"Homosexuals are born gay."
I hate to be the burster of bubbles, but research has suggested that Mendelian inheritance has not occurred in a family yet. Researchers who claim that you can be born gay also realize that environmental factors play a large role in determining homosexuality. Says researcher Dean Hamer of his findings: "We assumed the environment also played a role in sexual orientation, as it does in most, if not all behaviors..." (Hamer and Copeland)
Take a look at this major "twins study". Conducted by J.M Bailey and Richard Pillard, the study found that among a group of twins, 52% were found to be homosexual. In order for the genetic argument to work, 100% must be homosexual.
Also, look at transgender people. They are claiming that they were born transgender! If that isn't crazy, I really don't know what is! Transgenders and a whole bunch of other crazies (read: mentally disturbed) are pushing for rights. Pretty soon, interspecies-erotica will be legalized!
Gays today are being looked at as victims. The gay agenda is making people like me out as bad guys. Using the media and guilt, gay rights activists are portraying anti-gay rights activists as homophobic (clear example) and verbally militant.
I am not going to act like I came up with the following by myself. This was just too great not to post.
The DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual
of Mental Disorders) is the most widely used
diagnostic reference book utilized by mental
health professionals in the United States.
It’s a manual by which all diagnostic codes are
derived for diagnosis and treatment – every single
physician (an estimated 850,000*) in the
United States refers to this book in order to
code for a diagnosis. In plain English, what does
this mean? It means that for over 30 years physicians
have been prevented from properly diagnosing
homosexuality as an aberrant behavior
and thus, cannot, recommend a course of treatment
for these individuals.
Prior to that time, homosexuality had been
treated as a mental disorder under section “302.
Sexual Deviations” in the DSM-II. Section 302
said, in part: “This category is for individuals
whose sexual interests are directed primarily
toward objects other than people of the opposite
sex, toward sexual acts … performed
under bizarre circumstances. … Even though
many find their practices distasteful, they remain
unable to substitute normal sexual behavior
for them.” Homosexuality was listed as
the first sexual deviation under 302. Once that
diagnostic code for homosexuality was removed,
physicians, including psychiatrists, have been
prevented from diagnosing homosexuality as a
mental disorder for more than three decades.
