well, did you?

did you know?
In "1955, Hugh Hefner agreed to publish in
Playboy a short story about straight men being
persecuted in a world where homosexuality was
the norm. In response to the criticism, Hefner
replied, ''If it was wrong to persecute
heterosexuals in a homosexual society then the
reverse was wrong, too."

That's not how logic works Hugh.   
   
If a person sees something as amiss and therefore speaks out against it and it is wrong, the reverse is worse.   
   
For example, say we lived in a world where insane people put sane people into asylums. I'm ASSUMING that you'd find that to be wrong, so apparently putting insane people into an asylum is wrong then? (I'm talking 						*******					 insane, and harmful)   
   
This is a logical fallacy, and moreover stop doing your political circle jerks you bunch of 						*******					 morons.

Yea but gay people aren't insane
#121 to #120 - redbannerman (02/14/2014) [-]
Oh for ****** sake.

It's called an example. I couldn't think of anything else. People DO see homosexuality as a negative just as they would see insanity as a negative, therefore this logic is not functional.
#123 to #121 - fukyouto (02/14/2014) [-]
Look man the point was its wrong to persecute gay people, which it is. Stop trying to sound like a political genius on a comedy website.

Every individual should have the freedom to marry/have relations with whomever they choose, as long as consent is mutual. Everyone must also learn to respect the views and beliefs of others, so long as people do not use their beliefs to directly violate the natural rights of others. The basis of liberty is respect for others and willingness to accept differences in opinion, within the framework of representative, democratic law.

okay, I want to mary my 13 year old brother.

oh wait, not so tolerant now huh?

so basically, people should mary whoever they want as long as you're okay with it. okay. but who draws that line? where do we draw it? what If I wanted to mary my cat? or my car?
User avatar #171 to #158 - konradkurze (02/14/2014) [-]
you want to marry weird **** , jump on a boat, sail to international waters and get the captain of the boat to marry you
its legal
User avatar #165 to #158 - freedombirdman (02/14/2014) [-]
-Your brother is not of legal age to offer consent
-Your cat is not sentient and therefore cannot offer consent (legal age would still apply as well)
-A car is neither sentient, alive, nor a legal entity, so your argument is invalid. You could 'marry' your car if you want, but the union wouldn't be recognized by the state, and good luck finding a church/denomination that would be willing to perform such a ceremony.

nah the gay propeganda is just forced on us for profit by businesses. people only support gay rights because their business would suffer from the boycott otherwise
User avatar #172 to #126 - konradkurze (02/14/2014) [-]
people support gay rights because gaysare human

the whole anti-gay **** is just spread by the corporations who want the people fighting each other over minor issues to distract them from reality

sexuality: straight vs gay vs in between
politics: democrat vs republican vs independent
human race: white vs asian vs hispanic vs arab vs native american

anything to keep the people against each other than against the real problems

Imagine A World Where Being "Gay" The Norm & Being "Straight" Would Be The Minority! [Short Film] Saw a short film with the same concept (video is the film, by the by, its about 20 minutes long) and despite being rather pro-gay, I couldn't finish watching it, because yeah, the reverse is absolutely retarded

My largest, biggest issue regarding it is that the world couldn't work. Biologically they seem similar, so the only way these people could procreate would be through artificial insemination, which is a rather new procedure, or at least newer than the times of Beethoven.

If a woman and a woman could make a child in this world, or a man or a man, then how or why could heterosexuality exist? However if you just say they have the same, shall we say, equipment, as we do, then what is the issue? Hate it or not the baseline, root of the problem people have is that homosexuality is physically incapable of making offspring. That was why it was deemed sinful in the bible (if you read it in this way), Gay Love, in this purview, would be an act of lust, nothing more. But if Homosexuality could result in an infant, the same as heterosexuality, then there would be no issue

This isn't even going into the fact that in the film, despite it taking place in aprox modern day, everyone seems to have the moral standings of a Traditionalist Catholic Nun from the 1930's, even the children, who are all physically repulsed by the very idea of it.

TL;DR: Here is a movie about same concept, I hate it because Science and Inability to Adjust for Suspension of Disbelief because they want you to critically think about it

homosexuality is on occasion a result of nature randomly deciding to put up a roadblock on the number of humans born

face it, the world is producing humans faster than it can adapt to produce real food for them all....so we're forced to make fake **** food just to fill our stomachs and pretend thats life
User avatar #157 to #65 - richardstiffy (02/14/2014) [-]
I always thought it was weird that people who can't have children are able to get married without protest.

Ah crap, I shoulda guessed someone would of posted the video before me
User avatar #56 - deadadventurer (02/14/2014) [-]
I guess in a society where homosexuals were the norm, Heteros would be revered as sacred since they would hold the only way to procreate. (artificial insemination leads to weaker offspring, so go **** yourself if you think that's a valid long term solution. )

Sources on artificial insemination leading to weaker offspring?

what? No answer?

#180 to #179 - theism ONLINE (02/15/2014) [-]
Got distracted. I didn't read your source thoroughly but I'm looking for links to evidence. Studies that have shown your claim. I'd like to know the science behind it.

That's like punishing your kid with one week in the dungeon and 50 flails for accidentally breaking a plate.
User avatar #186 to #184 - vaticancameos (02/15/2014) [-]
English syntax error?

That is what you are blaming for the message that your comment so blatantly broadcasted to the FunnyJunk community?

I daresay that it is not simply a language difference that is to blame here, but nice try.
Perhaps to a certain extent, however not fully. I very much doubt that.
User avatar #187 to #186 - asmodeu (02/16/2014) [-]
"I daresay" stop being such a pompous douchebag and acknowledge that language difference matters a lot here.
Still you did understand what I was Trying to say, yet you chose to cling to the grammar nazi inside.
#188 to #187 - vaticancameos (02/16/2014) [-]
Obviously, you have failed to realise that my issue was not with your grammer or lack of punctuation. (which is dreadful, since you did bring the matter up)   
   
No, instead, I find the message within your comment to be distasteful and completely incomparable to the topic featured in the content above.   
   
And as for 'being a pompous douchebag', if using the english language as a person well-educated with it is a problem for you, then I can only allude that to your possibly being jealous that you fail to use it correctly.   
   
Lastly, since I shan't be replying to any more of your ridiculous comments (I fear my IQ has been dropping as I read them), I bid you good day.   
Kindly shove your head up your arse.

I would shove my head up my ass, but then we'd be on the same page and I don't like having anything in common with people whose IQ matches their age, other than the fact that we both have a face.

If you were actually a well-educated person (which I honestly doubt), then you would have known that linguistic skills don't make you an "educated person". Also, by saying it out loud "I AM A WELL EDUCATED PERSON" makes you look like more like a pompous douchebag. Following that with a bunch of insults just screams "Pompous douchebag". Our little conversation has inspired me to test my photoshop skills. I made a portrait of yourself. Feel free to use it as you want - frame it, show it to your friends.

I would advise you to take some time off from whatever it is you're doing and meditate on the idea of "having an education" and where would that fit in an internet fight.
