    I've never been too sure of this statement. If that was the whole purpose then why have so many species died out through the millions of years? And I'm not talking about just the ones that died because of some massive meteor.

    I think a more apt description of evolution's purpose is change.

    In any case yes being gay can be beneficial to the species. It's been noted that many homosexuals are more caring emotionally of the young than heterosexuals.

    homosexuality has a biological purpose, or at least evolution has made up for it

    So it is down to mother: gay gene survives because it boosts fertility - Times Online

    Interesting article, spud. I'd never heard that theory before.

    Choice or not, there is no reason that form of sexual pleasure should be any more or less acceptable than heterosexuality. I could care less if it's genetic or folks make the choice. I can tell you that I certainly didn't choose to be heterosexual, and that the idea of hooking up with a man does not appeal to me in the least. However, if you believe it's a choice, then I assume you at least have the desire to experiment with another man sexually, right? I mean, if it's a choice along the lines of choosing cake or pie for dessert, then why only choose cake? Surely you'd have the desire for a lil' pie every now and then, yes?

    That whole argument that it's a choice followed by you believing it's disgusting makes ZERO sense. If it's a choice, then there's some desire behind it.

    There is nothing wrong with being homosexual at all, and until the homophobes who constantly scream about how unnatural and wrong it is can produce scientific and psychiatric studies to back up their blathering, it remains normal - and yes, natural, too.

    Allowing him to do that is a choice, wanting him to do that is not a choice.

    Mr. Vicchio wins this argument with this line:

    "Being left handed is a birth issue. Allowing another male to push a blood engorged tube of his flesh into your rectum is a choice."

    Ponder on that, liberals.

    ^^^^^They died out because they were unable to adapt to change & evolve....
    For whatever reason.....
    I think a more apt description of evolution's purpose is change.
    ^^^^^ I could not disagree more....
    Evoloution describes the ability to adapt to change that is beyond a being's control, with regard to outside forces, ie climate, food, predition.....

    In any case yes being gay can be beneficial to the species. It's been noted that many homosexuals are more caring emotionally of the young than heterosexuals.
    ^^^^^ I don't see how being gay adds anything beneficial to a species....
    Your example, (if true) really does not add anything significant....

    The desire for personal change only occurs when discomfort (whether real or peceived) is experienced.....
    Whether that change is enough to survive & evolve....Well.....
    Evoloution is neither the beginning or end, it is the process....

    Why is it "liberal" to believe that being gay isn't a choice?

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I didn't say "engaging in homosexual activities", I said "being gay".
