Also I've already cited this article
Text from abstract: [quote">We conclude that, due to the methodological problems of extant studies, the basis for asserting the existence of relationships between habituation, sensitization, classical conditioning, operant conditioning, and sexual behavior is tenuous.[/quote">

So you are supporting 5cats assertion that nurture and conditioning are larger factors in determining sexual orientation
If 5Cats interpretation of said experiment is true then we should've had a HIGHLY effective means of changing sexual behavoir. Since the first experiment has been performed we don`t even have a way of curing pedophilia. Furthermore Skinner`s experiment have thus far have mostly been applicable towards improving childhood education than anything else.
As for the Spitzer study even Spitzer himself had doubtful remarks about it: "It was very hard to find only 200 highly motivated subjects. ... There maybe homosexuals who can change but they are very rare."

what. do. people. not. understand? being gay is not, I REPEAT NOT, a choice. it really is simple. if you say same sex attraction is a choice, you are wrong. there is no debate to be had. i might as well argue that up is down.

The big "scandal" here is that (1) Bachman is scamming the government by taking Medicare funds for make-believe medicine and (2) she's a hypocrite for taking funding she`s previously condemned. Where is the Republican and Tea Party outrage over this criminal squandering of public monies?
