I think being gay is an illness, they are gay for a reason. Maybe he or she was abused or had a problem in his/her childhood, its not normal.

Being gay is perfectly normal. Everyone is unique and that is normal, because EVERYONE is different. Just because someone is different from you doesn't mean that they are abnormal. I intend to make my case for why being gay is normal throughout this debate.

And just an FYI, I don't hate gays or lesbians, I respect all humans equally and only judge them based off their actions and the way they behave, not by how they look or who they are attracted to.

But the truth of the reality of this matter must be known, it is better to accept the truth than swim around falsehood. Accepting the truth will help bring solutions, whereas swimming around falsehood will deceive you and make you think everything is fine and dandy until the problems become too much of a heavy burden upon us.

In order to accept the truth, one must have an open mind and think rationally and logically. May it be known, the truth can hurt at times, but the more open your mind is, the less it'll hurt.

Having a homosexual orientation (being attracted to the same gender as yourself) is clearly not normal. Let us replace the word 'normal' with 'natural', because it is better understood.

The natural sexual orientation is heterosexuality, nature has created two genders within humanity, male and female, and why? To reproduce and procreate. This is one basic essential necessity that is NEEDED for a species to survive, to continue the life of a species for as long as possible.

Homosexuality completely goes against this, therefore it is not natural at all. The case with homosexuality (being attracted to the same gender), is all based off a state of mind of attraction. All it has to do is with the brain tampered with environmental and societal factors and probably a mix of genetic errors, however, there are no true scientific facts about this, but so far this seems the most likely of whatever causes humans to be attracted to their own gender.

We don't have to go far to prove that being attracted to the same gender is not natural, it simply isn't. Male is supposed to go with female, male is not supposed to go with male, and neither is female with a female. What purpose is being achieved by this, if any? We are not talking about emotions here either.

Think rationally and logically, homosexuality is only a state of mind of attraction, and nothing more.

When a baby is first born, their minds are gullible and suspectable to many things. If a child is grown in a bad society that puts a bad influence upon them, they most likely will be integrated into that type of society.

With homosexuality it is almost the same thing, when certain influences from society and the environment trigger the growing minds of a child, things like this will happen.

Let's take this a step further, is a human being attracted to a dog 'normal' and 'natural' as well?

Exactly.

To be gay, actually is all dependent on the balance of hormones. They're born that way. Mainly, girls have more estrogen and boys have more testosterone but both genders have both of them. Gay people are just people whose hormones are unbalanced enough for them to have the mindset of the opposite gender. For example, bisexual people's hormones are in the middle so they like both genders. However, there are people out there who pretend to be any of these to get attention.
