SO many things are genetic, why wouldn't sexual orientation be? Many personality traits are genetic, it's not only visual physical traits that are genetic.

What about when one family has more homosexuals in it than another family?

It's not simply a preference. Some homosexual people fight their feelings very hard and it cause them extreme anxiety and grief, even leading to suicide. If it was as simple as preferring apples over oranges, I think they would choose to be like everyone else if they are having such a hard time.

apples and oranges

in a more extreme way. Noone can force you to like something even if you want to try.  Maybe it's a personality trait like being open about sexuality that would make families in it come out of the closet. Otherwise, how would you know which people in which families are homosexual?

Maybe it could be genetic, true, but I would vote against that because if whatever we are attracted to is genetic, then explain why my twin sister and I are attracted to totally different types of men- and when I say types, I mean as far as RACE.

As for something even more extreme like transexualism, I think that's psychological.

I read an article stating that sexuality depends on the hormonal balance in the amnion sac whilst in the womb. I don't know how far that's true.

I'm a real fan when it comes to genetics and hereditary- so whatever our genes are responsible for, I can respect but environmental factors play a real huge role.

Maybe it's a bit of both genes and environmental factors- they always seem to come together anyway!!

I don't think homosexuality has anything to do with genes. Are you going to tell me that there are alleles for sexuality? I wont dismiss that possibility but I highly regard that as a preference th ...


You may hold to differ. But scientifically it is true. A part of homo ppl are born with with certian genes drive 'em to be which they're emotionally out of control of the  affection from same gender. This has been proofed & revealed.

Your advice is good, but I lost interest in chatting rooms long time ago, partly because I don't have much free time. As u saw in my post above, that's  just a history. I'm for homosexual rights now and respect them as well.
    As to the expression  "active in sex", i've never seen anyone used that expression before, yet u've got ur point, a reasonable one.

warmsmile & morebanana-
I've seen some pretty sexual things in chatrooms too, by heterosexual people. I once went into a chatroom that was called "Bilingual: French & English" when I was learning French. There was a little bit of sex talk there, but as soon as I left and checked my email, there were about 12 emails all asking for sex or advertising porn sites!!! And I wasn't even in a sex room! I was afraid to go into chat rooms after that.

On homosexuality running in the family - a friend of mine is gay, and so is his sister. Out of 4 kids, 2 of them are gay, and he did NOT grow up in an open household at all! His parents were very strict, and he hid his homosexuality until he moved out of the house, and when he finally told them, his parents disowned him (said "you're not my kid anymore").
Strict vs. open households don't produce/not produce gay kids, but I'm sure they affect when & how the kid comes out with it.

Gay people often come from closed-minded families, those are usually the kids afraid of coming out and who go through the most grief. From knowing gay people, I absolutely believe it is the way they are born. They do not choose it. I do believe that people who are somewhere in the middle can choose which they like for the moment, I mean bisexual people, but I believe they also are born that way, with the tendency to like both sexes (or simply not have a strong preference, therefore like either)

Sure, SOME of it can be conditioned, you can be taught that something is dirty or evil, and grow up agreeing it is dirty or evil, but..... I think sexual preference is too strong of a thing to be "talked into it" (or out of it). There are some Christian groups that say they can change a gay person - make them straight. Ha! They don't work, even when the gay person wants to change. Or it works temporarily, while the gay person has the willpower to force himself to like a woman and maybe even marry her (or vice versa of course), but later the person can't take it anymore and has to be free - free to love the people he loves, not force it or fake it.

No it's not proven yet.. why is it that everytime I talk to ppl about something, they tell me it's proven when it's not.. scientists cant prove anything concrete yet and I'm a science person... if it's not proven with hard eveidence, then I don't believe it. I would not have said what I did, if I was not well read about this subject. They say it could be 30% genetic it could be 70% genetic.. I'm keeping an open-mind about it and even if I'm leaning to other factors, it doesn't mean I'm saying you're wrong. Just don't use lines like "it's been proven" because that's for ppl who just talk too much bout something they know nothing about, do a search on google, click the first thing they read and state them as facts.

Some studies

show that depending on how your parents are with you... determines your sexuality... also, we are all attracted to more than just sex appeal.. we are attracted to personalities etc. In the end, it's the brain we fall in love with right? I also read from a report that esp. during our growing up years, and the position sex is in the world today, ppl tend to link any feeling we have for others as a sexual thing. If homosexuality is a gene, then is it recessive or dominant, and when is it manifested?
