i think this is the main issue here. those that "oppose" homosexuality, per se, still have a hard time understanding how much is learned and how much is genetic. i honestly don't know. as MOP mentions with pedophiles, can be said for other things: serial killers, wife beaters(am not comparing these things to being gay, just using them as examples of possible genetics), effeminate but not gay males....how much is learned and how much is genetics.

if it is inherently inborn, can that be said of other things? can people be genetically programmed to cheat on their signifcant others? can people be genetically programmed to be poor/great parents? can people be genetically programmed to be Steeler fans(hope so)?

interesting.

Exactly!

Seriously though, gay couples probably have the same amount of gay kids as straight couples, but their kids are more comfortable coming out.

I do know that homophobic parents are way more likely to have homophobic kids. I'm pretty sure there are studies backing that up.

just as vegan parents have, probably, more vegan kids. or wife beating parents have, prob, more wife beating kids. or outdoor loving parents have more outdoor loving kids.
i know what you are trying to get at, but what counts, is what you define homophobic to be.

I'm not sure throwing any word in will give us structure to our discussion. We need to define what our goals are. i.e. kids that do better in school, kids that have more friends, etc. What's optimal to you may not be to me or the next person. For instance, I like the beach, some people may like the mountains.

Absolutely, I SERIOUSLY want your opinion. Do you think your opinion is so angry that I would be fearful of it? I just want you to be able to explain it and justify it. Any time you bring God into a discussion about what our government does you have to realize you are walking a fine line. I didn't write the laws.

damn. give me a minute on that. the problem/joy of this type of discussion leads us to other discussions. hmmmm....i guess this may be best done with a version of the "ben franklin" close/argument. make a liste of the pros/cons. i, honestly, cannot think of a better way to do it. i am open to suggestions. but, if this is to be done, we have to be completely honest about what the pros/cons may be.
i would start, but you have to give me some time on this thought process. anyone else can jump in at any point.

Go for it.

I definitely think performance in school would be a factor. Ability to make friends would be another.

Screw that. Wit, fashion sense, ability to control one's finances, knowing which fork to use and where to put the chaise in the living room... Those are the important things, and let's face it, folks: the gays have it all over us.
