    Here is the definition of abnormal :
    not normal, average, typical, or usual; deviating from a standard: abnormal powers of concentration; an abnormal amount of snow; abnormal behavior.

    Having same sex is not average, typical or usual for the majority of humans, This isnt even arguable the argument comes from overbearing people that want it the way they want it, with no compromise.

    Abnormal behavior in the case of homosexuality is obvious
    You are defining normal/abnormal in a statistical sense. As long as you ALSO agree that, in this context, being left-handed and being Jewish in the US is ALSO abnormal, I can agree with you.

    That is why my position on this is -- if homosexuality were normal, humankind would have become extinct long ago.
    Incorrect. There is a difference between sexual behavior and sexual orientation. A homosexual can engage in sexual behavior that has nothing to do with their sexual orientation in order to procreate. This does NOT go against their natural instinct, since we are talking about two completely distinctive and separate issues.

    Bawwwhawwwhawwwha... ahem. The views of a male can be mixed, between genders even when noted. how appropriate... the icon like many looks fem ~shrugs~

    nuthin is as difficult to discern on this earth as a woman ~ craftier either

    Straight males tend not to care, and want to know such things even less. Bet on many gender differences and you win everytime.

    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.

    Yet there is no evidence that shows that these difficullties are CAUSED by them being gay. Of course if you know of some studies that prove this causation, feel free to provide them.

    All of what he stated is caused by societies aversion to LGBT people, how people can't see that I have no idea.

    No. As I said, there is a difference between sexual behavior and sexual orientation. These two things are not the same. One's behaviors do not necessarily equate to one's orientation.

Much like behaviorism, in a way. In response to your 2nd to last sentence, does that nullify the term "bisexual"?
    You are incorrect. Folks who engage in sex with members of the same sex in prison are not homosexual. They are engaging in a behavior for two purposes: control/domination and sexual pleasure. There are plenty of studies on this. 90% of all men who engage in sexual behavior with other men in prison are heterosexual.
