A new “educational” cartoon is sure to spark a good ole’ American debate over whether homosexuality is a choice or a biological trait.
The short cartoon pits a man named “Christian” (pun intended) who thinks homosexuality is a choice which can be “fixed” through several different mediums, including the controversial “Ex-Gay” therapy, a method of attaining abstinence from homosexual behaviors, lessening of homosexual temptations, strengthening their sense of masculine or feminine identity, correcting distorted styles of relating with members of the same and opposite gender.
Christian’s opposition comes from two stereotypical gay characters, George and Marta, both of whom represent “Science.” Martha’s snarky sarcasm underlies everything that is wrong with this video, but that aside, the two characters try their hardest to convince the anti-science “Christian” that he’s wrong.
Initially, the short cartoon starts off by lambasting homophobic explanations of yesteryear, from the absence of fathers and overbearing mothers as an explanation for gay men to phallic worship and men hate as the causative factors that produce lesbians.
Continuing down the ignorance train, you have “Christian,” who claims that homosexuality is unnatural in nature, which is absurd since there is evidence that many animals engage in homosexual behavior and lifestyles.
The main evidence that “Science” offers is that of Genes, Hormones, and Birth Order. According to “Science,” genes have such a factor in human behavior, up to 70% of males born with an identical twin who is gay are gay themselves.
Additionally, the chances increase of producing a male child who is gay the more males a woman has. So, according to “Science,” with every boy a woman produces, her body tries to feminize the “foreign” invader to her womb, producing antibodies and antigens that increases the chances of a gay son being born.
Here’s the video, judge for yourself:
After being presented with “Science’s” best evidence, “Christian’s” ignorance still won’t let him be convinced by the weight of huge institutions, medical research, and none other than “Science.”
Even though the video propagates itself as an unbiased research tool — which I agree with and has some plausible evidence — it almost seems like Lesbian, Gay BiSexual, Transgender propaganda; it could have been done better.
Do you think LGBT lifestyle is a choice or a biological fact of nature?
How do feel about the characterization of “Christian?”
