Gay brains are different

Quote:
The brains of gay men and women look like those found in heterosexual people of the opposite sex, research suggests.
The Swedish study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal, compared the size of the brain's halves in 90 adults.

Gay men and heterosexual women had halves of a similar size, while the right side was bigger in lesbian women and heterosexual men.
A UK scientist said this was evidence sexual orientation was set in the womb. .
.
.


Dr Qazi Rahman, a lecturer in cognitive biology at Queen Mary, University of London, said that he believed that these brain differences were laid down early in foetal development.


"As far as I'm concerned there is no argument any more - if you are gay, you are born gay," he said.


The amygdala, he said, was important because of its role in "orientating", or directing, the rest of the brain in response to an emotional stimulus - be it during the "fight or flight" response, or the presence of a potential mate.


"In other words, the brain network which determines what sexual orientation actually 'orients' towards is similar between gay men and straight women, and between gay women and straight men.


"This makes sense given that gay men have a sexual preference which is like that of women in general, that is, preferring men, and vice versa for lesbian women."
BBC NEWS | Health | Scans see 'gay brain differences'

This is a completely random news i heard in awhile.

Re: Gay brains are different

I laughed at the title.

Anyways, I have heard that homosexual's brains function differently which causes them to be attracted to the same sex.

That makes a lot of sense that their brain works that way.

Re: Gay brains are different

I think there is some truth to this, but I would say amongst gay people there are those who choose to be gay and those that are just gay. Meaning there are ones born and there are ones who choose. Something like this could never be set in stone as one or the other. I think you fail to see that I doubt I could explain it too you.

Seems gays are born not made.

Re: Gay brains are different

Sure blame it on child birth.

If you choose to be gay it's your fault not the way you were born.

I'm against this homosexual crap but seriously i don't think they should try to attribute this qualities to child birth.

Or maybe they should because that would mean homosexuality is a disease, i'm 100% for that idea.

Re: Gay brains are different

it's not on child birth that you're gay... there are ltos of theories on why one is gay... one is the astrogen imbalance and another is the social theory...

I take social relationship and the urge to suck on lollipops, Ring-Pops, baby pacifiers, or any such nonsense.

How much more ignorant could you get?

In a scientifical study, it's been proven, multiple times, that the brains of homosexual individuals are identical to the brains of heterosexual individuals of the opposite sex. Since you seem to be unable to comprehend that statement, let me spell it out for you:

In animals, what attracts us to others are things called pheromones. And, since I'm betting you don't know what those are, here's a simple definition: A pheromone is a chemical which triggers a natural behavioral response in another member of the same species.

When it comes to sex pheromones, heterosexual men and women come in contact with pheromones of the opposite sex and feel attraction - which is a natural behavioral response. Being that homosexuals have the same brains as heterosexuals of the opposite sex, it's as though their brains are wired in reverse. Instead of feeling attraction from coming in contact with the opposite sexual pheromones, they feel attraction from coming in contact with sex pheromones from the same gender.

This is not a voluntary response. It is purely natural, wired into our brains from the day we were born, and there is NOTHING ANYONE CAN DO TO CHANGE IT.

Yeah, there are those people who get so "fed up" with the opposite sex that they "switch" to being homosexual. But let me tell you this - I can bet you that 95% or MORE of those individuals go back to being straight before long. And you know why? Because they can't FORCE themselves to be attracted to something they weren't made to be attracted to.

But 9/10 homosexuals are homosexuals by birth, and they cannot change who they are attracted to. Believe it or not, if people COULD change what gender they were attracted to, homosexuality would not be nearly as widespread as it is. As much as homosexuals get discriminated, hated, bashed, and persecuted for the way they were born, do you really think people would remain homosexual if they could choose to be otherwise? No. Because that doesn't make any fucking sense, does it? That'd be like choosing to be black during slavery, it's just fucking retarded of you to believe that.

Do yourself a favor and keep your prejudiced opinions to yourself. At least then you'll seem smart.

Re: Gay brains are different

While it could be a natural behavioral response (because experiments show data favoring that argument,) that doesn't mean you can't avoid it. After all, it is natural for us to kill each other in order to save ourselves.

I mean, I am all for equality and everything, but the argument that just because it is natural I should do it doesn't mean it is right. It comes down to your beliefs and philosophy. In the end you can override these natural responses.
