Psychology and Homosexuality
Homosexuality is a violation of human relationship and orientation, and therefore it should be made illegal since it is itself against God’s plan. The world has been divided over the issue of homosexuality. This has involved religions, philosophers and even politicians. Different people have come up with different arguments, which are either in the support or against homosexuality. At the same time such identity groups have been keen to fight for their so called rights so that the world can notice them, and by so doing giving them the freedom to their sexual practices. This has hence caused very big disagreements over the issue as more and more people continue to get married as gay couples (James & Stuart, 2009). In addition, a number of Christian wings have been seen permitting gay priests as the people’s shepherds and hence this has seen a lot of misunderstandings as well as church disintegrations or separations.
Homosexuality and Psychology: The Controversy
Homosexuality poses a psychological aspect to the mind of mind whenever it is to be spoken about. This is so because homosexuality has its origin as an advent of some complex form of psychology. Many sexuality and psychological experts have been arguing that homosexuality itself is a form of a psychological disorder, while others have been terming it to be some kind of perversion happening in the mind of man (James & Stuart, 2009). Because of that notion, the world has been slowly and slowly coming into terms with this mentality, and funny enough, the result has been the classical view of such sexual patterns (Gilbert & Jacob, 2006). Since then, many experts to come up with ways through which issues of sexuality in our modern society can be dealt with have used the homosexuality psychology. The history of psychology and homosexuality is something that has been dominating most of today’s discussions. Such historical findings on homosexuality have also suggested that this is not caused by some mental disorder or illnesses as many people have initially supposed, but a form of psychological effects in the person’s mind.
Today, the world has been torn apart in these issues of homosexuality. The question has been whether we should support such relationships or be against them. Homosexuality is something, which should not be accepted or allowed in the society if the human future and existence on earth was to be guaranteed. This is so because the acceptance of such identity groups, among us, posses a greater danger to the human species when looked from a philosophical point of few. However, different people from different parts of the world have been holding different views about the subject (Gilbert & Jacob, 2006). Some societies have declared such marriages legal, and hence this has caused a number of disagreements and misunderstandings all over the globe. Many societies have hence declared that this vague and distorted definition pertaining gender equality, identity, and sexual perspective is something that has been invented to undermine the existence of man and the universal future laws (James & Stuart, 2009).
The conclusion here is that, although we have seen that homosexuality is entirely a psychological state and conditioning of the mind, it is a form of relationship, which need to be criminalized in all governments. It is violation of cultural dynamics, which would change people’ live. The other thing with such a practise is that it threatens the future life of man, and thereby posing a possibility of human extinction. Although this is a personal opinion, it is quite clear that some people out there will be ready to allow this social interrelationship because of some reasons they can argue better. However, so long as it is not in accordance with God’s plan, it means that it is something that should not happen in the world. It will also be noted that, as history suggests, more and more homosexuality identities will continue to emerge day after day.
