Is Sexual Orientation Innate?

Nov 9, 2012 Read more: www.huffingtonpost.com 55

A central tenet of modern neuroscience is that for every difference in behavior, whether between groups of people or within an individual person over time, there must be some corresponding differences in the structure or function of the brain.

Jerry isn't responsible for his actions.
Even though he was an adult in his 30 40s 50s having homosexual relations with little boys, Jerry was just born gay.
Not responsible.

So sad for Jerry that President Obama won another term.
Now Jerry has to wait 4 more long years until he gets his presidential pardon.

Homosexual pedophiles are proving they were born that way and can't be held accountable.
The severity of punishment for their crimes is prima facie evidence that adult homosexuals like Jerry Sandusky are the actual victims in these cases.
These homosexual child molesters don't have any choices or control over their behaviors because they were born that way.
Holding homosexual child molesters to account for touching kids is a hate crime, right?

Does your warped reasoning apply to str8 molesters too, who by the way overpopulate per capita the statistics more than the gay ones?

Your voice becomes more irrelevant as time passes.

Jerry wasn't born gay, he was born a pedophile and being an adult he should have sought out treatment to control his urges for innocent children which are criminal.

Homosexuals however have no reason to seek treatment or change behavior because they are involved with consenting adults.

Why are you more worried about criminals who harm children of their same gender, than criminals that harm children of the opposite gender?

Are't the all just as evil?

Your agenda is showing.

And it's not rational, is it? Where YOU harmed at some point by someone of your same gender? That seems the most likely scenario for what broke you.

In all truth - seek some help.

You aren't hurting a single gay person with endlessly this stuff, since it doesn't apply to us, but it is a sign that you are hurting yourself, every time you post.

Do you really want to keep living this way?

Only in your mind.

Even a pedophile who is only attracted to children, can make the choice not to harm them.

Harm.

Do you understand what that means?

When straight adults form sexual relationships with other straight adults, there is no inherent harm in it. When gay adults form sexual relationships with other gay adults, there is no inherent harm in it.

When a pedophile tried to form a sexual union with any child, the harm is inherent to that child.

Do you understand now? I know you have difficulty understanding the difference between adult and children, but most other people do not. Your inability to grasp this simple concept makes me uneasy that you might be untrustworthy around kids.

As I've said before - you really need to seek treatment.

There are some things in that article that I didn't know at all. They're very interesting.

Also, someone in the comments of the article made a point about how religious types use choice as an excuse to discriminate. Even though it hasn't been proven a choice and is unlikely, whereas religious beliefs are a choice, that is a fact.

FTA: "Homosexual males have penises that are larger, on average, than those of heterosexual males."

Now I know why so many "straight" men hate us; its' Penis Envy. Who would have thought? Are you reading this, Trolls?

I have read that even as late as the 20th century in the U.S., some schoolchildren had their left arms tied behind their backs because being left-handed was considered at the time to be immoral and\or "not normal behaviour".

btw, the word "sinister" is Latin for "left-handed". In ancinet latin, it simply meant the fact that a person was left-handed, not evil, as the word means today in modern English.

Religions have always advocated discriminating against minorities.
It's disgusting.

Though don't get me wrong, many religious individuals are loving and caring people. My above statement is directed at those who have, throughout centuries, abused religion, using it to get as much power as they can. I am also directing the statement at those who dislike someone or something, then try to use their religion as an excuse to hate and discriminate against those things.
