Is "Homophobia" As Natural As Homosexuality?

Is it, and why/why not? I wants to hear from a scientific perspective and theories. #Lgbt #Gay

My Opinion:
Homosexuality can be a population control to avoid overpopulation, inbreeding etc., but homophobia also has a function. It exists to encouraging people to make more children and have bigger families to avoid letting the specie die out. The evolutionary theory says the species are supposed to attempt surviving, so this theory may make some sense I guess. Xenophobia, prejudices etc. are also natural to have because of the tribalism. To make your own tribe survive in the hunter and gather societies when there were a battle about the resources it made sense to try to protect your own tribe and avoid potential enemies. It's difficult to tell who's good and bad in advance, therefor people wants to be more careful around strangers. Especially if you're not familiar with them; their "race", religion, culture etc. They may be a potential threat.

Today we're not living in a hunter and gather society, so it would make sense the rules would change. In the past the world's population was significant lower than what it's today. Today we're on 7+ billion peoples. In addition a globalization has happen, so people have to be more cooperative now than in the past. So I think homosexuality is natural and therefor you can't use the unnatural argument against it. Earthquake is also natural, but no one is commenting on that. I also think "homophobia", racism, xenophobia etc. are natural. But nowadays we've other artificial technologies like medicines etc., so we can fight against xenophobia etc. too although it's natural. Not all natural things are positive and unnatural things negative.

  • In nature, dogs run in packs with other dogs. They don't mix with cats and snakes. Deer run with other deer. A lion pride is composed of lions, but no cheetahs or ocelots. If you look at human housing patterns, people tend to segregate themselves. Miami has Little Hanava, SF has Chinatown, New York City has numerous ethnic enclaves.

    Most of us prefer to be surrounded by others who we deem as similar to ourselves. It makes our environment more predictable and we perceive that as being safer for us.

    I do not have any disdain for homosexuals and I have several acquaintances who are homosexual, but I am a heterosexual and I feel more comfortable being around other heterosexuals.

    I resent the label "homophobia" because it represents an effort by the left to impute a certain mental attitude to me which can then be held up to public scorn and ridicule. It is an effort to control my thoughts by trying to shame me for my beliefs. . . and this comes from the same crowd that wants to lynch slut shamers or fat shamers!

  • Homophobia is natural since it's an aversion to something that is disordered. Homosexuality is very unnatural.

      Then why do most men enjoy watching lesbian porn?

      @mistixs, because of men likes to watch beautiful women. If there's two beautiful women instead of one, there's more eye candy. In addition men likes to imagine the two women offering him a threesome.

      Lesbian porn may be very popular with Millennials, but it's not popular with men of my generation, and it's certainly unpopular with men of my father's generation.

  • I’ve thought about this, being bisexual myself. I wouldn’t put it past anything that homosexuality could be a natural population control. There is WAY to many damn people on this planet. Also, humans are not the only gay species. I think it’s very normal.

  • We pass on genes not only by reproducing ourselves but by enabling others in our family to do the same. Parents raise kids in the hope that one day they'll pass on the family genes. Being gay pretty much stops this from happening so its no surprise that people wish to discourage sons from being gay by being hostile towards gays.

  • Homophobia is a bullshit term created by Cultural Marxists and militant homosexuals, who want to convert the world to their way of sex.
    Homosexuality is self-evidently unnatural, so I do not want any part of it.
    The idea of touching another man sexually makes my skin crawl.

  • yes it is. cause to everything that seems foreign to you, you react by distancing yourself from it. it's our very primal mechanism to avoid sickness, cause the low level primal instincts don't "know" that homosexuality isn't a contageous illness.

  • Homophobia is kind of a made-up term. Not many people are actually 'scared' of homosexuals. It's purely a phrase that means "someone said something negative towards homosexuals"

  • I think men have attempted to chisel a definition of manliness out of hard marble, but have been unable to do anything about the fact that the material they work with has a crack in it - literally. The intensity of butthole stimulation rivals that of penis stimulation for men, and I think the fact that their vulnerable butthole can bring them to tears of submissive joy when violated makes them extremely cautious about making sure absolutely everyone in their hearing understands that they have no desire to be submissive to another man. And of course they go overboard with it and go on to condemn anyone else doing it, like they can eliminate the crack from the world if they could just get everyone to agree to ignore it.

      Yes. A gay guy can find a trans man attractive if he looks, sounds, smell and act 100% like a biological man and it's impossible to distinguish him from other men because of good surgeries etc. Both straight, gay, bi etc. can be attracted to people looking like their preferred gender although they're not it biologically.

      but if that woman who became a man retained his woman parts, then they had sex, would that gay man be gay?

  • hate is nurture not nature whereas homosexuality is nature not nurture

  • What a funny term. Homophobia, etymologically, means "irrational fear of the same". So a homophobe is a man who runs screaming at the sight of another man. The fact that it's used the way it is means that it's just a weaponized word, meaning "you're scared".

    A dislike of homosexuality is natural. A dislike of anything you don't see as the right way is natural. Homosexuals use the argument that they're born that way, which is true; it's a genetic abnormality. Psychopaths are born that way, too. It doesn't mean I have to accept either one as normal
