The simple answer is no.

If you want to argue. Show me these reliable "scientific" studies.



ETA: IM not against gay people. Believe me, im not. I can't stand hearing people insist they were born that way instead of just admitting it is a personal choice. A personal choice that is made from varying factors. No one thing has made someone the way they are. Period.

ETA... UM wow this post is active again after almost 3 weeks. Crap.
Um so yea... It is OBVIOUS that each individual person is different... Maybe some people really do just have a biological attraction to the same sex, but there are also gay people who chose to be that way later in life, and there are the gay people who were influenced in that direction... No one can really say one way or the other. I'm just sick of everyone defending gay people as if they are a dying breed of some sort... They are people just like everyone else and what they choose to do in their sex life does not change who they are as people.

No. We are born completely ignorant. We learn by how we are taught, who we are around (the kind of people we socialize with). Gay or straight is learned. Its not a trait.

What about families that have one gay sibling and one straight sibling.  Both raised around the same family members, both with middle-class, straight friends.  What makes one gay and one straight?

Social choices. Who they choose to socialize with. Just like families who have "jocks" and "nerds".

Okay, but they socilaize with the same people.  They're close in age, so they share many of the same friends.  What then?
