    Re: Is Homosexuality A Choice?

    So this may have already been posted but the when I looked up the definition of defect I found "Imperfection, flaw, or deficiency." Who gets to decide what is defined as such?

It seems like a much more valuable evolution than to force a limited perception of what is and is not acceptable on people who differ from us.
    Homosexuality is a choice?

    Are you asking me if I believe it is a choice? If so , then no. It is not a choice. How does that effect anything? (no sarcasm)

    there does not have to be an outside victim for a defect to be present, if we could cure breast cancer and the genes that predetermine people that have it we should ignore the cure?

    Well then you need to change your last post to me to make sense and reflect your feelings.

    But homosexuality isn't life threatening (unless you live in Alabama maybe) And again, it is only a struggle because it is "socially" unacceptable. it's really not the same thing.

    And who is the judge of that? It's us not nature. She makes adjustments all the time. If making babies is your standard of "utility", every man should have sex with every woman he can, even if he has to rape them to do so. I wouldn't go there if I were you.

    Both are defects with genes, correct or not correct?
