It is difficult to dispute that, cause we have no statistics about that for the past.
Like EP already said, there were times in history where homosexuality was openly accepted. Probably even more then nowadays. In all cultures. It is already mentioned in the Bible and the Quran and even before that. It is mentioned as a deadly sin, but it was there. The Bible and the Quran say that Homosexuals need to be stoned to death, you think twice about openly admitting it when you face that punishment.
Also, i have studied Roman History a lot and they engaged in all kinds of homosexual stuff which was at times pretty sick even by our standards. But it was accepted.
I do not believe that the sexual orientation is a matter of choice. From all that we know so far it is genetically and/or psychologically determined. I mean of course, technically it is possible for everyone to engage in homosexual acts, but to be a full fledged homosexual that can only do it that way, is not a matter of choice.
Or lets put it the other way around. I couldnt choose to be homosexual even if i wanted, no matter what i tried. I just dont like men that way and no willpower could change that. It doesnt work like that.
They actually did experiments trying to change peoples sexual orientation, particularly homosexuals and also the other way around. None of it worked.
What i do agree on though is that these "in your face" homosexuals annoy me. That should be a private thing and i cant stand people who turn their sexuality into a public issue and some homosexuals seem to do that. They seem to have a profile neurosis.
