    You neglected key elements of the statement I posted which would have otherwise clarified what I actually said and meant_

    Such people are convinced that all dissent of popular gay myths and issues are rooted in hate, homophobia and religious fanaticism_
    Those key elements are highlighted in red__I suppose it could be a simple oversight on your part_

    But most likely you intentionally ignored them in an effort to twist my words and bolster yours_

    When taken in context everything I said makes perfectly good sense to anyone with good sense!

    If you can't think of a rational argument for your position then maybe you should adopt a new one_

    Simply vote and discuss whether you believe that homosexuals have a choice in the matter, or were simply born that way, with no choice whatsoever.

    Please be courteous - thanks in advance.
    This topic has been hashed to death. Please stop making threads about old topics. Thanks.

    No one has demonstrated it to the point of being a fact, but all current research points to genetic roots for homosexuality.

    There is just as credible research on the other side that says it does not. Truth be told it depends on what side of the issue one is.

    Not necessarily. Not EVERYONE makes their relationship decisions based primarily upon sexual desire. Animals do I suppose. Not ALL people do.

    I think that is the first statement about gays you've posted that I agree with.

    The topics about sexuality in relation to gays are so polluted with loyalty to one set of slogans or the other - as simplistic of slogans as people can chant - has made intelligent discussion all but impossible.

    Yes, MOST people now agree that humans are no different than fruit flies in establishing their relationships that include sex. I'm not one of those people.

    Bisexuals are the only people whose relationships are not limited by gender prejudice.

    The term "LGTB" is bizarre actually. Homosexuals and Hetrosexuals are the same in comparison to bisexuals. A bisexual I know sees the feud against gay rights by heterosexuals as bizarre - as both EQUALLY have the same gender prejudice against half the population.
