    Uhhh...yes.

    But there are also hundreds of animal species who exhibit homosexual behaviours - both in the wild and in captivity - so homosexuals can also be found in the animal kingdom - there's even a pair of male penguins who are raising a chick together.

    Usually though, when one refers to homosexuals, they are talking about gay people - both gay men and lesbians (gay women).

    Oh, and the other meaning of 'gay' - happy? Yes, many homosexuals are also very happy! This particular gay woman (me) is gay in both senses of the word!

      Wow, Jacqui, you're also a happy animal?yes, happiness should be enjoyed by anyone in the animal kingdom. On the other hand, there are also gay( men and women) who are not Homosexuals? or vice versa? Any input on this? Thanks for dropping by.

      They could be bisexual or pansexual, if that's what you mean. But yes, anyone can be 'gay' in the happy sense and not be a homosexual.

      Rodrigo are you talking in terms of the word Gay regarding sexuality? or as it was traditionally used as a synonym for "happy"? If so, it is possible for homosexuals to be "gay" but "unhappy" with aspects of their life like everyone else.

      Well, you caught me in this,Dashingscorpio!  because of the double meaning of "Gay"- as in male-male, female-female sex sexual orientation or a state of well-being as in Happy or Sad as u said. I wanted the discussion fluid as possible. No limit? TY!

    I suppose some of them are, some of them aren't. I don't think sexuality is automatically indicative of someone's happiness levels.

    'Homo.' Of the same kind. 'Homosex.' Of the same kind of sex. 'Sexual' implies a form of seduction, sensual, the act of having sex. 'Homosexual.' Two species or humans of the same sex who find ways of enjoying sex together, or being sexual, sensual.

    Gay is a term or label used for them: male, male; female, female ...

      Great Manatita!! In other words, male-male sex, female-female sex sexual orientation, all are GAYS? some people will define Gay as the state of well-being, Happy, Sad, Euphoric, etc. Thanks for dropping by...
