    Johns Hopkins Research: No Evidence People Are Born Gay or Transgender
    Scholars at Johns Hopkins University released a new report on Monday which argues that there is not sufficient evidence to suggest that lesbian, gay, or transgender people are born with this sexual orientation or gender identity.

    "The idea there that sexual orientation is fluid, that people change as people grow," Lawrence Mayer, a co-author of the report and a scholar-in-residence at Johns Hopkins University's psychiatry department, as well as a professor of statistics and biostatistics at Arizona State University, told The Christian Post. "There are probably some people that identify as hetrosexual [sic] that then later on identified as homosexual, so it goes both ways. The importance there is the fluidity and flexibility that these things change in time."


    See that, liberals. It's not an inborn trait, (not like your total lack of brains). There is NO EVIDENCE of a homosexual gene.

    The study breaks down in three parts: First, Mayer and McHugh examined whether homosexuality is an inherited trait, and concluded that people are not simply "born that way." Second, they looked at the causes of the poor mental health associated with gay and transgender people, concluding that social stress does not explain all of it. Finally, they studied transgenderism, concluding that it is not innate and that transgender "treatments" are associated with negative outcomes.

    This is so funny. I can just see liberals reading this and banging their melon heads against the wall.

    There is research that shows all sorts of things. This certainly isn’t proof of anything by any means.

    I certainly don’t choose to be straight. I couldn’t be gay, no matter how much I wanted to be. It is what it is.

    If you believe it’s a choice to be gay (assuming you are straight), you would have the ability to choose to be sexually attracted to men (assuming you’re a male)?

    I'm not sure I agree with the findings. When I was 12-years-old, there was a boy in my neighborhood who was very efiminate. He hung around the girls and played the same games they play and pretty much acted like a girl. He walked in an exaggerated manner and had very efiminate body movements. We called him a sissy because, at that time, we didn't know what a homosexual was.
    I have no doubt now that the kid was gay. And I don't think he just sat down one day and decided that he wanted to be gay. I think he was born that way. I've seen other young kids who demonstrated obvious homosexual behavior, kids for whom I dont know for sure if it was a personal choice or not.
    I think many, perhaps most, people who are gay, choose to be that way but I can't say that all of them are like that. Either way it is still something they have to bear and, like adultery, lying, cheating, stealing, or any other offense against God or their fellow man, it is a sin and something they have to be delivered from.

    An inclination toward emotional or physical attraction to one's own gender almost certainly has a genetic component. To engage in a homosexual relationship or sex act is a choice.
    The same for gender dysphoria.

    Some people have addictive personalities. Some people have violent tendencies. Etc.
    Nature plays a part. Nurture plays a part.
    Ultimately, though, the choice is the individual's.
    A society is under no obligation to condone a personal choice.

    The earlier theories about homosexuality (one source of those theories being "Men And Marriage" by George Gilder) claims a home environment of a weak or absentee father and a dominating mother creates homosexuals. The "home environment theory" has been around a lot longer than the "Bruce was born with it" notion.

    Again, this thread is NOT about whether someone chooses activity that most humans would find repulsive. This is about it NOT being an inborn trait.

    I've always said that liberalism is a mental disorder. And so far, there has been zero evidence to the contrary.

    The article says that is not the case. I'm waiting for SOME scientist to say that there IS a homosexual gene. That will be the funniest outcome in the world because pretty much EVER homosexual out there will immediately turn into a PRO-LIFER.

    To engage in a homosexual relationship or sex act is a choice.
    The same for gender dysphoria.


    The article doesn't address that. One liberal here has tried to change the subject by demanding an answer to the question of homosexuality being a choice. I deliberately didn't go there, just to fck with his pea brain. But I'm pretty open to the idea that those conditions are what they were originally diagnosed as: Mental illness.

    Some people have addictive personalities. Some people have violent tendencies. Etc.
    Nature plays a part. Nurture plays a part.
    Ultimately, though, the choice is the individual's.
    A society is under no obligation to condone a personal choice.

    I agree.

    History is replete with documented episodes of the climate changing. But only a total moron thinks human activity has anything to do with it.

    Why are you changing the subject, *edited*? Are your feelings hurt because one of your *edited* myths has just been exploded by Johns Hopkins? Nobody mentioned a medical test to identify sexual orientation. That was never brought up in the *edited* article and no one else has mentioned it.

    And why are you such a *edited* about a straight pride parade? *Edited*

    This poses a significant riddle...

    How is one born with an innate characteristic such as gay or straight or etc where the argument is that the unborn is not a human being inside the womb?

    It's just a bunch of cells I thought...how is this possible...

    But there are no conclusions, correct?

    Are you going to answer my question? If people choose to be gay, then are you choosing to be straight? I know I’m certainly not, I’m straight and always have been. I couldn’t choose to be anything else, it’s strong. I’m interested to hear your take.
