Homosexual adoption

WND reports that recent research has shown that children raised in homosexual homes are seven times more likely to develop “non-heterosexual preferences” than other children. The discoveries are apparently also being covered up because they do not fit with the politically correct position, i.e. that homosexuality is hereditary not learned behavior.

I think it’s possible that there is a genetic connection, but I also find it very improbable. As homosexuals generally will not have children, it is unlikely that the genes would be passed on, so eventually they should disappear from the population. If it were a recessive trait carried by heterosexuals, it obviously does not provide a reproductive advantage (in fact, it is a disadvantage reproductively speaking), so you would think it would be selected out in that case as well. The research described in the WND report would seem to support the conclusion that homosexuality is indeed a learned behavior.

    Good thoughts Casey.. something to ponder.. had not thought about the genetics part of the issue.

    A friend of mine remarked, quite truthfully when you think about it, that since homosexuals cannot have children naturally, they would attempt to take ours. By ours I mean children from society at large.

    You see this evidenced in the push to ‘educate’ children as young as 4 in the UK on the ‘diversities’ of humankind’s sexual inclinations, and even in sex education programs at higher levels of education. Of course the superficial reason is pushing acceptance, and letting children think for themselves by providing alternate views.

      Howdy, Isaiah. Long time no see. :) I think we need to be careful not to paint with too wide a brush. Not all homosexuals are militant or even interested in public policy.

    Still doesn’t rule out genetic predisposition. Just pondering here, but from what little I’ve read on the subject, many homosexuals have similar stories regarding childhood. That would tend to support the idea that it is learned, or related to early childhood experiences, somehow. But many heterosexuals have similar childhoods without those effects.

    That has always led me to wonder if it isn’t a combination of genetics and environment.

      Hi Dana,

      I agree, it doesn’t rule out a genetic factor. It could very well be a combination of genetics and environment. I just don’t understand how it would stay in the gene pool, and I disagree with homosexual activists who argue that it is something unchangeable like the color of your skin. I’d say it’s more of a choice like someone predisposed to alcoholism choosing not to become an alcoholic or a person predisposed to obesity choosing to eat healthy and exercise. Succumbing to genetic predispositions is not always good for the individual or society.
