They don't have to be gay.

    The question was, 'Are gay people abnormal?". It was not, 'is homesexuality abnormal?".

    What Percentage of the Population Is Gay?

    Citing the 10% figure as the proportion of gay Americans, I would not say its abnormal. On the other hand, I would say that something like diabetes, which is much more common, is abnormal. It comes down to your perception of whether it is a good, neutral or bad trait (or however you want to describe it). I think of it as a neutral fact, so I would not consider it abnormal.

    Diabetes is detrimental to an individual's health, so I would consider it an abnormality. In that sense, I would describe people with any major disease or sickness as abnormal in that way. I don't think homosexuality is an illness, however.

    The question is, what people, country, imperial, civilization etc. in the last 5771 years considered Homosexuality as normal and has not vanished?

    Oh man. I have a feeling we are about to be introduced into some really fringe arguments.

    I would say yes becuase homosexuality is not a typical trait of individuals. Most individuals are straight. Not saying if you are gay that something is necessarily wrong with you, but it is statistically not the norm.

    What the hell? The last civilization to regard homosexuality as normal vanished years ago due to the fact that there inception was before Christianity 3,000+ years ago. No civilization has lasted that long, so no, you don't get a "cookie".

    No they're not abnormal because their sexuality is not the totality of who and what they are as individuals. If an entire person was abnormal because of one abnormal aspect of themselves, then every person in the world would be abnormal because we each have something not normal about us.

    I would vote that the homosexual act is abnormal... not necessarily gays as a whole.

    Good point, it is probobly more accurate to say it is not a normal trait of a person.

    If you want to ask that question, start your own damn poll. That is not the question for this poll, and I ask that people not be drawn into the diversion.
