This is ridiculous,
Sexual Orientation is a CHOICE.
It is just giving in to a wrong, sinful desire.
Do children choose to have the desire to steal or lie?
Should they just  give in to that desire?
This is analogous to the concept of homosexual desire.
I guess if I have a desire to be with three guys or four girls,
or have a desire to steal or lie I should have the right to do so.

Should we accept Child Molesters for who they are?
Should we accept those who have sex with animals for who they are?
Should we accept murders for who they are?
Evolution states we are just animals anyways right?
Where is the line drawn?
Stop helping people justify their sinful ways!!

Really enjoying these lectures; you're very humorous and great at explaining the concepts :). I love the links you make to reality through personal experiences.

Motivation, Part III

  • Masters and Johnson described the human response cycle of excitement, plateau, orgasm, and resolution/refractory phase
  • Alfred Kinsey also did work on human sexuality and created the continuum of heterosexuality to homosexuality
  • Teens have engaged in sexual behavior and there are a variety of factors contributing to sexual behavior and pregnancy
  • There are many factors to sexual orientation with the most recent science concluding that is not a choice, but rather biologically created
  • Humans are social creatures and have a need to belong to groups and be connected with each other
  • Motives can conflict, with options being both desirable and undesirable
