I think it's on a 'sex-linked' gene!
This is a great article considering the source. Yet people still try to deny. It is quite sad.
What some people try to imply is the predisposition causes same-sex attraction.
Yeah they do, but what attraction is etched at birth/conception? NONE. Attraction is learned. People DEVELOP these odd fetishes based on experience and environment, to state otherwise is to ignore your own past.
Sigh, indeed... some people will never learn.
You can't prove that you are a homosexual beyond stating such. Until you engage in the act
I stated the above because the only "proof" you have of being gay is doing sexually gay things. When a fella kisses on another fella, we take him at his word that he is gay. However, that same fella realizes he has been living a dangerous life and wants to change HIS actions and then does and claims he is ex-gay(hetero; as all of humanity is) he is not given the same benefit of belief. It is a hypocritical double standard.
Most people know before they engage in sexual behavior whether they are gay or straight. Everyone is a heterosexual, we were designed to be such. There is only one choice until someone, through a series of events, creates the second choice.
It is very sad, I can think back when I was a kid and remember what was happening. Now as I'm older I treat kids as individuals, just cause he is a little effeminate does not make him gay. It is more likely that if his is razzed his whole life about being gay that some person who has already given in to that lifestyle will convince him he is. And again, there are spiritual forces that are attacking people all the time trying to convince them to turn from God. God made that kid that way and his soft spoken nature suits him just fine and is exactly what God intended.
