Born Homosexual

Updated on March 28, 2010

Are People Born Gay?

Some people do not believe that anyone is born gay. Scientists even say, there is no scientifically accepted evidence proving that homosexuals are born gay. Eventhough scientists do not believe there is any scientific evidence that people are born gay, they believe many homosexuals believe they were in fact born gay. Since homosexuals believe they were born this way, they believe this is normal, therefore they do not have to feel any personal responsibility for the way they live their life.

Most people that believe in the Bible believe that homosexuality is wrong and no one is born this way. They believe that if scientists one day prove that homosexuality is biological influenced, it is still wrong and engaging in homosexual acts is immoral. According to the Bible, heterosexuals are commanded to abstain from sex unless we are married. Therefore, eventhough many homosexuals believe they were born gay, they also have the capability to abstain from their desires. This leads me to a question. If homosexuals are legally married according to our laws, is engaging in homosexual acts between the two married partners still wrong?

After listening to all the different views about whether people are born gay or not, I still do not know what to think. I grew up with two people, one two years older than I am and the other a year younger than I am, both were either born gay or they got that way soon after they were born. They were playing with dolls, in playhouses, wearing girl clothes and doing everything that girls do, while we were playing marbles and ball.

This is something that really confused me about these guys. One of them remained openly gay until his death, but the other, to the best of my knowledge, made a complete turnaround in his life. After he grew into an adult and moved from his hometown, he got married to a woman and he and his wife had two children before his death. How did he manage to make this transition in his life if he was born gay? Maybe he was born bisexual instead of homosexual, but this leads me to another question. Do you believe people are born bisexual?

      Hey Right Black - If you could be so kind as to answer one question for us and this forum. When did you choose to be straight? I've made choices in my life, some good, some not so good... Let me tell you, I did not choose to be gay.

      On the other hand, I'm on the fence when it comes to the "nature or nurture" theory. Is it possible that I became gay because I had only females who influenced me? It's possible. But than I would be placing blame. I'm not sure that I would choose to do that. What I have chose to do, is to accept that "it is what it is" and I'm not going to be able to change anything. I know that my kids, family and friends love me, for who I am and not who I choose to have a relationship with. They're only concerned for my happiness and I'm so thankful for that.

      Read my brief response to find your answers to this question. My hub: Are people born gay? That really is not a difficult question for people who are informed.

      Interesting hub. I beleive that homosexuality is a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

      This is a good opinion, actually this is what I think. I do not think people are born gay, I believe they got this way soon after they were born.

      keywc58, interesting questions. I think that sexual preference (which is different from gender) is a choice. Gender is the way one is born, therefore, it is only logical to say that if one is homo or bi-sexual one chooses. You may choose at a very early age to follow after the pattern of the most dominate figure in the household or maybe you admire your sister (if you are male) but at some point you choose. I had a friend in high school who I later found out was gay who told me ten years later that he wanted a wife like I had. He made a choice. This is my opinion only but if science could find any evidence of a homosexual gene, believe me they would.
