    We've had this discussion before. I maintain that there is no substantive difference between sexual orientation and preference, the former being a construct of the mind. Humans are, quite plainly, sexual.

    No no, the Captain asked you to show some evidence of this position. And since this is the first i've heard of it, too, i'd LOVE to read a scientific journal or a psychiatric study that shows what you are saying to be true.

    I'm not ragging on you, i'm just curious because i'd love to read such a paper to understand where you're coming from. I'm assuming you didn't just make it up, right?

    I don't have an answer you'd find acceptable.

    Try me. I can accept a lot of things, provided there is scientific of psychiatric evidence to back it up.

    I'm arguing against a certain position based upon its lack of sound reasoning. I don't know how to show evidence of such a thing; I can only explain the logic behind my position.

    Yes, we have had this discussion, before. And I still disagree with you, I still say that the difference between sexual orientation and preference is semantics, and I still say that there is no evidence that the folks we are discussing are repressed bisexuals. I'm not sure if you are arguing from a "sexuality along a continuum" position, ala Kinsey, or not. If you are, your position does not fit that theory. If you aren't, I've been asking you to clarify.

    I thought that's what I was saying. That there is no substantive difference between the two.

    Sexual orientation is a construct of the mind, not something based upon empirical evidence.


    ...and I still say that there is no evidence that the folks we are discussing are repressed bisexuals.
    The fact that said prisoners were previously exclusive to females before having sex with men under stressful circumstances seems like some pretty strong evidence that these individuals had a repressed or latent sexual desire for men, i.e., that they were repressed bisexuals.

    I'm not sure if you are arguing from a "sexuality along a continuum" position, ala Kinsey, or not. If you are, your position does not fit that theory. If you aren't, I've been asking you to clarify.
    I'm simply saying that humans are sexual, and that our sexuality is not absolute, which makes concrete concepts like "orientation" arbitrary and capricious.

    Well this post is made by someone who doesnt understand genetics at.Secondly i would like to think people love their children and dont just see them as a means to pass their genes.
    The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.

    Children aren't just a gene pass on method, but also legalized slave labor for 8-10 years.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
