Con to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"
"The question 'What causes homosexuality' is both politically suspect and scientifically misconceived. Politically suspect because it is so frequently motivated by an agenda of prevention and cure. Scientifically misconceived because it presumes that heterosexuality is so well understood, so obviously the 'natural' evolutionary consequence of reproductive advantage, that only deviations from it are theoretically problematic. ...Experience-based theories of sexual orientation have not fared well empirically in recent years.... But before we all become geneticists, biopsychologists, or neuroanatomists, it seemed to me worth another try. In particular, I believed that the theoretical and empirical building blocks for a coherent, experience-based developmental theory of sexual orientation were already scattered about in the literature."
