The Myth of Homophobia
Thesis: Humans have evolved with certain inborn inhibitions that biologically serve to promote the preservation of the Homo Sapien species, and improve the chance of successful reproduction and the genetic diversity, health, and survivability of their offspring.
For centuries, anthropologists studying different human tribes, ethnic groups, cultures, and civilizations have observed that humans overwhelmingly avoid certain behaviors regardless of environment, available resources, or social context. The instinctual behaviors include but are not limited to: interspecies mating, intergenerational mating, and close family inbreeding.
The fact that these three behaviors are universally avoided regardless of geography, religion or culture suggests humans are restrained by instincts that serve a useful and evolutionary purpose. Consider the scientific rational for the following generally avoided behaviors:
Inter-species mating (interbreeding): Humans are biologically hardwired to avoid mating with other mammalian species because of anatomic incompatibility and failure to procreate. This instinct protects the continuation of a species by restricting sexual drive to anatomically compatible mating partners of the same mammalian group. Without this biological instinct, humans would erroneously seek out incompatible species for reproduction, fail to reproduce, and threaten the existence of our species.
Intergenerational mating: Fertile humans, instinctually avoid mating with infertile members of the opposite sex. Physical aging provides a useful biological purpose, which is to signal fertility and help humans direct their sexual drive to partners that offer the best chance of reproductive success. This explains why a typical, sexually mature male would prefer to copulate with a young woman rather than a post-menopausal woman or a prepubescent girl. Without this hard-wired preference, humans would erroneously direct their sexual drive towards infertile mates, fail to reproduce, and threaten the existence of our species.
Close-Family Inbreeding: Humans, and their primate ancestors, instinctually avoid mating with close kin (such as the mother, father, and sibling) and instead seek out partners outside of the nuclear family to secure the genetic diversity and health of their offspring. Without this innate instinct, people would misdirect their sexual drive to close relatives, produce genetically defective offspring, and threaten the adaptability and survival of future generations.
It has been universally observed that humans have developed strong cultural taboos against bestiality (inter-species mating), wide-gap intergenerational mating, and incest. Many religions ascribe meaning to these inborn instincts and interpret them as Gods laws. While many evolutionists dont ascribe any cultural meaning to these inhibitions, they do recognize their profound biological function and evolutionary purpose.
Considering the reasons provided herein, if you feel an inexplicable repulsion or discomfort toward homosexual partnerships- understand that your sentiment is not prejudicial (i.e. homophobic) but biological. Your sentiment is based on a natural procreative instinct that for millions of years has served to ensure humanitys propagation. Social conditioning and acculturation alone may not be enough to reverse this normal physiological hardwiring.
Good luck with that.
