Evolution creates homosexuality. There must be a survival benefit for a species or it would rapidly die out. Insecurity is likely a different survival mechanism.

I figured this was a sequel to the popular Al Pacino film.

I like to think s13ep's avatar is holding a katana on his other hand. Katana would really bring his thing together.

It's a lie that you have to be gay or straight, insecurity stimulates homosexuality, but you can be insecure.

What do you mean when you say "its a lie .... " ?

 

Are you saying being gay is a choice?

As I understand him, he says the following:

Men are naturally straight, however, they might be insecure about approaching the opposite sex, and therefore they turn to homosexuality as an "easy solution".

Mind you, his opinion, not mine.

Bruce, I understand you have been active with the queers (at least that's how I took it from the thread I linked...). What is your opinion on how sexuality evolves? The way I understand it, is that it is a mixture of genetics, hormones and social factors (I especially take interest in the latter...

I hope he isn't suggesting what you saying...that would be ridiculous and lacks any real understanding of homosexuality

 

 

Yes I am very active around support for the LGBT community and have gay friends. There are 2 main reasons people are  gay, most gay people are born this way. They can no more change there sexual orientation than a person can change there race

 

Then is a small percentage of gay people who can become gay through abuse, of course this is rare and Im not in anyway suggesting the majority of abused children will become gay or would become paedophiles themselves

Oh, the title made me think you were swearing off women. Then I read the OP, and was just confused.

 

I basically agree with Ben No 3. Sexuality is a scale. On the two ends, you might have "100% straight" and "100% gay", but most people fall somewhere in the middle. So you might be, say, 95% straight, with a small desire to experiment with homosexuality. However, a small tendency to homosexuality is usually suppressed due to pressure from society.  

But theoretically, yes, if you were very insecure around the opposite sex, and very horny, you might decide to experiment anyway.

 

Whatever floats your boat, I always say.
