What gives anyone the right to pick and choose which animal behaviors are acceptable and which aren’t. If someone can use homosexuality in animals to justify homosexuality in humans, who is to say what other animal behavirs we can use to justify our actions.
Besides, homosexuality does not exist in the animal kingdom. By definition homosexuality refers to humans only.
Whose laws are they breaking that they feel the need to justify anything?
So why do some feel the need to justify homosexuality by comparing animal behavior to human behavior?
No, this is the old “why do you feel it is necessary to justify anything if you are ok with it?”
This kind of behavior among animals has been observed by scientists as far back as the 1700's
Janet Mann, a professor of biology and psychology at Georgetown University, who has studied same-sex behavior in dolphin calves, their homosexuality "is about bond formation," she said, "not about being sexual for life."
She said that studies showed that adult male dolphins formed long-term alliances, sometimes in large groups. As adults, they cooperate to entice a single female and keep other males from her. Sometimes they share the female, or they may cooperate to help one male. "Male-male cooperation is extremely important," Ms. Mann said. The homosexual behavior of the young calves "could be practicing" for that later, crucial adult period, she added.
Silo and Roy are, to anthropomorphize a bit, gay penguins. When offered female companionship, they have adamantly refused it. And the females aren't interested in them, either.

I believe that by your reasoning, and those who agree with you, then sex for pleasure is not natural and should not be done.
Are you really saying we should only have sex for reproduction? Or are you saying that since we're humans, and are therefore mentally superior to animals, we can chose to have sex for pleasure, with anyone we want, and it is perfectly natural?

If you straight people think homosexuality is a choice then why don't you choose to be gay for a year? Be so convincing that you could have a relationship with a gay person and they would never know.
Come on i want to see this, cause after all it is just a choice right? After a year you could go back to your "normal" straight life and no one would be the wiser. Well, you might since you get to see how the other side lives.
Most anyone has the ability to be a homosexual point is some of us CHOOSE not to. We are human and have human desires, it is normal to be attracted to the same sex as well as the opposite sex, if someone says they have never found someone of the same sex arousing then they are lying period.
But homosexaulity is wrong, it is not natural and it is an abomination period.
elementery my dear Watson.
