Seriously. What the hell are you talking about?

I have stated twice - and will now reaffirm a third time - that there is no evidence homosexuals are “born that way”.

This is my third post on this thread and the third time I’ve agreed with you.

Do you get it now?

Let me say it a fourth time: there is no evidence that homosexuals are born with homosexual behavior tendencies.

Are we clear on that now? Good.

I said “Actually” because, like you, I take issue with the statement:

“[Homosexuals] are born with the body of one sex and the brain of the other.”

That’s a statement I’ve never heard used as a physiological reason for homosexual behavior but “actually” I have heard it used to describe what appears to be brain damage in male-to-female transgenders.

Transgenderism has nothing to do with sexual attraction. They are two completely different subjects.

I’ve never heard of Levay. I was referring to Kruijver. ...And the only reason I found that study the slightest bit credible is because Kruijver actually presents photos of the differences. The study is reprinted here:

Your implication that I disagreed with you is a dishonest interpretation of my statements. It’s annoying. Please stop.

We may find ourselves agreeing more if, after I say something you don't say: 'Actually...' as if what I said was wrong. It's a tactic used too often and I won't let it slide. Now, you've already explained you meant something else and that's fine.

BTW, thanks for the pointer to the study — I read the abstract and it sounds vaguely familiar but I'm not sure I've read the entire study before. I'll take a look. Still, what many don't realize is that behavior and experience change brain structure; which means we have to be very careful with our conclusions to brain studies.
