(REPOST) But yeah..You Weren't Born That Way.. Your Argument Fail

Before You Read. I must claim. this is a repost and I lay no claim to this work
Its not Mine. I didnt write it. Didnt even read it the whole way through,
Just food for thought

We are born heterosexual! Womp Womp Womp...I want factual information...pretty much kills your credibility and when you use no scientific research or resource to back up your claim. Even Anne Coulter uses research no matter if it is rigged and complete hog wash she has research and sources to back her claims.


Let's understand Nature vs. Nurture first.

The nature versus nurture debates concern the relative importance of an individual's innate qualities ("nature", i.e. nativism, or innatism) versus personal experiences ("nurture", i.e. empiricism or behaviorism) in determining or causing individual differences in physical and behavioral traits.

The view that humans acquire all or almost all their behavioral traits from "nurture" is known as tabula rasa ("blank slate"). This question was once considered to be an appropriate division of developmental influences, but since both types of factors are known to play such interacting roles in development, many modern psychologists consider the question naive - representing an outdated state of knowledge. Psychologist Donald Hebb is said to have once answered a journalist's question of "which, nature or nurture, contributes more to personality?" by asking in response, "which contributes more to the area of a rectangle, its length or its width?"

Psychological Nativism:

In the field of psychology, nativism is the view that certain skills or abilities are 'native' or hard wired into the brain at birth. This is in contrast to empiricism, the 'blank slate' or tabula rasa view, which states that the brain has inborn capabilities for learning from the environment but does not contain content such as innate beliefs.

Some nativists believe that specific beliefs or preferences are hard wired. For example, one might argue that some moral intuitions are innate or that color preferences are innate. A less established argument is that nature supplies the human mind with specialized learning devices. This latter view differs from empiricism only to the extent that the algorithms that translate experience into information may be more complex and specialized in nativist theories than in empiricist theories. However, empiricists largely remain open to the nature of learning algorithms and are by no means restricted to the historical associationist mechanisms of behaviorism.

We have this natural urge to be with the opposite sex?

So the ones who do not have these natural urges are diseased? I am attracted to the opposite sex but I do not wish to be intimate with the opposite sex, so what does that make me? The APA recently brought this topic up again about people wishing to change their sexual orientation to be apart of socionormatives.

"Contrary to claims of sexual orientation change advocates and practitioners, there is insufficient evidence to support the use of psychological interventions to change sexual orientation," said Judith M. Glassgold, PsyD, chair of the task force. "Scientifically rigorous older studies in this area found that sexual orientation was unlikely to change due to efforts designed for this purpose. Contrary to the claims of SOCE practitioners and advocates, recent research studies do not provide evidence of sexual orientation change as the research methods are inadequate to determine the effectiveness of these interventions." Glassgold added: "At most, certain studies suggested that some individuals learned how to ignore or not act on their homosexual attractions. Yet, these studies did not indicate for whom this was possible, how long it lasted or its long-term mental health effects. Also, this result was much less likely to be true for people who started out only attracted to people of the same sex."

Also when we speak of choices, remember the act of homosexuality is a choice no shit and the same can be said for heterosexuals! You can supress the choice of being with someone of the same sex no matter your reasoning but the desire does not go away. This is why I do not believe in Ex Homosexuality brainwashing bullshit because you were either desiring someone of the same sex in the first place or you just labeled yourself. We need to start teaching the Kinsey Scale more and maybe this will not happen. All of this has been around since the 1970s why are people being so naive in 2009?


You can read all of this if you please instead of your fuckery Google : )
