Hi. I am an undergraduate Psychology major at Alcorn State University, and I must say that I find this topic very interesting because one of my best friends is a homosexual. I also know several other homosexuals and lesbians. Although I am definitely heterosexual, I do sympathize with them in their choices because physiological reseach points out to us that there are several biological syndromes and disorders that could be the cause of homosexuality. For example, androgen insensitivity disorder and Turner's Syndrome. I mean, why would a person purposely set out on a journey through life to be constantly judged, chastised, and isolated from society. I don't believe that all homosexuals experience these rare phenomena, but permit me to use a cliche in saying that I do believe that the majority of these people are just playing the hand that they were dealt. None of us recieve the opportunity to choose who our parents are/were, what our gender is, or what our background will consist of, but we have to do the best with what we have in the amount of time that we are allotted because just as we did not choose to be brought into this world or our birthdate, we do not know the day, hour, minute, or second of our demise. So, we should put a greater effort into doing something more constructive like finding a cure for the various forms of cancer, AIDS, other physical and mental illnesses instead of debating over personal choices or the biological inheritance of sexual preferences.
