    Sorry, it doesn't work that way. You want to change the law, you must support your position to change it. You can't yet you want everyone else to be forced to accept your opinion in law.

    Certainly not, and I fail to see the relevance of this tack.
    No one here (or anyone else, for that matter) has yet been able to prove that either homosexuality or homosexuality are (or are not) "genetic".

    Neither is fundamentalist Christianity or Buddhism, but we're still not allowed to discriminate against those segments of our population.

    The genetics thing is a red herring, to distract from the fact that Texmaster has no case. He is the only one to bring it up in this thread, along with Hitler, and I think he is the only one to bring up pedophilia into this thread. None of it is at all relevant to the question of the school boards actions.

    I failed to see any point. It was stated that heterosexuals force us to accept them and you stated something about it being genetic. So... what WAS the point, exactly? What does genetics have to do with them forcing me to accept them by way of being forced to witness their PDAs?

    Actually, the evidence indicates that homosexuality is epigenic, not genetic. During fetal development, as the brain is developing it can be influence by hormones and antibodies that alter its structure. There is strong statistical evidence that for every older brother a man has, the more likely they are to be gay. Furthermore, the female siblings of gay men are shown to have higher fertility rates. Finally, a recent study demonstrated that gay men are likely to invest great emotional and financial support into their nieces and nephews. All this evidence together supports the "gay uncle" theory of homosexuality, which argues that homosexuality is supported evolutionarily by gay men supporting the genes of their siblings (via protecting and nurturing their sibling's offspring) and that the cut off exists as a sort of population control whereby one set of genes will not dominate a tribe.

    I have seen studies that seem to indicate birth order plays a role in sexual orientation.
    Eldest male children are rarely gay. Second or youngest male children are statistically more likely to be gay.
    I don't think these studies even examined the role of birth order in female homosexuality, and I'm not sure they prove anything; correlation doesn't equal causation.
    I'm especially not sure they point to an epigenetic root cause; the cause could as easily be purely cultural/environmental.

    Not that any of that has anything to do with the issue at hand, which is discrimination.

    The problem with the purely "cultural/environmental" argument is the fact that gay people emerge from just about every culture, including socially conservative, Christian homes. I saw enough homeless, gay kids in Utah to convince me that cultural explanations for homosexuality are far from sufficient.

    There is also evidence that homosexual orientation may be matrilinear, following the female line. My family is a statistic that supports it. It's far from conclusive, but there is such evidence, which I have linked before.

    Perhaps.
    Anecdotally speaking, it does seem like just about everybody I know has at least one gay uncle; a sort of "fairy godfather" they go to for money when their parents refuse their requests for loans.
