I have many gay friends who attest that they've known the were gay since they were toddlers... but some religious sects condemn this... but If its a gene thing, how can it be their fault? can we blame them?

Suppossedly it's a disorder that they cannot help. We cannot blame them in any way for it. I understand this completely that it is not their fault, yet I still think less of them. I know it's wrong but it's no different than thinking more or less of cool people, or red heads, or blue eyes or any other factors. It's used to judge and discrimate, and we do this when they cannot ever change it.

I know some people can be uncomfortable around some of them, i am too, at times. I don't think less of them but it makes me uncomfortable being with some of them. I think its because whether they admit it or not, their actions are not incongruent with their bodies. We see a boy acting like a girl or a girl acting like a boy.

Are Gays born or made? The short answer is "Both!". There are gays who swear they have always been that way, that they did not decide to become Gay. Why should we say they are mistaken or liars? I believe them. There is also no shortage of people who will try anything. So, I fully believe there are those who would choose to be Gay. Therefore, instead of saying which is it, "Born or made?", ask what is the ratio of born to made?

that's a thought... maybe finding the ratio would eventually bring out the best conclusion. Is it safe to conclude that if there is a great difference between the made to the born... the grater number would be the norm and the lesser, the exceptions to the rule?

Gays are born due to lack of substance. When women are pregnant, their actions and surrounding activities contibute to their offspring. As an adult, if you hang out with a bunch of Pilgrims, you will intake some of thier activities. Your offspring could become a Pilgrim. Here it is in a nutshell. Gays are due to the fact that they lack a requirement to be fully make or female and hence when you fall into your comfort zone, you are right there with the inner being. There's hope for you so if you are willing, you can be altered to be brought back to real life and not fantasy.

for me both of which are factors why are some men are gays. we cant blame anyone if its a gene disorder we can do something about it unless if gene transplant is possible then you'll just have to have an operation for a genes change..lols..kidding aside we cant deny tha fact that in most cases peer influence is one of the most common factor..some gays choose to be a silent type bacause they were alone but if they got a friend with the same eventually he'll gonna open up to public..anyway, gay or not they are all human and besides..gays are amazing and good friends

I believe some probably are born this way and some it is due to what happens it their life that changes them , for example a female who was viciously raped or a woman who was married and was battered daily . I do believe our experiences in life affect what we will become . Like you said if they were to find out for sure that they were born like this , then how can we blame them for something they really couldn't control , because the truth is , we don't control who we fall in love with , it is something that just happens and the same goes for the person who may have had something traumatic happen to them that made them change from who they were to who they prefer to spend there time with later on .
