My thoughts on this topic:

When your born you have no knowledge and understanding of sexuality - your a blank canvas. You grow up and certain shades of colour are applied, Your personality shapes your drawing and your choices affect your final outcome - You have a rough idea along the way what you want the end result to be.

going through puberty your emotions come into play and then you choose to understand them/ or supress depending on who you are - society will either supress you (earley 80's cough) or will support you, like a young child if you support them in something they usually discover there own ways and feel proud of there acheivements.

Your sexuality is really a journey not something your born with - you didnt come out your mothers womb thinking "Hmmm what should i do? wear the pink top or the blue hmmm" Your just kinder nutured and given it - you then later on in life make your decisions based upon those teachings.

The best part is your all different and theres a little part of you that only understands your journey - thats why people are proud of there selfs gay/straight/bi what ever label you want to put on it. Its all a journey - and the only facts i have to back it up are my own personal ones but i dont wish to discuss those.

If people are born with homosexual tendencies, that somewhat suggests it is a genetic mental disorder.

people are born bi since at since a young age you dont really know about anything so you really dont care >.>

I`m going to go with, its something that happens during puberty .

Either way, you don't just wake up one day and decide that " you know what , I think i could go for a nice big man part , thats weird." Most gays don't even figure it out until their late teens , and sometimes not even until old age.

Either way, no point in discussing what causes it it, It not like its cancer .

We are our own creators, makers of the lives we must life, and there is no one to forgive but ourselves.

^^; sorry. No, your not born anything. You chose to become whatever makes you happy.

It's not genetic, so it's not inborn....

That's an interesting contention, but I feel that because we are talking about sexual urges, which usually don't develop until puberty, it's somewhat invalid.

I'd say mostly biological/nature.

One of my homegirls is gay and she believes there is some sort of biological cause for homosexuality. Her reasoning? "Why would anyone logically want to be bi or gay in such a discriminating world?"

She hangs out with a lot of the "down people" (aka gay people...term used in Seattle) and says that most of the gay people she hangs out with agrees.

& if you use the "survival of the fittest" theory, ask yourself what would make humans want to behave in a such a way where they cannot biologically and "naturally" reproduce children of their own.

I don't necessarily think there is a "gay gene" in people, but I do agree that for whatever reason at birth, there is an excess of some hormones/testosterone that make people the way they are.

Also in my Asian American Studies class, a writer whose name I cannot remember brought up a good point in one of her poems.

Simply put, she loved girls, loved their bodies, before she even knew what the term lesbianism was.

no its a decision you make
Posted 9/16/07
well i think its a decision, however in an article i read once it said that i guy with a certain amount of older brothers will in fact increase the % of chance that the person will be gay (cant remember exact stats) but the theory didn't work out because if it did a guy with 12 older brothers has more than a 100% chance of being gay

Honestly, I think it's something that people are born with, not by their personal choices. But that's just my opinion. There's one gay guy, he has been open with his sexuality since he's a child and they kept sending him to hetero camp but it didn't work because he ended up having sex with half of male barracks. I don't doubt that some people may switch their sexuality on their choices but most of the time, it's something that they're born with. It has happen since ancient times.
