This debate is about how male homosexuality is unnatural and wrong in my opinion not just relationship wise but sex wise reason being that our penises are not meant to go in anywhere ecxept the female vagina witch also leads me to think that male homosexuality could be linked to mental illness thats my first round let me here yours whoever my debating oppenent may be

I will offer the definition of "natural" as, "Existing in or formed by nature (opposed to artificial)1." My first point demonstrating that male homosexuality is natural will be based upon the observation of homosexual behaviour in nature. Homosexuality has been observed in "more than 1,500 animal species" belonging to various groups of the Animal Kingdom2. Thus, male homosexuality does in fact exist in nature outside of the influence of human society.

I would also like to add that Homosexuals are to blame for variuose diseases such as AIDS not to mention the gay lifestyle is very self destructive to the human body, oh and humans have a much more developed brain that can make choices unlike any animal..... Its against human nature to be gay in my opinion

None of my opponent's claims have anything to do with the resolution, nor are they substantiated. We are not talking about "human nature." The resolution clearly states that this debate is over whether or not "male homosexuality is unnatural."

In addition, being natural does not mean that it is necessarily good or bad. I am not arguing that homosexuality is good (although it can sometimes be advantageous to some species3) but rather that it exists or is formed in nature.

Thank you for the debate.

With my opponent's concession, as well as the fact that my evidenced claim of homosexuality being prevalent throughout nature went unchallenged, I will conclude with no further arguments.

I took this debate as seriously as I could. With the character limt at 500, there isn't a whole lot you can do. I thought it would be good practice for being able to debate as clearly and as concisely as possible however, which is one reason why I accepted the challenge.

Was this supposed to be a real debate, or was it just meant to feed the three debate minimum for DDO voting rights? In any case, it was lame.

Reasons for voting decision: Favorite quote: "the female vagina witch." I can't think which story she belongs in, but S&G to Con. Pro had the burden of proof, but never attempted to prove anything.
