    Well i want to know two thins about this subject and if you are homosexual it would be great to her your input also

    1).What exactly defines homosexuality? Could you be homosexual if you are in a gym full of naked guys and you get a boner does that make you gay?

    1a). If you answer yes do that above statement does that mean if you don't agree with it mentally your still classified under that

    2). Is homosexuality natural or is a "gene mutation" me personally i believe its a mutation but I'm walking into this subject with a clean slate.

    2a). If it is natural how can you have evidence showing that this is a natural occurrence

    2b). If it is a gene mutation could it possibly be that the X and Y chromosomes are mixed up some time during the developing fetus (also who is to blame for this the male parent or female parent).

    3). How can you not be attracted to a naked female? Well what i want to know about this one is if you see a naked female/male you are completely turned off with no intent to do anything with that person

    And finally

    4). What other species show intercourse (I guess would be the word) with the same sex

    Friend, the world may never know.. Same as how are there different races or species. The world is what it is and the mind knows what it wants

    you shouldn't think about such things. Thoughts like what you're expressing could lead to sexual experimentation and before you know it you'll be gay. I've seen it happen. Best to keep your thought on normal tings like women and God.

    1. If you find yourself to have sexual feelings towards other people of the same gender repeatedly, you can be sure you are likely homosexual to some extent. An inconvenient erection doesn't mean a whole lot unless it happens, you know, every time. Not every erection is sexual.

    1a. N/A

    2. Nobody can really tell you. The links genetically haven't been found yet, but then again, there is still a lot of genome to figure out. This is one of the ongoing debates regarding homosexuality.

    2a. Nobody can prove it.

    2b. If anything, it is likely to be a hormone imbalance contributed to by the X and Y chromosomes, though it is likely that it can involve two or three other chromosomes depending on what exactly has changed. Unless you know what defines homosexuality physiologically, it is hard to say what defines it genetically.

    3. There can be many reasons for this. ED (erectile dysfunction) can happen in males, generally older males, that basically leaves them unable to achieve an erection without the likes of Viagra. The women could also just flat out not be attractive to the male. Not every male is attractive to every female. Not even being naked can always fix this. If you're wondering about other reasons, the rest are either psychological to some degree, or the person is a homosexual (and presumably male judging by the context given). When women aren't attracted to men, everything outside of the ED still applies in the opposite direction.

    4. Many animals species show homosexual and transgender tendencies. It's not nearly as uncommon as people would like to believe within the animal kingdom. I have no specific examples at this point, as I haven't talked about animals in specific in awhile, but it is not that uncommon.

    1st of all, experimentation will not make you gay.
    Second of all, there is nothing wrong with being gay.
    3rd of all, if you are gay, thinking of women will do nothing.
    4th of all, god may or may not help, depends if you believe or not.

    What up with all the homosexuality threads up in here today?

    Anyway:

    1) Being "Homosexual" is defined as living a lifestyle explicitly sexually attracted to those of the same gender as you.

    2). Pfft your guess is as good as mine. Scientists claim they're close to finding a "gay gene" but even if one would exist IMO your ultimate decision would probably be a combo of your background + your choice. I've seen gay people turn straight, I've seen straight turn gay. That makes me think its more of a choice matter.

    3) 1 (You are a straight female) or 2 (She be ugly).

    4) EVERY species I know of, I had lesbian mice. BUT since animals are not as "developed" as humans I wouldn't really be looking to them as a resource. (Again, all IMO).

    I hope that clears some things up. Homosexuality is normal, it's not something to be feared or hated, or something to be ashamed of. Of you are straight, gay, bi, or want to change gender... it doesn't matter. You are you, and you feel however you may feel. If you're confused, talk to an adult you trust (maybe a counselor?) and sort things out.

    Not trying to be rude, but dickfour, please don't make this a religious thread; you're entitled to your opinions but I don't want to see a religious debate on homosexuality and I don't wanna scare the kind into thinking it's wrong. IT IS NOT. Science=/=religion and they shouldn't mix when not called for.

    Animals of the same gender don't have sex with each other, although they do sometimes hump each other as an act of dominance, lol.

    Animals such as mice have a genome that is very, very close to humans (about 97% or 98% the same if I remember from the work I did last year researching). They are absolutely ideal for searching for genetic links, due to how close the genome is. It is likely that if something works one way on the mouse or rat, it will work the same way on a human. Also, rats are genetically closer to humans than mice by one or two percent, so they are used more often for the likes of medicine testing for diseases. That is also because if it works on the rat, the medicine is very likely to work on a human the same way.

    Exactly; it's not something you can control. See? Like; how could you look at "girl x" and not be turned on, but "girl Y" does? These things are out of our control. These sort of things have numerous factors, including but not limited to

    *surroundings of living for person
    *people who raise/teach person
    *friends, family, etc.
    *just... the person themselves.


    There is the whole Nature vs. Nurture debate, and soooo many other things I can bring up. To keep it simple. It is OUT OF OUR CONTROL to what our true sexuality is. Not to mention sexuality is not even an important factor to most living creatures.

    @ JoostinOnline: You know humans are animals by definition, too, yeah? [​IMG]

    I knew this one guy who took ate a lot of birth control pills at once, and started crying and acting all emotional like a female, pretty funny. Maybe if he acts like a female from the hormone imbalance, one could presumably "be" a female (mentally) from birth.
