There will never be complete consistency or perfect symmetry in the argument - actually on either side - because one view accepts as a fundamental premise that homosexual (insert any other of your choice) behavior is perverted on the basis of a moral distinction, and the other does not.
I totally understand that you would want to stay away from the moral POV, and make your arguments along political lines.
Politics and amorality can indeed make fine bedfellows, in a politically correct atmosphere.
