So I assume you believe there’s no god.
Which means you probably believe in evolution.
So then how do you justify your actions?
Explain to me how it is scientifically and evolutionary permissible to be homosexual or transgender.
I honestly want to know.
I do believe you’ve already gotten the hint from my good friends here that your behavior with this post was unacceptable. However, I thought it might be helpful for you to understand why this thought process of yours is actually counterintuitive. Maybe you’ll learn something, and the next time someone brings up your point, you can actually be helpful to the world at large and teach them the same thing I’m about to teach you:
Sexual behavior in all forms, including homosexuality, being transgender, even polyamory, is genetic. It’s natural, in the sense of “being in nature”. It is not a solely human trait. It is not Satan’s plot to spread evil in a big sinner sandwich. The fact that people have not caught onto this yet means that we’re thousands of years behind every other species on the planet, congratulations.
Did you know that homosexuality is at least 50% directly attributed to DNA? If this country wasn’t so trigger happy it’d probably be even more. Did you also know, that in cases where a female is closely related to an openly homosexual male, her rate of reproduction is dramatically increased? There’s your “permissible”. I’d like to know why it’s permissible to act in such a foolish manner as yours. At least we’re helping the survival of our species.
You’ve probably been told that the closest animal to humans in terms of genetics is the chimpanzee, and while that’s true, there’s another animal that is just as close, if not slightly closer, than they are. They’re called the bonobo, and they don’t often keep them in zoos for one very simple reason: they really like their sexytimes, and zookeepers don’t want all the little kids asking why the monkeys are wrestling and moaning like that. Another fun fact: the entire species is bisexual. Pretty cool right? You know that community of naked poly hippies your mom saw on that camping trip once? That’s basically the bonobo.
In reality, a whole bunch of species have sexual traits that are often attributed only to the sins of humanity. Giraffes have one of the highest rates of homosexuality and bisexuality. Black swans, which are well known for being caring partners who mate for life, have a male homosexuality rate of 25%. And that’s not just banging, they raise kids together with the help of surrogate mothers who leave after the eggs are layed, and their children have a higher survival rate than hetero swan couples. What about transgender, you ask? Obviously that can’t be natural, it requires a much higher form of thinking than—oh, wait. Lions, king of the jungle? Try queen of the jungle. Many lionesses have been observed in the wild as having their own pride, mating only with other females, and chasing away males that try to come into their territory. The extra surge of testosterone from being all awesome and butch and pridelord-y even makes some of them grow manes. Hello drag kings.
The coolest part? The other animals are fine with it. How can some wild creature even understand the concept of “unnatural”? Nothing about animals is unnatural, and, lo and behold, we’re animals, just like everything else.
That is why it’s scientifically permissible. Because it’s in every corner of the world, in every kingdom and species and subspecies, every niche, and every culture. It’s permissible because it’s real. And, I’m sorry OP, but do you know how small of a percentage the members of your religion are, out of all the creatures in the world? I think evolution has stacked the odds against you.
