The new database includes the year the article was written. This information was obtained from a best effort in reading each article where some did not have dates. In those instances, the year the article was put in the database was used.

Wow, Scripter. That is just a fantastic list. You have done a great job. I wish I had half the time it would take to wade through all of it, although I know it will come up bit by bit over the course of the next few years.

Shalom.

Great job scrip! This may be the most comprehensive database around. The topic and year subdivisions make it even more valuable.

Thanks!!!

Great work!

The homosexual lifestyle is a much larger killer than SUV's,Global warming, assault rifles, guns and terrorisism combined!

A quick examnination of a few tables at the Center for Disease Control can verify this.

I have yet to see a picture of Diane Feinstein holding up a sick gay man on the floor of the US Senate to illustrate the dangers! Ala the famous picture of her holding up an assault rifle to illustrate gun dangers.

I am also surprised that the right does continually release this info with some serious debate on the “it ain’t hurting no one / privacy of the bedroom” position gays take.

The huge costs of medical care for homosexuals draws monies away from the little children and education, welfare, Medicare I could go on and on…

“We finally realize that recruitment is the only answer...lesbian goals must be to recruit more lesbians.”

“[I am] tired of the old chestnut that our movement for public acceptance has not increased and will not increase the number of gay men and lesbians in existence. ‘There are more of us than there used to be.’”

Donna Minkowitz, “Recruit, Recruit, Recruit,” Advocate, December 29, 1992.

I thought you might find this informative.

The following is the conclusion of: The Gay Gene? by Jeffrey Satinover, M.D.

Here, then is a final summary, in the form of a dialogue.

Isn't homosexuality heritable?

Yes, significantly.

So it is inherited?

No, it is not.

I'm confused. Isn't there is a "genetic component" to homosexuality?

Yes, but "component" is just a loose way of indicating genetic associations and linkages. This will not make sense unless you understand what, and how little, "linkage" and "association" really means.

What about all the evidence that shows that homosexuality "is genetic"?

There is not any, and none of the research itself claims there is; only the press and, sadly, certain researchers do--when speaking in sound bites to the public.

But isn't homosexuality "biologically in the brain"?

Of course it is. So is just about everything else. I'll
bet people who pray regularly have certain enlarged portions of their brains!

So doesn't that mean that homosexuality is "innate"?

No more than prayer is. The brain changes with use or nonuse as much as muscles do--a good deal more, in fact. We just do not usually see it happening.

But doesn't homosexuality run in families?

Yes.

So you get it from your parents, right?

You get viruses from your parents, too, and some bad habits. Not everything that is familial is innate or genetic.

But it just seems to make sense. From the people I know there's a type--it's got to be inherited--that runs in families and a lot of these people are gay, right?

That is what associated traits are--but what exactly is the associated trait--or traits--you are detecting? If there is one thing the research confirms, it is that it is not "gayness" itself. That is why these traits are sometimes in evidence at a very early age, long before sexuality is shaped.

So what are these traits?

An important question, indeed. Science is being seriously obstructed in its effort to answer that question. If we were allowed--encouraged--to answer it, we would soon develop better ideas on what homosexuality is and how to change, or better, prevent it. We would know who was at greater risk for becoming homosexual and what environments--family or societal--foster it. As one prominent gay activist researcher implied, all genetic things being equal, it is a whole lot easier to become "gay" in New York than in Utah. So who do you think would benefit most from that kind of research?

Well, what traits do you guess are "associated," as you put it, with homosexuality?

May I speculate, perhaps wildly? That is how scientific hypotheses are first generated. The important thing is not to avoid ideas that prove wrong, just not to cling to them if they do.

Okay, go ahead, speculate.

Intelligence, anxiety, sensitivity, aesthetic abilities, taste. You know, all the stereotypes.

But where do these traits come from? Aren't they inherited?

We do not know yet. Some may be. Or rather, we do not know how much is inherited, and which elements are direct and which merely further associated and linked with other yet more fundamental traits. But you are getting the picture. That is how the research ought to proceed. It
is not necessarily that the traits that facilitate homosexuality are themselves bad; perhaps many are gifts. Athleticism is a generally good thing, and we think highly of people who satisfy their athletic impulses as, say, outstanding BBPs. Not so the fellow who merely becomes a thug.

Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

"Like most psychiatrists," says Dr. Spitzer, "I thought that homosexual behavior could be resisted--but that no one could really change their sexual orientation. I now believe that's untrue--some people can and do change."

Levay quote regarding his own research:
"[His 1991 research] made the unassuming LeVay one of the most misunderstood men in America. "It's important to stress what I didn't find," he points out with the courtly patience of someone who long ago got used to waiting for the rest of the world to catch up. "I did not prove that homosexuality is genetic, or find a genetic cause for being gay. I didn't show that gay men are 'born that way,' the most common mistake people make in interpreting my work. Nor did I locate a gay center in the brain--INAH3 is less likely to be the sole gay nucleus of the brain than part of a chain of nuclei engaged in men and women's sexual behavior. My work is just a hint in that direction--a spur, I hope, to future work."
