Many bigots know gays don't choose it. Bigots just hate because they love to hate.

Sounds like they have simply determined another effect of homosexuality, rather than a cause.

As the author of the paper to which you are referring I want to make it clear that one of my goals is to help bigots. People fear what they do not understand, and when they fear, they become unstable and bigoted. So, IMO the first step in bringing an end to the war against homosexuality to understand the factors that contribute to human sexuality. It appears to me that you have not read the paper that explains my findings or you would have had different comments. I hope that you will take the time read the information I have compiled so that you can share your understanding and we can reduce the ignorance surrounding this subject, and through education reduce the violence—physical, mental and spiritual—that is directed towards homosexuals.

You clearly did not read my paper. Please, for all of those out there who are suffering because of the ignorance and fear surrounding this subject, find the time to read my research and pass it on. It is grounded in science and reason, informed by empirical evidence and spiritual observation, and is logical. What I have done is brought a wide range of information together and integrated it in such a way that new insights have been revealed. I don't know why it has taken so long for this to be discovered, other than almost everyone seeking an answer is focused entirely on science and physical causes, and sex begins in the mind, fed by the brain.

What you say corresponds more or less with the research I have found, other than I think it is fair to say that the sex of a baby is determined before one can see the sexual organs. My contribution is in explaining the mental mechanism that creates same-sex attraction, based on the physical events that you describe. Once again, I am seeing people focused on physical events rather than on the mind. This is the reason people are having so much trouble understanding the nature of sexuality.

Why don't we start out with you disclosing your own sexual orientation, because if you are gay, which I highly suspect, you could not possibly remain unbiased in your findings.
Your vernacular, which includes words and expressions such as; "bigots", "unstable", "war against homosexuality", "ignorance", etc., is not the vernacular of a professional, unbiased researcher, and highly suggests that you are gay. A research paper about homosexuality authored by a homosexual carries no weight.

You even contradict yourself. You speak of "empirical evidence", which suggests experimentation and observation, then you admit that "What I have done is brought a wide range of information together and integrated it in such a way that new insights have been revealed".
So you have collated existing data and "integrated it in such a way...". Integrated in what way? A way that leads to your predetermined findings?
I see that your books have won several awards, but until your papers are endorsed by an authoratative organization such as the APA, your findings carry no more weight than a personal opinion.

The APA long ago ceased being an organization devoted to pursuing scientific truth, wherever it may lead. Any 'authority' held by the APA is merely political, or more precisely, using the veneer of 'scientific' studies to promote the political agenda of homosexuals. The APA has been working for quite some time, since at least the mid-90s, to excuse, normalize, and begin advocating for the legalization of pedophilia and child molestation.
Using the same methodology as was done for the political benefit of the homosexuals.

Yes, I'm aware and have been for quite some time now all the political controversies surrounding this 'science'.
And then the documents.
The pedowing of the APA is trying to double-down on government money because they are in not only the ideological, but the political ascendancy under DOE policies.
dsm5 is a trial balloon subject to many political considerations.
It's a work of fiction/faith and earmarks.

I'm straight. But even if I were gay, I would do my best to avoid bias. My interest is the truth, wherever it takes me.
Your statement about my vernacular makes no sense as I have only used the vernacular you site in answering questions that use those words—I refer back to the words used in the comment. I don't use them in my paper.
And as for contradicting myself, I fail to understand your response. Part of the information I brought together was empirical evidence. Is that not simple and clear? I describe my process in terms of a jigsaw puzzle. When you have all of the horizontal words across they serve as a guide to the verticle words. I follow a somewhat similar process with ideas instead of words, but in a 3-D setting rather than 2-D. I don't know if that makes sense or not, but the process is not easy to describe. It's based on my innate brain structure, which, in Meyers-Briggs classifies me as an INTP.
PS. Last week the book won another first place national award, as it should, since my work is based on the hard work and intelligence of others, most of whom have excellent credentials.

My research suggests that bigotry and hatred are the result of left-brain dominance that ignores the wisdom of the right brain. The left brain is energized by fear. The two brains hemispheres are unique and intended to work together. To get to peace and truth we need to use the whole brain.
As for christianity, there are two types of Christians, those that actually follow the teachings of Jesus and therefore see us all as equal, and those whose beliefs include homophobic Old Testament scriptures and a couple of homophobic New Testaments scriptures that have nothing to do with the teachings of Jesus. Jesus said absolutely nothing that would cause anyone discriminate against gays.

You're an idiot, hun.

For starters, they are backed by the American Psychiatric Association, Mental Health America, the American Academy for Pediatrics, and the World Health Organization.

Second, the Rind study, which I assume you're referring to, was not intended to advocate child sexual abuse. The APA released a press statement about it, labeling CSA morally wrong and harmful in the vast majority of cases. The Rind study's findings were this: Child sexual abuse happens. Some people get over it better than others, depending on the circumstances.

And thirdly, the removal of homosexuality from the DSM was a COMPLETELY different process than the Rind study. It was removed by a majority ballot of the scientists of the APA by 58%. It is a decision that was backed by the other APA, MHA, and the WHO.

I agree with your conclusion that the poster is not the person he/she claims to be. But that aside, I feel I must take issue with the portion of your post that I have brought forward. By the logic you show here, I must assume that you would question the authority of a heterosexual to do a research paper on heterosexuals. That is the only reasonable assumption to be made by your statement.
