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.
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.
I personally recommend checking oneself for OCD at least once every 5 minutes.
