    So LGBT people don't deserve equal protection. Atleast your honest about wanting to oppress a section of American citizens.

    I don't. Many have that view freely, many don't. But I would remind you, disneydude....that I was asked for my view. Don't be so arrogant to insinuate that I am trying to force my views on anyone. I'm simple stating what they are....as I was asked to do.

    I would correct you and say that the general consensus is that it may be any combination of the factors you listed. From what I've read.

    Since he believes that homosexuality is a choice, he doesn't see it as oppresive to treat it like any other "behavior" people engage in. I would guess that he doesn't consider it any more oppresive than banning drug use (although I might be wrong on that).

    Procreation and sexual orientation are two different things. Since we know that many gays want to procreate... and do, the biological component that you identified does not exist only in heterosexuals.

    So, with that in mind, I'll ask my question again: How is heterosexuality influenced by biology?

    All this intellectual gymnastics and verbosity over one dude wanting to do another dude in the butt as a married couple. These threads are so strange to me.

    Marriage was originally about having children. It is founded in classical religion. Without either, what's the point of getting married?

    As soon as a guy can get a guy pregnant, or a woman can get a woman pregnant, I'll perhaps begin to understand this fascination.

    So, with that in mind, I'll ask my question again: How is heterosexuality influenced by biology?
    I'm talking about how things would interact with our learning experiences that push us to heterosexuality...if it is a learned behavior. The urge to procreate, in my mind, would push someone towards a lifestyle that more easily supports that. Our species reproduces sexually...requiring a male and a female to do it.

    The sensations generated leading up to and during intercourse are designed to be stimulated by heterosexual, penis to vagina, intercourse. To stimulate these same sensations outside of normal intercourse, actions must be taken to "artificially" stimulate these areas. Sexual activities other than penis to vagina intercourse do this in manners I like to think of as varying from the norm. Such activities are normal out to a certain "range" and then become less or abnormal. (I fully understand that this last bit is my own theory)

    Also, the male and female body are designed to fit together for sexual reproduction. The male body is not designed to fit the male body for intercourse, likewise with females. In fact, the anus is the most dangerous place on the human body to "explore". The delicacy of the skin of the anus combined with the lack of natural production of lubrication and the heightened levels of bacterias makes anal sex a down right risky venture.

    Understanding my point of view relies on an acceptance of "normal intercourse". Many are unwilling to accept that idea, but if the type of intercourse our bodies are designed to engage in is not the basis for this, then there simply is no basis and it relies solely on opinion.
