Old SniffButts Billy doesn't post much anymore, he's getting way up there in age and causing trouble so he is heavily medicated in the Livermore Loony Bin.

It was funny when he used to post "Shut yer ugly pie hole!" all the time when he got frustrated.

Bill rigs the judge-its. He rates posts over and over, good if you're gay, bad if you're straight. Except his own posts, which he rates good even though he's straight.

The "solution" that the author is referring to has to do with the origins of homosexuality--not the ability to change homosexuals.
And what are you talking about when you bring up "societal response to homosexuals"? Where did I say anything about that? Are you typing while you are drunk?
1. I said nothing about changing homosexuality. I simply exposed your lie, science can still find no valid reason for homosexuality, leaving it a defective sexual aberration.

2. You denied that homosexuality is a recognized defect in cultures across human history. I simply asked you to name one where that is not so.

In fact, here is an interesting expose

Science can find no valid reason for religious beliefs, religion is a defect in the human culture across human history

Homosexuality however is a natural occurrence in many mammals, science has proved that

That's not true. Religion is not a defect in culture and the reasons for religious belief are obvious and well known.

1.) Good God, where are your reasoning skills? Did you ever take a basic philosophy class? Have you had any exposure to scientific reasoning?
The author of the piece that you cited gave several possible explanations for the presence of homosexuality in our society. None of them are conclusive.
Try to find out why it is that some people have blonde hair while others don't. Scientists aren't sure. They believe that fair skin and hair colors developed fairly recently--within the past 50,000 years. But they are not sure as to why this occurred.
Since scientists aren't certain of the purpose of hair color, should we assume that anyone with blonde or red hair is a defective aberration?
You cannot arrive at this conclusion.

2.) Gays have been identified in over 130 Native American and Canadian First Nations communities. They were called "berdaches" by some. We know them today as "Two Spirits". Their roles included:
--healers or medicine persons
--conveyors of oral traditions and songs (Yuki)
--foretellers of the future (Winnebago, Oglala Lakota)
--conferrers of lucky names on children or adults (Oglala Lakota, Tohono O'odham)
--nurses during war expeditions
--potters (Zuni, Navajo, Tohono O'odham)
--matchmakers (Cheyenne, Omaha, Oglala Lakota)
--makers of feather regalia for dances (Maidu)
--special role players in the Sun Dance (Crow, Hidatsa, Oglala Lakota)

"In the ancient Assyrian society, if a man were to have sex with another man of equal status or a cult prostitute, it was thought that trouble will leave him and he will have good fortune. Some ancient religious Assyrian texts contain prayers for divine blessings on homosexual relationships. Freely pictured art of anal intercourse, practiced as part of a religious ritual, dated from the 3rd millennium B.C and onwards. Homosexuality was an integral part of temple life in parts of Mesopotamia."

"Homosexuality in China, known as the passions of the cut peach and various other euphemisms has been recorded since approximately 600 BCE. Homosexuality was mentioned in many famous works of Chinese literature.
Homosexuality has been acknowledged in China since ancient times. Scholar Pan Guangdan came to the conclusion that nearly every emperor in the Han Dynasty had one or more male sex partners."

"According to Aristotle, although most "belligerent nations" were strongly influenced by their women, the Celts were unusual because their men openly preferred male lovers."

"In many societies of Melanesia, especially in Papua New Guinea, same-sex relationships were, until the middle of the last century, an integral part of the culture. The Etoro and Marind-anim for example, even viewed heterosexuality as sinful and celebrated homosexuality instead."

-------

And don't get me started on homosexuality in modern culture. Obviously homosexuality is considered by scientists to be a normal orientation along the continuum of human sexual expression.

Finally, your link is broken... I attempted to read whatever article you placed in your post, but I reached an "error page".

Oh puh-leez. Do you really think EVERYONE will turn gay? Would it be THAT easy for you to "turn?" By the way, natural means: occurring in nature.... so homosexuality IS natural whether you believe it or not.

Bingo

They are frightened, unsure of their own sexuality they are afraid you will “convert” them.

It is their believe that homosexuality is a choice you make that drives this.

I have always been supportive of people that happen to be homosexual, I was around people when I was younger ( like high scho0l ) who were openly homosexual. I happen to be heterosexual and comfortable and sure of my sexuality.

I was approached, I just smiled and told them I was straight but thank you for the complement and they thanked me for saying it that way.

But the people you are talking to here, I don’t think are that comfortable with their own sexuality
