Well if it is not normal then it has to be abnormal. I don't think many would agree with that, I hope.thedoc wrote:Hobbes' Choice wrote: Fact is that homosexuality is now considered normal, as once it was not. This has precious little effect on the survival of humanity. Homosexuality is perfectly natural, if rare. At least rare enough for it not to have any significant affect on the propagation of the species, and is found in many species of mammal.
I think I would suggest that "normal" is not the correct word and "accepted" is more in keeping with attitudes of some people. I'm not sure how many people, outside the homosexual community, would consider it normal. I would also add that in ancient Greece, homosexuality was more accepted than in other places in the world, but then I am not as familiar with ancient history world wide. Perhaps someone knows of other areas where homosexuality was practiced and somewhat accepted.
I suppose you would have to define normal first.
Is wearing fake nails normal? Fewer people wear fake nails than are homosexual. Is being a fashion model or pop star normal?
There are more gay people in the UK that Pop stars. So what is normal?
