LGBT issues

As chance would have been a patient turned friend recently started fighting with me for LGBT rights and within two days supreme court came out with it's ruling.I am no way ashamed to say that I am not a LGBT supporter,though I am against the discrimination they face because of their choices.
Now few thought provoking questions ( I know I am touching a sensitive issue)
IS it crime?My answer is ,I don't know but it is different from the normal,
Should it be encouraged? Again I don't know.If tomorrow my son turns out to be a gayI would be ashamed.I will feel unwell and no amount of justification will make me feel good that his chemicals are making him do it.Then what is the difference between human being and animals?
Tomorrow then bestiality,pedophilia and incest would be legalised as the involved people can always blame it on their chemicals.
To say bestiality is wrong as the animal can't give consent.What if it is found the animal is enjoying the act.Will it be legalised?
Fraser law gives alot of freedom to juveniles to indulge is sex,ask for OCPs,right of confidentiality etc.So tomorrow if we find Pedophiles are also guided by their hormones and aren't criminals,will it be legalised.
May be it will happen in future.
Few facts

Suicide and suicide risk in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender populations: review and recommendations.


American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, New York, New York 10005, USA.


Despite strong indications of elevated risk of suicidal behavior in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, limited attention has been given to research, interventions or suicide prevention programs targeting these populations. This article is a culmination of a three-year effort by an expert panel to address the need for better understanding of suicidal behavior and suicide risk in sexual minority populations, and stimulate the development of needed prevention strategies, interventions and policy changes. This article summarizes existing research findings, and makes recommendations for addressing knowledge gaps and applying current knowledge to relevant areas of suicide prevention practice

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender health issues, disparities, and information resources.


Texas A&M University Medical Sciences Library, College Station, USA.


Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons, while widely diverse in many ways, share health disparities related to the stigma and discrimination they experience, including disproportionate rates of psychiatric disorders, substance abuse, and suicide. Lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and the transgender communities have additional health concerns and disparities unique to each population. This paper highlights the national recognition of these health issues and disparities and presents web-based information resources about them and their mitigation

American Academy of Pediatrics stated in Pediatrics in 2004:
Sexual orientation probably is not determined by any one factor but by a combination of genetic, hormonal, and environmental influences. In recent decades, biologically based theories have been favored by experts. [...] Although there continues to be controversy and uncertainty as to the genesis of the variety of human sexual orientations, there is no scientific evidence that abnormal parenting, sexual abuse, or other adverse life events influence sexual orientation. Current knowledge suggests that sexual orientation is usually established during early childhood.[

Now this is my belief.If you feel differently then please feel free to express.
