The world population is growing at an exponential rate and the way things are going it will most likely and realistically only be able to support a population of around ten billion. I think that Homosexuality is perhaps natures way of dealing with problems like this. Maybe through evolution and time when a population grows too large theres an increase. Humanity has become more civilized in the western world Europe and America but, on the other hand where a stymie in population growth is most needed is in third world countries were you can still be put to death for being gay. I guess they are also lowering the population in these LEDC's and less developed countries if they are being executed but still thats really ****** up to think about.

TLDR gays could be helping with the problem of exponential population growth albeit only in MEDC's and areas with higher development.

Except nature doesn't "decide" what to do, it's always random. Evolution wasn't like ""hey maybe we should get like, claws or something"
BAM we get claws
Evolution was a mutation that could or could not be better for the species , and the ones that are better survive and pass on the "better" gene

Yes, that's how it works, congratulations. And now you could've thought it through because maybe that's how it is - a "mutation", occuring in brain, dna, genetics or wherever, a nature's way of keeping population in reasonable numbers - too many ones of the species and they'll run out of food, space etc. Homosexuality isn't just a human thing.

You're thinking of nature as a thinking person or being. Nature doesn't think. It just happens.

Nature is not a superhero, it doesn't protect humans or anything. It's not nature's way of saving our puny life. Also try to keep this as non-sarcastic as possible because it just looks like you're butt mad.

I get what you're saying, but then you're also kinda justifying the cruel punishments for gays in backwards countries, which aint cool.

More acceptance of gays means less "Try and make this sham work" marriages and relationships which means less children. That's the main factor. The idea that nature is making people gay so that bigots can execute me is baffling at best.

Not to be rude but i think you kind of missed my point. I was suggesting that nature was making people gay to stop the growth of an already large population. This is the case in the developed world. In no way was i suggesting or justifying the brutal killing of gays, i really dont know how you got that... notice how i mentioned how ****** up that is to think about. I was only saying how the population was still being stymied in a similar way but i was not justifying it in the slightest. obviously the brutal killing due to ignorance is horrendous.I wasnt justifying what is happening just pointing out a factor which is coming about due to it.

Maybe I am understanding, the general message I got was "Nature is creating gays to slow down exponential growth, because people get killed for being gay and that brings the population down". That's certainly what it sounded like to me.

Or did you mean two separate points? "Nature creates gay people to slow down growth, and hopefully people will see that soon, despite the fact that some countries still persecute gays"

The exponential growth will be slowed down by the fact gay people tend to breed less that straight people. I mean there are still surrogates and such but it is still at a much lower rate. I was stating how in less developed countries people have not noticed this. the population is being lowered by ignorant bigots murdering people and if this wasnt the case more people would come out of the closet in these places thus contributing more so to problems with world population. Again i wasn't stating that killing gays was a solution to population problems, thats deeply ****** up.

actually, population growth is slowing down in all first world countries as it is. The US is one of the few that actually still has positive population growth, and that's just barely. Most of Europe and Japan will require immigrants to keep a viable working population, and countries that are improving like India are seeing their growth drop like a rock as they industrialize. Meanwhile the gay population is actually a constant percentage of the total, they aren't actually growing or shrinking, merely telling people they exist. I think it's about 3% of the total population is gay at any given time.

TL, DR There was always the same percentage of gay people as there is now, and they aren't going anywhere or growing.
