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.
    My question is just how accurate was the gene mapping at the time of these studies? You are probably aware that all it takes is a single set of letters of genetic code in a reversed location, and this could generate a change in say...a male's reaction to female pheromones that normally serve to incite attraction. Is that not correct?

    Another question arises, just how perfect a match does it take to get "identical" twins? Is it not possible that the researchers missed one reversed set amongst the millions of marking pairs which would otherwise leave any set of twins appearing a "perfect" match?

    So it's not a choice, then. If it were a choice, you could simply choose to like it.

    Heaven only knows, there is a plentiful supply of the stuff. At least in my back yard there is.

    Re: Is Homosexuality A Choice?

    i remember the first time i realized i was attracted to girls. i was four years old in nursery school, and i fell head over heels for another girl. we proceeded to have mock marriages every month or two.

    i truly doubt that it's any different for gay people. i was friends with a girl in high school who was the ultimate tomboy, and she made a real effort to date guys, but it was just completely obvious that she was gay. she even asked me out, but there was something about her masculinity that turned me off. we're still friends, and she has fully come out. some of her friends were surprised, but i wasn't. so no, i don't think it's a "choice."

    That's fine, the OP asked for our opinion and I gave it.

    Brother David..."Sin" is such an abstract word/term. But then again, you do know that...really you do.
