Homosexual agenda ping. It's a very long article, but the information it contains is incredible!
Stop picking on me!
If we ever find the gay gene, we can cure it.
Thanks for the great post!
It's either a mental disorder, which can be dealt with or a choice, which society can also choose to condemn.
We're ALL born that way, and we all have to deal with it.
I'm married with six children. I'm oriented towards having sex with as many hot women as I can get my hands on.
What does that tell you about what I should do?
Don't care what the experts say, really,
Families "know" when they have a child who is born gay.
It does happen.
Not every gay person is born gay.
But some are.
But but the gay penguins in the Central Park Zoo proved it was natural and good.
It doesn't destroy the argument that people who aren't hurting anyone else ought to be left alone.

The most compelling evidence is that of 27 pairs of identical twins in which one twin was homosexual, only 3 of their twins were homosexual.
If homosexuality is purely genetic, somebody needs to tell the other 24 twins they're not hetero.
Evidently you believe that morality and societal values are irrelevant and that our values actually infringe upon the "rights" of others. Should we all stop eating pork and force women into burkas because to not do so offends Muslims?
I saw the makings of an interesting argument on FR a few weeks ago, but lost track of the thread.
Lots of folks feel that homosexuals can change. Then someone brought up that other perverts, child molesters and their ilk, cannot be changed. Someone asked how one set of sexual deviants can be expected to alter their activities, but others can't.
I don't suppose they settled that issue a few weeks ago : )
Can we just get over this ridiculous "born" or "bred" argument? Why so stuck in the "either-or"? It's really irrelevant!
Do you know anybody with a defect who got it from birth? Do you know of anybody with a defect who got it after they were born (from an accident or from abuse)? Of course -- it's both. In either case, we rightly treat the defect -- whether they were born with it or got it from abuse or an "accident."
In the same way, it's so irrelevant whether those suffering same-sex attraction got it from their genes or from their experiences. Neither is an "excuse" for avoiding treating that defect -- a defect that they can get treated. And they should.
The more people argue born or bred, the more angry people get. Just address healing the defect -- something real -- and let go of the hypothetical excuses.
It's only genetic insofar as mental illness is genetic.
