I am pondering an idea, a hypothesis. I have not studied it, and have not ever heard it suggested. This is just a concept that came to mind, and I thought I would put it here for you and look for your input.
Could our present place in the evolutionary process be the reason for a rise in homosexuality? Now first of all, maybe we are not experiencing a rise in homosexual behavior, but we just hear about it more. Maybe we are having a rise in homosexuals or maybe we will in the future.
Many years ago species fought to survive. Reproduction was high on the priority list. It was necessary for the survival of the species. Reproduction is no longer as high on the priority list for long term survival. Humans are not in danger of becoming extinct. It seem that a rise in homosexuality would not hurt Homo Sapien’s chance to survive at this point.
I also think that there may not be a need for out physical bodies to evolve any longer. We can built or create anything we need to accomplish any task we come across. Our bodies need nothing more. So what is the next step in evolution? Brain capacity! Could it be that our stage in evolution is mostly or strictly cerebral at this point?
It seems reasonable that our best way to move forward is to think more and be more creative. We can understand our universe and we can create things never before conceived.
If, in fact, our creativity and mental processes are expanding could it be that we have reached a place where homosexuality is becoming more natural? Maybe, our natural sense of beauty has become more important, in a growing segment of people, than our natural instinct to reproduce.
It seems reasonable that if we are more creative or evolving our creativity we could see beauty in both sexes and we could find new ways to pleasure and be pleasured. Sexual variety would be stimulating. We could more naturally explore stimulation when reproduction is not the driving force behind sexual encounters.
It seems that women naturally see beauty easier than men. In many cases, they can instinctively find other women attractive. Everyone likes comfort. Both men and women enjoy the softness and gentleness of a maternal figure. Could it be that those tendencies provide the base for creativity and sexuality to increase same-sex desires in women?
Could it be that men no longer need to feel as threatened by other men? Could the instinct to reproduce with females be subsiding a bit because our species is safe from extinction and we can dominate all other species? Men can explore their desires for other men without as much fear of a struggle for dominance?
Could it also be that an increase in homosexuality is better for us? Could we instinctively realize that a higher percentage of homosexuals could slow our population rate as we come to understand that our natural resources are finite? We need to fine ways to be more efficient with the earth, develop the ability to tap resources outside of our atmosphere, and even look to start expanding our habitat beyond our planet. Could it be homosexuality could be a evolutionary balance to human longevity and depletion of our habitat?
Could we be at a place where homosexuality is not just increasing, but is a part of our evolution? Could it be that homosexuality is useful or even necessary?
I would like your feedback!!!! It will be interesting to see where this goes!
