Back to the original question... I think when your co-worker describes it as "unnatural" he/she is basing that judgement on socio-religious paradigms that may be flawed or outdated. I'm sure he/she is using the term unnatural in the colloquial meaning; abnormal, or not-mainstream. That's also how I use it in this thread. I'm not using it as meaning "not from nature."

To me, being gay is no more unnatural than being straight, or no more unnatural that being blonde versus being a redhead.

We all have paradigms on which we base our opinions of natural and unnatural. That's what's great about being a libertarian... to me, nothing is unnatural.

@curtis73,
natural is what is, un-natural is what isn't.

And naturalism is when you make what isn't seem like what is.

@existential potential,
For normal people yes; for perverts it's perfectly natural....

By that rationale, being gay is natural. Its obvious homosexuality exists, therefore its natural.

by what paradigm or on what authority do you base this? Do you believe that homosexuality is something that is only done by perverts?
