    Sometimes people forget that people too are part of nature so anything we do is natural.

    Define natural! I don't think homosexuality is something people try to develop or do so artifically. Whether, in an environment where all other influencing factors were neutral, homosexuality would still occur, I don't know. But the fact is that we don't live in such an environment so we have to talk about what is "natural" in context of the millions of factors which might influence a tendency towards homosexuality - family, upbringing, society's values, etc - and consider that in themselves, they are natural. That's my analysis anyway.

    Okay well if that is nature then whether it happens in nature is a stupid question, i mean why does it even matter what animals and plants do?

    Are you even reading it? We too are included in nature? Do you suggest humans are not natural? I'm talking about whether homosexuality in humans is natural.

    "Natural" is a subjective word. However, homosexuality appears throughout nature (if one considers studies on homosexuality in other species).

    Even if this thread gets to page 12 and it is concluded that homosexuality is not natural, what is wrong with unnatural things? The computer you are typing on, and which benefits so many aspects of your life, can be considered unnatural.

    So, there is nothing inherently wrong with something being "natural" or "unnatural" and the definitions of these terms is subjective. It's therefore a pointless debate to have.

    Really? This has been done so many times. Hasn't TSR gotten past this point? Who care's if its 'natural'? Something being natural is completely irrelevant to its value, merit, worth, or whatever you want to call it.

    Oh? So it's artificial then? I'm genuinely curious, how do two totally straight parents create a homosexual child?

    Homosexuality is natural in that it occurs in nature. Just ask bonobos.

    Antibiotics, religion and the Internet are not natural, yet those who claim homosexuality is unnatural have no problem with such things.

    And yet she chooses to have heterosexual parents birth a child who innately "goes" with people of the same sex?
