Did You Know...
This is true. Growing up, my uncle is gay but his brothers and my dad never treated him any different. He still went out hunting with them. He hung out with them like any other man. When I was in school, I was actually friends with a boy that was always with us girls and the other boys never gave him a hard time. When ever he got stuck with the boys, they treated him like one of the guys. It wasn't until I went to school off the reservation that I heard a boy calling another boy gay. And it hurt his feelings, being called that hurt his feelings. It's mainly religion that puts emphasis on gender roles. I have had many friends who are gay, lesbian, or what have you. They live their lives like anyone else does. Even now, throughout the Native American culture, you don't hear about someone getting beat up or even killed for being gay. I think it's terrible that religion can have that kind of negative impact on people. Men and women having been sleeping together since the beginning of time. Religion did not tame the chaos, it just added to the chaos and channeled it.

Holy cow!!! (sorry Brahma, and to the rest of you), I had *no clue* I had rambled on like that... *a thousand apologies* (or, "kiss my ass, don't read it then..." whichever you prefer... ) 😂

natives don't look at it like that anymore. those are extremely old ways. most are Christians now days and know that their ancestors were wrong - from a true blooded Cherokee Native

@ToniEliseHolden I have to disagree. They weren't wrong and they still believe today. Yes most are Christan but that don't hold them back from throwing their children out the door just because they are gay. I know plenty of Natives that are Christian, or Catholic, that don't let those white beliefs hinder their Native beliefs AND heritage. So for you to say Natives don't look at it like that anymore, is extremely wrong.
