Does the homosexual gene really exist among homosexuals?

This is the statement many homosexuals believe to be true when trying to defend their way of living. Let me start off by affirming that I have nothing against gay men and women and think it is great to know the gender whom one is attracted. However, there is no legitimate evidence that a gay man or woman has a gene that makes them appeal to the same sex. According to some people, homosexuality is a choice of living--"the wrong choice," as many religious and political leaders have argued against on the issue. People used to think it was an issue from nature, and that the environment shaped them into what they were, but since science has reached the point to where anything is excusable, the gene that makes a person gay is used as the biggest reason.

There is debate as to whether sexual orientation is inherited or if it is just a different way to show rebellion. Some scientists have proven that there is, in fact, a specific molecule in a person"s body that is modified to be attracted to the same gender. Despite this fact, most other scientists have done research and tests that claim that there is no such evidence that a gene makes a person a homosexual. It is a choice a person makes, therefore can lead to a lifestyle of a social outcast mostly because people cannot come into terms with people different than them. They are also considered a "religious" degenerate that have been corrupted and do not have a place in society. So if it is not a gene, what is it that makes a person "gay".

As it has been said before, there is not enough research as to whether one could come into a conclusion that there is a gene that makes a person gay. There is, in fact, a hereditary link that may make a child to grow up to be a homosexual. When a child is conceived, there may be more than one trait from a parent that goes into the child. Gay men get most of the trait from their mother, and gay women get it from their father. This makes sense in terms of the gender they are attracted to when they grow up. Therefore, for most homosexuals, it is not their fault, and it was nature that brought them to be like that

In conclusion, it is not a gene that gay men and women have that makes them gay, however it is uncontrollable since it is hereditary. There is no reason to say that a gene makes a person gay, and honestly, gay people should not be judged based on their preferences.

Genes increase and decrease the probability that a person will be or have something and yes, there is a gene that makes it more likely males will be homosexual. Twin Studies are ample evidence that genetics play a big role.
