If they are not born with these desires then how do their (un-natural) desires acquired in their life become their new (legitimate) constitutional rights that redefine centuries old traditional marriage regardless of voters opposition?
This is an argument I pose at young people,
I dont tell them its Biblical sinning because they will naturally just blow that off. For most of them Obama's word trumps the Bible's word.
it is an arrested development.
as the child developes his her identity, it graduates to discovering others like him/her. the opposite sex is the “not me”. girls are icky and boys are yucky and the like.
at some point there is a reinforcment of that behavior to the extreme. See the work of “sissy boy syndrome” and parental maunchausen (sp?) syndrome disorders.
instead of graduating to the opposite sex being attractive. Grown is stunted into a “me me me” loop. Homosexuals end up trying to mate with the person in the mirror.
I think they exist but gay genes or gay susceptibility genes are entirely irrelevant. I never hear anyone make this point, rather conservatives merely deny the “born this way” argument. This leads to unproductive quibbling about genetic science and counter attacks about the scientific “ignorance” of conservatives.
Genes or not, it doesn’t matter. There are also down syndrome and schizophrenia causing genes!!!! There are all kinds of bad genes that cause congenital PROBLEMS.
Retards (sorry slur, I’m a jerk, I was born this way) are born that way. Few would suggest that’s not a major problem for them and their families.
But serious medical science gave up on considering homosexuality to be a mental illness decades ago. Whether it’s genetic or not, that’s what it is.
Nowadays “sexual preference” is equated to taste in ice cream flavors not something that’s you know NOT QUITE RIGHT, and I am Hitler for suggesting otherwise. Mind you I advocate absolutely NO forced treatment what so ever but still, I am Hitler. I slur gays by suggesting they are not quite right in the head. I am “full of hate” for having this reasoned scientific opinion. I best keep it to myself.
Part of the problem is the stigma attached to mental illness in general. People get offended if you call them “crazy”.
I wonder how many homosexuals lose much of their attraction to the same sex as they get older? I have wondered if a percentage of people grow out of homosexual attraction.
