  §  Comment “Homosexuality: sexual interest in members of one's own sex. Female homosexuality is known as lesbianism. Many male and female homosexuals prefer to be called gay, a term that has been associated with homosexuality since the early 1900s. Although many people consider homosexuality a moral offense and homosexual sex is illegal in some states and nations, it is no longer considered a psychiatric disorder, and genetic and neural evidence that sexual orientation has a physiological basis is growing. Societal attitudes toward homosexuality have varied greatly, historically and culturally. It was celebrated in ancient Greece and respected historically in Japan. In European cultures, religious and secular laws against homosexuality began in the Middle Ages as prohibitions against any kind of sexual activity not aimed a procreation. Since the Stonewall Rebellion in 1969, many groups have formed to fight for the civil rights of homosexuals (see Gay Rights Movement). Condemnatory attitudes toward homosexuality have complicated efforts to combat AIDS in places like the U.S., where the disease initially appeared among homosexuals.”—Encyclopedia.com from Electric Library, http://www.encyclopedia.com, accessed May 19, 1998.
