I had written that research paper about ten years ago and thought you might appreciate all the information because I feel it is thorough. I'm not anti-homo and the paper was not written with any bias. I seriously researched the subject for my own elucidation and satisfaction. I would admit a pre-disposition to the assumption that gay is not genetic but allowed the data to reveal itself. That was the question that needed answering.
That said, your actions in regard to that attraction is a choice. If you think it's wrong to act on your attraction, I can respect that choice. If you think that your orientation is different, then you're not being honest with yourself. I once knew a man who was a Catholic priest. He was not in the closet, in that he certainly considered his orientation to be homosexual. But he chose a life of celibacy, same as the straight priests.
I don't think it is drastic. I have several friends who have gay male children. I asked them (the fathers) what caused it. Both fathers said that they thought their boys had been molested by homo friends of their own when they were very young. Homos have more homo friends and acquaintances than straights, ergo the possibility of homo molestation is much greater. That would be my best thoughts as relate to the possibilities.
However, I think it entirely plausible that this imperative to procreate can be reversed in human genetic coding. That is because this occurs in nature as a method of reducing overpopulation in various species. That would leave homosexuals with no such drive, instead leading them to focus on neuter relationships. Thus the lack of arousal would be due to a natural resistance to female hormones released to incite sexual attraction and arousal.
I also disagree that arousal is inevitable simply because those stressors you mention are not present due to the above.
I mean it's possible that a gay person could have been the natural parent...came out as homosexual...then took custody of his or her child and raised them.
So really my curiosity is more related to statistical significance of adopted children only raised by gay parents.
If there is a 30% outcome over the average 3% population....that's drastic...very drastic.
Again, thanks for posting those studies.
It is a choice as sin always is. We have free choice to not sin.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
