    Most of what I like and don't like changes with time, and mood. I have no favorite color, clothing style or artists. These change daily. Hourly even. I'm fond of some writers, but my reading is not exclusive to them, nor do I agree with all they write....etc, etc....

    You consider pedophilia an orientation? How about bestiality?
    Yes.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I've posted this here before, but apparently it bears repeating:



    The first video shows that he truly is gay.

    The second backs the first, and tells when the brain develops these abilities (mid-pregnancy). AKA, born gay.

    Individuals should not be defining words. We have dictionaries for a reason.

    Yes, homosexuality is abnormal, as abnormal as my left-handedness, yet equally as irrelevant.

    And my favorite color is and always has been red. People are wired differently people can develop/gain sexual fetishes and even change orientation, however it still is not under your conscious control. No matter how much I tell myself my Art History class is interesting I will never be excited to attend.
    You can't reason somebody out of something they were never reasoned into in the first place.

    Even the dictionary is ambiguous on the definition of "normal." It depends on how one defines "norm." Many people use the statistical majority definition of normal. I view "social norm" as something that is socially acceptable. Therefore, in my view, left-handedness is normal. It just looks super-weird when someone shoots a basketball with their left hand.
