I am sharing this article because I am so tired of people I know saying being gay is a choice and wondering how children can know their own sexuality when they have not really experienced life or sex.
I knew when I was a kid that I liked boys, especially Michael Jackson 🙂
If you are gay and living life as if you are a straight person, that is a choice. Sometimes it’s good to close the Bible and give other books, research and facts a chance.
Scientists have found evidence to support the existence of a male genome which may influence homosexuality.
Dr Michael Bailey, from Northwestern University, studied 400 sets of twins to determine if some men are genetically inclined to be gay.
The study identified two areas on the male genome which appear to be linked to sexuality.
Bailey said: “Sexual orientation has nothing to do with choice. Our findings suggest there may be genes at play and we found evidence for two sets that affect whether a man is gay or straight.”
Researchers took blood from 409 homosexual brothers and heterosexual members of their family. It is known that siblings share around 50 per cent of their DNA, but it is possible they have a chance of sharing genes associated with sexual orientation.
While the findings revealed genetics accounted for around 30% to 40% of a man’s sexuality, the rest was based on social and environmental factors.
