I believe AIDS was first found in a gay airline flight attendant that had sex all over the world as he flew around for work.

I just think it's a shame that something so beautiful and natural as being gay would lead to such a deadly disease. It's almost as though nature was trying to say, "I can't bear to see such a beautiful and natural thing go on in the world."

Makes sense right?

Thats what some religions would lead you to believe. That and even maasterbation is wrong. My teachers in school used to tell us not to masterbate, to read or walk instead, lol. They believe that any spooge spilled is a waste of life, lol.The thing is, when you don't ejaculate, your sperm can go "bad".

Kids grow up inundated with messages about sex. From the Internet to the TV to the playground, they're seeing and hearing more about sex than ever before.
And then there's the classroom, where many middle school children get their first formal lesson on sex. Sex education in schools has sparked controversy since its inception: How should it be taught? What should be taught? Now, there's a new question: Should sexual orientation be part of a sex-ed curriculum?


abcnews.go.com...

Happy?




"I think that, given that some of these children sitting in these classrooms are going to grow up to be gay, I think that schools do have a responsibly to try and help those kids come to terms with themselves and their sexual orientation," he said.

Rape has a number of motivating factors behind it; I beleive you are right that deriving a sense of dominance is the most common motivation behind rape.

But what is the motivation behind consensual gay sex?

I know there is no reasoning with people of this mindset who call them disgusting and not equal as humans. It's just really sad that even in this day and age that people still hold these type of feelings towards our fellow brothers and sisters. I had the hopes creating an account and coming into this thread i would find these people are just trolls but sadly i'm coming to realize this is not the case..

If homosexuality were natural/normal either men would have a uterus, or women would have been removed from the foodchain by force long ago.

Heterosexuality is normal, to suggest otherwise is just foolish.

Yeah ok they want to help gay kids realize they are wrong. Ha you realize how wrong that is right? Kids should be informed on the gay community because im sorry but they exist get over it
It's not like they are showing gay pornos in school bro you are blowing that way up. As for tv that is the parents responsibility obviously.

I am probably too tolerant though; I don't fault people for their emotional response. They don't choose to be disgusted by gay people anymore than I choose to be disgusted by all sorts of things.

I have often wondered about the idea of free will. Are we controlled by our chemistry and environment? Or can we operate outside of these influences... To put it in an over simplification...

Free will, much like dry land, is largely a myth. It is not non-existent, but most people will never reach its shores.

You said that homosexuality is unnatural.

tothetenthpower showed that homosexuality exists in nature and hence, is natural.

You changed your position and said that what you really meant was that, because homosexual intercourse cannot lead to reproduction, it is not normal.

What, exactly, does normal mean to you? Does it mean "the most common practice"? Is it a code-word for "natural"?

If you mean that homosexuality is not the most common practice, then you're not really saying anything of substance, whatsoever. It being less common than same-sex coupling does not make it bad, or wrong, or undesirable. If you mean that homosexuality is not a natural practice, then we are back to square one; it is natural, there are natural desires that lead to it, and it is no less natural than heterosexual sex.


I really don't understand what you mean by normal. "If homosexuality was natural/normal [apparently they are interchangeable terms to you] then men would have a uterus"? So, does reproduction define what is normal, yes or no? You never answered my question.

Why doesn't someone start a thread saying "Be straight all you want, just hush up about it".

These anti-gay conserva-idiots don't seem to see the hypocrisy in their statements...and I'm more than willing to put money on it, that all these threads were started by said straight, bible-thumping conservapedia reading ignoramuses. In fact, I don't see any threads on here started by a gay person saying "Weee! I'm Gay! In Your FACE!". You people are saying "don't wave it in our face" and "hush up about it"...yeah well I can point out thousands of posts and threads here where people talk about being straight, talking about their relationships with their spouses or girl/boyfriends and no one is telling you to "hush up about it" or "stop waving it in everyone's faces". Gay people don't tell you to "hush up about it" when we turn on the TV and see nothing but straight couples and straight people having sex. Gay people don't tell you to "hush up about it" when straight people are holding hands/kissing/making out in public. No, you know why? This is a free country and people have the right to do what they want between 2 consenting adults. I can't believe that you people can't see the blatant hypocrisy in they types of things you've been saying about gay people. Every day I sign on here there's a new thread, started by a straight person, as if it's their business...and then they tell gay people to "hush up about it". Hypocrites!

All people demand is that they are treated with respect and don't have to deal with your bigotry and ignorance all day. It's not other people's job to educate you and teach you how to show respect for you fellow humans...So don't be so surprised when people stand up for themselves against your ignorance. I've already posted 15+ links and SCIENTIFIC facts to sources citing homosexuality as natural, as occurring in nature, as being WIDESPREAD in the animal kingdom, as being evolutionary advantageous, and including many species which whom the majority (75-98%) practice homosexual sex. So I'm not having any arguments with no flat-earthers here giving me their "proof" that it's "abnormal" "unnatural" blah blah because a magical man in the sky "tells them so". You wonder why people laugh at creationists. So get over your ignorance and bigotry. Go READ SOME BOOKS. If you people had been alive a generation ago, you would have been the same people harping on about how the "negro" isn't a full human and doesn't deserve rights, and about how women need to stay in the kitchen and just shut up and also doesn't deserve rights. And just to show you how you are in a minority with your "opinions". Public support of legalization of “homosexual relations between consenting adults” has risen...to 59%. and 75% between adults 18-35 years of age. (Source) So THE MAJORITY SUPPORT IT. You are behind the times, and will get washed away by the tides soon enough. Much like the WASPS of an earlier generation, I can't wait until history looks back at people like you and think "how backwards and ignorant they were"...history won't be treating you people kindly...and that's a good thing, as many of the sad tragic events in human history that were merely the result of human ignorance, are not something that should be repeated. ever.

I don't agree with your use of natural and normal being interchangeable.

Normal means something that is common. Homosexuality is not normal in the sense that statistically a small number of people identify as being homosexual.

Natural though is a word with all sorts of meanings. What does natural mean to you?

In mice populations, when they become over poopulated there is a rise in homosexual activity. I think this is because to thrive, mammals need not only proper nutrition (food water) but emotional security, and sharing a physical bond with another being is part of that. Sex and relationships are not solely about reproduction even in other species of the animal kingdom. And let us not ignore the homosexual population of plants.

I have no problem with people who are intolerant towards gays i just don't understand the mindset stop shoving it in our faces..If the gay community where treated as equal human beings and had the same rights there would be no need to shove anything in anyones face. This whole thread for the most part is based on an argument that they knew would go no where and would be openly used to just bash gay people and their lifestyle that my friend is sad in my opinion.

No, They do not want kids to know gay people exist until the children are old enough to make their own decisions. One of the interviewees was scared that some of the children being educated about being gay might end up thinking they are gay....Well something like that, I guess you understand where I'm going.

I bet you paint a pretty picture of Muslims, Jews and Chinese as well? Just asking.....I'm not against any of them.

This argument seems to forget that Homosexuals are part of a larger family and society. You see there is a really big problem we have and it stems from the fact that not all reproductive pairings in our species are able to raise their children. Parents die or are just -fail-. This is natural, it just happens, I don't call it unnatural. However nature has also provided a home for these children by creating non reproductive-yet still family oriented- members of a species to exist (also applys to infertile heteros). Additionally even if the Homosexuals don't adopt they still have the children of their own family (Nieces, Nephews) to whom they contribute resources to their survival (money, time, etc.)

Once we step out of the outmoded and narrow 'well they can't make babies" argument you can see that Homosexuals could and should be playing a very important role in the survival of our species. Its ashame we have to waste that potential because of outmoded ways of thinking.

If a system consistently produces what you call unnatural, than its natural.

Because -god forbid- they might try a same-sex relationship and they might like it! We can't have that, now, can we?

And we shouldn't confuse straight children! As we all know, children will do anything to fit in, even if it means having gay sex because of peer pressure! This problem is totally nonexistent for heterosexual children, who are never pressured into any uncomfortable sexual situations and are never confused about their sexuality.

i am winking as hard as i can

I believe all sexual orentations are normal. If you're gay, you're gay. If you're staight, your straight. Just don't push it on others. Like you said it should be a non-issue. But until the government butts out...no pun intended...it will be a problem for the gay man or woman. They don't have to make laws about it. But they let their personal feelings get in the way of their duties which is to serve their electorates. Not to descide if a certain group of their electorates have a right to mary or not...that's just ignorant and inconsiderate. Oh! By the way; to all love birds out there. Stop being so demonstrative and get a room
just kidding.
