Is Homosexuality Biologically Determined?



A review of a major article published on the February 2012 issue of First Things by Stanton L. Jones (professor of psychology at Wheaton College)…as it has been said: Don’t judge a book by its cover.

The findings are quite remarkable, for example:


Early claims that homosexuality is biologically determined were based on a theory of pregnancy which posited that the mother’s body increasingly reacted against male hormones with successive male children, thereby causing a higher percentage of younger brothers to be incompletely masculinized, and so homosexual. This thesis that homosexuals have a disproportionate number of older brothers has now been disproven.

  1. Is is always amazing when one wastes time and money on trying to prove that a “dumb theory” is indeed dumb!!! When do you remember “choosing” to be heterosexual…..I must of been under the weather that day because I dont remember choosing!!

    • For that matter, when did you choose to be born? It was God’s will, as it was His will to make us men and women

      God created man in the image of himself, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them.
      God blessed them, saying to them, ‘Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it… Gen 1:27-28

      Now, I have to clarify what many people say regarding The Church hating Homosexuals. Quite the contrary, The Church loves them and understand them as we do with any person who is experiencing suffering or illness. And now I am getting to the point this article wants to make: Homosexuality is a psychological problem no different from depression or anxiety and as such should all people be treated with love and support as the Catechism of the Catholic Church states:

      Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teaches them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection. CCC (2359)
