Reality check, our homosexuality is something we grow into, you know, like your heterosexuality. It is instinctual, you know, like your heterosexuality. We learn what to do with our homosexuality, you know, like you did with your heterosexuality. Well, not quite, like you, we are raised under the presumption that we're going to be straight, but unlike you, we're never going to be. Think about it.

That's sweet of you dear, but if that was the best response you could come up with, I have to ask, why in the hell did you even bother?

I bothered because I want to drive home the point of your dead-end life style...nature's method of correcting an abnormal occurance in a species....cannot replicate and are therefore ended after one life cycle.

Sweetie, just be thankful that natural selection hasn't caught up with you yet, the stupid usually cull themselves from the heard fairly quickly. By the way, as long as the heterosexually oriented be making babies, some of the babies they be making will always be homosexual. And one other thing you might want to know for future reference, but just like opposite sex couples who for whatever reason cannot procreate amongst themselves, options are in fact available. gay don't mean infertile, moron. You really should have quit while you were behind.

Passed any genes? I have! How about blood donations? I doubt you'll get many options to pass your stuff into the heterosexual realm. And just so you know the word is HERD. Heard is the past tense of that thing we do with our ears.

Actually, individuals of many species practice homosexuality at some point in their lives; it's quite natural and a bit more complicated than Mendel's peas.

Not that the nature/nuture argument matters. Some people are gay, for whatever reason. Full stop.

So you DO ascribe to the belief that homosexuality is ordained by birth and is NOT a choice? Notice I called it a BELIEF. There is no evidence that homosexuality is a prebirth genetic fact, only a lifestyle choice.

So go adopt, and I'll bet your gay daughter will try to raise them as gay, not let them become what they were "born" as.

So your view of mankind is we are no better than the lesser "species"? Thought so. You think with the lizard part of your brain, all gut instinct and no thought.

My daughter will raise her children to be open, honest, sincere, non-judgmental caring people who will love without condition, unlike you who judges her without even knowing her. It's attitudes such as yours that perpetuates violence, hate and anger. You don't know her, yet you are already predicting what kind of parent she will be...if she chooses to be a parent. I wonder if you have children and if you do are you teaching them to hate people because they are different from yourself? It's a very sad way to live. I have no desire to further this because if I do I will only be giving you more of an opportunity to litter this feed with your bigoted attitude which has become a huge waste of my time.

Yet the "just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there" does not apply to a God right? Can't have it both ways. i hope your daughter foregoes her ill advised choice to be gay and becomes a great mom, albeit one who doesn't have to try and explain why her child has two moms instead ofa mom and a dad like most of the other kids do.

This could go on for ever, but the logic is there, homosexuality is not a natural occurence, impossible for that to be. Ignorance is a posible occurence, one need only pull their zipper down. The human mind is a vast collection experiences and each of us has a different perspective of reality, some valid, some not. We each have to try and take ourselves out of the equation and look at homosexuality at its core. It a real thing, its there, we can see it, but is it a natural occurence in nature, obviously not. So, what do we want to think about it? Its there, it ain't going away, how do we deal with it? I for one don't care, not my issue, too many others to worry about that have real effects on my life and my families.
