Can parents make their kids gay?


Is it responsible parenting to intentionally influence a child to be homosexual, or is it homophobic to disagree with this practice?

    I see SmartAndFun, by doing so, you preserve the child's ability to choose sexual orientation on their own.

    Hello win-winresourses. Social paradigms are shifting currently, as norms regarding parenting and sexual orientation evolve. Touchy subject for sure. PWIV

    Idk you well enough to decipher your snarkiness yet My2GreenBeans. Perhaps straightness is a learned behavior reinforced by speciic gender boundaries set by parents.

    I do not believe there is any scientific evidence, much less proof, that any "gay gene" has been identified. If people are more comfortable living a certain lifestyle - so be it. But to attribute it to genetics is probably mistaken.

    That's ok, I guess I didn't fully answer your questions. IMHO, I believe it is irresponsible to try to "make" a child either gay or straight; I believe it is something you are born with and is not a choice. I certainly didn't choose to be hetero.
