@momoends,
You're responding to posts from 5 years ago and more. The dates are admittedly small and are hard to see on a phone, but each post has a date in the upper right-hand corner.

I'm wondering if anyone can justify their opinions through logic

When did you choose to be heterosexual? Could you make a different choice? Would you want to? Would it matter if you did? Does your sexual orientation cause harm to others? Why are there so many examples of homosexual behavior in non-human animals? Have those species gone extinct? With so many examples in our species, why has the population continued to grow? What evidence is there that it is bad or good?
It just IS.

I don't think so, but I'm never really understood why people hate it so much, so I'm wondering if anyone can justify their opinions through logic.

If you are unsure ask your dog !

@moogly bear,
Homofoby is today unjustifiable. The resistance to homosexuality is a result of the power of prejudice. The origin of aversion of the homosexuality is, I tinhk, the spontaneous human propensity to categorize and to give value of normality to what is statistically more frequent ed any deviation is labeled like abnormality, deviance, disorder, disease.

@gagucci,
Don't you dare call homosexuality "deviant," eh? It's not a deviation from the norm. It IS the norm. I learned that from a homosexual I know, eh?

I know about bisexuality in nature, plenty of examples to point at...now homosexuality in pure form seems more like a human specificity a cultural by product of bisexuality perhaps...it doesn't seem to bite !

@momoends,
and with that comment i meant to emphasize that Bullying is not a contributing factor.. it´s what generates the inferiority feeling in a previously happy person, it´s what destroys someone´s mental stability by constant humiliation and physical abuse and ultimately dominates every single moment of the victims life, who at that age have no perspective of how long life is but a body full of crazy hormones and absolute devastating feelings. Bullying at that intense level is a killing weapon that is incredibly allowed by adults in charge

@layman,
I didn't say that the homosexuality is a form of deviance, not at all! I said that the homosexuality is a deviation from the statistical norm. That's all. The homophoby is a violation of a fundamental right, it is a consequence of deep ignorance. I know many homosexuals and someone is my friend. They are more intelligent and more sensible of the mean

@gagucci,
Homosexuality is not a moral issue of any kind it just a person who happen to have a misdirection of the sex and reproduction drive.

All in all it a non-issue as the ability to live a normal and fruitful life is not harm by that condition in any meaningful way and there are plenty of "breeders" to ensure the next generation.

@BillRM,
I'm agree with you. The homsexuality isn't a moral issue but exists a problem of prejudice and discrimination. I dont' know in another country but in Italy the students use the word "gay" as an insult and many gay men, especially when they are still teenagers, suffer terribly this situation. We need a hard campaign to educate the people to accept the homosexuality like a normal condition.

@gagucci,
I sometime wonder if the repulsion fell toward gay sex with special note of male gay sex is build into us more then it being cultural conditioning to help reduce the misdirection of the sex drive.

Many decades ago I remember seeing a porn clip that have a large circle of gay men who was join together by their................

This scene hit without warning as I was under the impression that the reel contain straight sex and I can still remember my gut feelings on seeing this circle.

The distaste I felt was looking back on it was over the top as far as being rational but it still was very real.

Was that socal conditioning or was iit build into my genes?

@BillRM,
This is a fundamental issue but I think it's possibile to imagine the same question about the sexual gay orientation. For a gay the homosexuality isn't a cultural construction but a natural thing as if it were write in the genes.

Why would you call homosexuality " a normal condition", when it obviously deviates from what is today called the "norm" in contemporary society?

Be careful not to confuse the statistical norm with the moral norm
