(Isn't she fucking hot?!?!)
Here is a problem that I've been wondering about lately. I hope my readers (if any) will pardon my ignorance on the topic. If I state something out of place, it was not done intentionally.
Let's talk about sex. Or even more specific, homosexuality.
The debate: choice or born that way? I would have to say that I think personally, that they are born that way. I mean, if I had to make the choice between making love to a man or a woman (being a man myself) why in the hell would I choose a man?
That being said, here's the problem... if homosexuals are born that way, there must be a gene for it. If there is a gene for it, then it must have somehow evolved. So that leaves me asking the question: What is the evolutionary advantage of being homosexual?
As far as I can think, there is none. It would seem to me that natural selection would favor heterosexuals. I mean, a homosexual couple is obviously unable to produce offspring, thus halting the passing of the homosexual gene.
It doesn't work on the creationist view either. If god created people and doesn't want them to be gay, then obviously he wouldn't have given some of them the "gay" gene.
I've got no doubt that it's not a choice and yet my logic tells me that it's not nature either. Input anyone?
