Despite Lady Gaga and her song about being “born this way,” the fact of the matter is that homosexuality is not a genetic trait. There are many sensible reasons why, but I will stick with some of the most obvious ones.
1. Homosexuality is the single worst evolutionary adaptation ever.
There has never been any legitimate science behind the notion of innate homosexuality. However, there is strong evidence that homosexuality is not genetic. If there was a “gay gene,” it would rank somewhere above the “suicide gene” as the worst evolutionary adaption ever; those with a “suicide gene” might at least reproduce before they make their exit. For homosexuals, there are no offspring to speak of. Even if you grant that some might “accidentally” reproduce, the trend would knock any such gene out within a few generations.
What about recessive traits? That is what I meant by “accidental” reproduction. Most recessive genes, like blue eyes, feature a trait that is may get carried on without appearing. However, blue eyes continue in the gene pool because, unlike homosexuality, they do not prevent reproduction. If you draw out or calculate a genealogy tree with homosexual traits in it, you will see that any “gay gene” disappears almost instantly, even as a recessive trait.
2. Homosexuality is just one of many numerous sexual proclivities.
The myriad of sexual behaviors within humans is vast and involves most anything with which someone could think to have sexual relations: inanimate objects of many types, plants, animals, groups of people, groups of animals, etc. For sexuality, if there is a way, there is a will, and someone will inevitably try what most could not imagine.
Jeffery Dahmer, the infamous gay serial killer, spent years trying to turn men into sexual zombie slaves (Although he always failed and killed the men in the process). There are some men who have engaged in cannibalism to fulfill a sexual desire; oddly, there have been such “relationships” that were mutually consensual. There are pedophiles, necrophiles, flashers, peeping toms, and zoophiles, along with countless others, and those are just the ones that are popular enough to have a name for them. Suffice it to say that there are no bounds to sexual appetite, and none of these behaviors is said to be genetic, except homosexuality.
Why would a guy having sex with a man be genetic, while a guy having sex with a horse or a corpse is not? It makes no sense. There are many people, like the former president Bill Clinton, who seem unable to control themselves and their sexual appetite. However, no one believes this to be genetic. We have no philanderer movement to protect their “right” to sleep around.
3. Sexual Orientation is not binary.
If there is a “gay gene,” why do bisexuals exist? If homosexuals are “born that way,” how do people become bisexuals? Do they have the infamous “gay gene” or do they not? The truly odd aspect of the “born that way” line is that it was popularized by the singer, Lady Gaga, who is a self-professed bisexual.
4. Homosexuals frequently switch sexual orientations.
Changes of sexual orientation happen all the time. Some of the more well-known examples of this are Elton John and George Michael. Gay activists will attribute this to sexual repression, but that makes no sense. In particular, George Michael admits that he slept with countless women while he was in the band “Wham!” and that he was sexually attracted to them.
In that same article, George Michael even admits that his environment caused his homosexuality. It is a classic case:
In my case it was a nurture thing, via the absence of my father who was always busy working. It meant I was exceptionally close to my mother. All of my early sexual fantasies were straight and totally readable.
It is from these changes in sexual orientation that some people come see themselves as bisexual.
5. Homosexuality fits a psychological pattern.
The pattern is well-documented: For men it is an absent father and overbearing mother. For women, it is usually an abusive father. We have described these patterns in detail here. You can read George Michael’s description of his situation above. Otherwise, you can listen to Giuseppe Povia’s song “Luca Era Gay” here.
6. Homosexuality fits a social pattern.
Homosexuality, like any other behavior, does not have exactly one cause. In addition to the psychological pattern described above, homosexuality has a social cause that is distinct and direct. Namely, homosexuals tend to be college educated and upper class. Those two factors are closely related.
There are professions that attract homosexuals–men in particular: dancing, fashion design, hair dressers, etc. This can be attributed to the general psychological factors that influence homosexuality. However, there is social pattern of recruitment that exists and is more deliberate.
Universities routinely teach and advocate for homosexuality. Humanities courses encourage homosexuality and sometimes even handout gay porn as course work. The “art” of Robert Mapplethorpe was made known to many outside the university because of the controversy that arose from his work, but there are many other “artists” and “writers” whose “art” likewise encourages homosexuality. The university system has largely been taken over by homosexual activists, particularly the humanities.
7. Homosexuality is promoted for population control.
This last reason addresses the “why” behind the promotion of homosexuality. That is, homosexuality is promoted as biological in order to reduce reproduction. Unfortunately, the victims of this movement are the homosexuals who are convinced that they will remain homosexual because of their genetic makeup and are, consequently, denied the love and support of a family of their own.
The population control movement grew out of the 1960s and 1970s environmental movement. The belief that grew out of that movement enveloped many psychologists who developed a multipronged strategy for reducing birth rates. These involved homosexuality and abortion, as well as many other minor assaults on the family.
In the 1960s, the environmental movement was taking shape with the express view that mankind was the ultimate problem on the face of the Earth. Many scientists wrote environmental tracts to this effect, but none was more prominent and clear than the 1968 book “The Population Bomb,” by Stanford University professor Paul Ehrlich. After that, the environmental celebrated its first “Earth Day” in 1970. A few years later, in 1973, the American Psychiatric Association declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder. That same year, the Supreme Court made legal abortion the law of the land via the “Roe versus Wade” decision.
All of this was deliberate and aimed removing as much of the human race as possible from the face of the Earth. For homosexuals, this political movement is meant to trap them into the “lifestyle” with the mantra that they are “born this way.” For mothers, the feminist objective is to make them see motherhood as so negative that they are willing to kill their babies. Sadly, both of these objectives have left many people in pain with enormous regrets; in fact, “Jane Roe” of “Roe versus Wade” fame came to regret her part in the abortion movement and has spent much of her life fighting to undo the damage that her court decision engendered.
