Erik Holland Biography

Title:
Writer and creator of HomoSexInfo.org
Position:
Pro to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"
Reasoning:

“‘[H]homosexuality is partly innate and partly socially acquired, i.e., various social circumstances make people predisposed toward homosexuality homosexual. [2004]’

The passage above describes my attitude before I started working on the book…I ended up reevaluating my stance on homosexuality after some enquiry. My new stance is what you will find summarized on the back cover of my book, i.e., homosexuals are born that way.”
