There was a study of rats done that showed when life is made too easy/comfortable the number of homosexual rats explodes to like 99%. Otherwise it's basically zero. And yet many of you claim that it's social rules that restrict people from being into the same sex in those countries with less money. I think you're wrong. Maybe it's just that people aren't consciously aware of why they do things. But it's easy to waive banners and shout about being born a certain way.

  • No. LGBTQ is not a choice, and not a luxury.

    There are many LGBTQ people who live in the developing world. Unfortunately for many of them, it is not safe to be open, and in some cases it is punishable by death or jail.

    In the "developed" world, where we have more widespread human rights, LGBTQ people can be more open. But in places where it is still dangerous, many of us have to hide for our own safety.

    Even for those of us in developed countries, it can hardly be described as a "luxury".

    You forget. It was just over 50 years - within your parents' lifetime - that Stonewall happened. Gay rights in the US and Canada are still being fought for.

    Pride is a protest, and will continue to be a protest alongside a celebration.

    It doesn't even take going back too far in "developed" countries to find LGBTQ people who had to pretend they were straight or who faced great odds to openly be themselves.

  • well it's more being OPENLY lgbt+ is quite a privilege that's seen in MOSTLY developed countries

    • Is being openly heterosexual also a privilege?

    • @slatyb well yeah because heterosexuality has always been the norm in every country for centuries, plus people don't usually feel the need to be 'openly' straight because it's normalised anyways

  • I am not surprised by this. According to my religious beliefs, I believe man is born evil by nature. I think most people would say man is basically good. I think man is evil.


    When you have people who are are spiritually dead due to original sin, and their natural state is to be in opposition to God and commit sin, then the less effort and time they must spend on the necessities, the more time they will have to indulge in sin. As tech increases, making life easier less effort and time are required to complete the mundane tasks that are the necessities of life, leaving more time and energy to sin with.


    As it’s been said, idle hands are the devils play things.

  • You still get hanged or imprisoned for being LGBTQ in many countries. Its a "luxury" to be born in countries and at a time where you can openly express your sexuality.

  • They are more visible in wealthy countries because developed countries are generally more tolerant.

  • In a lot of countries they would be beheaded.

  • I don’t think it has anything to do with being rich, it’s just that first world countries are more accepting while LGBT+ in other countries need to hide who they are

    • So just a coincidence that all 1st world countries are rich.

    • I mean a country having money is part of what makes them a 1st world country lol

    • I believe what makes a country 1st world is that it's industrialized & capitalistic. Later on people realized that 1st world isn't specific enough to compare countries to each other so they came up with the human development index (or somesuch) which assigns percentages to strengths in various areas like medical care, housing, jobs and so on.

  • The modern LGBTA movement is a government power grab taking advantage of people who feel insecure and using them as meat shields. It is no friend to the people it claims to help and support.

  • No, I felt attraction for men and women before I even understood what sex or being "rich" meant.

    • Did you choose to be straight @hahahmm?

  • they're everywhere, but it's more "accepted" in first world's permissive societies.
    reason so many are well off is b/c most work and have no kids.

  • Unfortunately

  • It's a trend that won't last long

  • Are u saying sucking dick would be a luxury for you? Just go for it, dude. Live in luxury.

    • Actually, I’ve learned about homosexual behavior in rats in school and it has nothing to do with how easy or comfortable life is for them.

    • Just accept that you were born gay and move on.

    • In school? What school? They weren't teaching garbage when I was there. You must live in a blue state or some eurotard country
