'Homosexuality' Is A Misnomer

What does 'homosexual' mean anyway? My dictionary defines it as "relating to, or involving sexual intercourse between persons of the same sex". This sounds a bit circular to me, so I looked up 'sexual intercourse' and here is what I found:

1: heterosexual intercourse involving penetration of the vagina by the penis
2: intercourse involving genital contact between individuals other than penetration of the vagina by the penis

Now here's the funny thing. According to #1, 'persons of the same sex' cannot possibly engage in 'sexual intercourse', for they certainly lack the complete required apparatus. And #2 is laughable, as it implies that an appointment with your urologist (or ginecologist if you're a woman) may be characterized as 'sexual intercourse', but a french kiss between two men may not.

So what's wrong with 'homosexuality' if, despite the misleading name, it has nothing to do with 'sex' as 'heterosexuals' (another misleading concept) define it anyway? And why would God waste His divine time with silly quibbles about which parts of other people's bodies your genitals are supposed to touch? Does any believer believe God is that silly?
