I was at your book signing and I think you are the most tnelated author ever! Stephen King could take lessons from you! You need to bring your book tour to Chicago because your books would fly off the shelves!

You, like all of the other responders cliignng to your science, keep asking where is the science that proves homosexuality ISN'T a choiceless result of natural forces at work. In the interest of rhetorical purity, and also in the interest of science, show US the proof of your science that homosexuality is genetic, in utero, or whatever term you want to use to qualify your born this way argument.As someone in science, even I know strongly suggests doesn't prove a thing. And let me know when one of your studies have been submitted to jury of it's peers (geneticists, neurological science, etc.), because to date, none of them have been critically reviewed. If anything, they have shrouded in mystery. Telling someone, these are the results of my study, oddly, doesn't make it so. Results have been paraded around, brought out with much bally-ho, yet with no in-depth study of the how those results were found (or created), except perhaps by those with a vested interest in the results being true. When one of these studies are submitted to, and approved for publication (which STILL doesn't mean the science isn't flawed) in Lancet, NEJMS or Nature, then perhaps I'll start paying attention born this way argument The btw argument has an inherent flaw in it, in that it attempts to justify itself itself in the face of a societal present day moral imperative. Being gay shouldn't have to justify itself. Who you have sex with should not fundamentally change your rights. And by claiming gosh folks, we can't help it, we're born this way, now give us our rights the same way you would any other flawed human you're accepting the moral imperative . Instead of demanding, screw that, who I sleep with is no business of yours, nor should it have anything to do with my rights.

No one knows for sure whether we were lilaerlty born with our sexual orientation, and no one knows for sure to what extent, if anything, genetics or epigenetics plays a role in a tendency to either be gay at birth or become gay if certain environmental cues are present. But, having a background in genetics including human genetics, I think the evidence is pretty overwhelming that there is at least SOME contribution to at least a tendency to become gay, straight, or bi.But we will NEVER know these things, if people who clearly misunderstand modern human genetics are allowed to shut down the conversation in the way this author does. For example, just because a trait is only recognized by scientists in modern times doesn't mean it wasn't present in ancient times. Another example, is that just because a phenotype doesn't always include all aspects of the trait (in this case, finger length ratios), doesn't mean that the two are unrelated. This well known phenomenon is known as incomplete penetrance , is evident even in some of the most genetically simple traits. Genetically complex traits, such as multi-locus traits and epigenetic phenomena, only complicate the picture further. And to say that scientists aren't studying the genesis of heterosexuality is to ignore the vast majority of genetical and endocrinological research regarding sex and sexuality. Just because the author claims there is no research on heterosexuality doesn't make it so. It is simply that most of those studies take heterosexuality to be normative.The science of sexuality is hampered by an inability to precisely determine who has which traits. Societal pressures to conform, and perhaps other sociological phenomena,have limited our ability to determine the actual biological contribution to ones sexual orientation, and the ability of subsequent influences to modify it. This is a huge hindrance, which likely will mean that good animal models will have to be developed first, then applied to the human situation.

what people do with their ptviare parts is of no concern to me. and even if it is a choice that they make what difference does it make? is it that important to the value of your life that you are fully aware when and where your neighbor sticks his junk? or if the chick across the street likes to scissor? if it is that important well that is just sad.

Good to hear that you're approaching 2010 with a hetalhy mindset man. (:I've decided to go ahead and post that review of ALT I wrote for you a while back on my blog and try and get as many people to link/RT to it as possible. It's part of my commitment to try and read as many self-published books this year. (I just talked to you about this after writing this, so yeah, ignore that bit! )Anyway, here's to new starts, good habits, and completion. Cheers!

jun28Martin La verdad qrieuo apoyar al partido libertario, pero si ponen ese video con orgullo en su pagina, me hacen dudar. Es un video con falacias logicas, usos de semanticos pocos claros, mensajes casi religiosos. Por hay con un poco de mas explicacion, zafa, pero como es el video, me da verguenza ajena.Estoy intentando conseguir gente que se afilie al partido, pero voy a tratar de que nunca lleguen a este video.

Even without the data, the idea that somenoe could decide to be attracted to a sex other than the one they are naturally attracted to is ludicrous.Honestly, a lot of ignorant statements are made in R S, but without a doubt, one of the most ignorant is that people choose their sexual orientation.Thanks for the data, anyway. It's factual, but won't convince anyone whose mind is already made up and shut tighter than Fort Knox. (Which includes those who, in the face of evidence, respond with the oh so original Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve . as if that somehow refutes the evidence.)
