    Is it possible that some of these teens are not gay but that the women they have found so far are just not that desireable no matter how much make up they cake on their faces?

    No offense of course and I am not thinking of three years of dow jones coverage here. Just asking a serious questions.

    Why arnt scientist working on a cure for this illness and you can not deny it's an illness because it's not normal for the people of the same sex to be drawn together .

    FIRST, Michael Armstrong Sr. it is NOT an ILLNESS, let us not be so blinded to life's realities. After watching this and hearing the conviction in these teens voices how can you honestly sit there and say to yourself this is an ILLNESS.
    Gay people have it really hard here in the United States, trust me I am one of them. Everyday is a challenge, there is not a day in my life that something or someone doesn't remind me that being gay is "different," "bad, "wrong," or even an "illness." We all have many emotions and to be hated for being true to who we were born as is the saddest truth this world has to offer. I am not different, I am not wrong, I did not choose this, God handed it to me and everyone needs to understand that God is ok with this, he created it. I am living my life to the fullest, lending a helping hand whenever possible, caring for all Americans.

    It very interesting that you took that extra step to trash Chris Brown in your rhetoric. luckily the rest of the world doesn't share your judgmental self righteous views. And luckily Chris Brown understands that the White community is far more forgiving than any If I am correct didn't CNN just sign Elliot Spritzer lol. He will rise again he is great artist.
