No, a transsexual is someone who does not identify with their assigned sex.
They can be straight, gay, or bi.
Aura Mytha wrote:
How can you justify a transsexual as being "straight" ? That's a contradiction , they could be heterosexual but straight?
I see no difference between "straight" and "heterosexual", or between "gay" and "homosexual". The Merriam-Webster Dictionary doesn't see a difference, either.

You still haven't said what you consider to be "doubtful".

The big bang
It is not certain if it was an explosion as understood by the term bang or an expansion
Scientist (certainly cosmologists) are more and more referring to the start of the universe as the event rather than the big bang
If the "Big Bang" is understood to refer to the expansion, I still fail to see what is "doubtful".

A lack of a father figure or a father that works all the time.
Or a father leaves the family or works all the time (staying away) because he doesn't relate to having a gay son.

You have cause and effect backwards.

No, the safest way to live as a homosexual is the same as the safest way to live as a heterosexual. Being monogamous, or if not, using protection. No difference.
Eagle12 wrote:
One can love and be loved without sexual encounters.
There is no reason for a gay person to do that while their straight counterparts do not.

No, it's someone who is assigned as one sex but who identifies as the other. Such as someone raised male but who feels female, or vice versa. If you talked to a transsexual, they would assure you that they know what sex they are. And that it's not the one that they were assigned when they were born.

You say assigned , but now you will have to explain who is assigning. Assignment has to have an assigner , you mean a person want to be assigned to something other than what they are or were born biologically.

I know you are not a racist, Clementia.

Eagle is the racist.

And he should be ashamed of himself.

But he knows no shame, having embarrassed himself here countless times.

Some people are hopeless, unfortunately.

The rest of us just have to carry on and not let it bother us.

Well, you won't. Not with the biases you are unable to break away from.
In my lifetime and personal observations. I think some homosexuals are molded that way because of their environment.
All people are molded by their environment.
A lack of a father figure or a father that works all the time. I also believe some may have been born with a tendency to go that way.
You are claiming that every single person who lacks a father figure is going to turn out gay? That's quite the claim.
As we have talked about it is a very dangerous lifestyle. Especially those who engage in multiple partners. One thing for sure I donít believe hate solves anything. The safest way to live as a homosexual is to abstain. Live, have friends, family and abstain from risky sexual activity.
That's true of heterosexuals, too. Especially in Sub-Saharan Africa.
One can love and be loved without sexual encounters. They can then live a healthy and fulfilling life. I believe God can and will give them the most to live for if they would turn to him.
How naive of you.
