    The APA lists no known causes for homosexual, thoughthere are some hypotheses. What do you think and why?

    You do realize you contradicted yourself I hope? People don't choose mental illness. If it was a mental illness it wouldn't be a perverted lifestyle.

    I think they are born with it and its probably something with their hard wiring mixed with their hormones maybe.

    Lol yes you did. You even said it below I will point it out. There is no need to stop being a lady about it


    Well if it is a mental illness statement belowis in contradiction. No therapy or medicine exists, and there is no pathology withhomosexuality.

    If it is a choice it isn't, a mental disorder.

    I don't believe it's a one size fits all issue. I believe some are born gay while others choose that lifestyle due to convenience. The convenience part is because many kids have a hard time talking to the other side and are more comfortable with their own gender and act on it. After a while they accept it because it's easier. I saw many women who were lesbians who had been married to a man but felt so screwed over that they changed sides. Very hard to believe that they were born gay. Just my 2 cents.

    I think people can have natural tendencies toward being gay. I also know that ancient cultures like Sparta saw being gay as a cultural norm, so they all engaged in it. This tells me it's not simply a "born that way" issue, it is also culturally mediated.

    All sexuality is hardwired. You cannot control your biological make-up. You can, however, control how you act.
