    Any homosexual/bisexual primals here?

    Are there any homosexual primals/paleos here? I'm a female bisexual, married to a man. Just wondering if there are any of us on here?

    The reason I ask is because, well, I just asked a question about the Paleo community's acceptance of gays on PaleoHacks, and my question was deleted.
    The question was about how to convince my vegan gay friends, who are interested in Paleo, that the community was accepting of gays. They've read a lot of paleo/primal forum thread about health and evolution, as it pertains to breeding/natural selection. As you can imagine, this didn't go over too well. I am trying to show them that this way of eating/way of life does not subscribe heavily to heterosexuality, but am struggling to come up with examples or a strong backing for homosexuals/bisexuals.
    Maybe someone can help me out?

    Not gay or bi, but the paleo community as a whole seems pretty accepting of people no matter what. As long as you are not a total asshat (a trait which knows no one sexuality) then people are treated pretty much the same in my observation. Gay Panda is accepted because he is cool as hell, not because he is gay, straight, bi or just really fuzzy with a cute expression while he eats bamboo. I'm honestly of the opinion that sexuality doesn't matter. Sure, we need to breed to continue as a species but plenty of heterosexual people here are not planning to breed (myself included) so they are the same as homosexuals in that regard. Also, unless someone makes their sexuality an issue how would anyone even know?

    Sooooo...long story short, there are closed-minded folk everywhere but here at least there seems to be less of them Hell, it is far less acceptable here to be vegan than gay

    I'm not gay - but I am a big supporter of gay rights.

    When I think about homosexuality and evolution I see it in a bit of a different way. People always argue that homosexuality should quickly be selected against because of reduced offspring numbers. However, since it has NOT been selected out of any populations studied so far, I would argue that there must be an important role for homosexuality in tribal/pack groups.

    However, I feel even if there is no evolutionary or biological explanation for homosexuality it just doesn't matter. I can't imagine anything that worries me less than how any two consenting adults pursue love.

    Straight parents can have gay kids, and gay parents can have straight kids. Innate =/= genetic. It's an aspect of the individual's mind, just like any other personality trait.
