    Such as? Am I a 'fringer' for believing the homosexual act is 'abnormal' in your view?

    Why are you so defensive all of the sudden? Is this not an opinion board?

    This is a thread with a pretty narrow purpose, there is nothing stopping anyone from making another thread.

    Yes, homosexuals are abnormal. One of their most fundamental instinctual drives does not operate properly.

    If you are trying to insinuate that homosexuality caused the downfall of civilizations... then yes.

    that i couldn't tell you offhand; there i would look for tihngs like stability in numbers (trump spikes in the polls; that doesn't make him a "normal" republican), functionality (the human species is clearly meant to reproduce with both genders involved) and other factors. I admit I couldn't give you a hard and fast number and defned it. certainly it would be less than 50%.

    Deviation from the norm would be indicated by this statistic. Doesn't that say ab normal?

    Statistically, it is an abnormality. Just like left-handedness (me), red hair, blue eyes (me), genius IQ, curly hair (me), musical ability, etc. The commonality amongst all abnormalities is that they are naturally occurring variants in the animal design. Their continued existence almost counter balances their abnormality. If, for example, percentages of any abnormality were to increase or decrease it could be said that some outside influence is generating them, thereby making them "unnatural". Since, however, most statistically minority traits occur in consistent percentages of the population, it is hard to argue that they are not naturally occurring and thus, "normal."

    An example of an outside influence affecting an abnormality would be diabetes, which has seen rising numbers in correlation to the increase in obesity. It occurs normally in nature, but it occurs abnormally because of an outside influence.
