Why are we discussing this here and not on the "homosexuality is a sin" thread?
What's your obsession with homosexuality anyways?

It likely evolved for social cohesion, bonding and tension relief in social animals. At least that's what it does in non-human primates.

If you don't want to marry a same sex person, don't.

If marriage is solely about procreation, would you expect a child to be produced each and every year until menopause?

Such a small percentage of time is given over to procreation. Far more is given to upbringing.

However, calling it normal is a lie. A mating behavior that always fails when exercised in its innate function is defective.
My primary disagreement is equating mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gender couples with marriage.
Your denial of these facts only further establishes your position as Queen Blondie of the 'rational atheist' oxymorons...

1. Naive realism = you
2. It was not accepted in some cultures, and accepted in others
3. Science deems same sex sexual behavior normal in humans and primates, so you're incorrect here
4. Calling Native American cultures "primitive" is so ignorant, it's hard to know where to lay into you on that one
5. Oh. I've already stated that different Native American groups treated their in between genders differently. That was in the direct quote from the research article I posted.
6. There were no LGBTs in Native American cultures. This is you being naive again.
For the 4th time, Native American cultures were not failed Western cultures. They had very different ideas of sex, gender, sexuality, masculinity and femininity than you do. If you can't understand that, you're never going to understand humanity.
2. NOW you admit your were wrong?

3. Incorrect. Science understands ss sexual behavior in most primates. It does not yet know the cause in humans. Makes it impossible to deem it 'normal' scientifically, doesn't it?

6. There were no Indians attracted to the same sex? There were no Indians who thought they were one gender in the body of another? There were no Indians who were sexually attracted to both genders? Really.

Smirk.

Who's paying for your house arrest? I've read that the monitoring fee can reach $600 per month plus. Now that I'm thinking about it, how in the hell do you generate any income? For someone whose hobby is perpetual incarceration, it appears you live fairly well. How do you pay your monthly expenses?
I'm a former football star at the biggest football university in the nation.

People pay money just to be seen with me. I pick up cash for bodyguard work, or for beating the shit out of someone for somebody.

And if you want them to stop paying to incarcerate me, I'm all for it.

Exactly. It's really efficient.

Now Puck Frick getting locked up for repeated violent tendencies, that truly is regressive.

The most exciting part of the World Cup is watching the grass on the field grow.

I subscribe to real football. Not the kind that evolved from poor people kicking a pig bladder from one part of town to another, too disgusted to touch it with their hands.

And by the way, the Citizens United case was rightly decided and in accordance with the Constitution.

...Sorry for bringing up the C-word. I know you despise it. All liberals do.
