Gay gene - hypothetically, how would it change your view?


Whilst a genetic cause for homosexuality has not (yet) been found, most homosexual people state that their sexuality is NOT a choice, and many non-homosexual people state that Yes, it is a choice. If a genetic cause for homosexuality (or at least sexuality in general) was found - how would this change your thinking on the matter. I'm not looking for "its a sin" or "they haven't found it..so ner" or anything of the sort - if it were found, how would things change? Would they change?

    Thanks Macteacher. I do understand the 'choice' issue (please see my bio!), I'm merely curious as to how it would change those who think it is a choice opinions if there was a gene identified...and what they think would happen. THanks for you answer

    Interesting The0. However if they found one, would it change how you think of homosexuality?

    Thanks Robert. I think if someone befriended a gay person, it would remove the fear of things they don't understand from it all - reducing the hatred out there. I'm curious to see what comes up though with some of the answers

    Thanks LG. I do agree with you, I'm curious to see if it would make a difference - removing the argument most commonly used against it.
