No worries. Thank you for apologizing. I understand your reason, people were pretty harsh to you on this thread; I have read the remarks. I did not take it personally, just wanted to continue or discussion. Your posts have no politically correct inhibitions, so I thought you would be fun to talk to.<quoted text>
I wasn't trying to be mean, you seem to have a partial amount of knowledge that you use to make conclusions. That is simply dangerous.
1. At the most, you are describing bi-sexual behavior, not homosexuality. However, brief contact with the opposite gender for mating is common among animals. Another example on the other gender would be Orca whales. The females stimulate each other before the male,'slam bam thank you maam' intercourse.
However, using animals to justify human behavior is risky. Often anal intercourse among animals is simply an expression of dominance. Humping dogs also eat sh/t and lick butts...
2. I brought up the Cinderella Effect because you mentioned two males raising the young.
"In evolutionary psychology, the Cinderella effect is the alleged higher incidence of different forms of child-abuse and mistreatment by stepparents than by biological parents. It takes its name from the fairy tale character Cinderella. Evolutionary psychologists describe the effect as a remnant of an adaptive reproductive strategy among primates where males frequently kill the offspring of other males in order to bring their mothers into estrus, and give the male a chance to fertilize her himself."
3. I have lived through the evolution of a number of theories about homosexuality. A domineering mother and absent father was before a psychological disorder. Genetics were more recent. A number of other ideas before that. You may want to look up the current idea,'homosexuality and epi-genetics'.
Again, I am sorry for sounding harsh, I am used to being assaulted for having divergent views.
Again, I do not feel strongly about this subject, so I may not be the most informed or educated in this matter. I think you know more than I do in regards to this topic. Yes, you are right, the animals' behavior I was using would be best described as bisexual. I was trying to get away with another fallacy, since I do not know enough about this topic, ha... I know now that I can't get away with these with you.
Are you saying that adopted children of homosexual parents will be subjected to the cinderella effect?
