Let's not work in hypotheticals when talking about whether it's innate or not. It is innate.

You realize your metaphor makes absolutely no sense, right?

There are a lot of people in the United States that disagree with evolution. Does that make the fact that it happened any less true? No.

Most people thought the world was flat at one time.

Were they right?

You keep switching on what parts of dolphin facts you're using for the metaphor.

Offender for "separate but equal," proven ineffective.

Dolphins and fish are completely different species.

Homosexuals and heterosexuals are the same species.

It doesn't get any plainer than that. And I maintain that it is offensive to put forth a metaphor that essentially claims that the differences between homosexuality and heterosexuality are as significant as the differences between dolphins and fish.

Diamond, what is so terrible about changing the definition of a word, in your opinion?

Yes, but most ignorant people believe that dolphins are fish, however educated people agree that they are superior.

Now, if I said that gay unions were were like comparing burros to pure bred horses-you'd have a right to be angry.

I actually elevated gay unions by saying that they deserved the same respect as marriages-and not to change their meaning which is :a matrimonial union between a same sex cpl.
