Guest Opinion: An Open Letter to 'Gay' Teens Comments

Yes, you may be physically attracted to people of the same sex, but how you act on those attractions is entirely your choice. Who you are - your identity - is not defined by your sexual feelings, temptations or behaviors. The difference between who you are and what you feel or do is as the difference between night and day.

    Interesting how the group Courage/Encourage isn't promoted enough. If I were talking to gay teens, I'd be understanding and commpassionate to their frustration of having an orientation they never wanted but I'd remind them they don't have to live a lifestyle of sin to feel like they belong. They don't have to eat up the liberal BS that sex is everything.

    It's nice you quoted articles that pertain to gay males but women are more likely to engage in same-sex attraction and act on it. I would encourage you to include women in your future articles and be equally prepared to talk to your daughters about this since it is more likely to affect them. Check out Extent, Nature, and Consequences of Intimate Partner Violence: Findings From the National Violence Against Women Survey from the National Institute of Justice to see that cohabiting women are more likely to experience domestic violence than any other group.
