While no one in my immediate family is homosexual, everyone that I have known that is has been so miserable with it that I cannot totally discount the idea that it may indeed have a strong genetic component.

The shame and ridicule they experience makes me believe that most would not be that way by choice.

There is still a lot we don’t understand about the influence of genetics, so I try to keep an open mind.

What I do strongly resent is the promotion/ indoctrination efforts by that community in our schools.

Compulsions that are born of early childhood abuse are very powerful - they need not be inborn to take control of somebody's life, even though they affect them in very negative ways.

Most people with some sort of pathology are miserable, and most want out of it. But it's always easier to go with the flow rather than make the great effort that's necessary to change your deep-seated habits -- even if you have to put up with shame and ridicule.

And these days, the shame and ridicule is pretty minimal if you move somewhere like the Castro or Inman Park. Which is why there are so many more in-your-face homosexual agitators than there used to be.

With all due respect - rubbish.

Evolution is only possible with HETEROSEXUAL relationships, this is concrete and has not changed for millions of years.

Neurosis is very complex, and becomes addictive due to the ability of the brain to add brain cells in brain areas that we exercise often, as recent discoveries in stroke research have revealed. (Stroke recovery also shows that we can "reprogram" our brains to varying extents.)

Emotionally, persons who have been shamed and ridiculed as children, especially by their parents, may unconsciously seek out more of the same. It becomes confused with the quest for love because it's the only thing they've known. This configuration is seen in women who were abused in childhood and then unconsciously find abusers as partners to a greater extent than women who were not abused as children.
