    I've said it elsewhere, but I fully acknowledge I am not that good at debating and I know it, and this shows it.

    What I was implying, was that if she is that outnumbered, with little support herself, that others pointed out, that she really really should reconsider her stance and see where it is coming from. Not to imply that the majority is correct because it is the majority.

    Yes indeed, thank you .

    Though, brain develops up until around late 20's if memory serves correctly, so that could pop up at any time effectively without knowing when.

    What would be a really cool study, is if they studied the brains of people starting from infancy to adulthood, then look at the differences. If they get even just 100 participants, it could give some really interesting results. Sadly it will take a generation.

    If you can provide some support for this argument I'll take it a bit more seriously. Up to this point though, you have largely made claims with no backup so I am not inclined to assume its based on more than your internal interpretations of what you see in the world.

    Also, in a way you have desexualized this. It's not just about companionship, but physical attraction. I am sexually aroused by males, and not at all by females. Granted, sexual attraction and romantic attraction are separate (but often mutually exclusive), so it's only looking at one part of it. It's less about a bond with a male, but I just find them sexy. Many gay men feel this way if you were to ask them.

    I wouldn't be surprised if personality type had something to do with homosexuality.

    I hang out on several gay oriented forum-style sites. One of the biggest is /r/gaybros. They pretty much runs the gambit of personality types. If there is a link I suspect it is pretty weak.

    @Hard and @AphroditeGoneAwry

    The argument is futile on both sides due to a lack of conclusive, unbiased evidence that suggests one way over the other completely. For all we know, it could be a combination of physiological and environmental factors. There simply isn't enough evidence at the time being to disprove one side of the coin or the other entirely. (religious arguments are exactly the same way)

    Calling me foolish, or whatever name you used, for liking and quoting the Bible, isn't what I would call full blown Christian.

    to be more precise, I believe each personality can have its own reason for turning gay. I don't know what that is but I'm certain its there. If I were to turn gay it would probably be because I lost hope in females and looked for someone just as desperate as myself for love. But I'm sure other personalities may have their reasons.

    Sure it is. Maybe god gave me a bit of knowledge that you don't have yet, that he wants you to understand, so that you can put up a good argument against people who don't know anything about faith.

    I was giving you the benefit of the doubt by calling it sexual loving.


    Anyone can sex with anyone or anything!!!!!!!!!!!! Who you are aroused by is NOT a reason for whom you should or could LOVE! If that were the case, I'd indentify as a Poly Demi bi-sexual into kink and D/s. That is the fleshly side of me, not the spiritual side. Feeding the flesh will not lead me to a higher spiritual plane, or glorify God, which I (and you) are made for.

    I could be aroused by pretty much any sexual scenario you can imagine, with pretty much any gender or probably even animal. But I'm not about to define myself thus!! I'm not an animal. I'm a higher-minded human being. God made me for more than that. He made me to spiritually love Him and possibly my Divine partner. And to unconditionally love all humans.

    Let's stop letting our sex drive us. It debases you and makes you commit sexual immorality by living by the desires of your flesh.
