We should be programmed sexually in order to reproduce right?

I don’t think being gay is “normal” because I think we should be programmed sexually in order to reproduce. I can understand bisexuality and pansexuality though. The reason why I don’t think homosexuality is normal is because it seems to defy the reason why we have sex drives. Am I right?

by the way I am not against homosexuals, I just don’t think it is “normal” in the same way heterosexuality is.

  • Since no one answered based on religion, I shall try: the Bible has the following:

    1) sex is for reproduction
    E. g. Genesis 1:28 be fruitful and multiply.

    2) the entire Song of Sonolom wrote about sex WITHOUT any hint of childbearing.

    3) the story of God destroying Sodom in Genesis shows God forbid homosexuality. (There are many more scriptures elsewhere.)

    So to conclude, sex is for reproduction, for pleasure, but has it's boundaries and homosexuality is forbidden.

    • I used to be a Christian until I found out it is a big deception. If you have enough interest and time please watch this video. https://youtu.be/KQpxa32WqEc

    • I'm agnostic. I read the Bible because it has many good principles. Just like all books (religious, scientific, etc) have theories we agree or disagree with, we do not reject a book completely just because of some disagreement. True wisdom is to extract what is good and use it to benefit our life, just like using Google - it's full of junk search, but we glean the good to complete a project or task.

  • Statistically, it certainly isn't normal. This is not a value judgement, simply a fact, just as statistical outliers are off the typical distribution map.

    • Again, to female downvoter, there is nothing wrong with exceptions to the rule, but that's what they are--exceptions. Even if you buy the grossly inflated 10% figure that Kinsey pushed once, that's still an outlier on a frequency distribution.

  • It's natural, and studies have found that generally 5% of any given population (of a decent sample size) is homosexual... this is an occurrence with other animal species... of course the "social norm" is heterosexuality since thats the majority of most peoples sexuality, but it is naturally occurring across all facets of nature and in that way it is "normal".

    • But certain disorders are also present in more than 5% of the population. Also in some animal species.

    • Homosexuality has been accepted as common sexuality in practice in various cultures throughout time... its only been taboo in modern history... unlike disorders, it's also been discounted as a disorder.

  • I appreciate your sense of logic, but it turns out that for the human race to propigate, only a certain percentage of the adult population needs to reproduce. So from an evolutionary standpoint, having the "gay genes" present in a small percentage of the population doesn't hurt and it's as natural as any other genetic variations are.

  • No, the earth is already over-populated. We don't need to reproduce more.

    • Yes, we do need to reproduce more, to some extent or else we would just die off. But I know what you mean. I was not saying the population needs to grow, I am saying that the purpose of having a sex drive is primarily for reproduction. Homosexual people existed long before we over populated. So it’s not like they came along because we overpopulated

    • What is your definition of normal?

    • Well, I take that back, nobody's completely normal. Everyone's sexuality, as well as gender, is different. xx ~ Mrs Manson

  • Here's why people who don't reproduce should be applauded: http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/

    • It's not like Earth is missing population.

    • Okay but that really does not answer my question. The are not homosexual because of over population

    • Not because of overpopulation but because they consider same sex relations satisfying for them. Overpopulation means that we should not condemn them.

  • as humans, and owners of this planet, it does not matter what nature programmed us to do, as our own free will is above everything else
