    1) Silly argument - you've got to know that. Forget "natural" ... is homosexual behavior "normal"?
    2) Homosexuality as "diversity"? Something to strive for?

    Being left handed is not normal. it is also not a bad thing. having a genious level IQ is not normal, but is in fact beneficial.

    2) Homosexuality as "diversity"? Somerthing to strive for?
    Not sure that you can really strive for homosexuality. It just is.

    Just because a pair of gay dogs or mice exist doesn't mean being a homosexual is perfectly normal and healthy. Every organism has the potential to suffer from a range of physical and mental illnesses. That's like me pointing to a lion who kills a few others to screw the lioness, referring to it as a serial killer and saying, "See, committing murder to screw who you want is perfectly natural."

    Perhaps you believe creating homosexuals is nature's way of population control as the world becomes more populated.

    Let me state it more precisely, a kid can never have two biological fathers or biological mothers. Hence a kid is meant to have a mommy and daddy.

    Your car already has one scratch on it from when your son scraped his toy up against it, so no harm if I key the side of it. That's like what you're saying.

    So is homosexuality normal or not?
    Is diversity a good thing or not?

    Never claimed normal. I said "natural", in response to your claim about what is "natural". You have yet to show any evidence whatsoever that homosexuality is a physical or mental illness. Probably because there is no such evidence. Lastly, you are confusing "natural", with good.

    Perhaps you believe creating homosexuals is nature's way of population control as the world becomes more populated.
    Perhaps I am like the experts in the field, not sure exactly what causes orientation to set one way or another. We do know there are 2 or 3 different possible evolutionary explanations of homosexuality, but those are hypothesis. No one knows for sure.

    Let me state it more precisely, a kid can never have two biological fathers or biological mothers. Hence a kid is meant to have a mommy and daddy.
    That does not follow. Meant how?

    Your car already has one scratch on it from when your son scraped his toy up against it, so no harm if I key the side of it. That's like what you're saying.
    No, that is not what I am saying. I am saying that under the trusteeship of straight people, marriage has fared poorly. Gays can hardly do worse.
