Homosexuality refers to any erotic attraction towards the same sex, whether expressed or not. Gay boylovers and Lesbian girllovers can be counted among the group known as homosexuals, if they express a preference towards members of the same sex.
Minor Attracted People are nevertheless generally excluded from discussions of homosexualities - particularly in the post-1994 western world.
Despite many attempts to locate (and politically mobilize) a "gay gene", it appears that genetics are unable to accurately predict homosexuality, since it is a complex phenomenon with social, cultural and behavioral components. In some cases, support for gay rights on the other hand, has been correlated with genetics.
"Gay" is a term now used to describe roughly same-age attracted homosexual men. Gay is also used in reference to cultural identities and political movements which have now diverged from the radicalism of queer and pederastic politics. Today, gays and most of the modern LGBTQQIA+ Movement are generally associated with moderate liberal attempts to assimilate with mainstream society and enhance their status as a socially acceptable minority, for example, the modern LGBTQ+ lobby has even attempted to criminalize as hate speech, comparisons with pedophilia in the UK.
Central to the mainstreaming/assimilation attempts of modern gay activists is the denial, if not outright revision of their movement's former manifestations against the Age of Consent.
