Scientific Take on Sexuality and Gender

The thought police aren’t going to like this. A major report has come out on sexuality and gender, in which two highly accomplished scientists lay waste to the leftist dogma underlying the current homosexual/transsexual cultural Marxist blitzkrieg. A few highlights from the Executive Summary:

● The understanding of sexual orientation as an innate, biologically fixed property of human beings — the idea that people are “born that way” — is not supported by scientific evidence.

● Longitudinal studies of adolescents suggest that sexual orientation may be quite fluid over the life course for some people, with one study estimating that as many as 80% of male adolescents who report same-sex attractions no longer do so as adults.

● Compared to heterosexuals, non-heterosexuals are about two to three times as likely to have experienced childhood sexual abuse.

● Compared to the general population, non-heterosexual subpopulations are at an elevated risk for a variety of adverse health and mental health outcomes.

● Members of the transgender population are also at higher risk of a variety of mental health problems compared to members of the non-transgender population.

● The hypothesis that gender identity is an innate, fixed property of human beings that is independent of biological sex — that a person might be “a man trapped in a woman’s body” or “a woman trapped in a man’s body” — is not supported by scientific evidence.

● Compared to the general population, adults who have undergone sex-reassignment surgery continue to have a higher risk of experiencing poor mental health outcomes.

● Only a minority of children who experience cross-gender identification will continue to do so into adolescence or adulthood.

A reasonable person would conclude what everyone concluded until just a few years ago: sexual perversion is a choice, and not one that should be encouraged.

Kudos to the authors Lawrence S. Mayer and Paul R. McHugh, for sticking to their scientific guns in a hyperpoliticized field. They know a price will be exacted.

    I’m sure “the party of science” will reverse their course now.

    Why would God create a being to be homosexual and then call it an abomination? It’s never made sense to me.

    One sunny day in January, 2017, an old man approaches the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue where he’d been sitting on a park bench. He speaks to the U.S. Marine standing guard and says, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”

    The Marine looks at the man and says, “Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer President and no longer resides here.” The old man says, “Okay,” and walks away.

    The following day the same man approaches the White House and says to the same Marine, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”

    The Marine again tells the man, “Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Obama is no longer President and no longer resides here.” The man thanks him and again just walks away.

    The third day the same man approaches the White House and speaks to the very same U.S. Marine, saying, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”

    The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looks at the man and says, “Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Obama. I’ve told you already that Mr. Obama is no longer the President and no longer resides here. Don’t you understand?”

    The old man looks at the Marine and says,“Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it.”

    The Marine snaps to attention, salutes, and says, “See you tomorrow, Sir!”

    It’s the act of homosexuality that is the abomination, not the person.

    about time – not that we didn’t know already !
    Brian Lehrer immediately got on board with Bradley Manning becoming Chelsea
    so “whatever he identifies as” becomes the only thing that matters.
    That idiotic thinking pervades the administration.
    It amazes me how they get away with their nonsense, and take each other seriously.
    They are CRACKPOTS and QUACKS and jargon slinging nitwits !

    Of course, one is going up against the jerks at the BBC who produce
    hour long programs on “Non Binary” – promoting all that LGBT rubbish
    about “self identify as”. Mockery is what these jerks need.

    Why are ‘sex change’ operations not labeled as QUACKERY –
    like drinking Radium — did the FDA ever decide this
    is “safe and effective” , by what conceivable standards ?
    Somebody ought to trace the history of this nonsense –
    after all, someone wrote a book about workers in some factory
    painting watch dials with Radium, and the horrible effects.

    And why isn’t “gender theory” labeled as QUACKERY and psychobabble ?
    and speaking of ‘causing problems for gays in america’
    who is responsible for 55,000 new cases of AIDS ? Christians ? NOPE,
    it is ‘gays’ themselves. Check the CDC data.
    That would be a problem that is INCURABLE for the rest of their lives.
    But they would rather blame Ronald Reagan. Always blame someone else.

    you can thank Olson and Boies – and their little Public Relations campaign
    with carefully selected public faces . Go read the Village Voice for a more
    representative face. Then the NY Times says there were only flimsy arguments
    and ‘stereotypes’ on the other side. What a crock. Was that really about taxes ?
    For that they trash marriage ?

    I wish the article had a comments sections, I was hoping to see an epic tantrum from the libfags.

  • Rotohammer

    Mayer seems to be an expert on bio statistics, so the numbers behind this are apt to be solid. He’s also an epidemiologist, which gay activists will seize upon to discredit him. As in what does an epidemiologist know about homosexuality.

    Seems fitting to me – the gay agenda wants homosexuality to spread like an epidemic. The means of transmission is recruiting young kids, before they have any idea what normal sexual attraction is, or during adolescence when sexual attraction to anything that moves can be steered towards same-sex.

    But they have consensus so that trumps actual scientific method.

    Make sure to also read Dr. Michael Brown’s artice that Dave linked to above in the second sentence. He’s been an invaluable voice in fighting againt the insanity of gay activists.

    Great guy, and I’ll be travelling to Israel with him early next year 🙂

    Many gay celebrities have admitted they were victims of childhood sexual abuse including Rosie O’Donnell, Ellen DeGeneres, Anne Heche, Julie Cypher, Melissa Etheridge, swimming star Greg Louganis, MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts, and Chastity Bono, who disclosed how she was seduced as a child into the “gay” lifestyle by one of Cher Bono’s lesbian friends.

  • Tostig

    My best friend when I was 8-12 years old was a kid on my baseball team and as time went on, he got more and more pre- or proto-homosexual – wanting to act out poses with me from my hidden stash of Playboys, etc. Well, time moved on, I lost track of him, and then reconnected with him when I was about 35. At that point, he was a 100 % straight family man with 3 kids and a great life. Point being, in the past some kids were weird, most grew out of it, a few take it with them into adulthood but not that many. If he’d grown up in this decade, his parents would’ve put him in a dress and started him on hormone therapy, and his entire life would’ve been a basket case. That stuff *may* be somehow “born with it” but even if it is, most kids will grow out of it and move on … unless their parents are morally preening SJWs, in which case they’re fucked.

    Gender Theory is ideological is dogmatic. Adherents are akin to fanatics, but in their irreverent, irreligiousness.

    He doesn’t create the urge to murder, people choose to do that.

  • 762×51

    Look up free will. HE has given you the freedom to make those choices, HE didn’t create them to be a homosexual, that was a choice they made.

  • Tooney

    Listen, I agree with you. It is free will. I’m responding to those who say they were created that way.
