Gays and Evolution: Exclusive focus on opposite sex is detrimental

Posted by bert5 on 26 November 2014

You all know the straight guy, a player, who has next to no male friends. He’s only interested in female companionship. It gets a bit lonely for some bits. It just seems like it might be detrimental to be too far extreme in the lack of any same-sex interests for survival advantage. It helps to have some same-sex (male) allies to be on your side to fight others in a dangerous world. This leads to the idea that homosexuality is a variation, albeit a fairly extreme one where it essentially replaces opposite sex interests. I think this is a ‘nice’ theory, but not terribly convincing as a full explanation.
