Ah, another homossssexuality thread...
Normally I'd just read and be entertained, but I have a little theory on this subject. I believe that people hide behind religion when it comes to
voicing their opinions against homosexuality. Why do I believe this? Let's all find out together.
Reproduction is at the VERY bottom of our evolution. It is the first and most important thing that makes the very essence of a life form. Without
it, life would cease to exist.
In fact, it is so key that it pertains to organics that are not even considered alive, like viruses.
Human reproduction is sexual, as is much of the reproduction that occurs in earth based life. However...
Seed: The Gay Animal Kingdon
Homosexuality evolved in tandem with vertebrate societies, in which a motley group of individuals has to either live together or die
So, homosexuality may be programmed in all of our DNA, even if it may lie completely dormant in 70% of us, and completely dominate 10%.
All well and good, but what about the 70%?
Here's where my brain has filled in a gap. To those whom experience zero homosexual tendancies the very thought of such completely contradicts their
most basic genetic program of reproduction. Even the thought of homosexuality is a gross violation of their most basic instinct and of all instincts
and congnitive thought derived from that most basic instinct. And since we are a violent species (just look around), anything that violates our prime
reason for existence is going to cause fear, anger, and hate, which as we all know, leads to suffering.
Now most people have grown up with at least a small iota of religion, and religion becomes the easiest way to rationalize their attavistic abhorance.
I'd go as far as to say that the concept of homosexuality could take an otherwise nonreligious person and transform them in a process that's so
layered in the psyche that the new religious person that emerges has no idea why it happened.
To overcome this negative reaction to homosexuality it takes an open mind and a willingness to be more than a primative, aggressive product of
evolution. We are a nasty, vile species that is prone to hatred, conflict, war, and murder, so it takes a proactive effort to overcome our natural
tendancy toward aggressive, negative emotions.
I remember in my early teens I did indeed have assiduously visceral reactions to the idea of homosexuality. I had to take positive steps to overcome
this as well as distancing myself from negative reinforcement.
So in conclusion, all you need is love.
Yuck, I have to get this serious taste out of my mouth. I'm going to go find a thread where I can post something in gross violation of terms of
service and hopefully make a few people chuckle before I get warned.
