nonsense, their is no imperative for gays to procreate, they cannot pass the genetic code onto the next generation, you cannot get past pseudo scientific claims and get hold of the FACT! that there is NO genetic predisposition which causes someone to engage in a gay sexual act and frankly I am fed up having to point the fact out to you.
This goes WAY beyond mere procreation. That is a dodge, a strawman. When people think of sex, 99% of the time it is for recreation not procreation.
That works for all the shades of gray of sex. The fundamentals of sexual attraction goes way deeper than the need to procreate. The need for simple companionship for instance whether straight or gay.
I am surprised you equate sex with JUST procreation when it is obviously a LOT more than that.
It looks like you think if we just can find the brain imbalance that creates homosexual behavior then we can find a way to correct that imbalance, as just one example of gay as a medical problem.
I have a feeling most gays would say bullox to that, we LIKE being gay and will not change it no matter how much society tries to force normalacy on them.
It's like the work being done on deaf people. There are cochlear implants that can at least partially restore hearing to the deaf. But now we find a large contingent of deaf folks who don't think of themselves as disabled in any significant way and will refuse the efforts of the medical community to restore or give first hearing to formerly deaf people.
The latest on that front is stem cell research that is building from scratch the entire inner ear and that with the subjects own cells so when they implant the entire thing inside an ear, it will not be rejected. That could make a LOT of now deaf people have normal hearing.
But there is a large number of the deaf that would still refuse such treatment saying we have nothing wrong. YOU are the problem not us.
I think you would find the same reaction in gay people also.
There HAS to be a genetic component to being gay, otherwise it would have been genetically wiped out a million years ago.
Gene's are not 100.000000000000% perfect. You should know that. There is a condition where an infant is born only with one ear, maybe one in a million kids like that but there is a LOT higher percentage of people being gay, at LEAST 1% maybe as much as 5% of ALL people, ALL races, ALL cultures who will INEVITABLY turn gay, some realizing it at the age of 3 and it is NOT due to mommy thinking she really wants a girl not this cute little boy and therefore dressing the kid in girl's clothes and such. Perhaps that happens now and again but that is not the case with most gay people.
