    I'm asking you to provide justification. The thread doesn't state that your controversial "opinion" will remain unchallenged.
    Ahhhh, well you see - most people have a dating pool of about 50% of people (minus all the married, homosexual, etc), whereas bisexuals have the whole population to play with (this is imagining no one gets rejected but yeah)

    Capitalism doesn't work. Neither does communism or any system which we currently use. We need to evolve from the idea that money and profit is the end game goal which suits everyone - it clearly doesn't. We live on a planet where despite the 8billion population there is enough resources still left for everyone to lead a decent standard of life. It's shameful that we act in the way we do with regard wealth distribution and equality. Our primary focus needs to be management and allocation of resources.

    We live in an age of technology where the vast majority of jobs could and should be done by machines. The current system is nothing more than a sophisticated form of slavery designed to benefit a handful of people.

    Wars are engineered for profit alone with no thought to the destruction on the environment or the misery it inflicts on other humans.

    Religion is the biggest evil our planet has ever devised and the greatest con.

    Do your worst.

    The word "greedy" implies that bisexuals choose to be attracted to more than one gender, which just isn't true. Also, bisexuals often have preferences, so they could be 80% attracted to men and 20% attracted to women, etc. Contrary to what you seem to be implying, bisexuals aren't attracted to everyone they see - in fact, I've found that bi people tend to be more selective with regards to who they find attractive. So yeah, we're not "greedy", we just see gender in a different way.

    - Young women in modern Britain have an entitlement complex. They reckon that the world owes them something, like conversation, time, sex, attention, etc. and yep, i mention women, and not to be sexist, but because imho it's an observation/fact.

    - Black immigrants from the Caribbean/Africa, and from India, to the UK by and large contribute more positively than Pakistanis and Bangladeshis. The latter only look to sponge, and change UK society. Accept things as they are here, or get the **** out.

    - People who complain about capitalism should be forcibly denied computers, mass produced clothes, cars, well...anything that results from capitalism.

    - England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland should be barred from some international competitions, as it's a disgrace we invented many current global sports as the UK and do **** in them. Looking at you England one day cricket team....and maybe England football team...

    - America should pay native tribes $50 billion USD per year, to compensate them for their genocide. Blacks no, since genocide was never a goal.

    blue eyes would be pathologised if they were rarer. People pathologise difference all the time. Personally I would pathologise neurotypical people quite heavily.
    Expect pathology isn't measured by uniqueness or rarity....and if you're Asperger's, then it's showing by your petty vengeance lolol.

    plenty of rare things are or would be considered a disorder, e.g. if 99.9999% of people were midgets then there'd be a pathological label for the body type of what we consider regular people today. If 99.9999% of people were bipolar then in that world people who we would today consider normal would be diagnosed with some kind of emotional disorder and be seen as a robot for not having extreme fluctuating moods like normal. Even homosexuality was only removed as a pathological mental disorder by psychiatrists in the 1970s. And the reason why I'd pathologise people is well I mean it's kind of obvious, people are really so stupid and neurotic in their own ways.

    People will pathologise difference all the time, people arent very openminded and are pretty egotistical.
    But that's not the only criteria for pathologising something. If you're brainy and learned you should know that. And yes people aren't accepting most of the time, but then you clearly don't get the basis of medical diagnosis, or others' opinions lol.

    I would argue that sexual attraction to the same sex is not "atypical biological functioning". The idea that suntan types of sex between two consenting adults is 'wrong' or 'weird' is a cultural/religious construct.

    Many people experience same sex attraction to some extent during puberty, even if there sexuality then settles on only the other sex. In the last lot of research, just under 20% of women in the UK admitted to having had some form of sexual experience with another women.

    There are more gay people than there are Ginger people, I don't think the hire follicles of Ginger people are "atypical biological functioning".
    OK, so people who are born sterile are ill? Do you even know how illness is defined? Seems you and this other guy don't get this basic point, and I'm not even a doctor lolol.

    no it's true plenty of not necessarily bad things have been and are pathologised by people regularly, unless you are claiming yourself that things like homosexuality are in fact a mental illness
    Not bothered, dude.....have been? yep, by people of a different culture, era, level of technology..

    but for somebody with Asperger's perhaps your lack of understanding is showing, and you shouldn't be allowed to post in threads like this. that is MY "unpopular" opinion!

    Did not mention sterile people, we where having a debate about whether gay people are ill and he used the term about bodily functioning. I was on about how being gay is not an abnormality or anything undesirable, its just how some people are.

    If you want to start a discussion about the legal/ ethical/ biological definition of illness . I can do that.

    lolol...so i cannot make analogies, or bring in extra points into this discussion. Tell me where it's stated either here or anywhere that I cannot comment on stuff? because you're the dude? as a dyslexix person, then i strongly doubt that.

    It's not more moral to spend a tonne on public services like the NHS, pensions etc. if we just can't afford it. It only causes problems down the line when we have to start paying up and it shows serious weak-mindedness to ignore this.

    look i was just making the point that through my advocacy of the acceptance of gay people, I was by no means making a judgement on people who can not have children or how they should be categorised.

    The idea was to wind people up... Mission accomplished.

    If I actually thought that I would have backed it up in the first post
