What percentage of homosexuals do you think are born that way? in Footballguys Free For All Posted February 22, 2010 You'll probably have to be less vague if you are opposed to some specific rights for homosexuals or something.Anyway, the answer is no, it wouldn't matter to me. Why would it? If someone was born homosexual, or they "became" homosexual because of some childhood experience (which I wouldn't characterize as "damage" fwiw) what difference should that make in terms of their rights and protections under the law? They're still homosexual, either way.This is like asking what percentage of handicapped people were born that way, and what percentage became handicapped because of some childhood accident. What difference would that make in terms of the rights they deserve as an adult?I undestand IE, not sure how old you are and I'm not talking down to you but the gay rights movement in the late 80s/early 90s was predicated on them being born that way. If you said it was a choice they attacked you. And all I'm saying is that there is a difference between a genetic gene of some kind and turning out that way because of influences both good and bad that one experinces in their lives. Forget the rights IE, I'm not against any of that really I'm not. But I am interested in the psychology of the whole thing. The part I don't want to get into in this thread is the relative newness and changing fields of psychology. That "science" is constantly changing and I am interested in the link psychologically in a person becoming homosexuality due to events as they were children. Can you understand that or no?Sure, if you just think it's interesting to wonder whether people are born gay or become gay, I totally understand that. But you're the one who's brought up the rights aspect twice now, which makes me believe there's more to your question. Homosexuality isn't a choice. That's a ridiculous argument invented by people with an antihomosexual agenda. The only question is whether they are born gay or become gay. I agree that's an interesting question but it has nothing to do with equal rights or anything.
