Alright so last time i talked about how she didnt like One Piece, well now, after showing her a romantic harem(Clannad) she saids something that i actually agree with. Harems, in real life, would most likely not work. At first I asked why? Her annswer was that in real life, if a dudes only friends were girls(or mostly) they tend to turn gay., I always say that the girls are all attracted to the guy in the harem, well her answer to that was a lot of girls are attracted to gay guys, which is also true. so I thought about it and I tend to agree with this one, I mean there is an off chance it could work, but then again it ha a higher chance of failing. So what are yur thoughts on the matter? do you agree or disagree?

"Turning gay" is the problem right there.  If someone's gay, they're gay.  Homosexuality isn't some dark side that folks need to be lured to.

@1337W422102: However, in the case of the harem itself, the girls might just go after one another, forgoing the male lead altogether and leaving him cold and alone once more.

Turning gay isn't really a choice they would already been gay, and also the main harem guy usually like one of the girls

So you incorrect

Harems exist in anime. Anime is fiction. Fiction is not real life. Therefore harems do not exist in real life. I feel like the argument should have ended there. 
 
But as already pointed out, your sister seems to think guys can "turn gay" by hanging out with lots of girls. It doesn't work that way.

Harems does exist in real life, Kings in the old days have them (but not in the same way as anime show them)

Your sister is ignorant in terms of homosexuality, it isn't a choice or something you turn into.

Hmm I suppose. I guess we're left to question what qualifies as a harem and whether it is practical. I don't really think it's practical these days for either the girls or the guy, to many factors to consider. But I guess it's possible, even if it's just role playing or whatever. But then it still will never be like the ideal harems in anime obviously.
 
It just occurred to me that OP's sister said that harems would not work in real life because even if a bunch of girls liked a guy, the guy would either be gay or turn gay. But wouldn't this still be considered a harem even if the guy is gay? or even bisexual or a hermaphrodite? Or does the guy HAVE to be straight and/or fertile?

What about reverse Harems?

Read the first comment I made where they just start turning to each other for one reason or another... along with the divorce comment.
