    Lots of people seriously suggest homosexuality is a danger, especially conservatives who fancy themselves the guardians of the best in human history and tradition. Why was homosexuality frowned upon so naturally for 100,000 years, all over the world, by almost everyone?? Because proper sexual behavior is important, in fact, a matter of species survival no less. Today we see black sexual behavior, for example, broken down and the horrible results. It is a perfect example of how important proper sexual/romantic/familial behavior is. A major goal of conservative human culture is to transmit proper sexual behavior since sex is the way we survive.

    That's actually not true, in ancient Greece, ancient Rome, acient India, and ancient China homosexuality was regarded as a normal facet of life. Homosexuality wasn't broadly frowned upon until the middle ages. Also, historical recordings only go as far back as 3500 BC, certainly not 100,000 years

    No, conservatives want to force their whackadoodle religious beliefs on everyone. For them, bronze age fairy tales are what we should all follow(even if they don't really follow them).

    dear, life was mostly about survival. those that didn't reproduce or were less likely to would not have been considered heroes. Do you believe in science and evolution??

    It wasn't. The Greeks, Romans and Vikings, for example, only had a problem with the people who were on the receiving end; as long as you were the dominant one, they didn't care.

    Greek society was fragile, tiny and based on the heterosexual family actually. It was a basic survival strategy thanks to what they call evolution. And even at that increasing population was a huge issue. NOw do you understand?

    Oh, I see: you're one of those people who cannot admit that they are wrong and simply double down on their position when challenged.

    I don't know about heroes, but I can tell that if you study ancient art and literature, homosexuality was a normal facet of life. The word "lesbian" actually comes from an ancient Greek story about a goddess from Lesbos island who had a romantic relationship with another woman.

    Please break down "black sexual behavior" and tell us what that has to do with homosexuality.

    Tell you something I've found interesting.

    Homosexuality was only explicitly banned by Muslims/Christians (not surprisingly both of which share the same roots), while it was never a taboo (though not positively encouraged) in East Asia typically Japan and China. However since westernization/modernization (whatever you want to call) in the 20th century, they began to have laws to ban it following the civilized western nations.

    Interestingly in the 21th century, most western countries became so progressive thus legalized the same-sex marriage. Well it's the time their Asian "students" who still persist with the original taught, which appears as if Asians are more conservative about same-sex? This ironical history tells us the notion of westernization is changing all the time.

    What does 'black' have to do with it?

    FTR, most of the black people I know are conservative. Some are very conservative - as in, no sex til marriage etc.

    Like I said, religious whackjobs are not interested in reproduction or the propagation of the species. They are interested in spreading their ignorant fairy tales to as many people as possible. Their stupidity is the main driver of discrimination against homosexuals.

    Now we don't have bizzare superstitious fears controlling our cognition. We know that homosexuality isn't contagious and that it only effects a tiny number of people. Further we don't need a growing tribe, there are plenty of people.

    I agree that homosexuality is unnatural. But your statement is rather silly and really just wrong, don't you think? If conservatives are such bastions of what's, "best," then why have so many been guilty of things like extramarital promiscuity and pedophilia (ex.: Conservative House Speaker Dennis Hastert, Newt Gingrich, Donald Trump...)? Furthermore, and contrary to your assertion, most advanced cultures not only tolerated homosexuality, they revered it (ex.: ancient Greece and Rome from which we derived our laws and form of government). And why does your topic title read 10 million years and your content only mention 100 thousand years? Just how far back do you think modern humanity goes?

    The human race is not that old so with that large error you undermine all your other statements such as all or even most cultures had have a problem with homosexuals,

    At least not 10 millions years now I just taken note that you had reduce the age to 100,000 years so what is it 10 millions years or 100 thousands years?

    See the Greek for an example of your other claim being nonsense.
