I posted in this question in the middle of another thread, but this has me wondering if (as someone theorized) that possibly homosexuality is one of nature's population controls?
Does anyone know in the over 450 different vertebrate species that have been documented in having homosexual patterns/relations, are any facing extinction in the near future?
How many are overpopulated?
Besides the national geographic article that has been posted more times than any other, anyone have any other resources books that might help me answer this question? It was an enlightening theory, in my mind and would like to research it potential more.

Anon, why does this question bother you so much? Animals have instincts that encourage reproduction. They don't have to have the IQ of a human (although, some of the IQ's on CM are debatable in their own right), but they are also created to reproduce. If they fail to reproduce and instead start exhibiting homosexual behaviors, then they have a higher likelihood to become endangered and eventually extinct. It's a valid question. And I don't think anyone is trying to make a case for it to be OK.
