i believe its possible. we’ve had this convo before because DHs family is a little bit well they dont really like gay people. where we live there are prob 3 or 4 in this town that is obvious.  but his uncle is gay and now his son is. i kind of said if it happens it came from uncle marty hehe. i dont care if my kids gay. but i think its possible its genetic. i was reading an article a while back that said they did a study on straight and gay men. it said gay men all have a lack of some “thing” in their brains. so maybe it is. but i also read an article that gay men get it from their moms and women get it from their dads. that doesnt really work with the gay uncle that had a gay son also… so idk. i dont believe its a choice, most the time. because i have seen people go back and forth.

there was a book i read that said everyone is gay, it just depends on what percentage of gay you are. that someone can be lets say just 10% gay.  or 40% towards being gay. anyways different consept. i thought that was kind of interesting.

@peachacid:  i don’t know. I do know that out of the many gay friends/acquantances I have, they all have a gay immediate family member. Or at least bisexual. I think in some part it depends on how you were raised. Some people are raised to be open sexually and while they might identify themselves as “mostly straight” or “mostly gay”, sexuality is not a fine line

@peachacid:  If my gay child found an amazing partner, or had a successful career, I would love him/her regardless.  Hopefully they will at least adopt children – that would actually be my preference.

I believe that it is genetic, but it isn’t necessarily something passed on from one gay parent or grandparent to the next generations. There are plenty of genetic diseases and mutations (not saying that being gay is a disease) out there that a parent is a carrier for, but doesn’t necessarily have the disease themself.

@souza_2005:  Are gay people lacking something in their brain, do they simply not having something in their brain that others do, or do straight and bi people have an excess thing in their brain?

@AB Bride

the article that i read years ago i cant really remember so ild be kind of guessing, i think it said they had something straight men dont. but i tried to google it and found an article that said There is one brain part, called the anterior commissure, that’s bigger in gay men’s brains than in those of heterosexual males. whatever that means. But when you think about it people with down syndrom have an extra chromosome. so maybe it is that they have something more? dont see many studies on bi though.
