    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    maybe. Do you dominate them?

    But again why have the relationship that you are going to model after male female roles in the first place?
    As much as I hate the term for it's mealy mouthed academic PC reputation. . . you're seeing it from a heteronormative point of view -- that basic male/female dichotomy. This pattern of aggressive/retiring is in ALOT of relationships... I'm sure theres a more dominant person in your circle of friends, a pecking order. This is common in single sex environments as well as co-ed situations.

    But once you throw in sex, people go to what they know in viewing what they don't understand.

    No.

    Not all straight guys are alike. Some guys are going to be traditional. Some aren't. I've been all over the map as to the type of partner I turn out to be: I've been the June Cleaver, and I've been the tomboy and everywhere in between. I don't dominate.

    but they let you take control right. Maybe you dominate and you dont know it?

    I think everyone knows I have a gay sister - & that I love both her and her partner dearly. But I still have trouble believing this line of thinking. I am not willing to state definitively either side of this argument, but I struggle believing that it is entirely a nature thing in the nature/nurture argument.

    Have you ever really discussed it with her? Just curious.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I think that for some people, it is a totally nature thing to be gay. One of the younger guys who used to work at my office has known he was gay since he was 10 or so. His parents didn't encourage it, he wasn't abused as a kid, and that is just who he is. My BIL's sister has been pretty sure she was gay since she was pretty young.

    Where I question the nature aspect is when that person was sexually abused as a child. I'm not saying that sexually abusing children makes them gay as adults, but to deny that it could be a factor in determining a client's sexual orientation is providing them with politically correct counseling that may not meet their overall needs.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
