From a sexual selection perspective being straight is key to an individual's genetic survival. But, from a kinship selection or group selection perspective the survival of the gene itself is based on the group's survival, and homosexuality has been shown to improve child nurturing and cooperation in communities. This is why it's just as prevalent in mammals (who must nurture babies) as it is in humans

Firstly, you're committing a slippery slope fallacy. Very few people are homosexual so it's not an issue of survival, so don't act like it is. Secondly, homosexuality has been documented several times in nature, so it isn't necessarily unnatural (which isn't what you said, but seems as if that's where you might lead to). Thirdly, there is so "correct". There is no purpose; the closest one could argue is an evolutionary purpose of survival, but as we've already concluded: that is not even close to an issue.

"Nothing in the science of biology supports homosexuality" is what you're saying right? I'm curious if your thought experiment about separating sexes is the only basis for this assertion.

Nothing in the science of biology supports the idea that same sex is biologically correct. Don't believe me? Ask yourself what would happen to the entire human race if at some point in time, Men and women were completely separated from each other. The answer, of course, is evental Human Extinction because no reproduction is taking place

it's better to be who you are and not what people want you to be and if your gay there's no problem with it and it's not better to be straight if your gay

From a natural perspective, being straight is a key trait to a human's survival. Society being created since the primitive human age has somewhat skewed this point of view though. Survival is no longer necessary as we have come to evolve with a sense of morals. It could be argued that being gay is a mental illenss/disability. I would mostly agree with this theory, but that is another conversation. I still chose to agree with this topic as being straight is still natural and they can breed, give mother and father figures in children's lives, etc.

that will work to your advantage if your at the top of certain attractive qualities (looks, career, humor, etc). but they will work against you if you lack those qualities. your thinking in purely quantitative terms and ignoring qualitative factors.

I think that the competition factor is still outweighed by the percentage of people that could feel attraction to you and that you could feel attraction to them

by your math there are certainly more options for straight people, but they also have more competition.

when you do find someone as a gay person, they will have fewer options besides you. that can make for more stable relationships

No, you misunderstood me. If you're gay and you choose to act as you're straight, that's bad. But if you're straight and behave as you are straight, it's better than to be gay and behave as you are gay. I'm not talking about the behaviour, I could put it as "It's better to feel opposite sex attraction than to feel same sex attraction."

so thinking in terms of math and ease of selecting mates is worse then being whatever you naturally feel.

it's better to be honest with yourself then to live a lie

simply because of the chances. Since there are more straight people, straight people are more likely to find a partner, and therefore more likely to be happy.
