As has been pointed out, homosexuality is not disadvantageous to the perpetuation of the species (which is the actual point of existence, not individual reproduction).You are being willfully ignorant. Everyone here knows how babies are made. Being disadvantageous toward passing on one's genes =/= something not being genetic.
Many researchers believe, as has been pointed out earlier in this thread, that gays, as nonprocreative adults, served a specific purpose in prehistoric times: they helped raise and support their siblings' families, or the children of other members of their tribe.
This would've been crucial to the continued existence of a community, back in the days when so many people died at a young age and left their children orphaned.
I believe texmaster is being willfully obtuse.
By the way, the spell-check on this forum has a few bugs.
It indicates that the word "wilfully" is a misspelling, when it isn't; it's actually a valid alternative spelling:
wilfully - definition of wilfully by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
wilful - definition of wilful by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

You know I have to ask this, why is the argument always made that since the anti-gay crowd thinks that homosexuality is a choice, and not something they are born as, then it is automatically not protected as a civil right? I constantly hear this argument, "it's a choice so it shouldn't be considered the same argument as race".
I can name something else that is a choice. Religion. That tells me that it doesn't matter if they were born that way or if they are choosing to be that way. Its in the same protections as race and is a choice.
So how's this argument for you? Should it be okay for a public school to ban couples of different religious beliefs from going to prom together? It's not like their religious beliefs would be really violated, especially considering there are several religions that consider it wrong to date someone not of your faith.

Mace Windu: Then our worst fears have been realized. We must move quickly if the Jedi Order is to survive.
We should not limit someone's freedom to express love towards another (so long as it is decent, I am not advocating public sex) and cancel the whole prom because of a lesbian couple. I don't support gay marriage or the homosexual agenda, but it's going to far to close a prom because of a lesbian couple and ruin it for everyone. Even though I think homosexuality is wrong I think people's rights should be protected. If someone chooses to be gay they shouldn't have people forcing them against that. Now I'm not for extending marriage benefits to homosexual couples, but I also don't believe in oppressing them or telling others who they can and can't have a relationship with. It's not my place and what this school did was wrong. Not only on the part of discrimination, but also publicly humiliating a lesbian couple and placing the blame on them for a canceled prom when really it's the high school that has the problem. You can be against the homosexual agenda without being against homosexual people.

Clearly, they're "men's pants". They have a slit in the front, lol.
Other than that, I wear Levis. I think all the jeans I have currently are women's, but I've gotten boys' Levis before because they were cheaper, and I don't see much of a difference. I'm built more like a boy anyway: no hips, no butt, not much of a waist indention.
Women's pants tend to fit me ridiculously: tight in the waist, so baggy in the butt it looks like I've got a gigantic saggy balloon back there. Levis seems to be about the only jeans manufacturer that doesn't assume all women have an hourglass figure.
I don't know what that dude was talking about, saying men's pants and jackets don't fit women. They come in all sizes.
The school's more likely to send kids home if their clothes are too tight, than if they're too baggy.
It was very punitive of the school to handle it the way they did. They speak of distracting from the learning process, well, I don't see that they helped in that the girl in question has been told to her face that SHE ruined their senior year. Very shameful on the part of the school and their district.
