well, since i didn't live bck then, sorry, i don't know what their corerct term was for what is in modern times referred to as a homosexual. my apologies. nor do i have the time to go & find that term and use it in the post you put into question.<quoted text>
There was always those thought the races shouldn't mix, but that didn't prevent a lot of race mixing in the Civil War era, nor did it prevent all interracial marriages. It's rather ironic to condemn those who advocated for racially segregated marriage to argue for gender segregated marriage.
Really....the word "homosexual" wasn't coined until the late 19th century. It's possible they might have been aware of individuals who were, queers, as in odd, or might have been aware of same sex sexual behavior in the abstract historical sense, but I highly doubt from contemporary experience.
so, yes, i don't believe that our founding fathers had their heads buried in the sand and were naive enough to have missed or not been aware their neighbors that that were not with members of the opposite sex. if you think they were....well, that's on you. nothing i've read shows me that they were that ignorant (using the dictionary meaning of ignorant not the colloquial definition) as to not be aware of people that were same sex attracted.
