    Wrong, There is anicdotial evidence that the numbers of homosexual experiences, especially among college women, has risen in those groups that are involved with gender studies and advocacy groups. Also any behaviorial trait can be learned.

    Ok. Before we have even discussed one such study let me point out the inconsistency that you have displayed. You are a social scientist who is familiar with studies on attraction as a learned behaviour, who absolutely deny that they exist. nice.

    I am hesitant to cite a particular because I anticipate that you will say it doesn't apply to sexual preference, and I'd agree that you'd have a valid argument to make as I didn't claim that specific of an argument either. You could also anticipate that I'd say with regard to sexual preference we just don't know for certain, but some principals of attraction are universally agreed on.

    So what do you make of studies on proximity and reciprocity, learned attraction??

    That is not accurate at all. Those studies indicate that human sexuality is rarely 100% straight or 100% gay. Which considering orientation is attraction to another person it can mean a lot of different things.

    OK. let's just go with this: Any behavior can be learned.

    That is so cool,john.

    Now,all you have to do is go out and learn ya some homosexuality and problem solved!

    Now you won't have to repeat all those flimsy rationalizations you use against gay people any more.

    If you're open to learning it. But have no fear, they'll be enough women to procreate with.

    That probably just means that women who would have otherwise repressed their desires felt comfortable acting on them.

    Getting horny when you see a buff guy with his shirt off isn't a behavioral trait that get's learned. I'm comfortable with homosexuality, but I don't get hot for shirtless guys -- no matter how buff. My lack of animosity towards homosexuality doesn't make me suddenly star getting a bulge in my shorts when I see a male body. If you get a little short in breath when you see a buff guy, then you're already gay -- or at least bi; you're just suppressing it.

    You are referring to private school vouchers? Have you heard of separation of church and state? I'm for public funds to buy economics textbooks or something if you want to home school. In fact, i think public middle/high schools are so lousy and inefficient at educating and career training, I'd almost rather shut them all down. But unconstitutional public funding of religious schools that can still discriminate (thanks to the 1st amendment, no less) California Court Rules Religious Schools May Expel Gay Students

    No, I'm not going to agree to that. If you think you know best how to raise your kids, with no 'gay agenda', do it on your own.

    The religious extremist agenda, on the other hand, is real and a real threat to kids:
