Homosexual behaviour is natural in the animal and plant kingdoms.

One fundamental premise in social debates has been that homosexuality is unnatural. This premise is wrong. Homosexuality is both common and highly essential in the lives of a number of species. Many people that have homophobic sentiments will tell you that homosexuality is uncommon and an unnatural phenomenon that can only be found in perverted human and not the creation of God. This is an archaic, baseless and unfounded view as there are plenty of “NATURAL” examples to show that homosexuality is natural occurring not only in humans but also in plants and animals.  As we all know God does not make any mistakes, surely if homosexuality was against His will he was NEVER going to allow such indiscretion to occur in His natural kingdom. Animal and plant science will prove that same-sex relations are natural pivotal to the survival of the animal kingdom.

Male big horn sheep live in what are often called "homosexual societies." They bond through genital licking and anal intercourse, which often ends in ejaculation. If a male sheep chooses to not have gay sex, it becomes a social outcast. Ironically, scientists call such straight-laced males "effeminate." Giraffes have all-male orgies. So do bottlenose dolphins, killer whales, gray whales, and West Indian manatees. Japanese macaques, on the other hand, are ardent lesbians; the females enthusiastically mount each other. Bonobos, one of our closest primate relatives, are similar, except that their lesbian sexual encounters occur every two hours. Male bonobos engage in "penis fencing," which leads, surprisingly enough, to ejaculation. They also give each other genital massages. As this list of activities suggests, having homosexual sex is the biological equivalent of apple pie: Everybody likes it. You name it, there’s a vertebrate out there that does it. This whole idea or argument that same-sex relations are unnatural is grossly untrue as biological science of “natural” animals clearly shows this.

In closing, anyone who still has archaic ideas about homosexuality being an unnatural and repulsive clearly demonstrates that you have no grasp of metaphysics, science and the Bible for that matter. Homosexuality is a social phenomenon and is most widespread among animals with a complex herd life. If homosexuality is natural in the animal and plant kingdom, then there is the question of why evolution hasn't eliminated this trait from the gene pool, since it doesn’t lead to reproduction. One thing that does seem to be exclusive to humans is homophobia. The funny thing is that people say homosexuality is unnatural, that non-humans don't engage in homosexual behaviour, but that's not true. It seems clear that homosexuality is just as natural in humans as it is with other animals and plants. Same-sex behaviour is a nearly universal phenomenon in the animal kingdom, common across species. If homosexuality was unnatural why would God allow plants, animals and humans for the matter to engage in such indiscretion His natural kingdom?
