It explains why homosexuality breaks God-given gender roles. It references the three focuses of purity, unity, and procreation that contradict the gender norms God gave us. Since humans were made to make humans, homosexuals cannot fulfill that requirement. Since they cannot have sex, they cannot be united and that breaks the gender norms. Since they cannot technically get married, they cannot procreate, it would be impure to have sex because it would be outside of marriage. Link to annotations

At the 2008 Gay Softball World Series, five men were charged with not being gay. They were then forced to explain themselves and their sexualities before a protest committee. Despite that their second place was invalidated because the committee decided three men were not gay. After they changed their rules to include gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender as under the umbrella and made sexual identities self-declared. Also, the team got their second place back with an agreement. The norm is the mindset that officials can better decide sexuality than an individual. Categorization can be used justly but it is often changed with bias, researchers can have a bias. The “Don’t Say Gay” bill did seek to prohibit “the teaching or furnishing of materials on human sexuality other than heterosexuality in public school grades K-8.” Sex is biological and gender is socially determined and individually identified. Sexual orientation “refers to an individual’s enduring physical, romantic, and/or emotional attraction to another person.” Sexual Orientations doesn’t have one specific origin. Link to
