Homosexuality: We Still Need To Talk About It

I really have serious difficulty understanding how homosexuality is immoral when it is not to the detriment of anything.

I Never Knew I Was A Feminist

I believe in equality by default. I want to do the right thing (most of the time) by default and I despise injustice by default.

'should men be paid more because they have a penis?'. Why would anyone ever need need me to answer those questions?
