Do you think that being gay is a choice or genetics

Posted by   + Show Post

Just curious what people think, a lot of people say that they were born that way well then should there not be a DNA code for the gay gene?  They can find the code for male or female, brown and blue eyes and for certain diseases and disorders so then where is the gay DNA ?  If they are going to say that they were born that way well is there any definite scientific proof that can actually back this up.  So then if a parent has a gay test done on an unborn fetus and they do not believe in that lifestyle is that an okay reason to terminate the child just a few things to ponder.

When did you choose to be straight? Do you still feel attracted to females and have to actively choose to be straight every day?

I don't ever remember choosing to be straight. It is who I am. I was born this way. I cannot fathom being any other way.

So when did you choose to be straight and was it a hard transition from before you made that choice?

Quoting toomanypoodles:

 Absolute choice.  God created a man and a woman to have sex together.  If he had wanted man to lay with man and woman with woman He'd have created two of each sex and said, "Here--you choose".

It's just NUTS to think to think one is "born that way"

And your question at the end is stupid---people that don't believe a homosexual lifestyle is okay do not abort their babies. 



 I wasn't born a Christian, it is a life I chose to live and BE. 

Were you born straight?

 I was born a woman, therefore I have sex with a man, one man, my husband---the way God intended it to be. 

You did not answer my question.  You are saying that you are being who you are based on being taught and told to.

 I've never been attracted to as women. 

So you did not make a choice to be straight?

Okay.  Neither have I. I was born straight.

You mentioned, earlier, that you were not born a Christian, it was a choice you made.  Same with myself.

Do you not see what I am saying?

You did not choose to be straight.  You were born with an attraction to men.  You were not born a Christian, that was a choice you made.

Is there a genetic code for being a dumbass?

And you support beating a child if they were to come to you and say they were gay? Does that seem like something Jesus would have been in favor of?

My personal feeling.. who cares!!!! Why does it matter? You are who you are and fall in love with who you do. I'm married to a man that I love so much, our relationship is amazing, yeah.. we're that couple! lol Even after 11 years! Who the hell am I to deny ANYONE that right! That being said, gay, straight or bi.. does anyone making that announcement, commitment or whatever else people have a problem with... does it Really affect me in my personal life? Does genetics, rights etc. affect me in my personal life? No! I can't honeslty say if its a choice or genetics.. What I can say is even after 11 years of my hubby's stanky feet.. I'm still with him... lol :) So that kind of commitment has to in our DNA somewhere.... trust me! :0)

i would like to see a straight person try to choose to be gay. that answers the question right there. you are born with your sexualty from birth.

You didn't answer the question. And I have no problems with Christians nor do most of the people I know. I respect that others have different beliefs and I have no problems with that until those beliefs are trying to deny rights to someone else.

Quoting punky3175:

How many gay people do you know? How many conversations have you had with them? Have you heard them explain how they have ALWAYS been attracted to the same sex? I know quite a few and not a one (male or female) CHOSE to like the same sex.

WHY would anyone make a choice like that? It brings hatred from others and ridicule from closed minded individuals in society. It means they have to fight for the same basic rights that everyone else has such as the right to marry the person the love. No one would CHOOSE that lifestyle.

 As long as people call Christians closed minded bigots and homophobes, we really can't have a discussion.  You pass judgment on us for our Biblical beliefs.  They way you (not you, but in general) accuse Christians is just as bad as the way you feel some Christians respond towards homosexual behaviour. 


You cannot see that you are just as bigoted towards Christians.  We believe differently, but you persecute us for not believing as you do. 


Open your eyes and see how you are unacceptive and judgmental towards Christians before you slam us Christians for not accepting your beliefs.
