Hey, yo. I know this forum is dead and all, but if you see this message, you're alive. Congratulations!
I'm running a video game music guessing contest, cross-site. Probably 30 songs, with scoring and a prize, possibly prizes. Song clips will be 30 seconds in length, and will range in difficulty. It will not be an active participation game, like Werewolf or the old trivia games, so keeping up activity won't be an issue. Let me know you're interested in this thread, through PMs, or in the Hnet IRC chat, which is alive and well, and a good place to pick up hot singles for only 99 cents per minute.

Posting in a locked topic, but I believe it's important to express exactly where and why this argument is flawed. Telling someone that they're a douchebag for holding to values and principles they believe to be right isn't going to change their mind.
Sexuality isn't the right word here (the bolded), despite the term for the actual preference of partner being homosexuality, because it incorrectly suggests that sexual intercourse needs to be involved in the discussion. To be homosexual is to be attracted to people of the same sex as you, whether that's for love or sexual intercourse or physical intimacy or a combination thereof. Any argument about sex or the "purpose" of sex ignores the much simpler fundamental human truth that people cannot and do not choose their feelings or emotions.
Of course, the argument of "it's not the societal norm and therefore I can't condone it" is inherently vapid and suggests a basic inability to think in anyone who utters it, but you can have the benefit of the doubt from me regardless.
There are plenty of gay people who find anal sex unpleasant, or don't engage in it for various personal reasons. Being born gay leaves you minus one option for intimacy with your partner, you know? Which is unfortunate for those who don't indulge, although most of those who don't still find contentment with their level of intimacy with their partner(s). Personally I add options daily.
