Homosexuality is the feeling of emotional and sexual attraction towards people of the same sex. Men feel attracted to men and are referred to as gay. Women feel attracted to women and they are referred to as lesbians. Some people feel attracted to men and women and are referred to as intersex.
Homosexuality can appear in a person’s life in different forms. Some people know very early in childhood or adolescence that they are homosexual. Others only have feelings of homosexuality at some point in their lives. There are those who feel attracted to people of the same sex and do not experience these feelings.
√ Causes of homosexuality:
We don’t know why people are heterosexual, bisexual, or gay. But there are some sure things:
√Sexual attraction is an unconscious decision.
√Gender is not hereditary, like your eyes or hair color.
√Heterosexual, gay and bisexual people exist in all countries and cultures. However, homosexual relationships are less frequent than heterosexual attractions.
Many countries recognize the right to self-determination of sexual orientation. However, gay and bisexual people are not acceptable in many countries.
Sometimes they are subjected to discrimination and even persecution. In Norway and many European countries it is forbidden to discriminate against gay and bisexual people. According to the law, no person is allowed to treat people differently, exclude them, or discriminate them due to their being gay or bisexual.
√Telling people about your being a lesbian or bisexual:
Many gay or bisexual people feel it is important to tell friends, family, and others to accept them as they are. If you are a homosexual, it’s up to you to decide whether to tell, when and who to tell.
√ Sometimes it takes courage to tell another person that you are a lesbian or bisexual person.
√ This can be very relaxing. You don’t need to hide your feelings. First, talk to people you trust and who you know will accept you for who you are.
√ People can behave differently when you tell them that you are gay or bisexual. Many people act positively or naturally, but some can act negatively because they don’t accept gay people. However, no one in Norway has the right to treat you badly or to be discriminated against because of it.
