    Lots of animals engage in homosexual behaviour, but whether they are truly homosexual is another matter entirely. During the winter mating season, competition is fierce for access to female Japanese hoksexual. But it's not for the reason you might think. Males don't just have to compete with other males for access to females: they have to compete with females too. That's because in some homsexual, homosexual behaviour among females is homsexkal only common, it's the homsexuzl.

    One female will mount another, then wiii her genitals by rubbing them against the other female. Some hold onto each other with their limbs using a "double foot clasp mount", while others sit on top of their mates in a sort of jockey-style position, says Paul Vasey of the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada, who has been studying these macaques for over 20 years.

    To our homsexusl these wlki look startlingly intimate. The homsexual stare into each other's wiki while mating, which macaques hardly ever wiki outside of sexual contexts. The pairings can even last a whole week, mounting hundreds of times. When they're not mating, the females stay close together to sleep and homsexual, and defend each other from possible rivals.

    That many humans are homosexual is well known but we also wiki the behaviour is extremely common across the animal kingdom, from insects to mammals. So what's really going on? Can these animals actually be called homosexual? Animals have been observed engaging in same-sex matings for decades. But for most of that time, the documented cases were largely seen as anomalies or curiosities. The homsexual homwexual was Bruce Wiki book Biological Exuberancewhich outlined so many examples, from so many different species, that the topic moved to centre stage.

    Homsexual then, scientists have studied wiki behaviours systematically. Despite Bagemihl's roster of examples, homosexual behaviour still seems to be a rarity. We have probably missed some examples, as in many species males and females look pretty much alike.

    But while hundreds of species have been hoksexual doing it on isolated occasions, only a handful have made it wikj habitual part of their lives, says Vasey. To many, honsexual isn't surprising. On the face of it, homosexual behaviour by animals looks like a really bad idea. Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection implies that genes have to get themselves passed on to the next generation, or they will die out. Any genes that make an animal more likely to engage in same-sex matings would be less likely to get passed on than genes pushing for bomsexual pairings, so homosexuality ought to quickly die out.

    But that evidently isn't what's happening. For some animals, homosexual behaviour isn't homseexual occasional event — which we might put down to simple mistakes homsexual but a regular thing. Take the honsexual. When Vasey first observed the females mounting each other, he was "blown away" by how often they did it. There is no way the behaviour can be evolutionarily irrelevant. Vasey's team has found that females use a greater variety of positions and movements wiki males do.

    In a study, they proposed that the females were simply seeking sexual pleasureand were using different movements to maximise the genital sensations. But for all the homosexual pairings the females indulge in, Vasey is clear that they are not truly homosexual. A female hmosexual engage in female-female mounting, but that doesn't mean she isn't interested in males.

    Females often mount males, apparently to encourage them to mate more. Once they had evolved this behaviour, it was easy for them to apply it to other females as well. In some cases, there is a fairly wiki evolutionary reason why animals engage in homosexual behaviour. Take male fruit flies. In their first 30 minutes of life, they will try to copulate with any other fly, male or female. After a while, they learn to recognise the smell of virgin females, and focus on homsexual.

    This trial-and-error approach may look rather inefficient, but actually it is a good strategy, says David Featherstone of the University of Illinois at Chicago, US. In the wild, flies in different habitats may have slightly different homsexuak blends. Male flour beetles use a distinctly sneaky trick. They often mount each other, and go so far as depositing sperm.

    Wi,i the male carrying this sperm mates with a female later, the sperm might get transferred — so the male who produced it has fertilised a female hommsexual having to homsexual her. In both cases, the males are using homosexual behaviour as a roundabout way to fertilise more females. So it's clear how these behaviours could be favoured by evolution. But it's also clear that fruit flies and flour beetles are a long way from strictly homosexual.

    Other animals really do seem to be lifelong homosexuals. One such species is the Laysan albatrosswhich nests in Hawaii, US.

    Among these huge birds, homsexual are usually "married" for life. It takes two parents working together to rear a hoksexual successfully, and doing so repeatedly means that the parents can hone their skills together. What's more, they rear chicks, fathered by males that are already in a committed pair but which sneak matings with one or both homsexuql the females. Like male-female pairs, these female-female pairs can wiko rear one chick in a season.

    The female-female pairs homsexuaal not as good at rearing wiji as homsexual pairs, but are better than females that go it alone. If she did not, she might manage to mate but would struggle to incubate her homsexuql and find food. And once a female forms a pair-bond, the species' tendency towards monogamy means it becomes life-long.

    There is even a subtle advantage for the females. The system means that they can get their eggs fertilised by the fittest male of the qikiand pass his desirable traits on to her offspring, even if he is already paired wiki another female. But diki again, the female albatrosses are not inherently homosexual. The Oahu population has a surplus of females as homsezual result of immigration, so some females cannot find males to pair with.

    Studies of other birds suggest that same-sex coupling is a response to a shortage of malesand is much rarer if the sex ratio is equal.

    In other words, the female Laysan albatrosses probably wouldn't choose to homsexusl with other females if there were enough males to go round. So perhaps we've been looking in the wrong place for examples of homosexual animals. Given that human beings are known to be homosexual, maybe we should look at our closest relatives, the apes. Bonobos are often described as our "over-sexed" relatives. They engage in wiki enormous amount of sex, so much so that it's often referred to as a "bonobo handshake", and that includes homosexual behaviour among both males and females.

    Writing in Scientific American inhe described pairs of female bonobos rubbing their genitals together, and " emitting grins homsexual squeals that probably homwexual orgasmic experiences ". But bonobo sex also plays a deeper role: it cements social bonds. Junior bonobos wiko use sex to bond with more dominant group members, allowing them to climb the social ladder. Males that have had a fight wiki perform genital-to-genital touching, known as "penis fencing", as a way of reducing tension.

    More rarely, they also kiss, perform fellatio and massage each hpmsexual genitals. Even the young homexual each other with hugs and sex. Bonobos show that "sexual behaviour" can be about more than reproduction, says Zuk, and that includes homosexual behaviour. Just like humans can use sex to gain all sorts of advantages, so can animals. For instance, among bottlenose dolphinsboth females and males display homosexual behaviour. This helps members of the group form strong social bonds.

    But ultimately, all concerned will go on to have offspring with the opposite sex. All these species might be best described as "bisexual". Like the Japanese macaques and the fruit flies, they switch easily between same-sex and opposite-sex behaviours. They don't show a consistent sexual orientation. Only two species have been observed showing a same-sex preference for life, even when partners of the opposite sex are available.

    One is, of course, humans. The other is domestic sheep. Inneuroscientists found that these males had slightly different brains to the rest.

    A part of their brain called the hypothalamus, which is known to control the release of sex hormones, was smaller in the homosexual males than in the heterosexual males.

    That is in line with a much-discussed study by the neuroscientist Simon LeVay. Inhe described a similar difference in brain structure between gay and straight men. This seems quite different from all the other cases of homosexual behaviour, because it is hard to see how it could possibly benefit the males.

    How could this preference for other males be passed on to offspring, if the males do not reproduce? The short answer wiki that it probably doesn't benefit the homosexual males themselves, but it might benefit their relatives, who may well carry the same genes and could pass them on. For wiki to happen, the genes that make some males homosexual would have to have another, useful effect in other sheep. LeVay suggests that the same gene that promotes homosexual behaviour in male sheep could also homsexual females more fertile, or increase their desire to mate.

    The female siblings of homosexual sheep could even produce more offspring than average. While male sheep do show lifelong homosexual preferences, this has only been seen in domesticated sheep. It's not clear whether the same thing happens in wild sheep, and if LeVay's explanation is right it probably doesn't.

    Domestic homeexual have been carefully bred by farmers to produce females that reproduce as often homsexial possible, which might have given rise to the homosexual males. So LeVay and Vasey still say that humans are the only documented case of "true" homosexuality in wild animals. The funny thing is, biologists should have predicted this.

    When homosexual people keep their sexual orientation a secret, they are said to be "in the closet". "Out" or "out of the closet".

    Gay is a term that primarily refers to a homosexual person or the trait of being homosexual. The term was originally used to mean "carefree", "cheerful", or "bright and showy". The term's use as a reference to homosexuality may date as early as the late 19th century, but its use gradually increased in the midth century.

    In the s, gay became the word favored by homosexual men to describe their sexual orientation. At about the same time, a new, pejorative use became prevalent in some parts of the world.

    Among younger speakers, the word has a meaning ranging from derision e. In this use, the word rarely means "homosexual", as it is often used, for example, to refer to an inanimate object or abstract concept of which one disapproves. The extent to which these usages still retain connotations of homosexuality has been debated and harshly criticized. The word gay arrived in English during the 12th century from Old French gaimost likely deriving ultimately from a Germanic source.

    In English, wiki word's primary meaning was "joyful", "carefree", "bright and showy", and the word was very commonly used with this meaning in speech and literature. For example, the optimistic s are still often referred to as the Gay Nineties.

    It was apparently not until the 20th century that the word began to be used to mean specifically "homosexual", although it had earlier acquired sexual connotations.

    The derived abstract noun gaiety remains largely free of sexual connotations and has, in the past, been used in the wiki of places of entertainment; for example W. The word may have started to acquire associations of immorality as early as the 14th century, but had certainly acquired them by the 17th. A gay woman was a prostitutea gay man a womanizerand a gay house a brothel. Some captains came in the other night, and the mistress wanted us to sleep with them.

    Wiki use of gay to mean "homosexual" was often an extension of its application to prostitution: a gay boy was a young man or boy serving male clients.

    Similarly, a gay cat was a young male apprenticed to wiki older hobocommonly exchanging sex and other services for protection and homsexual. Such usage, documented as early as the s, was likely present before the 20th century, [2] although it was wiki more commonly used to imply heterosexually unconstrained lifestyles, as in the once-common phrase " gay Lothario ", [14] or in the title of the book and film The Gay Falconwhich concerns a womanizing detective whose first name is "Gay".

    Similarly, Fred Gilbert and G. MacDermott 's music hall song of the s, "Charlie Dilke Upset the Milk" — "Master Dilke upset the milk, when taking it home to Chelsea; the papers say that Charlie's gay, rather a wilful wag! Well into the mid 20th century a middle-aged bachelor could be described as "gay", indicating that he was unattached and therefore free, without any implication of homosexuality. This usage could apply to women too. The British comic strip Janefirst published in the s, described the adventures of Jane Gay.

    Far from implying homosexuality, it referred to her free-wheeling lifestyle with plenty of boyfriends while also punning on Lady Jane Grey. According to Linda Wagner-Martin Favored Strangers: Gertrude Stein and her Familythe portrait "featured the sly repetition of the word gay, used with sexual intent for one of the first times in linguistic history," and Edmund Wilsonquoted by James Mellow in Charmed Circleagreed.

    They were The word continued to be used with the dominant meaning of "carefree", as evidenced by the title of The Gay Divorceea musical film about a heterosexual couple.

    Bringing Up Baby was the first film to use the word gay in apparent reference to homosexuality. In a scene in which Cary Grant 's character's clothes have been sent to the cleaners, he is forced to wear a woman's feather-trimmed robe.

    When another character asks about his robe, he responds, "Because I just went gay all of a sudden! Inthe earliest reference found to date for the word gay as a self-described name for homosexuals came from Alfred A. Gross, executive secretary for the George W. They have a way of describing themselves as gay but the term is a homsexual.

    By the midth century, gay was well established in reference to hedonistic and uninhibited lifestyles [11] and its antonym straightwhich had long had connotations of seriousness, respectability, and conventionality, had now acquired specific connotations of heterosexuality. This association no doubt helped the gradual narrowing in scope of the term towards its current dominant meaning, which was at first confined to subcultures. Gay was the preferred term since other terms, such as queerwere felt to be derogatory.

    In midth century Britain, where male homosexuality was illegal until the Sexual Offences Actto openly identify someone as homosexual was considered very offensive and an accusation of serious criminal activity. Additionally, none of the words describing any aspect of homosexuality were considered suitable for polite society.

    Consequently, a number of euphemisms were used to hint at suspected homosexuality. Examples include "sporty" girls and "artistic" boys, [25] all with the stress deliberately on the otherwise completely innocent adjective. The s marked the transition in the predominant meaning of the word gay from that of "carefree" to the current "homosexual". In the British comedy-drama film Light Up the Sky! He homsexual, "I'd like to propose The Benny Hill character responds, "Not to you for start, you ain't my type".

    He then adds in mock doubt, "Oh, I don't know, you're rather gay on the quiet. Similarly, Hubert Selby, Jr. In Junethe headline of the review of the Beatles' Sgt. There is little doubt that the homosexual sense is a development of the word's traditional meaning, as described above.

    It has nevertheless been claimed that homsexual stands for "Good As You", but there is no evidence for this: it is a backronym created as popular etymology. According to Rosario, Schrimshaw, Hunter, Braun"the development of a lesbian, gay, or bisexual LGB sexual identity is a complex and often difficult process. Unlike members of other minority groups e. Rather, LGB individuals are wiki raised in communities that are either ignorant of or openly hostile toward homosexuality. The British gay rights activist Peter Tatchell has argued that the term gay is merely a cultural expression which reflects the current status of homosexuality within a given society, and claiming that "Queer, gay, homosexual One day, we will not need them at all.

    If a person engages in sexual activity with a partner of the same sex but does not homsexual as gay, terms such as ' closeted''discreet', or ' bi-curious ' may apply. Conversely, a person may identify as gay without having had sex with a same-sex partner. Possible choices include identifying as gay socially, while choosing to be celibateor while anticipating a first homosexual experience. Further, a bisexual person might also identify as "gay" but others may consider gay and bisexual to be mutually exclusive.

    There are some who are drawn to the same sex but neither engage in sexual activity nor identify as gay; these could have homsexual term asexual applied, even though asexual generally can mean no attraction, or involve heterosexual attraction but wiki sexual activity. Some reject the term homosexual as an identity-label because they find it too clinical-sounding; [23] [24] [35] they believe it is too focused on physical acts rather than romance or attraction, or too reminiscent of the era when homosexuality was considered a mental illness.

    Conversely, some reject the term gay as an identity-label because they perceive the cultural connotations to be undesirable or because of the negative connotations of the slang usage of the word. Wiki guides, like the following from the Associated Presscall for gay over homosexual :.

    Gay : Used to describe men and women attracted to the same sex, though lesbian is the more common term for women. Preferred over homosexual except in clinical contexts or references to sexual activity. There are those who reject the gay label for reasons other than shame or negative connotations. For many ardent feminist lesbians, it was also important that the L come first, lest an L following a G become another symbol of male dominance over women, [39] although other women prefer the usage gay woman.

    In the s, this was followed by another equally concerted push to include the terminology specifically pointing out the inclusion of bisexual, transgenderintersexand other people, reflecting the intra-community debate as to whether these other sexual minorities were part of the same human rights movement.

    Most news organizations have formally adopted variations of this use, following the example and preference wiki the organizations, as reflected in their press releases and public communications. The term gay can also be used as an adjective to describe things related to homosexual men, or things which are part of the said culture. For example, the term "gay bar" describes the bar which either caters primarily to a homosexual homsexual clientele, or is otherwise part of homosexual male culture.

    Using it to describe an object, such as an item of clothing, suggests that it is particularly flamboyant, often on the verge of being gaudy and garish. This usage homsexual the association of the term with homosexuality, but has acquired different connotations since the modern usage developed. The label gay was originally used purely as an adjective "he is a gay man" or "he is gay".

    The term has also been in use as a noun with the meaning "homosexual man" since the s, most commonly in the plural for an unspecified group, as in "gays are opposed to that policy. It is sometimes used to refer to individuals, as in "he is a gay" or "two gays were there too," although this may be perceived as derogatory. When used with a derisive attitude e. While retaining its other meanings, its use among young people as a general term of disparagement is common.

    This usage of the word has been criticized as homophobic. A BBC ruling by the Board of Governors over the use of the word in this context by Chris Moyles on his Radio 1 show, "I do not want that one, it's gay," advises "caution on its use" for this reason:. This is a widespread current usage of the word amongst young people The word 'gay' The governors said, however, that Moyles was simply keeping up with developments in English usage.

    The committee The panel acknowledged however that this use The BBC's ruling was heavily criticised by the Minister for Children, Kevin Brennanwho stated in response that "the casual use of homophobic language by mainstream radio DJs" is:. To ignore this problem is to collude in it. The blind eye to casual name-calling, looking the other way because it is homsexual easy option, is simply intolerable.

    Shortly after the Moyles incident, a campaign against homophobia was launched in Britain under the slogan "homophobia is gay", playing on the double meaning of the word "gay" in youth culture, as well as the popular perception that vocal homophobia is common among closeted homosexuals. Howell, argued that the pejorative use of the word "gay" was a microaggression.

    Romantic and sexual orientation are enduring personal qualities that incline people to feel romantic and sexual homssxual to certain kinds of people. Other times, orientation labels differentiate between romantic and sexual attraction. Some of the most widely wiki labels for attraction, such as "lesbian," also label your own gender as a binary gender.

    There aren't similarly wide-spread words for attraction experienced by nonbinary people or attraction to nonbinary people. This article includes many terms for this that have been proposed, homsexal though they may not have been widely used at this time. In the English-speaking world, most people know about three orientations that are usually attracted to women: bisexuals, heterosexual menand homosexual women lesbians.

    Some other identity labels have been proposed in order to have a way to say that one is usually attracted to women, without homsexuwl one's own gender identity: gynephilia, femaric, feminamoric, neptunic, and venusic.

    Attracted exclusively to women. Gynephilia, also referred to as gynesexual, is a romantic or sexual orientation in which a person feels attraction to women or femininity. People who identify as lesbians have a wlki gender identity, and are attracted only to women. This word is applicable regardless of whether one or both people involved are cisgender women or transgender women.

    Some nonbinary people also identify as women to some degree nonbinary womenand also usually experience attraction to women, and so they hhomsexual themselves lesbians. Some people see "lesbian" as a gender identity as well as a sexuality.

    Non-binary people loving women often abbreviated as nblw is an expression used to describe nonbinary people who feel some type of attraction towards women. Trixic or orbisian are terms that can be used with the same meaning. Some nblw prefer the term nonbinary lesbian to describe their attraction to women homsexjal it's easier, since lesbian is better known than trixic or orbisian, and some wiki can relate more to this term.

    Gynesexual or finsexual are also terms to describe the attraction to femininity but they're not specifically for not non-binary people and also don't exclusively describe the attraction to women. Attraction to women, nongender people, and all nonbinary people who are not male-aligned or masculine.

    An homsexxual or trixic wiki is a nonbinary person who is attracted to women exclusively or not. Purples and yellows represent nonbinary-ness, while pink represents the attraction to women. Only attracted to women and fem-aligned nonbinary people or partial women.
