...is not cool. It's a kind of violence perpetrated on the mystery of being. It is unethical.
We find ourselves inside a thing called Nature. Most of biological nature functions as a closed circuit of reproduction. So forms of tribal code centered around totemic, fetishistic reproduction sprang up as part of the human efflorescence. That led to present-day cultural and religious pathology toward, against homosexuals.
I suppose it's understandable, even if wrong.
It's wrong because something else sprang up with human beings. It led to stuff like Shakespeare. We humans are unfathomably different than other beings that operate according to deterministic, functional criteria and constraint. Something opened up in us, and it led to an infinite spectrum of consciousness, of being-possibility.
If some human beings fall in love with people of the same sex, that is an expression of our radical freedom from the closed-loop machinery of biology. To worship reproduction is to kow-tow to matter and mechanical process, is to hereticize living, infinite, spontaneous possibility.
No one has the least clue what reality is and what human beings are in essence. So to pass laws, policies, prohibitions against forms of love is not only a great and foolish presumption, it's also a demeaning of the human miracle and mystery.
