Argument: Non-procreation b/w gays is good for overpopulated world

Issue Report: Gay marriage


Scott Bidstrup “Gay Marriage: The Arguments and the Motives” ’04: “If ten percent of all the human race that is gay were to suddenly, totally refrain from procreation, I think it is safe to say that the world would probably be significantly better off. One of the world’s most serious problems is overpopulation and the increasing anarchy and human misery that is resulting from it. Seems to me that gays would be doing the world a really big favor by not bringing more hungry mouths into a world that is already critically overburdened ecologically by the sheer number of humans it must support. So what is the useful purpose to be served in mindlessly encouraging yet more human reproduction?”
