homosexuality is a genetic disorder

i'm not arguing it is or is not natural, cause you could argue it's the way nature made em. but if homos were functioning they way they were suppose to, they would be attracted to the opposite sex. people with down syndrome dont pretend they aren't disordered. anaology applies to homos. look at their genitals, that indicates they are suppose to mate with the opposite sex and implies be attracted.

People can be attracted to anything, and I mean anyone at that. If homosexuality really was a genetic disorder, chances are it would be a whole lot less common, as it would have to be a specific mutation each time. Homosexuality would have very little chance of surviving the gene pool as they aren't attracted to- and probably will not mate with- the opposite sex.

The way I see it anyone can be attracted to anything or anyone, but to actually love someone and stay in a committed relationship, they have to actively choose to over and over. That is perhaps my biggest qualm with the idea of lgbt, they treat love as a feeling which shows they often mistake infatuation with love.

None of this is genetic, it simply shows confusion, and no wonder as to why too. Many spent their life being told that they have to like certain things, girls should like pink and barbies and boys should like trucks and army men, which puts the idea in their mind that if they like something that doesn't go with their biological gender, they must not be.

A lack of strong parental figures who love each other for good no matter what, can also confuse some.

Or low self esteem, and trying to kinda just be someone else.

Possibly even just experiencing infatuation as a teenager, and not knowing it's different than love.

homos aren't common. less than ten percent have the deviance. but even if you thought that was high it isn't, as we can see with so many people with all kinds of diseases and disorders, such as poor vision, or whathaveyou.

i dont know what your point is with the infatuation v love tangent. and all that other stuff. if you are saying it's not a disorder but they are just confused, that could be true but it isn't a very good argument against my general thesis.

Con

Ten percent is a high number, ten percent means one out of ten, which is very high for a genetic disorder.

Out of genetic diseases cystic fibrosis is the most common. According to the Boomer Esiason Foundation "one in every 31 Americans " are carriers of the defective CF gene, but do not have the disease." Much much less actually have the disease.

Autism, which I consider genetic (But not a defect, it has a real reason and point to exist in the gene pool, society would be nothing without it), is between one in sixty eight and one in a hundred of the population.

Being sexually attracted to your own gender has no reason to exist in the gene pool, and would naturally die out, if it was truly genetic, it would almost purely happen out of a random genetic mutation, and besides the commonness going way down, it would also likely come most commonly with other affects including likely intellectual delay, and physical problems.

-i dont know what your point is with the infatuation v love tangent. and all that other stuff. if you are saying it's not a disorder but they are just confused, that could be true but it isn't a very good argument against my general thesis.- That is my counter theory.

It is not at all common really, the majority just doesn't go telling everyone they are straight.
