What is Homosexuality? Can my child be born gay?

Homosexuality is the romantic/sexual attraction between two members of the same sex.

The first recorded evidence of homosexuality is found in Mesopotamia, circa
3000 B.C where artifacts have been discovered depicting same sex
couples. Alexander the Great is also recorded as having had a same sex
relationship.

For a long time homosexuality was a socially awkward practice but it has since become something easier to accept.




Clinically, homosexuality had been considered a mental illness until 1973; when the APA (American Psychological Association) changed it's admission.




Why the change?

In 1973 the changing social norms & attitudes; as well as the new up and coming politically active gay community led the Board of Directors of the American Psychiatric Association
to remove homosexuality from the
Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders

  • who cares what others do in their own lives as long as it doesn't affect mine? I would rather live in a neighborhood full of gays than islamists, and the yards would be kept nicer lol

  • Born Gay

    Born gay, as gay as the friend blows
    As free as your ass shows
    Born gay to follow your heart.

    Live gay and beauty surrounds you
    The world still astounds you
    Each time you visit gay bars.

    Stay gay, where no breasts divide you
    You're gay as a flaming bride
    So there's no need to hide.

    Born gay, and life is worth living
    But only worth living
    'Cause you're born gay.

  • wow, that is a lot of reading. I think instead of reading all that I will just say who cares. I think i would rather live in san francisco with a large gay population than say, in DC, or Detroit, or Philly, or any where else with a large inner city youth population.

  • I do feel sorry for the gays though, and I hope one day there is a cure for it, I mean, getting another mans shit all over your cock and under your fingernails just isn't right is it?

  • Maybe being gay is slightly better than having a girlfriend that wipes her ass from back to front, but I doubt it.

    Homosexuality is aberrant and suicidal.

  • The APA removed homosexuality from their DSM list as a result of terroristic threats, theft, lies, threats of physical violence and general overall treachery by homosexual jihadists, all evidenced by pro homo psychologist and APA board member Dr. Ronald Bayer.

  • Homosexuality is a learned trait. It is the true self indulgence of a human being. After saying that, love the person, hate the sin.

  • People are born homosexual. It is not a choice.

      Try talking to people who are gay, they will tell you. Some would say they would chose to be heterosexual if it was a choice.

      People who like to believe it is wrong can only refer to some man made religious book as their reference.

    • @-stile- Yeah I agree. Most people I meet that think being gay is a choice are religious freaks

    • @The-Irish_Jew I don't think that it is a choice any more than being born with Down's Syndrome. Either way, it is a defect... so yeah, if I was "born gay" i'd want to be normal as well. So would most retards (if they could comprehend that). I'm not taking away from the obvious talents or skills that many gays excel at, I'm speaking purely from a sexual standpoint.

      Your are correct, being gay is man made up.

  • You forgot to note that homosexuality is quite common in other animals apart from Homo Sapiens. Mind you, so is rape, gang rape, paedophilia, inter species sex...(the list goes on...)

  • Personally, I think it's a complex combination of factors, but mainly due to errors made in the upbringing of a child, in particular the closeness of the relationship between a child and their parents.

  • please read this letter. i feel so confused and offended about myself with regards to the way i am, and i think i need a psychologist or a psychiatrist or some kind of therapy to let me know what it is i need to know...because not knowing my true identity is causing me to be drastic in the way i cope.

    I WANT TO FIND OUT WHO I WAS PREDETERMINED TO BE, I DON'T WANT TO BE LIVING A LIE!!!!!

    i was reading on some "born this way" website about someone - let's call him "randolph" More..

    • @Momus Don't forget dogs eating shit and vomit. I love hearing gay defenders use the old "haven't you seen male dogs hump each other? Clearly it's a natural thing." with no comprehension that its about dominance. I always respond "Yeah, they eat shit and vomit, too. Is that part of the gay lifestyle as well?".

    • @Dear Leader Yeah, but they didn't really "eat" it. Those girls were just frolicking about in it. BTW, I read somewhere that the stuff that was coming out of their butts was a concoction of different foods that was pumped up in their asses for the movie, but the vomit... that shit was real. Those are the girls that you want to take home to mom!
