What does it mean to be homosexual?
A person is said to be homosexual if he or she is sexually or romantically attracted to members of the same gender, or sex. This doesn’t mean that homosexuals are sexually attracted to all members of the same gender any more than heterosexuals are sexually attracted to every person of the opposite sex. Typically, the words “gay” and “lesbian” are used to refer to homosexual men and women. The term “bisexual” refers to people who are attracted to both men and women.
Researchers who study human sexuality believe that sexual orientation develops and changes over a person’s lifetime. Having feelings about or even having a sexual experience with a person of the same sex doesn’t necessarily mean that a person is gay or bisexual. It’s not uncommon for people to experiment with their sexuality, especially during adolescence and young adulthood.
Is homosexuality a disease?
No, homosexuality is not a disease. All major mental health organizations, including the American Psychological Association (APA), have stated that homosexuality is not a mental disorder. Being unsure or uncomfortable about your feelings can cause anxiety and stress, which can sometimes cause physical problems like trouble sleeping, nausea and headache. Talking with people about how you feel, such as trusted family members and friends, can help reduce your stress and anxiety.

I do think it is a good thing,we cannt be extremist,we have to take the homosexual marriage as normal.
There is nothing wrong or right of homosexual marriage, it's just a kind of choice, a kind of personal tendency.
we need to show our respect, the respect of individual, which includes the life they choose to live.
we need to be Tolerant，we can tolerate things that are unusual or even go against normal pratice.
