    A male friend of mine hitch hiked a ride home from a gay dude. Dude kissed him unexpectedly and my friend had to chin check him. He came home angry and almost in tears, I almost crapped myself laughing inside.

    I see you don't have anything to say about the actual topic and would really just prefer to insult me personally. Excellent.

    I couldn't resist, you just put it all out there. Besides, don't you think these elaborate plots of yours are a little flaky? Are groups of people really this organized and sinister? Don't you think its probably more simple like they just want to have equal rights and be treated like everyone else?

    It reminds me of something I heard about homophobia, which is that it's essentially a man's fear of being on the business end of the treatment he regularly doles out to women.

    It was a nice diversionary tactic. Try to make the discussion about me, personally, instead of the issue. Do you have any more personal remarks to make or can the discussion get back on topic?

    The simple answer, for me, is if it's natural it's normal, period. If someone alters, chemically or cosmetically, who they naturally are, then that would likely be abnormal, at least to me. Otherwise, one of the beautiful things about nature is its unexplained mystery.

    It's not about elaborate plots. It's about ulterior motives.

    I don't want to get into a scientific discussion - I don't have the expertise - but what's to say that homosexuality isn't a form of natural selection, in all species, or a form of population control, in all species. As I said above, if something appears naturally, it's normal to me.

    You are exactly right. To argue that an example of anything that occurs in nature is normal no matter how rare, unusual or bizarre it is means that the word "normal" is just wasting space in a dictionary and is nothing but white noise when used in a sentence.
