I'm a raging heterosexual (as is my wife). Neither of us have the slightest inclination towards procreation, as much as we enjoy practicing. Sorry, we don't have the breeder gene. I guess that means you wouldn't "support" us.
Conversely, we have gay friends with a raging desire for children. And gays, just like heteros, practice adoption, surrogate parenthood, in vitro fertilzation, you name it.
Gays are hardly opposed to procreation; they just don't like to do the same way you do. Ostracizing them for that is no different than so doing for race, color or creed.
If gays are not opposed to procreation they have a funny way of showing it.
The ONLY way to do it (procreate) is the way I do it (male/female).
Gay is not a gender, race, a color or a creed. By their own description its a sexual "preference" which CLEARLY indicates CHOICE. Maybe heterosexuality isnt their preference, but then that is their choice.
It's a an inordinate lust because its less common. Unlike heterosexuality it has no other benefit than gratification of a deviant (not derogatry, but meaning against the norm) nature.
Like pedophilia or bestiality...its not given to majority inclination.
Also, just because someone is inclined to do something doesnt mean that its a good idea.
Like gossiping, overeating, lying, or an attraction to children. Whether you feel you are born that way or not...is that an excuse to give in to those desires?
If so, why cant we (victims aside) be more understanding and compassionate toward pedophiles, for example? I mean they cant help it right? They were born that way like gay people....Right? Why do we expect them to control their desires if we say that it cant be done? Arent they victims of an inherent desire? Arent people who like to sleep with animals in the same boat?
Much like necrophilia, pedophilia and bestiality....homosexuality has no social or procreative benefit beyond deviant gratification and therefore should categorized with them.
It should not be categorized or compared with heterosexuality, which obviously has other innate benefits that support the sustenance of the species.
