Video: Elections and Gay Marriage

 

Donald Trump opposes gay marriage and believes it should be repealed the laws that allow it.

1

Hillary Clinton supports gay marriage on the grounds that it is a sexual preference of a minority group and they should be protected their right to not be discriminated.

Which of the two views is correct?

To know we must ask the question:

 

Does it cause harm to the society the legalization of the gay marriage and, therefore, the repeal is necessary or does not cause harm to the society the legalization of gay marriage and, therefore, the repeal is unnecessary?

 

The answer to this question is critical to determine whether the legalization of gay marriage in the United States must stand as a civil right or if instead should be repealed.

 

To answer the above question is required to answer two questions in turn:

 

1. Is sexual behavior of human beings, and therefore of peoples, a behavior determined solely by innate biological factors not learned? That is, is the sexual behavior of humans determined solely by biological factors as in the case of animals?

2. Or is the sexual behavior of human beings and therefore of peoples a behavior determined not only by biological factors but mainly by learned cultural factors, beside biological factors?

If the sexual behavior of humans was determined solely by innate biological factors not learned, then we should expect that the legalization of gay marriage did not bring significant harmful factors to the welfare of society. In this case Hillary Clinton is right to defend the non repeal of laws that legalize gay marriage in the United States.

If, however, the sexual behavior of human beings was determined primarily by culture, apart from biological factors, then the legalization of gay marriage and acceptance of homosexual behavior as correct would bring great changes in culture and American society. Moreover, these changes would be highly damaging to American society. In this case Donald Trump is right in proposing the repeal of gay marriage.

For example, if the sexual behavior of human beings and therefore of society, was determined primarily by culture, apart from biological factors, then we should expect to occur the following major changes:

 

  1.  The gradual transition over time of the American society from an heterosexual society to an homosexual society. That transformation would not be seen immediately, but in the long term throughout evolutionary period of 4 to 5 generations or more. In other word, we expect this transition occurs over a period of 100 to 200 years, as they were changing the system of values in culture.

     

 

  1.  The decline in the population of the United States to the extent that it was increasing the percentage of the US population practicing gay marriage.

With only 10% of the population of the United States to practice gay marriage, it would be enough that the American population will begin to shrink down to extinction. If instead of 10%, gay marriages were a 30% reduction in the US population would drastically extinguished in a short time.

 

  1.  The evolution and growth of gay marriage will eventually lead the evolution of society of the United States from monogamy to polygamy and bigamy. This would occur as a result of that to prevent the extinction of the population of the United States would require the legalization of gay marriage of multiple persons of both sexes, ending the monogamous marriage. That is, this would be one way to prevent that the US population be reduced to the extinction.

         

  1.  The evolution and growth of gay marriage also entail the development of the society of the United States to legalization of children factories where gay marriages could go to commission a child in a rented wombs, either with own homosexual couples sperm or with third persons sperm who were paid to beget children to homosexual couples. This would be so as a result of such a measure would be another way to prevent the US population be reduced to extinction.

   

  1.  The evolution and growth of gay marriage would also involve the proliferation of venereal and sexually transmitted diseases due to the holding of coitus, not with a single pair, as in the case of monogamous marriage, but with multiple partners, in the case of polygamous marriage it would be necessary legalized to prevent the extinction of the population of the United States. In addition, as we know, anal sex would be a source more conducive to the spread of venereal diseases for obvious reasons.

   

  1. The worldwide proliferation of gay marriage by countries that are dedicated to imitate the United States, as in much of Latin America and Europe, give margin to incision of the world's countries in two large camps: gay countries led by the United States and heterosexuals countries who choose not imitate the United States and that would be led by Russia or China perhaps. This would bring new geopolitical problems that could lead to a third world war between homosexual and heterosexual countries.

The above are only 6 serious problems that could lead in the long run the legalization of gay marriage in the event that the sexual behavior of individuals and, therefore, of peoples, were determined, not only by biological factors but by factors culturally learned.

 

The Financing of the Scientific Research On the Nature of Homosexual Behavior

 

These possible serious consequences that could generate the legalization of gay marriage, merit that funds were allocated to scientifically investigate whether the sexual behavior of human beings and therefore of the people is biological and innate or if it is essentially culturally learned. It is therefore important that politicians in the United States express themselves on this issue.

 

Groups that advocate gay marriage should have the same interest as Americans than groups opposed to gay marriage that it be scientifically investigate whether the sexual behavior of human beings and peoples is innate or biological or if instead it is culturally learned. No group can be against that the truth be determined on this issue and so thoroughly know the fate we want to give to the United States.

 

Both Donald Trump, as Hillary Clinton should commit to that, in the case of winning elections, he or she legislate to allocated the funds to carry out the scientific studies designed to determine the truth about this issue.

       

Neither Donald nor Hillary would be taking positions for or against both groups. They would only be supporting the search for determine the scientific truth, which is of the interest of both groups.

 

Theory of Homosexuality by Cultural Learning

 

The theory of homosexuality by cultural learning that will expose in this paper show the reasons why sexual behavior of human beings, and therefore of society is culturally learned.

 

There is empirical evidence that sexual behavior in humans is not only biological in nature, but primarily determined by culture. There is also historical and anthropological evidence, that sexual behavior in humans is determined by the values of culture.

 

Empirical evidence

 

If sexual behavior in humans were determined by biological factors alone, it would be like the sexual behavior of dogs or horses. The dog has sex with his mother or his sisters or their children or with dogs of various breeds because their sexual behavior is determined by biological factors alone. Sexual behavior of dogs do not discriminate on the basis of race as humans with racist values do. The dog has no culture and therefore have no values governing sexual behavior with their close relatives or individuals of other races or species. The same applies for the horse, etc .. However, human beings are the only animals that have culture and therefore values that regulate their behavior and especially sexual behavior.

 

Values are not static elements of the culture but dynamic. That is, when a culture value is changed, cognitive dissonance is generated with other values that are related to that particular modified value. On this point see the theory of cognitive dissonance (1957) Leon Festinger. Therefore, if the values of culture are changed with respect to the correct or acceptable sexual behavior, they will be generating the set of changes related to the value than is modified. These changes in the set of values related to the original values that is modified occur in the long term and in turn produce changes in sexual behavior of the population in the long term.

 

Historical evidence

 

If we examine the history for observing the sexual behavior of human beings and therefore of the people, we find that there have been societies where homosexual behavior was widespread, as is in the case of ancient societies of Greece and Rome.  We also found evidence that the sexual behavior of people varies over time as values of culture regarding the correct or acceptable sexual behavior change.  We also found evidence that the sexual behavior of people varies over time, not only from one society to another, but within the same society.  That is, we find evidence in the history that the sexual conduct within a same people evolves as they change and evolve the values of the culture about correct or acceptable sexual behavior.

For example, at the beginning of the Roman republic or democracy (509 BC), homosexual behavior among free men was prohibited and it was punished the person that practiced it, even with death.  The Roman Republic runs from 509 BC to 27 AC.  In the middle of the republic, homosexual behavior was permitted when the penetrated was a slave or a non-Roman person and the person who penetrate was a Roman. Homosexual behavior between free men was considered a degeneration of behavior that came from the Greeks whom the Romans criticized.  Apparently the beginning of the acceptance of homosexual conduct was justified by presenting it as a form of macho expression of power, domination or superiority over foreigners and slaves subjected.  Over time homosexual behavior between free Romans was generalizing. By the end of the Roman republic or democracy (27 AC) and the beginning of the empire, homosexual behavior was widespread and gay marriage had been established.

 

For the beginning of the Roman Empire in the first century AC, when the practice of homosexual behavior was already widespread, the English historian Edward Gibbon Emily (1737-1794), specializing in the history of Rome, states that from the first 12 emperors that have Rome, 11 were homosexual. The heterosexual Emperor of name Claudius was criticized for not practicing homosexuality.

 

Shortly before the arrival of Christianity to power with the emperor Constatino (274 AC) homosexual behavior in Rome was lost. For the year 390 AC Emperor Theodosius I banned homosexual relationships. With the passage of time heterosexual behavior becomes the norm culturally accepted again in Roman society.

 

The historical events of ancient Rome and Greece evidence that widespread homosexual behavior in societies is culturally learned.

 

 

Projections of the American Society Based on the historical experience of the Roman Society

 

If we were to make projections of American society based on historical experience of Roman society, we would say that, like as happened in Rome at the beginning of the republic or Roman democracy in 509 BC, in the United States at the beginning of republic or American democracy in 1776 homosexual practice was prohibited and punished.  As as happened in Rome in the middle of the republic or Roman democracy in the United States in the mid of the republic or American democracy, That is, 214 years after the declaration of independence, in 1990, homosexual practice begins be accepted and pursues and punishes people who express their cultural values against homosexual behavior. They are called homophobic in the form of criticism and ridicule and punished by dismissing them from their jobs when they express their values against homosexuality. On June 26, 2015, that is, 239 years after the establishment of democracy in the United States, homosexual behavior was accepted and gay marriage in the United States was legalized. Former President Bill Clinton and President Barak Obama, both from from the Democratic Party, played a prominent role in the legalization of gay marriage in the United States.

 

Based on the Roman experience we can expect that, like as happened in Rome at the end of the republic or Roman democracy that lasted about 500 years, and the beginning of the empire, in the United States in 200 years, that is in the year 2215, the practice of homosexual behavior will be widespread and that of 12 elected presidents by the people, 11 were gay and one be heterosexual. We can also expect that the heterosexual president, as in the case of Rome, be criticized for not practicing homosexuality. That is, we can expect that by the year 2215 in the United States, for every 48 years of government they have homosexual presidents for 44 years and only for four years a heterosexual president.

 

Apart from Rome and Greece in ancient times there were other towns where homosexual behavior was widespread, such as Phoenicia, Carthage, Sodom and Gomorrah, among others. Therefore, we can conclude that the sexual behavior of human beings and therefore of society, is determined primarily by factors of culture, apart from biological factors.
