Living in Rio, finding a women without a penis and/or HIV would be cool enough.
And what's about men?
Anyway, I shouldn't complain so much regarding my problems with finding the right man...
There are stats claiming that only 80% of the men in Rio are heterosexual.
Anything in English? Around here the percentage of LGBTIs is usually estimated to be maybe something like 5%.
Nothing I could find, but being more specific the stats are that 19,3% of men identify as gay or bisexual. This is too much even for Brazil, among researched cities Rio scored #1 and #2 had 10,8%.

Thanks. Just googled a Wikipedia reference and it seems that the proportions are different than around here also in that there are more gays than bis and more men than women Maybe I need to pay a visit to a local university's library to find some more reference.

Don't be fooled by percentage figures for gay and bi men. The number of men who have sex with other men is much higher. Many of the latter are married and/or don't consider themselves gay or bi because they do not assume the passive role in sex.

True, people have even started to use "MSM" (men who have sex with men) to have clearer figures, while some unresolved figures have forged labels like "g0y" or "highsexual".

I'm not but being a bit nerdy I'm also interested in how terms are defined around the World and what's the notions' historical background. Sexual orientation is not just about sex.

That's kind of amusing coming from a Dutch. You are so liberal that even your racists are gay.
This exchange made me chuckle to myself.  Probably in a gay manner.

I'm looking for a single Orthodox maiden to move with me to the jungle and lead a chaste life with 6-10 children for the glory of True Brazilian Orthodoxy. We can pretend it's the Scetes, Siberia or sth... PM me for details.

I'm not single but not married either. I guess I'll be restored to my wife in heaven. Marriage was hell but also full of poignancy. I wouldn't do it again but I am glad I risked it.

As for a forum of a members of a religion that supposedly cares much about families this board has a huge representation of men hating their former wives. So much for "protecting natural marriage".

Despite what you hear in sermons or books, when you look into what Christ was saying or lives of saints it seems family wasn't that important in early Christianity and other things were considered more important than that. Now it seems it is the main issue.

Celibacy.

Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do. But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.

I love my wife. She's an admirable girl. And it's still very personal -- I dream about her most nights.

It's possible I love her even more than you love trolling Orthodoxy.

The present distress, as St. Paul styled it, is simply inimical to marriage. This is not the fault of individual women and men. Savior, save us -- our children are in danger of growing up in a society where most people cannot even successfully live with themselves.

The gospel according to monkabees:

1. Regulating Cartesian theater movies given legitimacy by calling them logismoi
2. Married sex and child discipline
3. Saying the words modernism and secularism

Two. There were two. Unless most of us are sock puppets, I wouldn't classify that as a huge representation.

What does it mean for Chistianity to be about Christ? This seems circular or evasive.
And it seems rather opposed to the Gospel as declared by Paul to think that anything matters except for Christ.

As a tautology on a topic can fairly be mouthed by either side of a debate it does not further the debate but is rhetorical evasion. The question here is, What about children is not about Christ, and how?
