    ... and of course it is instinctual that I find hot babes desirable.

    Frankly, even then, it's not like our actions are completely our own anyway. Our instincts push us towards certain behaviors and inclinations without our knowledge or consent.

    Sexuality is one such instinct.
    I agree. I have saved other people's lives at the risk of my own and when I later thought about it I thought, "why did I do that?". When one of the times it was my daughter I understood but when the other two happened I was not so sure. Instinct.

    When overpopulation occurs, it is quite possible for an entire population to die off. Regardless, that simply proves that there is not always a biological imperative to reproduce. You keep ignoring that key point.

    That is all I was really trying to say. Glad we can end on agreement.

    Sounds like you've sometimes wondered just that.

    Nope. The only reason people are driven to have sex is because it feels good. Billions of people have sex every day without the intention of reproducing.

    Not relevant to my main point whatsoever, which is the following: Homosexuality occurs in nature and is therefore natural. The argument that reproduction is always a biological imperative is false, for in many cases reproduction may cause more harm than not producing.
    I never said that it wasn't "natural."

    I simply pointed out that it being "natural" doesn't necessarily mean a whole lot in and of itself. A lot of genetic and developmental conditions are technically "natural" and also negative.

    At the end of the day, homosexuality is a fluke, or biological anomaly. That's the point here.

    Such a thing is extremely unlikely to occur under any kind of natural circumstance.

    Again, even if it does, it would have nothing to do with homosexuality. Homosexuality is not any kind of deliberate counter-measure to population pressure.

    And it only "feels good" because it serves a reproductive purpose, and your genes have a vested interested in making you want to do exactly that.

    Again, regardless of how we may have interfered in the process, the simple fact of the matter is that without reproduction, there would be no sex. Reproduction is it's primary purpose.

    Frankly, judging from our out of control STD rates, it wouldn't appear that sex divorced from reproduction has been an especially positive development in human society anyway. It's a waste of time, and a rather dangerous waste of time at that.
