What group has the higher percentage of AIDS in US straight or gay?
You can't. The same way you can't turn a gay guy straight. You are how you are born.
You don't. Evidence suggests that people are born gay, whether it'sgenetic, hormonal, or a combination of multiple things, sexualorientation is unchangeable.
You cannot make someone feel something they don't as well as make someone something they are not.
Cultural oppression of homosexuals and superstition about homosexuality can cause shame and low self-esteem among gay and lesbian people. Extremist religious dogma and/or psychological instability motivates some people to try to become heterosexual through various "therapies," including behavioral m…odification, prayer, and electric shock. The American Psychological Association (APA) and most doctors warn that attempting to go from "gay to straight" can be both physically and psychologically dangerous and that such attempts almost universally fail to produce heterosexual orientations.

Not if you are straight and the other person is too. Also, if you are attracted to this person and want a romantic relationship with them, then you may be homosexual. [EDIT:]There are more sexual identities than Homo- Hetero- or Bi-sexual. There are many romantic affiliations and such related to t…hem also. The one thing I would change about the above answer is the clear-cut definition of sexuality. If you only want a romantic relationship with the person, then you may be homo-romantic. If you want a romantic relationship with boys and girls only, then you may be bi-romantic. If you want, or would be open to, a romantic relationship with any human being, then you may be pan-romantic. basically what I'm saying is there is absolutely no need for you to fit yourself into society's hetero or homo-normative box. You are you, and there's nothing you can do to change it, so why label yourself something with such huge stereotypes? (MORE)
No, there are no studies that show that gay men can change their orientation. All major US mental health organizations have expressed concert at churches and other organizations that claim to be able to change someone from gay to straight. Sometimes people are able to control their behavior , fo…r a time, but they are not able to change their sexual orientation. A: Yes, gay men can turn straight. Noticeable examples like the one of Michael Glatze (see) are clearly pointing that it is possible. Simply, a sexual orientation is not inborn, as it is not a genetical trait of a person like political preference or personal likes or dislikes, and like those it can change during one's life. A lot of former straight or former gays are around to be asked. Noticeable is also the experiment that showed that Drosophila Melanogaster, an insect, could be manipulated to make it like female or male individuals by operating on a protein. Churches and various organization have been considered dangerous for the reasons for the sexual orientation change, not for the fact itself. While it is very easy to change a sexual behaviour it's difficult but not impossible to completely alter someone's sexual orientation if the subject is willing to. Ego-distonic homosexuals are people who want to change their sexual orientation and trying to persuade them that there is nothing wrong with that is more coercitive than fulfilling their desire to be helped in changing into straight.

Firstly, you'd have to determine how many gay people there are. We don't really know how many there are. BUT, you can estimate. SO, if you say that between 5 and 20 percent of the American populace is composed of gay males, THEN you say that there's about 300,000,000 people in the U.S., AND there's …about 140,000,000 males, THEN there's between 7,000,000 and, at the most, 28,000,000 gay men in the U.S. The CDC did a study on MSM, gay men, that said 1 in 5, 19%, of participants were HIV+. I don't believe that this represents the whole of gays because of how the study was done. I heard somewhere else that about one percent are HIV+. So, that leaves you with a huge margin. Between 1-19% of gays are HIV+, or between 70,000 and 5,600,000 gays. (NOTE: This is mainly speculation and has vary wide margin of error. I answered this to kill time mainly.)

Some people use the term "gay" as a slang word to mean something like stupid, dumd, or something that they particularly do not like. If you are straight then you are straight and you either like men of you are a woman or you like women if you are a man. If you are straight and you wonder what is w…ould be like, people might classify you as being "bi-curious." But, if you find that you like acts with both genders, then you are classified as being bisexual. (MORE)
It differs regarding the issue but the majority is supporting: Gay marriage: May 2011 public opinion poll by ABC News/Washington Post showed 53% for. Adopt children: May 2009 Gallup poll showed 54% for.
Yes, because gay people tend to have more sexual partners throughout their lives on average.
Yes it's called being bisexual, it means you like boys and girls. Some just say bi.

Stretch every day. If you do not have your splits, it will be harder to accomplish good, high, kicks. One of the best ways to improve is also just to practice every day. Make sure that your hip doesn't come up. One of the most helpful stretches to get your kicks higher is to lie on your back and pu…ll your leg as close to your nose as you can go, keeping both legs straight. Try to keep both legs in front of you (as in, in the same place as standing with your legs closed. Not too far in or out). To stretch for your left and right splits, get on one knee. Put your hands-on either side of you, making sure that your weight is even and your hips are squared and centered. Slowly straighten your legs and keep your shoulders as far back as you can. Don't push yourself too far too quickly or you will hurt yourself. Stay for at least 30 seconds. To stretch for your middle split, lie on your back with your butt as close to a wall as you can get, with your legs up in the air against the wall. Slowly open your legs and let gravity pull your legs apart as far as you can go. Stay for 5-10 minutes. It is important to do these stretches every day to try to improve your flexibility. Your kicks will improve drastically. Keep on trying! Good luck. (MORE)

Yes, gay and straight people pay exactly the same tax. Additional Answer: That's not entirely accurate. A gay couple in a state that doesn't legally recognize their married status will pay a different tax rate, ceteris paribus, than a couple that is legally wed. There are some nuances when it co…mes to claiming dependents, household, and a few others regarding children if the family has children. So... No, not really. If the gay person is single with no kids, then yes they have the same tax rate as a heterosexual who is single with no kids. If they're married or living with a significant other, or if children are involved, the rates may indeed be different depending on where they live and how they file because they may not qualify for status as "a family."

I used to be a straight man but after my girlfriend left me i am having gay thoughts please help and i already read the ones that say i was born gay but trust me I wasn't I was straight before?
I know nothing about you, so this is just my opinion. I have had any number of men in your position. Stories are all a little different. Most of them came from families that would never allow a son to be gay . If you live your life a certain way for long enough, that becomes normal. You can't see yo…urself as gay because that would be "wrong". You have such a strong opinion of who you are that your mind will not let you think of yourself as gay. It's not the end of the world. The breakup may have caused you to doubt your manliness . A lot of men prefer the company of other men. Doesn't have to be sexual, you have common likes, speak the same language and usually don't have to worry about hurting another guys feelings. It can be a lot more comfortable. I do think we are born gay, but due to circumstances, a lot of guys are raised straight because that's the way you are going to be. Parents assume their kids are straight unless one is so obvious that it can't be helped. I think some guys just come to terms with it or discover what that itch is at a later time in their lives. Almost anywhere there is some sort of group that could help you out. I would suggest something a little less stressful than just going to a bar and getting picked up. Again, I know nothing about you, but if you explore this side of yourself, you may find that other aspects of your life that may have been out of balance make sense now and even out. Protect yourself, and pace yourself if you do make the switch. There is plenty of time to play, just don't hurt yourself in the process. Message me back if I can help or you want to discuss it.

Technically yes, but there is no point. The gay man/ women has no interest in someone of the opposite gender. Spend your time as buddz! :)
Who cares if a figure skater is gay or straight? If they perform well and give a good show, it should not concern you, nor is it your business. Just enjoy the talent.
He is straight and on November 20, 2009 his girlfriend Tatiana Totmianina had his first child, a daughter.[
You can't. (And you can't turn a gay person straight.) But since the vast majority of human beings are capable of same-sex intercourse -- even if we don't do it -- there's a chance that your straight friend might be willing to experiment. But don't try to force, or seduce, or trick your friend into …bed, and if he says "no", respect that. Good friends are hard to find! (MORE)
According to the last budget a tiny amount of the total US budget is spent on foreign aid. About 0.1 or 0.2% is the figure. In 2009 the total foreign aid was around $48 billion. President G.W. Bush submitted to Congress a total budget request of $3.1 trillion.
No. This is a myth. Sexual orientation is fixed at an early age,possibly at birth.

It is not a choice. Your sexual orientation is not changeable. Ifyou were born gay, then you are gay. But the good new is that itdoesn't matter. Just be yourself. You'll never be happy living alie. Answer Well, some people, particularly those who have taken to heart thathomosexuality is a sin ag…ainst religion, tend to claim thathomosexuality can be "cured". However, the long-term outcome forpeople who have been "cured" hasn't proven to be particularly good. In reality it seems like you are what you are, and you feel whatyou feel. A gay person can by sufficient strength of will keep him/herselffrom engaging in gay acts, but getting rid of the urge entirely isdifficult. Best option is probably to try come to terms with your feelings,and hope for a tolerant and supporting environment. The general public is becoming more and more open-minded, so beinggay is not as hard as it used to be. (MORE)
The most accurate way is to examine the fantasies you have when you masturbate. If you usually find yourself thinking about somebody of the same sex, you're probably gay -- or at least bisexual.
No. It is literally Impossible. If you are gay then you were gayfrom the start. If you are gay you cannot become straight. If youare straight you cannot become gay. You can do gay acts but youwont literally be gay. I am of the opinion that you are born one way or the other, manygay people try to be…come straight, when they should just go withthe flow. It is nothing to be ashamed of at all, those that believethat are living in the past. We should be supportive of those whocome out. They are still the same people they were before, sexualorientation should not be an issue. (MORE)
It is difficult to get accurate statistics on sexuality, but it is thought that 5% of the general population is LGBT.
No that would be discriminating. I Would also like to point out that just because someone isattracted to the same sex does NOT mean they fancy YOU! Ex; Astraight woman prefer men but does is not attracted to ALL men.This is something gay people have to deal with often, that peoplethink that just be…cause you are a gay man you want all men. That isvery far from the truth. If the straight person is the one with the problem let him /her gosomewhere else. The gay person has done nothing wrong. (MORE)
This is unknown, since marines are not surveyed about their sexualorientations. It's likely that the percentage is similar to thegeneral population: about 5%.
I'm pretty sure that he's straight. If he is gay, then I'll be very upset; he looks VERY good(:
You can't and shouldn't try. Most males have had some sort of same sex experience at some point in their lives even if they will not admit to it. They were curious and that was that. All you can do is let it be known that you would be available should they be interested and leave it at that.
You cannot turn a straight person gay. A person is born with their sexual orientation and nothing can change this. They may decide to lead a homosexual lifestyle, but they will still be a heterosexual and be attracted to members of the opposite sex.
The gay guy has to be natural and not force himself upon the straight guy. He can drop hints such as wearing tight clothing, being shirtless, or walk around in his boxers when he is with the straight guy and see what happens. Of course, if a guy is truly straight, then a gay guy can never get him…. If flirting and showing off makes him fall for you, then chances are, he was never truly heterosexual. (MORE)
The same as anyone's definition of gay: a person who is attractedto someone of the same gender.
You can't change from gay to straight, but you can be a happyperson. Choose a college in a gay-friendly city, and you will feelmuch better about yourself. You definitely don't have to come out as gay until you are ready,so that is not a concern. Finish high school first.
No, gay is by definition quite different than straight. If you are attracted to both men and women, that would be called bisexual.
None of the members of Straight No Chaser are gay. Straight NoChaser has released 4 albums and 2 EP's.
Why are gay males blamed for most of the sexual abuse-assaults against children when the group is actually straight men?
Because America is a homophobic nation. Sorry I wish it wasn't so but there it is.
Unprotected anal sex. Basically any means through which infected hiv bood, semen or milk can be introduced into a non infected person's blood stream.
Well basically cigarettes have higher daily percentage because there are some parts of world in which people don't even know the meaning of social networking but smoke cigarettes alot. So, i'll say that smoking cigarettes everyday is alot higher in percentage than daily social networking.

0% of gay people go straight. It's simply not possible. No studyhas ever successfully demonstrated that sexual orientation can bechanged.
The words you just listed are just that words. The meaning behind it is a mutally agreed definition for the word. If the words were to be switched then nothing else would happen. It would just be a different word used for the same meaning.
