Hi JC, and thanks for posting here.
You sound quire despondent but you need to remind yourself of two things.
Firstly, there's nothing 'wrong' or depressing about being gay or lesbian. Nothing at all. What sometimes makes being gay or lesbian difficult is the prejudiced, biased heterosexist world we live in. Many elements of society cannot accommodate any diversity in terms of sexual orientation and society discriminates against people on many levels. We'd all be doing a lot better if society allowed us to.
Secondly, you can't judge the state of Gayville by what you read on our forum - people who post here are often experiencing a level of difficulty or a particular problem in their lives and we're here to offer support and hopefully some advice or a few suggestions on how to overcome problems. By the same token, posts on the Cybershrink forum are not representative of everyone living in Straightville.
Interesting that you say there are no 'pros' to being gay or lesbian - which negates the argument by straights that we somehow 'choose' to be gay.
