Why are you attracted to women instead of men?

It's delicious.


Way to not answer.  ::)


Several biological reasons, brain structures, chemical responses to pheromones. Testosterone levels possibly. Facial recognition, which is just falling back on brain structures.


Why are you attracted to men?

For the same reason you are.
Way to admit you are gay. Also that would mean being homosexual is not a choice. I win.

What? I did answer. The female body is just scrumptious. Don't you agree?


Yup.  

Maybe that was the wrong question.  Here's what it comes down to.  If a gay man and a straight man were locked in a room with no outside reference from birth and then presented on their 18th birthday a naked chick and a naked guy, I wonder if the same choices would be made?

They may go the way of male prison's way before that time comes.

They would be mentally retarded and would probably try to eat her as food. People need social interaction to be functioning humans. Sorry.

If they were locked in the same room there would be no choice at all.

Freud theorized that homosexuality was brought about through outside influences and experiences growing up. I do not see how this view makes it any more of a "choice". Freud certainly didn't think so; he was a great champion of sexual liberation.

Why does it matter whether it is genetic or a product of certain experience? Either way, it's moar bitches for you. Let the fags have each other.

This discussion is about gay marriage, not the act of homosexuality.

I know...Wardogg is basing his argument against gay marriage on the "fact" that homosexuality is a choice. Hence, homosexuality itself must be examined.

Well I don't think I used the word fact.

Im confused.  If it is brought about by outside influences and experiences how can it not be a choice.  If those influences and experiences never happened then the person should end up the same way regardless?

Regardless of the reason, should we change every institution to fit society in every way, like making college curriculems easier so mentally retarded people can graduate?

So gay people getting married, is the same as allowing a retard to build your house?

I don't believe you are born gay.  It's a lifestyle choice.  Therefore the rules are, be heterosexual so that you can be married.  They choose not to be, hence they can't get married.  Or something like that.

Science strongly disagrees with you, but don't let the facts change your opinions.

You believe it to be true and you are willing to deprive people the right to marry based on this belief, yet you don't believe you're right? ???

We do not always choose the outside influences and experiences. Especially when we are young. Such things would be just as much outside of our control as genetics.

Regardless of the reason, should we change every institution to fit society in every way, like making college curriculems easier so mentally retarded people can graduate?
I don't see how you can compare the two.

If someone is born with an inner ear condition that gives them vertigo at altitude they could be afraid of heights.
If someone had a traumatic experience in a glass elevator they could be afraid of heights.

One would be nature, one would be nuture, but in neither instance could you suggest the person chose to be afraid of heights.

Some gay people are clearly gay because of genetics.  Close female relatives of male homosexuals average more children then females with straight male relatives.  Clearly there is a gene or combination of genes that encourages sex with men, and the disadvantage of men having that gene is made up for by the women having more children (How The Mind Works, Steven Pinker).

What about people that switch, and then back again sometimes?  Is that not choosing?

Or bisexuals isn't that not choosing one way or the other?

But now you're not talking about gay people in general, but specific gay people.  Sexuality is not so simple that you can generalise all people based on the behaviour of some people from that sexual persuasion.  One of my housemates has sex with a different girl every week.  Clearly you can't extrapolate his behaviour onto all hetrosexuals, so why would gay people be any different?

You can't?  If every man could have sex with a different girl every week without any sort of consequesnces, they wouldn't?

I wouldn't. Random sex is fun occasionally, but it's nice being with that girl you've known forever, where you know every spot, and you both know every position you both like.
