Third Sex...

In loving someone does it have to be the opposite sex? What if we learn to love the same sex? Is it bad?

Through the years and as I grew a little bit older and maturer. I realized that a lot of us including you and me wonder how to explain to a child what third sex is.

I for once would love to explain it to my kids the right way and using the right words. I got friends who are gay and lesbian as well. They got their own lives going and yes some of them got kids from previous relationship which didn't turn out good.

So here is my daughter asking me what do they call them Uncle or Auntie, Kuya or Ate, or Tita or Tito. I was left speechless but my friends answer that for me and said just call them by their biological sex given.

But some of us would just crunch and hate to be in the same room with the third sex, why? They are still human with just a different DNA from the rest of us. They can do a lot of things like each one of us also. They can be a very good friend but not a good enemy. (since when an enemy becomes good.) They can be your hairdresser and manicurist and they will surely treat you well. They can be your sister and brother as well.(rolled into one.) They can be your designer and They can do all these sort of things that a woman and a man do.

It's just that they are born with a different level kick from the rest of the human race. Some might be so annoying and some are just quite and doing their daily lives normally like anyone of us.

They are just a different from all of us and that what sets them differently from the rest of the human race. They are special and so are the rest of us. Treat them with respect and STOP the gay and lesbian bashing.

You hate them because why? That they are better than you or what's your reason.

i am open-minded to third sex. i have lesbian friends.

you can say to your child that gays are male who prefers to be a female. same with lesbian.

when i was a kid i used to be amazed by gays and lesbians. i found it funny, too. i even told myself that i would like a lesbian when i grew up so boys will stay out of my life...hehe...but now, although i am a little boyish, i can say that i am straight.

isn't it politically incorrect to label them as "third sex"? because if there is the third sex, which is the first or the second? well, all labels are politically incorrect.

Politically incorrect, nah! I do not think so kasi if they do want to be labeled as "third sex" then why are people calling them that or "gay", "lesbian" or "tibo" "berde ang dugo"...

The first and second sex are female and male or male and female kasi yan lang naman talaga ang known sex nang isang tao di ba...

POV ko lang... =)

Hindi naman siguro politically incorrect dahil sila mismo ang naglagay or gumawa nang mga "lingo" na yan at ginaya na lang natin. At kung hindi man sila eh sino?

Siguro nga ang first at second sex ay ang male and female or female and male....

What's important is that we respect them as who they are and what they are... ganun lang.... =)
