I believe sexual orientation is all genes and DNA. No choice.

I'm married 20 years with 2 kids and still notice WOMEN, not MEN.(I'm a guy).

Never had urges for other men. I really could never imagine a gay encounter with another male, I don't think men (or women) can be "recruited".

I think the stats are about 17% of men are gay, and slightly higher for females. However I believe women have a high incidence of bi-sexuality.

It is not trained behavior. It's how you were born.

I also believe that the hatred toward homosexuals stems from the argument that if everybody was gay, the human race would die off.

--But that's impossible, because not everybody is gay or ever will be gay.

I agree genetics. Trnsgendered noticed girls also, from an early age, in 1st grade. I am also a blue-eyed boi. I have known since the beginning. Just like some knew that they were straight, from the beginning.

Actually I do: to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own : use (another's production) without crediting the source (thank you, Merriam-Webster). You used someone else's production (JesusIsSavior) without crediting them as your source. Simply because they had the common sense to cite their dubious sources does not excuse you from citing your's.

I don’t know what the percentages are but I believe it's both DNA and Choice. I'm not pretending to know what triggers gay or not. But i have friends that are gay by choice and admit it. And friends that are and you can tell by DNA. I think those that refuse to believe that you can be gay other then born that way are the ones that create all frenzy..

Do what to kids? Paint their feet like I do with my baby sis? No, normal rational people accept that their are also normal and rational people to be found in the GLBT community.

Homosexuality is NOT a normal natural occurrence. It is perverse and deviant behavior. It is extremely rare in nature and a chosen behavior among humans. The fact that perverse deviants are "coming out of the closet" and trying to force the majority of us to "deal with it" does not make it any less perverse, deviant or wrong. God calls it an abomination. He made them male and female for a reason. Pray for the deviants.

If there exists "homosexual behavior" and causes, then there must also exist "heterosexual behavior" and causes. Now it seems to me, all things being equal, that a great many more men would "choose" to be gay and have access to sex all the time is this premise were valid. Too bad for them, sexuality is a state of being, not a behavior.

Perhaps you may get a different idea if you look at something other than sexuality. For instance, did you know that the most genetic diversity exists in Africa. What this means is that human life originated on the continent of Africa. Now one must ask, why is it that there exist so many races? The answer is in adaptive evolution where opportunistic characteristics took precedence. The only conclusion possible is that diversity is the rule rather than the exception. The same is also true of sexual diversity.

Boy - where has this blog been for the last two years.
It doesn't matter how we become gay, born, genes, environment, etc. It is not a choice. You'd have to be an idiot to think so.

__________
Romans 1
God's Wrath Against Mankind
18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness,
19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.
20For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.
25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.
27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
Stuff it. I don't give a rat's royal ass what Paul had to say, he wasn't even speaking of homosexuality, but was instead speaking of pagan rituals involving sex, and I'm Jewish, so the New Testament is about as relevant to my life as Harry Potter. Neither your bible nor mine has any place in a discussion of civil rights in the United States. Stuff it.

Lots of things happen "in nature" but that doesn't make it right for intelligent, superior humans to do. Say for instance..Most animals, after taking a dump, commence to lick their behinds to clean themselves. If a human does this, we ALL think they are crazy and "unnatural". But his defense is that it's found in nature, over a thousand species do it, so it's completely natural....So your logic doesn't stick. Just because simple unintelligent creatures do things, doesn't mean it's right or acceptable to the human race. We actually have brains to determine what we shouldn't be doing.
You're missing the point, dear. Whether or not it's a good thing is not the question, just whether it is natural or not. To say "homosexuality is unnatural" is a patent falsehood, simply because it meets the definition of natural. It occurs in nature, naturally.
