i also think that the gene could have a purpose: population control, if everybody was heterosexual then wouldn't that cause a massive increase in the growth or our population where it would become rapidly too big for the limited resources we have on earth?

So it's fair to say that homosexuals are like serial killers in that respect?
not quite. serial killers kill people.
homosexuals don't kill anything as it never existed in the first place.
unless you're a gay serial killer. in which case 'surprise butt stab'?

homosexual serial killers (assuming they are killing homosexuals) would be a genetic mistake, since they are not taking breeders out of the gene pool.

Homosexual serial killers (assuming the serial killer is homosexual) would reduce the population but not spawn a subsequent generation of serial killers thus avoiding population control spiraling into genocide.

Ergo: Homosexual serial killers aren't as bad as heterosexual ones

I commented, rather off-handedly and probably altogether too casually, that I believed that homosexual behaviour was, scientifically speaking, a genetic mistake.

The co-worker went quickly ballistic.  Red faced, stuttering, apparently barely able to contain the urge to strike me.

Noticing this display I quickly added that I personally saw nothing wrong with homosexual behaviour, and that people should be able to fuck whoever they want (within obvious reason), but the co-worker was having none of it.

She blurted out "You're the last person I would have thought to be a homophobe", which both shocked and dismayed me.  Obviously my opinion on the scientific validity of homosexuality is not a popular one, but to be labeled a 'homophobe' should one not be against the practice of homosexuality? 



Well personally, gays absolutely terrify me to no end. Genetically speaking however, I think they're the best thing since spliced bread.

I don't think viewing homosexuality as a genetic mistake makes you a homophobe,  you neither fear nor dislike gay people.  On the other hand it is awfully rude.  

As an example, I view blue eyes as a genetic mistake.

I'm not the least bit offended, I'm just curious as to what brought you to such an idiotic-seeming conclusion.

Because blue eyes are a genetic error caused by missing both copies of the gene that makes brown eyes.

Why?

 I don't think the rest of your post went into detail about why stating an opinion is rude.

What draws the line between what's rude and what's not on the subject of genetic mistakes?

Is a tranny a genetic mistake? A midget? Downsyndrome? Left handers? It's very broad.
We appear to be doomed by our DNA to repeat the same destructive behaviors our forebears have repeated for millenia. If anything our problem solving skills have actually diminished with the advent of technology & our ubiquitous modern conveniences. & yet despite our predisposition towards fear-driven hostility; towards what we anachronistically term primitive behavior another instinct is just as firmly encoded in our make-up. We are capable as our ancestors were of incredible breathtaking acts of kindness. Every hour of every day a man risks his life at a moments notice to save another. Forget for a moment the belligerent benevolent billionaires who grant the unfortunate a crumb of costfree cake. I speak of pure acts of selflessness. A Mother who rushes into the street to save a child from a speeding vehicle. A person who runs into a burning building to reach a family trapped on the upper story. Such actions,such moments,such unconscious selfless decisions,define what it is to be human

At lunch today a co-worker and I were talking and somehow the subject of homosexuality came up, and I made the grave mistake of saying what I really thought about the subject.

I commented, rather off-handedly and probably altogether too casually, that I believed that homosexual behaviour was, scientifically speaking, a genetic mistake.

The co-worker went quickly ballistic.  Red faced, stuttering, apparently barely able to contain the urge to strike me.

Noticing this display I quickly added that I personally saw nothing wrong with homosexual behaviour, and that people should be able to fuck whoever they want (within obvious reason), but the co-worker was having none of it.

She blurted out "You're the last person I would have thought to be a homophobe", which both shocked and dismayed me.  Obviously my opinion on the scientific validity of homosexuality is not a popular one, but to be labeled a 'homophobe' should one not be against the practice of homosexuality?  I am honestly not, I don't care what others do sexually, and think men and men and women and women are fine... I just happen to believe that there is no genetic benefit to the practice, and therefor is probably a mistake in nature.

So, opinions... clearly I talk too much, and don't think enough about what I say before I speak, but am I a homophobe?

Are you a homophobe? I have no idea, you'd know best. Do gay people scare you or otherwise make you uncomfortable?

Well, there's your answer.

I will say that you're not a particularly good scientist. Homosexuality can cut down on population growth, which can devastate a population if left unchecked.
