Really? It has been considered not "eww" in more than one culture.

What's your stupid point...? It's taking advantage of someone who may not fully understand the relationship of sex. Simple answer. Of course, there are countries around the world which disagree on the age of consent (most do), and during history the age has risen (mostly) and rightly so. Now, if a girl who loves someone out of the AOC has sex, is that wrong? Perhaps not. But, if the older person manipulates the child into sex, then it is, and that's why these laws exist. Can one be 100% about this? Shit no. But, the law is there for a guidline and a reason. And, if you truly agree with me on it being a just law, you wouldn't have written such a stupid response, now would you?

You really have no clue, do you? (Hint: no need to answer; that was rhetorical.)

Well, I have nothing against an animal fucker, personally, but if scientists agree, that fucking an animal causes it major distress (yada, yada), then I would probably lean more to disagreeing. What have I got no clue about, Piobaire, you hillbilly, right-wing fuckbag?

Btw, would smash that scene like an avenging thunder god.

Plural marriage is a far better analogy than bestiality or pedophilia.

It isn't our disapproval alone which matters...the root of that disapproval is equally if not more important. In this case the root is religion or that homosexuality is unnatural.

If religion is the source...well...the argument is fairly sound internally and then becomes a matter of faith, so there isn't much point discussing religion and homosexuality outside the context of religion-and-state (or within the religion, I suppose).

Homosexuality is unnatural. And this is probably the source of the "eww-ness" (as well as the cause for it's treatment in the Bible). Is something being unnatural cause for us to pause and try to understand why it is unnatural and its ramifications? Yes. But it is the result of those considerations which should be used to justify legalizing or outlawing an act, not the unnaturalness itself.

I'm sure plenty of scientists would tell you it's natural; plenty of other animals have gay sex. The point of reproduction is to have offspring, but sex doesn't have to be about that at all. Sex can be, merely, about getting ones rocks off.

Also, I'd like to take this moment to take a stand.

Piobs, despite this action being almost universally reviled, I support your right to masturbate while watching the RNC and singing 'O Canada'.

'bate on, you crazy diamond. 'bate on.

One has every right, to say what they want, but in Piobaire's case it's mostly trash.

I'm not entirely sure "animals do it" is a good definition of what is natural. Far better would be an action's evolutionary function, in which case homosexuality is unnatural. (And with the exception of primates, doesn't most homosexuality occur under conditions of extreme hardship? In which case, one could argue that it's evolutionary purpose is to prevent procreation in situations where young couldn't be supported. Then perhaps it is natural in certain circumstances. Just spitballing though)

 

What I was trying to do was draw the distinction between nature and morality. What is moral is not necessarily natural and what is natural is not necessarily moral. It isn't that we shouldn't use nature to help us determine right from wrong, but other factors outside of nature need also be considered.

When someone says homosexuality is "unnatural" they don't mean it doesn't exist in nature, they mean it is inherently wrong.

^ Exactly.

Whelp, people should choose their words more carefully.
