Why Is the Born Gay Argument so Popular?  /  Is the Born Gay Argument Intentionally Misleading?

According to the American Psychiatric Association, “No one knows what causes heterosexuality, homosexuality, or bisexuality. … Currently there is a renewed interest in searching for biological etiologies for homosexuality. However, to date there are no replicated scientific studies supporting any specific biological etiology for homosexuality.”1 In other words, genuine science has no idea what causes homosexuality. Despite this, the born gay argument is touted as proven fact by gay activists.

The reasons why the born gay argument remains so pervasive today despite the overwhelming evidence against it is because it is a well-calculated strategy designed to absolve homosexuals of all responsibility for their actions. This is not the author’s opinion. Rather, it is a stated objective in the book After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 1990’s. If you will recall, we have already discussed how this book was written by homosexual activists as a “practical agenda” which has proven to be incredibly successful.2 These gay authors wrote that an important part of this agenda should be presenting homosexuals as having been born gay. They wrote, “We argue that, for all practical purposes, gays should be considered to have been born gay—even though sexual orientation, for most humans, seems to be the products of a complex interaction between innate predispositions and environmental factors during childhood and early adolescence. And since no choice is involved, gayness can be no more blameworthy than straightness.”3 In other words, these gay activists proposed intentionally misrepresenting the science and purposefully deceiving Americans in order to absolve homosexuals of their responsibility. But even if it could one day be proven that homosexuals are born with a gay gene, does being born with a genetic pre-disposition truly absolve someone of responsibility for his behavior?

Virtually every human behavior, orientation, or tendency involves some genetic component, and yet this does not justify or normalize these behaviors, orientations, and tendencies, nor does it mean that people with these genetic components should not try to change their behavior, orientations, and tendencies. As the pro-gay psychologists, Dr. J. Michael Bailey of Northwest University and Dr. Brian Mustanski of Indiana University righty observed, “[N]o clear conclusions about the morality of a behavior can be made from the mere fact of biological causation, because all behavior is biologically caused.”4 Likewise, Dr. Dean Hamer and Peter Copeland wrote in their book The Science of Desire: The Gay Gene and the Biology of Behavior, “In short, biology is amoral; it offers no help distinguishing between right and wrong. Only people, guided by their values and beliefs, can decide what is moral and what is not.”5
