[introduction]

Homosexuality is not a kind of behaviour, but a condition: it is the condition of being attracted sexually by members of one's own sex. This condition is common both to men and to women, and it is experienced to some extent by most human beings at some stage of their lives.

It is foolish to regard homosexuality and heterosexuality as two absolute classes Into one of which all human beings fall absolutely. Rather, the human personality ranges through all the shades of grey between dominant heterosexuality—the majority of our society—to predominant homosexuality—a largish minority.
