Science confirms that, liberal talking points notwithstanding, sexual behavior is a matter of choice, not inborn destiny:
Eight major studies of identical twins in Australia, the U.S., and Scandinavia during the last two decades all arrive at the same conclusion: gays were not born that way.
“At best genetics is a minor factor,” says Dr. Neil Whitehead, PhD. Whitehead worked for the New Zealand government as a scientific researcher for 24 years, then spent four years working for the United Nations and International Atomic Energy Agency. … His PhD is in biochemistry and statistics.
Identical twins have the same genes or DNA. They are nurtured in equal prenatal conditions. If homosexuality is caused by genetics or prenatal conditions and one twin is gay, the co-twin should also be gay.
“Because they have identical DNA, it ought to be 100%,” Dr. Whitehead notes. But the studies reveal something else. “If an identical twin has same-sex attraction the chances the co-twin has it are only about 11% for men and 14% for women.” …
A significant twin study among adolescents shows an even weaker genetic correlation. In 2002 Bearman and Brueckner studied tens of thousands of adolescent students in the U.S. The same-sex attraction concordance between identical twins was only 7.7% for males and 5.3% for females—lower than the 11% and 14% in the Australian study by Bailey et al conducted in 2000.
It is only that high because twins tend to share an environment and influence each other.
Because identical twins are always genetically identical, homosexuality cannot be genetically dictated. “No-one is born gay,” [Dr. Whitehead] notes.
No one is born a pedophile either. Keep that in mind when moonbats inevitably push the envelope a little bit further by insisting we regard pedophilia as normal and screeching that anyone who won’t comply is a pedophobe who oppressively discriminates against helpless victims.
