    Once again you have misread and misunderstood my point, but this does not surprise me, judging by your syntax and prose in your (presumably?) home language.

    I claimed that (many) cultures which accept homosexuality, are viewed with repugnance by us. The point being if many cultures accept something, it does not make what is accepted intrinsically moral. Many examples of such ; child marriage, slavery, and on and on.
    No I understood it clearly. The distinction between countries whom have legalized homosexuality as opposed to those who criminalize it is glaring indeed. You go ahead and make the comparisons between, I don't know, Canada & Iraq or Iceland & Nigeria and then you come back and tell me how repugnant the culture of the former is to the latter. This assuming you value intellectual honesty.

    I don't consider defending one's rights to be "crying". ( If it is you need to be sure to avoid the gun forums)


    Do you feel the same way about other civil rights issues?



    The key work here might be old


    I think your discomfort with the topic encourages you to interpret a conversation about equal rights as crying and wanting to be loved. I don't think the gay community is asking anyone to love them. Some are responding with love because that's there instinct.
    I believe the majority strive for it to become a non-issue

    When this happens, it will overall become a non issue.

    Racism does not exist to near the degree it once did, yet it is a more debated topic than ever. That doesn't make me uncomfortable, only irritated by the stupidity of people stirring the pot for the sake of argument.

    Poll will allow multiple choices, pick a choice for the "normal" question and for the "natural" question. Poll will be up in a couple minutes.
    Hard to see how anything in the natural world could be anything but natural.

    Normal? Like a place on a normal distribution?

    Re: Is Homosexuality "Normal" and "Natural"?

    According to Kinsey's studies - which are still widely accepted - very few humans are 100% heterosexual or 100% homosexual. Most people have instincts that go both ways, and there's a bell-curve distribution in the population along a sort of "straight-gay" continuum, where most are near the middle. In that light, both the 'normal' and 'natural' labels make sense.

    Also, there's strong evidence to suggest that many people learn to forget about or even suppress their gay urges because of social conditioning throughout their lives.

    What's sad is that in the year 2014, this is still a question.

    If you think my opinions about someones over reactions and insecurity is judging and condemning, you'd really hate to see me pissed off.
