Ny studier avviser ideen om homofilt gen

En ny studie, offentliggjort i magasinet Science, stadfester at det ikke finnes et gen som leder til homoseksuell identitet. Det interessante er at den dermed også bekrefter påstanden til radikale kjønnsforskere. Lifesitenews skriver følgende om studien:

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 3, 2019 (Mercatornet) – The findings of a recently published study explode the false narrative that being “gay” is an innate condition that is controlled or largely compelled by one’s genetic makeup.

Rebutting decades of search by LGBT scientists for a “gay gene,” the study’s first author flatly concludes “it will be basically impossible to predict one’s sexual activity or orientation just from genetics.”

This is putting it gently.

The study found that a person’s developmental environment — the influence of diet, family, friends, neighborhood, religion, and a host of other life conditions — was twice as influential as genetics on the probability of adopting same-sex behavior or orientation, and that the genetic influence did not come from one or two strong sources but from dozens of genetic variants that each added a small increased propensity for same-sex behavior.

A genetic arrangement based on a large number of markers across the genome means that virtually all human beings have this arrangement, or large portions of it. In other words, not only did the study fail to find some controlling gene for gay identity, it also established that “gay” persons are not genetically distinct from all other human beings in any meaningful sense. “Gay” persons, we might say, have a perfectly normal human genome.

Proponents of LGBT normalization, which includes the publishing journal and mainstream media reporters, have tried to put the best face on this result. As if the issue were tolerance of “gay” people’s lifestyle choices, The New York Times quotes one of the authors saying, “I hope that the science can be used to educate people a little bit more about how natural and normal same-sex behavior is,” and LGBT activists declaring that the study “provides even more evidence that being gay or lesbian is a natural part of human life.”

Indeed, the study found that genetic propensity for same-sex behavior is not much different from that of 28 other complex traits or behaviors, and is related to a propensity for other risk-taking behavior such as smoking, drug use, number of sex partners or a general openness to new experience. But the longstanding and emphatic claim of gay activists in law and public policy has not been that same-sex activity reflects upbringing or lifestyle factors, but is an inborn difference that is discovered, not developed, a distinct and fixed element of a person’s nature that is unchangeable. Emotionally and sexually, same-sex orientation is not a matter of who persons choose to become, they have claimed, but who they already are.
