    The new homosexual history education law in California got me thinking...

    Is sexual orientation more like religion or more like ethnicity? It's not exactly like either of course. But the homosexual rights activists have fought hard to get it viewed more like race (or ethnicity), often comparing their 'persecution' to that of blacks in this country (which I would find particularly insulting if I were black).

    Discuss.

    In some ways they are correct. Gays have been persecuted and murdered throughout time (except ancient Greece) so they have a point. I don't believe it to be a choice either. I think it is a switch that is flicked at conception.

    I don't know man alot of people treat Muslims as their own race, sexual orientation is probably going to be a category for race soon.

    And being gay is nothing like being black, you can't hide being black but if you don't want people to know you are gay, don't tell them.

    You are of course correct about being able to hide. That was never an option for blacks for sure.

    Sexual orientation is also a sexual preference which alot of people don't even know find out until their teen years or even later in life, you know you are Black pretty much as soon as you are born.

    Or marry someone of the opposite sex and have kids.

    Sorry but if a guy is truly homosexual then he shouldn't be able to get it up with a woman.

    I am as hetero as they get and, no guy on earth or any other planet could arouse me sexually.
