Is it therefore fair to describe homosexuality as abnormal.
Of course, Technology negates the fundamentality of reproduction. So I would therefore assert that this is would seem to be an evolutionary certainty. Are evolutionary certainties therefore better defining principles than temporary conceptualities?
Though concepts, Intangible as they are, Are real enough to the conceiver and as far as we know that is really all that matters. So where does the notion of abnormality lie within a constant confusion of collective thoughts and evolutionary certainty.
I would propose that the realism of conceptuality is enough to affirm an individual judgement, Despite any weight of opposition. Therefore realistically rendering abnormality and/or normality for that matter, As not being truly definable.

What is normal? I f by normal you mean antural, Then the question isn't can homosexuals reproduce, Thats not why gays do it. Another question to determine whether it is "normal" is to investigate whether and to what extent it occur in nature? Homosexuality pre dates the bible so its been around since day one. Are there gay animals, Do homosexual encounters occur in the world of the animals? No species has been found in which homosexual behaviour has not been shown to exist, With the exception of species that never have sex at all, Such as sea urchins and aphis. Moreover, A part of the animal kingdom is hermaphroditic, Truly bisexual. For them, homosexuality is not an issue.

Hello. Nice to debate with you.

Though you appear to have taken the Con side of the debate.

Pro should attempt to uphold the proposition that implies that it's fair to regard homosexuality as abnormal.

My apologies if the wording of the proposition may have confused you.
