I feel the presence of homosexual characteristics in other species is some good evidence leaning in the genetics arguments' favor. I don't personally care either way, whatever makes ya'll happy.
#51 to #36 - Rascal (08/06/2013) [-]
Wouldn't that make homosexuality a mental illness?

No offense.
#52 to #51 - hopskotch (08/06/2013) [-]
I wouldn't say mental illness is the right term. A different from the majority that are heterosexual, yes, but "illness" refers to an affliction.
User avatar #158 to #52 - angrytoilet (08/06/2013) [-]
A more appropriate analogy would be eye color. A far smaller percentage of people have blue or green eyes than brown eyes. This can be related to a far smaller percentage of people being homosexual than heterosexual. It's genetic variation, plain and simple. And, because we no longer have to worry about natural predators and reproduction is not so urgent a drive to continue the species, heterosexuality has little evolutionary superiority as it comes to humans in this epoch.

This is just a guess, so feel free to critique, but I feel like although homosexuality is almost never a choice, it can be. My sister was born with a bad set of genetics that make her physically unattractive to men (dark arm/leg/facial hair, medically untreatable acne, relatively tall, etc) and she has recently come out after living in an all-female co-op. My guess is that her lack of male attention her whole life and her feeling of acceptance and belonging with rougher, manlier women has led to her choosing to be gay. I could be completely wrong about it too.
#292 - GodOfGodz (08/06/2013) [-]
I dont think being gay is a choice or genetic. I think it depends on how you were raised. I know this kid who only hung out with the girls in elementary school, only talked to the girls, and then in high school, I find out hes gay now. My cousin was raised in a house with 3 women, and his dad. His dad (my uncle) is an INSANELY manly man, he hunts, you name something manly, hes done it. Anyway, he kind of forced his manly lifestyle onto my cousin, but he didnt like it and stayed with his mom and sisters, and now hes gay. Just my thoughts.
User avatar #341 to #292 - nucularwar (08/06/2013) [-]
if it was how you were raised, then the guy with the manly dad would be manly.
User avatar #306 to #292 - monkee (08/06/2013) [-]
I think it's the other way around, your sexual orientation is decided before you're even born which affects your life decisions. If you look up some of the info into brain sexing, you'll find most gay males have brains very similar to that of a female. No one theory fits everything, but I would see this as the reason your cousin avoided his manly man father before he himself knew he was gay.
User avatar #366 to #306 - angrytoilet (08/06/2013) [-]
Male brains and females brains are remarkably different. Gay male brains only share one trait with female brains, and that is a relatively small hypothalamus.

Gay marriage is a trick question to begin with, its just something to get everyone pissed off about. If you're actually in love with somebody, you don't need to pay some dude with a bible a bunch of cash to tell you can smack lips with your other half.

If everyone minded their own business we wouldn't have these issues, but no, we have being gay people trying to cause a huge ruckus because they suck more dick than the rest of us. That's fantastic, keep it to yourself and nobody will care.

******* hate this society.

Sadly, you have a valid point..haha
#312 to #280 - Rascal (08/06/2013) [-]
I agree with everyone minding their own business, but the thing about marriage is we have given it weight as a process in which people are able to tie their possessions together, and inherent said possessions after death. It also gives them rights to make medical decisions and a whole slew of other perks which they are being denied because we've decided that marriage is the one thing that makes these rights a given, without having to spell it out in a will.

You can have marriage outside of the church, and the benefits to this are to a degree pointed out by the anon below me, so your argument is null.

Then don't come out. Why do they need to know? When you're old enough, move away from them and live your life.
#231 to #227 - Rascal (08/06/2013) [-]
Don't come out until they have no influence on you. What I've learned in this world is that people are horrible and biased creatures. They let their view of you influence how they treat you. If you do not meet their specifications they will do anything in their power to make you miserable, they will NOT accept you for how you are. I know what they are.

Everyone you look up to has one thing in common: they are all unusual. Never be afraid to be unusual, because you just first be unusual before you can become extraordinary. At one point in time, Bill Gates was a nerd who worked on a new technology in his garage. At one point in time, Norman Borlaug was a man that simply studied harder than his friends and didn't go out for beers that often. At one point in time, all Navy SEALs were just "workout nerds" that spent 2 hours a day in the gym instead of being out chasing tail.

You must first be unusual in order to become extraordinary. Picture... Related?

Be true to yourself, man. They aren't the one that has to live with the choice, it's you whom you see in the mirror everyday, not them. Do what feels right to you deep inside(pun may or may not be intended), and if they disown you for it? **** 'em, not worth your time or the stress. If they try to hurt you for it, time to call the po-pos and file a discrimination suit against 'em.

I've never understood why people thought/think being gay is a "choice."
Even when you're straight, you don't CHOOSE who you fall in love with. You can't just look at some woman or man and say "Hey, I'm going to be in love with that person on the other side of the street because I choose to!"
NO. Just ******* NO.
There is no truth in the "I CAN choose, I just don't WANT to." argument, because that's the stupidest ******* **** ever and it is complete and utter ******** . If that is your reasoning, you can take it, put it inside of a cactus, and shove that cactus either up your ass or down your throat.
I originally didn't want to "like like" the guy who is now my boyfriend, and whom I love very much. I didn't WANT to, but it just happened, so it's not a ******* choice.
Being gay is not a choice. So you fall in love with another man, or another woman. You can't just choose one day to like the same sex. It's what life is, and being gay is completely, perfectly fine.
#140 to #139 - Rascal (08/06/2013) [-]
being gay is the same as falling in love, only with the same sex. it's not a choice, and there's nothing wrong with it.
User avatar #142 to #139 - vatra (08/06/2013) [-]
My father is one of those that thinks it is a choice, and he disowned my brother for being gay.
User avatar #154 to #139 - Sethorein ONLINE (08/06/2013) [-]
I totally decided to be straight. It was real tough you know. I was 12 years old and the sexuality fairy dropped by and was all like... "Listen, faggot. You can either be totally fabulous, smell and look amazing but take dicks in your ass, or you can be an average joe but get to touch boobies and like it like... maybe once every couple months".

It was a real tough decision, but you know... I think I chose right.

The problem was that it was too much sarcasm. Laid on way thick. And hey, I just want to say I'm sorry about the cancer comment. That was a bit harsh. For all I know, you could have lost a loved one to cancer, and I would have just reminded you of that.

Show me specifically where the Bible says rape is God's will, because I don't remember reading that anywhere.
User avatar #122 to #120 - ukc (08/06/2013) [-]
it's an argument for extreme pro-lifers, who say that even if a woman is raped, there is a bigger plan, and that it is "God's will".
User avatar #123 to #122 - amateriandarknut (08/06/2013) [-]
Then the post is immediately invalidated because it is what people say, not what the Bible says. Whether or not abortion is acceptable in this case is another argument I'm not going to get into.
#129 to #123 - Rascal (08/06/2013) [-]

User avatar #226 to #126 - frobskottle (08/06/2013) [-]
I agree very much so. Sexual orientation isn't a choice for many people. However, I think that it is not a genetic issue, but rather a environmental/ nurture issue. Therefore, many people were not "born this way" but instead raised/conditioned with a psychological disposition to be attracted to the same sex. Granted, some people are born with more feminine/masculine characteristics, but much like a language, gender roles and identities as well as sexual orientation is heavily influenced by environmental factors during formative years. So it is not a choice in a sense of it being like deciding what to wear to school today, but rather a developed habit or pattern of behavior. That is where I think people are being misinformed and also misconstrued.
User avatar #398 to #226 - ukc (08/07/2013) [-]
Wait, but if people are born with masculine and feminine brains, that doesn't have any effect on sexuality.
And what about bisexual people?

I was raised as a straight male, but obviously that didn't work out, did it? I was never exposed to any "deviant" sexuality whatsoever, I only have one other minority sexuality relation and I've seen him once in my life, he didn't influence me at all. I think the most diverse my upbringing got was love thy neighbour...
User avatar #401 to #398 - frobskottle (08/07/2013) [-]
Let me say that I do not mean to offend and I am not so sure of my own conclusion to say that I am right. I am only speaking from a perspective of what I have learned from human behavior studies and my own observations. Honestly, I don't know about bisexual people and I do not now about you or your life. From what I have learned, a person's habits and hobbies and preferences are influenced by their genetics, but determined more so by their environment. "Environment" in this sense doesn't exclusively mean what you are exposed to, but also what you are kept from and the events that are out of your control that invoke an emotional response. So it is much more than "deviant sexuality." It could be from a cacophony of things. Good or bad.
User avatar #402 to #401 - ukc (08/07/2013) [-]
To be honest, I do think it is genetics. Sexual attraction and instinctual urge to reproduce is hardwired into your DNA, and as is well documented and recorded, mutations in those genes occur. I'm happy to accept that sexuality is probably a genetic mutation.

You do hear stories of people raised in strict christian communities, and upon puberty, discovering that they're attracted to the same sex, as well as/instead of the other. I don't think it's a thing that can be altered directly, as in the actual sexuality, but I think the degree of deviancy can probably be influenced by upbringing (i.e. fear of retribution upon discovery)
User avatar #130 to #126 - amateriandarknut (08/06/2013) [-]
Actually, it does. Romans 1 labels it as a sin, and Romans 8 indicates that sin is a choice.

For you atheists that have it out for the Bible, keep your red thumbs. I'm not debating its legitimacy, I am only clarifying what it says.
User avatar #133 to #130 - ukc (08/06/2013) [-]
Thanks for straightening that out for me. As a minority sexuality person, I'm not a person of faith, although that has more to do with overt cynicism than fear of the retribution of the Lord or Allah (SWT) or any other god that guides a group.
To be honest, I respect your opinion, at least you're being reasonable, unlike anon.
User avatar #136 to #133 - amateriandarknut (08/06/2013) [-]
I had my time being an idiot back about six years ago now, but now I've learned there's no purpose to arguing points like that. Deciding what you believe is up to yourself, I just don't like anyone shooting out blatantly wrong things about any form of belief. Let people decide what they think is right without all this bias.

Most of those statements are false. I don't know where you're getting your information but its wrong.

#116 to #103 - trickytrickster (08/06/2013) [-]
Well God doesn't send anyone to hell, they choose to go there themselves. But like I said, any true Christian would understand that those actions were justified because God has perfect judgement. From an outside point of view you would obviously disagree.
