You Can't Even Argue This Point by SionnaDehr You Can't Even Argue This Point by SionnaDehr
I mean really, the phrase, "because God said so" makes more logical sense than "if animals can do itz totes fine!"
For the most part, people use this to try and say homosexuality is okay. I find that a problem. I find that a big problem. After all, I thought humans were supposed to be evolved beyond basic animalistic tendencies. Using this argument to try and prove what many view to be a lifestyle choice doesn't work very well.
May I draw you to this stamp [link] that explains the issue in better words than I ever could? Well, I just did so I will continue.
Animals do a lot of things that we find rather disgusting if a human does it. Like cannibalism for an example.
Links to Cannibalism:
[link](zoology) -for a general idea of it in the wild.

Let's see, what else is out there? Oh yes! Rape in animals!
[link]

Of course, when searching for this on the internet, I mostly find shit about human abuse to animals concerning this subject. I'm not going to dig through the internet to find this stuff.

Now, what else can I list? Oh, wait, killing!
[link]

If I had the mindset to think of the right keywords, I would probably have a better time finding what I'm looking for. As it is, I have a head cold, so my research skills are down. Anyway, the list could go on and I'm sure if I looked harder under all categorical abominations (or what are considered abominations in the human race). My point is that if people are going to try and prove something right, they might not want to use the animal kingdom as a reliable source. Yes, I'm especially talking to you evolutionists who loooove using this excuse. Find something else, please?

Actually, if there are any other arguments out there, please feel free to comment and tell me the other reasons. I'm not as interested in refuting them as I am interested in knowing what people are saying.

EDIT
[link] Adding this because it accurately illustrates the sheer stupidity of the "animals do it so its okay" argument.

So...according to these people...when the dog tried to copulate with my leg(realy...it's not funny ;_; ), people can do it too and this is okay?

People =/= animals

Taking refuge in Appeal to Nature is never a good idea.

A much better argument would be: it doesn't harm anyone, so it must be okay.
I have never heard a satisfactory rebuttal to this.

Apparently dolphins gang-rape, orcas kill baby humpbacks by separating them from their parents and blocking their blowholes, and penguins have been known to engage in necrophilia. Oh, and pigs in captivity have been known to cannibalize each other.
My dog likes the taste of deer poop and my cats like to walk all over me (literally)...that doesn't make it okay.
I'm sick of people saying "But animals do X, and only humans do Y," SMH

The best argument that supports homosexuality being natural is this:www.theguardian.com/science/20…

It's not entirely due to genes, but they do play a role. That's my argument for gay marriage. Is this valid?

It's more valid than "homosexuality is in nature therefore it must be moral". Genes influencing a form of sexual orientation is one thing. Saying something is natural because animals do it is another. Animals do a lot of things that are natural. Doesn't mean it's moral to do them, which is my argument. 
And I like your argument better. It's, dare I say it, more reasonable. 
Two thumbs up.

Since homophobic people consider gays "unnatural" people look for answers by looking at nature itself. In fact homosexuality has been found in over 15000 species, meanwhile homophobia just in 1. So yes, being gay is completely natural. Being homophobic isn't. 
And people are not going to use the "animals do it" excuse for either rape, cannibalism or murder because you can cause serious physical and mental harm to someone. What harm did homosexuality ever cause? I'll tell you; NONE. EVER.

One thing about your argument (besides the fact that, like so many before you, you're totally missing the point), people actually do use the "animals do it so it must be okay" excuse to justify a lot of horrific things. I learned that recently in my philosophy class (taught by an atheist before you accuse), so you are sorely mistaken on that front.
On the other, homosexuality in nature is rape in many cases. Animals (take dogs for instance) use homosexuality to assert dominance over another of their species usually in a pack or group setting. Also, where other species are concerned, there is a very good chance that what we perceive as homosexual behavior is, actually, something else entirely since, you know, they're not human and, therefore, don't think like humans do. Just figured I'd throw that out there.
Homosexuality doesn't cause harm, you're right, but it isn't as fluffy bunny-like as you seem to be presenting it.
And, again, there are quite a few things that are natural that we consider as inhumane and horrendous yet animals do it, practice it, participate in it, which is, might I say, my actual point. But, you're too busy calling me a homophobe to see that point because my point illuminates a huge problem with your (and other's) argument. 
Kindly learn to read before commenting, thank you!

I did not call you a homophobe? Maybe you feel attacked by the other people calling you one but I don't believe you are one. And I thought the point you were trying to make is that people must not use the "animals do it" excuse for anything..or did I get that wrong as well?
