when did all this happen?


Since the establishment of modern society. Maybe even before that, I don't know.

when does all of this "antigay campaign" stuff happen?


When a bigoted group of misdirected and otherwise ignorant people attack or sometimes scapegoat gay people.

I don't know, do you? Seems like a waste of a post, especially considering the fact that you prompted a response.

Clearly we all need to, or else we wouldn't be contributing to this thread.

If you want. No one, frankly, cares if you do or not...so you can cut it out with the conceited persona of self-importance.

Show some respect.


But you don't need to? (i.e. Homosexuality thread and Atheism v Theism thread)

No Homophobe will ever admit to being a homophobe.

Nah, if i were a homophobe that would mean that i'm afraid of 'em, but really i just can't stand them.

Let's please stick to any arguments on offer or at least the relevant subject matter. This back and forth has to stop.

Agreed.

The boy scout thing is pointless now they are a LOT less popular than they were 50 years ago. Camping, hiking, backpacking, shooting, hunting, woodscrafts, fieldcraft, etc. are a LOT less available. And even those who do many of those things find they are much easier/less painful to do because of advances in technology (cellphones, GPS, better insulated clothing, sleeping bags, water proof tents, etc). Part of becoming a man is learning to "suck it up" and not complain when in difficult circumstances.

Nevertheless they are a large group pushing an antigay campaign.

Ah yes, who doesn't love some good old gender roles.

To get back on track, I'd like to present a prompt.

Homosexuality's naturalism is often debated. Some believe homosexuality is natural because it occurs without deliberate interference or insinuation. Others believe it is unnatural because they believe each sex was intended for the other, it is not functional for reproduction, or religious beliefs. Of course, this is a broad generalization, so do not limit yourself to the reasons listed.

Using the prompt above, answer the following questions:
a. Which side do you support, if any? Why?
b. Are there any semantic differences involved? If so, what difference(s) do they make?
c. How does the prompt relate to the thread topic?

I would say this is inaccurate as it's not just used or functional for reproduction. As for the religious beliefs, my level of expressed empathy towards the statements of the various belief systems in this regard is on par with the gluteus maximus of a small mammal within the rodentia order.

This is true, which is why I said,

But it was good of you to mention that. Sexual activity can also be used for stress release, exercise, fun, psychological relations, and more things I am forgetting.
