I can not deny that there was always a background murmur and some sexual experiences during my childhood, also with girls, but all was relatively calm until one day, in the disco where every friday all high school people met…
Sexuality is not unique but plastic.
Until very recent the sexuality was unique, and everything that did not fit with that belief was unnatural, bad and wrong, however, with the passage of time, science and common sense have shown that sexual diversity actually exists throughout nature. The implications of this reality are very important because show that sexuality is not unique but plastic, and that sex has more functions than the accepted of the reproduction and pleasure.
Establishing ties and strengthen the cohesion of the community are functions of sex not only found in species such as the bonobo, but are also functions found in cultures as avant-garde as the Inuit peoples of Greenland. We are quite clear that sexual diversity is an essential evolutionary factor in nature and, therefore, in humans. It is thanks to the sexual diversity that we are here today. All the beliefs against are a consequence of fear and lack of knowledge. With the articles you have below is what we want to show.
The following article speaks about Moscas de Colores research initiated almost two years ago, following the publication of our Kalaallisut Gay and Lesbian Dictionary, name given to the language of the Inuit people of Greenland. Starting up with the study of the collected words and the intention of understanding them, we were following the thread till we reached surprising and important conclusions that we want to share with you in our eagerness to show how natural is the human sexual diversity and its features.

The news seemed interesting, but each of the links provided the same information and it did not report too much. As you know, in Moscas de Colores, we are very interested in any scientific information on sexual diversity in any of its aspects, so this news needed more detail to know if it was true or not and, in the second case, find out what was behind so much headline. That’s why we visited the website of the Cornell University (US) to look for that study and to see what we found.
The fight for the recognition of sexual diversity has required 200 years to get their first fruits in legislation. However, once achieved equal rights, we must continue working to get full social equality for the purpose of this equality in rights spread across the globe, stay in time and make a happier humanity. For this, it is necessary to know sexuality in an accurate way and in all its breadth, and that this knowledge flow to strip the opinions of prejudice that humanity drags since the emergence of monotheistic religions, without well knowing the reason. A good way to do it is by compared sexuality. How is sexuality in the rest of the animal kingdom? How is sexuality in other human societies?
