Sexuality has something to do with the Id, Ego, and Super-ego
Homosexuality has something to do with the lust for their own body that they satisfy it by engaging in the same sex. Transgenders have something to do with personality. For example, a transgender male has deep sexual desires for a female that he wants everything that a female wants including her sexual desires. So the male switches his role to satisfy his sexual desires by playing the female role.
But I'm no expert. But we are all truly heterosexuals. It's why I think God condemns homosexuality because it's narcissistic and egotistical on many levels.
could not have said it better myself.I completely agree...an over extension of egotistical self love.

You are being "rational" when you try to reject homosexuality. It's your Super-Ego. Nothing wrong with that.
Personally though I tend to be attracted to less macho men. Maybe because real macho men intimidates me. lol
Well, I don't think of the super-ego as one of Freud's better definitions. In that regard, I think he created discrete boundaries between the rational and the emotional just because he had his issues with drug use.

For my part, I'm not too large, and although there have been times in my life where I've been very athletic, I'm from a brainy family. It's personal for me to dislike macho behavior, but I genuinely find it boring too. That doesn't mean that I don't find an athletic physique attractive, I just don't feel that it's worth having prove my stuff to get!

Let's just say that at my age, I'm not interested in starting a family, blood pressure medicine may have cut back my urges a bit, and I'm not about to kid myself that I'm what the young gals are interested in! I have a romantic side, but I don't share it. Kids are punks and will over-think it anyway.

No, I don't think the eroticism of breasts is about a longing for mother. That's Freud's personal sickness. If anything, it's a kind of a projected "erection" thing that gives men a feeling of mutual participation and exposure.
Freud's hangup with his mother was probably due to several things. It's almost traditional in Jewish communities to have hangups about your parents. I'd suspect that that is due to the relative isolation that is expected from within and without of the Jewish community and the confusion that it imposes on the young.
Where did I say "for mother?" I said "good ole days," when someone obsesses with something, for any reason, it can often become sexual, then that person talks about it with their friends, and eventually they begin to see it the same way. It's more akin to a stereotype, but lacking a better term I said longing. It is an ingrained reaction within society that started somewhere, it's neither negative nor positive, it just is something that society has decided it likes to do now.

Freud was a fraud, he asserted stereotypes were definitive and reality, like any good psychiatrist would. They are not, stereotypes are a poor yard stick for any analysis. Stereotypes lead to confirmation bias, which leads to improper and failed findings.

<tippy toes in>mm.. I think homosexuality is an abnormality that though it exists in nature and we are part of it, it is still necessary for our "genetic" survival.

Perhaps someone hear recalls the experiment with horses I believe it was, left on an island to supposedly produce a superior race of horses. When they returned they found that the horses they had left no longer existed but small, horses like Sheffield's. Animals usually make it an omega in packs, no? If not killed and allowed to stay. But many are forced to become rogue if they survive their mothers.

As to morality, that is a different story. And I've known many heterosexuals to be narcissistic and egotistical. Personality development has yet to "scientifically" established: genetic or environment?

I think homosexuality is in the genes. Some have them stronger than others and some more predisposed to it than others. Engaging in homosexual activities however is a choice.
It is not genetic, it is learned behavior.

First, explanation of this assertion would be nice. Then some corroborating evidence would could seal the deal.

You assume I'm trying to look like a woman. You shouldn't assume, it's a sign of ignorance. I have breasts too, you made another assumption, but breasts prove nothing, as I pointed out, other than I am a mammal. Breasts are for food, not pleasure, also. The sexualization of them is due to infantile tendencies caused by the longing of "good ole days," it's actually a well understood psychological phenomenon. Not all living things, even in the inherently flawed binary reproduction system, have sexual desires of any sort. Nothing is sexual to me, and that's what you are missing. You are applying your own self image onto others around you, and thus become unable to perceive of anything different than you. Commonly it is called projection, the term in a psychological/anthropological sense is often misused, but you are exhibiting it in this post very clearly.
Get a clue, perv.

If nothing is sexual to you then why do you get off on wearing women's clothing?

...I'd leave the god part out!

Perversity is typically defined by that which is forbidden. The god part is part of the problem!

I tend to describe homosexuality as an obsessive-compulsive disorder, but impacting a different part of the brain than Tourette's or another type of OCD. I don't even necessarily imply that it's brain damage as much as an overwhelmed portion of the brain that could return to balance if the individual were moved to a calmer environment. That being the case, I'd call homosexuality more of a symptom than a specific disease.

Even rats are found to symbolically mount each other in conditions of overcrowding. It's kind of like using the nuclear option for getting your own space.

You make assumptions that certain forms of behavior are universal. Everyone does it. It's not always true.

That's a different level of preference. Personality is another factor that makes one more or less attractive.

To some degree, perhaps. After all, children are given about 12 years to mimic the adults around them, but at the same time, the mechanics of sex lead to choosing heterosexuality so really it's genetic too.

That may be the core reason why Christian conservatives don't want to see gays raising children. If it's their own children, it's nobody else's business, but I think it's a bit unfair to kids to bring them up in a politically charged environment before they are ready to make choices of their own.
