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.

Stories from former homosexuals
» Stephen Bennett's story
How about they stop harrassing and mistreating the rest of society and keep their perversions behind closed doors where they belong.
Believe me, this was a top concern, again all the way back to the 1960s.
Farmers regularly use plant estrogen to give them better yields of their crops. But plant estrogen is very similar to human estrogen, and also acts as a testosterone blocker. Likewise there are other, industrial synthetic chemicals that also block testosterone. They were scared that there was soon to be a huge epidemic of feminized, homosexual males.
But it didn’t happen. While there has been some increase in the number of more androgynous males, the rates of homosexuality are about unchanged.
Relatively vast amounts of hormone supplements are dumped into our sewers, enough to clearly affect some populations of freshwater fish, but somehow we have either evaded it or our bodies are able to overcome it.
The biggest human effect seems to be in an increased number of children who need gender reassignment. Even Saudi Arabia recognizes such situations and permits reassignment.
So, for example, a boy “knows” he is a girl in a boy’s body. But even after reassignment surgery, he, now a she, is still sexually attracted to girls. This ends up with the unenviable situation of homosexuality that really isn’t.
Exactly. Something is affecting our humble bodies in a bad way. And our reproductive organs and systems are extra susceptible to whatever chemical onslaught is going on. The most helpless we are is as a rapidly developing fetus.
I am so sorry about your pet! Aw. We switched away from dry kibbles back then and now feed only mostly organic and non big cheap commercial brands. It’s scary.
Truthful facts about homosexuals (or any other “protected” class, come to think of it) are categorized as hate speech.
Thanks for all the info. on this sexual disorder. I’m bookmarking it because I know I’ll be referring to it again.
If something going wrong in the uterus is causing homosexuality, would the homosexuals want it fixed?
I agree with your statement. There ARE some people that ARE born this way. I know two of them. One is a cousin, the other a kid from my neighborhood that I grew up with. In both cases they were obviously different from the time we were four or five years old.
In the case of my cousin, his uncle was a great guy, an outdoors man, and the fellow who taught most of us to hunt and shoot. My cousins younger brother fits the apt description of “poon hound.” It's a complete mystery why my other cousin is the way he is, but he is. And it was obvious he was “different” from the time we were four or five years old! There's some mystery there that hasn't been figure out yet.
And if they quietly live their lives they probably won't be. The "love that dare not speak its name" has become the love that won't shut the heck up.
A lip smacking invitation or a hand groping my crotch will get a response, just not the one they are hoping for.
I'm just as God made me, sir.
No, they'd want it increased (more fresh meat!).
“...Lots of kids are hitting puberty earlier now then they used to. Lots of factors involved with that I’m sure. But I agree something is wrong. Maybe lack of exercise, hormones in the water supply, sexual exposure at a younger age via the media, ... perhaps all of these factors. And yes, Autism and autism spectrum disorder have significantly increased. They’ve ruled out vaccines as a cause, but something is going on...”
My personal theory (with nothing to back it up, just a gut feeling) is the amount of hormones fed to cattle, chickens, etc. I have a hunch these are in our food chain, causing early onset puberty, among other effects.
Recently, an 8 y/o girl presented in our ER with asthma. Though only 8, she had nearly fully developed breasts. Our ER doctor (a woman) was stunned. The staff had an interesting discussion. Seems we are seeing more and more of these changes in our youth. Something is definitely happening to our kids.
Joseph Nicolosi, a prominent psychologist, has studied the causes of homosexuality in depth for many years and believes it is caused primarily by the failure of the child to bond to its same-sex parent and thus, fully developed its psychological identity as a male. There are a number of other psychologists and psychiatrists who support this view and who also believe some homosexuals can overtime this gender identity problem, especially the sooner they enter therapy.
I’ve bookmarked it and later when I have time will pore over it.
Well, I’m gay (though I appreciate the warning, Yaelle). I joined FR years ago because I though my perspective might add a valued perspective to discussions of this topic. I quickly learned that I was mistaken, and I no longer post here because any opinion I might express on this subject of obvious interest to me would result in a quick zot.
But since you asked, I (a man) can report that, though I appreciate the beauty of women, I have never been sexually attracted to them. I was aware — long before puberty — that I preferred the looks of a handsome man to those of an attractive woman. I am not, to my knowledge, recognizably effeminate. I have always enjoyed a good and close relationship to both my parents — neither distant nor overbearing. I have never been molested, nor was I ever “recrutited.” I have been happily (and legally) married to a man for many years. So there’s your anecdotal evidence, which you may take or leave.
I agree. And the gay agenda, pushing things into the faces of others, pushing school curricula, is all wrong. Bullying, for instance, should not be permitted no matter what the reason for the bullying.
I think kids who seem gender-different should be treated as fairly and neither they nor their parents should be seen to be "at fault" as kids and parents dealing with ANY disability. Autism is now known NOT to be the mom's fault. Neither is having a child who prefers toys and colors for the opposite sex. That's just an innocent child and should not be hit over the head morally because of what they like to do. (And I know some parents are freakin' nuts like the ones who won't tell anyone what gender their child is - stupid. But parents have to be free to parent as they wish unless it breaks laws -- we want to parent OUR way so liberal weenies should be allowed to parent their way too.)
Great post. The problem is so many don’t understand what it means and trying to make it more simple usually results in further misunderstandings. Many just can’t move past their bias.
