do you keep your gender preference to yourself? what is it about homosexuality that scares you and demetri?

Bigot. If you don't want pwecious wittle johnny and susie to see GLBT people, then homeschool them and don't let them leave the house.

GLBTs are teachers, data entry people, techs, customer service reps, tutors, clergy, doctors, dentists, nurses, firefighters, police officers, football players, truck drivers, librarians, bankers, lawyers, singers, dancers, etc.

Your kids have already seen them. I suggest that you grow UP and get a life.

I just found out this year that I was born (some years later!) on his birthday!!!! I KNEW I love Bugs for a good reason!

(However, my mother probably rues the day I was first acquainted with Bugs, as there are certain pieces of classical music that I can't hear without laughing hysterically!)

for that matter both Christianity and Islam have tons of absolutely immoral things in their scriptures... quite often the scriptures actually encourage people to do them. Sex slave trade, pedophilia, inbreeding, you know.
However people don't have problems with believing in it.

What you choose to do with your life is your business,,, But it’s a life choice or Life Style if you will,,, It does not make you a protected minority and it certainly does not make you normal. Keep it behind your door,, Do not try to legitimize your life style as normal in affect forcing everyone to accept your life style as normal when it’s not. It’s no more normal then a fetish and should be viewed as such. Such behavior even biblically was viewed as immoral and wrong so your argument falls down there.

On the old days - 20 years ago - many (most?) gays got married and had kids to hide it from their parents/families, employers, and society in general. So if it's something genetic, it was passed on.
Nowadays, they have kids thru surrogates, so their genes will get passed on that way. But I don't think most gays bother with that. It's also very expensive.

But I've read that it isn't genetic - something about the mother producing antibodies when she has a male child in the womb? The first one comes out hetero but any boys after that MIGHT react to the antibodies and it affects their hormones or something.
That theory may be outdated by now.

What?
Homosexuality is not normal behavior in humans.
Lots of people are homosexual and it hurts nobody. Pretty normal by my books.
I laugh at your comment about comparing us to the animal kingdom
I laugh at the fact that you seem not to know we are part of it.
It’s also normal for animals to eat their young in some instances,, Still does not make it normal for humans.
Why are you comparing homosexuality to cannibalism?
I am not opposed to your choice {that is your business
Thanks. I chose to be gay at 11.
I don’t want to see parades or any other attempt to portray yourself as normal or to set yourself as some kind of protected minority. It’s a life choice,,, nothing more so kindly keep it to yourself.
Your wants and want-nots with regards to other people's lives are of interest to nobody.

If you believe that it is not a mental illness but rather that some folks were born with it and have no choice but to have such impulses... then what else could it be?

A genetic defect. About like elephant man's disease.

Nonsense. For every strictly gay person there must be fifty who are bisexual. Having those proclivities they are naturally far more promiscuious than normal people so...
