A heterosexual person can avoid most sexual sins by just getting married and having relations with their wife (of course sexual sin still presents itself greatly even in this state). On another note, I don't see how a homosexual gains any different merit compared to a heterosexual who consecrates themselves as a virgin. I would say that for a heterosexual having to give up marriage, sexual relations, and children is of even more merit since a homosexual gives up none of those unless they desire to live in a state of mortal sin. The homosexual has no real choice in the matter and in some ways gives a lot of merit to the fact that they have to accept such a large burden. Either way, for one to consecrate themselves as completely chaste for their entries lives is greatly rewarded by God regardless of sexual orientation.

A homosexual Catholic who is faithful to the teachings of the Church differs from a consecrated virgin in that the latter chooses that path, while former is, in a sense, forced into celibacy.
Right. In either sense, both are making the choice to choose God over the world. However, one argue that the merit of choosing celibacy would be greater than being forced into it. Either way, it's of great merit and I have no idea what of would be of greater. I'll leave that to the theologians.
