In spite of 'psychology, psychiatry, biology and sociology' not knowing what causes homosexuality, you claim they can determine the normalcy?
Do you really think anyone believes that nonsense.

Your move, my perineum...
In your example, scientists admit they don't know.

In my example, scientists deny they don't know, a clear violation of scientific proof.

Not only does their assessment of homosexuality become meaningless, it exposes their ignorant prejudice.

Like a cleft lip, homosexuality has existed in all of human history. Only in the last few decades have scientists known what causes a cleft lip. That determination will likely happen regarding homosexuality shortly.
In the mean time, throughout human history, both a cleft lip and homosexuality have been regarded as abnormal by all cultures.
The gravity of your stupidity is exposed.
Abnormal does not mean void of rights and freedom....To say being gay is abnormal and to say cleft lip is abnormal is fine but BOTH SHOULD HAVE EQUALITY AND FREEDOM AND CIVIL RIGHTS.....

I'm Gay and I Oppose Same-Sex Marriage
by Doug Mainwaring

“I know in my heart that man is good, that what is right will always eventually triumph, and there is purpose and worth to each and every life.” These words, spoken by Ronald Reagan in 1991, are framed on the wall above my desk. As a gay man, I’ve adopted them as my own, as I’ve entered the national discussion on same-sex marriage.

I wholeheartedly support civil unions for gay and lesbian couples, but I am opposed to same-sex marriage. Because activists have made marriage, rather than civil unions, their goal, I am viewed by many as a self-loathing, traitorous gay. So be it. I prefer to think of myself as a reasoning, intellectually honest human being.

The notion of same-sex marriage is implausible, yet political correctness has made stating the obvious a risky business. Genderless marriage is not marriage at all. It is something else entirely.

Opposition to same-sex marriage is characterized in the media, at best, as clinging to “old-fashioned” religious beliefs and traditions, and at worst, as homophobia and hatred.

I’ve always been careful to avoid using religion or appeals to tradition as I’ve approached this topic. And with good reason: Neither religion nor tradition has played a significant role in forming my stance. But reason and experience certainly have.

Lots of straight folks don't like the idea of marriage, but we don't deny others the right to marry because if their opinions.

The nice thing is that even the naysayers can change their minds and marry at some point if their circumstances and beliefs change, or they can choose never to marry. Their choice, not mine, yours, or society's.

California is a done deal, and every marriage there is recognized by the federal government. That's not going to change.

It's about time you learned to accept it.

Keep gloating over 5 to 4 and overpopulation pressures, fecal cultist.

It demonstrates that not all gay folks are lock step behind the rainbow flag, some oppose SSM for the same reason, I, and others who share a similar view.

Change is a two way street. Plus there's thirty plus states that maintain marriage conjugalilty.

You need to hold off posting, until you can be rational. He got everything right. It is you who is irrational, to think that any of your claptrap would brainwash anyone... Keep trying to make us think that we are wrong to think what we think. Go on, keep trying.
"Your 'explanation' seems to ignore the fact that homosexuality has been documented to naturally occur in over a 1000 species." means that you think that any act that occurs in nature is acceptable. Like wolves eating their young. Or basing our behavior upon animal behavior, like when pigs bathe in shyte. Why don't you have a grand old time, imitating them?
"What IS unnatural is promotion of bigotry, something you seem to be doing quite well." means that you feel persecuted for having us make up our minds that your behavior is aberrant. Deviant. Wrong. Tough cookies, Petunia. You engage in bad behavior, and we will notice it, and comment on it, and disapprove of it.
"You might want to consider natures ability to counter the effects of overpopulation, but obviously that concept escapes you." means absolutely nothing in here, we are not discussing overpopulation, we are discussing SSM, which is abhorrent.
I think it is YOU that needs to stop posting until you're rational, cupcake. If you stop making bigoted, judgmental statements and making fun of people, then maybe you won't have to cry about getting your posts deleted. The information in my post is quite relevant and if either one of you knew sh*t about behavioral science, we wouldn't be having this discussion. As far as you thinking being gay is abhorrent, I could care less, I find YOU equally disgusting, common and stupid.
