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.

I didn't consciously make the decison to shun vagina in favor for penor so I think your preference is one you're born with.

Ok so my daughter is gay and she told me about 9 years ago.  When we were talking about it she was just like mom I love her more then any guy I  have ever dated.  I think it is just the way these people are and it is not wrong or right it just is.  Like when you have blue eyes and blonde hair but some people are born with blue eyes and brown hair.  Its not what we are use to seeing but it is the way god made them.  I was shocked when I found out but now it is just they way we are and they are married in our eyes.

I never chose to be straight. I assume I was just born this way because even when I five I thought boys were the cute ones.

I don't know if there's a gay gene exactly, I've heard that it's probably more like a hormone oddity or something else I can't remember, but there are various possibilities.

I think it is a choice. It was not in my genes who I would marry I picked who I wanted to be with and marry. Just like they choose who they want to be with and they rather be with someone of the same sex. It's thier life thier choice and it dose not affect me so I could care less what they do.

there are people out there that teach their children to judge and spew bigotry.  I personally think that's gross.

did you choose to like men?  Do you remember facing that choice and picking guys?

I think it is mainly genetics. I didn't choose to be straight.
I think the environment can have a little bit of an effect on things as well but that is limited.
Until i had friends in high school who were gay i didn't even know there was such a thing.

So you want to lick vagina but chose penis instead?
