Please read entire post.
We have all heard this said many many times on ATS and elsewhere:
Homosexuality leads to extinction.
Accepting homosexuality is the catalyst.
I am creating this thread in the hope we can all be as honest and objective as possible. Please put forth evidence to substantiate the premise, or
evidence to the contrary. My hope is that it will become clear this gloomy fear is not
supported by observable truths. My hope is then people
on ATS will stop spreading what I strongly feel is misinformation.
I will be using 10 of the Gay Friendliest Countries in the World
for the rest of
the post. I then plugged each country into Worldbank.org to see both crude birth rates and population growth
Derived from total population. Population source: (1) United Nations Population Division. World Population Prospects, (2) United Nations
Statistical Division. Population and Vital Statistics Reprot (various years), (3) Census reports and other statistical publications from national
statistical offices, (4) Eurostat: Demographic Statistics, (5) Secretariat of the Pacific Community: Statistics and Demography Programme, and (6) U.S.
Census Bureau: International Database.
Birth rate, crude (per 1,000 people)
Crude birth rate indicates the number of live births occurring during the year, per 1,000 population estimated at midyear. Subtracting the crude
death rate from the crude birth rate provides the rate of natural increase, which is equal to the rate of population change in the absence of
United States 14
South Africa 21
As you can see acceptance of homosexuality in these countries has not stopped the "breeders" from making babies.
Population growth (annual %)
Population growth (annual %) is the exponential rate of growth of midyear population from year t-1 to t, expressed as a percentage.
United States .7%
South Africa 1.2%
Unless I counted wrong there are 18 countries in the World with a negative growth rate. My list of countries have positive, not negative, growth
rates. So despite the acceptance of homosexuality in these countries, heterosexuals are able to birth enough babies to continue an
increase in population.

to compare the stats to all other countries.
What about the World in general?
UN projections and US Census Bureau the world population may rise to 16 billion
by 2100; according to the lowest estimate, it may decline to only 6 billion.
Homosexuality makes up an estimated 3-10% (from what I have seen) of the World population. Homosexuality is not contagious! (it hurts to even have to
say that). There will continue to be 90-97% heterosexuals in the World, potentially making babies.
