'Gay gene'? No scientific evidence for it

A new study should convince academics and the general public that there is no “homosexual gene.”

Two distinguished scholars at Johns Hopkins University have released a lengthy, three-part report concluding that there’s not sufficient evidence to prove homosexuals and transgenders are born in that condition – in other words, there is no “gay gene.”

“The understanding of sexual orientation as an innate, biologically fixed property of human beings – the idea that people are ‘born that way’ – is not supported by scientific evidence,” states the executive summary.

“The hypothesis that gender identity is an innate, fixed property of human beings that is independent of biological sex – that a person might be ‘a man trapped in a woman’s body’ or ‘a woman trapped in a man’s body’ – is not supported by scientific evidence,” it adds.

(See video summary below)

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality offers his comments on the report to OneNewsNow.

“Homosexual activists have been desperate to try to say they’re ‘born that way’ because they believe this absolves them of their moral responsibility for their sexual behavior,” he shares. “And they know that if the public believes that people are – quote – ‘born gay,’ then the public is much more accepting of homosexual activism. And that’s exactly what we’ve seen in the culture.”

LaBarbera argues that the culture is getting false information from liberal academics and liberal media that present the “gay gene” theory as truth when study after study confirms there’s no such thing.

“I think the evidence is becoming so overwhelming that there is no gay gene that even liberal-minded academics are forced to concede this point,” he adds. “The homosexual lobby and a lot of people in it banked on the gay gene theory to win sympathy. It worked … but the evidence continues to mount against that theory.”

The 143-page report recognizes a corollary between same-gender attraction and sexual abuse as a child. The Johns Hopkins experts also emphasize that sexuality is fluid – which means homosexuals can change; and many have, mostly through Christ.

    ““Homosexual activists have been desperate to try to say they’re ‘born that way’ because they believe this absolves them of their moral responsibility for their sexual behavior,”
    OneNewsNow June 18, 2014
    The latest in scientific research: There is no homosexual gene.
    Even the rabid left-wing Guardian newspaper in the UK is retreating like the outgoing tide from the lie that homosexuals are born that way. This blows the entire foundation of the gay “rights” movement completely out of the tub.

    It would appear that LGBTs have devolved into their own mental species, more of a sub-human culture variety. They have abandoned civilized moral behavior and are dominated by and are enslaved to their perverted sexual desires. So in reality it is more a mental disorder than a separate species. Kind of like mad dogs, and as mad dogs they should be chained up somewhere.

      Wow Scruffy, “sub-human” and “chained up”. You’re a really ****** American. In the land of the free, where we are guaranteed the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, you want to belittle and chain up someone. I have friends and family who are gay and they are no more sexual deviants than straight people. They’re just like everyone else, they go to work, go out with their friends and family, have cookouts and just basically live normal lives. They love who they love; who are you to judge?

      And I get what bootcamp808 is pointing out – you were too stupid to make chief. So go ahead, I’m sure you have some choice words for me. However, I’m sure your response will be as pathetic as your original post.

And those who complete 20 years of honorable service have devoted their life to this country and do not deserve to have that questioned based upon their personal opinions which they have earned their place to voice.

    The presence or existence of a gay gene is about as meaningful as the existence of a “free will” gene. The two obviously cannot dwell within the same human body, which by the way is the temple that houses their holy spirit, something that gays deem an inconvenient truth. This is just ANOTHER liberal two dimensional progressive body/mind rationalization “Man” edification that lets them off the hook for self/same worshipping and poor life choices, where the consuming two dimensional people of just body and mind always come up short and behind the three dimensional people of body mind and SPIRIT. Their pathological denial and pathological assaults on God is required or their whole argument evaporates, along with the validity of their lifestyle. Let me remind you that science is not the CREATION of man, but the discovery of what was already CREATED by our CREATOR. There is a God and WE are NOT him, just his reflection if we make the right choices. Either you carry within your spirit the CREATIVE reflection of a CREATOR, or the diminutive image of the great CONSUMER. Beware of those who call you American CONSUMERS,,,,,,no, this Christian nation was designed to CREATE,,,,wealth, jobs, prosperity and real lives, to be celebrated when they succeed, not mocked and robbed via Secular socialist taxation, and media manipulation.

That said, the USA is founded on the premise that all are created equal and that freedom is endowed by the Creator. Can someone point out the gene that gives Scruffy the FREEDOM to live, albeit in the closet, the life he chooses? While you’re at it, where is the “faith gene”? Not a religious gene, but genetic proof of the validity of faith.

      I’ve had some differences with Scruffy, but he’s pretty much right here.

      Anyone that’s old enough might remember that homosexuals themselves used to insist that it was a choice.

      It wasn’t until AIDS surfaced, and people started saying that “If you didn’t want AIDS, just stop doing that”, that homosexuals started to claim that they were “born that way” and couldn’t help it.

      Even if you’re not old enough to remember, you could look it up.

      Master & Johnson were considered the most reputable researchers in the area of sexual behaviors up until then, but when they published their research around the same time indicating that homosexuality could be “cured” they were vilified and their careers literally destroyed.

      A lot of cosmic comments being posted here. And it is still unfortunate that Scruffy the sailor wasn’t motivated enough to make chief. A shrewd chief would never make racist or homophobic remarks (even if he was a homophobic racist) because he was smart enough to know that the powers that be would not recommend him for that special honor in the Navy.

    Yet, despite all scientific evidence, or lack thereof, the sexually perverted will continue to bellow that they were “born this way”. The answer to their insistence is, of course you were, everyone is born with a sin nature. The only way to combat that sin nature is to accept the free gift of Grace offered by Jesus Christ. Believe, and turn from your wicked ways, and you shall be saved.

      You make a valid point but for politically correct reasons they would never be allowed to test for that gene. I do not disagree with the article per se but there is something different about their brains. I have long been under the impression that they had identified and extra chromosome or missing chromosome or something like that. Am I wrong? I knew two boys who were clearly gay to their parents even as very small children (by the age of 3). Perhaps it is just a propensity that is embraced but I do believe there is something different.

There are plenty of examples where this has been shown: the bakers in Oregon, the photographers in New Mexico to name two. In America, we all have rights. My rights end where your rights begin, but your rights end where mine begin. Your rights don’t trump mine. You want to be accepted by society?

      1. There is currently 7.4 billion people on this planet.
      2. It takes exactly 1/4 acre per human to produce enough food to sustain life.
      3. That means it would take 1.85 billion acres of land to support human life.

How can a female act more manly then some men, and how come a male can act like a little sissy girl. It’s definitely odd behavior and it seems to come natural to them. Just take away the “sex equation” and these people would be categorized more like having a Mental Illness. Life can be hard enough, and having this disposition only makes it more difficult. I’m straight and I don’t bash people that are different.

    The bible says that God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created them male and female he created them.
    Genesis Chap 1 verse 27.
    God did not create a separate gay gene for the homosexual. His word is the final authority. Anything beyond what God said is deviant and demonic.
    The LGBT movement is hell bent on trying to convince us that God created a separate gay gene so that they can justify their sodomy and oral sex practices.

    The truth is that there can always be one study you can point to to reinforce your opinion. That makes it possible for people to ignore the overwhelming evidence of mainstream science but that doesnt mean it is valid a conclusion given the weight of the evidence. Even the “American Association of Christian Counselors” determined that homosexuality is a condition one has been born with and recommends against conversion therapy.I bet you all would like to read the new study in Scientific American that indicates that homophobes are homosexuals who have successfully repressed their natural sexual orientation.

      Just because someone is “born that way” doesn’t mean there’s a genetic explanation. There’s no ‘twin-gene’ or ‘pin-head gene’ or ‘hare-lip gene’ or ‘club-foot gene’ either. Like male homosexuality, these are birth defects caused by pre-natal trauma. I graduated from grad school 45 years ago, and we were told then that homosexuality (at least the male version) was most likely caused by exposure to testosterone at the wrong stage of fetal development. It was known to anatomists that male homosexual’s brain tissue resembled female brain architecture more than a normal male’s, likely due to the lack of testosterone exposure at that exact moment of development. It doesn’t matter much anyway, because every sane human is able to control his voluntary behavior, and sexual-type activity is voluntary (excluding rape) — nobody “has to” commit homosexual acts. If he is unable to control his behavior, he must be taken out of contact with normal people.

    From the way-back machine.
    90’s? maybe in the early 2000’s a “scientist” stated he had found the ‘gay gene’.

    Other Geneticists asked for his data so they could verify his findings.

    He never produced any of his research and disappeared almost immediately, but the media had it and ran with it.

    Neal boortz bought into it and flatly REFUSED to allow any callers to bring up the subject.

    This is interesting, but all this is really saying is that they don’t know what determines sexual orientation. My own personal experience tells me that there is an underlying biological cause for this. I never consciously decided I was attracted to women. As far back as when I was 4 or 5 years old, perhaps earlier, I remember being instinctively attracted to women, and that has not changed. When it comes to attraction and sexual orientation, there is clearly an instinct at work that the conscious mind does not determine. There is clearly a biological cause to this, we just don’t know what it is. Given the behavior of many homosexuals, it is obvious that they simply don’t have a sexual interest in the opposite sex and do for the same sex, so it is not unreasonable to conclude that that biological process is at work but somehow different for them.

      I am of a similar opinion. I have been, from as far back as I can remember, attracted to men. I was not molested as a child, was raised by two loving, traditional, Christian parents, and am strong in my faith as well. However, being a believer in God and His word, I also realize that any sexual activity, gay OR straight, outside of a marriage between a man and a woman is a sin. It has been a struggle, and I have sinned, repented, and asked God for forgiveness, but I live a celibate life. With His grace it’s been a few years since I’ve fallen. How I became gay is not a question I can answer, I just live my life day by day.

      doced, as others have pointed out, it could be a result of hormonal influences while in the womb, as well as a number of other possible causes. The possibility that it is genetic cannot be completely ruled out either. It could be that it is there and it just hasn’t been found yet. Ten years ago it was being said by geneticists that modern humans are not at all descended from Neanderthals, but a more careful study in 2010 revealed that cro-magnons and neanderthals did interbreed and that most modern humans have a small percentage of neanderthal DNA.

    If you believe in evolution, whether random or directed, the idea of a “gay gene” is ludicrous. This would clearly be bred out of the population as soon as it popped up, and there wouldn’t be more than a few homosexuals in the world.

    However, note the line “recognizes a corollary between same-gender attraction and sexual abuse as a child.” For the most part, homosexuality is a symptom of mental illness, mostly derived from PTSD, so our compassion is warranted. Even those who were not sexually abused are likely to have internalized sexual abuse stories early on, and have lived them in there own minds (again, similar to PTSD sufferers, who relive their trauma in flashbacks). it really doesn’t matter if it is real or imagined – if the person “remembering” feels it’s real, it is real to them.

    People claim to be gay just to get attention. They dress as either male or female and say that is what they want to be. A little more attention from parents, while growing up, would help them with their gender identity. Some parents encourage children to say they are gay to get attention for themselves. God help the poor children and the parents can help themselves.

    I have said this before and was ridiculed and belittled but homosexuality is a mental illness. No one will admit it or believe me when I tell them that homosexuals started taking over the psychiatric medicine in the sixties. When they had a majority they simply told the rest of the world that homosexuality was no longer an illness. There were not enough credible psychiatrist left to dispute their claims. All the proof in the world will not change their minds now. I know there will be many if not all that will scoff at this and call me names or laugh it off as some kind of conspiracy nut thinking but the truth is the truth no matter who tries to bury it.

      cybrdg, there were no scientists involved in coining the word homophobia. The root homo means “all the same”, as in homogenous, and the root phobia means “unreasonable fear”. Hence, unreasonable fear of sameness. Homosexual=same sex.
      chuckyb, you are correct. In 1967, the new homosexual militant movement bullied the American Psychiatric Association into removing homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses in the then new DSM3. Gender dysmorphia, and gender dysphoria (transgenderism), remain on the list of mental illnesses in the DSM5.

    The discussions, though mostly argumentative, about the cause or causes of homosexual predilection, typically confine their conclusions to those concerning contemporary times. However, homosexuality is not only as old as humanity, but is also practiced among other animal species. Consider the Ancient Greeks, Assyrians, Persians, Romans, Egyptians, Mycenaeans, and still others, where bisexuality was not only commonplace, but regarded as normal, natural, and for the most part, readily accepted by their respective cultures. Homosexuality was tolerated, but less well accepted. Many great men and women throughout history were and are homosexuals. The strictures against homosexuality have come from standards set by religions, because procreation was absolutely necessary in order to preserve and expand any particular culture. To suggest that homosexual behavior is caused by abuse, or is otherwise perverse and deviant, is simplistic, anecdotal, and/or taught by some religion or other. Morality played no role in those earlier judgments. They were based upon practical needs of an ambitious society wherein this or that religion was practiced. There seems no simple, inclusive answer to the question of cause, though hormonal influence during gestation is a likely suspect. One day we’ll know.

      Doced, while it is true that bisexuality and homosexuality were openly practiced in older societies, it is also true that what we consider sexual abuse was also practiced in those societies. Even those not directly experiencing it were exposed to these experiences at an early age. Therefore these examples support the theory that homosexuality is a response to these traumatic experiences, rather than invalidate it.
      Bi-sexuality is a completely different situation. There are no examples of homosexuality in the animal kingdom, except in those that have been physically prevented from heterosexual interactions for a significant portion of their entire lives prior to the opportunity. this proves only that familiarity can overcome nature.

      That God created Man is not a fact, but a belief that’s part of many religions, though in many variations. Your belief, to which you are, of course, entirely entitled and that I respect, is not proof of anything…except to those who share that belief. It’s curious, if you think about it, that contemporary religions, (most, not all), deny and dismiss belief in ghosts, spirits, reincarnation, magic, communing with the dead, and such like, but all of them have as integral and inseparable elements, those very same aspects. What I’m saying is that people of faith criticize, most often negatively, other people of a different faith, because the others do, or don’t, believe in reincarnation, (rising from the dead into another, different form), communing with spirits of the dead, worshipping idols, magical transformations of one material to another, (Transubstantiation), angels, devils, and so on. Countless wars and countless deaths, usually extraordinarily violent, have been waged, and waged even today, over the assumed superiority and supremacy of one religious doctrine over another competing one. The beliefs are not the problem, you see, rather it’s the insistence, at any cost, of certain believers to impose their set upon everybody else and thereby eliminate the competition. Murder, rape, pillage, destruction, whatever it takes. All in the name of God, gods, or who/what is believed to order it and justify it. Surely you can see that.
