kaendar, you are fucked in the head.
thus, when the APA says homosexuality is not a mental disorder and stands by it for decades, he says they have no credibility.
but when the APA finds out that a study they trusted had questionable methodology or flawed findings, he marches it out as a trump card.
this is confirmation bias in action.
fuck off, kaendar.
kaendar ignores that his own copy and paste contradicts him (and is also misleading).
the APA's statement says genetics are a factor, yet the publisher of the article says "so it's not genetics". this is obviously misleading and biased. it does go on to say that it is more than just choice, as kaendar claims.
- "There is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay or lesbian orientation. Although much research has examined the possible genetic, hormonal, developmental, social, and cultural influences on sexual orientation, no findings have emerged that permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factor or factors. Many think that nature and nurture both play complex roles. ..."
Conclusion: It's not genetic, but so what? People will do what they want to do whether you like it or not. No one yet truly knows why it happens but it is definitely more than just simple 'choice'.
As I'm certain you didn't take my previous advice of reading the writings of Solomon when it comes to animals and souls I doubt that providing you with a further biblical reference will do absolutely any good... But in the hope that you further educate yourself in the writings in the bible of which you keep speaking, I ask you to read Leviticus... I'm not going to provide you with the actual verse number as I believe you should get a deeper more intimate understanding of more than just one point... but for this discussion on sexual immorality I say Leviticus...
I find it hard to take people seriously when they bring up the bible as a point of reference without having actually read the bible...
In Leviticus you will find the list of Sexual Immoralities as held by the Jewish people... As a warning for you so your brain doesn't shatter completely it does not mention pre marital sex at all...
I spent a month reading the bible just researching this very point...
tell ya what, kaendar. you start copying and pasting evidence to support your theory, and for every one you post, i'll post 3 studies that show that homosexuality is not a mental disorder.
