It is genetic.

As usual, you have no proof of that whatsoever.

Some may be preference based (very small amount, mostly anecdotal relations). But, most is born that way.

People say "born this way" so that people don't try to change behavior....


So you are saying it is an excuse?

An excuse?

I guess, the same way as "skin color" is an excuse.

Do you know how genetics work?

Bloomberg News Will Not Investigate Democratic Candidates, Only Trump
Quote:
In a rare instance of a mainstream news outlet putting their bias political-reporting guidelines down on paper, Bloomberg News has just issued new rules barring their reporters from investigating any of the Democratic candidates while encouraging them to continue their investigations of Donald Trump.

Bloomberg News Will Not Investigate Michael Bloomberg or Democratic Rivals

At least Bloomberg News is being honest about its bias unlike MSM outlets such as NY Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBS, NBC, ABC, CBS etc

What does skin color have to do with the conversation?

Gays always say "born this way" to excuse unhealthy sexual behavior.

"Edward Bernays, the father of public relations, who also worked closely with the government in the creation and dissemination of propaganda, once wrote:

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”

How about - when did someone choose between homosexuality and heterosexuality?
When did they choose to be attracted to one sex or the other?

If they didn't think about it, did they make an informed decision?

I assume Bloomberg, who is now a Presidential candidate, doesn't want to be accused of using his news agency against the other candidates.

Against Trump, yeah, he doesn't care so much.

We are all born heterosexual. Anything else is a choice.
