University Professor of Humanities & Media Studies at the University of the Arts
Con to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"
"[I]n nature, procreation is the single, relentless rule. That is the norm. Our sexual bodies were designed for reproduction. Penis fits vagina: no fancy linguistic game-playing can change that biologic fact... No one is 'born gay.' The idea is ridiculous... Thus homosexuality, in my view, is an adaptation, not an inborn trait."
Experts Individuals with PhDs or equivalent advanced degrees in fields relevant to human sexuality. Also top-level government officials (such as foreign leaders, US presidents, Founding Fathers, Supreme Court Justices, members of legislative bodies, cabinet members, military leaders, etc.) with positions relevant to human sexuality.
