    wrongo and a stupid pointless line of argument.

    by the standard definition, homosexuality is not normal. only a very small % of the population is homosexual, therefore homosexuality is definitely outside of the "norm" and is therefore not normal.

    So have all sorts of deformities. The folks so afflicted can also live as healthy, functional, and happy individuals. You have to play semantics to call it a normal behavior.

    Mathematically that is true. But only a small percentage of the population is a genius. Nothing wrong with being a genius. The percentage argument is kind of senseless and irrelevant.

    As I said. Petty semantics.

    I posted this earlier but I have to ask in all sincerity. Why argue the point of whether or not it is normal? How is it relevant? Sorry if that's a stupid question.

    I don't have a problem with it, just said it wasn't natural and normal as others are trying to falsely assert. And btw, the missionary position probably isn't the gold standard for either natural or normal.

    Nah. It is common and universal. But if it makes you feel better about yourself to call it abnormal then feel free. I won't trample on your attempts to assert superiority. And what do you have against people with deformities? You just do not seem to like anyone who is not exactly like you.

    I just don't think that whether or not it is normal is even relevant.

    When all other arguments are used up you argue about language. It is evidence of the absurdity that those who oppose gay rights have been reduced to when all they have left is to quibble over is words that have multiple meanings.

    My perspective on it was exactly that. A desperate attempt by people who are unable to tolerate it to make it "weird". Thanks
