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."

Just because something's wrong, doesn't mean the reverse is wrong. A bit of an illogical deduction, but humorous none the less.

Officers put convicts behind bars. This is ok.
Convicts put officers behind bars. This is not ok.
It may work in HH's example, but it's not a general rule valid in every argument.

I imagine a world where psychopaths persecute those who have never killed a single person, before skinning them alive and taking pictures of their penis wrapped in all the skin.

ive actually thought about this a lot   
   
its a book i more or less intended to write when i finally developed the wisdom and experience so as not to be a terrible excuse for a writer, but its a short lil sci fi flick about a male astronaut who, in taking a trip to some distant planet or whatever prior to the development of the FTL drive, returns from his cryogenic century long voyage to find that lesbians have literally taken over the world   
--that is, once human cloning and genetic splicing were perfected, all the neo feminists decided (more or less truthfully, i often fear) that men were so terrible and in some cases useless that they would literally be better off by killing them all off and mixing their genes among clones in order to reproduce asexually and/or homosexually   
   
so when this guy finally returns home with hope of a new world, he is immediately enslaved, falls in love with his jailor - who has never known the sight of a man - breaks free with her help and are continuously hunted by the lesbian oppressors until....well i never quite knew how to end it XD id like to think their love ends up showing them some sort of error in their ways but if i wrote something like that nowadays i'd probably be called a homophobe or something   
   
plus i think star trek already did this story decades before i even conceived of it

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.

If we could breed by homosexuality, then we'd basically have 2 different species. Nobody ever thinks bestiality is fine.

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

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.

redbannerman, this can of worms was already opened. Save yourself some trouble, and just let it go.
Unless, like me, you enjoy debates and arguments.
