The answer is they don't. It is impossible for a child not exposed to sex or sexual concepts to show any gay tendencies before sexual development. You can't crave chocolate ice cream, if you never tasted it and don't know it exists.
The 5 year old boy who likes barbies and the 5 year old girl who likes GI Joes are only showing gay tendencies in the minds of ignorant adults. It is not an indicator of which gender they will want to have romantic or sexual relationships with 10+ years down the line. If they stay around people who condition them to think they are not normal, they are more likely to do abnormal things because they will grow into that identity of not being normal.

Food for thought. Why would anyone chose to be gay knowing that society people in society rather could potentially kill them for being gay. Make sense of that.
My God "instructs" me that the act of homosexual relations is a sin. A man loving a man is perfectly fine. A woman loving a woman is perfectly fine. Love is encouraged, lust isn't, in ANY case (even between a man and woman).
And Homosexuals can go to Heaven, if they truly believe in Christ and actively get conviction for ANY of their sins, whether they are liars, drug addicts, porn addicts, WHATEVER. Jesus died for the sins of ALL. Homosexuals aren't excluded.
No species has been found in which homosexual behaviour has not been shown to exist, with the exception of species that never have sex at all, such as sea urchins and aphis. Moreover, a part of the animal kingdom is hermaphroditic, truly bisexual. For them, homosexuality is not an issue.
Two male giraffes in Kenya.
An example of overlooking homosexual behavior is noted by Bruce Bagemihl describing mating giraffes where nine out of ten pairings occur between males.
Every male that sniffed a female was reported as sex, while anal intercourse with orgasm between males was only "revolving around" dominance, competition or greetings.
Some researchers believe this behavior to have its origin in male social organization and social dominance, similar to the dominance traits shown in prison sexuality. Others, particularly Joan Roughgarden, Bruce Bagemihl, Thierry Lodé and Paul Vasey suggest the social function of sex (both homosexual and heterosexual) is not necessarily connected to dominance, but serves to strengthen alliances and social ties within a flock. Others have argued that social organization theory is inadequate because it cannot account for some homosexual behaviors, for example, penguin species where same-sex individuals mate for life and refuse to pair with females when given the chance. While reports on many such mating scenarios are still only anecdotal, a growing body of scientific work confirms that permanent homosexuality occurs not only in species with permanent pair bonds, but also in non-monogamous species like sheep.
One report on sheep cited below states:
Approximately 8% of rams exhibit sexual preferences [that is, even when given a choice] for male partners (male-oriented rams) in contrast to most rams, which prefer female partners (female-oriented rams). We identified a cell group within the medial preoptic area/anterior hypothalamus of age-matched adult sheep that was significantly larger in adult rams than in ewes...

The egg carrier has gay people in her family. The more children she has the higher the tolerance level the womb has to one of the gender chemicals ie testosterone or estragen. the more children she has example sons the more likely the youngest is going to be homosexual. Also it depends on how much estragen the male son is exposed to in the womb. If he's exposed to alot of estragen most likely his mind will be female.

It is a proven fact, undeniably so, that there has never, EVER been a case of a homosexual couple having a biologic child - they can adopt, sure. But that child got his genetics from his BIOLOGICAL parents.
So, LGBTs and LGBT defenders, please answer this for me - where does the gene come from that makes a homosexual "born that way"?
We have genes on the Y that can turn females with XX chromosomes into males and genes on the X that can turn males with XY chromosomes into females… wow! Maleness and femaleness are NOT determined by having an X or a Y, since switching a couple of genes around can turn things upside down.
