Quote# 51954

No scientific study has positively discovered and isolated the so-called "gay gene". But even if a genetic predisposition toward homosexuality were found, the choice to act on those urges would still reside with the individual. That's why rapists and pedophiles are not relieved of responsibility for their actions merely because they, along with all humans, are genetically determined to be sexual creatures, whether heterosexual or homosexual.

Translation: There is no evidence that people are born gay and even if there was I would ignore it.

Except homosexuality doesn't harm anyone! Fuck! Pedophilia traumatizes a child, rape harms the one being raped, but homosexuality is just two men, or two women who love each other.

Consent, fucker! Children can't give consent, and rape victims don't!

Maybe you wouldn't be rejected so often if you were less of a dickhead.

Rapists and paedophiles are still generally either gay or straight you muppet. The age of who they fancy and how they go about getting sex is not genetic.

You're obviously genetically predisposed to be stupid, we don't see you choosing not to act on those urges, do we?

"No scientific study has positively discovered and isolated the so-called "gay gene". "

Fundie fails science.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biology_and_sexual_orientation
For example, a recent meta-study by Hershberger (2001)[8] compares the results of eight different twin studies: among those, all but two showed MZ twins having much higher concordance of sexual orientation than DZ twins, suggesting a non-negligible genetic component. Two additional examples: Bailey and Pillard (1991) in a study of gay twins found that 52% of monozygotic (MZ) brothers and 22% of the dizygotic (DZ) twins were concordant for homosexuality.[9] Also, Bailey, Dunne and Martin (2000) used the Australian twin registry to obtain a sample of 4,901 twins.[10] Self reported zygosity, sexual attraction, fantasy and behaviours were assessed by questionnaire and zygosity was serologically checked when in doubt. MZ twin concordance for homosexuality was found to be 30%.

"That's why rapists and pedophiles are not relieved of responsibility for their actions merely because they, along with all humans, are genetically determined to be sexual creatures, whether heterosexual or homosexual. "

Fundie fails common sense.

We need to stop legislating against genetics.
Genetics will always win over laws!

RAPISTS AND PEDOPHILES ACTUALLY FUCKING HARM PEOPLE YOU FUCKING TWIT!

I'm so sick of hearing this BS. Do these dipshits not understand the term consent or do they just not want to?

11/11/2008 4:45:43 PM



Apparently Rejected Dreams has also rejected dictionaries. Read the definitions of homosexual, pedophile, rape, CONSENT, sexual, and heterosexual before showing you really don't know what they mean.

Little things like "facts" and "proper definitions" get in the way of their diatribes. They work around them when they can.

But that's not important right now.

See, homosexuality doesn't hurt anyone, quite unlike pedophilia and rape.

So, regardless of all this nature, genetics, choice, whatever BS you keep throwing around, I maintain that homosexuality is acceptable for people who consent to it.

11/11/2008 5:02:01 PM



So how likely is it that sexual orientation is controlled by a single gene, anyway?

Yeah, I don't think there ever will be a single "gay gene".

11/11/2008 5:17:53 PM



the choice to act on those urges would still reside with the individual.

So you could choose not to be attracted to members of the opposite sex?

That's why rapists and pedophiles are not relieved of responsibility for their actions merely because they, along with all humans, are genetically determined to be sexual creatures

Biiiig difference between homosexuality and rape/pedophilia. Hint: one involves consent between BOTH parties.

Following Mr. Spak: The genetic variance component of the phenotypic variance in sexual preference (hetero/homosexual) is not zero. But literally speaking, RejectedDreams is right. No one has found a gay gene. However, I would point out that no one has found the so-called "dumb gene" either: however, RejectedDreams is still a congenital idiot.

Still doesn't give any reason why being gay would be morally wrong.

First off, it's most likely a number of genes that influence orientation -- there is no, one, definitive "gay gene".

Secondly, rapos and pedos *HURT* people, by having intercourse *without consent*.

Hi, I'm asexual.

Just blew your mind, didn't I?

Yes, but here's the thing: rapists and pedophiles hurt people. Gays don't. Fucking hell, why is that so hard for you people to understand?
