I can't comment on the particular study being debated, but I think that conservatives (like me) may be begging the question when we argue strenuously against a biological basis for homosexuality. We should concede there may be -- may be, not is - a biological basis for homosexuality, and then we should add, "So what?" There may be a genetic basis for alcoholism, but no (sane) person is arguing that alcoholics should be allowed to show up at work drunk. My personal opinion is that homosexuality is like obesity: there may be a biological predisposition (weak or strong), that was caused by a genetic abnormality or a hormonal surge that went awry in the womb; and then environmental factors may play a part, too. In any case, one may think homosexuality is 100% biological, 100% environmental, or some combo of both, yet still maintain that sexual behavior is verboten.

Think about it for a second: if there were any sort of a biological basis for being gay, the idiots would not be prosyletizing and trying to make converts in the public schools, would they?

What??? You mean there is no biological source for homosexuality??

Darn, I was ready to contribute to the "find a medical cure foundation," as I am sure was everyone else who has had enough of the constant carping from the queers.

I guess that leaves the sole conclusion to be that homosexuals engage is such activity only because they want to. That means they are entitled to the same rights as prostitutes, bigamists, etc.

Right. When nothing else makes sense, blame it on the woman. Just like my first husband - blamed ME for not giving him a son.

BTW, I wonder if this theory holds water for gay women?
And what about bi-sexuals? and "transgendered" individuals?

And, w h o c a r e s?

Psychiatry is a complete load of krap so a psychiatrist critiquing a study on homosexuals is a double load of doo doo.

Maybe he should learn what ethical testing of psychiatric meds consists of and fix the peer reviews within his own scope of practice before spewing goo.

This is just one theory for homosexuality...

NEA Delegates Endorse Same-Sex "Marriage"

The National Education Association (NEA) has voted overwhelmingly to endorse same-sex "marriages." The action goes beyond "tolerance" to "acceptance" of the homosexual lifestyle as "normal" and "beautiful."

Critics of the measure have suggested that the union is venturing far afield from the objectives of educating the young and obtaining better pay and working conditions for teachers. "This whole issue is controversial and tangential to our goals," said Norman Person, an NEA member from California. "I don't see how it helps kids or teachers."

Franklin Butz, a gay member from New Jersey had the opposite view. "Educating the young about alternative lifestyles is central to our mission," said Butz. "Acceptance of alternative ways of living is more important than the mastery of mundane topics like math or reading. After all, computers can do our math. Television can supplant reading. But these devices can't replace the feelings we need to instill in our students."

Cynics assert that the foray into controversial political issues is aimed at diverting attention from poor test scores among public school students. "The endorsement of non-academic causes is symptomatic of the rot that pervades the NEA," said a disgruntled NEA member who asked to remain nameless. "I suppose if we get people riled over these issues they'll forget about the more fundamental failures of the system."

The NEA leadership's push for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender issues as a requirement for teacher credentialing has been impeded by the low reading comprehension of so many NEA members. It is a delicate matter since it is feared that the normal procedure of converting the message into pictographs might be too pornographic in this particular case.

I believe most, not all but most homosexuals are biologically caused. Especially men.

I don't believe that precludes certain restrictions on their behavior, legal issues.

Waiting (but not holding my breath) for this to show up tonight (or any other night) in MSM.

Actually, there may be a biological basis for all manner of perverted and criminal behavior. Nevertheless, this doesn't make it normal, desirable, or acceptable. Pedophiles, necrophiles, beastophiles, rapists, and pederasts can all make the same claim but, regardless, that is not an excuse to claim acceptability.

I tend to think most homosexuals are born that way. Most not all. The kids I knew that turned out to be gay as adults were pretty gay as kids. At least the men were.
