Are gays ‘born that way’? Most now say yes, but science says no.

For the first time, a majority of Americans say that homosexuals are "born that way."
According to the latest Gallup poll, 51 percent of Americans say that people are born gay or lesbian, while only 30 percent say outside factors such as upbringing and environment determine sexual orientation.

However, science would not bear that out. No fewer than eight major studies from around the world have found homosexuality is not a genetic condition.
Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council says that these numerous, rigorous studies of identical twins have now made it impossible to argue that there is a "gay gene." If homosexuality were inborn and predetermined, then when one identical twin is homosexual, the other should be, as well.
Yet one study from Yale and Columbia Universities found homosexuality common to only 6.7 percent of male identical twins and 5.3 percent of female identical twins.
The low rate of common homosexuality in identical twins – around six percent – is easily explained by nurture, not nature.
Researchers Peter Bearman and Hannah Brueckner concluded that environment was the determining factor. They rejected outright that "genetic influence independent of social context" as the reason for homosexuality. "(O)ur results support the hypothesis that less gendered socialization in early childhood and preadolescence shapes subsequent same-sex romantic preferences."
"Less gendered socialization" means, a boy was without a positive father figure, or a girl was without a positive mother figure.
In light of the evidence, Sprigg said simply, "No one is born gay."
Psychiatrists William Byne and Bruce Parsons summarize the science: "Critical review shows the evidence favoring a biologic theory to be lacking. ... In fact, the current trend may be to underrate the explanatory power of extant psychosocial models." In other words, homosexuality is a psychological malady, not something people are born with.
Some homosexuals openly admit that their lifestyle is a choice. Lindsay Miller, who describes herself as a "queer woman," complained in The Atlantic monthly, "I get frustrated with the veiled condescension of straight people who believe that queers 'can't help it,' and thus should be treated with tolerance and pity.”
“I was not born this way,” she wrote. “The life I have now is not something I ended up with because I had no other options. Make no mistake – it's a life I chose.”

We all have choices to make in life, some are hard, some are as simple as, do I turn right or left, either way, dealing with things on a basis of reality makes things a whole lot easier, but if we follow what we know not to be the truth then we listen to propaganda...and we have lots of that lately. How can we face up to the challenges of what life throws at us when so many try to impose their will with what is basically propaganda and untruths...
With this in mind, teaching kids as early as in kindergarten about homosexuality and sex, without been honest about it will only make things worse...
Been openly sincere, especially when teaching kids is a must if we want society to achieve it's full potential, if they are blasted with misinformation, they will take it with them as adults and nothing will ever change.
Honesty is the best way to go towards acceptance, sure not everyone will accept, such in the character of humanity, but at least the truth will be known. And we can move on to other issues.
 If one is married or in a relationship with the opposite sex, has kids, then switches, it is a choice, how can they be "born this way".
Many in the gay community try to "force" people to accept their version without discussion, this is wrong, it also promotes resentment, talking about the many issues surrounding all this and accepting not everyone thinks the same and never will, opens the doors to peaceful dialogue and that is always a better path than imposition of someone else will on a person.

TNC does not support or condemn the gay lifestyle, but only offers an opinion.
