Why do people pretend being gay is normal?

It use to be classified as a sexual disorder, & was only removed for PC reasons when it should still be listed in the DSM. I'm tired of people using terms like "homophobe" or "closet gay" etc, for people who speak the truth about it - it's unnatural. I don't think straight men should be demonized for not wanting to be around gays as it makes them uncomfortable. Btw - this has nothing to do with religion & everything to do with science. Also, I'm totally against violence towards gays & they deserve to be treated with respect like everyone else. My point however, is that it's not natural & should be researched on how to cure it. I don't think gays should have kids as it violates nature.

The law of nature: men have penises, women have vaginas. The penis fits perfectly into the vagina & these two sexes can mate. Gays cannot breed, thus = against nature. Of course you can't choose your sexuality! That's why I'm saying science might find a cure or treatment 1 day. Pedophiles are attracted to children, they're born that way too - should we defend them? It's unnatural to want to mate with children as they generally can't breed or display attractive adult characteristics.

Everyone who's going on an insult rampage are just stupid PC losers. If being gay were natural they could breed. If everyone were gay they're would be no more human race. I speak the truth & don't care about being pc :) also, gay men have the highest HIV rate.

  • It's not "normal" in the literal sense of the word. But it IS natural- there have been gays and lesbians as long as there have been human beings, and many animals display homosexuality as well.

    Since homosexuals are human beings who deserve to be treated with respect and as equals, I do not think it is right to consider their sexuality as a disorder or a problem. Although I'm straight and therefore can't speak from experience, I would guess that being gay is exactly the same as being straight in that you are simply attracted to the people who you are attracted to. Although homosexuals do have certain struggles that are unique to their situation, many of those struggles are the result of other people in response to their sexuality, not the result of their sexuality in itself. I doubt that many homosexuals feel a natural desire to change their sexuality. It is not harmful in itself, so how can it be treated as a disorder or disease?

    You can't compare pedophiles to homosexuals because pedophilia is directly abusive to children and an infringement on their rights. Children cannot legally consent to sex, and depending on age they may not even be aware of what is happening. I also don't think pedophiles are NECESSARILY born that way- I've never heard that before.

    • I don't think someone's sexuality should be treated as something negative that needs a cure UNLESS it is harmful in some way. Homosexuality is not harmful.

  • I think you're tired of people using the term "homophobe" to refer to you. Because that's exactly what you are, and nothing more.

    Homosexuality has been around for as long as the human race has. Homosexuality is observed in animals besides humans, too, including dragonflies, elephants, dolphins, penguins, fish, bearded dragons, wood turtles, ants, butterflies, lions, domestic cats and dogs, and so many more. Obviously, there's something natural about it. Obviously, it doesn't "violate nature".

    How can you say that there should be a cure for it? Like it's a disease? There are doctors who treat pregnancy as a disease of which a woman needs to be cured. Does that mean they're right? Of course not.

    As long as it's consentual and they aren't hurting anyone, I don't see how another person's sex life is any of your business anyway. People don't agree with you because it's an incredibly closed-minded and prejudiced perspective, and you don't have the science you claim to back it up with. Sorry.

    • Just because it's been observed in other sources doesn't make it natural. It's something that should be treated like pedophilia, bestiality, etc. They can't breed which instantly makes it unnatural. You're just being politically correct. In yhe end, gays are consenting adults & no one really gets hurt, that's why people defend them. It's still unnatural. They also have to accept straight people are natural, & don't want to be around them.

    • Aw damn, I got trolled, didn't I? I thought I was doing so well, too. Well, I'm just going to go ahead and second (or third, I guess) goflipaburger's comment: Your stupidity is against nature.

  • when a horse and a donkey breed, the result is called a mule. tons of people know that, it's pretty common knowledge. but what I didn't learn until I took ap biology is that mules technically don't constitute a species, because a part of the definition of a species includes that the members can breed with each other successfully, but mules can't produce more mules. that's right, the only way to get a mule is a horse and a donkey. a male mule plus a female mule does not a baby mule make. following that logic, mules are unnatural too.

    ...except they're not.

    it's much easier to disprove a theory with a counter-example than it is to prove a theory. I respect your opinion I just completely disagree with it.

  • It is not against nature damn it. When the f*** will you people read that whatever we do is still part of nature, regardless? The only time when we aren't part of Earth's natrue, so-to-speak, would be leaving Earth in a shuttle. Otherwise, nature doesn't give a crap about gays.

    Have you ever thought gays are the answer to those that reproduce like fools, giving birth to uncared for individuals? There's no effort on their part whatsoever to help their children pass on their genes, too, so they're stuck being in the low zone of society.

    Nature favors people that fend for themselves. And yes, you are a homophobe and have sh*tty sources. Animals engage in homosexual behavior as well (not that we aren't animals, that is).

  • According to the American Psychological Association, "There is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay or lesbian orientation. Although much research has examined the possible genetic, hormonal, developmental, social, and cultural influences on sexual orientation, no findings have emerged that permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factor or factors."

    So, you've got the backing of the APA saying that it's not natural. They admit that there's nothing that lets people say being gay is genetic or anything like that.

  • Okay, penises fit into vaginas. So what? Men don't have breast milk; why do they have nipples? There are children dying of hunger across the globe. Who cares if some people are gay and don't reproduce? Or even better, adopt children who otherwise wouldn't have loving families? We don't need to cure "the gay." I'd support research on a cure for "the ignorant" though.

  • It's a sexual orientation? Heterosexual isn't classified as a sexual disorder. I highly doubt you have any scientific information that scientists and psychologists don't have

  • Your stupidity is against nature.

    • LMAO I was just going to use this... BLAH! You just win.

    • Name calling is the signature counter-offensive of the liberals.

    • No, its the signature of people who don't care enough to add a little thought to a response.

  • It's just as normal as being straight, having brown hair, having blond hair, etc. It's something you're born with. I never woke up one morning and decided, "Hey, I like girls AND guys", nor did I sit down and contemplate which gender I found attractive. I just like both, and that's that.

  • Lol how is it science? You can't "cure" how someone feels about someone else. If you think they should be "treated with respect" then why are you even asking this question and saying they need to be "cured"? That is highly disrespectful, I don't care if someone is gay, straight, or bi. It's their life not mine and it doesn't affect me in any way. Grow up abd stop being so judgemental.

    • It's not disrespectful, it's fact. I'm not dishing out insults, but truths. The kids the adopt are affected, & they make people uncomfortable. Would you be fine with a pedo bringing he's 9 year old date along? They need to respect straight men who don't want to be around them. Straight men are not bad guys just because they follow the law of nature. Get lost kid, you're not smart enough to be here.

    • If it was true, more people would be agreeing with you now but it isn't true. Lol you're a dumnass. Comparing gay people to pedophiles? Seriously you're insane. Obviously no one here agrees with you, because you're so pathetically stupid. Maybe that's why you're anonymous, grow a pair.

    • You know what's funny? How you can't debate with an intelligence - an automatic sign of stupidity. Keep dishing our insults & no facts. You're a moron.

  • What science are you referring to? Homosexuality is regularly observed outside of our species too.

    People can't choose their sexuality. Truly heterosexual and homosexual people know this. I would suggest that people who think you can are bisexual.

  • this is a very ignorent question, Homosexuals ARE natural, its a biological way of preventing a species from growing to over populated, there has been research about it, and even exists in the wild in multaple animals, its just Ignorent Religious people like you that keep thinking there is something wrong with it, go away, and take your religion with you, the world would be a lot better off

  • Because it's perfectly acceptable, and you are being a hatemonger.

  • LMAO how is it science? Scientists have proven that gay men are attracted to male pheromones... you can't just learn that type of behavior. I have a few gay friends and one never had any interest in the opposite gender and another only acted straight so his religious family wouldn't disown him.

    • It's also shown in over 300 species of animals... evolution tends to erase things that aren't beneficial to the gene pool... so the fact that there are so many species of animals that exhibit homosexual behavior should tell you something.

    • @update: yes it is true they can't reproduce but homosexuals make up around 3% of the population... so the fact that they can't isn't detrimental to the human race.

    • @update: You HAVE to be a troll..

  • Just no.

    • Why do you define the ability to breed as natural?

    • I think I just got trolled. -_-

    • I agree with this. ^

  • People used to say that about inter-racial relationships too. No one's requiring you to be GBLT. Odds are you'll go through life, work and be friends with people who are and not even know it. Who knows you might actually change your opinion when someone you're friends with is discriminated against because they're GBLT.

  • Natural - Existing in or caused by nature; not made or caused by humankind.

    Unnatural - Not existing in nature; artificial.

    Close to 1500 species of animals engage in homosexual or bisexual behavior . Homosexuality exists NATURALLY. It is not unnatural.

    • Hmm.. Humans are part of nature and that means that whatever we do, it is an extension of nature. Thus, everything we do in the end is still natural. We didn't "create" anything up until now, we simple transformed the resources of nature in whatever we needed (food, energy, shelter, tools, etc). Also, the environment is CONSTANTLY being changed along with its assigned life forms. It happens with humans as well, we just don't really realize it that much.

    • Exactly. +1.

  • I agree but in this age of political correctness it is bad to tell the truth it takes a man and women to make a baby tome that os evidense enough to show same sex is against nature.

    • Marriage is unnatural, it inhibits a man's true potential. What do you have to say about that?

  • uhhhhh well its not a disease or a disorder, just a difference. I cannot emphasize that enough. I myself am not gay, but friends who are gay stress that it is merely a difference, not a disorder/disease. this means that it can be researched like almost anything (why it happens, etc.) but there is no "cure" please keep that in mind. it offends gays/lesbians/bi-sexuals when you say it can be cured
