Nobody is ‘born that way,’ gay historians say
Very important article!! I have heavily quoted it here.
“Virtually no serious person disputes that in our society, people generally experience their gay or straight orientations as unchosen and unchangeable. But the LGBT community goes further, portraying itself as a naturally arising subset of every human population, with homosexuality being etched into some people’s DNA.”
“Are gays indeed born that way? The question has immense political, social, and cultural repercussions. For example, some of the debate over applying the Constitution’s equal protection￼ clause to gays and lesbians focuses on whether gayness is an inborn characteristic.
“Thus, if it’s proven sexual orientations are not innate, much of the scaffolding upon which today’s LGBT movement has been built would begin to crumble. Given the stakes, most gays and lesbians are dismissive or hostile toward anyone who doesn’t think being gay is an essential, natural characteristic of some members of the human race.
“But a surprising group of people doesn’t think that – namely, scholars of gay history and anthropology. They’re almost all LGBT themselves, and they have decisively shown that gayness is a product of Western society originating about 150 years ago.”
“Using documents and field studies these intrepid social scientists have examined the evidence of homosexuality in other times and cultures to see how the gay minority fared. But they’ve come up empty. Sure, there’s substantial evidence of both discreet and open same-sex love and sex in pre-modern times. But no society before the 19th century had a gay minority or even discernibly gay-oriented individuals.”
“According to the experts on homosexuality across centuries and continents, being gay is a relatively recent social construction.”
“Few scholars with advanced degrees￼in anthropology or history who CONCENTRATE on HOMOSEXUALITY believe gays have EXISTED in any cultures before or outside ours, much less in all cultures. These professors work closely with an ever-growing body of knowledge that DIRECTLY CONTRADICTS “born that way” ideology.”
This article goes on to say that cultures in the past where people committed homosexual acts did NOT have people who identified as gay or homosexual people. Rather they were heterosexual people who also had homosexual sex. The article brings up the Greek culture as the example.
Keep in mind that these are not ‘homo hating fundamentalist homophobes’ as homosexuals live to characterize those who tell the truth. These SCIENTISTS are themselves homosexuals who are saying that there is ZERO evidence that people are born homosexual.
Once again the Bible is proven right.
Read this article. Keep it to bring out when you run into people who still insist upon the lie that people are born homosexual.
