The childish one isn't the one who just calls everybody an idiot and stupid
Must have missed that memo
Meh, I was too lazy to look back through a 45 page thread to find them.
SO what is it then,
gay people ARE abnormal
What is it
i'll be here
Normal is a range of behaviour Most of the "against" camp seem to think that they are sat in the middle of that range. The middle is average, the mean. Who aspires to be average and mean?

Based on percentage of a population, in regards to sexual preference I would consider gay people as "abnormal". I also would consider left handed people "abnormal" in relation to handedness. When it comes to birthing, I'd consider "multi-child births" to be "abnormal". In relation to hair color I'd say ginger-haired people are abnormal.
I wouldn't, as a generalized term for any of those groups consider them "abnormal" in the common sense of the word. A gay man is "abnormal" to me with regards to his sexual preference, but in a general sense is not an "abnormal" person. As a person, they're not more abnormal than a lefty, a twin, or a redhead. And due to how we use the term in common language in this day and age I would not use the term to describe homosexual tendancies, or the other traits, except for in a very specific discussion such as this due to the fact I think people by and large jump to conclussions of what you mean.
There is likely not a person in the world who in some category or classification is not "abnormal", so considering a person on the whole as "abnormal" due to their abnormality in a particular category seems foolish. However, I'm also not going to tow the line of political correctness and worry of what people will think of my views and sit here going that, in regards to sexual preference, homosexuality is a "normal" thing.
It is an abnormal trait that shows up in a relatively small amount of the population and at the most base of biological levels acts counter to the very purpose of life which is to allow its biological imprint to carry onwards into the fuutre. Because people now use the word "abnormal" to implicate bad, evil, wrong, sinful, or something to disdain isn't going to make me tippytoe around it in fear people will think I mean that. There isn't anything wrong with behing gay, but in terms of sexual preference it is not the norm.

It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
