Sexual orientation is the front-facing explanation for same-sex attraction. Behind this is where the true confusion is found.
Many in the fields of science and psychology have done extensive research on genetics, hormones, development, and social and cultural influences in hopes of finding an answer to why a person is heterosexual, bisexual, or homosexual. Despite all the research, no findings have emerged that permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factors.
Some believe that the actual genetics of homosexual orientation are probably polygenetic depending on the dose that one inherits. Many believe that nature and nurture both play a role. There is vast disagreement, though, regarding the opinion of choice regarding sexual orientation.
Homosexuality is much more than a simple sexual issue. It goes deep into our very being and begins at a young age.
Society has struggled to understand same-sex attraction outside of God’s boundaries and has developed several theories that sound right but do not supply a fully satisfactory answer.
