It is normal for heterosexual men to have very close friendships with one or very few other men. Perhaps you are referencing that common social satisfaction. In which case, it is shared by heterosexuals in the same way with only the complication of the homosexual disorder. That perhaps would complicate a normal man to man friendship I suppose if one of the men had that disorder, but still, the social aspect would possibly be the same.

Quote:Or are you suggesting that we can reduce all desire for companionship to a base desire to procreate, and that because of our ability to reason, we are able to separate the communitive goal from the procreative?  If that's the case, I disagree even more strongly.  Such a description ultimately robs humanity of its soul.
Can you make a description which does not rob humanity of its flesh?

I think for better or for worse that biology has explained the base nature of the human body quite well. Why humans kiss and have certain social tendencies are often rooted in the general urge to stay alive on the individual and genetic level. Even normal man to man interactions are rooted in the flesh of the human and can be seen as expressing many base traits.

The body and soul make up the human. They are both part of what it means to be human. The effects of original sin pit the flesh against the spirit, but it is still fundamentally good (just weakened and misguided).
