That's stupid, it's like saying because you're not jewish you don't have a say about anti-semitism.

Cool - i've read that book too :wink:

Hmm i think it's multi-factorial, with a blend of environmental and genetic influences?

Just a personal take on it.

In regards to the book on genome. We dont know what most of the big genes do. So to assume that guy knows what might cause someone to be gay in a gene that he probably doesnt know where it is is a slight stretch. Maybe we should quote books that have some footing in fact. The truth is it could be social it could be environmental it just be a couple wires are crossed. Its like asking why I have a thing for redheads. Who knows maybe its in the genes and maybe its not.

Yeah i agree - and i think it's definitely multi-factorial rather than because of just one factor (e.g environmental).

I think it'll be "breaking news" if they ever manage to link certain genes to homosexuality.

Yeah I agree with some people that born gay is possible. Its a matter of the hormone concentration of an individual. Higher level of estrogen in male would act like a feminine, but not all of them end up a 100 % gay. Because I knew some male who are feminine type who got married with a beautiful wife and have a beautiful kids. Another thing some feminine type males ended up as a gay because of the environmental factors and the type of community.

Just my opinion on this:

The popularity of shows like "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" and "Trading Spouses" can affect how men see what are ways to get ladies to like them...frankly the whole "metrosexual" thing borders on homosexuality at times. If you want to say environment or society...well there's your example.

what do u think


If this were true, all of my squad buddies from the Marine Corps should be gay, but we weren't. Sexual thoughts every 9 seconds? Bull.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

And if you're not male, you can't study the Y-chromosome. If you're not Christian, you can't read the Bible. If you're not black, you can't admire Martin Luther King, Jr. Get real!

I agree that it's probably a mix of genetic and environmental factors. I also think that a person's sexual orientation can change during their lifetime; just look at all those stories you hear from people who've been through prison.

I honestly think I agree with the great comedian Ron White, that we're all gay, it's just to what extent are you gay (or straight, for that matter).

I also don't think being feminine equates to being gay. I know quite a few guys who are feminine but aren't gay.
