I'm not sure.

Thus, the longer-necked giraffes pass on their long neck gene to their offspring.

Homosexuality, as far as we know, is not passed on via a gene (hence why you could have several generations of straight people followed by one gay person and then several more straight). Therefore, homosexuality can never be phased out by natural selection, because the "dominant" straight people can produce homosexual offspring, who will go on to survive as normal.

Homosexuality should never be encouraged or discouraged. It should just be accepted and we should all let everyone get on with their lives, no matter their sexual orientation, race, gender, whatever.

I would recommend listening to Richard Dawkins, a biologist, address the problem of passing down the "gay gene".
