If you truly think Homosexuality is a “defect” then it comes with a significant advantage over most other genetic “defects”, the likelihood that it wouldn’t be “passed on”. Blind people still go into relationships that can result in reproduction, as do those who have genetic diseases, and on and on. However, by their nature, homosexuals generally engage in sexual relations that would not pass on their genes and thus not pass on that “defect”.
So in reality, of all the potential “defects”, you’d think Homosexuality would bother him the least because it’d be the least likely to be passed on.
The funny thing is, I don’t necessarily disagree with his GENERAL premise. That genetic homosexuality if it exists (and I believe it exists, though is not the only way one may come to that lifestyle) is likely a “defect” or more to the point simply an abnormality. Essentially a difference contrary to the basic and most standard biological function inbred in animals, mating to pass on genes. That does not necessarily mean the “defect” is a bad thing, or necessarily unnatural. Changes and abnormalities in a population can occur for legitimate reasons. Our world is continually growing, continually having resources gobbled up, with more and more being born. It could be a notion that it is an inherent genetic abnormality in some that is effectively a form of attempted population control by limiting the amount of general reproductive searching individuals into the pool.
I don’t generally state this view because you have people like Scarecrow that take it as a means of attempting to ridicule, insult, debase, and imply the need for “fixing” the issue. In reality, I don’t think it’s a bad thing that its present in the population in a general sense nor something that should attempt to be “fixed” or “cured”. But because some people take a similar view and use it for hate attempts to reasonably discuss the potential notion sadly are rather limited as you quickly get grouped into the same group.
Its actually nice when you can though, as a good conversation on these forums actually shifted my view from believing homosexuality was “unnatural” in a scientific sense (because it goes against the prime purpose of a species in regards to reproduction) to recognizing its found all throughout nature and that it is more likely an abnormality pertaining to certain genetic and evolutionary issues.
