First of all, let me state for the record that I am not for or against homosexuality. This is still a (mostly) free country and if this form of
relationship is what you want, then have at it.
It is after all your life to live.
As for the hows and whys? I believe that most homosexuals are following an inner drive... an instinct in the same way heteros follow their own. In
other words, most instances of homosexual tendency are natural to the individual.
But, that now being acknowledged, I think we should also recognize what is most likely an abnormality to the human machine. Sex is a form of
reproduction to guarantee the survival of the species. Drives to mate and the emotional ties most often associated with intimacy are all part of the
mechanism. Short of that, the separation of the genders has no logic and no apparent reason for being.
Detailing this one step further, if you had two remote, isolated islands with one populated by heterosexual males and females and the other populated
by homosexuals, you might check in on them a century later to find that only one still had human habitation.
If homosexuality is natural to the species, and I believe it is, then it is most likely a kind of abnormality or birth defect. Unfortunately though,
nature has selected them for ultimate extinction because they are not inclined to mate in a way that reproduces naturally.
Finally, I think that homophobia is just another form of human ignorance... of the same type that produces racism, bigotry and politicians. We do not
ridicule the handicapped and disabled so, why should we tolerate it it with homosexuals?
These people are our fellow human beings no matter what their sexual proclivities.
