Please interpret. Does this mean that homosexuality is not being passed down to the offspring? Or only 30% chance of homosexual tendencies in the offspring? Then how could someone be born with homosexual tendencies? Is homosexuality learned behavior? Is something in the environment causing homosexual tendencies? Too much estrogen in the environment? Hmmm.. This finding leaves a lot of questions.

30% to 40% genetics, 60% to 70% your 'environment.' I can buy that.
None of it means it isn't a defect.

If we can send a man to the Moon, why can't we find a cure for homosexuality?

Homosexuality can't be "cured" because it isn't a disease.....it's a sexual orientation. That makes about as much sense as saying heterosexuality could be cured.

When a man sticks his dick in another man's ass, it's a disease.

Why are you fantasizing about certain sex acts, anyway? No one was talking about graphic sex but you.

Is this a common problem with you? You can't even hear the word "gay" without unwanted sexual images taking over your mind?

It's quite the Topix phenomenon that straight guys constantly post about oral/anal gay sex. Shouldn't they be on straight threads sharing sex stories? And then they whine/bitch because someone accuses them of being overly gay curious. So obvious.

Not to them. That's what's frightening.

But Wondering and Rev Alan are just the same person, at this point.

Hey cretin, even if sexual orientation were a birth defect it would be covered by the Americans With Disabilities Act.

Either way, you don't get to discriminate. You can hate and then go to hell, by your own beliefs, but you can't discriminate. You'll be dead in a couple of years, anyway.
