Skip to comments.Not born this way: The facts, plus help available
Posted on 06/05/2011 7:48:09 AM PDT by scripter
Without any reputable evidence, the entertainment culture, uneducated media, and sexual activists have seduced today's teenagers, in particular, to believe that people are born homosexual.
However, science has found no biological basis for homosexuality, bisexuality, or transsexuality.
Study after study has found the LGBT lifestyle to be unhealthy, with the highest rate of sexually-transmitted diseases, and higher cancer rates and earlier deaths.
While all people are worthy and valuable, the fact is people are not "born this way," as a popular song insists.

It would also be equally foolish to close the door and say that its simply down to biological factors, theres no other factors or influences that impact on a persons sexual orientation.

Now we know why the DOD has to cut healthcare costs to vet and dependents. They will see sky rocketing cost from the infux of homosexuals.
This article contains rationale facts, which will immediately cause the homo-ingratiated to screech and flee in horror. So it will do little good.
A small percentage of homosexuals are biologically gay due to hormonal imbalances in the womb. Rats can be made homosexual by putting the mother in extreme stress during pregnancy, for instance.
Imprinted homosexuals are those whose first sexual experiences were homosexual. The vast majority of homosexuals are this way.
Many of the above links could easily be their own thread. This should be a great reference article.
As someone who has followed the science on this subject since 1991: If you could find some science or any credible scientist to support your position I’m more than interested.
If they truly believed that they were born that way, they wouldn’t be in schools trying to convert children.
I've heard that quite a few times but have never seen any science to support it. That is, I haven't read any study that hormonal imbalances are causal to same-sex attraction.
One fact: homosexuals cannot procreate. This means, if it is a genetic trait, it will have faded away into nonexistence... if you believe in natural selection which most Liberal/progressives do.
From a scientific perspective, it could be recessive. Still, I haven't read any credible studies that it is.
"Abstract: Male rats were exposed to prenatal (i.e. before they were born) or postnatal (after they were born) stress, or both. The prenatally stressed males showed low levels of male copulatory behavior and high rates of female lordotic responding. Postnatal stress had no effect. The modifications are attributed to stress-mediated alterations in the ratio of adrenal to gonadal androgens during critical stages of sexual differentiation. Specifically, it appears that stress causes an increase in the weak adrenal androgen, androstendione, from the maternal fetal adrenal cortices, or both, and a concurrent decrease in the potent gonadal androgen, testosterone."
No doubt, exposure to it will >create< more homosexuals or bisexuals.
It is not unlike an addiction. Starts out small and ends up ruling a person’s life... looking for that next level of thrill.
There may be other driving factors, but this one of the causes.
There is no scientist or doctor who could predict or announce at birth the future sexual behavior of any newborn child.
The same goes with any social behavior.
Through the years I have seen studies that have claimed to find the alcoholic gene, studies that claim to find behavioral traits among children that may mean that they could become a serial killer, etc....
None of these studies though find any definitive test for predicting the future social behavior of any new born child or even older child or even adult.
Thus any support of giving corrupt or criminal behavior rights as if they were innate behavioral traits is an extremely dangerous precedent.
Gays cannot procreate.
Agreed about the credible studies — interesting that there hasn't been a study. Maybe because it isn't PC.
As for the males, there are gay males who look and act very macho.
Thanks. I’ll take a look.
Actually, homosexuals can procreate if they are not exclusively homo in their behavior. Think of certain Congresscritters who were “happily married” with multiple children before they were caught one night going the other way.
