I'd say the main factors of those that go homosexual tend to stem back towards relationships with their parents. Such as say for a male homosexual, he most likely has had problems with his father whether the father being abusive or not there, still a similar outcome, just as to if a mother babies the son too much I think it can lead to homosexual tendancies because they will pick up the femaniness...
Nope. Wrong, this was the thinking back in the dark ages! (The 1950s, I believe).
I had NO problems with my father, he never hit me, never abused me, barely ever raised his voice (even when I scratched my name on the dashboard of his new car...hey, I was maybe three?)
My mother? DEFINATELY not the "babying" type...she was the sort who'd throw you into the pool and shout "Swim!"
so that empirical evidence disproves that line of thinking? i say it reinforces it. you had a softspoken, gentle dad, and a more abbrasive mother. wouldn't you then prefer men because of that relationship?
homosexuality is not genetic or a mutation in DNA.
homosexuality only occurs in nature in extreme situations of species displacement/scarcity and the primal urge to mate is so overwhelming two animals will try to have a relationship.
homosexuality in humans is the simple cocktail of both nature and nurture. the relationship with your parents/family members and peers, and the chemical influences from your environment during important stages of development. that's all.
it shouldn't be any different for humans than animals. were so much more susceptiple to this change in behavior because of our huge psychological and emotional thresholds.

It doesn't matter what was said previous to this because it is all basically hormonal. I respond to a particular set of hormones. Each of us receives messages from one another through a chemical exchange.
From across the room I can usually detect if someone is attractive to me. Years back it may have been physical or social characteristics,but it all comes down to the Chemical Nature of the person.
Let me put it this way. I can tell when a female is in menstruation. I can detect it from a distance. I do not find myself attracted to this odor at all, yet I know that there are many males out there that would respond without being aware of what it is that is attracting them.
I have met women that are turned off by a man's odors and natural pheromones, so men and women mask themselves with perfumes and chemicals. Some relationships are based on visual ques instead of chemical ques and they fizzle out fast and people tend to get angry at one another after the honeymoon is over.
It is all Chemical, male, female, hemale, shemale...what is relative is whether or not you follow your nose!

It is a fad currently to act gay.
Homosexuality is abnormal.
It is a sexual sin.
Voluptuaries, one of the seven deadly sins.
Luckily the bible is nothing but stories written by goat herders over 2000 years ago and we have ZERO evidence that it's the word of god...or that something like a god even exists. So I get why people don't care about those "rules", just like they don't take rules in Harry Potter literally
