Mason; Experiments with rats enclosed in a restricted environment have shown that homosexuality among rats increases in proportion to living space. Make of that what you will...

In reply to an earlier post on 17 May 2014, 20:38:50 BST
That's kind of my opinion too.

Mason; Yeah? Homosexuals are rats =)

What makes you think that there is a rise in homosexuality?

In reply to an earlier post on 17 May 2014, 23:20:02 BST
Personal experience.

Kleist says:
I see. Personal experience tells you that there are more homosexuals proportionally now than in the 80s, 70s, 60s or indeed any age?

Don't you think that your personal experience might be registering the fact that since it is more socially acceptable, legal and no longer considered an illness, more people are confident about admitting to and expressing their sexuality?

Don't you think that under more repressive circumstances people would be more prone to repress or hide their sexuality and the media more prone to ignore or marginalise those who don't?

Personally I feel that the numbers of gay people have remained static although I do recall a study a long time ago involving rats that seemed to suggest that homosexual behaviour increases with pressure on habitat and resources.
I think it seems like there are more gay people because we are free to admit it.

Human beings aren't rats, however much you choose to emulate them.

"I think the reasons are yes its more acceptable,but the type of society we live in makes it harder to have heterosexual relationships.Many women have their own jobs ,cars,and only need a man as a sperm donor,causing men to turn to each other."
Is your hypothesis formed from this personal anecdote?

Drew Jones says:
You do realise your view paints women as unemotional automatons and men as so needy of sex that any sex will do. This anecdotal data is in contrast to my own where people of my age are finding the exact sort of relationships they want and women keep the men about to help raise the children even though they have jobs too.

I've meet American people and their approach to relationships doesn't seem that distant and disconnected from my British experience.

In reply to an earlier post on 19 May 2014, 15:01:26 BST
over there or over here did you meet them?American's that travel are different then American's who won't leave their neighborhood.

Drew Jones says:
Both. I'm not saying that you couldn't find people that fit your description, I'm disputing your suggestion that it is a significant number of people that justify broad statements about what is happening in society at a larger scale.

In reply to an earlier post on 19 May 2014, 15:17:23 BST
not the whole society but a big percent with the younger set,as more women are going to college then men.

That much is true.

Were it otherwise I might be able to get some decent sushi around here! lol

Drew Jones says:
I'd be sceptical that it is even a significant number of a sub-group as wide as 'young women'. More women going on to higher education doesn't mean they are shunning relationships with men and although they may delay parenting I don't see many using men just as sperm donors.

Spin says:
The homocentric conception of "population" is the most erroneous of human intellectual inventions. The idealists consider "number" to be a factor in the phenomenon of 'population'. If number is of such great import they should be demanding the reduction of the number of insects on this planet.

Um... I have a feeling that a good strong pair of incontinence pants might help keep such things from leaking out in the future.

Naturally, you should wrap them around your hands.
