Thanks for your post - I really needed a laugh tonight.
This hogwash is wrong on so many levels, I don't even know where to start.
Why would TPTB have to promote homosexuality to stop us from procreating? Why not just promote a heterosexual childless lifestyle as the cool lifestyle? Why not just secretly sterilize a large percentage of us? That makes just as much sense as what you said.
For such a long time, heterosexuality has been positioned as the "right" and "normal" and only acceptable way to be, and yet..... we still have homosexuals! What makes you think all the heteros out there are going to all of a sudden change to homosexuality, when all the homosexuals haven't been able to change to heterosexuality? It's because you are attracted to who you are attracted to, and no amount of marketing or advertising or "uber coolifying" is going to change who you are attracted to.
Seriously....you made me laugh....

I have never seen or heard of homosexuality mentioned in the same capacity as snapbacks and Justin Bieber. Or is there a higher ring of "uber cool" I'm missing here?
* 5% of women and 10% of men fall solidly into a middle level of the Kinsey scale of sexual preferences. However, when accounting for people's actions and attractions, as many as 25% of women and 46% of men could be labelled as bisexual.—Dr. Wardell Pomeroy, director of field research for The Institute for Sex Research
these men now have a new way to enter the world of acceptance, societal enlightenment if you will, and even "coolness" by becoming homosexual. Once a man has a homosexual experience, especially if it is quite gratifying and the man is young, or it is his first experience, epigenetic changes will be begin to occur, leading to bisexuality/homosexuality.
“It’s a very provocative, very interesting new twist that is plausible,” said Margaret McCarthy, a neuroscientist at the University of Maryland who studies how hormones influence brain development and was not involved in producing the model. But, she cautioned, so far the theory “is not supported by any data.”
Indeed, Andrea Ciani, an evolutionary psychologist at the University of Padova, thinks that a variety of factors, including genes and epigenetics, influence sexual orientation. “It’s a little bit vain to think we’ll find the answer to homosexuality as a whole.”
Eric Vilain, a neuroscientist at the University of California, Los Angeles, worries that the model, which “might be true,” makes a few simplistic generalizations. “It assumes the same mechanism [for development of sexual orientation] in both sexes . . . and that androgen levels play an important role in the development of sexual orientation”—neither of which has been demonstrated, he said.
Fascinating as it may be to understand the biological basis of sexual orientation, however, not everyone is convinced it’s a necessary line of investigation. “Should we test this? Is it important for us to know?” asked McCarthy. “Homosexuality is not a disease, it’s part of natural human variation. I’m not sure there’s a good reason to delve this deeply into it. I think we’ve reached the point that we have enough evidence that there’s a biological basis for sexual orientation.” It would be more helpful to people to get a better handle on the epigenetics of cancer or mental illness, she added.
I am demonizing the way that TPTB are using homosexuality in a purposeful way to try and depopulate. Perhaps demonizing isn't correct, more like awareness. It may not be a bad thing to depopulate if most human jobs are going away. I am just aware of the manipulation that is going on.
