    Are Gay People "Abnormal"?

    For how you define the word "abnormal", do you consider gays to be "abnormal"?

    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.

    it does depend on definition. Some people aren't normal regardless of sexual orientation. If by normal, you mean is homosexuality an illness or defect, then no. They are not abnormal. If you're refering to some notion of unnatural, the answer would again be no, as it happens in nature. If you'r speaking to what a majority thinks or likes, then the answer would be who gives a ****. They don't have to be gay.

    Of course it's normal for a certain part of any population to be gay. Is red hair normal? As far as I'm conserned there is no difference in the traits.

    Whatever definition you choose to use.

    This poll is a social experiment on multiple levels.

    To be fair Pete, Redress's question isn't "is it normal to have variation in the population?" It's "do you consider homosexuality to be normal?"

    It's normal to have serial criminals in a large population. That does not make serial criminals normal.

    With the way that you worded the question, no. If you had worded it differently, I might have said yes.
