Check out the Lebanese Bloggers Forum, a blogging group of which I am a member. Apparently, one member objects to my blog on the grounds that it limits his freedom. Ludicrous.
Anyway, here is the response I posted to it:
Wow....not what I expected when I checked the blog today. I've only been blogging a month and I'm already a celebrity ;)
Ahmad, I'm sorry you feel that way, but I don't really understand your argument.
You say, "I am pro freedom of speech, yet this should not conflict with the freedom of others in terms of beliefs; freedom of someone is limited by the freedom of the others." I agree with this somewhat. People cannot have the freedom to kill because it inhibits the freedoms of others to live. People cannot have the freedom to scream fire in a movie theater because it inhibits the safety of others. But the freedom to have same-sex relations? Does that impede you from having heterosexual relations? If it does, I am sorry for your loss.
I don't believe that a gay identity should be kept private. "The closet", as they call it, is the reason gay people are in the predicament they are now - scorned, persecuted and rejected. Staying quiet continues the status quo; it is only by voicing our protest that we can change society for the better.
Furthermore, I am not naming names of the girls I've slept with. That would be a rather boring list. It would read:
That's not worth the creation of a blog.
