    LOL no, but some do have to note to others that they are gay... when they note they are gay why do they if not to signify sexuality?

    This is the reason I detest at times having to refer to me or most people, the term straight. From what I hear they are a small minority though one would not know it.

    I'm digging for my 1970's hard copy dictionary now... I find I need to see if straight means anything in regard to sexuality... along with gay.
    You have the right to not be offended. Defined: To not be offeneded for any reason. Example: Slaves should have never been freed. Logic: They had the right to not be offended. Fact: Insistance by the indignant that a fact or oppinion is incorrect through double speak. Illogical, dictorial, ignorant, insispid prose.

    The mere fact that there has been no defined word/s in any language (I know of... *I know english bad english and really bad english*) is a significant factor when considering gays and history. Even though many argue against the case of no society that practiced homosexual acts and supported or ignored (whatever) it lasted throughout history.
    That's not how the word came to refer to homosexuality. See Gay - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia for more information.

    Also, what I said is not a matter to be "disagreed" upon. Some gay people don't consider their sexuality a part of their identity. It's a fact.

    This makes me think of another word used in the past for gays, different. Definately different in both cases. Most notably is an native american lives most or all of his or her life on a reservation. There is also the skin tone and facial bone structure.

    All that aside. who ppl are is a sum of all of thier attributes whether positive or negative.

    Gay denotes a sexual preference, it has since the seveties. I know, I was there, and perhaps earlier. Back then ppl didnt talk about it much. It is an definite identifer.

    Unless they or someone notes another word existing or not, to identify them, gay has, and now denotes thier sexuality. They chose the word from all that I know and it was and is widely accepted as it is. I find myself wondering what the lastest hard print dictionaries define gay as now, and how long if it notes homosexuality.

    In short it is thier sexuality that caused them to chose the word gay.
    Okay, but this doesn't address the central problem. How does a single characteristic make an entire person abnormal?

    Here is the crux of even trying to describe with one word the sexuality aspect. --->The word had started to acquire associations of immorality by 1637[1] and was used in the late 17th century with the meaning "addicted to pleasures and dissipations." Gay - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    That is the first line under the title of sexualization... pleasure, the sexual aspect. Hard to escape.

    I wont disagree that some intend no cannotations of thier sexuality, but the word even in wiki has a sexual vein, and has contiued in that path.

    I have enumerated them with various words and terms as to not offend anyone, most notably them. I used the word normal and at some point definitions for all words were asked for including the word facts. ~sigh~

    From now on I plan, hope, and intent to use the word abberation for the sexual aspect.

    Okay, but do you think gay people are abnormal or not? If you do think they are abnormal, please explain how a single abnormal trait makes an entire person abnormal.

    If you have another manner in which you would like me to examine it ... fire

    Abnormal denoting not normal by means of action or thought. Most do not consider sex with a same sex person normal. Hence abnormal

    Do I care? yes, Do I shun them? no, Do I agree with them? they are, and no, Does it matter to me if someone is gay? ONLY if that person decides or feels for some reason or reasons that I should know.

    It is not my fault, nor many who are homosexuals, that some are so vocal and demanding, and we cannot escape even by cannotation that gay is a word refering to sexual proclivity.

    The whole person is defined by his or her parts. The whole person in an abnormal sense may not at least appear to even be human. Wheter in the physical or psychological sense.

    Gays do not have to lisp and wrist flap as it is called, be so annimated and speak in such an overly emphatic manner which is attributed to only gays. <-- abnormal by sight and sound.

    I agree, homosexuality and same-sex intercourse are abnormal.

    Do I care? yes, Do I shun them? no, Do I agree with them? they are, and no, Does it matter to me if someone is gay? ONLY if that person decides or feels for some reason or reasons that I should know.

    This is not relevant to the question of whether or not gay people are abnormal.

    The whole person is defined by his or her parts. The whole person in an abnormal sense may not at least appear to even be human. Wheter in the physical or psychological sense.
    The whole person is defined by the TOTALITY of his or her parts.

    Gays do not have to lisp and wrist flap as it is called, be so annimated and speak in such an overly emphatic manner which is attributed to only gays. <-- abnormal by sight and sound.
    Most gay people do not do this. But you have not answered my question. How does a single abnormal trait make a person abnormal?

    I took aim and fired to save time on possible further questions.

    If the totality of a person is the fact that they are gay/homosexual, that is who they are.

    There is no way to escape one who is gay who feels compeled for any reason to pronouce it.

    You overlooked the fact I stated sexuality.

    If not for sexuality why would someone say they are or show they are gay?

    Those who do not hide something procliam/prostilitize it.

    Again it is inescapable that they are gay. Someone who in dress, speach, and motor function insists, along with any and all other discernable (piercings tattoos) means of expression, insists on everyone knowing has a reason. To show by no uncertain terms he is. This extends to some women.

    Why do the names not match up with the numbers in the poll?

    It's impossible for the totality of a person to be that they are gay/homosexual. Please explain how a person's skin tone is gay or homosexual.
