I believe Gay Marriage should be legal, because making it illegal would be unethical.

I am going to argue that Gay marriage should be illegal because it is unnatural.

PROOF BEING GAY IS UNNATURAL: likes NEVER attract except in humans. This is based off of the fact that like charges and poles NEVER EVER attract in electromagnetism; one of the fundamental forces.

Therefore gay marriage should be illegal.

I'm glad my challenge was excepted.

"likes NEVER attract except in humans"

I shall dispute this claim by pointing out that this is a common occurrence in the animal kingdom. I shall post a list of animals that have exhibited homosexual behaviors.

Giraffes. Interesting first choice be me because scientist state that more Giraffes exhibit homosexual behavior then giraffes that exhibit heterosexual behavior.

Bulls and Rams. Farmers often come across Bulls and Rams which refuse to mate with the opposite sex.

Mallards. 19% of Mallards are homosexual pairs in the wild.

Pigeons. Both Male and Female Pigeons have shown signs of homosexuality. Females will sometimes lay infertile eggs in an attempt to raise children with another female pigeon.

African Lion. The big Cat. 8% have mounted other Lions.

King Penguins. Also common to find Homosexuals among their ranking.

Peter Boeckman, the Acadamic Advisor for the University of Oslo was quoted saying "One fundamental premise in social debates has been that homosexuality is unnatural. This premise is wrong. Homosexuality is both common and highly essential in the lives of a number of species,"

Did you know the Dwarf Chimpanzee's entire population is Bisexual? This was an evolutionary trait that helped relieve violence among families.

It is even seen among Dolphins and Killer Whales.

(1) Over 1500 animal species have been documented exhibiting homosexual behavior.

Now onto your second point on Electromagnetism. Explain to me how Electromagnetism is a factor in sexual preference because I am no Physicist, so I don't see what your point is.

Now lets say Hypothetically; this is a big if; Homosexuality was a choice. Should it still be illegal? What reasons would you have against it?

I eagerly await your response.

I concede; there are no real reasons to ban it other than personal opinion, religion, or tradition which aren't valid reasons for this debate.

JustAlfey just posted what I was thinking. Homosexuality exists in many types of animals, including chimpanzees, our cousin species.

No; I am not playing devils advocate. Also it is not supposed to have been interpreted as offensive; it shouldn't anyway since that statement is true; nowhere in the universe do we see likes attract except in humans.

I do not mean just offensive, but your claim that likes do not attract except in humans. Are you playing devil's advocate on this debate?
