I cannot believe how ignorant some people are as to think people would choose to belong to an ostracized, discriminated against group.  It is really laughable that people are that braindead.

Are pedophiles born that way sparkles? Or do you believe that "would choose to belong to an ostracized, discriminated against group? It is really laughable that people are that braindead."

What an easy question.  They clearly don't have a choice because they are obviously demon-possessed.  Silly guys...

Are mass murderers that way by choice or are they born that way?  Are cleptomanicaics that way by choice or are they born that way?  Are child molesters that way by choice or are they born that way?  Shall we excuse everything and make it acceptable by tagging it as hereditary?

Nature vs. nurture right?  I would suggest that child molesters, and mass murderers are the product of abuse or neglect.  I'm not excusing the behavior, just saying those people are made into monsters, not born that way.  Homosexuality is not a choice, you're either born that way or not.
We are the storm.

You are showing you absolute prejudice and ignorance there again Vag/Tight_a$$.  Comparing homosexuality, which is between consenting adults to pedophilia.  That is usually what whacked out right wing homophobes usually do.  You completely lose any credibility you may have had (not that you had much if any) when you pull that card. :roll:

PWND?

How can you call that PWND Jimmy, when it is the typical right wing whacked out homophobic response to any issue of homosexual rights.  To try to compare homosexuality, which is clearly not a choice and is between consenting adults to pedophilia which is a crime against defenseless children is completely asinine and you make yourself look as stupid as they do whan you make a post saying pwnd.  I did not know you were that ignorant or does that ? after it imply you are not so sure? :roll:

buck, who I do not agree with often, is 100 % spot on here.

Actually the 2 guy individuals are both victims,  They suffer tremendous damage mentally, physically,and emotionally.  It is a horrible and destructive thing to do to one's self.

You and I and all of society are the victims here.  We pay up the kazoo for this destructive practice.

What a laugh, the crazy texas coach cannot make an intelligent argument so he makes up nonsense with no backup.  First off, two consenting adults are doing no damage to themselves.  Secondly I am not, nor is society a victim in any way.  We pay in no way.  More nonsense in any way.
