I might of got some posts crossed here... But, didn't you say you were homophobic?? But you have gay friends?
Good. Did you read all of the short article? The author made the same point as you:
“Just because something occurs in the natural world doesn't make it 'right' for humans.”
My response was because you said “There's alot of biological evidence that would suggest homosexuality isn't genetical. Therefore its created by the mind which conflicts with the natural order of your body and its functions.”
Are you dismissing all this homosexual activity in the animal kingdom as nothing to do with genetic predisposition and nothing to do with “the natural order”, whatever you mean by that? Is the rest of the animal kingdom not part of this “natural order”?
I think you had it right in your OP, you can’t help it, it’s part of your cultural programming. Perhaps “gay people” can’t help it for more fundamental reasons.
I don’t know exactly how many, but Gay people appear to swing both ways, how would you describe them?
If it was something innate in their nature, they would altogether avoid the opposite sex
I've also read about cases of identical twins that only one is Gay, you can find many cases from all over the world, seems like a conscious choice rather than a genetical one.
Looks like a choice to me, too; but not necessarily a conscious one. There is something in nature called 'imprinting' where the brain at certain times takes experiences, images, and faces to burn them into itself as permanent reference material or as mental anchors. Newly hatched birds are the best example of this. Trying to think of some human examples: an infant, a 5-7 year old boy's crushes, teenage crushes, and traumatic experiences. These all demonstrate that imprinting is a necessary part of our psychology.Postmaster said:I've also read about cases of identical twins that only one is Gay, you can find many cases from all over the world, seems like a conscious choice rather than a genetical one.
Ok just to be clear homophobic might have been a strong word to use..
What do you call someone that fears homosexual expereinces? But doesn't discriminate against them socially?
