If there was no such thing as sex, would there be such a thing as gay men?

    It's not a dumb question. Does sexual preference define being gay, or is it other behaviours?
    I kinda think that it goes beyond sex in some people.

    With or without physical sex, the attraction toward other men, still makes you gay

    yes people would still be able to be gay, because it goes past sexual preference by far!
    i become emotionally attached and dependent upon guys. i have no interest in girls or the way they behave, the things they are interested in..
    i have never even had sex, and i know 100% im not into girls because of my emotional feelings for guys..

    the guys saying that there wouldnt be any humans are just being smart asses

    No, but they would find another way to seperate people and deny the minority rights.

    As for reproduction, there are several asexual species that reproduce. If there were no sex and everyone were male, evolution would create a way to reproduce.

    Yeah but it wouldn't be as severe as the segregation of gays. Gay are, have always been, and always will be the most hated minority group in the history of mankind.

    You may have a point, and it could be a tie.
    And, this country isn't the only one that predominately hates blacks.
    From what I understand, most countries of lighter skinned people tend to have a strong prejudice against darker skin people.

    It's a shame that you would have to say that even though it is true.

    Ugh! Sometimes i can't stand humans!

    I think you'd have to qualify how sex as we know it would be replaced by some other reproductive possibility.

    If we were all clonal, there might not even be such a thing as "attraction" as we know it. Likely, there wouldn't even be "relationships".

    If we reproduced by pollination, I think the same thing applies.

    Interesting sci-fi-type question, but perhaps a bit too broad and high-brow for jocks icon_razz.gif

    I assume you have sexual desires for guys, though you are celibate for now. But if you did not have those sexual needs, then the preference for the company of males (without sex) is simply freindship.
    Is that mostly the way the straight male world is? Most straight jocks prefer the company of guys instead of gals for having fun (not sex), - though they would not admit it. And in the straight world it is known as freinds,wingmen, pals,etc. And maybe the gay world it is a big fraternity, with fringe benefits (sex).

    First: Why do we as minorities fight over who has it worst? Shouldnt we be allies in making sure everyone has equality?

    Second: Im sorry, but some gay men cant hide it.

    sex is sex; a temporary yet severe intensification of love, carnal love;
    relationship is not based on sex.

    Without sexual reproduction, there would be no genders, hence there would be no gender preference. As such, there would be no gay men, because there would be no men at all, nor any women.

    That doesn't make any sense. Being able to hide does not remove gays from being hated or feared nor does it protect them from the negative affects of anti-gay sentiment/treatment.

    There is a black looking president of the United States currently!.. There are black sports stars. There are black movie stars. Famous black musicians. Black people in all kinds of various seats of power and prestige.

    Black people do experience prejudice and discrimination and they may not be able to hide it (for the most part), but that doesn't mean it's worse than the experiences gay people suffer. I have never read of a black family rejecting their son for being black or some black kid so upset that he might be black that he kills himself.

    Gays and blacks share a lot of the same treatment and experiences, some are of course different as well. It's self-serving to think it's not as bad because some guys can hide it.

    In the end the very fact that gays must feel they have to hide or should hide just shows how BAD it actually must be to be gay!
