  1. Yeah, I've had some difficulty finding the cause. Will give it another go tonight.

    Forum update

    The old "new posts" box caused a javascript error on the front page, leaving it not updating. I'll have some time to look into that tomorrow, so I'll give it a go.

    That plugin seems to have broken on this forum version. Will look into that.

    Forum update

    Hi guys, Just a quick headsup that the forum is being updated (as I'm typing this message). After that, we'll be on pretty much the same forum, but here's what's changed:
  6. And I would like to reiterate what Doro said earlier: words like "genetic anomaly" or "mental disorder" are loaded with negative, but when objectively viewed are really just differences from what we consider "the norm". Dammit. Never thought the day would come that I basically agree with what Doro says
  7. Completely true. I would just prefer to use that term in discussions like this. I find that opponents of homosexuality typically use it in a negative way and I prefer not to be associated with that lot. Personally, I don't care what someone's sexual preference is and in discussions like this I think I would like to be described as "anti-opponent", rather than proponent. Purely biologically speaking, human homosexuality is abnormal compared to homosexuality in other species. The leap to mental disorders is a bit too far, though an argument could be made that homosexuals are mentally different in one aspect: "we" are exclusively homosexual, other animals are not. That is a mental "choice" (for lack of a better word), not a physical difference.
  8. I think the abnormality of human homosexuality is best illustrated by humans being the only known species to be exclusively homosexual. Animals might engage in homosexuality one day and be "straight" the day after. Of course, there are humans who do this.. You are (sadly) probably right.
  9. True. However, in Usain's case, "not normal" hasn't been used by bible-thumping idiots to discriminate against fast runners. That's why "not normal" in this particular topic has a double meaning. It is norm for a good portion of the animal kingdom. Though that does not mean that a species engaging in homosexuality will have a large portion of it's members being exclusively gay, it is fairly common to see members of those species have sex with both same and opposite sex. That the development of society has altered our view of what is acceptable does not mean that society's view on all those things are right. For example, a few decades ago, it was considered not normal for women to work, or (in the US) for african americans to vote. In those cases, society (save a few groups) have reconsidered and concluded that their view was wrong.
  10. Wouldn't "different" be a better word than "not normal"? The latter has a rather nasty innuendo. I would actually state that homosexuality is normal, as it is widespread throughout the animal kingdom. Over 1500 species have been observed doing so. And with a part of the animal kingdom being hermaphrodites, well.. That there's a good bunch of humans who find it abnormal says more about them than about homosexuality.
  11. Well, there's idiots in every major religion, just as there are idiot atheists. I think we can all agree a minority of muslims are really causing a stink in the world with their bombings, shootings, beheadings and whatnot. However, remember that the same is done by christians (bombing abortion clinics anyone?). I won't even get started on the jews in israel with their actions against the Palestinians. Can we get this topic back to the Paris shooting and following events, not just randomly bashing muslims?
  12. Laurinaohtar: play nice. Or no cookies for you!

    As eloquently written as ever. I'm sure you don't mean to say that what happened to her has no meaning or value. Rape is a problem in any country, and it is a horrible act. Having said that, I must agree with what Doro is attempting to say; I'm very sorry this happened to you and your friends, but it is a little off-topic. Now, can we get back to playing nice everyone? Please?
  14. Okay, this escalated quickly. Time to close this topic. OP: No one here is trying to say you're constantly demanding help. They were asking examples of what you find rude behaviour. Replying with "fuck you" would count as such. Please try to calm down a little in a new topic.
  15. Then please consider it a favor to me to try and not use words like those lightly.
  16. Yeah, this month's ad earnings would buy me food for at least five days
  17. Fortunately, this site isn't for the money. If it were, I am doing it wrong
  18. Well, I'm sure all of you have figured out by now that this website is merely a front for a combined CIA/NSA taskforce aimed at finding dissidents in the online gaming world, so I wouldn't exactly call all of his claims rubbish. That was hard enough to type up without laughing btw..
