Pro-gay: There is nothing wrong with homosexuality.

Anti-gay: AIDS!

Pro-gay: AIDS is also caused by dirty needles and heterosexual sex.

Anti-gay: Gay people are more promiscuous, so they make AIDS a bigger problem.

Pro-gay: AIDS is spread mostly by straight people.

Anti-gay: Gay sex is inherently more risky than heterosexual sex.

Pro-gay: You're a bigot.

Anti-gay: You're immoral/damned.

I'm tired of seeing the same debate a thousand times. What can be done to change the dialogue?

it wasn't so long ago that homosexuals and pedophiles were lumped together.

Don't leave out the animals!  bestiality was also in the melting pot, as I understand it.

Well, if you can't find an 8 year old for a date on Saturday night, there's always a goat.

...and some where in this world there is a little goat crying out for help...

Ah, the famous tree goats of Namibia.

And while this is just anecdotal, he did make clear that there is a very active underbelly of promiscuity in the gay community

I had a female friend in college and she was very pro gay and active in the community and she told me the same thing. I believe that is because since men are more geared towards engaging in sexual relationships in the teen years and 20s because of hormones than women, it is easier to find another man who is genetically wired the same than a woman. Like the saying goes "its easier for a woman to get laid than a guy". Why? Because men naturally want more sex and are willing to sleep with just about any girl.. In the gay community I guess it just becomes easier.

If you truly want to argue from a Pro Gay point of you then you have to argue it the correctly which would be Civil Rights. You have to come from an angle which shows that being is gay is perfectly normal as it is another expression of human evolution and way of life. And limiting freedom of self expression is against one's rights as it limits one right to be themselves.

You look young. Are you sure you've spent much time around teen girls? I think some of the females here may be rolling their eyes. Teen girls are just as horny as guys, maybe hornier. By contrast, guys have that performance anxiety to overcome. They talk a good game, but frequently are more afraid of sex than their female counterparts.

Actually most lesbian girls look for relationships rather than one-night-stands.  I think he has a point, there.

Yes there are but teen girls don't just always jump into random one nighters. I'm 24, so its been about 8 years since I was 16. If things are still relatively how it was 8 years ago, then I believe most teen girls usually engage in sex because of peer pressure surrounding them. Barring the few who were just a sleeping mattress for just about any guy.
