Sorry but that makes no sense. I think there are more than a couple posts in this very thread that prove that, even if gay is marketed as trendy, heterosexuals are not going to swayed.
The impact of this plot to make the gay lifestyle attractive to curve population growth is probably close to nil.

Nonsense, now thats your opinion right there.
You have no evidence of this Mr. ALL KNOWING Phage.
I do believe the way this entire gay acceptance movement has been heading is not healthy. The reason I say this is that it is becoming "an absolute" that if you are gay you were born that way. Yes some are born that way, some become gay out of circumstance. It is this latter group of teens that are being negatively effected in the long run I am concerned about.
Now every facet of society says "its ok, you were born this way and it is not your fault" this is very nice for those that this holds true...but for those that we are using as an example this makes them feel they have no choice. They then live the life they may not have if they understood it can also at times be a choice.
I had same sex relations. It was just sex and the emotional portion never would happen. I have since those teen years fallen in love with my wife and raised a family and grandchildren. I have been in love three times with women...but cannot with men. I can have very satisfying sex with either or, but do not have the capability to fall in love with a man.
I look back and think if I was that age now I never would have had this wonderfully fulfilling experience of being in love with someone. The scent of a woman....ahhhh...the female energy dancing with the male energy. It is in me and I would have missed it.

As a currently single male, I just want to publicly state my appreciation and support of gay men everywhere - as each and every one of you is yet another guy I won't be competing against in my quest to actually find another relationship before I wither and die.
If that's un-PC I apologize. But it's honest.
Re the OP: Some of the greatest ancient civilizations not only accepted homosexuality - but considered bisexuality to be the norm. The Greeks and Romans come to mind. Obviously they did not suffer any citizenship shortages from these practices at all.
Given out current circumstances, I'd sooner worry that our diets or lifestyle choices are going to make us sterile, thus jeopardizing our future as a species, and not spend a second thinking that we're going to be wiped out of existence by too much of "the gay".

Yeah sure, if homosexuality is accepted, everyone will turn gay!
If we keep on accepting homosexuality as something normal in society all over the world then soon people will see it as the next cool thing to be. Its gonna be a trend just like #ty music these days is a trend and its gonna spread like a virus until more than 50% of the world population is gay and the straight people are gonna be the sick thing in the world. Homosexuality is NOT acceptable.
