Is homosexuality a Choice?

When people talk about homosexuality, they often ask: Is it a choice? -I heard it is. Hello. What's your name? -Christian Well Christian, let's see what the latest science has to say. -Oh, that... To help us, here are to gay people: George and Martha. Before when can answer: "Is it a choice?", we must first determine what it means to be gay. How do you know you're a homosexual? The same way you know that you're straight. Since the XIX century, many theories about homosexuality had been offered, that are untestable and contradictory. -Male homosexuality is a result of an absent father "unt" an overbearing mother. -See you! -Stand up straight dear! "Unt", the female homosexual has never recovered from her anger over not having the penis. She wishes to avenge her perceived castration by taking another female as her sexual object. -You're kidding me, right? -Well, I've always been told that homosexuality is unnatural. Is it? In fact, homosexual relations are common in nature, including: zebras, baboons, dolphins, sheep, buffalo, ducks, foxes, elephants, horses, gorilas, moose, house cats, pigs, mice, rabbits, swams and lions to name a few... -Well, okay, but we're not animals, human beings have free will! -You don't just decide who to love! He he, settle down there, Martha. Christian does have a point, but let's take a look at the most recent scientific evidence: As they study sexual orientation, scientists are currently looking at three main areas: Genes, Hormones and Birth Order. Of course, most of these studies focus only on male sexuality. Sorry Martha. -What a shock! Let's first look at studies of identical twin. -Hi! When one identical twin is a gay man, the other twin is gay up to 70% of the time, far higher then would occur if genes played no role. In fact this study show that genes play a greater role in determining sexual orientation Then they do when whether or not you're right or left handed. And we don't punish the left handed. Well, not anymore... Scientists have recently noticed a striking statistical phenomenon. Studies show that having older brothers increases the odds of a boy being homosexual. Moms always baby the youngest, making them gay. No, that's not it. When a woman is pregnant with a boy, scientists are realizing that her female body often sees the male fetus as a foreign object. and begins to produce antibodies against it. the more boys a woman has, the more adept her body becomes at feminizing the fetus, Which may explain why with every successive boy, the odds that he will be gay, go up significantly. -Alright, maybe you all accept it, but, what about those people who started out gay, and say they became straight by discovering God? What about ex-gay ministries? Even so called ex-gay ministries, don't claim to change a person's inner sexual desires, Just his or hers sexual conduct. -(We're still gay!) -If these places really work, why don't they all use the same technique? Why does each ministry experiment its own way? -Well... -And why have so many members and leaders recanted earlier claims that they were changed? -Maybe these programs don't work for everyone, but what's the harm? -How about the feelings of shame and guilt they instill in reinforcing their victims? Or the money, energy and time they sep for people with nothing wrong with them! -Says you... Well, in point of fact not just George says that Christian; The American Medical Association, The American Psychiatric Association, The American Psychological Association, The American Psychoanalytic Association, The American Academy of Pediatric and the National Association of Social workers have all stated that homosexuality should not be treated as a mental disorder, and that they oppose attempts at reparative or conversion therapy and that sexual orientation is not a choice, and cannot be changed. -So that's it? I'm supposed to believe that it's not a choice just because all those doctors and scientists say so? -Or you can just ask us! -I do know this one girl named Heather who goes back and forth but she... -Shut up!

Is it a Choice or are we born that way? A nice cartoon about that issue.

I cut this clip from the multiple award-winning documentary, "For The Bible Tells Me So".
