I'm not superstitious in the least bit. Homosexuality does exist in the animal kingdom as well, and it is the exception, not the rule. It doesn't benefit the species and in fact would imperil populations should it become the norm.Its not that its anecdotal that matters, though it very much is. Its a matter of correlation and causation. If the percentage of lgbt community on mental health medications is higher than the rest of the population, that doesn't mean their sexual preferences are either a symptom or cause of mental illness. Drownings go up when ice cream sales are high, but that doesn't mean ice cream sales are drowning people. Mental illness typically arises in individuals genetically predisposed to it who then have it activated by factors in their environment.
If mental health incidence rates are higher in the lgbt population, the conclusion is people should quit caring who consenting adults sleep with and treat everyonewith respect. I'm hearing a lot of people use religion as the basis for their hate while conveniently forgetting about the golden rule. Some people need to go read about the Pharisees and Jesus' opinion of those who cling to religious tradition instead of embracing their fellow man.
Those acts ain't right, no matter how you slice it. Yes, grown adults ought to be free to do what they want as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else.
Pretending this crap is normal doesn't make it so, religion has zero to do with my opinion on it.
