To me personally it doesn't matter if being gay is a choice or genetic but In recent years, evidence has accumulated that a homosexual orientation is inherited. Study of family history reveals that homosexual men have more homosexuals in their family tree than do heterosexuals. However this is true only of ancestors that can be traced through the mother`s side of the family and does not apply to paternal ancestors. The fact that most animal species (including octopi and hedgehogs) also display a proportion of homosexual orientations suggests it is a totally natural variation . Having worked in Long day care for many years with ages 6 weeks to 6 years I can honestly say I have observed "gay" children (who I have observed grow into gay adults ). I hardly think a 4 year old is capable of making such a choice !. Clearly they were born that way. They have the right to be who they are and to be respected .I can`t understand why some people discriminate against homosexuality !!!
