If you don't think they're different than you, then how can they be walking on the wrong track? Whatever "track" they're walking on should be accepted by you since they're not different from you. How can you say they're walking on the wrong track, for they're not walking on your track yet you don't think they're different? This concept is just wrong on many levels.

A joke for Rasheed.


Ask : How do you make a gay baby cry?

Answer : Take the pacifier out of his ... a s s.



A joke for Lenny.


Ask : What's the definition of AIDS?

Answer : Anally Injected Death Sentence.




And a joke for me.

A man walks into a bar ... once inside, he realizes it's a gay bar, but he decides, "What the heck, I really want a drink."

So he sits down at the bar, and the gay bartender says to him, "What's the name of your penis?"

The man says, "Look, I'm not into any of that. All I want is a drink."

The gay bartender says, "I'm sorry, but I can't serve you until you tell me the name of your penis."

So the man looks at the man sitting to his left who is sipping on a beer and asks, "Hey bud, what's the name of your penis?"

The gay proudly exclaims, "FORD, because quality is very important, he then ads, "Have you driven a Ford lately?"

"No", said the man.

Then the man turns to the bartender and exclaims, "The name of my penis is SECRET. Now give me my beer."

The bartender begins to pour the man a beer, but with a puzzled look asks, "Why secret?"

The man says, "because it's strong enough for a man but made for a woman!"



Moral of the joke: a penis is made for women.

You guys should be ashamed of yourselves. You know there's a word for this, it's homophobia.

Actually, I pity those who admit they're homophobic, but I'm offended beyond words when they don't admit they are. Those people should not go near me and tell me homosexuals are on the wrong track, ewww, what the heck they're thinking, it's against God's will, blah blah blah, yet they don't have the guts to admit they're prejudiced.

It's sad how most of those homophobic people normally have their prejudice towards race and religions also. They either don't like others because of their skin color or religion or both. If you observe those people, it'll amaze you.

[quote="bambang"]
Even animals which have no good brain as human beings never "marry" their same sex. He animals have intercourse with she animals. They never make a single mistake on this. They know exactly that he with she. [i][b][size=150]There is no he with he in their dictionary. [/size][/b][/i] :cry:[/quote]

Where did you get that? As far as I know, animals DO have homosexual behaviours. And, according to Wikipedia:"Homosexual behavior occurs among numerous animals other than humans, particularly among social animals".

And it goes on:

"Homosexual sexual behavior occurs in the animal kingdom, especially in social species, particularly in marine birds and mammals, monkeys, and the great apes. Homosexual behavior has been observed among 1,500 species, and in 500 of those it is well documented.[128] [4]. This discovery constitutes a major argument against those calling into question the biological legitimacy or naturalness of homosexuality, or those regarding it as a meditated social decision. For example, male penguin couples have been documented to mate for life, build nests together, and to use a stone as a surrogate egg in nesting and brooding. In a well-publicized story from 2004, the Central Park Zoo in the United States replaced one male couple's stone with a fertile egg, which the couple then raised as their own offspring.[129]

The genetic basis of animal homosexuality has been studied in the fly Drosophila melanogaster.[130] Here, multiple genes have been identified that can cause homosexual courtship and mating.[79] These genes are thought to control behavior through pheromones as well as altering the structure of the animal's brains.[131][132] These studies have also investigated the influence of environment on the likelihood of flies displaying homosexual behavior.[133][134]

Georgetown University professor Janet Mann has specifically theorized that homosexual behavior, at least in dolphins, is an evolutionary advantage that minimizes intraspecies aggression, especially among males.[135] Studies indicating prenatal homosexuality in certain animal species have had social and political implications surrounding the gay rights debate.[136]"

Lennye, I am not homophobic. Just take pity on them. That's all.

Thanks for the link, Dixie. Hope we're not gonna copy the animals' behaviors. The animal do that "thing" for the sake of their generation continuity. But we, human beings, should do the opposite. To have generations, we must marry to the opposite sex. Marriages between people of the same sex never produce generations.

:shock: What does that mean? What does truth mean to you? How do you know whether I always tell the truth or not? I guess it depends on what you understand by truth (=statements with which you agree).

No I am not going to discuss such a basic thing as homosexuality with you. It's a natural thing, either if you want to believe it or not. I don't want to blame you, but the society you were raised in. Anyway like I said I don't like discussing basic things with somebody that doesn't want to even try to understand. It's a waste of time.

:lol: I'm the "poisonous" one, Dixie. Anyone who stands next to me is a saint, so you'd be like God if you were standing next to me. Ain't that the truth? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Anyway, we see what we wanted to see, and it's the truth to us, isn't that right?

I don't understand you. You said you're neither homophobic nor you think they're different, yet you take pity on them and think they're on the wrong track. How can you have all that emotions when you see them as indifferent? They're not criminals, drug dealers, or anything like that. They just choose their mates in a different way than you do. If you think they're not different, how could they live a wrong life? If you're not homophobic, why would you take pity on them? What is the crime that they have done to the humanity? Please enlighten me. :?
