Perhaps it is related to the fact that 62% of black versus 17% of white children are being raised in fatherless homes. But even the worst racist wouldn’t suggest that it is due to genetic predisposition. Were homosexual impulses truly inherited, we should be unable to find differences in homosexual practice due to religious upbringing or racial sub-culture. Changing Sexual Preferences In a large random sample 88% of women currently claiming lesbian attraction and 73% of men claiming to currently enjoy homosexual sex, said that they had been sexually aroused by the opposite sex, 31 • 85% of these “lesbians” and 54% of these “homosexuals” reported sexual relations with someone of the opposite sex in adulthood, • 67% of lesbians and 54% of homosexuals reported current sexual attraction to the opposite sex, and • 82% of lesbians and 66% of homosexuals reported having been in love with a member of the opposite sex.
There is the nature vs. nuture dispute. There is evidence for genetic influence on orientation . . but there is also evidence of profound social and environmental influence. Yet some activists in the gay community have already built a hard-and fast position on genetics, believing that it’s the only workable basis for our rights as a minority group, alongside other minorities who inherit characteristics like gender and skin color. This seems like a risky choice of tactics to me. Genetics is a slippery slope for such a life-and-death political position—if only because there are variable genes that can kick in at different times of life and change us radically.
The only comment that conversion therapists offer is that sexual orientation is difficult to change. All conversion therapy rests solidly on the assumption that homosexuality is in conflict with a fulfilling life, balancing out any risks from treatment in the eyes of those therapists. It is important to ask if these treatments might result in negative consequences, however. This author’s fifteen years of clinical experience with gay men who have gone through some form of conversion therapy suggests a wide variability in the way people are affected.
