Scientific Paper: Gays Aren’t Born That Way
Today, the leading pervert apologists who support transgender delusion as a matter of scientific fact are the same kinds of extremists who, decades ago, pushed the narrative that homosexuals are “born that way” and feverishly worked to stifle scientific and cultural discussions concerning this politicized conclusion. Now, two Johns Hopkins scholars have kicked the homosexual hornet’s nest by proclaiming that there is little scientific evidence that shows that homosexuality is genetic. Sadly, these two will likely be treated to the same kind of inquisition that “climate change” skeptics now endure.
A controversial new paper has argued that gay people are not ‘born this way’ – and claims there is little scientific evidence to show that sexuality is innate.
Paul McHugh and Lawrence S Mayer of John Hopkins University analysed 200 scientific papers and concluded that there’s little evidence that homosexuality is genetic, or caused by differences in the brain.
The researchers write, ‘The belief that sexual orientation is an innate, biologically fixed human property — that people are “born that way” — is not supported by scientific evidence.
Instead, the researchers argue, sexuality is more complex than it is often portrayed in the media – and, while it is not a choice, environmental factors play a large part.
Dr McHugh is a controversial figure who is an opponent of gender reassignment surgery.
In an interview this summer, he said, ‘Well, as I have said, there is no gay gene. And there are factors more influential than biology.”
‘If you are a man and you grow up in a rural environment, you are four times less likely to have homosexual relationships than if you grow up in a metropolitan area. That’s not left-handedness.’
Dr Mayer says, ‘This report is about science and medicine, nothing more and nothing less. Cultural and political trends should not influence the reality of the importance of dealing with these difficult and personal issues.
‘As citizens, scholars, and clinicians concerned with the problems facing LGBT people, we should not be dogmatically committed to any particular views about the nature of sexuality or gender identity; rather, we should be guided first and foremost by the needs of struggling patients, and we should seek with open minds for ways to help them lead meaningful, dignified lives.’
I am not a scientist. I cannot tell one where biology stops and “nurture” begins.
What I do know, however, is that in the debate surrounding alternative sexual appetites, it is impossible to discount the sociopolitical atmosphere surrounding such “lifestyles” and practices.
Are homosexuals “born that way?” I honestly do not know. What I do know, however, is that society is being pressured at every turn to celebrate and embrace alternative sexual practices as normal and even praiseworthy at a time when we are being divided as a society between those who have assumed the role of “perpetual victim” and those who cling to a sense of traditional values and are derided as some sort of oppressors.
