Truth Wins Out Biography

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

“Today, biology, psychology and empirical wisdom strongly suggest that sexual orientation is an intrinsic part of one’[s] nature. In recent years, the coming out of notables such as Ellen DeGeneres, Mary Cheney, Elton John, Rosie O’Donnell and former New Jersey governor James McGreevey has reinforced this point.”
