- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
You are however trying to imply because it happens in the animal kingdom it is more than choice. In the animal kingdom this may be true. In humans however, no evidence to support this one way or the other exists.
The only thing they did not have was the wheel. So no I am correct.
It proves people see what they want to see contrary to facts.

Biological exuberance: animal ... - Google Books
You can find out more about this "random person" on his wiki page: Bruce Bagemihl - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Turns out his book used as a source is rather famous and well respected. Damn those "random people" on Wiki and their damn habit of sourcing things so any person can actually check and see who the random person is.
Homosexuality in animals is seen as controversial by social conservatives because it asserts the naturalness of homosexuality in humans, while others counter that it has no implications and is nonsensical to equate animal behavior to morality. Animal preference and motivation is always inferred from behavior. Thus homosexual behavior has been given a number of terms over the years. The correct usage of the term homosexual is that an animal exhibits homosexual behavior, however this article conforms to the usage by modern research applying the term homosexuality to all sexual behavior (copulation, genital stimulation, mating games and sexual display behavior) between animals of the same sex.
PS I read the article and as I said before animal motivations and human motivations are two separate and distinct things.
No evidence at all exists to show homosexuality is physical or anything else for that matter.
