"They have convinced the public that it is something you are born with. Have you any "proof" of that? What if it begins at age 1-4 in the Psyche? It was listed as a psychological disorder less that 30 years ago and then "changed". Was it changed due to new studies or proof? No, scientific findings were changed under nothing more than political pressure. And they are still suppressing facts and data about death and decease and illnesses that are the result of that life style. If your thing is that you ALWAYS ask questions, what about questioning the information the media is feeding you?"Let me first ask you this: if being gay was a choice for me, then was being straight a choice for you? Taken from this article, it suggests this, "Studies suggests that conditions in the womb also influence sexual orientation. For instance, the more older male siblings a man has, the greater chance he will be gay. Scientists say the phenomenon cannot be explained by the youngest boy being babied and mollycoddled or other differences in the way they are brought up. It is thought that carrying a male baby in the womb triggers an immune response in the mother, creating antibodies that attack part of the unborn child's brain linked to sexual orientation. This response gets stronger the more boys a woman carries, raising the odds of homosexuality. Exposure to hormones in the womb is also likely to be important and some argue that upbringing plays a role in sexuality."
I've never seen so many people with "psychological disorders" function so well in life. In fact, psychological disorders does not discriminate between heterosexuals and homosexuals. And is a psychological disorder to be mocked? Of course not because many Americans suffer from anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD, ADHD, and so on and so on. Or you can just believe that the media is feeding you these "disorders" in order to gain your business so you can run out and get the next new big antidepressant available. I will say that many gays, lesbians and transgender people go through a lot of psychological problems due to the way they have been treated. If you are constantly told that you're crazy for being gay or transgender or that you're "not normal" and in worst case scenarios, I have seen parents throwing their own children out into the street because they were gay -- I bet that would get anyone's psyche a bit disorderly. How many kids are being bullied for being gay?

The media did not encourage my gay lifestyle. In fact, it did quite the opposite, letting me know how different I was. I remember being as young as 4 years old watching a soap opera. I remember ogling the beautiful women that were on TV, never once glaring at the men. I was enthralled by them. I remember having little crushes on my female girlfriends as a child. I grew up in a Catholic Italian household, with three older straight sisters and parents who had been together since they were 14 years old! We lived up in the sticks and away from the urban areas where I didn't have many neighborhood friends to play with, so I wasn't brought up exposed to the gay and lesbian lifestyle, until I was 19 years old and met my first girlfriend in a college up in Delhi, NY. So nobody influenced me -- in fact, they discouraged it greatly.
No wonder children in school have it hard today. If you have parents that have the same mindset as this commenter, don't you think that would influence their behavior on how they treat their classmates who are gay, lesbian or transgender? Children learn from their parents. Monkey see, monkey do. So if Bobby calls some kid a faggot out on the playground, that's okay in his mind because mommy and daddy call them faggots. If Bobby's dad says that being gay is a psychological disorder, then the kid may end up calling the gay kid, "crazy", among a few other choice words. And it doesn't matter if Bobby's Christian parents tell him to treat others nicely -- Bobby doesn't see anything wrong with what he says to other gay kids because mommy and daddy say these things, therefore, it must be "OKAY".
Let me just remind you about a few incidents that have taken place this past decade or so.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of sound mind. --1 Timothy 1:7
Anytime I am faced with a Christian that tells me how the Bible is against homosexuality, in the sense of any loving relationship -- mostly referring to the sexual aspects, I'm reminded about how frequently they use the story of Sodom and Gomorrah.
The story of Sodom and Gomorrah. Basically, God says that He's going to destroy cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, if two angels cannot find any good people within the towns. Once the angels arrive, a kind man named Lot invites these angels into his home and entertains them. This angers the cities' men, and the men rallied outside of Lot's home, wishing to do "perverse actions" to these male angels. Moments later, the two cities are destroyed by fiery rain. Many anti-gay Christian ministers use this passage to say that this is an example of God’s wrath against homosexuality -- as if the men of Sodom were all gay, and all trying to "be gay with" these male angels. Historians and sociologists tell us that gang rape was a very common form of brutal humiliation of the subjects, in the ancient Western world. The Sodomite men did not come to Lot’s house to have monogamous, committed, loving relationships with the male angels residing there. They came to rape these angels. Also, MULTIPLE parts of the Bible (Luke 10: 10-13; Isaiah 19: 13-14; Jeremiah 23: 14; Ezekiel 16: 49; Zephaniah 2: 8-11) tell us that God despised the greed and their wickedness toward outsiders as their sin, not that fact that men wanted to “have sex” with men.
