I have a theory when it comes to homosexuality among humans. I will not say all but a vey large percentage are victims of some kind of molestation or trauma that after years untreated, certain behavior patterns start to develop.
Three things that really bother me about gay people especially males.
1. Flamboyance is my biggest pet peave in gay males ( I refuse to call them men)
Stop trying to act like a woman.
2. Since when was it ok for these dudes to be running women's fashion and who gave them the right to implement this anorexic standard of beauty where in mainstream society a women is not pretty unless she is skinny.
3. Stop following me in the grocery store I'm handsome ok I get it. But I am not gay or even curious for that matter I like the things women have to offer too much to even consider it.
I would say go read the story about Sodom and Gomorrah. I'm not judging Gays that is in between you and God when you die. Just leave me alone.

Are you serious, or are you just splitting hairs for the fun of it?
9/10 times (and I'm being gracious) desire precedes the act of penile penetration into the vagina. In an evolutionary sense: DESIRE is what makes the process so successful.
In any case, I feel like we've left what we were initially talking about. I said homosexuals couldn't procreate; you said they could; I clarified my position by pointing out that I meant it in a wider evolutionary sense: that desire leads to procreation. That what we call procreation is actually a process - beginning with sexual desire, and ending in the birth of a child. You point out that actually, it is "sexual congress" which leads to procreation.
Now I respond: that is a fatuous reductionism. I have heard far better reductionisms than that, but this one takes the cake. It's like seeing a car accident, and saying "see, a car accident". "What caused it" someone asks. A car hit another car: a car accident". "Yes, I see that. But preceded the accident? What set of circumstances led to these two cars hitting each other". "It doesn't matter, it's a car accident".
There's a denseness to that position that simply makes no sense. Yes, a man can rape a woman. But a man only rapes a woman because of his desire to have sex with her.

I don't know how long you were following the forums before joining but I am sure you are aware of the tactics of trolling.
They cannot come up with a logical argument and so resort to emotional impulses. This usually includes a seemingly baffling changing of topics or absurd comparisons made in order to make you appear to others as you do to their offended mind.
What they want is for you to not only accept that someone can be gay but to also support and embrace everything associated with it. That means there is no disagreeing or else you become an outcast bigot for ostracizing the group.
It is a complicated issue.

Homosexuality is an emotion, an romantic attraction, a free minded choice in being you. If it was natural then, I must be an alien.

If you look at the pre-Abrahamic cultures of the ancient world, homosexuality was not only acceptable but widely practiced.
Ummmm….I hate to be Captain Obvious BUT I must point out that those cultures have all disappeared!!!
Thanks for proving my point.
What do you mean "if you want to be gay"? So, you believe
its a choice? If that is the case, how ignorant!
