I love how from time to time dear Scott pulls one on the readers. The bait is so obvious, yet there is always a bunch who will bite and rage. "I will go do gay things" come on, people.
Special mention for the sad few wo apparently are the voice of the Great Majority (they always are, they always will ennounce their biases as "we, the people"). Sorry to break it to you, fundies, but the Great Majority does not actually care, never has and never will aside for a "hey, guess who is gay, yay/eww" moment of gossiping. Some people are gay, most gays are people, deal with it.
Finally, do you get that, being the characters who they all, they all could be gay and it would not matter? The have no amorous or social life anyway!

You are absolutely right that social behaviour is learned.
But you are absolutely wrong in your assumption that sexuality is a facet of social behaviour.

Acting or not upon the impulses that are driven by ones sexuality can be 'controlled' by learned social behaviour, and I think that's where you are confused.

Being a gay guy is not a choice, but whether to partake in homosexual sex acts is.

It is sad that such a post got so many thumbs-up without anyone picking up on its flaw.

@free_flyer: From what I understand the ruling essntially says "courts don't make laws, that's up to the parliament" so that's why they overruled the previous decision. Is that right ?

Ah, Scott... It might have been better to set up a pro-jihad character. Office humor and the constant daily irrational arguments in regards to religion, sex or government make for extreme hypersensitivity and few, if any laughs.

The fact that anyone is gay, given the level of indoctrination that occurs in most societies to be a "normal" man or a "normal" woman and behave in a certain way, dress in a certain way and love in a certain way, this suggests to me that gayness is not a choice but is something people are predisposed to being. Whether that is genetic, epigenetic or hormonal I have no idea but it is a constant across all societies and therefore "natural". Making it illegal will have no impact on the numbers or the practice just as the war on drugs has no impact on the number of users.
