"There is normal which is hetrosexual, 99% of the population, then there are sexual diviants. 1% made up of various others."
You pulled that number out of your ass - the sources I gave you say 8-10% homosexual is normal for both animal and human species.
"To me, the idea of two men or two women engaged in sex acts is repugnent. There is nothing anybody can say to have me accept the idea as beautiful. Beauty is after all in the eye of the beholder an I am entitled to an opinion just like everbody else."
Nobody here is saying you're "not allowed" to be homophobic - just accept the fact that you are, and we'll all move on from there.
You and I are both heterosexual. The difference between you and me is that I understand that people being different from me is "normal", and for you the whole world has to fuck just like you fuck to be considered "normal" by you.
Just like the Franti song says, it's not about "who you love", it's all about "do you love?".
"I choose women as sex partners. I don't see anything wrong or evil about that option or opinion. To each their own eh!"
Again, we're both heterosexual, but only one of us is homophobic.
"I could care less what you do with your lovers."
If you actually DID care less, you wouldn't feel the need to lable other "abnormal".
"But I don't have to invite you to social affairs, attend yours or associate with you in any way if I feel uncomfortable in your presence."
You sound just like a Southern Racist sometimes did ....
"I don't hate nigras, I just don't want any of them around me!"
"It's like disco music to me, there is something wrong with the people who listen to it."
I see. If you don't share the same taste as Chris, you're pathological. I don't know, I hate most disco, but I like a few ABBA and BeeGee songs and if I'm with the right girl ... it's sometimes fun. Does that mean there's something "wrong with me" - I think there's more of a chance there's something wrong with closed-minded bigotry (whatever the form it takes).
"And no matter how much you play rap music, it just don't appeal to me."
That makes rap music "unappealing to Chris" - not "abnormal" or "pathological".
It's like anchovies. I don't like them. Many people don't like them. But calling those few who do like them "abnormal" is kind of fuct. "Different", yes - the word contains no perjoritive meaning.
"I can't even make out the words. And I don't much care for classical or Jazz."
I guess that makes you different, or in your words "abnormal", as (I bet) your dislike of Jazz places you in the minority.
"Melancholy Blues," performed by Armstrong and his Hot Seven was included on the Voyager Golden Record sent into outer space to represent one of the greatest achievements of humanity.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Armstrong
Does that mean there's "something wrong with you"? No, it just means you're different, that's all.
"So you can send me all the free tickets to Jazz festivals. I ain't going...Boring. Same thing...invite me to a homosexual party.....I ain't going to go...Boring...nothing there for me."
I ain't going to a homo party - but I did have fun at a gay bar, once (good music to dance to). Again, just because you teach through repetition, I assume you will learn from it: Both of us are heterosexual, one of us is homophobic.
"Now if the Homosexual Club of Canada invited me to attend the annual dinner and speak about libertarian politics, I would be the first in line at the dinner table."
Mr. "homosexuals are abnormal" representing all libertarians to homosexuals? Surely we can find a better representative that you. Perhaps someone able to read (and handle) the information about animal populations being about 8 percent homosexual.
"So, my policy is each to their own rather than shun and persecute. I have no political opinions on the sexual practices of the nations citizens....as long as it's all voluntary....let it fly....."
You lend weight to those who would want to "fix" the abnormalities so that everything gets "back to normal". Through your closed-mindedness, through your "passive homophobia", you help the "activist homophobes" do their dirty work.
It's like cannabophobes helping "partnership for a drug free america" do their work by considering cannabis use "abnormal" and "pathological". Like Mayor Larry Campbell who is all for legalization but considers cannabis use inherently unhealthy - the stigma produced and perpetuated hurts the scapegoats even though "tolerance" is the policy advocated.
"I don't chum with any dominextress either. People enjoying getting whipped and hung up and all the other diviant behaviors."
Most people like a bit of spanking. Who are you to label the majority "diviant"?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erotic_spanking
"Next are the bodily fluid people. Do I have to accpet all that as just good old normal fun that I ought to get in on?"
You could see any "not-harmful-to-others" activity as "normal" and take it or leave it according to your own taste - that IS the other option you keep ignoring.
"Or can I just say no thanks without being a sadistaphopbe? Come to think of it, I'm a masochistaphobe too?"
Anything you lable as "abnormal" that doesn't involve unconsentual harm-to-others is probably stuff you're afraid you'll like if you try it. Nobody appointed you the "normalcy" cop - and deviations only become "abnormalities" if people see them as being problematic - nonproblematic deviant behavior is normal and should be seen as such.
"Man do I ever have a lot of personal short comings to get over."
Finally, we agree on something.
"I purposely avoid gamblers and boozers too."
Two examples of "non-deviant", "often-pathological" "normal" behavior.
"What an evil discriminator I am."
Bigoted, yes. It only becomes evil when you get "activist" and make public pronouncements that help activist homophobes achieve their political aims.
"But there is no persecution in any of that."
That's like Larry Campbell saying "there's no persecution with me lying about cannabis causing cancer" or some stupid thing like that - the anti-cannabis laws are based upon lies like the cancer lie, and the anti-sodomy laws are based upon lies like the "abnormal" lie.
"Now as far as behaviors go. All behaviors are chosen."
I choose to be a pothead because of the health facts and the feeling of "this feels right". Perhaps homosexuals have an innate "it just feels right" feeling that causes them to be homosexuals. Perhaps feelings and natural inclinations are PART of choice.
"There are no biological "causations" of behavior."
What about all those animals and insects who "chose" to be homosexuals - are they going on reasons or feelings?
"Man is a rational animal."
Humans are capable of BOTH reason and feeling.
"Biology has nothing to do with any of that kind of behavior."
You really, really ought to use search engines to back up what you say - I certainly will use them to point out how ridiculous your statements are.

Just the first few examples of about 12 thousand on google. I guess the world is wrong and you're right.
"Hetrosexual is the norm."
90 percent het, 10 percent homo is the norm. Grab some facts the next time you post, PLEASE.
