It bugs the crap out of me.
For some time now, scientists have been looking for a genetic or hormonal cause of sexual orientation. Thus far, no "gay gene" has been found -- at least not in terms of incontrovertible and accepted science. Yet, it is now claimed that a growing body of evidence indicates that biological factors may at least contribute to sexual orientation.
Many of us have figured this out a long time ago without the need of Doctors to tell us. Maybe because we have a deeper understanding of ourselves then most straight people... I know I personally have always believed that gender and sexuality are separate things, and determined at birth. Hence why I am a Transgendered Lesbian.
Of course, not everyone feels this way, and its entirely possible that the theory is wrong.
What makes the sheep "sexual partner preference testing" research so interesting is that the same scientists who are documenting the rather surprising sexual behaviors of male sheep think they can also change the sexual orientation of the animals. In other words, finding a biological causation for homosexuality may also lead to the discovery of a "cure" for the same phenomenon.
Hasn't this already been tried and failed enough times that we'd be tired of thinking this way? Human beings are human beings, not meant to be messed with in the manner they are describing. You'll see why I am horrified at the thought of the kind of 'cure' he's describing.
Homosexual activists have claimed that sexual orientation cannot be changed. What if a hormone patch during pregnancy will do the job?
I shudder every time I read that. They are advocating using hormone treatments to affect the fetus. Does this guy realize, the running theory on why transgendered people exist is because of problems with fetus development relating to hormones. The mind and body develop differently because of over/non exposure to hormones, leading to individuals with the gender of the mind different from the physical gender.
So, in other words, this 'treatment' might create a whole new generation of babies with Gender Dysphoria in some sense. Oh yes, brilliant. Do what the drug companies managed to do unintentionally with their pills over the years.
