Once again, discussing gay relationships and gay marriage
This evening I had a long discussion with some young ladies in Vancouver about gay relationships and gay marriage. They argued very coolly and persuasively, and convinced me to change my opinion partially on the subject.
I have an open mind and no ego problem, and I admit that sometimes my opinions may be wholly or partially wrong. I am a human being, and sometimes do commit mistakes. What these young ladies have persuaded me of, by giving me the scientific facts, is that a small percentage of the population have brains that are wired so that they are attracted to the same sex. They love people of the same sex, and there should be no objection or judgment towards that in a free society. I think they're right. Therefore I was at least partially wrong.
However, I am still of the opinion that ordinarily same sex relationships are unnatural, and heterosexual relationships are natural. That being said, I believe that homosexual relationships should certainly not be made a criminal offense as they are today in India, vide section 377 of the Indian Penal Code. That provision should be abolished immediately.
