Ciência diz que não existem pessoas heterossexuais. Lifesitenews. TORONTO, June 1, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne Liberals have passed what critics describe as “totalitarian” Bill 89 by a vote of 63 to 23 on the last day before Queen’s Park adjourns for the summer. Pro-family advocates warn Bill 89 gives the state more power to seize children from families that oppose the LGBTQI and gender ideology agenda, and allows government agencies to effectively ban couples who disagree with that agenda from fostering or adopting children. Bill 89, or the Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017, repeals and replaces the former Child and Family Services Act that governs child protection services, and adoption and foster care services.

It adds “gender identity” and “gender expression” as factors to be considered “in the best interests of the child.” “Make no mistake, Bill 89 is a grave threat to Christians and all people of faith who have children, or who hope to grow their family through adoption.” Swedish twin study: Q & A with J. Michael Bailey. Humans inherited murder through evolution. A new study has looked back along our evolutionary tree, and shown that humans evolved the tendency to kill each other from our primate ancestors - violence didn't just arise from human nature, as has been suggested in the past.

In fact, at the time of our species' origin, humans were killing each other six times more often than the average mammal today - which, it turns out, isn't anywhere near as bad as some of the species out there. In the latest study, a team of researchers from the Estación Experimental de Zonas Áridas and University of Granada in Spain, compiled information on more than 4 million deaths across 1,024 mammal species. They used that data to calculate how many of those deaths were the result of violence from a member of the same species, and then figured out which mammals are the most murderous.

Nope, the number one most murderous mammal species was actually... meerkats. You can see the full top-30 list below: Not all mammals are violent, however. See guys? How Gay Activists Will Respond to a Major Scientific Report That Refutes Their Talking Points. The internet has been abuzz with headlines declaring, “Almost Everything the Media Tell You About Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Is Wrong,” and “Johns Hopkins Shrinks Warn Against Kids Going Transgender.” As reported by Ryan T. Anderson on Monday, “A major new report, published today in the journal The New Atlantis, challenges the leading narratives that the media has pushed regarding sexual orientation and gender identity.”

How significant was this report? “Co-authored by two of the nation’s leading scholars on mental health and sexuality, the 143-page report discusses over 200 peer-reviewed studies in the biological, psychological, and social sciences, painstakingly documenting what scientific research shows and does not show about sexuality and gender.” What were the conclusions of this study? How will gay activists respond? When it comes to the authors of this important new study, they are hardly rightwing, fundamentalist, conservatives. One of the authors, Dr. Dr. As for Dr. When Homosexuality Came Out (of the DSM) 41 years ago this month, homosexuality ceased to be a mental illness.

Amid growing opposition from gay activists, and dissent within its own ranks, the American Psychiatric Association was begrudgingly forced to expunge homosexuality from the DSM-II. Paradigmatic of the social nature of psychiatric diagnosis, the purging of homosexuality from the psychiatric nomenclature highlights the instability of the psychiatric sign: once signifying disease and perversion, homosexuality came to be recognized by the establishment as a normal variant of human sexuality. The slow demise of homosexuality as disease Although the removal of homosexuality from the DSM is often heralded as a radical and rapid sea-change in how sexual orientation was viewed, the reality is more sobering.

Homosexuality was not actually removed from the diagnostic nomenclature of the revised DSM-II. Instead, it was shifted into parentheses of the new diagnosis of sexual orientation disturbance. Further Reading. Homosexuality may be caused by chemical modifications to DNA. “Baby, I was born this way,” Lady Gaga sang in a 2011 hit that quickly became a gay anthem. Indeed, over the past 2 decades, researchers have turned up considerable evidence that homosexuality isn't a lifestyle choice, but is rooted in a person's biology and at least in part determined by genetics. Yet actual “gay genes” have been elusive. A new study of male twins, scheduled for presentation at the annual meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) in Baltimore, Maryland, today, could help explain that paradox.

It finds that epigenetic effects, chemical modifications of the human genome that alter gene activity without changing the DNA sequence, may have a major influence on sexual orientation. The new work, from Eric Vilain's lab at the University of California (UC), Los Angeles, is “exciting” and “long overdue,” says William Rice, an evolutionary geneticist at UC Santa Barbara, who proposed in 2012 that epigenetics plays a role in sexual orientation. Sex and Affection in Heterosexual and Homosexual Couples. Electronic Journal of Human Sexuality, Volume 9, April 17, 2006 Felicia De la Garza-Mercer, M.A. Andrew Christensen, Ph.D. Brian Doss, Ph.D. Sexuality and sexual satisfaction are fundamental aspects of marriages and close relationships and are related to overall couple happiness and durability.

Likewise, research on sexuality in close relationships has too often focused on Caucasian, middle-class American samples and cannot provide a coherent understanding of sexuality within a variety of close relationships. Additionally, most studies of sexual satisfaction in close relationships are primarily limited to reports of coital frequency, which are erroneously employed as sole indicators of overall sexual and marital health.

Lastly, it is essential that current frameworks of marital and close relationship sexuality expand to incorporate biological theoretical models of sex. Evolutionary and Sexual Strategies Theory Sexual Activity Affection and Intimacy Sexual Jealousy and Infidelity. Are gays ‘born that way’? Most Americans now say yes, but science says no. PRINCETON, NJ, May 20, 2015 ( -- For the first time, a majority of Americans say that homosexuals are "born that way. " According to the latest Gallup poll, 51 percent of Americans say that people are born gay or lesbian, while only 30 percent say outside factors such as upbringing and environment determine sexual orientation.

However, science would not bear that out. No fewer than eight major studies from around the world have found homosexuality is not a genetic condition. Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council says that these numerous, rigorous studies of identical twins have now made it impossible to argue that there is a "gay gene. " If homosexuality were inborn and predetermined, then when one identical twin is homosexual, the other should be, as well. Yet one study from Yale and Columbia Universities found homosexuality common to only 6.7 percent of male identical twins and 5.3 percent of female identical twins. “I was not born this way,” she wrote.

President Obama's Misguided War on 'Conversion Therapy' - Michael Brown. With all the major, life critical issues taking place in America and around the globe, it is absolutely mind-boggling that President Obama has decided to declare war on so-called “conversion therapy,” joining in the battle to outlaw professional counseling for minors struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction or gender identity confusion.

This is political correctness run amuck, and the president, with all his power and influence, is intruding himself where he most certainly does not belong, standing in the way of personal autonomy and individual choice, seeking to deprive young people of the very thing that might just save them from many years of suffering and pain. By what authority does he seek to do this? On April 8th, the New York Times reported, “Obama Calls for End to ‘Conversion’ Therapies for Gay and Transgender Youth,” pointing to an official White House statement posted by Valerie Jarrett which begins with this quote from the president: Identical Twin Studies Prove Homosexuality is Not Genetic | Blog.

By Mark Ellis - Eight major studies of identical twins in Australia, the U.S., and Scandinavia during the last two decades all arrive at the same conclusion: gays were not born that way. “At best genetics is a minor factor,” says Dr. Neil Whitehead, PhD. Whitehead worked for the New Zealand government as a scientific researcher for 24 years, then spent four years working for the United Nations and International Atomic Energy Agency. Most recently, he serves as a consultant to Japanese universities about the effects of radiation exposure. His PhD is in biochemistry and statistics. Identical twins have the same genes or DNA. “Because they have identical DNA, it ought to be 100%,” Dr. Because identical twins are always genetically identical, homosexuality cannot be genetically dictated.

The predominant things that create homosexuality in one identical twin and not in the other have to be post-birth factors. Dr. “Twin registers are the foundation of modern twin studies.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists considers that sexual orientation is determined by a combination of biological and postnatal environmental factors.

There is no evidence to go beyond this and impute any kind of choice into the origins of sexual orientation.The College wishes to clarify that homosexuality is not a psychiatric disorder. In 1973 the American Psychiatric Association (APA) concluded there was no scientific evidence that homosexuality was a disorder and removed it from its diagnostic glossary of mental disorders. When the RCP write, This is an interesting line (emphasis added). What is “evidence that they are potentially harmful“? Update. PS02_2014.pdf. Sexes: Sick Again? Psychiatrists vote on gays In a much debated vote by its membership four years ago, the American Psychiatric Association decided that homosexuality should not be defined as a disorder. For many psychiatrists, that poll has hardly disposed of the issue—as a new survey by Medical Aspects of Human Sexuality shows. The journal sent questionnaires to 10,000 members of the A.P.A., and compiled the first 2,500 responses.

Of those answering, 69% said they believed "homosexuality is usually a pathological adaptation, as opposed to a normal variation," 18% disagreed and 13% were uncertain. Similarly, sizable majorities said that homosexuals are generally less happy than...
