How Gays and Women Get In Their Own Way

Katie, "I think that gays and women should strive for equality—not social acceptance...." Good column. The comment above is the reason so many heterosexuals oppose gays, not because of their chosen sexual orientation.

There's no such thing as a "chosen sexual orientation." There are only abnormal sexual preferences which are not chosen per se but can be chosen to be addressed.

Really. So what's 'abnormal'? Is it just same sex or anal sex altogether? Who gets to decide what sex is authorized?

God decided that opposite sexes were made to work together. The very design of the human body testifies to this. Whatever else may or may not be considered normal vs. abnormal, same-sexual activity is definitely abnormal.

I think we're on the same page. "sexual preference" is a "chosen sexual orientation". Choosing to describe oneself as gay is to say that they have chosen to placate the sexual preferences of that orientation.

Gays can be leaders. Women can be leaders. Without realizing it, I think gays and women inadvertently work against their own objective of equality when they force private organizations to support gay and female leaders.

As I wrote here, gays and women are already equal before the Constitution, which defines us by our humanity, not by our sexuality, and is silent on most personal matters like marriage. Furthermore, the more the federal government defines our rights, the less free, equal and human we all become.

Here is what generally happens when minority groups confuse social acceptance with equality...
