    I personally class sexual preference as being some early childhood development thing that, like a favorite color or something, if it doesn't qualify as mental illness per se, also doesn't qualify as an inherent genetic trait.

    In fact, the world is a pretty unfair and demeaning place for people whose favorite color is red. Look at how red is stigmatized, we put it on warning signs, on dangerous objects.

    So why hasn't this little observation or theory getting any traction. Especially If it's something that can be averted at a very young age?

    First of all... are we having an argument of some kind? I am just talkin'

    Second of all... I am just talkin', I don't know, I just surmise.

    Third of all, I doubt even if I was completely correct that there would be any way to avert it. We have no idea what developmental stimuli prompt what result. Not to movie on you, but think about it in terms of the movie "Inception" -- how hard it would be to trace the genesis of any idea one came up with. Some people might love red because a nice person gave then a red balloon. Or the most horrible person ever wore a blue shirt and they like red because it isn't blue. We don't know, we probably can never know. We just know it is basically an idiopathic psychological characteristic.

    Because there's not really anything to back it up aside from the fact that there doesn't seem to be an identifiable single-gene genetic trigger?

    Oh wait ! So you mean we are not on the road to genetic perfection like I was told ?? !!

    This is shocking, indeed, my Friend.

    I may need a medicinal Maker's Mark over that.

    I think it says something about the state of the court that the ruling was entirely along political lines. Regardless of the ruling America is not being served by a politicized court. Something between a 1/5 and 1/4 of the decisions have been 5-4 rulings. And something like 70% of those are along ideological lines. I have a hard time understanding how such bright men and women go to bed with their conscience at night bringing in their politics.... Both sides.
