Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX) Biography

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

“No one is born gay. All scientific studies including those by gay scientists, have not found any gay gene or gay brain center. There is no medical test for a gay gene. There is no scientific or DNA test for sexual orientation. Ex-gays are living proof that homosexual orientation is not fixed permanently.”
