This is a thread devoted primarily to the discussion of homosexuality. Anything pertaining to the subject -- be it moral, philosophical, theological, biological, psychological, etc -- goes. You can also discuss other forms of human sexuality if you wish.

I'll start the thread off by giving my own personal feelings on the subject.

Personally, I don't buy into the false dichotomy that homosexuality is either a choice or something that a person is born with. The causes of homosexuality in humans probably vary between individuals.

I don't believe that homosexuals can be reoriented into heterosexuals. Reparative therapy may cause patients with latent bisexually to develop heterosexual desires, but it won't cause them to lose their homosexual ones.

Due to my upbringing, I'll never be fully comfortable with homosexuality. I believe homosexuals have the right to live their lives the way they want to live them, though, and so I will do nothing to dissuade or hinder them from doing so.
