Final bell tolls for the “Born That Way” theory after new Gallup poll

A recent Gallup poll, published in January 2017, in which the number of people in 2016 identifying as LGBT was compared to previous years, has shown a remarkable and unaccountable RISE for the number of people who said in a telephone interview that they identify as LGBT. Stark differences in the increase were found depending on the generation, date of birth, racial or ethnic background, level of education and social class level. The number of people identifying as gay is not stable in any way, and is changing in a very short span of time, according to Gallup. The conclusion must be that a genetic theory of “being born that way” is not consistent with these Gallup poll outcomes.

Via Malta, the EU has been conquered overnight

malta-map2According to a government statement, Malta has become the first European country to ban what they call “gay conversion therapy”, imposing fines of not less than €2000 pounds and up to €10,000 ($10,750) and a jail term of at least a month and up to one year for health workers who offend the new law. On December 5th 2016 the parliament approved a law that effectively outlaws any attempts to “change, repress and, or eliminate a person’s sexual orientation, gender identity and, or gender expression”. The law further stipulates that “no sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression constitutes a disorder, disease or shortcoming of any sort.” It also lowers to 16 the age at which minors can request a gender change without their parents’ approval.

In the EU, the smallest member state Malta (400.000 inhabitants), which is barely conspicuous on any map, has a full veto right on all issues in the EU which are not in accordance with Maltese law. This initiative comes from outside the EU, from American gay psychologists united in ILGA. The 28 member states of the EU have been conquered overnight.

People are not born that way

In an well-documented essay, California psychologist Laura Haynes, PhD, demonstrates how the American Psychological Association finally agrees that the “born-that-way” ideology and the “you-cannot-change” ideology are NOT true. Here is the essay that she published on the 27th of September 2016. She debunks the myths that caused so many people in the past to avoid seeking psychotherapeutic help for their unwanted same-sex attractions, myths that have deterred them from exploring their full capacity of sexual fluidity.

New scientific evidence Mayer and McHugh proves you were not ‘born that way’

couple13In August 2016 a groundbreaking study was published in the New Atlantis journal entitled “Sexuality and Gender: Findings from the biological, psychological and social sciences.” by two researchers Dr. Lawrence Mayer and Dr. Paul McHugh. This study draws from sixty years of research.

The major findings include:

1. “The idea that individuals are “born that way” – that sexual orientation is a biologically fixed, innate human trait is not supported by scientific evidence.”

2. “The idea that an individual could be “a man trapped in a woman’s body or a woman trapped in a man’s body” – in other words, the notion that a gender identity that is independent from or in conflict with biological sex, cannot be supported by scientific evidence.” Continue reading New scientific evidence Mayer and McHugh proves you were not ‘born that way’

Part 11, SPLC against JONAH: Myths, deceptions and Leelah’s Law

One of them, the Southern Poverty Law Center, spreads disinformation. In doing so, dissidents are deliberately framed.

Part 7, SPLC against JONAH: debunking the allegations

potok2In a report published in May 2016 Southern Poverty Law Center attorney Martin Potok tries to give an account of the JONAH trial, using the opportunity to justify the SPLC cause in society. He can do so only by twisting and turning the information, changing it into disinformation. In this article we will look closely at what the SPLC has to say on their first page, the page which sets the scene for more disinformation in the rest of the report. At the end of this article, we have a proposal to end the ban on therapy nonsense in congress. Continue reading Part 7, SPLC against JONAH: debunking the allegations
