"Genetic" is code for "blameless". That's why the conservatives, mired in a culture of moral culpability, reject it so strenuously and why gays cling to it. How politically revolutionary it would be for someone to stand up and say, "I *chose* to be gay." I think our collective teeth would fall out.

BTW, good to see you back in the blogging saddle...

Thanks, I'm going to try to keep it up now that the holidays are done.

I have expressed the same desire to see people bold enough to own their sexuality, choice or not. "Genetic" could also be code for "avoidable", which makes it a rather short-sighted position for us. Whether or not genetic research gets to the point where a "gay gene" can be isolated and possibly avoided, we should still be making the case to future parents that allowing their child to be born gay can be a desirable outcome. The perverse irony of that unlikely scenario rests, of course, on the supposition that many gay activists are right, and genetics are solely responsible for who we are.

Perfectly put, Sprague.
