  • No but alot of people believe that and its so wrong my uncle peter was straight and his wife and my cousin Kevin is Gay. So this has nothing to do with it.

  • I am not. I know plenty of gay/lesbian people who have come from completely straight parents.

  • I learned in psychology that you are more likely to be gay/lesbian if you have a parent who is gay/lesbian. Not because it is learned but because there is a gene, if know one knew, that psychologist and geneticists believe is carried on. Pretty interesting. And I know gay people can come from straight people, My great uncle is gay and his parents were married until they died, they were the most "IN LOVE" people I have ever seen.

  • Sexual orientation is inherent.  It cannot be taught.

  • The reason for the question, I just recently met some people who actually believed this and I was baffled, and wondered how many more are out there with this misinformation.

  • Domonique, the gene usually skips a generation or two, all the gays I know and I know a lot of them come from heterosexual couples.
