Keith this one goes against my intuition.  In times of increasing scarcity
because of overpopulation, it seems the homosexuals would be our friends,
with an expected backlash towards heavy breeders.  I can think of only one
good historical example where any culture really embraces and promotes
homosexuality: modern Hollywood Inc.  But that culture is more oriented to
plenty, or rather gross excess (the best kind).  Puzzling.  Doesn't this
seem opposite what we would expect?
