    Are those the only options?

    I vote yes, because I think it's only right that gay people should have the right to suffer the same misery as everyone else.

    Of course, I forgot about the other alternative you had left: being unreasonable.

    You could argue that technological progress is natural to humans as man has always fought to dominate his natural environment.

    You could argue that using a computer to play a pointless Facebook game has nothing to do with dominating nature.

    As of right now, it's legal here.

    I said no.

    But, I was wrong.

    It's not directly genetic; like many things that are accredited to genetics, it's actually hormonal applied during available development windows. "Genetics" is not a magic formula, it's merely a script that might naturally produce varied results during development depending on environmental factors.

    And, while I haven't read all of your ongoing convo with Nico and others, I'll note the behavior is observable and thus instinctive in a number of species, including primates.


    Sadly as it may be, society were more forgiving and acceptive of Elmo's dislike of pronouns and fondness of using illeism than his improper sexual relations.
    That wasn't Elmo, that was the man wielding him.

    And the issue was that his paramours were underage, not that they were the same gender.

    First of all, interesting analogy [insert Freudian chin rub here].

    Secondly, why isn't it commercial fishermen swiping fish from whales? Whales were here first, after all (both sperm and other varieties are available). Are whales more or less natural than man? Their fishing methods are both more "natural" and sustainable, so surely they have the prior claim? Aren't commercial fishing boats a violation of nature (in every sense)? Shouldn't we therefore outlaw them? We can eat land animals, we have no need to go to sea. The sea is not our natural habitat. You don't see whales coming ashore to fish for men. Does that make the whale a more moral animal, sticking as it does with what nature has provided?

    Contraception also goes against nature's plan, should we outlaw that too?

    You cannot argue for Nature only when it aligns with your own prejudices, or else you risk looking inconsistent, at best.

    As for "normal" this has no meaning other than common. Are you really trying to suggest that something is more elevated simply because it is common? Where does that leave INTPs? Should they not be allowed to marry because they are uncommon? (As opposed to just being generally undesirable)

    Stop stealing all the fish, there's enough to go around.

    Yeah, I think so. I'm pretty sure that anything else is actually reducible to one of those two common denominators.

    I suppose a third option would be to not get into people's business, but that's like a joke. It'll never happen.

    Also why is the forum not notifying me of quotes again?

    Edit:
    and really the difference seems to be that privilege has limitation as the default stance and can be revoked, while a right on the other hand has limitation as the exceptional stance.

    It's like 'if' vs. 'unless'. The exclusion comes in from different sides.
