    Ah, so you are using the normal/deviant scale in mathematical terms. Kinda like lefthandedness or being Jewish in the US would be deviant, right?

    Great post by the way, too bad you wasted it on on someone who will never aknowledge it
    I know I am probably wasting my time, but I am pretty stubborn and can't help myself sometimes.

    Thank you for the compliment. I am just trying to be honest and wish more people could actually see things my way. I guess though that this is how many people feel, even those who are on the other side.

    Well, societal norms define what is acceptable in society, and you are correct... that changes over time. I believe that Walter is using the terms in a mathematical sense.

    I'm kinda shocked that this failed in my home state. Maryland is fairly liberal.

    I don't think he's saying that it's what the majority of society does that's the norm, it's what the majority approves of. For instance, a majority males in this country probably don't masturbate with their left hand. But the vast majority of males probably don't have a problem with other guys using their left hand.

    Well, let's let him answer and indicate what he means. If he's talking math, then he's correct... as are my examples. If he's talking approval, I'd like to see some numbers, firstly, and secondly, I'd challenge the relevancy of approval.

    So the majority of peoples in Society are watching queer eye for the straight guy? And this conclusion in spite of the fact that over 40 states have laws ( a reflection of their morality) on the books that condemns the perversion for what it is. Keep trying to tell people that up is down and black is what, white? it seems to go well with the round peg, square hole theory. You simply cannot force your twisted sense of morality upon people.....regardless of how much you attempt to deceive people...even yourself. If what you are saying is TRUE....why did California, the most LIBERAL STATE in the union just amend their constitution to defend traditional marriage? The facts simply do not mesh with your spinning lies.

    As I said....you live in a nation where you are free to engage in what ever activity you wish as long as you do not infringe upon another's privacy...when you go public, you are no longer protected by that personal sphere of privacy. In other words, Don't piss down my back and tell me to relax...ITS ONLY RAIN. I am just as FREE to exercise my Morality as you are to exercise your IMMORALITY....according to the 1st amendment, I am free to tell you as much IF I SO CHOOSE...and I do.

    So let me ask you a base question.

    What makes it a perversion?
