When someone references "Soros" you pretty much know you can discount what they have to say, IMHO.

You just need to do better research then. I pretty much do political analysis for a living.

A good start for you would be a candid 20/20 interview of george soros done in the 90's (avail on youtube) that describes his political involvement overseas - by the time they visit another government project of his, Haiti, he is joined up by a then certain former first lady ...

I think you lost all credibility when you referred to the President as "Obummer". Not only is that childish and insulting, it's also homophobic. But whatever.

I hate obummer - everything he stands for is rotten and evil. I penned the name obummer because after he were first elected, I was actually depressed for the whole week (and I don't get emotionally affected by such things) BUT I knew, like a death row inmate on the day of his execution, that things were taking a turn for the worse.

He never should have been able to be elected in this country and there was a lot of behind the scenes quasi-criminal collusion with multiple organizations that had to take place to get him elected.

You attributing sexuality to my pet name for obummer only exposes you're own perversions, not mine.

I highly doubt you were the one who coined the term "Obummer". However, I don't see how the term is homophobic. On the other hand, the fact that you ascribe "perversions" to people who challenge you are telling.

That's besides the conspiracy theories, which seem to be having a big day on Metro Jacksonville today.
And apparently in the national news, and Trump's press conference, and within the national intelligence agencies, which Trump accused of conspiring to leak the stories.
And now abide faith, hope and love; these three, but the greatest of these is love

I don't consider homosexuality to be a perversion. Do you?

Where I come from, the word 'bummer' carries a certain meaning when it is applied to a person. You may have not meant that. But one thing is for sure - you probably didn't coin the name.

I find it hard to understand how someone could actually 'hate' Obama. I am not a fan of his AT ALL. But I don't hate the man. Your vitriol leads me to think you're probably deluded.

The word 'bummer' is slang for homosexual. But then it occurred to me (after posting) that it may be a British term. I am usually good at keeping my cultures straight (no pun intended), but after a decade, I do slip up sometimes.

From American Heritage Dictionary ...

 per•ver•sion (pər-vûrˈzhən, -shən)

    n. The act of perverting.
    n. The state of being perverted.
    n.  A sexual practice or act considered abnormal or deviant.

Homosexuality is abnormal sexual behavior so yeah, perversion is the correct term.

I just concocted / use "obummer" because he (for me) is a bummer, as in depressing = bummed out.

If its been happening for all of recorded history in every culture and every background, and in a good chunk of the mammals, how would you consider it 'abnormal'?

Not to detract from this fascinating survey of human perversion, a topic area in which aldermanparklover appears to be an expert, but yeah, that must be a British term. The American sense means a disappointment or annoyance, as in, "oh, another thread derailed by homophobia and conspiracy theories? What a bummer."

The etymology is interesting and is separate from the UK sense. It comes from the German "bummler", meaning a lazy or feckless person. It was originally "bummer" in English, but was shortened to "bum" by the mid 19th century, with the same definition. "Bum" was later used in phrases  like "bum steer", "bum out", "bum rap" and, in the 1960s, "bummer" emerged to refer to a "bum" experience, especially one related to a drug trip.

The UK sense of "bummer" comes (I assume) from the sense of the word "bum" meaning "butt", as if gay men are the only ones who like butts.

I had forgotten that use of the term - and I assumed it was a reference to homosexuality as otherwise, "Obummer" is a really mild insult.

well unless stephendare is willing to concede that rape, pedophilia, beastiality, incest, necrophilia, sadism and any other sexual proclivity not pertaining to our biological mandate for procreation are legitimate and normal, then I stand validated in using the word perversion to describe homosexuality.

Btw, I'm very gay friendly but I'm not deluded enough to regard it as something other than what it is.

Btw, I'm very gay friendly but I'm not deluded enough to regard it as something other than what it is.

btw.  you are polite, not gay friendly.

OK, lets parse this.  Are the following legitimately 'abnormal'.

Rape, bestiality, incest, necrophilia, sadism.  Those are the ones you named.

In order.

Rape.  It is criminal, it is horrible, it is often violent and fatal, and an act of force, but it is certainly not uncommon in the literal sense as it happens with great frequency and has happened since we first started recording stories.  For some really gruesome and disgusting stories about rape and dismemberment, you can check out one of the oldest books still in circulation, the Bible.  Let me commend you to one of the most infamous of them starting in the book of Judges 19:22

It is a crime of violence acted out sexually against a (by definition) unwilling partner. (three of your instances are. Dead people can't give consent, and most people would agree that inter species sex is rarely consensual.  In the case of Dolphin Human sex its usually an act of rape that is fatal for the human female.  Hippos who are raped by rogue elephants also seem to share a general dim view of the practice)

Bestiality truly is abnormal.  It is not reported in every society and culture throughout history, it is exceedingly rare and notoriously difficult to pull of without losing friends or exposing oneself to some rather savage infections.  Its rarity and inexplicability, I think, qualifies it as abnormal.

Incest is more common, and quite frowned upon outside of Kentucky and apparently Alabama, but it is more of a culturally defined thing.  If you recall, Father Abraham and Sarah, were brother and sister when they fled Ur of the Chaldeas together.  We consider sexual relations to be incestuous in any familial connection closer than second cousins.  That definition was arrived at rather late in our history, based on older notions of the germplasm.  So what we consider incest today would have been a perfectly acceptable match at the founding of the Republic. Illegal? yes. Unadvisable over generations in families with transmissible genetic disorders? definitely.  are there blurred lines about the definition of it, and therefore the scope of the behavior itself, Also definitely. 

Here are the pertinent scriptures: Start in Genesis 20:11
11Abraham said, "Because I thought, surely there is no fear of God in this place, and they will kill me because of my wife. 12"Besides, she actually is my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother, and she became my wife;

Necrophilia is even rarer than bestiality, and almost certainly more fraught with both bacteriological and social downsides.  It also is not recorded with any frequency in all cultures and eras, and requires a fairly rugged constitution in order to even contemplate it.  True, there are fewer chances that the relationship might go badly, but that doesnt seem to have made it any more attractive or more widespread than a couple of creeps per century getting busted for it.  Almost all the modern cases are accompanied with extreme emotional disturbance, so there is some evidence that the two might be linked.  Definitely qualifies as abnormal as well as criminal and extremely poor form.

Sadism.  Have you checked out the number one bestselling book and film '50 Shades of Grey'?  Kind of huge with women of a certain age, if the very long lines at the local movie theatres are any indication. So, abnormal?  Hard to peg Grandma Kate and Aunt Jane as the vanguard of the abnormal set.

I think most people realize that same sex attractions are generally normal and positive.  Or at least as normal and positive as heterosexual attractions. 

However, I do think that hiring a bunch of prostitutes to pee all over each other in a bed that has been previously slept in by your political rival smacks of a deep seated abnormality.

Like was it the golden shower show or the fact that it was on a bed that Obama slept in that made the act appealing?

KOOOOOOOOOL-AIIIIIIID ... if you detach yourself from pure emotion, step back and look at the argument from a biological, scientific way (Darwinism) you see that humans are designed with very specific organs strictly for the purpose of reproduction (which happens to be a fundamental part of any species surviving)

and just like our big brains, a lot of energy (calories) is consumed / dedicated to our reproductive components, and the process of reproduction itself - whether it's finding a mate, copulating or bringing a child into this world, protecting / raising the child into maturity - we are hard wired to breed.

but sometimes things don't go as biologically planned and some people malfunction; they have no desire to mix genes to bring progeny forth. this is a disordered sexual state.

lets look at a similar problem in the same way - eating disorders. Would you tell an anorexic that not wanting to eat is ok, because it's part of who they are and there are cases of it in nature? or because it's not harming anyone else?

um. I would tell you that the human experience is one of connection, intimacy, touch, empathy and socialization. We are social animals and our complex interrelatedness is the definition of our highest experience.

I would also assume that you apparently don't know much about sexual expression.

Or anatomy, for that matter.  Like you do realize that all of the sexualized organs have more than one function, right?

You certainly wouldnt make the argument that the mouth was clearly designed for mastication and salivation, so any talking or lack of drooling was a misuse of the mouth, would you?

Its just silly.

Necrophilia is even rarer than bestiality, and almost certainly more fraught with both bacteriological and social downsides.  It also is not recorded with any frequency in all cultures and eras, and requires a fairly rugged constitution in order to even contemplate it.  True, there are fewer chances that the relationship might go badly, but that doesnt seem to have made it any more attractive or more widespread than a couple of creeps per century getting busted for it.  Almost all the modern cases are accompanied with extreme emotional disturbance, so there is some evidence that the two might be linked.  Definitely qualifies as abnormal as well as criminal and extremely poor form.

Sadism.  Have you checked out the number one bestselling book and film '50 Shades of Grey'?  Kind of huge with women of a certain age, if the very long lines at the local movie theatres are any indication. So, abnormal?  Hard to peg Grandma Kate and Aunt Jane as the vanguard of the abnormal set.

I think most people realize that same sex attractions are generally normal and positive.  Or at least as normal and positive as heterosexual attractions. 

However, I do think that hiring a bunch of prostitutes to pee all over each other in a bed that has been previously slept in by your political rival smacks of a deep seated abnormality.

Like was it the golden shower show or the fact that it was on a bed that Obama slept in that made the act appealing?


KOOOOOOOOOL-AIIIIIIID ... if you detach yourself from pure emotion, step back and look at the argument from a biological, scientific way (Darwinism) you see that humans are designed with very specific organs strictly for the purpose of reproduction (which happens to be a fundamental part of any species surviving)

and just like our big brains, a lot of energy (calories) is consumed / dedicated to our reproductive components, and the process of reproduction itself - whether it's finding a mate, copulating or bringing a child into this world, protecting / raising the child into maturity - we are hard wired to breed.

but sometimes things don't go as biologically planned and some people malfunction; they have no desire to mix genes to bring progeny forth. this is a disordered sexual state.

lets look at a similar problem in the same way - eating disorders. Would you tell an anorexic that not wanting to eat is ok, because it's part of who they are and there are cases of it in nature? or because it's not harming anyone else?

I hate to wade in here (and, god help me, I will probably regret it) - but humans aren't the only species that practice homosexuality. So, if that's the case, then any argument about it being "unnatural" is flawed.

And Darwinism is a theory created by a man - it's not a law.
