Homosexuality in nature

Is homosexuality found purely in humans or has it been observed in nature despite the fact it goes against base instincts of reproducing? Is it a physical or psychological phenomena?

    "sexual orientation" is not a thing you can make wienerroaches try to mate with pieces of glass for days on end, dolphins stroke dead fishes, and there are people fetishizing the wildest things out there as you surely know since you're using a computer connected to the internet
    point is you're not that special compared to wienerroaches and wanting to get buttfricked is not different from any form of fetishim, it's just natural it will happen to a lot males who have "failed" in a way or another, either cause of molestation, exposure to weird content in delicate stages of psychological development+a certain kind of susceptibility, becoming gay as a last resort for solving your touch starvation issues and inceldom, etc..

      This. Also, aren't humans just attracted scientifically to literally anything with any semblance of curvature?

    "Sexuality" can't even be proven to exist. I don't consider it to exist. Unless just as a general adjective of things pertaining to sex.
    People talking my "my sexuality" like "my philosophy" or "my fashion sense" is just a fad that took hold, certainly nothing scientific. At best maybe pushed by some psychologists or self help gurus, you know, those people known for scientific rigor and objectivity.

    Yes, homosexuality has been observed in nature. Obviously.

      Where? What species?

        >Same-sex sexual behaviour, that is, any attempted sexual activity between members of the same sex has been reported in over 1500 animal species, including all main groups from invertebrates such as insects, spiders, echinoderms, and nematodes, to vertebrates such as fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. Same-sex sexual behaviour is particularly prevalent in nonhuman primates where it has been observed in at least 51 species from lemurs to apes.

        Ultimately, it doesn't really matter if a small portion of a population is gay. Plenty of other males are removed from the gene pool by death, infertility, etc; a species just needs enough to maintain the population. Plus, k-selected species can sometimes have homosexuals care for young and contribute to the group without reproducing.

          They've even tracked individuals in colonies (I think penguins, and definitely some other birds, deer as well) and they are legitimately homosexual: individuals will reject and refuse to mate with the opposite sex, and only with the same sex. It's pretty clear the preference is same-sex.

            i wonder if 20-30% of penguins are gay now as is this case with zoomers

          Fake news. The infamously skeptical Dutch biologist Midas Dekkers uses the example of cows jumping eachother to excite a potential nearby bull as a way to demonstrate that animal ''homosexuality'' is incomparable to human behaviour.

            that actually seems pretty comparable to human behavior

            You have yet to realize that women liking dogs, cats and other women more than most men is unironically true. Especially the dog pill is not meant to be funny but reality.

            It's funny because it's so true.

    didn't they just find the male rat sexual neural networks? and when stimulated a certain way they went full homo?
    if that circuit ain't working right for various reasons, you can see how all kinds of weird behavior might arise.
    considering the network is critical for reproduction then the ones firing "the wrong way" can be considered as broken from a reproductive point of view. specifically if you can stimulate/modify homosexual ones to act "normal".

    Plenty of things go against the instincts of reproducing, and living too.
    All that matters is if the species can continue to survive despite these persistent flaws.

    Exceedingly rare. It seems that the instances of homosexuality among animals that we have found is almost exclusively because of the lack of mates (of the opposite sex). Even so, with lack of mates, almost all animals will die mateless instead of finding a same sex mate.
