I think it's the homophobes and bigots who need to get better educated about hard-wire personality traits like sexual identity and sexual orientation. Sexual orientation is a hard-wire personality trait -- a function of genetics, brain development and PRENATAL issues.
Same-sex attraction has nothing to with nurture or development. However, how you express your natural attraction to one sex or another (aggressive, subtle, etc.) is a function of upbringing, development, etc.
Councilman, was it one of your younger brothers who was born homosexual?
The most conclusive studies about homosexuality have found patterns in families that have multiple boys where one of the younger brothers is homosexual--suggesting prenatal issues, changes in the mother's body when she has more than one boy and a possible undetected prenatal virus that effects brain development and sexual orientation.
Homosexuality is not a choice.
