    I'm sorry, Josiah, but that comment came off as a bit homophobic. Not all gays or lesbians use each other just as instruments of sexual pleasure. Many have sex for exactly the same reason that a straight couple with no intention of having kids would have sex: because they're attracted to each other, in love, and want a physical and emotional connection with the one they love.

    There is a world of difference between homosexuality and "weird sex crimes." Namely, that difference is consent. Homosexuality is nothing like bestiality or pedophilia, because an animal or a child cannot give consent, but a person of the same sex as you can.

    • Sarah Northwood Sarah Northwood United States says:

      maybe an example that is more similar would be between a father and a daughter or siblings.  What is it that tells us that something like this is? If there is not a standard of right and wrong, it is left up to each person's judgment. That leads to the breakdown of society.

      • Joyce Harris Joyce Harris United States says:

        This is probably the most appalling thing I've ever read. This is not a good example by human homosexual standards! The best example is by Leigh Sabio above where she emphasizes consent! Taking anyone sexually without consent is just wrong!

      • Jay Cathran Jay Cathran United States says:

        NO!. Ignorance breeds more Ignorance. Who do you think CREATES THE STANDARD? The Majority, The Ones in Power, etc. Homosexuality is demonized because the Majority "Claims" to be Heterosexual. EXACTLY the same way that BLACK People were demonized when "The Majority" was White people. The article is stating FACTS about Animals of ALL different species, and how this has been known for CENTURIES, but never been talked about because of BIAS. The fact is that the research shows that Homosexuality is every bit as Natural as Heterosexual behavior, and it only got it's bad wrap, because of people that are SCARED! And at the end of the day, in my experience, people that are ignorant  and dedicated to their beliefs will not believe anything you tell them EVEN if you have Undeniable PROOF. That is a prime example of Ignorance. Choosing to not believe the truth because it doesn't fit well with your lifestyle, religion, etc.  I can't believe that people still care about someone's sexuality. Noone thinks twice about all the horrible things they see on the news everyday, all the terrible things that their children are exposed to on a daily basis, etc, etc. But they get all Heated because a Man is with another man, or woman with woman. Homosexuality has been around since the beginning of human history, it's nothing new. And it wasn't always Taboo either. Just like Eating Red Meat every meal and lots of Fatty Foods wasn't always Taboo for your health. Times change, the world changes, and you either adapt or die. That's the real Darwin.  Sidenote: I was in the closet for many years, and every Person I have ever personally known that despised Gay people, and talked about it all the time, WAS GAY!. Talk to any real therapist or psychologist, when you point out a flaw in someone else it is something you see in YOURSELF!. And that is the reason it affects you the way it does. Or it is something that you are scared of in Yourself. Therefore, it is YOUR PROBLEM, NOT theirs. I live my life to be happy and don't worry about other people's problems. I have way too many of my own to deal with. And more than anything, I have way too many flaws that I know of myself, to go around trying to point out other people's or trying to judge others. It's Easy to say being Homosexual is Bad, when you are Heterosexual. You Dont know WHAT you DONT know!.

        I have personally met lots of men that also were married with kids, that went to the gay club on the weekends or spas to have anonymous hookups with men. They ofcourse never told anyone, but the POINT is that it is much more common "More of a Majority than realized" and  therefore Natural or Standard, NOT the exception. That's my 2 cents. Believe what you want to , Live and Let Live,  

        I believe in Facts, being kind to others, and trying to have empathy and understanding of others, not judging, and Living my best life being the Best version of Myself I can be. If your upbringing or religion teaches you something different , then that goes directly against what the Bible is all about. Good day!.

    • J.R. Sorrow J.R. Sorrow Japan says:

      Homophobic, why when people disagree with homosexual behavior are they deemed homophobic? I am not fearful of homosexual people but if I disagree with that behavior I'm called homphobic. It does not take a rocket scientist to see how men and women are created and it doesn't take a rocket sceintist to see how this thing is supposed to work.

      • Brian Cartwright Brian Cartwright Canada says:

        If I disagree with Jews acting Jewish, am I anti-semitic? Yes. If I want black people to stop acting so black, am I racist? Yes. You don't know what the word phobia means. It's not just "fear". It's also "aversion". Look it up. Jesus.

        • Ed B Ed B Canada says:

          I disagree with homosexual behavior.  I also don't think people should get tattoos. I disagree that people should eat dogs or dolphins.

          Disagreeing with a persons or groups behavior does not constitute a phobia.

          • Sunny McCullough Sunny McCullough United States says:

            Notice, too, the only one resorting to hateful ad-hominem attack is Mr. Cartwright.  :?  Sadly, that is typical.

            • Carol Cumbie Carol Cumbie United States says:

              The same people that gave Obama a Nobel prize are you kidding me. I breed dogs and there are times dogs hump other dogs it is a pecking order. When one wants to declare dominance over the other.I have friends who are homo sexual it was their choice. There may be some that are born that way but not the amount that are out there. They want everyone to make it legal but they should have went for a contract because it will never be a marriage that is between and man and women and with that there would be no children. How homo sexuals were treated was wrong. Now it seem homosexuals are trying to get back at every with the lawsuits.it will only hurt things. If I had a son or daughter if someone made them happy I would be okay with that. I don't believe what they are saying about the animals.

              • Stephanie Kerry Stephanie Kerry United States says:

                So are you saying that I, a straight woman, should not be allowed to marry my straight male husband because we do not intend to procreate?

              • Ringspider Webb Ringspider Webb United States says:

                The article definitely uses weasel wording to make the research sound convincing, in order to push an agenda. In this case, I think it is more likely that this area of research is neither taboo or too embarrassing. It wouldn't make the researcher subject to ridicule either. The area of research just isn't that rich. 1500 animal species is about a thousandth of a percent of the total number of animal species not including insects. So the actual numbers suggests a transient trait selection rather than anything significant to speciation.

              • Bob Henderson Bob Henderson United States says:

                I believe, Carol, that is referred to as "willful ignorance." Denying a scientific study because it conflicts with your bias is such tiresome pattern. Your opinion has nothing to do with fact. If you think something that has been researched is incorrect, I encourage you to do some research of your own. Go do some field work and read some books. If you can disprove what this article says by using the scientific method, your idea will have an inkling of validity. Until then, leave your opinion out of research.

              • R Dawn Bieniek R Dawn Bieniek United States says:

                Of course you don't. I'm sure that you won't check the sources provided by the article or try to do a little independent research either, because the more factual evidence you find that contradicts what you've already set your mind to believe will only provide you with more facts you'll have to deny. Denying the truth on a full time basis is exhausting, I'm sure. Especially when you still need to find time to condemn people while simultaneously telling everyone how accepting you are.

      • Jay Cathran Jay Cathran United States says:

        At the end of the day, Noone asked you if
        lity. The
        article is
        about the
        fact that it
        exists NO
        what Joe
        agrees with
        with. It's not
        an article of
        Opinion. It's
        not about
        someone thinks or
        feels. It's
        about the
        documentation of
        lity in the
        kingdom (which includes Humans)and how prevalent it is. Being Homosexual is not a choice. Trust me I didn't choose it. I tried being straight for a while , but i literally could not do it. I believe that like the article says Bisexuality is much more the Norm than Homosexuality is. I think there are a TON of people that are attracted to both semesters, and a much smaller percentage that are 100% Homosexual or Heterosexual. Once again, my beliefs don't really matter, but that is just my theory. Curiosity is one of the greatest attributes of Humans. It is the reason we are the Dominant species Today, and why we continue creating new technology, medical inventions, etc. So being Curious is 100% Normal and that directly translates into our sexual identities and sexual habits. Don't knock it til you try it! I have had married men hit on me with their wife sitting 20 ft away from them. Sex ( AS THEY HAVE PROVEN) is something Instinctive, It's something Primal, and very much Animal Like. There is science behind it both Heterosexual and Homosexual. You carve others sexually from their smell, looks, etc.

    • Tama King Tama King New Zealand says:

      Moral of this report? If you want to engage in base animal behaviour such as homosexuality then go and join the pigs.  The whole point of Judeo Christian values of heterosexual love  especially within a marriage is to bring out the best in man and to fulfill our purpose.
      Descending to the basest od animal behaviours is nothing to be proud of. To God it is abominable behaviour. To normal folk it's disgusting and offensive.
