Only in the miniscule mind of the tick can we see ignorance personified.
You only prove how easily you are tricked, not much else seeing you aren't gay and all.
Of course the gay community will stand behind a curtain and scream that they had no choice in the matter, that absolves them of any responsibility, load shedding if you will.
Why take responsibility when the alternative is soooooo easy?

Just as I thought. I have a front row seat to watch you say you have nothing.

That didn't make a bit of sense.

Are you arguing that everyone is born attracted to the opposite gender, and some teenage kids, having amazing super powers, completely remove all attraction to the opposite gender and completely replace it with attraction to the same gender?

What a silly notion! Why the heck would they do that? What's the mechanism?

Most kids can't remember where they left their book-bags, or to take the trash out, to put the toilet seat down or just about anything else. How do you think they can do such an amazing thing?

Geesh. I've never met a single straight person who believes that they somehow chose to be attracted to the opposite gender - it came naturally to them. Why do you think gay kids alone have this power?

And just what would the "easy alternative" be? Scrubbing away all attraction to the same gender and replacing it with attraction to the opposite? And that's EASY? It's not even SANE!

You should at least START with common sense.

Does any other animal "mate" with the same gender?

Humans are too smart for their own britches.

Yes, and it's usually unconditional.

Is "love" a part of gay relationships?

Or are they sexual relationships?

Gay bars are noted for promiscuous sex, nothing to do with a long term loving relationship.

They aren't in "love" but instead in "sex".

Gays can't conceive kids and have no future but in sex.

is their concept of love as complex as humans...i would doubt it is.
I think it's the very simplicity of animals' love what makes it deeply felt. They seem to love without shame or guilt or conditions. This is especially true of my yellow lab. Apart from her tender and loyal feelings toward one of our cats, she also expresses those feelings toward me, warts and all. There's nothing I have to do to please my dog. She just wants me to be there. Simple and pure.

You forget that there are also promiscuous bars for straight folks. Many straights go to them in order to not have a long term relationship. Those who do frequent those bars are only after the one niter stands.
.
Thus one can argue the same thing about many straights.
.
Thing is, no matter if the person is gay, straight, or bi. Most humans are capable of love. As in being in love. being in a relationship, etc...
.
And for many straights. Some are unable to have kids. Due to a medical condition. Or due to age. They have no future but to only have sex. Especially those who did have kids and they grew up and moved out.

I think true love is simple. If we make it too complex or analytical, I think we threaten to destroy it. Love is not arrived at intellectually.

Agreed, because of humans smarts they think anything thinkable is natural and it isn't

Same gender mating is not normal but just a manmade activity.

Gays think because it's possible it's normal and why not "do it" in Gay bars??.

<quoted text>yet yo have proved it yourself...remember?
when i asked you about your choice of the gender you are sexually attracted to?
you didn't choose that, we ended up proving..neither did anyone else.
why do you have to lie so much about the people you fear? are you really that small minded and small of character? it would seem so from your posts...
Of course I remember tick, the circuitous argument proved something to you, not me.
Kind of like the chicken and egg argument, only you decided your choice to be superior.
For just an opposing argument, you sure work yourself into a lather.
You always project a soufflé only half cooked, back into the oven you go.

Would it be true if I were to say homosexuality harms society?

Wouldn't that be more to the point?

Wouldn't that be much easier to prove than projecting an unknown into the future?

Maybe you, in your infinite wisdom, can do the search yourself.

Obama has some sobering numbers concerning gay sex, hasn't he forwarded that very important, but damning info to you with your free phone?

It's called Center for Disease Control and prevention. Take a stroll down its wide isles, absorbing the sexually transmitted diseases, and who is most at risk. Obviously HIV is not confined within the gay community alone, but the costs are staggering.
From the CDC:
'While anyone can become infected with an STD, certain groups, including gay and bisexual men and young people, are at greatest risk'
Isn't it amazing that those are the same two groups pushing the gay agenda?
The financial burden placed upon society by the gay community would make many an accountant disintegrate by way of spontaneous combustion, but don't tell anyone.
It can be our little secret.

We have very different views about love. My view doesn't allow me to know the mind of an insect or a fish.

Someone with your obvious lack of knowledge should remain quiet on the topic of what is normal.

My free phone? Really? Does that mean I can quit paying my $125/ month Verizon Wireless bill? Cool! I'll donate that money to Hillary's campaign instead.
