    By your definition you just told a lie. Bonobos are chimps. They are also our closest living genetic hominid relative.

    And yes, you do see homosexual behavior in the common chimp.

    Most believe that they use sex as a way of diffusing tension and avoiding confrontation.
    Concur.

    Also, I am merely pointing out why your claim that homosexuality is unnatural is blatantly false.
    I don't see how anything you've said does that. Prove it "blatantly false" that is. What it's done is show me how you could have a differing opinion.

    This combined with your argument that is not "normal" (which was pretty much disproved with the point of left-handedness) leaves you without any real basis for your reasoning.
    That's not true. What it leaves me with is a basis you disagree with.

    Bonobos are a sub-species that differs from the main species. Saying Chimp means chimpanzee, saying bonobo means bonobo.

    What is "homosexual-like" about same sex masturbation, oral sex, and anal sex?

    Freedom works the other way around, dude. You have to justify denying a right, not granting it.
