    The whole normal argument is pointless, whether or not you think it's normal or not, doesn't mean that is enough reason to deny LGBT equal protection. Not being normal, isn't due process.

    Normal.
    Natural.
    Biological.
    etc.

    All of these are pointless when discussing the morality of homosexuality.

    Unless you are mac, and you have a special definition which you refuse to share with anyone.

    By nature? Who didn't see that one coming?

    Morally I fail to see how homosexuality could be a moral, or immoral thing. I mean, it's just an attraction to the same sex, your not harming anyone. I don't see homosexuality in the moral/immoral dichotomy, it's just a state of being.

    Until you act on it at least. But then again, the behavior of homosexuality alone doesn't really hurt anyone so unless you have a different value by which you are measuring, such as Biblical spiritual purity, then you probably wouldn't see that as wrong either.

    Really, that's what you got out of that statement?

    What that means is that simply because it is now abnormal, it being abnormal doesn't dictate that it will one day be normal.

    I fail to see how putting ur dick in another dude's butthole, or licking another girl's nipple or clit is inherently wrong or immoral. If anything gay dudes have a much higher pain tolerance level the us straights. I wouldn't let anyone near my ass.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It's pointless to both sides. Whether it's normal or not doesn't help either side get over the disagreement.

    There are a lot of taboos placed on sex by our species. Because homosexuality has historically, with few exceptions, been taboo it has become ingrained into our morality as an immoral act.
