    I think most people agree on that. I think sexual desires that are harmful are those that lead to taking advantage of people - like the desire to rape or molest.

    Clearly there are sexual desires that should not be acted upon.

    I hope you are not going to try to equate the harm caused by a pedophile molesting a child to whatever harm is caused by two consenting homosexual adults having sex.

    Thank you, and no, I do not equate consensual sex of any variety with the devastating and very sick practice of child molestation.

    I was prompted to ask after reading the post to which I replied, which then went on to ask whether straits and gays choose who they are attracted to.

    But it is nice to know that not everything is open to civil rights based on sexual preference here at DP.

    EDIT: I just caught the bolded part. Are you suggesting there is some degree of harm in homosexual sex?

    Harm principle at work here.
    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.

    There is some degree of harm in all sex.

    Pretty much the same as those in heterosexual sex. STDs, contusions and tears to tissue, etc. There are some differences. Gay men don't have to worry about unplanned pregnancies. Risk of STDs for both gays and straights can be reduced to virtually zero through the practice of monogamy.
