all of this can be summed up by looking at left handed people.

left handed people are a small portion of the population, like homosexuals, so lets ask the same questions.
are left handed people born that way, or is it a preference?
can a left handed person be taught to be right handed and live that way?
is there a "left handed" gene?
can two right handed people have a left handed child?

my answers:

lefties are born that way. you see them at birth reach for things with their left hand. sex drive developes at puberty, so at puberty homosexuality will show itself.
back in the day lefties were often taught to be righties, but their first reaction was to always use their left hand. same with homosexuals. some can "learn to be straight", but will always be gay.
no evidence of a left handed gene, but we assume there must be one because we have left handed people.
two righties do have lefty children.

one person wrote that if behavior was caused by genetics we have no free will. apples and oranges. being born with a mental defect is genetic, and it effects behavior. it has nothing to do with free will.

Why does the OP author care so much about who anyone else has sex with?

Nobody is born gay or straight we are just born. We can't even comprehend what it is until we learn about it maybe 5 years later. So for someone to say "the same way redheads are born that way" or he was born gay is just ignorant and looking for excuses.

Regarding homosexual encounters, studies report that 60%-80% of all males have had at least one homosexual encounter (may include mutual masterbation, oral, anal, etc).


How on earth did they get these statistics BiggerPicture?

Think about it now.

Did you decide to be straight?

Comes a time when we all make a choice, obviously yours was the wrong one.

You're not describing a sexual preference, you're describing things you don't like or consider to be sexual perversions. If I'm putting words in your wouth, please correct me - but what you described is not a sexual orientation such as homosexuality or heterosexuality so please think of a new argument or I'll lump you in with people that have sex with animals too and I'll provide rationale.


Sorry, you're wrong. Sexual perversion, preference, immorality, adultery, lusting, fornication, sodomy, bestiality, necrophilia, etc - they all fall under the same category. If I choose to have sex with a girl, that's my choice. If I choose to have sex with a man, that's my choice. Attraction is different, however. That's what I'm interested in. Where the attraction comes from.

This has been proven to be passed from mother to child, the genetic traits in dealing with these environmental poisons, and is the root cause of puberty becoming common for girls at 10 and under and little boys growing breasts.
Of course this would cause gender confusion and influence attraction.


Please explain historical gays if modern pollutants are the cause?

More like they have a greater chance of coming out of the closet and living an openly gay life. A lot of people never come out of the closet because their parents would disown them.

If you'd like it spelled out for you, we are born predestined to be a particular way when we deveolop our sexuality. And heads up - not all red heads are red at birth.

What else you got?

But you wouldn't be attracted to the man you're having sex with , just like a gay person wouldn't be attracted to the woman. Where do you get your illogical ideas from ?

Actually I assume you want to talk of animal husbandry in an attempt to group me in the box you envision?
I am an animal husbandman. I don't buy it but you can try and sell it.
My point is simple.
Sexual preferences are derived mostly from past influences.
Mostly from a lack of a strong father figure.
Add to that genetic problems from endocrine disruptors and the debate quickly changes.
The op makes a very valid point in asking the questions.
It is too big a scapegoat to say it's genetic when very little has ever been claimed without addressing everything when those studies are done.
It's no secret that most studies are funded to find pre-supposed results or the funding stops.
Money drives most if not all of these studies today.
Without a clear grasp of everything involved these studies will always remain subjective.
But maybe thats why they are done in this way.
It's just to easy to claim anyone is born this way, or God made them this way.
Jails and prisons are full of people that make the same claim for many other reasons.

Sad indeed for the homophobes and religious zealots, who cry "gay agenda" in science. but, nevertheless true.



Anyone who uses words like homophobic or homophobes, they themselves have a "gay agenda".

The word "homophobic" is such a great word. I'd like to know what "scientist" thought that one. Oh that's right... Wasn't it the homosexual George Weinberg? Who posted many of those studies YOU talk about?



So you think that gay people are trying to convert the straights ? The gay agenda thing makes me laugh , They don't have secret meetings , and they are not brainwashed. It's natural , I'd be more concerned by the straight agenda , of consant sexual imagery in music videos , films and advertising. The media doesn't make you gay or straight , Genetics do. If you can't work that out I think you should just delete your account and rethink your existance.


Ditto, for one to imply the English dictionary word "homophoobe" does not mean a fearer of homosexuals.

but is a "gay agenda" specific word, and ditto for homphobic (the adjective, duh) would mean they already have an incredibly biased, inflated, HETEROCENTRIC view of their own sexuality, as if it itself empowers them against others. No one is talking about one scientists, I have never heard of that name before but if that scientists is gay and you know it, its more evidence you obsess over person's homosexuality and have a deep personal hate about it - wonder why.

I don't think there is a one size fits all explanation for how someone becomes a homosexual.. for people, I think it can be different ..

Some people "go gay" after a bad relationship.. my lesbian friend admits she's still attracted to guys, but after bad experiences with men she's "changed teams"

In others, it could literally be a hormonal thing.. for some it might just be a matter of attraction.. you can't really control who you're attracted to .. be it male or female.

For some, how they were raised.. childhood experiences.. things like that can come into play..

But ultimately for me it comes down to this... why does it matter? why do you care? .. it's their life, let them love who they love..

Why do you care so much about why I care so much?

In actuality, I care more about where the attraction origination from, not the action. Why are you in my thread? You're annoying

Is your view on Lesbianism the same ? Or would it be too strong of a presence of a father figure ? haha

By your logic all those things also fall into the same catergory as heterosexuality.

Heterosexuality and homosexuality and bisexuality are not choices.

Only the sexual act itself is the choice.

I am addressing the increase of homosexual activity in recent years and the statistics that were presented in this thread.
To ignore my points is not productive in this type of adult conversation where critical thought processes are necessary.

Do you agree with everything god says in the old testament op? There's some pretty saucy stuff in there that I'm sure you don't believe in.

Although I disagree with some of the things you said , I think it's the best and most logical view yet.
