like for somebody who is LGBT lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.
The course is about LGBT health disparities, many of which such as higher-than-average rates of suicide, drug addiction and smoking are linked to greater stress. Fear of sharing personal information, even with a doctor, doesnt help.

It is well to recognize that homosexuality is strongly correlated with ill health, even if the approach here is too PC.
LGBT’s who don’t want to talk about their problem objectively will probably find intubation in an emergency unit quite distressful!
Cry me a freaking river. You’re perverted and you can’t tell others about your perversion.
Personally I have no desire to talk to other people about my problems, personal demons, sins, weaknesses, etc.
I sure as hell would not tell my doctor anything.
I would bet a bunch of them would find that pleasurable.
What else is there?
The CDC should have a special section for the faggots. Every time these pukes meet, a new disease comes out it.
I had a primary care doctor - I’ll call him “Dr. Yamato” (not his name but he’s Japanese) - who I saw for maybe 8 years. Then I went through counseling and received counseling approval for estrodial.
I took that approval to Dr. Yamato and you know what? He refused to fill the prescription saying he wasn’t medically competent to prescribe hormones in HRT and he didn’t believe in it.
So I left and found a doctor who did fill the prescription.
And now, 5 or 6 years later, you know who my primary care doctor is? It’s still Dr. Yamato, because he’s a damn fine doctor AND I know he’s honest and I can trust him.
I didn’t whine and I didn’t sue him. I respect his professionalism and ethics. And he still won’t re-up my estrogen. Good for him.
if it isn’t a man’s actual thingy, I think yes.
from what gross and inappropriate things I have heard a lot of it has to do with these pervs sticking stuff in themselves that has no business being stuck in a human
Now why wouldn't anybody want to talk to someone about those most important things in hisife?
This will become a “right” under Obamacare. I don’t know anything about transgender “issues”, but I’m sure they’re expensive, and they last the rest of your life.
I think this is patently ridiculous because I could spend hours talking with someone I did not know and never once mention that I have sex with a man (my husband). I have talked to strangers and not even gotten to the married part. I’ve talked with people at political rallies and other events - Christian events, for example - where we just talked about the IDEALS. And, once you get to talking about the Lord, well, that itself could go on for eternity.
Will the problems that arise in old age from continuous anal penetration be talked about? One of the more gross aspects of an unhealthy lifestyle.
1. Take out the Transgenders and what is the Suicide rate?
2. Otherwise, I have no problems with doctors Learning about ailments. Like I’ll hazard a guess that gay men have more butt problems then heteros.
I just want them to sew me up or whatever, charge a reasonable fee and let me get out of there.
“Will the problems that arise in old age from continuous anal penetration be talked about?”
Righto. I have people who’ve been friends for many years, and I’ve never discussed my sex life or sexual preferences with them.
The oddest thing about this article is its assumption that for “gay” people their sexuality is the most important thing in their life.
That said, gay people (men, anyway) should discuss their sex life with their HCPs because of the multiple additional health risks and challenges such a lifestyle creates.
What old age?
My guess is not as high, but still higher than normals.
A tiny percentage survive
Homosexuals are suffering from a disorder, not lack of understanding and compassion............
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
How does one go about proving that they’re gay?
So their genetically different, which requires special care? i thought doctors treated signs and symptoms?
>> “How does one go about proving that theyre gay?” <<
By holding a picture of a big filthy disgusting anus in front of them and watching their eyes light up.
Homosexuality is strongly correlated with early death.
(for good reasons)
Make sure you wear your PPE and be extra-careful with the blood samples.
My last conversation with my doctor went like this:
“I thought I just stubbed my toe, but now that the whole foot is all black and blue, perhaps I should get an xray or something”.
I didn’t think that was too revealing personally.
The Leftists need to compile and codify all their PC crap into a book. It could be the Sharia law for Leftists. Totalitarians think alike.
Is this sarcasm or some strange joke on your part? You’re a guy...right? That photo of you on your homepage is you in drag.
(Try going on for a half-hour without a word about the most important things in life. Imagine a full day.)
I do it every day. My wife, my Church, several other things are most important to me but I do not talk about them all day long. This is just silly nonsense to spread the homosexual agenda
The course is about LGBT health disparities, many of which such as higher-than-average rates of suicide, drug addiction and smoking are linked to greater stress. ‘
Well living a life of sin as a pervert is likely very stressful but you gotta live with the choices you make or change them...........
I know one homosexual man - anyone on FR would consider him a good guy, if they didn’t take the sexual orientation into account. Never triggered my gaydar except that he had no awareness of me as a woman. It took him about two years to mention a friend of his and another year before I realized that friend lived with him as his partner. In that time I must have mentioned my husband a few dozen times. Maybe it is hurtful if you can never mention someone dear to you, but that was his choice; most homosexuals I know are pretty open about it; they mention a partner by name early on.
Other people might have loved ones they can’t mention either, a mistress, a second wife, a secret child - might want to see before they die in the hospital, but can’t upset their first family.
so they are still doing this type of indoctrination in medical school? Nothing new.
I always lied when they asked me to bare my soul, and later I usually arranged for the nurses to page me with an “emergency”.
As for “not talking about” things: Well, some of us go days without talking about our sex life to strangers. Big deal.
No...I’m transgender. You’ve probably never noticed it because I only touch on it on “LGBT” threads when I get annoyed by the actions of these jerks who’ve taken it upon themselves to represent me.
Transgenders - people who present sex-confusion from the start - are probably around 50% conservative. Drag Queens - people who present after puberty - are around 99% liberal. They’re fetishists, while transgenders have mental defects.
And it’s pretty bad. It ruined my life and actually IS what I would wish on my worst enemy. But it’s like being born without arms - there’s no walking away from it because even if I could walk away from my brain, transgenders almost always have secondary sex characteristics that have to be pushed toward male.
Fortunately, I fall into the 30% of transgenders who only date women. That’s pretty much the only thing I’m thankful about.lol
But, politically, I’m probably pretty much the same as you. Giving minors hormones is child abuse. There is no such thing as “gay marriage”. LGBT people should not have any law pertaining to them specifically: one set of laws for everyone, period. If a business ever asked me to leave, I’d leave - they have the right to refuse service to me. And %#%$# off with the parades, already. There’s nothing to be proud of in being LBG or T.
If someone with no arms came up to me and demanded a parade where they got to run up and down the streets in their underwear to celebrate their pride in their defect, I’d tell them to pull their head out of their ass on their way to going-to-hell.
There’s some harsh talk at FR but I don’t mind. You know why? Because I’ve never had a problem with a conservative in real life. And my father was in a management position at Focus On The Family for 12 years. They’re good people.
All I have to do is treat people how I want to be treated: with civility. I don’t demand that people participate in my delusion.
Every time I’ve had a problem, though, it’s with a liberal. They like to think they’re open minded but, they’re the jerks who end up causing problems for people like me.
I’m sorry if I tripped either of you out. I’ve been a FReeper so long, I’m used to everyone knowing.
Observe all bloodborne pathogen protocols.
Identify foreign object.
I know the sodomites get mad when I make this comparison, but it is fully accurate.
A pedophile can make the same arguments this professor says apply to a homo.
You are right on target. This axiom is entire appropriate concerning these self-absorbed reprobates.
“Great Minds Discuss Ideas; Average Minds Discuss Events; Small Minds Discuss People.”
I’m fine with whatever you do. Because its your life and not my business to judge. I was confused because I’ve been here a while and lurked for a long time prior to signing up. I thought I remembered your homepage once saying that you had that photo up of you as a joke or a trick...Hence my confusion.
Anyway, all kinds of people have all kinds of quirks, kinks, drives, urges, etc. Some, like yours, are more visible than others, but everyone has something others would find “different”. That’s why the judge-y people here who squawk the loudest are so absurd. I’m sure they all have their own stuff they hide from others.
Thanks for your candor.
I know what you mean about judge-y people but, to be honest, I’d rather see people slightly too wound-up about the LGBT subject, than not wound-up enough.
I’ve spent time in the belly of the LGBT beast and I can assure you, the strident insanity that bleeds through in media reports on their activities is no where near as bad as it actually is.
Their goals undermine society as a whole and create dangerous situations. And like unions, they have no idea when to stop and they don’t care.
If they have problems speaking about what is important to them, then it's a sure sign that they are ill.
I have no problem speaking about my sex life to my doctor (or I would if I actually had one. Being widowered doesn't allow me to have sex). And that's OK. it' such a miniscule part of my life that it's unimportant.
But to the 'homosexual' it is the sole defining characteristic of their life and EVERYTHING revolves around that one facet.
BTW, the instructors exercise was futile. He had teh class do small talk for 20 minutes. If you're not 'homosexual' and obsessed with sex, this is a very easy thing to do. I can talk on the weather for at least 20 minutes. I don't know a single person who goes up to a stranger and starts in on what's personally important to them (Lone exception being during evangelizing).
