    The fact that nature partakes in homosexuality is irrevelent to humans partaking in homosexuality. They do not have the same ability to reason as humans do.

    • Erin Petrosky Erin Petrosky United States says:

      Sexuality is not something that involves reasoning. Just as a heterosexual person cannot become gay, a homosexual cannot become straight. Sexuality is innate and something that we are born with. Maybe you should educate yourself before you make any ignorant comments in the future.

      • Raven Johnson Raven Johnson United States says:

        But some heterosexual female humans do become gay...

        • Victoria van Arkel Victoria van Arkel United States says:

          They do not "become" gay. They were already either bi-sexual or lesbian and just hadn't experiemented/realized it yet.

            Listen to you making blanket statements. I suppose you're an expert in "Homosexual Reasoning and Genetic Traits"?

            • Juha Räty Juha Räty Finland says:

              There's enough science to corroborate that sexual behaviour does not necessarily reflect the person's true sexuality due to social norms and conformative pressure. In societies where sexuality is strictly controlled and narrowly specified, deviates are strictly punished either socially or by the law, or both, in quite a few countries even with death penalty. We don't need to go searching for societies where (heterosexual) marriage is inescapable, no matter what your true orientation was, they are so plenty.

              Likewise: many gay porn actors are actually straight for the simple reason that they earn more "becoming gay". You cannot tell their true sexual orientation observing their sexual behaviour.

          I have been gay all my life I've dated a few males but prefer females. My soon to be wife dated man before she dated me and thought she was straight after we became more intimate she told me she had had lots of crushes on other females most gay or lesbian people I have met that come out later come out later because they felt society would not accept them

        Erin we must all humble ourselves to your great and high level of education and expertise

      • kevin peterson kevin peterson United States says:

        You might want to educate yourself a bit. Many animals reason all the time. Just because you don't understand it doesn't mean it isn't happening. Reasoning is how species survive. Animals reason to determine how and when they should hunt, build their shelters and they know what plants are safe to eat. But hey, maybe you think they're just dumb animals.

      • Hijas Labt Hijas Labt United Kingdom says:

        Being born isn't the start of life. If you believe people were born gay it still doesn't account for what happened during pregnancy. You just full of it. You have absolutely no proof of your claims. You can speak for yourself only, unless you have done successful experiments on people.

      • Shawn McIntyre Shawn McIntyre Trinidad and Tobago says:

        Well, If you believe that you're just an evolved animal, I think i can understand how you conclude statement is correct

        • Juha Räty Juha Räty Finland says:

          Well, if you think you're NOT anything but an evolved animal, I don't know what you make of the fact that we share 98.8 percent of our DNA with chimpanzees. Human species is so full of itself!

          The more we learn about ethology, the less remarkable our own "uncomparable" characteristics delude. Only six decacdes ago it was a revelation to discover that chimps made and used tools – something that we thought was exclusively a human capability. Now we know that even crows are at least as clever with tools than chimps ever were – and that a crow beats a 9 year old human in problem solving skills. We also learned that animals do have emotions, social structures and skills – even language; ability to prepare for the future; make plans and strategize; and even fish are able to create complex and aesthetic "works of art". Math is neither our exclusive creation: even ants do it on an impressing level. Even educated fleas might do it, for all we know. www.bbc.com/.../20121128-animals-that-can-count#:~:text=But%20the%20real%20maths%20wizards,parts%20of%20their%20mathematical%20toolkit.

          So what is it exactly that makes us more than an evolved animal? The history of science has shown time and again that our exceptionalism is nothing more than the less we know, the more we think we know.
