-John Hopkins: No Scientific Evidence That People Are Born Gay

Popular cultural ‘knowledge’ contends that gay and transgender folks are born that way. A recent definitive scientific study, completed by scholars at John Hopkins University, indicates that there is no scientific evidence to support ‘fact.’ Here’s the story from the Christian Post:

Distinguished scholars at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland released a new 143-page report on Monday that argues that there is not enough definitive scientific evidence available to suggest that gay, lesbian and transgender individuals are born with a certain sexual orientation or gender identity.

In the three-part report published by The New Atlantis, Lawrence Mayer, a scholar-in-residence at Johns Hopkins University’s psychiatry department and a professor of statistics and biostatistics at Arizona State University, and Paul McHugh, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Johns Hopkins, take on prevailing claims that sexual orientation and gender dysphoria are caused by natural traits. …

In the first part, the report argues that there is insufficient evidence to claim that heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual attractions are an innate trait that people are born with.

Response: You can bet that the scientists at John Hopkins were hoping for a different outcome. Since the conclusions of this research contradict popular notions and theory, you can also bet that the results were confirmed over and over again before they were released. Also, look for all sorts of pseudo scientific studies in the near future to try and overturn the inconvenient findings of the John Hopkins research.

It would have been nice to have this study earlier when everyone was saying that same-sex marriage needed to become legal since homosexuals ‘were born that way.’ Now this research shows that it is not necessarily so. Also this study concludes that at the most genetics may be a contributing factor. Note that this little caveat (‘may’) was probably placed in the study to ameliorate the bad news for gay and LGBT folks since there seems to be little evidence to actually support it.            *Top
