In the first study, half the participants saw an advertisement with a male-female couple. Let me dramatize:. For example, exclusively opposite-gender attracted women show physical sexual arousal to both female and male stimuli. I identify as a butch lesbian, but I remember when I was in school, I was attracted to both boys and girls. Whether a person can or cannot change their sexual orientation is entirely irrelevant; reality is what it is and is not determined by a popular vote, but is instead elucidated by empirical study via appropriate scientific methods, and the real situation is entirely unaffected by whether religionists fervently wish sexual orientation to be a choice so as to legitimize their persecution of it, or whether the gay person wishes it to be biologically fixed so he can avoid same. Difficult discussion.
On the other hand, the gay man has no right to assert authority over the believer regarding his personal beliefs either, just as the believer has no right to demand a say in the gay man's believes or responses to the beliefs of others.
