    This is a rare occurrence in modern society.



    What's interesting about it? Are you suggesting I excluded hetero and others from this or are you looking for something to be offended over?
    Phew, I’m so happy to hear this no more gay bashing.

    Not all do. Have you really never met someone who did not want children?

    Just because brown eyes are more common than blue eyes doesn't make brown eyes "natural" and blue eyes "unnatural".
    But green eyes though!!!

    No one has green eyes. “Green eyed” people are just people who cant accept that they’re really just hazel eyeds. They are just trying to be different.

    I don’t get it, but that’s probably because I have green eyes.

Of course, that definition would include the detonation of nuclear weapons, extinction of species, MMGW (if true), etc...
    Sex doesn't always feel good. It does for men, but for women there are a lot of things that can make it painful. Being forced to have it against your will being the main one. The fact you assume it feels good for women when it's reduced to "breeding" mechanics is pretty much what privilege is all about.

    Well, here’s the thing:

    “Natural” inescapably carries the connotation of “good” in everyday parlance. Why do you think we see “Natural” used on the labels of commercially-available food products, for example? We’re meant to associate “Natural” with “wholesome” and “good.” Simple as that…

    With respect to sexuality, “Natural” has undoubtedly carried the mantle of “good” in recent history. “Pervert” – synonymous with “bad”, no? – has always meant one who turns away from that which is natural, true, and good. So, in that context, describing heterosexual sex as “natural” cannot reasonably be divorced from describing it as “good” as a way of contrasting it with non-heterosexual sex. Even if one loudly insists that one did not mean one’s statement to be taken that way, that’s exactly the way that substantial numbers of readers are likely to take it.

    As for what “nature dictates”, nature is a typically a great deal more subtle than what human moralists tend to assume. Yes, it makes sense that most individuals are driven toward mating with a member of the same species and of the opposite sex. That’s the combination that leads directly to offspring, after all. But it doesn’t follow that every individual who isn’t so driven is defective or somehow useless to the population as a whole. In fact, having some percentage of the population be otherwise inclined may significantly enhance the survival of the species over time.

    Take color blindness for example. At first blush is might seem that such a trait would be selected against and so die out relatively quickly. But it turns out that color blind individuals are more sensitive to certain kinds of visual contrasts in low-light situations and therefore may be better able to spot potential predators than normally-sighted individuals. Thus, it may have been to the advantage of the average protohuman group to have at least a couple of partially color blind individuals in their midst. That’s one example of how a trait that might be individually disadvantageous can nevertheless persist and thrive.

    And I’d argue that variations in human sexuality are much more complicated and intertwined with human culture than partial color blindness.

    Cheers.

    Are you denying it is far less common?

    There may have been less, it may have been on the decline. But with all the hate that Trump is advocating, and the reversal of protections, it is difficult to say where we will wind up.

    Lost ground, nonetheless.

    Why do you think this? What evidence do you have?
