Author and activist Ryan Sorba recently released an undercover video showing “gays” freely contradicting prevailing dogma on the subject of homosexualityclaims Benny Huang.
“Do you believe being gay is strictly genetic?” Sorba asked. The responses he received certainly didn’t carry the Dan Savage seal of approval.
… When asked if “being gay” was strictly genetic, [one man] said it was not. “The thing is, I was never gay. Now I am, and I’m proud. I am who I am now.” When Sorba asked another man, “So you believe you became gay from the culture?” he responded, “Yeah, but I’m proud of it.” An older man declared categorically that “None of us were born gay.”
… The idea that people choose homosexuality, or that it might be the result of negative environmental factors such as sexual trauma, is often portrayed as the ramblings of clueless straight people who are almost uniformly religious and uncomfortable with modern science; people like Michele Bachman and Ben Carson, for example. How odd it is then to hear homosexuals talking very much like Ben Carson, or at least admitting that he’s right.
This just in: sex is a volitional behavior. How anyone can be shocked this revelation is beyond me.
… Why is the genetic basis of homosexuality so important? Plenty of homosexuals will admit that the “born that way” message carries certain political benefits that are just too important to forgo. Dr. Lillian Faderman, a professor of lesbian literature, let slip an inconvenient truth in the pages of The Advocate, a homosexual newspaper. “The concept of gay and lesbian identity may be nothing but a social construct,” she wrote, “but it has been crucial, enabling us to become a political movement and demand the rights that are due to us as a minority. What becomes of our political movement if we openly acknowledge that sexuality is flexible and fluid, that gay and lesbian does not signify ‘a people’ but rather a ‘sometime behavior’?”
