    It will open up a new can of worms in the abortion debate.

    well if they are good parents, it wouldn't matter. they know their child might be gay when its born, so, if they can't handle that chance, they shouldn't be having kids.

    I think it would be alot easier raising a homosexual child, since I would know what they would be going thru (most likely) in their teens.

    The amount of time, energy and $$ I spend trying to recruit males into being a homosexual will go down drastically? :dunno:

    They are already heading down this path. The genetic designer baby companies hit the public eye about 6 years ago. As it stands, you can select hair grade, hair color, eye color, sex, height, options for 'heightened metabolism' (thinner child/person), and an option for 'increased levels of testosterone' (which they claim lead to a more 'athletic' child/person).

    This is one of the final topics I looked at in college, but I was very interested in what would happen if or when they discover the 'gay gene'...

    I'd care more if they could tell me if my child was going to be a murderer, rapist, child molester or some other kind of truly sick sociopathic individual.

    That's impossible. Due to the nature of our bodies, I don't believe anyone is born gay. Maybe some people are more "inclined" to be gay, but you can't say a child will be gay any more than you can say he'll be racist or successful or fat.

    those test result are never acurate. it's all about how you raise your kid and whom he or she hangs out with.

    If being gay was determined by socialization, then you could become ungay through will power and determination, the same way people kick a bad habit. And we've all seen how well that works in the Christian "we can turn you straight" groups.

    Eventually science will prevail and they will be able to determine where an unborn child will fall on the sexual continuum. It's all a matter of time.

    I call your :rolleyes: and raise you another. IMHO homosexuality is not innate and contradicts the fundamental laws of nature. But to each his own...

    That's just fine then. We all know about opinions. :noes: Perhaps some actual research will change your humble opinion into an educated conclusion.

    I agree with you that it contradicts the laws of nature. However, keep in mind, that in the past, we have discovered phenomena that contradict the laws of nature, as we know them / have written them, and, is an attraction to blonde hair, or an attraction to blue eyes, or an attraction to larger women over petite women, contradict laws of nature?

    No. Homosexuality may contradict the laws of nature based upon reproduction and the continuation of the species, but it is an attraction - just like being attracted to blonde hair, or brown eyes over blue eyes. It isn't some conscious decision.

    Last but not least, who's to say that homosexuality isn't part of Mother Nature's Checks and Balances system to control population overgrowth?

    So, do you believe that people are born heterosexual?

    ...where are these laws written? Because some would argue that there is a big misunderstanding in the interpretation of such laws. Some would go as far as to argue that homosexuality is in fact nature's way of controlling population. And for ensuring supportive homes for unwanted children.

    ...... I am touching this briefly due to.... "Respect".... IMO I think that there is predisposition written into our genetics. This does include our likeliness of addiction and homosexuality and such. Is it completely genetics fault, probably not, but is there a significant basis for it in genetics? I think yes.

    (BTW the goes against natures laws... is bunk due to the fact no one can show that these laws are in fact true. It is like saying the rain falls so that grass can grow, and that is an actual example from the original viewpoint of natural laws.)

    I don't think it is very scientific to think that genes can determine sexual preference. That is mainly something developed, considering I didn't decide to be Bi until mid-teens, and on a philosophical basis. You don't just realize you can't like girls, or vice versa. You see many people switch preferences due to bad experiences, does that make them not a "true" homosexual? You don't see guys with Edwards syndrome constantly being gay? There isn't a gene for a personality trait, I think it is ludicrous to say that there is, when sexual preference is obviously something very subjective to the individual.

    JMO though.
