As well as simple biology.
I’m going to venture a radical thought. One of the accepted stages of development as a child is same-sex friendships and play. Around adolescence children/teens usually incorporate women into their interests and activities.
There are two possible versions of my thoughts:
That sticking to the familiar same sex relationships is easier, i.e. the Peter Pan syndrome; and/or
That refusing to involve oneself with women is some form of adolescent rebellion/angst that sticks around.
I believe that the sudden acceptance of homosexuality has encourages both of these. Some people may be genetically predisposed to being gay. But those numbers haven’t exploded suddenly.
[/quote]I think obesity and ugly women are more the cause. I use the UK as a primary example. They have the most unattractive women in the Western World and also have a full 1/3 of UK male college students having made out with other men. When you have disproportionate numbers of awful looking fat women, a lot of guys go into “any hole’s a goal” mode. I mean really, what major difference is there between a 250lb “woman” and 250lb “man”. They’re both shaped like a blob of silly putty. If you’ll have sex with one, why not the other? Neither one of them looks like any woman you’d see in nature before the 20th century.
