Homosexuality


Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Nature:

Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Homosexuality may lead to exploitation by blackmail, robbery, or sexual violence. In some countries, homosexuality is a criminal offence.

Claim:

Active homosexual behaviour is deviant. Many boys and girls pass through a period of homosexuality. It is the task of the teacher to help them through that state. Anything else amounts to promoting arrested development. Anyone who teaches others to believe otherwise is an evil influence in society.

Counter Claim:

In the Kinsey report of 1948 on sexual behaviour in the USA, 37% of males questioned admitted to physical contact (to the point of orgasm) with another male at least once between adolescence and old age. It was estimated that some 10% of American males had indulged in more or less exclusively homosexual activity for at least three years. Such figures are indicative that homosexuality constitutes normal rather than deviant behaviour. Perception of this normality is distorted by the widespread victimization of homosexuals.
