    At this rate, the Family Research Council should support its position by linking to your claim in post #16 and the circle can be complete.

    This is why we consider certain sources "bad." They post a lot of made-up opinions with nothing to substantiate them.
    Okay, then here are some others who say that gays are not 10 percent:

    Based on the 2013 NHIS data [collected in 2013 from 34,557 adults aged 18 and over], 96.6% of adults identified as straight, 1.6% identified as gay or lesbian, and 0.7% identified as bisexual. The remaining 1.1% of adults identified as “something else[]” [0.2%,] stated “I don’t know the answer[]” [0.4%] or refused to provide an answer [0.6%].
    What percentage of the U.S. population is gay, lesbian or bisexual? - The Washington Post

    If the 1/3 of rapes of chidren are by males attacking boys---then homosexual acts by homosexuals would occur in all of them.

    That shows how much what is considered healthy or acceptable depends on cultural context.

    A theif steals. Someone who steals is a thief.

    A person with homosexual desires, but who never goes through the act----may still be classified as one----but doing it for sure makes them one. Dosen't matter if gay man has sex with a grown male, a 9 year old boy or a infant boy---that is still having "same sex"--ie---homosexual relations.
    Many men have homosexual sex only when there are no available alternatives, such as in prison. That does not mean the person is gay.

    Assume whatever the hell you like. Anybody who couples pedophilia together with alcoholism can't be taken seriously anyway.

    For the record, you responded to me, but I was addressing a comment by someone else. I don't see how alcoholism fits in a discussion of pedophilia either.

    Why can't it be a disorder AND a crime?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    No. There are alternatives. If a male has sex with another male he is a homosexual or a bisexual. Prison doesn't change that.

    Many, probably most, men will have sex with an animal or a hole in the ground rather than have no sex at all.
