I disqualified you not because you lack a degree or expertise, but because you didn't draw your conclusion from the evience available BY experts who study this type of behavior and have for years. In fact the only way people are able to conclude gay people are mental cases by default is by IGNORING the body of evidence gathered over 30 years, the official position of the APA, and any other facts that clash with preconcieved notions.
My perspective is supported by reality, studies, experience, and reasoned thought. Though it is a conclusion that does make some cognitive leaps to arrive there, I admit. So reality begins at what's real, and that is what I use to support my position at it's core.
