Sorry, your error here is clear and colossal, your misunderstanding quite massive in fact.
    You still don't understand. There is nothing reproductive or procreative about the homo- or hetero-sexual orientations. There is something procreative about the heterosexual behavior. Got it yet?



    But it is the result of heterosexual behavior huh? Every single member involved in this argument...was conceived from a heterosexual act....yes or no?
    Heterosexual behavior? For the most part, that is accurate. This has nothing to do with the argument you are presenting, however. That is what you are missing.



    And one's homosexual behavior cannot reproduce.
    Correct. Notice, however, you used the word "behavior". This has nothing to do with orientation.

    Shall we count how many times this has been explained to him? His refusal to acknowledge it is, to me, deliberate, since it destroys his argument.

    And I think the behavioral traits I'm talking about are different than the one's you're talking about. Also, it depends on how 'hard'-wired a trait is.

    Take low-impulse control; a personality trait common with criminals. Are they all the same? Can this be changed? Well, see a movie called Clockwork Orange and get back to me.

    Can a emotionally sensitive person become more or less based on environment. Of course. But, how much more or less will depend on their hard-wired (birth) starting point.
    If you're trying to make a new argument w/ respect to "a homosexual can not be rewired for opposite sex attraction," please be more explicit.

    With the above post, you seem to be saying "there are a lot of brain functions that aren't so plastic," but that much is obvious and supported by the info I posted.

    There's no data to substantiate the conclusion you'd like to make. At best, you can make a claim that "it's unlikely that a homosexual can be rewired for opposite sex attraction..." but the stronger conclusion is simply not supported by the facts.

    Define what you mean by "rewired".

    Also, please explain (in layman's terms) how what I stated about foot fetishes was incorrect. Are you saying that people with a foot fetish, through some organic process, had their brain rewired to feel that type of sensation in their feet and that it is not caused nerves that overlap or somehow became tangled.

    Blowing Grandfather Rock? (That's something a North Carolinian would get)

    I have never understood how that mountain is supposed to look like a grandfather.

    But the swinging bridge almost made me lose my lunch the first time I walked across it.

    One time I and a couple of friends walked up the big cable to the top of the Brooklyn Bridge.



    I bet you would have yuked it up but enjoyed the view once you got up there

    it did at one point, but I think just recently the 'nose' fell off it so it looks like...well...not like a grandfather.

    I'm not really afraid of heights and I think I could handle that cuz its an incline and you can shimmy on all fours if you need to.

    That bridge was a mile high, people behind you, people in front of you and the wind making it shake. That was some horrible **** to endure.

    And I was baked out of my mind.
