Today there are no longer any mainstream services, groups or even dating apps that are exclusively for those who are same-sex attracted. Many LGBT organisations today campaign, in effect, against the right to be homosexual. This is because transgender politics calls for people to be recognised for who they claim to be internally, not for the sex of their bodies. The result is that, this year, ‘Chiyo Gomes’ – a female who has had a mastectomy – is a finalist in next year’s Mr Gay UK competition. Furthermore, despite the female biology and lack of penis, in Britain today it could be construed as a hate crime to refer to ‘Chiyo’ as a straight woman rather than a gay man.
As PJ O’Rourke pointed out sometimes the gender or even sex differences don;t matter, as when trading bonds. Sometimes they do, as when making babies.
Having sex is more of a leisure activity than a making babies one – even in a world without contraception that’s true – but biological reality still strikes as something fairly important in such activity, no?
