    A couple of months ago, give or take, I started a topic on this forum stating that homosexuality was confined to Homo-Sapiens and I denied its existence in other animals.
    My OP led a train of posts stating plainly that same sex relationships does exist in the animal kingdom. Back then I disbelieved you.
    But now I take back my former opinion. I admit that I was wrong, and I ask you for forgiveness.
    What had brought my change of heart? On the internet there is a very good source of information I have recently discovered. It is

    http:en.wickipedia.org/wiki/homosexuality

    Which includes an article about animal homosexuality, from which I was able to click onto more detailed articles on the same website.
    Those who know me well had always said I was opinionated, determined and difficult to change my ways. But not impossible, I hoped to have proven.

    Good. And thank you.

    Reconcile your faith with your being gay. Because until then, you're simply lost.

    think of all those wasted years and energy defending something that is not true, something was told to you as fact, that was actually not. always question everything and keep an open mind to possible alternatives.

    I applaud you for this. It takes a big person to come back and admit he was wrong well after the debate ended.

    Not that I am unhappy that you came around, but.. uh. Wiki? I mean, that isn't the most reliable source (on the net or otherwise).

    i copied and pasted the link- and it didnt work. then i noticed wikipedia was mispelt which makes me ask..did you type out that link?

    for future posts, to make it easier for you (and us):

    1. find the article you want people to reach/ read,
    2. copy it from the address bar at the top (right click till its highlighted in blue and copy)
    3. get back to this site.
    4. click the right most "URL" button above your text window and then
    5. paste the link (right click and paste) where the UPPERCASE letters are.

    [url]HTTP ADDRESS GOES HERE[/url ]

    then preview your post making sure the link has a line below it and is a different color. if it is, youre set. if not, youve got something wrong.

    There's a great book on this topic which came out years ago (hopefully the Wikipedia article references it, too).

    An educated man is someone who can look at all sides of an idea and consider its worth without need of believing it.

    NTO: Well done.

    Yes, I goofed with the address link, as it was manually typed in. But I thank SinNombre for correcting my error. Im still trying to get to grips with internetting, but I'll get there - eventually.
