ND, I think we need to bring Hulkster back so that you can get your kicks. I feel like your having e-fight withdrawals since the truce thread died.

This. ND takes things way too seriously.

again you use the word trivial, if it is so trivial why do you think those who push the gay agenda are having such a hard time admitting it?

look at this thread magoo and understand that those who push the GLBT agenda do not agree with the fact that homosexuality is abnormal.



Maybe they have a hard time in their minds separating biological (descriptive) from normative systems (law, morality)? I don't know. As I've said many times in this thread, I'll gladly accept your point. But I will obviously accept nothing beyond that (because no implications follow from it). Homosexuality is biologically abnormal. Homosexual marriages are protected by a proper interpretation of constitutional law. The morality of homosexuality is not necessarily related to the biological or the constitutional aspect. Choice is irrelevant (my positions hold either way). Nothing inconsistent here.

No, playing a musical instrument at a high level is not abnormal behavior.  You're confusing extraordinary or exceptional behavior with abnormal behavior.  Not the same.  

The choice thing matters in this thread, because Tony made it the subject of the thread.  Nothing wrong with talking about it.  

what Tony said had nothing to do with choice directly. He talked about behaviors (actions) that are biologically abnormal (not the 'default' human behavior).  Choice has no role to play here (some abnormal behaviors are 'chosen' and some are not, and some are in between). It is not the default human behavior to play a musical instrument at a high level. (feel free to add in stuff about how it's not necessary for the reproduction of the human species, etc.). Therefore, being able to play a musical instrument (and all the other stuff I've mentioned as examples) at a high level is abnormal human behavior.

You're on the verge of going Aquinas here and start talking about the "purpose" of humans. That is not what Tony was talking about. Like he said, he was giving only a biological argument. Everything else, like choice, freedom, social norms, morality, constitutional law, anti-discrimination law, state law, etc. does not belong anywhere in this thread.
15  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Will liberals admit the default sexual orientation for humans =heterosexual? on: April 02, 2013, 06:21:14 PM
The fact there are very few homosexuals in the human population isn't what makes the behavior abnormal.  It's the act itself, whether it's done by 1 or 10 percent of the population.   

But should it have a bearing?  Probably, because other than religion, we have not given lifestyle choices the same protection as race, color, etc.  Not saying lifestyle choices are not entitled to protection.  Just that the analysis is different.  Or at least it should be. 

But like I said, moot point.  Except for discussion boards.   Smiley

So modding getbig.com is an abnormal behavior then. So is playing in the New York philharmonic. These are abnormal behaviors (using the criteria set out by Tony in this thread, with which I agreed (but said was trivial)). The "choice" thing does not matter in this thread and is not related to this thread topic. This thread is purely sociological (descriptive). Many actions are abnormal behaviors under this rule. Reading this specific post is a more abnormal behavior than homosexuality (probably less than 20 humans will ever do it). Once again: So what?
16  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Will liberals admit the default sexual orientation for humans =heterosexual? on: April 02, 2013, 06:03:50 PM
Tony is correct.  Takes a degree of intellectual dishonesty to argue that heterosexual behavior isn't the normal behavior for humans.  Of course it is.  

I agree. Being a Mod on Getbig is more abnormal than homosexuality. This thread has no bearings on public policy, discrimination laws, constitutional law, morality, social norms, etc. It is merely stating a (trivial) fact: (Very) few people are homosexuals.
17  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Will liberals admit the default sexual orientation for humans =heterosexual? on: March 31, 2013, 12:53:10 PM
"normal" shouldnt be in quotations LOL

again normality in terms of statistics and biology isnt subjective, if your stance is that homosexuality isnt a choice its biological then there is no room for the subjective view of normal.

If you look at it as a choice, then you can say its normal but biologically it is abnormal.

So homosexuality, religion, monogamy, basketball skills, musical talents, etc. are biologically abnormal (according to your definition in this thread).

What's your point? No matter how much they show each on TV, radio, internet, that will do nothing to affect its biological abnormal-ness? To me, this thread is a waste of time spewing out trivially true statements as if they were nuggets of wisdom with implications for public debate.
18  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Will liberals admit the default sexual orientation for humans =heterosexual? on: March 30, 2013, 06:06:54 PM
Are you saying we shouldn't make anything out of the norm legal?

I think that's what he meant (or that we should make anything out of the norm illegal).

He's made this point before but I'm still not sure what it is. I think he's only trying to say that few people are homosexuals. Last time I replied "Not many people are violinists, so what?"

It seems to be a trivially true statement with no implications whatsoever.
19  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Will liberals admit the default sexual orientation for humans =heterosexual? on: March 30, 2013, 01:10:44 PM
from a biological view point whats the default sexual orientation for a species that requires two opposite sex partners to procreate?

this isnt a moral or constitutional question this is a biological question..........

quit trying to act smart

why are you asking a biological question on the politics board?

But why are you assuming that biological "default" should be the standard for society? Some have argued (Aristotle, famously) that slavery is biologically 'default', but that obviously shouldn't guide public policy; so you need an argument for why this particular aspect of biological nature should be a guide for public policy.

If, however, you are merely trying to say "most humans are not homosexuals" or "near all humans are not homosexual" as a biological statement, then it seems trivially true. So what's your point?

default means default....

and why cant you guys just answer the facking question?

Your question makes no sense whatsoever from a moral viewpoint.

From a constitutional law viewpoint, it is irrelevant.

What do you mean by "default" and why does it matter?

deserves to be much more known that it is. Instead of Wittgenstein's "family resemblance" regarding games, Suits sets out to give a definition. I'm about 1/3 through the book.
