Born This Way

“But OK, I give up—you win.  It is all genetic. Oh, and by the way, my disapproval of the homosexual lifestyle is also genetic.  I was born that way, I can’t help it, and I did not choose this lifestyle—and I certainly cannot leave it.  So stop your bigotry and intolerance toward me, and accept me for who I am.  My genes made me do it.  Stop forcing me to become who I cannot be.  Learn to embrace diversity.”  Bill Muehlenberg

More “Born That Way” Baloney

Bill Muehlenberg, Culture Watch, June 6, 2013

We have long been accustomed to radical social engineers telling lies to push their agendas. It happens all the time. And the militant homosexual lobby has become Collins2_transcript_pulloutexpert at this very thing. They will look you in the face and tell you a brazen lie, believing, as did Hitler’s propaganda minister, Goebbels, that if you repeat it often enough and loudly enough, some will start to believe it.

One of the biggest lies coming out of their camp is the myth that homosexuality is genetic, that you are born that way, and that you can never change. I of course deal extensively with these falsehoods in my book Strained Relations. There I cite plenty of medical and scientific journals, and many homosexuals as well in rebuttal to these myths.

They all make a compelling case against the “born that way” mantra. Yet despite all the proof to the contrary, the activists keep on running with this bogus claim. They still think Goebbels was right, and they keep hammering away at it.

Consider a new Australian advertising campaign spewing forth these falsehoods. As one report says, “A pregnant woman who is ‘having a lesbian’ stars in a new campaign to promote marriage equality. The billboard, which is also accompanied by a YouTube video titled What R U having?, features a woman baring her pregnant stomach in a hospital bed with the slogan: ‘Congratulations, you’re having a lesbian.’

“The campaign was launched yesterday by Parents & Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLG), while the billboard has been put up in Brisbane at Bowen Hills. The YouTube clip shows the woman getting an ultrasound with her partner beside her as the doctor asks them if they’d like to know what they’re having. ‘You’re having a lesbian,’ the doctor tells the overjoyed parents.

“The campaign’s theme is that: ‘Any child can be born gay. So marriage equality is every family’s issue.’ Spokeswoman for PFLG Shelley Argent told News Limited the campaign was designed to build support for gay marriage on the grounds that gay children were ‘born that way’. ‘Being a lesbian or gay is not a choice,’ she said. ‘It’s just the way you are.’ Billboard giant GOA has donated space for the ads in Queensland, the report said. GOA managing director Chris Tyquin said he would ask interstate billboard companies to donate space as well.”

So, we have here more blatant lies from the militants, and a billboard company up to its ears in this deliberate deception. But as I mentioned in my book, twins’ studies prove what a lie this is. I wrote there:

“Studies on twins in fact make it perfectly clear that there can be no genetic basis for homosexuality. As one researcher in the field explains, ‘Identical twins have identical genes. If homosexuality was a biological condition produced inescapably by the genes (e.g. eye color), then if one identical twin was homosexual, in 100% of the cases his brother would be too. But we know that only about 38% of the time is the identical twin brother homosexual. Genes are responsible for an indirect influence, but on average, they do not force people into homosexuality. This conclusion has been well known in the scientific community for a few decades’.”

That particular expert is New Zealand researcher Dr Neil Whitehead. He has written extensively on these matters, including his important 1999 book, My Genes Made Me Do It! (Harvest House). He is still working closely on these matters, and a helpful update to his invaluable work has recently appeared.

Here is how one write-up discusses this new research: “Eight major studies of identical twins in Australia, the U.S., and Scandinavia during the last two decades all arrive at the same conclusion: gays were not born that way. ‘At best genetics is a minor factor,’ says Dr. Neil Whitehead, PhD. Whitehead worked for the New Zealand government as a scientific researcher for 24 years, then spent four years working for the United Nations and International Atomic Energy Agency. Most recently, he serves as a consultant to Japanese universities about the effects of radiation exposure. His PhD is in biochemistry and statistics.

“Identical twins have the same genes or DNA. They are nurtured in equal prenatal conditions. If homosexuality is caused by genetics or prenatal conditions and one twin is gay, the co-twin should also be gay. ‘Because they have identical DNA, it ought to be 100%,’ Dr. Whitehead notes. But the studies reveal something else. ‘If an identical twin has same-sex attraction the chances the co-twin has it are only about 11% for men and 14% for women.’

“Because identical twins are always genetically identical, homosexuality cannot be genetically dictated. ‘No-one is born gay,’ he notes. ‘The predominant things that create homosexuality in one identical twin and not in the other have to be post-birth factors.’ Dr. Whitehead believes same-sex attraction (SSA) is caused by ‘non-shared factors,’ things happening to one twin but not the other, or a personal response to an event by one of the twins and not the other.

“For example, one twin might have exposure to pornography or sexual abuse, but not the other. One twin may interpret and respond to their family or classroom environment differently than the other. ‘These individual and idiosyncratic responses to random events and to common environmental factors predominate,’ he says.”

The rest of the article is well worth reading. And in case you think this is all just theory, consider the recent “outing” of NBA basketball star Jason Collins. He dumped his long-standing fiancé to proclaim his homosexuality. Oh, and he has a twin brother – who is not homosexual:

But leave it to the militants to not just seek to deconstruct society, but seek to deconstruct truth and biology as well. After all, when you are pushing a radical agenda, you can’t let mere trifles like truth and biology get in your way.
