Position:
Con to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"
Reasoning:

“Americans for too long have been pummeled with the idea that people are ‘born gay.’ The people who most need to hear the truth are those who mistakenly believe they have no chance themselves for change. It is both more compassionate and truthful to give them hope than to serve them up politically motivated, unproven creations like the ‘gay gene.'”
