How does a sexual homosexual relationship negatively harm others?
And there's something called the prostate gland (I suggest you look it up) that acts as, more than anything, a "g-spot" for men. The only way to reach it? Through the anus. So really, when two men are acting in sexual intercourse, the anus is the best way for the other man to, well, reach orgasm.
--
It's like saying being in a relationship (heterosexual) with another and having unprotected sex is "dangerous" because one or the other might have an STD/STI. Is it harmful if neither have any diseases and use protection? No. Is it harmful if they just use protection? In most cases, no. So using the argument "it's harmful" isn't a good one.

I'd also like to add, two guys not making out all over doesn't mean they're not in a relationship. You could say the same for two heterosexuals; a woman and a man just "hanging out". Even though they're in a relationship; they're not currently kissing, so they MUST just be "hanging out", right?
I also think it's funny how you only bring up male homosexuality.

"You can say that two men can be in a homosexual relationship and not be sexual, but it isn't homosexual then."
HAH! Are you serious? A lot of homosexual men don't participate in sex. They're still gay. They think guys are attractive and girls are not. They'd still kiss their partner. You're an absolute twat if you think someone can only be gay if they do anal.

While a homosexual relationship may not harm those outside of the relationship, in the case of a male homosexual couple, it physically harms them. You can say that two men can be in a homosexual relationship and not be sexual, but it isn't homosexual then. It would just be two guys hanging out. When sexual actions occur between two men, it is physically harmful.

To be honest, one of the biggest problems with homosexuality (mostly male homosexuality) is Anal. It's not natural and spreads disease and harms the giver and reciever.

Sexual perversion is not a mental disorder, its a lack of character, restraint, and absence of moral decency. Defined by self absorption, irresponsible behaviors at the expense of others welfare.

So is it all transgender, most transgender, all the transgender I have met so far or is it just a generalisation?
