    Re: Is Homosexuality "Normal" and "Natural"?

    Although I really don't care much about it, I don't really think it is normal or natural. Seriously, the ultimate biological goal for all animals is to live and reproduce to carry on their species. It's a biological imperative. That is why sex feels good and why we like it. Some wires are crossed with homosexuals I think, but I also don't think they're crazy or anything, just "different."

    Is it really always biologically beneficial for every member of a species to reproduce? Of course not. The ultimate biological goal for all animals is not to simply live and reproduce. It is to survive. Often, survival requires a smaller population, and reproduction may be harmful. Also, because homosexuality is prevalent among countless species, it is objectively natural by definition.

    As to normal, I fail to see how homosexuals are anything but. Being gay is not a psychological problem, and gay men and women function perfectly well in society. There is no physical difficulty either. Exactly what definition of normal are you using?

    Of course it is natural. If it was not natural then people would physically be unable to do it. It is not normal in that most people are heterosexual though...

    I don't suppose you have some evidence to back up this claim?

    What about women? Why are you leaving them out? I know that watching two women together seems normal and excitingly natural to me.

    Watch. You might just like it.

    I have to question, when homosexuality becomes an "issue", why do people ONLY focus on male on male?

    I have a theory but it's rather long. But aside from that. I have no clue.

    I think it is a biological imperative, just like in every other animal. Of course we don't consciously have sex to reproduce, but that IS the ultimate goal I believe. The reason why it feels good and is fun is so that we will WANT to do it. Of course, there are no really conclusive reasons why a person might be a homosexual, so I would have no idea. I'm not necessarily saying that it is a psychological problem. Maybe it's just a fluke thing that happens to a small percentage of people, a combination of different factors that together may make a person be gay? I don't really know.

    No. The ultimate goal of a species is to survive, not to reproduce. If overpopulation is an issue, and if scarce resources cannot support a large number of additional members, gay members would serve a vital role of limiting population growth. That is just one example of when homosexuality in fact advances the biological imperative more ultimate than reproduction--survival.
