"Never fear. Him is here" - Captain Chaos (Dom DeLuise), Cannonball Run
Mace Windu: Then our worst fears have been realized. We must move quickly if the Jedi Order is to survive.
Would you be so kind as to provide the board with other exceptions, wherein the meaning of a term, such as: "Sexual Orientation" is wholly isolated from the words of which the phrase is otherwise intrinsically rooted?
Does it not occur to the member that, where one must go to such lengths as to detach the meaning of the words used to describe something, that the concept being conveyed MUST be fraudulent?
For Instance, I like to race. I truly enjoy the competition of one Rocket Ship against another. MAN! I am telling you that I can't get enough of flying through space at incredible speed, particular at low altitude, feeling the wind against my face… Rocket ships, or "Missiles" if ya will, just get my juices flowin'. The thrill of feeling the engine power up, as the tension of the launch mechanism stresses to hold back the fury of the machine which I have built with my own two hands, is like no other.
Now having said that I'd like to show you a photo of my Rocket Ship…
But please understand, that the term "Rocket Ship" does not convey the ideas which would otherwise be asserted through the use of "Rocket" and "Ship"… I just think that when I use that term, people will get the idea passed along by the defining traits of the term, which is somewhat more flattering than TRICYCLE!
Now does that make me a dishonest person, just because I use a term which has no correlation to the words used to comprise the term? No.. I don't think so, because for you to conclude otherwise makes YOU judgmental of me and THAT IS YOUR problem, not mine…
I am an "HONEST" person… which FTR: when I use the word "Honest" I mean to convey the idea of being free of deceit and exuding truthfulness, despite knowing that I am full of deceit and practice untruthfulness.
Now with that said… is there ANYTHING getting through at all, in terms of the calamitous nature of your position, wherein you claim a given term, which you further claim has no correlation to the words used in the term?
"Sir, do you know why I pulled you over?
"No sir Officer, I can't imagine… please tell me, cause I am late for an appointment."
"Well, you were doing 140 MPH through that school zone, posted at 25mph"
"No Sir, I was not. I was doing no such thing. You see, I do not use a numeric scale as an indicator of speed. I prefer the use colors. I was right at the edge of pink and I feel that THAT was about right for me. So, you may feel that I was speeding, but you are wrong."
"Get out of the car, hands first… You're under arrest."
"Oh HOW wonderful, I love to arrest… I was arrested last night several times and enjoyed it very much. I am actually on my way to meet a fella who also wants to arrest me."
"Get out of the car Sir…" [This is tango 7, I need a tow-truck and an ambulance at this location…]"

Procreation is a function of sexual behavior, which serves the biological imperative… which is served through the normality wherein the male is oriented toward sexual gratification through coitus with the female.Procreation is irrelevant to sexual orientation.
Procreation is discouraged through the abnormal sexual orientation wherein an individual is sexually attracted to individuals of its own gender.
Procreation is only possible through the standard established by nature which promotes such. Therefore, procreation is dependent upon sexual orientation. Ergo, your argument is spurious, and as such, it >FAILS<.Since procreation is irrelevant to sexual orientation, nothing above has any relevancy.

So, given the indisputable nature of that fact, the would-be argument which was offered above is a SPECIOUS load of fallacious nonsense.
It's an embarrassment to the SPECIES!
The 'Biological Design" is the STANDARD, through which Nature promotes the perpetuation of the species. That STANDARD provides for incentives which TYPICALLY induce in the male, the desire for sexual gratification USUALLY through sexual interaction with a female. This process typically results in conception… and while it does not always result in conception, conception is is the CONDITION which should be EXPECTED, as this is the purpose for which the process was designed.
Adjective Conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected.
Noun The usual, average, or typical state or condition.
Now are you SURE that you can't see anything in there which MIGHT lead you to change your position here?
No I don't think your opinion will change my position, better people than you have tried.
In every instance, the argument was presented and the subsequent response has failed to recognize so much as reality; going so far as to claim that a key relevant term exists and is being applied with-OUT KINSHIP WITH THE MEANING OF THE WORDS USED TO COMPOSE THE TERM.
Therefore your reasoning is logically invalid and as a result it is intellectually unsound; thus the reasoning offered in the response is, in every sense of the word: Illegitimate.
Ergo, in failing to offer a substantive, logically valid, intellectually sound response, your argument fails.
Therefore: Your concession is duly noted and summarily accepted!
