    Other then the fact you have an opinion that differs from the APA, (again I ask,what qualifications do you have that allows you to make mental health diagnoses) do you have any proof that homosexuality is in fact a disease?Have you yourself done any clinical research on that subject?
    Have you published your results?
    Or are you just sprouting out your biases and let evidence to the contrary be damned?

    did you just compare homosexuality to a disease?
    I hope i misunderstood nd your not equating the two.

    lots of "defects' occur naturally. doesn't mean that they are "normal". of course, just because something is not "normal' doesn't neccessarily mean it's a bad thing....only that it lies outside the "norm" for a given population.

    speaking strictly on the basis of statistical norms...it is undeniable that homosexuality is not "normal' since it occurs in such a very small percentage of the total population....as does left-handedness


    the whole normal/natural argument both for and against homosexuality is pointless and proves nothing

    What is the primary reason behind your support for same-sex marriage?

    From a legal standpoint being married imparts many benefits. Not extending those benefits to same sex couple, or polygamist families for that matter, is clearly a violation of the equal protection clause in my opinion. If we don't want want to extend marriage benefits to homosexual couples we should remove them heterosexual couples.

    From a societal standpoint stable families mean stable societies. For that reason alone we should encourage same sex marriage as a matter of sound social policy.

    On a personal level if someone finds love with a person who's the same gender as they I say good for them.

    Let me add to it then. The crap that comes out your anus is filth and there are reasons your body looks to get rid of it. This is why medical issues are often caused by sticking a dick in an anus, regardless of whether the two individuals are healthy. The side effects of being left handed are what?

    re: What is the primary reason behind your support for same-sex marriage? [W:539/549]

    Liberty and freedom are why I support the move to make same sex marriage legal in all States of the Union. Anything beyond concern for liberty and freedom could be refuted by showing that opposite sex marriages are full of everything that one could accuse gays of. You name it us hetros have done it.

    But really this issue is a religious attack on society issue and nothing less. On average non-religious people couldnt care less whether gays get married legally or otherwise its just not a issue unless you go to church or believe that part of the bible.

    what is filth? does a mouth and vagina and penis hole contain it or no? lol
    do medical issues arise form vaginal and oral sex also?
    do straights participate in anal sex? how much?
    are there gay men that never do anal?
    what about gay women?
    what about protected sex vs unprotected sex?

    seems what you are trying to imply is meaningless in reality and facts
