Story Idea Extended: Overpopulated Take 2

I had an idea this morning that kind of extends the idea I had the other day regarding over population. In a world where overpopulation is rife I can see the government promoting homosexuality as an alternative to heterosexuality. The logic being that homosexuals don’t produce babies, which could curb the overpopulation of the world.

This would be a stark contrast to todays world where homosexuality is still frowned on by most governments, maybe future governments would give special benefits to homosexual couples in order to stop to growth of the human race to unmanageable proportions.

Not sure how this would work, whether there would be a hetero backlash. Maybe people would start campaigning for hetero rights? It would be an interesting way to look at the world.
