Animal "Homosexuality" vs Human "Homosexuality"

Updated on September 30, 2011

**THIS MAY OFFEND PEOPLE, But I love animals dearly so I did research and I chose to use my brain and not make excuses for my irrational ways. If me stating that I am not okay with people being homosexual offends you, then stop reading this now. What people fail to understand about me, is that I hate sin, not people. I sin like everyone else and in NO WAY am I judging gays. I am simply standing up for something I love and for someone to say an animal chooses to be homosexual pisses me off. I love animals and I am sick of homosexuals using them as an excuse to prove that being "gay" is natural. I don't care that you are gay, but don't drag something (animals) I love into your choice to justify your own sexual preference to feel better about yourself. If you are gay, then you are gay and either you except it or get help to change it, but don't try to justify that the same sex being together is "natural" or "normal", because if it was, two woman can reproduce without the help of science and so could two men. I am not a person that goes around bashing gays, in fact, I don't even want to hear about anyone's sexual life unless its my own with my husband! If you are gay I wont like you any more or any less than a straight person. I may not understand why your are, but its not for me to understand. I hope this does not offend anyone, because that is not the intention of this hub, it merely is to prove animals are not sexually homosexual, the way humans are.***

The animal homosexuality theory explains that...

Homosexual behavior happens in the animal kingdom, animal behavior; is determined by their instinct, the law of nature requires animals to follow their instincts, so, homosexuality is normal with animal nature and since man is also :animal", this nature of homosexuality is also normal for humans.This, however, only contradicts itself. If these "homosexual" acts among animals are normal with animal nature, then parental killing of offspring and same species killing/canibalism is also in natural with animal nature. So as far as man goes...Are we to conclude that cannibalism is also "okay" when it comes to human nature? How about parents killing their own children? In truth of an argumentation that homosexuality in being "natural", there is no "homosexual instinct" in animals. Its in lack of science and research; that human motivations and sentiments into animal behavior, & irrational animal behavior is not a riotous tool to determine what is morally acceptable behavior for humans. Anyone who engages in animal observation is forced to conclude that animal homosexuality and animal cannibalism are exceptions to normal animal behavior. In that, they can't be called animal instincts, rather normal animal behavior. In other words, their homosexual actions are not part of their genetic instincts, but things they simply do. When a chimp throws its feces, it is not out of instinct, but merely an action it chooses to do.To explain this abnormal behavior, the first observation must be the fact that animal instincts are not based by physical laws governing the physical world. In many instances, all living beings can adapt to circumstances. They respond to internal and/or external stimuli.For example, not all felines hate water, many do, not all of them though. Giving the circumstances, whether it be for food or change in weather, a feline will learn to and accept swimming/being in water as a means to survive.The fear (internal) and site (external) of water are overturned and the cat adapts as a motive of survival. Animal's mental processing is only sensorial, limited to sound, smell, touch, taste and vision. In that, animals lack the precision and clarity that human's intellectual perception have. Animals frequently confuse one sensation with another or one object with another. A male cat may confuse a neutered male cat, for a female; as the strong natural scent of the male urine is not present. An animal's instincts are intertwined with its nature. However, change in environment can greatly change an animals natural receptors.; other images, perceptions and/or memories can act as a new change in environment affecting the animals natural behavior. The conflict between two or more instincts is likely to override the animals original impulse. In man, when two instinctive reactions collide, the intellect determines the best choice to follow out, and the will then holds one instinct, while encouraging the other. With animals that lack intellect and will, when two instinctive impulses collide, the one most favored by circumstances/environment comes out on top. They base their instinctive impulse purely on survival, not chose of intellect as humans do. Sometimes, these internal or external stimuli affecting an animal's instinctive impulses result in parents killing their offspring, cannibalism and homosexuality. Homosexuality in animals can be explained as how "we" think we perceive it.To human eyes, a male dog mounting another male dog may be seen as "homosexuality" when it all reality, they do this to express dominance. When two male animals or two female animals engage sexually it is a demonstration of power, not sex; or it is simply an instinctive impulse bent toward survival or; confusion from the clashing of two senses. What we, as humans fail to understand is that animals instincts are geared toward reproduction and survival, that is it. Although homosexual behavior is very common in the animal world, it is very uncommon that animals have the desire to continually partake in homosexual actions for very long. It is in misunderstanding, that people try to compare human and animal behaviors, as if the two were the same. The laws of human behavior are different in nature and they should be thought/viewed where God had placed them; in human nature.

      I am a firm believer in what animals do, should never justify what humans do as being okay or natural. I love animals dearly and they are not an excuse for people to use to explain being homosexual, is normal or natural. If someone is gay, fine!

      I read your other hub on which you write to have sex daily.Animal sex is control by nature.They sex with anyone but in human it treat a sin.

      Although I will give you a vote of 'Interesting' for a very well-put and respectful argument, I must politely disagree, as well.

      I have a MS in mental health counseling, BA is in psychology, just for referential purposes.....

      There is homosexual instinct in animals, with life long relationships, as well. Many birds are noted for their monogamous lifestyles with same gender partners, and single mothers will donate fertilized eggs for them to raise. An entire species of whip-tail lizard is comprised of females only; they mate as if they were heterosexual and reproduce parthenogenetically.

      In response to chimps throwing feces - many of my professors trained chimps in college or during research (humane studies), and they report that feces-throwing is instinctual and a sign of a "smart" ape. Throwing is a form of communication for primates - linked to communication areas in the temporal lobe of the brain (Broca and Wernicke's).

      An animal's mental processing goes deeper than merely sensory. All humans share what is referred to as the Big 5 Personality Traits or OCEAN. (Google it - Costa and McRae) Horses, dogs, and dolphins also share these traits with us. I have personally had to train a rat in a Skinner box. The intricate detailing of the brain does not allow much wiggle room for the confusing of the senses unless some damage is done to the amygdala and/or thalamus, except in humans, where the cortex gets us confused every time because we over complicate things much of the time.

      Of my two PhD professors that taught the in-depth physiological aspects of psychology, both were devout Christians and believed homosexuality in humans is a naturally occurring process. This is their boiled down, scientific explanation: when an egg is fertilized, there is about a seven day span between when hormones are introduced to a)determine the sex of a person physically and b)determine the sex of a person mentally. If, during that span, the hormone balance is off for whatever reason, homosexuality, bisexuality, transgender, etc., can occur. We went into much greater detail, but I have babbled far too long.

      Great post begets long comment, though I guess.....

      Although we may differ in theological opinion, (I'm more of a Buddhist), I will always respect your opinion and stand up for your right to believe the way you want. I like to hear how others believe, but I also like to spread kernels of knowledge whenever I can. :)

      Yeah, I wasn't trying to start an argument with you, just express my opinion in a civil manner. I hope there was no offense taken. :)

      Thanks for your comment jdflom! You have every right to disagree. I am not looking to cause arguments or judge people just state what I believe in. I love animals but the way they process sex and sexuality is far different from how we humans do.

      I need to politely disagree here.

      I think your argument might be a little flawed or fallacious because homosexuality among animals is a lot more common in most or all the species, whereas cannibalism or parents killing their offspring is not a commonality in all species.

      Not to mention there is a clear cut difference in relating a lifestyle of homosexuality to murder. One is clearly hurting other people and infringing on their freedoms, one is not.

      And much like animals, while probably rarer in humans, some humans are cannibals, and some humans murder other humans, including parents killing their children. I'm not saying it's okay, but I am saying that it happens in the animal kingdom and with humans...

      One other thing to note: In my experience with my gay friends, it is not a lifestyle choice, they were definitely born that way and it's not something they can change. Much like freckles or hair color, it's part of their genetic make-up. There is also scientific evidence to back this up, and if you want links to articles, I'll be happy to provide. Based on that, I firmly believe that homosexuality is normal; and while I don't believe in god, I smile when I meet socially liberal christians who say god loves everyone equally and that homosexuality is not a sin.

      I will give you a vote of interesting because while I think what you wrote is a fallacious and I disagree with your position, it was interesting to read your point of view.

      Thanks for your comment liftandsoar! And I agree! I actually find Christians to be the most judgmental people. They think or at least act better then other people. We don't have the right to judge one another, only God does.

      Thanks ii3rittles. We are of kindred hearts on this matter. See my hub

      And yes, Alexander Mark, there are Christians who are homosexual. There are also Christians who are greedy, unloving, and illmotivated. That doesn't make these behaviors ok. A Christian is not someone who has overcome every sin and weakness, but rather someone who has turned to Jesus and trusts Him to forgive and cleanse of all the above issues, including homosexuality.

      Thanks for the comment Alexander Mark! The way I see sin is how I believe God views it... Its all equal. If a gay man believes in God and follows Jesus' teachings, yet is perfectly "okay" with being gay then I have to agree with you... But if they are fighting their ergs and seeking God's help then that's different. They are pretty much calling what God said in the bible a lie. God never lies. He actually calls what we call "homosexuals" sodomites or people of Sodom. They often had orgies with same sex and "gay sex" with each other which is not exceptionable by God. Not to many have the courage to speak of this because people don't want to offend others. I don't do or write these things to offend people but merely to show them that it isn't okay, not by my standards but God's. What they fail to realize is that they are sinning against themselves. It's sad. Thanks again for the comment and the fan mail! Really appreciate it! :)

      I wouldn't call a homosexual Christian, "devout," whoisbid, as the term implies that they are devoted to the principles of their religion. They may believe they love God, but they have to deny what the Bible says in order to excuse their behavior. That being said, there ARE gay Christians out there, but they have a lot of growing to do!

      ii3rittles, awesome hub! Although I do believe that animals are way more complicated than merely acting on survival, you definitively turned the pro-gay / animal argument on its head by comparing homosexual animal behavior to OTHER aberrant behavior. That is actually a no-brainer but I feel like a no-brainer for allowing the animal / homosexual argument to confuse me.

      We could probably take it a step further and point to lemmings that run en-masse over the side of a cliff to their deaths. It makes the whole argument sound completely silly. Excellent hub, thank you!

      There are so many people who are homosexual. Many of the homosexuals I know are devout christians.

      Thanks admiral_Joraxx & Tangoshoes!

      I am a firm believer in what animals do, should never justify what humans do as being okay or natural. I love animals dearly and they are not an excuse for people to use to explain being homosexual, is normal or natural. If someone is gay, fine! Your gay! DON'T BRING ANIMALS INTO IT! And God, aside, this theory that animals are homosexual, so its okay or natural for human's to be homosexual is further proof that people really live life with their heads up each others ass'! =p
