Are People Really Born Gay?

Tonight on SistersTalk Radio, we aired a previously recorded podcast that addresses the age-old question: are people really born gay?

Fellow BlogTalKRadio host Jay and his guest Jude discuss a recent report by the APA that states:

There is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay, or lesbian orientation. Although much research has examined the possible genetic, hormonal, developmental, social, and cultural influences on sexual orientation, no findings have emerged that permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factor or factors. Many think that nature and nurture both play complex roles; most people experience little or no sense of choice about their sexual orientation.

Jude gives great background on gay gene research and suggests that heterosexual women might be the root cause of homosexuality.

AAA Makes It to Anti-Gay Organization’s Shit List

The American Automobile Association (AAA) has started recognizing families consisting of same-sex partners as a real family (imagine that!) and that move has the anti-gay organization AFA fired up – again. AAA has stated that the company will provide the same membership and discounts for gay married couples as they do for straight married couples.

Equality Florida is asking everyone to send a letter of support to AAA thanking them for their support. The AFA is asking its anti-gay followers to write AAA and ask them to “reverse their policy recognizing homosexual couples as if they were ‘married’ for purposes of AAA Family Memberships.”

Someone help me understand how AAA’s decision is hurting married heterosexual couples. I think I’m a fairly intelligent person but I’ll need your help with that one.
