Figured I’d post this separately because while another poster has asked “if identifying as transgender is a sin”, I don’t think the principles involved in transgenderism are quite the same. I’ve noticed many Catholics accept the idea of trans-genderism, including “trans” individuals who are sexually active with those who are anatomically the same gender, but still think that a “cis” homosexual individual who engages in same sex sexual acts with other “cis” homosexuals are sinning.
Anyway, to the main topic. I have in the past noticed that many CAF posters assume that anyone who states they are “homosexual” (or “gay”, “lesbian”, “Queer”), etc., that means they MUST be sexually active and/or is a supporter of the “Gay Agenda”. Even when posters have stated that they are chaste, it seems many people here seem to think that “if someone REALLY believed the Catholic teachings about this issue they wouldn’t even identify themselves as homosexual”.
So, is it actually a sin to identify as homosexual? Or as bisexual? I get a feeling some people think a “bisexual” should instead identify as a heterosexual who bears the cross of “Same Sex Attraction”?
I am not BTW talking about people whose identity as “homosexual” seems to dominate their self identity to the exclusion of other aspects such as religion, race, ethnicity, culture, etc. We could argue that is unhealthy. But it seems many Catholics (at least on CAF) frown on anyone who identifies as “homosexual” at all.
