Yeah, the degree of homo-phobia which some people have amazing me. Seems incredibly crazy -- not just illogical and irrational, but a telling ignorant fear.

First, there is the lack of animal identification. Humans are not just above all other animals, but not derived from them. Then there is the whole social sexual division. Man has traits from physical to social only to be manifest within man; and the same to woman.

How udder rigid and crazy?!

If either of those views is taken in the proper continuum of reality then homosexuality is as natural as heterosexuality. I've stated it this way to remove any linkage to specific religion or vacuous talk of morality.

Also let us not forget that "gender" is very loosely defined social construct, not reflected in real nature. There are quite a lot people not clearly man or woman, who just pick one of these roles, usually based on their look.

IMHO this poses a slight problem for homophobes Smile

LOL, yeah - that is so true. They are trying to garner funds to employ grunts like you and I. Do you hate the fact that it's done in the public? Or maybe you think high society will just go away (socially superfluous sector)? I find the "dog and pony show" very entertaining. Very Happy
