It's a heavily debated topic whether homosexuals are born this way or not. A lot of arguments over their rights hinge on this factor.

My question is: why is this important and relevant for homosexual rights? Let's say a homosexual came out and said he wasn't born this way. He says that over the course of puberty he developed to become attracted to the same sex.

What rights would he lose out on that homosexuals who were born homosexual would still be entitled to have?

The point of my two questions was to find out if you had evidence to support the claims you made earlier. It is clear at this point that you don't.

For all that I've done in science, I must be allowed to utter this by suspicion. Clearly, torture against babies occur, but what exactly are the effects on them, before and after? I can't see that this question is so easily answered and most certainly one can not go about torturing babies to find out either (because evil in the name of science is banned by criminal law and for ethical/moral concerns if nothing else).

Well I don't know about babies but the experiment has already been performed on young people. You might have heard of "conversion therapy" and its abysmal record.

It WAS heavily debated before we stopped judicially killing homosexuals. I think it is not hard to see that one's orientation can be in one direction or in another or anywhere in between. Human beings demonstrate this. It seems simplistic and silly to suggest that David bumped his head and because homosexual.


Western society (we might as well forget others, where homosexuals can be thrown from tall buildings or kept in prison) has been remarkably cruel, as with Alan Turing. If homosexuals now have rights undreamt of by people who suffered in the past, then it is a wrong partially righted.

I think it is important to accept that homosexuals are what they are and possibly have been for as long as they were able to determine. The only people this seems to bother are religious folk fighting on behalf of divine prejudice.
