I was wondering what people think, is it by choice or is it natural. If I were to look from a religious point of view it would be very contradictory if it were a gene as God is against it and therefor they say it's choice. Although I've heard and I think scientists and other people believe it's to do with your genetics.

Opinions please~~

It's an age old question.

Does it really matter? If it matters to some people - should it matter?

People should be able to live their own lives as long as they are hindering no one else in living theirs.

I do not know if you are male or female. I do not know if you have sex with males or females. It does not matter to me one way or the other.

I always wonder why it matters so much to some people.

Quite simple to answer.

If homosexuals are unable to procreate naturally, genetic inheritance is ruled out.

Thus we must conclude that homosexuality is a chosen behavior.

No doubt.
I think Freud would say homosexuals haven't evolved past the masterbatory stage, so they engage in mutual masterbation.
THAT IS a behavioral disorder.

Right 1+1=2
Gay +gay=0
Genetics doesn't explain gay sex in jail which isn't always rape
R u saying gays commit more crime

And the Ancient Greek/roman thing doesn't work either because
Only older men could penetrate the younger and the other way was considered way wrong.
Or a owner could bang a slave. Both of which r rape!

Soldiers too follow into the prison situation

So gay is learned or a behavior abnormality
Maybe the youngest boy of a group in a family seeks hiS mothers attention in the wrong way. Becoming feminine.
That's why the people teaching r children should all be straight as to prohibit the proliferation of this disorder

Sure many heterosexuals masturbate.....but usually alone.

Once I heard somebody call masturbation self-abuse?
So figure if somebody buys themself a nice dinner and a couple of drinks before masturbating, it's no longer abuse but a cheap solo-date.
Right?

Most scientists view homosexuality as a naturally reoccurring trait in the species, that is either set by birth, or shortly thereafter and the result of, yet not fully understood, combinations of genetics and biology. There is no evidence which supports any other possible causality.

Your expertise, in this area, would be what exactly?

There also no plausible evidence to support those so-called scientific claims.
According to whom? You? That would bring me back to the question of your expertise.

Look into deeply it is all speculation on their part.
Sweetie, the reason I said what I did is because I have looked into this deeply, I've read the research. Have you?

They are same ones who tout the idea of transgenderism even though the phenomena has never been observed outside of our species.
I'll bet that you didn't know that schools of clown fish are led by a dominant female and when that female dies, if there isn't another female able to take her place, a male will take over the school and become female. It's called sequential hermaphrodism in animals and there are actually a number of species where sex changes happen for a variety of reasons, all quite natural. Just so you know, those studying transgenderism, not the same folk who are studying the causality of homosexuality.
It is a symptom wrote:
They also point to sexual acts of other species involving the same sex as proof that homosexuality is a natural phenomena.
Yes they have, I've read that everything from same sex sexual acts as a show of dominance, to sex play, to it being a part of the social order, to same sex mated pairs who take part in the survival of the species has been seen in more than 1000 species other than our own.
It is a symptom wrote:
The problem with that logic is the fact that in a natural setting it is not sex out of attraction or choice.
Your expertise in this area is?

The receiving animal of any species is never a willing participant.
You really are just talking out of your *** at the moment pudding, you really should stop before you really embarrass yourself. In species where such acts are only used in displays of dominance, they are unlikely to be appreciated, but that is far from the only use that nature has found for them. Other species engage in same sex sexual play because they seem to enjoy it, others have been seen to produces same sex pairs and even families, still others produce members that from all observable behavior that are exclusively same sex attracted. There really is a heck of a lot of information available on the subject, too bad you clearly haven't read any of it.
It is a symptom wrote:
The whole act is not sexual it is violent domination in order to establish the superiority of one over the other. There by giving one more power in choice in selection of food,females,everything.
See above, do a little research and know that you really don't know what you think you are talking about.

There is no evolutionary advantage to homosexuality it is a counter to the good of a species.
Answer: False. In human beings, homosexuality in males has been shown to stem from the need of our species for additional adults to help care for and raise offspring of others in our tribe or clan. Our life expectancy used to be decades shorter than it is today and that resulted in a constant supply of offspring who would lose one or more of their parents before they could survive on their own. Nature steps in with a supply of adult males, not instinctually dedicated to their own reproduction, but there to help with the surplus. Homosexuality gives them something fun to do while here, which doesn't add to the surpluses. Male homosexuality has been shown to run in families, along maternal lines and where it does, the females in the line will, on average, have more offspring than those in lines that don't. So it accounts for it being a sexually antagonistic trait. There's a lot that has been written about evolution and homosexuality, you should look it up.

These people who teach you this misinformation are the ones who also try to hide and deny the link between various forms of abuse (emotional,physical,mental,and sexual) that have clear and proven links between them and homosexuality.
"Clear and proven", Gracie? By whom? When? Are you going to bother to provide any sort of proof for your proof, or am I supposed to accept this as a given? Hon, you're putting the cart before the horse. The homosexuality was there first, the abuse is what they got for it. You do realize that many people suffer from emotional, physical, mental and/or sexual abuse and who aren't the least bit homosexual in thought or act, don't you? Doesn't work nearly as good as you seem to believe, sweetie.

It is all just cover up ploys by P.C. police in the name of inclusion. The facts are there and it is undeniable.
The one statement you did get right was that the facts are there and they are undeniable, too bad you don't seem to know very many of them. We've always been included dear, because we've always been here, your problems with that, clearly your own.
