Eight major studies of identical twins in Australia, the U.S., and Scandinavia during the last two decades all arrive at the same conclusion: gays were not born that way.
“At best genetics is a minor factor,” says Dr. Neil Whitehead, PhD. Whitehead worked for the New Zealand government as a scientific researcher for 24 years, then spent four years working for the United Nations and International Atomic Energy Agency. Most recently, he serves as a consultant to Japanese universities about the effects of radiation exposure. His PhD is in biochemistry and statistics.
Identical twins have the same genes or DNA. They are nurtured in equal prenatal conditions. If homosexuality is caused by genetics or prenatal conditions and one twin is gay, the co-twin should also be gay.
“Because they have identical DNA, it ought to be 100%,” Dr. Whitehead notes. But the studies reveal something else. “If an identical twin has same-sex attraction the chances the co-twin has it are only about 11% for men and 14% for women.”
Because identical twins are always genetically identical, homosexuality cannot be genetically dictated. “No-one is born gay,” he notes. “The predominant things that create homosexuality in one identical twin and not in the other have to be post-birth factors.”
Dr. Whitehead believes same-sex attraction (SSA) is caused by “non-shared factors,” things happening to one twin but not the other, or a personal response to an event by one of the twins and not the other.
For example, one twin might have exposure to pornography or sexual abuse, but not the other. One twin may interpret and respond to their family or classroom environment differently than the other. “These individual and idiosyncratic responses to random events and to common environmental factors predominate,” he says.
The first very large, reliable study of identical twins was conducted in Australia in 1991, followed by a large U.S. study about 1997. Then Australia and the U.S. conducted more twin studies in 2000, followed by several studies in Scandinavia, according to Dr. Whitehead.
“Twin registers are the foundation of modern twin studies. They are now very large, and exist in many countries. A gigantic European twin register with a projected 600,000 members is being organized, but one of the largest in use is in Australia, with more than 25,000 twins on the books.”
A significant twin study among adolescents shows an even weaker genetic correlation. In 2002 Bearman and Brueckner studied tens of thousands of adolescent students in the U.S. The same-sex attraction concordance between identical twins was only 7.7% for males and 5.3% for females—lower than the 11% and 14% in the Australian study by Bailey et al conducted in 2000.
In the identical twin studies, Dr. Whitehead has been struck by how fluid and changeable sexual identity can be.
Just for the record:
If you think this post is somehow contradictory to what I think re Jewish Genetics, then you obviously misinterpreted my stance….. I have never denied that environment and nurture play huge parts in shaping all life forms into what they are…
Environment can encourage or hinder or even prevent NATURAL GENETIC TENDENCIES, depending on how extreme the environmental conditions are….. Regarding the Fags, it obviously takes some sort of disgusting abuse or perversion to turn them into Fags…. That’s environment or nurture for ya!
If all Jews were raised away from us and kept out of our societies, then their genetics wouldn’t be relevent…… It would be our ideal healthy environment to neutralise them!
Genetics are #1 with me: Whites create, Blacks rape and murder, Jews rob, lie and murder, Cats meow, and Dogs bark….. That is basic genetic behaviour…. Environment, nurture etc are all secondary factors in the overall scheme of things…
One important thing I should clarify: The homos are not a “racially or ethnically” quantifiable group and they’re not a distinct species either…. (as much as I’d like to think so….) The fact that homos exist in all races/ethnicities and even some other species, shows that homosexuality occurs mainly as a result of environment/nurture, and therefore genetics must have little to do with it……(although, NOT NOTHING to do with it!)
If anything here doesn’t make sense then ask in the comments……
