I think, biologically, it is possible for someone to develop as one sex, and then switch to another sex. Maybe they have latent hormones that cause
them to lean more one way than the other, despite their physical characteristics. It is obvious that we have some men born more feminine than others,
and we have some women born more masculine than others.
Now, I think you are asking the harder question about whether or not this "should" lead to homosexuality and/or sex change operations. My answer to
both of those questions is a resounding NO.
I know we have a lot of homosexual members on ATS, and I hope they don't take it personally, but I don't believe it is biological in nature, and I
don't even believe that it is more than a perversion. If a man is homosexual, then the last thing that should be attractive to him is another
homosexual man? Hmmm? He should only be attracted to masculine heterosexual men, if the affliction is real? The same goes for women. If a women is
homosexual, the last thing in the world that should be attractive to her is a masculine women dressed and acting butch? How does that make any
I am a very straight man, and I have seen other men that were attractive, and in a prison setting, or a very, very, long sea tour, maybe I would start
to have thoughts? But, these were very feminine men, that could be mistaken for women. I have never in my life seen a masculine man that was
attractive to me. It seems to me the same would be true for a homosexual man. Maybe they see some feminine men or masculine women that they might
branch out to during a long dry spell, but in general, their attraction should be the masculine male.
Since, we all see in practice that homosexual men and women are generally paired up with other homosexual men and women, it seems to shoot a hole in
the whole biological theory. If they are hardwired to be feminine and be attracted to masculine, then we should not see them with other feminine men,
and vice versa for women.
Therefore, in my very unmedical, and probably intolerant and sexist opinion, for which I apologize in advance, but in my opinion, homosexuality is
just a fetish or perversion, and not biological in nature.
