Science says that a human being’s attraction towards other human beings, whether male or female, is purely based on natural human instincts.
These instincts are not engineered or created by oneself. They are instilled through a person’s natural sexuality. However, this understanding of one’s irrevocable sexuality, whether straight or homosexual, was not well explained or openly discussed among our older generations.
This lack of transparency in sex education has led to the unhealthy suppression of several young adults who are discovering more about their sexuality on a daily basis.
Consequently, in modern times, the notion of discussing sexuality and opening up about homosexuality between children and their parents is considered taboo.
As a result, if people from the LGBTQ community are not allowed to be themselves and continue to be suppressed from opening up about their sexuality, then it can lead to consequences of emotional, mental, and relationship trauma. Hence, it is essential for adults to develop a panoramic and correct comprehension of sexuality in order to prevent such unwanted trauma among families and accept the norm of the LGBTQ community.
Suppressed people can suffer from emotional issues such as a lack of self-confidence and low self-esteem. They can also suffer from mental health issues such as depression and severe anxiety. Consequently, they could also be forced to deal with heartbreaking losses in relationships with their parents, peers, and other relatives. The separation is caused by the misunderstanding of sexuality, where a majority of people wrongly believe that heterosexuality is the only and correct decision. This majority of people disown their loved ones because they cannot cope with the self-assumed or self-created shame associated with same-sex attraction. The shame triggers people’s fear of what other people will think of their children who may be gay, lesbian or bisexual, etc. People become unnecessarily worried about what society will think of them. As a result, the acceptance of homosexuality or Bisexuality among families becomes unacceptable.
Being part of the LGBTQ community is a natural instinct in human beings. According to the Washington Post via Forbes, a study of genes involving more than 470,000 people conducted by scientists discovered at least five genes clearly associated with homosexuality.
The natural factors used to discover the biological gene variants found in the study included a person’s sense of smell, patterns of male baldness, a person’s sex hormones, and a person’s environmental exposure. Researchers state that these biological gene variants found in the study can influence one’s sexual behavior or attraction, proving homosexuality as one of the standard components of human sexual behavior. Consequently, according to the Chief Programmes Officer of GlAAD – an LGBTQ advocative organization, Zeke Stokes, the study conducted provides further evidence that being part of the LGBTQ community is a natural part of human life and only strenghtens the conclusions drawn by scientists about homosexuality considered as a natural behavior in the past.
Since science proves that homosexuality is a natural habit of life and cannot be changed in individuals, it is essential for people in different communities to evolve in their understanding of homosexualilty. People should not be ignorant towards natural human habits and accept human beings with love. People should realize that judging and disowning people based on homosexuality due to personal or religious beliefs is wrong. Instead, they should understand that the true belief of accepting a human being (no matter being homosexual) should be based on whether the person is lovable and a good human to society. People who are homosexual or bisexual also have feelings and are just like heterosexual people with the hope of being loved by other people. They have normal aspirations, normal dreams and should be treated as normal in society.
Now in the 21st century, it’s time for society to grow out of sexual immaturity and become woke towards the feelings of loved ones from the LGBTQ community. In better words, it’s high time society discards self-pride and truly accepts sexual normality – accepting people for who they are in the world by simply loving one another.
