I dont. because anyone who uses the word 'extrapolate' on a stoners forum, seems like a goon to me
:rofl:

I'd add my two cents..but this thread is all over the place....Soulmates, Sri Lanka, gay cats, whores....0.o

yupp agreed....another thing that bothers me is that when a girl is seen with different guys and some automatically label her as a "slut"....but a guy seen with different girls all the time is seen as a "player"....no negative connotation attached. of course there are exceptions to this when a girl actually does go around tryin to hook up with every guy around for purposes other than actually liking the guy...and i believe same goes for guys as well

Some things we do in america would seem extremely gay to other countries through SOCIAL CONDITIONING of everyone, just as we view some things as gay in other places (such as two men holding hands and waving them back and forth)
man this type of social conditioning isnt just in places like sri lanka, but it is a perfect example your example spri7e this instance.

every society brainwashes, to a certain degree, its people into forming a cohesive "culture" and when you are born into this "culture" it will be highly influential on how you re-act in any give situation for the rest of your life.
i think that our attitudes towards what is sexuallay appropriate in very highly influenced by our culture.
thats why things like male displays of affection vary so strongly from place to place.

sadly many cultures are based on outdated ideals (im talking about sexism and fear/hate of homosexuality) that do not foster human growth or evolution.

That's why it's good to "clean out" your "operating system" every now and again with a nice cleaning agent. If you catch my drift ;)
no, no i dont

and now i do :D

how is homosexuality on par with human growth and evolution? it's counter evolutionary... you cannot replicate genetics with the same sex

Again a limited view of evolution...

Just because they aren't passing on their genes per se, the evolution of homosexuality may indeed have benefits for mankind. They will use their fashionista skills to make us all look fabulous, increasing our reproductive chances, while their recessive genes slip on by into the next generation, especially from closet homosexuals, as they are necessary for building our society as it is! Not really true, but I mean, think of humanity as a bee hive, do a couple gay bees fuck the whole hive up or do they make it tidier? ;)
I personally recommend checking oneself for OCD at least once every 5 minutes.

I've read all about the evolutionary theories on homosexuality, and I disagree with that which you refer to: the passing on of genetic traits through influence in society rather than direct sexual methods. If anything, homosexuality on an individual basis is like a biological death sentence. I think the whole theory that there is a gene or a series of genes that make the carriers more attracted to men and that's why apparently sisters of homosexuals have a lot of kids is more believable. Maybe there's more to genetics than I think, but I don't believe organisms can obtain genes from external influences unless through some fucking complicated ass way environmental behaviorism crosses the threshold of the mind into complex molecular structures coded into us. Though I don't really care for much of a complicated subject, I hate evolution. Specifically its psychology, where every feminized 'scholar' adds in new theories contributing to the pussification of mankind. :violin:

but yeah, fabulous :lol:

i was talking to my friend mike the other day about this.
he was saying how he understands its perfectly natural for a percentage of humans to be homosexual. hell, its normal for most species to have homosexual members. mike is really into darwin and was saying how passing on your genetics through sexual reproduction was a dominant part of our evolutionary psychology.
so homosexuality appears "counter evolutionary" but its such a limited view of thinking that there had to be something more complicated going on
so we began to hypothesis why having a certain percentage of your population unable to reproduce would be beneficial to the species, and thus the percentage would stay consistent. we didnt come up with any good theories tbh. we pretty much just talked about how we wish we could understand why.

One of the things I was taught in animal behavior was to realize that pretty much all behavior has an evolutionary advantage. Not to say that all behaviors are great adaptations, but behavior such as homosexuality which is so widespread, must have a reason for remaining in the human gene pool.

Also I'm surprised I didn't comment on this to Jokersace. This is what I mean. They are unable to reproduce but beneficial to the species and so we maintain a constant percentage of homosexuals.

Look at eusocial animals like ants, bees, wasps, termites. Most of the individuals will never reproduce, they just work to keep the hive alive and working so that the queen can keep reproducing more and more workers.


And also, as to the whole "double standard" of girls being sluts while guys are players, you have to understand sexual selection and that it has evolved as male competition over female choice. If a female isn't choosy about her partners, she is actually worsening her chances of passing off her offspring because she will give birth to someone with inferior genes. A male is supposed to just spread his seed as much as possible. I'm not saying this is right or moral, just that it is biological.

Very well said sir.

Took me a couple of goes at figuring out the whole worker bee analogy, but i got it in the end.
Death is the only certainty. EVERYTHING else is variable.
