Is Homosexuality an Inappropriate Mode of Sexual Behavior

There has been a long debate on homosexuality and whether it is an appropriate mode of sexual behavior or not? Generally in our society heterosexuality has been regarded as the appropriate mode of sexual behavior, while homosexuality has been regarded as a mental disorder. Individuals with homosexual behaviors are regarded as sick persons in need of treatment.

Based upon various researches, homosexuality is now regarded as an alternate sexual life style. In various countries it is now legal. The majority of homosexuals accepts their homosexuality and fulfills their responsible social roles. They are marrying each other and living together. In some countries, they have separate bars, theaters and other business establishments which may cater primarily to homosexuals.

Homosexual women may also exchange rings and marital vows in formal ceremonies. Lesbians put greater emphasis on the quality of their interpersonal relationship and less on its sexual aspects.

There are several causes of homosexuality. Some believe genetic and hormonal factors as the main cause of homosexuality. They believe that it result from an abnormal androgen estrogen ratio.

Sometimes homosexual experience and their positive reinforcement are also the cause. It is associated with pleasant homosexual experiences. In many cases, negative conditioning of heterosexual behavior may also lead to these relationships. When any boy or girl is ridiculed, rebuked, rebuffed and humiliated in his or her effort to approach members of the opposite sex, he or she may turn towards homosexuality as source of affection and sexual outlet.

Family patterns may generate a wide range of adjustment problem and even severe maladjustment. A dominant seductive mother and a weak or absent father or a mother frustrated by an unhappy marital relationship may establish homosexual relations.

Sometimes when individuals are confined to single-sex institutions like prisons, boarding school, ship on long voyages, for extended period of time, their sexual preferences tend to bend somewhat towards what is available.

In societies where this type of relationship is accepted, it will be open and pubic, but where it is regarded as perversion, it will be forced underground. But now it is recognized that people who prefer same sex are not sick physically or mentally. They are perfectly happy to be the way they are. It is no more struck with old labels such as: not natural or against nature.
