Could this be a reason some people are gay?


Not saying there is anything wrong about been gay. But we know gay is usually result of psychology, meaning with right psychologist's help any gay can turn straight and straight person can turn gay. But last year there was report of a once little boy turn into a girl in teens, turn out him/her, got XX chromosome, but due to odd reason, can't release female hormone till teen. As a child, he/she was always a girl trap in boy body. It got me thinking, is it possible some gay ain't psychology, but XX who can't release female hormone or XY that can't release male hormone? Should we test the theory?

    Thanks, base on what I see here, obviously some gay have lower them self to CC(CatholicChurch) standard, who bully them.CC has a history of attack anything against CC political view and try force upon people. (e.g. science, evolution, other religion)

    Isn't it amazing how people form these 'set in stone' opinions of homosexuality? WTF? Believing in old wives tales and superstition about sexuality is the most damaging thing to happen to people.

    The political issue surrounding gays in western world, is product of Catholic church wanting to persecute gays. This question, look for academic discussion on why are people gay or straight. Please refrain from bringing in Catholic vs gay war.

    I have, eg there are men who find them self attracted to men cause, desire for sexual companionship, but lack of women(eg some people turn gay in prison, but straight after leaving) or fear of women (eg China Emperor Liou Ean 210BC-188BC,)

    Tess, No one is born Gay, is there GAY genes? In Biology, genetic expressions are timed, meaning not all genes are expressed at the same time. What happened if the testis in three months old baby is functional? testosterone is active, adult penis?

    There are very few studies into this till recently, so academic knowledge of the topic is limited, We know personality is DNA + environment. So, we know there are at least, 2 main factor relate to why people are straight or gay.

    But DNA default personality is still psychology, its how biology influence mind, thus, psychology. And there are record of psychology been alter from default setting, especially amount transexuals.(Gay DO NOT need to alter mind to be straight)

    I think its possible, I've seen gay men, who claim their gayness is contribute by childhood trauma with other sex. I don't think all people would turn gay as result, cause 50% personality is DNA and 50% environment, but I think it apply to some.

    Do you need an anatomy lesson? Why do you think that it is "awesome" to produce babies? Love between people isn't about reproduction. It's about sharing your life together.
