Exploring the Gay Brain
Barry Artiste, Now Public Contributor
Gays used to say,"We're Here, We're Queer, Get used to it!"
Now it seems science have uncovered a new spin!
Now Gays can proudly march and say "We're Here, We're an Orientation of Lifestyle of Conflicting Moral values by some, but not by others, due to a Chemical imbalance in our Brain according to science, Get used to it, cause we are really friggin confused as Hell!"
In closing, does it really friggin matter? They're Here, and have been since the Dawn of Time. Get Used to It!
Last month, when the California Supreme Court declared same-sex marriage a constitutional right, it repeatedly invoked the precedent of interracial marriage. An attorney involved in the case protested: "There is no evidence to establish that a homosexual lifestyle is an immutable characteristic such as race."
He's wrong. There's lots of evidence. More of it just came out this week. It's been driving the gay rights debate all along, away from the clutches of religion and into the clutches of science. The trend is inexorable, but its implications are about to change. The culture war over homosexuality is dying -- and a chemical war is threatening to take its place.
Homosexuality used to be regarded as a lifestyle, something you freely chose or rejected. We discouraged, condemned and punished it like any other sin.
Then along came science. Study after study found differences between gay and straight brains.
Homosexuality came to be viewed less as a lifestyle and more as an orientation, too deeply rooted to be freely rejected. Gay activists embraced and trumpeted these studies. Public opinion shifted. Punishment and condemnation began to subside.
