Yes, zero is a number. It reflects the existing evidence for a gay gene. And no, this is not a flame.

Just to be fair though...have they found a heterosexual gene?

In my opinion based on anecdotal evidence I can count without taking my shoes off, homosexuality seems to crops up from childhood trauma/deficiencies.

It is funny to hear homosexual advocators condeming an unhappy gay man using counceling to become a happy straight man....but whole-heartedly take to the idea of an unhappy man getting his penis chopped off to become a happy sort-of-woman.

That's a great question. From what I've read on the subject, nobody is looking for a heterosexual gene. I don't believe there's a lot of research behind the root causes of pedophilia, but they haven't found a pedophilia gene either. As I see it, sexuality can be fluid in those confused about their sexual identity. It's quite a complex issue. As I see it, biology and ex-gays speak volumes.

The first article from the list of articles in post 37 is an excellent summary of the issue: How Might Homosexuality Develop? Putting the Pieces Together. We (there's a team of us here) have collected a lot of information on the subject. What has been posted in this thread is what I believe to be an excellent summary of the information. See my profile for more information.

It sounds like you're saying there is some inconsistencies from some homosexual advocates, and if so, I would agree.

Because homosexuals are often shunned by those who seem to forget homosexuals are human, I try to consider how my writing comes across to those struggling with same-sex desires. But not just my writing - my actions as well.

What I mean is:

We see inconsistencies coming from some homosexual advocates and I have to wonder if my writing here exacerbates the problem. While I completely disagree with the homosexual lifestyle, I want to make it clear that I'm condemning the behavior and not the person. For heaping the wrong attitude towards some folks, we may be alienating them even further and in doing so, acting as a factor in their inconsistencies.

Of course, no matter what we say to some folks, they're so jaded they don't really hear what we're saying.
