BOOK NOTICE

HELLO  GOOD  PEOPLE. . . .

I received this notice about a book which examines the issue of sexual orientation.  Easy reading, btw.  The link takes you to the adv/review on Amazon.  Check the preview links which permits you to read some of the material directly from the book.

 I'm writing to let you know about a recent book by the "gay-brain" scientist, Simon LeVay. It's title is "Gay, Straight, and the Reason Why: The Science of Sexual Orientation." It finally puts to rest the old "chosen lifestyle" theory of homosexuality which has done our community so much harm. Dr. LeVay has spoken at quite a few PFLAG chapters over the years. It would be great if you could let your membership know about this book, or post a link to it on your Facebook wall. Here's a link to the page which has more information about it: http://www.amazon.com/Gay-Straight-Reason-Why-Orientation/dp/0199737673/ref=cm_cr_dp_orig_subj
 
This is not an Amazon promotion. . .. ;-)   justin

I don't need any "pointy-headed intellectuals" (for anyone tragically old enough to remember George Wallace) to educate me about sex or any other sciency stuff. Rick Perry, Santorum, Bachmann, etc., etc., ad nauseum, have assured me that being gay's a choice.

Obviously they've chosen to be straight (although the jury's out on what choices Bachmann's husband makes) and so can everyone else!

I've always thought the "chosen lifestyle" thing was a load of old codswallop. We don't choose anything. Why do some people like pickles on their burgers while others don't? You don't CHOOSE to like pickles! You either like them or you don't because you're TOLD to hehe. It's a chemical conspiracy. We're all robots at the mercy of Nature's whim.

I don't think the homosexuality is a choice crowd will be convinced by science.
