Born Gay Hoax: Born Straight

Born Straight

“I wasn’t born gay; I chose it. Eyes wide open and mind wide
I saw the potential and decided…”

Lesbian Comedian, Mimi Freed, Advocate, 6-1-93

The testimony of nature is clear, by definition; all men have male sex organs, designed by nature to fit the sex organs of females, not other males. Therefore, if some men develop sexual desires for other men rather than for women, it is clear that however they developed those desires, they are contrary to their natural physical provision.
Just think, wouldn’t we consider it unnatural if someone had perfectly healthy eyes but couldn’t see, or fully functioning ears but couldn’t hear? Why then, would we deem it natural for a person to have perfectly healthy, fully functioning male or female reproductive organs, but then be dispositionally incapable of ever using them to accomplish their natural reproductive purpose with the opposite sex?”


When you are looking at a garden from a room upstairs it is obvious (once you think about it) that you are looking through a window. But if it is the garden that interests you, you may look at it for a long time without thinking of the window. When you are reading a book it is obvious (once you attend to it) that you are using your eyes: but unless your eyes begin to hurt you, or the book is a text book on optics, you may read all evening without once thinking of eyes. In the same way, when a man has sex with another man it is obvious (in a moments reflection) that the only reason he has sexual feelings at all, is because of chemical and hormonal processes rooted in his body’s procreative, heterosexual design.
All these instances show that the fact which is in one sense the most obvious and primary fact, and through which alone you have access to all other facts, may be precisely the one that is most easily forgotten–forgotten not because it is so remote or abstruse but because it is no near and so obvious.
The belief that males are designed for reproduction, and therefore females, rather than other males, or donkeys for that matter, is warranted not as the conclusion of an argument, but as one of the prerequisites for any sound argument whatsoever. World renowned sexual psychologists Masters and Johnson agree.
Together, William Masters and Virginia E. Johnson are known as the twentieth century’s most renowned research team in the field of human sexuality. Masters and Johnson began their work in psychology and human sexuality in the late 1950’s and continued their research well into the 1990s. They began their work at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Washington University in St. Louis. In 1964, the researchers founded an independent not-for-profit research institute in St. Louis called the Reproductive Biology Research Foundation, which later changed its name to the Masters and Johnson Institute. Over the course of their career, Masters and Johnson trained thousands of psychologists, authored two classic texts on the issue of human sexuality, and were even inducted into the St. Louis “Walk of Fame.”
In an article entitled “Homosexuality in Perspective” Masters and Johnson make the following statement about men and women that engage in same-gender sex: “When dealing with problems of sexual preference, it is vital that all health-care professionals bear in mind that the homosexual man or woman is basically a man or woman by genetic determination and is homosexually oriented by learned preference.” [W.H. Masters, V.E. Johnson (1979) Homosexuality in Perspective, Little, Brown and Company: Boston]
Dr. John DeCecco is a respected expert on the issue of human sexuality. Dr. DeCecco is the editor of the Journal of Homosexuality, a professor of psychology at San Francisco State University, and has been honored by the GLBT Historical Society (http://www.sfbaytimes.com/index.php?sec=article&article_id=4645). In an article entitled A Biologic Theory for Sexual Preference which appeared in USA Today, DeCecco dismisses the notion that anyone is born “gay” when he states: “The move towards ‘biologizing’ homosexuality isn’t the result of a scientific consensus, but a political consensus by those eager to label people gay or straight.” Homosexuality,” he says, is a “behavior, not a condition,” and “something that some people can and do change” (K. Painter, (March 1, 1989), A Biologic Theory for Sexual Preference, USA Today p. 4D)
Dr. Camille Paglia is professor of Humanities and Media Studies at the University of the Arts, in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, a prominent and award winning author, and has been ranked number 20 in a list of the worlds “Top 100 Public Intellectuals” by the UK’s Prospect Magazine. She defines herself as a “Feminist Bisexual Egomaniac.” In her book, Vamps and Tramps, Paglia starkly defends the reproductive nature of males and females when she writes: “Homosexuality is not normal. On the contrary it is a challenge to the norm…Nature exists whether academics like it or not. And in nature, procreation is the single relentless rule. That is the norm. Our sexual bodies were designed for reproduction…No one is born gay. The idea is ridiculous…Homosexuality is an adaptation, not an inborn trait.” Camille Paglia, Vamps and Tramps (New York Vintage Books, 1994), pp.70-72
Lastly, in the enchanted and metaphysical words of one of the deepest and simultaneously most accessible intellects in the history of the world, C.S. Lewis, “The design of the human body is screaming to us, that its two halves, the male and the female, were made to be combined together in pairs, not simply on the sexual level but on all levels, and when I say this, I am not expressing a mere sentiment, but stating a fact –just as a person is stating a fact when they say that a lock and its key are one mechanism, or that a violin and a bow are one musical instrument; the male and female are designed to come together, and function as a single organism.
Having failed to make the case in the physical sense of the term natural, same-gender sex activists have turned their attention toward definition number two: the “natural” world.

    Let’s assume for a minute that people ARE born gay. The reality is that it still DOES NOT excuse them from the sin of homosexuality. For more commentary on this visit here and read the link “Born Gay?”

    “by definition; all men have male sex organs, designed by nature to fit the sex organs of females, not other males.”

    The fact is, the male sex organ does “fit… other males”. Two men can have sex, or the issue of the legality of sodomy would not be in question; indeed, it would not exist! In terms of divine creation, if god was anti-homosexuality, surely he would have made gay sex impossible? The fact is, it isn’t.

    Now why would an omnipotent, omniscient god overlook that fact?

    The clear meaning of the sentence is that male sex organs were “designed by nature to fit the sex organs of females, not [the sex organs of] other males.” It is called an elliptical construction: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elliptical_clause

    Last time I checked, the anus and the mouth were not sexual organs.

    You have flawed reasoning: “If this was sinful, surely God would have made this impossible.” But then there would be no free will. Moreover, hardly anything would exist at all! For everything can be corrupted.

    You don’t understand how sin works. Sin has no existence of its own that can be excised out of human nature; it is entrenched in the human heart and merely corrupts what was already created as good.

    So, for example, it is absurd to say “If God is so anti-lying, shouldn’t he have just made it impossible for us to talk at all?”
    By your flawed logic, why not destroy humanity altogether?

    Life is full of suprises and one can never run away from reality..
    I was not born gay but i started practicing this act at the of 8yrs..I thought it was just a common game i used to play with my mates but later it became part of my life.
    Now i am at the age of 22yrs but still no change..So what should i do?
    I finally made my mind to admit the fact of who i am beacuase the more i try to stop this game,the more i become stessed and mentally confused.I know and believe is a sinful act against God…I’m praying God send’s his healing upon me soo that i may change.

    Sexual intercourse, or coitus, refers in a strict biological sense to the insertion of the male’s penis into the female’s vagina for the purpose of reproduction. Sexual intercourse is found among all mammalian species.

    Mike,

    Sexual desires are powerful things that we must take pains to control with the practice of virtue. In your situation, (as well as most people when it comes to sexual temptation especially) RUN AWAY FROM SIN!!! There is nothing courageous about facing down sin. Escape the things in your life that make your temptations possible. Build in barriers in your activities to the occasions of sin. Go to confession (if you’re Catholic) or if you are not, simply go talk to a priest, or call one anonymously on the phone if you must.

    And spend some time simply in front of God in a chapel. Simply sitting in his presence and praying will win you great graces.
