Now this is an internal contradiction in terms, and also sloppy problem solving. Way to go, Miss_S. What was happening was I was trying to look out for the interests of myself and that of a friend of mine at the same time, and I did not realize that these intentions were contradictory, because I hated myself for my own intentions. deep breath
Them being the LGTBQIA community. Which makes me rather selfish, I'll admit. I'll also admit to defending a group of guys, because I'm a heteroromantic asexual and, as I've previously explained, I like guys. facepalm My previous point about the double standard was probably accurate, but it was also, er, motivated by the heteroromantic part of myself turning on a bit where it should not have. I am quite sorry for that. It seems that I got out of control. Thus, I being just me, would be 100% totally behind opening the discussion.
The reasons behind why I want it open are ugly though, in my opinion, just looking at it on my screen. I'm an adult and I have no right to open the discussion just to entreat acceptance for a part of myself that isn't even relevant to this forum's purpose. It's also weird to swap the authority of the Word of God and "this is wrong" for "I am part of the community and my orientation is accepted by Scripture but homosexuality isn't acceptable and if you advocate for tolerance for them you go against Scirpture and overvalue sexual attraction, which I go without every day, thus devaluing Scripture and my own existence at the same time?" It makes everything needlessly personal. I write essays.
However, my friend, whose name is @Jessie_Dearsnap, wants to close the discussion. And what happened was she took advantage of my unease about my own position here to give me a lot of data to support her own position. So I tried to support both of our positions at the same time because I hated myself for being selfish and for having the orientation in the first place. So I went back and forth between these positions because of my emotions, and that is not good debate practice. Thank you for calling me on it.
It is, technically possible, that having information here about asexuality could be the same as homosexuality. If you have you have it and you don't know you have it, you can get really confused and suffer as a result. I have been incredibly baffled at myself over the years. The opposite, though, thinking that you are an ace when you are not, can also get you in trouble heh, because you discount the sexual attractions you are feeling in denial, and that creates an internal contradiction that leads to more incoherent discussion posts. Most asexuals can simply follow 1 Corinthians 7 and not get married, and the heteroromantic ones can get married if they want. God isn't mad at them for all that.
With that being said, all of the books I read for sexual control where written for heteroromantic heterosexual folks. No advice was given on how to control this strange orientation that it is. But it does need to be controlled. I have seen it do some pretty weird stuff in the past. And then people don't get it and hate me for it. It's easy to internalize that hate. But the hate is unscriptural.
I'm not going to ask you to accept this, because I have trouble accepting it in myself. But I hope you understand that it affects how I discuss homosexuality. That's it.
