In other words, you don't know. You thought you'd throw out a fancy-schmancy term and hoped a fellow fecal baby would think you had intelligence.
You're not proving anything to me, shitferbrains. It's the rest of the world that judges you.

Love it.
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.
Smile.
<quoted text>
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.
Let me get this straight... You believe that scientists DO know what causes homosexuality and what could cure it, but for some reason they're either willingly or forcibly being made to withhold this information?

Do you have any proof of this conspiracy?

Here's the bottom line, Kim... Homosexuality does not meet the "personal distress and social disability" criteria that determines what is and what is not considered a disorder.

If a person's behavior or lifestyle does not cause them "personal distress or social disability" then why should it be "cured"?

Many Americans are against gun ownership. Yet, no one would ever classify gun freaks (those who stockpile enough weapons to take over a small town) as "disordered" because their behavior and lifestyle do not cause them "personal distress or social disability".

Same with being left-handed, red-headed, tall, short, black, white, someone who likes broccoli, someone who hates broccoli, someone who prefers chocolate over vanilla, someone who watches football every Sunday, etc...

This is why scientists are not spending time and resources trying to find "causes" and "cures" to homosexuality. Ethically and morally, there is no need to do so.

If you don't like being gay, that's up to you. You can pretend to like women; be married to one, produce children, etc. No one's stopping you.

But don't fool yourself into believing that there is a worldwide conspiracy afoot to shut down research on the "causes" and "cures" of homosexuality.

There's a grade school skidmark running loose and shouting "troll" and "fail".

Is any adult bleeding? Any adult need an ambulance or a therapist?

Didn't think so.

My favorite part of its post was the hysterical rage filled bi-polar "bigoted piece of sh*t".

It's code for "I HATE you!!!! Don't leave me!!!!"

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.
Marriage and ss couples are clearly distinct relationships. Not equal.

Imposing an imposter relationship on marriage will not gain you respect. It will simply garnish scorn.

It will "garnish scorn"? That's priceless!

Equality is in the eye of the beholder.

Public trash, Judge clears Conway of all charges, dismisses DA's case against ex-COG chief.

Should have revoked his bail and sweated the truth out of him.

OK, let's first address that part of the Constitution that even mentions definition of marriage. Find that for me, would you?
Then, let's analyze their meanings and intentions, shall we? Then, we'll address the part that states that a SCOTUS decision can overrule the part of the document that empowers them to act, at all. The part that says that SCOTUS can nullify any part of the C they they find....inconvenient.
Problem is that the C doesn't have any provision for "interpretation" of hard coded items.
The Constitution doesn't mention many, many things. It doesn't mention cars, computers, or jets. And yet aspects of each one of these items can be argued before the Supreme Court.

Marriage of interracial couples was argued before the Supreme Court. Polygamy was argued before the Supreme Court. And now Same-Sex Marriage has been argued before the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court has not nullified anything that exists in the Constitution--at least not with the Proposition 8 case or the DOMA case.

Amendments have been made to the Constitution. These amendments were added according to the process provided by the original Constitution.

Based on the Supreme Court's interpretation of the Fifth Amendment, Section 3 of DOMA was found to be Unconstitutional. This allows married Same-Sex couples to qualify for Federal Benefits in those states that currently (or in the future) recognizes Same-Sex marriage.

Now I realize that this flies in your face. You don't like it. But your only recourse is to start your own movement, find your own attorneys, fight your own court cases and eventually bring your own arguments before the Supreme Court. Good luck with that.
