“It’s Not Natural”

Every gay person has heard it at least once in their lifetime. “It’s not natural,” usually stated by a right-wing Christian hoping that they can “save your soul.”

Let me tell you a bit about nature.

“Homosexual behavior occurs in more than 450 different kinds of animals.” – Biological Exuberance by Bruce Bagemihl

There are at least 7 different kinds of animals that can be considered gender-altered. The cuttlefish is a big one. They literally can split themselves down the middle and be female on one side and male on the other, they alter depending on what is around them. So, there can be a male on one side showing his female side and a female on the other showing his male side. A few other animals that bend the specifications of gender are garter snakes, hyenas, parrotfish, hawkfish, and anemonefish.

And consider the seahorse. Although it does not change sex, the female is the one who deposits her egg in the male. Enough said.

These are just a few facts about the animal world we live in. Just because you don’t fit into someone’s idea of how “normal” behavior is, doesn’t mean you are abnormal. It means they are narrow-minded. Try to remember that.

Here’s a quick bible verse relating to gay people, spoken by Jesus himself. Do your research and you’ll see the “eunuchs born that way” typically refers to gay males.

Matthew 19:12
