Just to make it perfectly clear to all what we are dealing with...
Please post a link to any post where I discussed anything close to "...the circumstances during the time of pregnancy..."
That came entirely out of your head. Entirely. But I suspect that in posting as different people you forget what any one of you has said and mistakenly attribute it to me.

TIA, he's trying to pull the same crapolla on you that he's been pulling on me. Goofballupagus is a writer of fiction.

To set the record straight, the radio station where I was news director was in Pasco, a small rural town in eastern Washington. It was an ABC affiliate, so for national news, I just flipped the switch at the top if the hour as I was instructed to do. The local news consisted of the farm report and mostly social news. An occasional accident on the nearby freeway. I did no editorializing or commentary.

Oh,yes. Frequent public service announcements that nearby Rattlesnake Mountain was aptly named, and that people hiking up there should keep their eyes open.

A news director is answerable to the station manager and Roger was essentially apolitical.

There should be no doubt by now in any intelligent person's mind that GfS is, indeed, a pathelogical liar.

My idols in the broadcast news business where people such as Eric Sevareid, Daniel Schorr, Walter Cronkite, and the granddaddy of them all, Edward R. Murrow.

During the time I was at KORD, Richard Nixon was president, and I had plenty of opinions about him. But my job was such that I didn't have an opportunity to voice them. But it was unnecessary, because other newsmen and commentators such as Eric Sevaried and others had plenty to say.

GfS apparently does not know the distinction between NEWS and EDITORIAL COMMENT. News deals with facts and answers the question, "what happened?" Commentary tries to ennunciate someone's opinion of why it happened, who's doing what to whom, and why are they doing it?

The six o'clock news on any of the "Big Three," ABC, CBS, and NBC, report the news. What events took place during the day. There may be a segment in the program for commentary, but that's always specified as "editorial opinion."

Fox News, on the other hand, does not separate news from opinion, and their programming is almost entirely opinion. They are anything but "fair and balanced."

I think Goofy reveals a great deal about himself with his allegations about my activities as a news man. He's not painting anywhere near an accurate picture of what a news man or even a news director's options are. They are required to follow the policies of the station. If you don't like the policy, don't work there. And the station where I worked as news director did not HAVE a political policy. Not that we didn't have opinions, but we had to keep them to ourselves.

If Goofball went to work as a newsman, assuming he could speak good English in general, speak standard American English (pronunciation), had a good, listenable voice, could write cohesive, grammatically correct sentences, had a fierce dedication to presenting the facts, and kept his opinions to himself unless assigned to do an opinion piece (which would be vetted first by the station manager or others in authority), then he might be allowed in the building.

But with what HE seems to think a newsman can get away with, he'd get his ass kicked out the door on the first day!

I think that in these threads, with his wild, imaginative, and denigrating fictions about various people about whom he knows nothing, he has more that graphically demonstrated his "fierce dedication to presenting the facts."

I am setting the record straight regarding my job as a news director, about which YOU hatched up a tissue of lies. This was for anyone out there who might blunder in and think you know anything about anything.

And what I said was that, according to knowledgeable people in the field, the sexual orientation of a fetus may be determined by the realease if hormones in utero after the genitals of the fetus are determined, and if mistimed, can affect the sexual orientation of the child. I did NOT say that the time of the pregnancy affects the fetus (whatever the hell that's supposed to mean).

You DO have trouble understanding plain English, apparently.

"In other words....IT'S NOT 'GENETIC'?????????...."

It IS most certainly genetic. A combination of genes, possibly recessive, which sometimes express themselves, but not every time. The genetic combination is believed to be carried in the female line of the family, but generally does not affect them directly

There is general agreement among geneticists that sexual orientation IS genetic, but the genes do not always express themselves, which is the nature of recessive genes.

Basic Mendel.

Firth(who said he was going to stop this...but won't..or can't): "There is general agreement among geneticists that sexual orientation IS genetic, but the genes do not always express themselves, which is the nature of recessive genes."

But receptors DO manifest their activity and their influence over behavior, but they CAN be 're-trained'....and that is MORE than a 'general agreement' with psychologists, geneticists, rehab centers, religious folks, and politicians.....how do you think they get you to leave common sense, and make emotional issues out of thin air...then exploit their 'followers'???
It seems now that TWO of your influential 'studies' and your learned friends have stated as much....but then look the other way, and gloss over it, just to push that it is all 'genetic'...when it is clearly not.
Is a cup, a cup of tea, till you put tea in it???
Hardwired genetics can determine a male or female, right or left handedness, blond or brunette, two arms and two legs...but what you do with all those things is dependent on behavior. The notion that 'There's a woman trapped in this (male) body', is complete and utter nonsense...HOWEVER, how one INTERPRETS certain sensitivities, then attributes those 'feelings', is just a matter of INTERPRETATION and PERCEPTION of how and what someone THINKS is feminine(or masculine). Receptors influence what and how you CHOOSE to satisfy the urges of the receptors needs. Genetics will give one a REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM..FOR REPRODUCTION or the species..any species...one's fantasies of how to manifest sexual(reproductive) urges, again is NOT necessarily attributed to genes....however, the 'equipment' to reproduce is.
To understand the role of receptors, and how the 'create needs' emotional or otherwise, is on a video link that I already provided on here. Maybe you should re-visit it....and BTW, before anyone begins to criticize the video, take a hard look at the people behind it's production and writing....monsters in their fields!...and carry more weight than the 'studies' you put up!

Don, when you argue with an idiot like GfS on his terms, he wins. There is only one question: why shouldn't gay people be treated like everyone else in our laws? It makes no difference if it's a choice, it it's genetic, if it's caused by early childhood nurture, or anything. None of that matters. What matters is that it exists, people actualy are gay, and we're supposed to treat everyone equally, both ethically and legally. That's the only debate.

Final word.

From the Can-West Global News Service:

A Chicago genome researcher says he has found a group of genes that strongly influence whether a man is homosexual--not a single "gay gene," but a group of genes acting together. This provides at least part of the explanation for what makes men gay, a question that gene scientists have sought to solve for more than a decade.

The University of Illinois at Chicago and U.S. National Institutes of Health searched through the genes of 456 men from 146 families—each of which has at least two gay brothers, and have essentially determined that there are three genes, two genes from the X chromosome and one from the Y chromosome, acting in combination.

There is concern among some geneticists as to how some expectant parents will respond to this information. The fear is that some parents, if, prenatal DNA testing shows the fetus carries this combination of genes, may opt to terminated the pregnancy. An abortion of an otherwise perfectly normal human being—who is destined to be homosexual.

And to some parents, this may pose a real dilemma. Those who are opposed to both homosexuality—AND to abortion, who oftentimes are religious, holding a rigid set of beliefs on both subjects.

The research is reported in the Journal of Human Genetics.

Here is a link that goes into these areas: (if you are REALLY interested).
Genetic Studies
Hormonal Studies
Neuroanatomic Studies
References

Have fun!...it covers the results of all the main thoughts on the subject

An excerpt:..The increasing claims of being "born that way" parallels the rising political activism of homosexual organisations, who politicise the issue of homosexual origins . In the 1970s, approximately ten percent of homosexuals claimed to be "born homosexual" according to a large scale survey.[3]
However, in a survey in the 1980s, with the homosexual rights movement increasingly becoming active, thirty-five percent claimed to be born that way.[4]"

Another except:.. "There are some homosexuals who would like to and probably could change their sexual orientation. Because some homosexual groups maintain contrary to the bulk of scientific evidence that preferential or exclusive homosexuality can never be changed, these people may be discouraged from seeking adequate psychiatric consultation. What is more deplorable is that this myth may also be accepted by some physicians...The physician who is not alert to the orientation of the homosexual patient may not challenge the belief in sexual irreversibility and arrange for appropriate referral[12]." It is possible that the Council on Scientific Affairs of the American Medical Association may review its policies due to lobbying by pro-homosexual organisations."

Another excerpt: "(c) Another factor which makes genetic theories implausible are cultural considerations relating to attitudes towards homosexual behaviour. The prevalence of such behaviour increases in cultures indifferent to such behaviour, and a casual attitude towards sex in general...


Dr. Baron, from the Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University, New York, commented in the British Medical Journal recently that " it would be difficult to envisage a change in the prevalence of a genetic trait merely in response to changing cultural norms[8] ."

....................................................................
The link that I have for the explaining how receptors work, and they do a great job, can be found at: (this link only explains how they work, it does NOT address the homosexual question....just how receptors work.
Here's the whole movie.....the part on receptors comes out post mid point Be patient, there is a lot of great stuff in here!...and NOTE the references!!!

Check it out if you wish to NOT remain unlearned in the subject other than the 'political' view, which is rather limited and skewed!!

GfS

P.S. I posted about their results more than three years ago, not from these sources..but watching it unfold as political agendas were affecting known scientific facts, and causing psychologists to adopt their views...even before their bogus, incomplete studies. That is also covered in the other link I gave you.

We'll see how many are really interested in the FACTS rather than the notion!

Here's something from 2010"

"Recent Article from ScienceDaily

February 2010: Potential Evolutionary Role for Same-Sex Attraction

Male homosexuality doesn't make complete sense from an evolutionary point of view. It appears that the trait is heritable, but because homosexual men are much less likely to produce offspring than heterosexual men, shouldn't the genes for this trait have been extinguished long ago? What value could this sexual orientation have, that it has persisted for eons even without any discernible reproductive advantage?

One possible explanation is what evolutionary psychologists call the "kin selection hypothesis." What that means is that homosexuality may convey an indirect benefit by enhancing the survival prospects of close relatives. Specifically, the theory holds that homosexual men might enhance their own genetic prospects by being "helpers in the nest." By acting altruistically toward nieces and nephews, homosexual men would perpetuate the family genes, including some of their own.

Two evolutionary psychologists, Paul Vasey and Doug VanderLaan of the University of Lethbridge, Canada tested this idea for the past several years on the Pacific island of Samoa. They chose Samoa because males who prefer men as sexual partners are widely recognized and accepted there as a distinct gender category -- called fa'afafine -- neither man nor woman. The fa'afafine tend to be effeminate, and exclusively attracted to adult men as sexual partners. This clear demarcation makes it easier to identify a sample for study.

Past research has shown that the fa'afafine are much more altruistically inclined toward their nieces and nephews than either Samoan women or heterosexual men. They are willing to babysit a lot, tutor their nieces and nephews in art and music, and help out financially -- paying for medical care and education and so forth. In a new study, the scientists set out to unravel the psychology of the fa'afafine, to see if their altruism is targeted specifically at kin rather than kids in general.

They recruited a large sample of fa'afafine, and comparable samples of women and heterosexual men. They gave them all a series of questionnaires, measuring their willingness to help their nieces and nephews in various ways -- caretaking, gifts, teaching -- and also their willingness to do these things for other, unrelated kids. The findings, reported on-line this week in the journal Psychological Science, lend strong support to the kin selection idea. Compared to Samoan women and heterosexual men, the fa'afafine showed a much weaker link between their avuncular -- or uncle like -- behavior and their altruism toward kids generally. This cognitive dissociation, the scientists argue, allows the fa'afafine to allocate their resources more efficiently and precisely to their kin -- and thus enhance their own evolutionary prospects.

To compensate for being childless, each fa'afafine would have to somehow support the survival of two additional nieces or nephews who would otherwise not have existed. "If kin selection is the sole mechanism by which genes for male same-sex sexual attraction are maintained over time," the fa'afafine must be "super uncles" to earn their evolutionary keep, explains Vasey. Consequently, Vasey suggests "that the fa'afafine's avuncularity probably contributes to the evolutionary survival of genes for male same-sex sexual attraction, but is unlikely to entirely offset the costs of not reproducing."

Do these findings have any meaning outside of Samoa? Yes and no. Samoan culture is very different from most Western cultures. Samoan culture is very localized, and centered on tight-knit extended families, whereas Western societies tend to be highly individualistic and homophobic. Families are also much more geographically dispersed in Western cultures, diminishing the role that bachelor uncles can play in the extended family, even if they choose to. But in this sense, the researchers say, Samoa's communitarian culture may be more -- not less -- representative of the environment in which male same-sex sexuality evolved eons ago. In that sense, it's not the bachelor uncle who is poorly adapted to the world, but rather the modern Western world that has evolved into an unwelcoming place."

The above article is very good. The thing that puzzles me is why GfS chose to post it. Perhaps it's because of the final paragraph, in which the author seems to be trying to negate what the previous part of the article is saying—and which, up until that point, which makes a great deal of sense from an evolutionary standpoint.

Note:   In Indonesia a few years back, the government tried to encourage homosexuality in an effort to slow Indonesia's burgeoning population problem.   Despite persuasion and offering certain encouragements to those who would "opt" to become homosexual, the attempt was a complete failure.

Despite the government offered incentives, no one "chose" to change their sexual orientation.

I case you missed the point, it indicates pretty clearly that one does not simply choose to change one's sexual orientation, even when it might be advantageous to do so.

The real underlying "proof" of it all? The certainty that every word of the Bible was determined by the finger of God jamming into the brain of each writer who contributed to the Bible, pouring in content which then poured out through the writer's pen unto the page.

Nonetheless, its in the receptors, and influence of them both physiologically, and in the neurological system that is the major influence. Studies show that this influence of receptors, in a stressed mother, is the reason the hypothalamus enlarges....plus, as I've said before in different threads, and different circumstances, "The energy you put into a system, tends to change that system!"
Certain genes with certain markers tend to be more affected than others..thus the highly biased 'studies' are heralded for 'finding the magic gene'.....nope!..they found the ones more affected by stressed hormones, cause by the receptors!
Even Don's links say as much, but he didn't know what they glossed over.....besides, he WANTED to believe in was genetic, so he blinded himself to taking in ALL the information, objectively.
...and that may go for some of you 'casual observers'. What is needed, is the 'impartial observer'......then it ain't so bad...the chips fall where they fall, and don't have to answer or promote a predetermined outcome.

Don T, You must be short on comprehension. I said that the video link is NOT about homosexuality, one way or the other, but there was a segment on 'receptors' and what they do, and how they function. The fact that the video, was dealing with different subjects, related to the different speakers, on their various subjects, really has NO bearing on what they were talking about that was not related.
I do commend you, however, for at least watching the video. I think you may agree, that the segment on receptors was very illuminating....may even shed some light on the subject at hand...and that is 'receptors'.

Sorry, hit the wrong button.

Because 'receptors' have a function of setting up the neurological system in the fetus. Being as the fetus, is attached directly to the mother's biological system for nourishment, and the formation of all the various functions, that a child is born with....circulatory, digestion, neurological, reproductive etc etc....OK?...now when the mother is stressed, or bitter, or resentful...or even happy and calm, those emotions she is going through, and the neurological signals, are being directly sent to the fetus. The receptors, being formed, in essence, are being programmed, in the womb, to be predisposed, as to the signals they are going to respond to, once born. for instance, if something strikes you as 'funny', you laugh. Something strikes you as 'sad', you may have a 'less than happy' response....If a child is born, with a predisposition to 'resent', or resent the 'father figure', then he will be readily 'triggered', to have those 'receptors' respond and be activated, as they were in the womb..much like a child can be born with a chemical addiction, 'receptors' are predisposed to respond, but not to a physical/chemical addiction, but to an emotional 'addiction'(if you will). Upon satisfying their need, to transmit neurological signals, they then are 'gratified' by the brain releasing dopamine. This is pretty well explained in the video.

I will pick this up a little later, but A have an appointment to get ready for. Just think about what I laid out for you. It is a non biased anatomical FACT. How it ties in, I'll get into when I get back.
Ignore, at this point, any half-witted blusterer trying to dispute this as a political point of view...it is strictly medical, and accurate.

Gfs, just a thought or two:
In seventy years of life, I have encountered a very few people who might equal you in your tendency to spew out totally unwarrented vile things about others. Fewer still tended to besmirch the family members, of whom they they knew nothing, of those they slandered.
I have known and spent extensive time with so many hundreds of conservative-to-very-strictly-fundamentalist Christians that I don't know where to start on on actual estimate. I may disagree with a lot of their beliefs now, but very, very few of them have been habitually foul-mouthed at all. I'm aware of Fred Phelps, and Ann Coulter, but I've been largely fortunate enough to know their ilk only from the media.
In all these years, I cannot think of any single person I've encountered before who with one breath expressed a commitment to Christianity or Christian morality, and with the next breath pumped out anything like the slime that you've tried to inflict on people on a regular basis.
You may now proceed to say why you consider these observations to be idiotic.

Goofball's little dissertation on "receptors" and the mother's moods and attitudes and such being transmitted to the fetus is something I have heard before.

In 1950, science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard branched out into his own brand of psychology when he published "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health."

Hubbard maintained that things that affected the moods and attitudes of an expectant mother were perceived by the fetus and stored in the subconscious "reactive mind" as what Hubbard called "engrams." Engrams, of course, cause all kinds of psychological problems—the whole catalog—and trained "auditors" could "clear" a person (patient) of their engrams and restore them to perfect mental health.

A whole batch of people jumped on the bandwagon, took the very short course in "auditing," and set themselves up in business.

During the Fifties, I was stomping around the University of Washington campus using a pair of forearm crutches. I had several people approach me and say that if I'd sign up for several "auditing sessions," I could throw the crutches away and walk normally.

Odd! I always thought poliomyelitis was caused by a virus. I didn't know that I got it because my mother was feeling cranky when she was pregnant with me!

It wasn't long before the appropriate Medical and Psychiatric organizations declared Dianetics a "pseudoscience."

And shortly after that, Hubbard, fearing bad publicity for he and his followers, and such things as charges of malpractice, declared Dianetics to be a "religion," and called it "The Church of Scientology," thus claiming the protections of Freedom of Religion.

The rest is history.

What Goofball is saying about the mother's mood affecting the fetus through "receptors" sounds exactly like what L. Ron Hubbard was peddling in "Dianetics."

He claims he's a "family counselor." Dianetics auditor, perhaps? Or a priest in the Church of Scientology?

Guest-from Sanity, are you saying that the mother's moods, experiences, hormone swings, traumas or pleasures have a direct influence on the developing brain of the foetus, and therefore will produce character traits and even determine sexuality? If so, have any studies been done on identical twins, (who presumably are subject to identical influences in utero) and do they have identical personality traits after birth and in later life? Furthermore, are there examples of identical twin gay siblings? (This is all starting to sound horribly like a Mengele theory of eugenics. He apparently was most interested in twins, for equally sinister reasons.) In my experience of twins among my pupils, each pair of identical twins showed an amazing difference in their personalities. One was more timid, more withdrawn and more compliant etc while the other was invariably bolder, more confident and sometimes more naughty. I have to repeat that even if a child is 'born gay', it doesn't matter, and they can BE gay and marry etc as they wish. Whyever not? Perhaps the homophobics here are travelling down the road of 'identifying' gay foetuses in the womb and aborting (ie murdering) them to prevent the birth of (gasp!) yet another gay abomination. I DO hope NOT!
