If homosexuality is genetic - couldn't homophobia also be genetic?

Homosexuals have stated that they have no control over their attraction to the same sex.  No amount of "training" will change their attraction to the same sex.

Similarly, homophobes may have no control over their homophobia.  No amount of name calling is going to shame them into changing.

True.

You can't fight your genes so why try and force anyone into being something they are not ;)

well, you're already in the books ..... the issue is, are you in the book ?

You make a very good point but you know the mindset of Liberals and LGBT groups.

Only their excuses are politically correct. There can be no excuses for anyone who disagrees with them.

We could carry their ludicrous excuses into every part of life.

It's not the criminals fault, it's not the fault of any person cheating on their spouse, not the fault of bullies who make fun of others, not the fault of the theif or the arsonist, etc. etc.

IT'S THE NO ONE'S FAULT CULTURE! Gee, kind of like I've been saying for years.

But as you noticed, it is the fault of those on the Right and all people who disagree with the LGBT agendas.

We have no excuses for what we believe or do. We can not say we were born that way!

Side: True.

It was bad enough when you were treating gays like special sinners. Now you want to treat them like criminals. You are a truly evil person. No wonder you are a baby murderer.

Yes, it is not your fault. You were born just the way you are. You were born to create debate topics with a humorous overtone.

Therefore, any humor that you dish out is not your fault. You are merely doing what you were born to do.

If i were you, I would try and force every public school to create special bathrooms for those who were born with a humorous personality.

Why should you be forced to use bathrooms where there are serious people?

Yes indeed. Let's call it the @sshole gene. Have you got it? Yes? Maybe scientists need to dissect you to study it closer.

Side: True.

Careful. They may elect to dissect homosexuals instead

BTW does that mean that gay men have the @sshole loving gene ;)

I feel like homophobics do have control over their views. And I don't think that homophobia is genetic rather it is to do with the way they were raised.

A phobia is an irrational fear or identifying being extremely adverse to some thing

Homophobia is a negative attitude towards a persons sexuality

Attitudes are not genetic they are learned ways of thinking that can be altered

I don't think a person could help it if he/she found homosexuality especially unnatural or wrong for whatever reason if that is how, at a young age, it was learned to be. However, I believe this to be due in large to social conditioning, so a person has the potential to change an aversion to the topic at hand. To answer the general question: no, homophobia is not genetic, it is learned.
