Posted in Are People Born Gay? (Poll for Straights and Gays) on 2010-04-23 19:43:10

In actual fact there are plenty of recorded cases of homosexuality among animals, and across a broad range of species in the wild. This does tend to differ from humans, though, in that in most cases it does not seem to be permanent, and these 'homosexual' animals will have heterosexual sex when the circumstances change. So therefore they do have instinctual heterosexual drives intact, which does not seem to be the case with most gay humans (and I should know as I am one)

  • In a HIGH proportion of cases, homo/bi sexuality is the result of an inborn genetic configuration. There are a number of different genetic configurations (perhaps 2 or 3 possible suspects at least) which can cause the same effect; (each of which exist in a completely different area of the human genome) but any one of those can cause a homosexual or bisexual brain-development at the foetal stage of a persons development. (ie before birth)

It seems that these genetic codes can influence hormones (pre-birth) to cause a feminisation in the development of the brain (in males) or masculinisation of the brain in the case of gay girls. Totally different genes are responsible for gay girls, from the ones that are responsible for gay guys. When the baby is born, their hormonal levels will be normal for that gender (although they may have been abnormal at the fetal stage).

However it isnt always genes that create homosexuality. Some people who DONT have the 'gay genes' can still be gay because other biological factors effect the bre-birth development of the brain. For instance boys who have many older brothers can SOMEtimes be born gay (though certainly not necessarily so of course) because the mothers biology can sometimes be effected by all the previous male births and causes some kind of feminisation of the foetal male babies brain development.

Even if you dont have older brothers (or if you arent male) OTHER prebirth biological factors can cause the same effects.

To further complicate things, its all a bit different with females (to some extent).

This is because a POTENTIAL for bisexuality is much much more common, almost the norm for females,(though not in all cases) especially youngish females. and it seems that with many females it is more possible to make choices, to be influenced by peers (who may be lesbian or bi) or as rebellion, or just because they are fed up with males and want a change. This potential flexibilty seems to be nigh on impossible for an awful lot of males - I would say the majority (and impossible for quite a few females too).

Whether male or female, if you have been born with a brain that is rigidly hetero or rigidly homo, then you really can do nothing to alter these feelings and predispositions.

Only those who are born bisexual, are able to create the impression that they are making choices, or are being influenced, which as I say, is a much more common thing amongst females than with males.

My answer. - In a HIGH proportion of cases, homo/bi sexuality is the result of a genetic configuration. A number of different genetic configurations (perhaps 2 or 3 possible suspects at least) can be the cause; (each of which exist in a completely different area of the human genome) but any one of them can cause a homosexual or bisexual brain development at the foetal stage of a persons development. (ie before birth)

It seems that these genetic codes can influence hormones (pre-birth) to cause a feminisation in the development of the brain (in males) or masculinisation of the brain in the case of gay girls. Once the baby is born, the brain sex-orientation will have been developed, but by that time, the hormones will be perfectly normal. Totally different genes are responsible for gay girls, from the ones that are responsible for gay guys.

However it isnt always genes. Some people who DONT have the 'gay genes' can still be gay because other biological factors effect the bre-birth development of the brain. For instance boys who have many older brothers can SOMEtimes be born gay (though certainly not necessarily so of course) because the mothers biology can sometimes be effected by all the previous male births and causes some kind of feminisation of the foetal male babies brain development.

One of the reasons why it is difficult to put a percentage on it, is that 'gay' is difficult to define. (The definition of) Homosexual blurs at the edges imperceptably into bisexual and then blends gradually into straight, - so where do you put the dividing line.? You probably know, of course, that a very high percentage of gay people have had sex with the opposite gender at least once and often more than that. To measure something that fades out at the edge is really an impossibility, like trying to measure a nebulous bank of cloud with a measuring tape. Even if you were to only include people who have NEVER experienced sex with opposite gender, it wouldn't be very meaningful as there are actually so FEW people in that category that the figure would be laughably small (maybe less than 1%), and frankly almost meaningless and misleading. It stands to reason that those who have experienced sex with the opposite gender (if they are male) must surely have been able to achieve an erection with a girl/woman, which is something that some gays would find almost impossible in the first place. Quite clearly there are shades of gay. And then there are people quite adamantly calling themselves gay (and within their rights to do so) rather than bi, who have been married (and then divorced) for many years and have had kids. SO, - should these people too be included in the statistics for gay percentages or in the statistics for bi percentages??? There is no obvious answer to that.

Yes - a thorough range of survey questions there. - You have, as you said, tried to think of every permutation you could think of, - but rather than just including 'gay but disgusted by staightness' you could have included 'gay and repelled by women', not by straightness, as you could in fact be very attracted to straight men, but totally averse to females. A similar situation can apply with lesbians who are repelled by men.
