You have successfully avoided all the questions I asked to clarify your position and my main talking points. I've stated my thoughts on the subject a few pages back; so feel free to read it.

I've never heard anyone propose abolishing heterosexuality.

As I see it, many simply don't believe exclusive orientations would necessarily be prominent if heteronormativity was not socially...

I find it perfectly valid to question anyone that uncritically absorbs these prevalent social expectations (concerning sexuality and identity). Often there is the prejudicial danger of generalizing....

It would seem that you are the one reducing humans to "barnyard animals." I didn't pick a partner to procreate and I know many other people that likewise, never plan on reproducing. "Courtship," how...

Indeed, I would be suspicious of anyone that stands up to say I'm not prejudiced! However, that's a bit different than saying everyone is prejudiced, or accepting this. I see no reason to believe in...

Actually, I disagree. Trans-phobic people of any variety, avoiding someone, has that exact effect. To be fair, this thread asked if you would date a trans person, and to many people this means the...

I do think this thread gets down to it. Sexuality for many self-identified straight men is a walk down the isle at Walmart; all the goods should be clearly marked and on display. What's a...
