While I do find the attitude towards transgenders here absolutely sickening and downright ignorant, tests and research has shown that being gay isn't really inherent, its even possible for a person to become ''less gay'' and be attracted to the opposite gender.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/10637532/Being-homosexual-is-only-partly-due-to-gay-gene-research-finds.html
There is also another more comprehensive article i'll try to find, but essentially genes may have some kind of part but its mostly environmental, and that doesn't necessarily mean social or upbringing, anything that isn't straight out of birth.


I suppose that's not really surprising, really. Psychological training or trauma can make a person completely different. We see that sort of thing with Stockholm Syndrome, where a kidnapped victim grows a strong mental and emotional attachment with his/her captor. While all logic would suggest that the victim should find them revolting, they actually become psychologically dependent upon them.

Granted, that's a rather extreme case. I suppose a more appropriate one would be someone who has depression but still acts as a productive member of society and maintains healthy social relationships. While the genetic factor is there for them to be depressed, they can still live a very happy life and, at least partly, overcome their genetic predisposition. But it still doesn't take away the depression, and it requires an on-going, active effort. I know this from experience; my family has a long history with depression.

Regardless of all that, the article does state that a gene exists that makes one more likely to be gay, which is something I was wrong about earlier. Thanks for the info! I suppose, as with anything, sexual orientation is at least partly inherent. Hell, I don't know. As a straight male, it's not an issue I've ever had to deal with, but I can't bring myself to judge someone based on orientation alone. I don't see them as flawed or sick, and it's not something that I feel needs to be cured. I like women, and they like men. If that's the only difference between us, then we have a lot more in common than that which we don't.

And one quote stuck out to me in that article that reinforces my general point:
