Homosexuality unaided as a rare and natural occurrence is fine. Homosexuality bolstered by pride, the media, and people making a conscious choice to have gay relationships over straight ones is indeed damaging to society.
Youre right ... I can only project that that is the case based on science. I will never be able to know that definitively. But it seems only reasonable that that would have been the case at some point.
I wonder if homosexuality is an abnormality we just never fully outgrew from whatever fish spawn transsexual thing we evolved from. Maybe it would have gone away given enough time. Maybe it only lingers because the people afflicted by it are still close enough genetically to mate with the rest of us and pass it on. It could actually be that it is a defect at this point.
While documentation of homosexuality may be far less common the farther back you go in history, to assume that homosexuality did not exist is false. If there were fewer documentations, it is only because people were unsure of what homosexuality was back in those days, and did not wish to act on their same-sex attraction. (PS: This is not a direct attack, just a statement)
Since even in their ideal scenario they can not readily change sex to mate ... As the predecessor they evolved from would have had the ability to do. They've lost the physical capability to do that, but the behavior is allowed to linger on because of the way society preserves even those that don't fit.
@FreedomBeforeEquality evolutionary, I can see why you'd call homosexuality an abnormality. However, I do not feel that it hinders evolution. After all, procreation does not always occur in heterosexuality.
Idk ... I think it actually does exactly that. I think everything we do today is a direct force against evolution. It might not necessarily be a bad thing ... Outgrowing evolution. We seem to have outgrown our need for it and had technology take up our slack. Its great I suppose ... If you assume we are already as perfect as nature was ever going to get us on its own.
@FreedomBeforeEquality those things only exist because religious oppression has made them necessary for gays to live a normal life. And people should not have to hide their sexuality, even if I find it offensive to see, people like me should just grow up and let other people live their life.
That might be true ... If homosexuality was accepted several centuries ago it might have bred itself out of existence. Its actually pretty bad that it coincidentally landed in an era where we can control reproduction to the point that we can artificially make offspring using two males ... Or two females. Prolonging its own demise by forcing them to be in the closet about it has actually set us up to be perpetually poisoned by it forever now.
DavidMGold, "the Centers for Disease & Control say so regarding AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases." - You mean the ones that straight people also carry and spread to one another? Some of which are more prevalent among straight people? In fact, I urge you to take a trip to parts of West and Central Africa, Russia, South Asia, and South America where HIV is an epidemic among STRAIGHT people, and is spread mostly through heterosexual contact. Then see how quickly your narrow minded association of STD's and homosexual orientation bites you in the ignorant ass. Conservatives always seem to know the best way to show how incredibly out of touch reality they are.
I agree ... Its not an epidemic among gays in particular ... It is an epidemic among the sexually promiscuous as a whole. Gays just happen to fall into that group predominantly and is why they get mistaken for being at the root of it. Odds of contracting are substantially reduced when you have less partners.
