Just to be clear, this is a THEORY. It is not FACT. And based on the same article that YOU cherry-picked, there is no CLEAR agreement that this THEORY answers the question,“What causes some people to be born gay?”
Look at the wording throughout this article. At every point the author indicates that this is speculation and theory—a hypothesis.
For example:
--“Instead, the scientists POSIT…”
--“…brain MAY underlie sexual orientation…”
--“…that steer sexual development in males COULD promote homosexual…”
--“But, she cautioned, so far the THEORY “is not supported by any data.”
--“It’s a little bit vain to think we’ll find the answer to homosexuality as a whole.”
--“The answer, they HYPOTHESIZD, has to do with sensitivity to androgens.”
--“…the researchers HYPOTHESIZED that differences in sensitivity to these signals between male and female fetuses help mediate their sexual differentiation.”
--“But, the researchers SPECULATE perhaps they could be inherited…”
--“It ASSUMES the same mechanism [for development of sexual orientation] in both sexes ... and that androgen levels play an important role in the development of sexual orientation”—NEITHER OF WHICH HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED, he said.”
----------
Finally, there simply is NO indication that the theory represents a defective process. In fact, McCarthy, one of the neuroscientist interviewed in the article, says “Fascinating as it may be to understand the biological basis of sexual orientation, however, not everyone is convinced it’s a necessary line of investigation.“Should we test this? Is it important for us to know?” asked McCarthy.“HOMOSEXUALITY IS NOT A DISEASE, IT’S A PART OF NATURAL HUMAN VARIATION. I’m not sure there’s a good reason to delve this deeply into it. I think we’ve reached the point that we have enough evidence that there’s a biological basis for sexual orientation.”
----------
Kim, I always appreciate when you post these little blurbs. It gives me an opportunity to show what is TRULY KNOWN about the origins of homosexuality—nothing.
VV, VV, VV. I've never disputed it is, at present, a theory. You know that. Keeping in mind, this is the most likely cause, by far, currently on the table!

What YOU have asserted is that even if it bears out, it is not a defect. This article simply spells out what the other references I posted indicated.

"But if epi-marks that direct sexual development ARE NOT ERASED CORRECTLY (emphasis added),"

As to McCarthy, she's covering her ass to avoid a Regnerus gay assault. Hence her defensiveness. Her very study contradicts her defense. Especially when she uses the term 'disease', when she knows it is a epi-genetic mistake.

But hey, you live in denial. Your response once again only exposes the degree once again.

And how about the tough guy came here to wet its drawers and cry about "stalking" and name changing, and what name did it use?

Please allow Christ to deliver you. He knows the way to that secret place of rest. You dont know krapp alone. Listen for him to speak. His voice is beautiful, mysterious and not to be understood by mere mortals. Listen, children, listen. Stop thinking, whining, demanding, contradicting, beseaching, worrying, wishing...you have but to accept. Draw no needless breath of want. Be delivered.

No, she stating facts. Don't worry Greggy, no one expects you to understand what facts are.

She wasn't defensive at all. Given that this "theory" is not supported by any data, that is her obligation to provide all facts, not just the few YOU want to hear.

Um, she hasn't done a study you moron. She's presented a possible theory.

No, she used the term "not a disease". And epigenetic is just one word dolt.

Anyone else see the irony in a fundie defending a scientific theory that even by it's own author's account “is not supported by any data”?? Fundies are the biggest hypocrites on the planet!!!

Yes jackass KiMare, that includes you dear!! Smile!

This is a THEORY!

You cannot pluck a "potential" fact from a theory. Any moron knows that.

But I realize that when I deal with you, I'm not dealing with just any moron.

Homosexuality is not a condition that needs to be studied. It's that simple. We do not negatively impact society. We live happy, productive lives. We're not interested in changing.

The only ones who seem to have a problem with homosexuality are people like YOU! You want to "cure" us.

Your post is just another example of how much you wish homosexuality would just disappear. This is the most disgusting aspect of your character.

I realize that there is an entire industry that has developed to educate people about writing. This industry is aimed at people who will never publish anything serious.

Writing is an art form. You either know how to write or you don't. Maybe you need a minimum amount of technical information, but that's about it.

Do you honestly think a brilliant writer has ever learned how to write by reading an instruction book?

You seem mildly schizophrenic this morning, rambling to and fro. There's an entire Industry that revolves around writing, and the cult of writers, period, pun intended.

Personally, you and your kind goes into the Fantasy category, what with your bullshit Fundamentalist "Diversity" agitprop.
