We are Spiritists. We follow Spiritism coded by Allan Kardec.
It cools us down and teaches us how to live better with ourselves and with the world.
Who is spiritist must have heard many times people saying "Oh, gay men were women in their past lives". Or, "... it is a female soul trapped in a man's body...". COME ON!...
Dammit Spiritists! What about Bears?
It is a spiritist hobby (actually, "self-spiritists", ok?) to explain it all thoroughly. Who reads Kardec knows it doesn't go like that.
We are not women, we don't act like women, we are not effeminate, we don't like dolls, dresses or lipsticks. We are men and we like men.
I make jokes saying that if I liked sissies, I would just make out it with women! (Prejudice Mode: ON)
I believe that sexuality is much more complex than labeling and conditioning the gender with the sexual orientation.
Although it's true that when we see some effeminate guy skipping in the street, listening to Justin Bieber, we just think: That "Queer" was Lady Di in previous lives! But HELLO, "self-spiritists"! Do you even know the meaning of the rainbow flag? The colors mean that within ourselves we are very different. Each color has its palette!
So, "self-spiritist", hit the F5 button (refresh, in a good English) and don't tell me I was a woman in my previous life, unless she was the Queen of Sheba or Marilyn Monroe!
That's another story!
Note: Those who read Allan Kardec know it's not actually like that. What we want to comment about here are the books called "spiritualists" which, in our view, mistakenly address the issue of homosexuality.
