Why Homosexuality Disturbs Me

 

 

Everywhere we look these days there is evidence to suggest that Homosexuality is becoming more acceptable in society. The other day I even passed two guys holding hands and strolling carelessly down the street. Online they seem to have taken over Social Media; hugging, kissing, and flaunting their affection without restraint. I became so offended by it that I had to sit back and ponder why Homosexuality disturbs me.

The #1 reason Homosexuality disturbs me is because I get disgusted at the thought and sight of two same sex individuals exchanging affection for each other. Is it conditioning or a natural reaction? It maybe a little bit of both. However, being an open-minded person allows me to get to my own conclusions about homosexuality without the opinions of others. Unfortunately, reality often takes a back seat to the ideologies of the society we live in.

As an open minded individual I have tried to gain a good understanding of Homosexuality. So far my understanding allows me to mentally accept that a person can be Homosexual based on hormone values set before birth. Conversely, most people believe that Homosexuality is the choice of an immoral mind. That gives them an excuse to use self righteousness and Religion to discriminate against Gay people. They never allow themselves to be guided by logic. Some forms of ideology enslave the Mind while some others help us grow as Humans. I want to be one who grows by using right thinking.

I am a Heterosexual man who has very strong attractions to the opposite sex. I know it is Nature and my Hormones that determine that. In fact, I know that my opposite sex attraction is for the purpose of perpetuating Life. Humanity has become so self centered in thinking that Life is all about Humanity that they refuse to acknowledge how Life really works. They abuse life by willfully disregarding things that seem to have no value or affect on their quest for happiness and contentment.

The refusal to understand Life has resulted in an ideology based mindset. Some scholars have accepted a belief that without ideology Humanity would be in chaos and without direction. The truth is, morality existed long before ideology. Ideology is the grouping of a set of values for the purpose of maintaining a system of thought. For instance; if you believe that Homosexuality is wrong, you will reinforce that belief by thinking of all the ways in which it is immoral. You will also gain confidence in your belief by associating with others who believe as you do.

If, on the other hand your mind functions outside of ideology you will try to find out why Homosexuality really upsets you. Earlier I mentioned Hormones and it is precisely the reason why I feel as I do. All our Emotions are controlled by our Hormones or lack thereof. Therefore, the conflict between ideology and reality can be averted by our ability to control our emotions. It is rationality over emotions or Left Brain over Right.  I still believe that Homosexuality is wrong but not for the same reasons as most people. It is not wrong in the sense of “choice” but wrong in the sense that it is abnormal. Most people who abhor Homosexuality believe that it is a choice and that only immoral people choose to be Homosexual.

I am a believer in Life/ANKH in all its incarnations. I believe that the purpose of life is to flourish. It does so by using two distinct mechanisms of reproduction, sexual and asexual. Sexual reproduction involves the joining of reproductive tissue from two different sexes, male and female. Asexual reproduction involves one single living organism splitting in two to create two separate organisms, each one identical to the original. In both mechanisms the process is carried on perpetually. Homosexuality does not fit any of the two therefore to me it is abnormal. Two Homosexuals cannot reproduce therefore it is not a creation of Life but a result of Human Biology. Life was not made for Humans, Humans are mearely the result of the processes of Life.
