Precisely! Usually, when a person arguing for gay rights brings up the 'it actually does happen in nature', it's generally a rebuttal to someone who has brought out the old 'being gay is not natural, so it is wrong' argument.

I don't think there are many gay rights people at all who only support gay people because they think being gay is natural, they just have to resort to saying it to disprove another's points about how it's unnatural.
I don't think they are saying 'because being gay is natural, it is right'; rather, they are countering the argument that 'because being gay is unnatural, it is not right'.
Edit: so the point is, they are actually highlighting the fact that the naturalistic fallacy has no place in a gay rights opposer's argument anyway.

Fair enough, but I doubt anyones sole reason for supporting gay rights is that its natural. Anyway that still doesn't change the fact that there are no good reasons to oppose gay rights and the only good reason to oppose gay adoption is the prejudices that still remain in our society.

I'm not saying that that argument per se is hypocritical, I'm saying that many pro-gay rights people on here support general gay rights and gay adoption despite their arguments defending each contradicting each other.
