Right Wing Site: The Pill Causes Homosexuality

Oh, this again.

From American Thinker:

There is a body of evidence – apparently being suppressed by the popular media – that these convenient chemical alterations of women’s bodies is part of the reason for the increase in Western homosexuality. The media now shows homosexuality as a heroic choice. Do they ever admit that it might be a chemically induced aberration?

We were taught in school that our makeup was determined by our DNA; but there is a new science called epigenetics which is indicating that environmental effects may alter how our genes are expressed. While conservatives deny that there is a gay gene, per se, they may have to admit that there may be an epigenetic trigger.

Normal DNA, in a normal fetus, subjected to unstable hormonal fluctuations in a womb, which until recently had been subjected to artificial hormones, may express itself in developing a child given to homosexual tendencies. The child’s DNA may not be unusual, but the chemical bath under which the child developed may have set off triggers which led to an altered orientation or proclivity.

This leads to a further issue. It is the province of moralists and many conservative Christians to dismiss, as hogwash, the claim of homosexuals that they were born that way. The inability to isolate a gay gene is proof that it is not genetic. However, it may be epigenetic. This further introduces more moral issues, particularly to those who would decry homosexuals as willfully degenerate. It may not be a much of a choice as classic moralists might want to think.

    I thought it was brunch?

  • Mike C

    “We don’t believe in the gay gene but here some reasons altering your genes might make you gay”. Okrrrrr. So…it’s genetic or what? These people…….

        They don’t bother to explain lesbians because women’s tits are recognized as the universal turn-on. Giant gorrillas, alien space monsters, other women–all are immediately obsessively aroused by the glimpse of a tit. It’s only natural.

      • perversatile

        Am I paranoid or is the obvious agenda behind birth control pills = gay babies, to turn women into baby making machines with no autonomy over their own bodies, just to crank out baby/units for a ‘straight’ Christo- fascist army ?? Because that is exactly what it stinks like.

        “Patriarchy on steroids” is an interesting comment, given that we’re discussing queerness due to birth control. ,-)

    • zhera

      Notice the words they use?

      chemical bath

      Very carefully chosen words, there.

      • Uncle Mark

        Whatever happened to “Better living through chemistry?” Fuck these hypocritical luddites; they love to shit on science, but love to post their bullshit, unproven theories via their tablets onto the internet. They blame the pill for homosexuality, but don’t believe in global warming or pollution.

        • zhera

          It’s all about keeping alive the narrative that homosexuality is a problem and women are evil bitches who must be controlled by sensible, rational men.

    • JCF
  • LovesIrony

    if a mother breathes air during her pregnancy, this may lead to homosexual offspring.

  • The_Wretched

    “increase in Western homosexuality” Facts not in evidence. See also, “the closet.”

  • Cuberly

    “There is a body of evidence – apparently being suppressed by the popular media – that these convenient chemical alterations of women’s bodies is part of the reason for the increase in Western homosexuality.”

    And they proceed to omit said evidence substituting it with an old paranoid theory and unrelated correlations.

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      Shouldn’t they be protecting Trump from dog-jumping demons?

  • vorpal 😼

    Could we just get a list of things that still don’t cause homosexuality?
    It would be shorter than the list of businesses that still affirm “Traditional Christian Morality.”

    • jmax

      Here’s the list:
      1. Don’t have babies.

  • Rex

    Are these the same right-wing idiots that dismiss climate change as fake science?

  • Todd20036

    My mother took fertility drugs to become pregnant. My sister was the alpha baby, and she’s married, and straight.
    I was hiding behind a kidney, and I’m as queer as can be.
    Meanwhile, did “American Thinker” just tacitly admit that orientation is not a choice?

    • Dagoril

      Sure it is. It’s just the choice of a whore woman!


    • Goodboy

      Yep. That’s an admission if ever there was. Of coarse just like their “beliefs” it will change on a dime to suit their next argument.

  • Dagoril

    Isn’t it cute how how they use the Icky Gays as a weapon to use against Women’s Liberation? “If only women knew their place and stayed barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen, there wouldn’t be any icky gays!”

    • coram nobis

      Which may be why they’re not using the well-known conspiracy theory about flouridation.

    • kaydenpat

      So in their world, Conservative women who never use birth control never have children who are gay? Really?

      • zhera

        Phyllis Schlafly, you hussy!

        • Phyllis Schlafly, you black-hearted bitch!


          Fuck, I hate everything she represents.

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      Their instincts on that point are correct, even if their wannabe “science” is whackadoodle. As Ayaan Hirsi Ali and many, many others have correctly pointed out, very homophobic societies are always also very misogynist, and very misogynist societies are always also very homophobic. The two phenomena are inextricably related.

      • greenmanTN

        Also, in societies where women have very low status pederasty is common, like with the “dancing boys” in Afghanistan and other places in the Middle East.

      • (((GC)))

        Indeed! It’s all about conforming to gawd-given roles and the narrow boxes of what “real men” and “real women” are supposed to be like, which conveniently also upholds gawd-given male privilege and female oppression.

    • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

      Strange how all gay people are a product of heterosexual activity…

    • Uncle Mark

      Conversely, a woman could potentially follow all the non-hormonal/non-chemical “rules” and still have a gay child. Guess who gets the blame for the gay child? It’s not too far from the olden days when sterility was almost always blamed on the woman too

  • Tawreos

    It is not a “heroic choice”. It only looks heroic because of the shitload of hate that ignorant assholes send our way just for being ourselves.

  • barrixines

    Oooh sciency!

    Homophobes are utterly obsessed with having to know why the homos are here. I’ve never given a shit whether it’s nature, nurture or the Trolley Song. I’ve had endless fools trying to engage me in a discussion on this matter. They think if they can keep us justifying our very existence they can wear us out so we don’t start shouting about fripperies like objecting to being beaten up, correctively raped, imprisoned and murdered by the State. I like dick. You’re not entitled to know why.

    • Xuuths

      How dare you mock the holy Trolley Song!!!

  • Rex

    Here’s some science for ya: heterosexual couples have sex and babies. Some of those babies turn to to be gay. So, blame the heterosexuals.

    • kaydenpat

      Simple right?

  • kaydenpat

    “American Thinker”? Good grief. This is no different from the jibber jabber of Alex Jones or a crazy street corner preacher.

  • Rex

    So, maybe Trump’s new grandson will turn out to be gay.

      It’s a shame Trump’s mother didn’t take the (morning after) pill.

      • Xuuths

        Liberace was on television in 1957. Checkmate!

  • Mikey

    Wait, wait wait!
    A pill that temporarily alters a woman’s hormonal output, thus stopping her from getting pregnant… is what makes her… get pregnant.. with a gay baby?

    Doesn’t the cognitive dissonance required to have that make sense hurt anyone else’s brain?

    • Dagoril

      You’re putting more thought into it than they did 😉

    • boatboy_srq

      It’s a twofer for them. Not-so-subtle message to women: stay off the pill (and have lots of babies) or take the risk that (some of) your kids will grow up queer.

          One never knows the real facts.

  • “Might” is not a good enough argument.

  • GayOldLady

    It’s so obvious it should be smacking people in the face that there is no increase in gays and lesbians in the Western world, there’s an increase in the number of people who own it, live it and love it.

  • Halou

    They’ll be changing their minds about abortion soon enough.

  • Bob Black

    They confuse “openly gay” people with “gay people” and assume that there are more now than there used to be. There have always been a lot of gays, they just stayed closeted in the past.

    • Halou

      There will be no homosexual men in Evangelical wonderland (lesbians are fine though because lesbian sex is hot!), just as there are no Christians in Saudi Arabia.

  • fastlanestranger

    So I’m confused. I thought my “lifestyle” was a choice, but now you’re telling me it wasn’t MY choice, but rather my mother’s choice to take a birth control pill? But… What if she never took the pill. Oh! Then it IS still my choice to be gay.
    Hard to keep up!

  • Halou

    I don’t care if this is true or not, but to believe that it is the duty of ‘moralists and many conservative Christians’ to impose their way of life on the nation because of it… That is unacceptable.

    • The_Wretched

      Yes, other peoples’ sexuality isn’t their business. Their sexuality isn’t my business unless it’s a criminal act*.

  • Darrel Cj

    How do you explain homosexuality throughout all of history?? Jesus, crack open a fucking book.

  • Bj Lincoln

    I was gay before I took hormone pills for a problem. They didn’t help so I stopped taking them. Years later I was pumped full of male hormones to treat an different problem. Frankly, I kind of liked how they made me feel. My voice got lower but I was getting hair on my face. They didn’t fix the problem so I stopped. The whole time I was and am still a big old lesbian!
    ps It took years for the last hair to stop growing on my face but my voice never went all the way back. It was always low so I don’t care. Funny how strangers think I’m a guy on the phone.

    • GayOldLady

      I was attracted to other girls by the time I was 6 years old. The only medicines I’d taken at that time were Cheracol/Codeine for cough and Paregoric/Opium for upset stomachs. It’s great that I’m a Lesbian, I could have been a drug addict with the medicines they gave children when I was growing up.

  • Scoot

    So… homosexuality is a choice that the Bible, written thousands of years ago, says is wrong. But it’s caused by a 20th century pill. I feel like this has something to do with Obama’s time machine, but like most time-travel plots, it doesn’t quite line up.

    Also, my mom never took the pill. Her brothers’ wives never took the pill, I’m sure. Yet they all each have a gay son. In fact, there are a lot of “lifelong bachelors” in the family tree on my mom’s side, going way back.

    I guess I’m expecting too much for any of this to make sense.

  • Beagle

    The moral of this story: The “American” “Thinker” is neither.

  • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

    If you’re on the pill, you’re not likely to get pregnant. I mean, that’s the whole point of the pill! Somehow, probably God’s Will, women on the pill will give birth to gay babies or something.

    It’s like these people don’t even share the same reality as the rest of us…

  • The_Wretched

    Birth order impacts (having more older biological brothers) suggest that limiting family size would reduce the rate of gay men…

    • So ’tis said; but I was my mother’s first-born (in 1948, a long time pre-Pill) and was followed by two daughters and then by two sons, both straight.

  • edrex

    my mamma never used the pill. just like all the mammas of homos throughout history before her.

    • Reality.Bites

      Most of us here are like you. Our mothers couldn’t have used the pill if they’d wanted to. From wiki:

      Contraceptives were not available to married women in all states until Griswold v. Connecticut in 1965 and were not available to unmarried women in all states until Eisenstadt v. Baird in 1972

      I guess they’ll need to update that article someday when contraceptives are available to Bristol Palin.

  • Karl Dubhe

    /me backs away slowly…

  • JCF

    See, lesbians don’t use the Pill because they already did? What TF ever..


  • kelven

    As always, these theories of choice and no choice basically start with the premise there is something undesirable about being gay, and that finding out what is “wrong” can lead to correcting a flaw. However, if you take that out of the equation it basically becomes a question of whether or not same sex attraction is desirable and healthy for civilization as a whole. I would argue it is easy enough to support the idea that a healthy society would encourage same sex attraction for a number of reasons. The only real arguments against it are entirely based in religious mythologies that have no bearing in honestly uplifting our species spirituality.

    • zhera

      Instead of Born This Way, maybe people should use Happy This Way!

    Hmmm. I wonder what would happen if they legit discovered boner pills caused homosexuality?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • Chris Baker

    There are so many more gays now than there have been in the past? Could it be that during the first time in history that it has been fairly safe to come out as gay that more people are comfortable coming out as gay instead of hiding in the closet— hiding in fear of losing their jobs, being put in jail, being killed?

  • Nic Peterson

    They know that their followers are almost as smart as tapeworms and prove it every day.

  • Pip
  • Acronym Jim

    I notice how they also circle around to the old theory that gay people don’t choose to be gay, they are sick “aberrations” (which presumably leads to the suggestion that we must be “treated” or institutionalized for our own good).

    Wow, who knew there was so much birth control pills dispensed in ancient Rome and Greece.
    They even had a bunch of ancient gay gods back then who must have taken those pesky birth control pills according to the American Thinker‘s logic.

  • stuckinthewoods

    It all makes sense now. Although my Catholic mother never used contraception herself, as the pill became more common was exactly when I felt an increase in homosexuality. It works just like my marriage changing straights people’s, there are invisible rays or something.

    They really need to get their narrative straight. Think on it some more.

  • Reality.Bites

    Of course if this were true, unaccepting Catholic parents of gay people have lost whatever moral high ground they claimed as observant Catholics.

  • TexasBoy

    Soooo, are they saying there were no gay people before the availability of the Birth Control Pill in 1960? Hmmm. I was born before then.

    • Xuuths

      But were you gay before then?

  • DaveMiller135

    If I took some now could I get gayer? I missed out on the neatness gene, and on the fashion sense gene. I never get to join in any Gaydeer games.


    “The inability to isolate a gay gene is proof that it is not genetic.”
    Dude. Advise your children to pay attention in High School Biology. It’s probably too late for you, if you believe that the function of the entire Human Genome has been discovered. Also, there’s this thing called Global Warming. That’s gonna be important too.

    This has only been debunked a thousand times.

  • Puckfair52

    Born in 52 and all the activists who Started the Stonewall revolution are pre pill ….babies.
    I think my mother said we were gay due to the Bomb HARSHYE

  • Tempus Fuggit

    evidence apparently being suppressed by the popular media

    Is it being suppressed…? Or did the dog eat it…? Only American Thinker™ knows for sure.

    The media now shows homosexuality as a heroic choice

    Oh? I haven’t noticed that. Are you sure? Think very carefully, because that doesn’t sound right.

  • Paul Weidig

    What’s conveniently left unsaid is that a heterosexual gene has never been discovered either.

  • Nah, not an heroic “choice”. It’s an heroic EXISTENCE!

    • Gianni

      That’s more like it. Thanks.

    • Girlgoon

      Gay people don’t have an existence according to the right wing we have a “lifestyle”.

  • Paul

    Regardless of whether this is true, in the era of climate change, shouldn’t we be THANKFUL for The Pill and a lot of homos?

    • Girlgoon

      The flatulence coming out of the right wing assholes suggest that the environment and population are not a problem because God will take care of it

  • Tom

    If I take the pill now – like mum apparently did before – will I become a power bottom?

  • GanymedeRenard

    And by “homosexuals” they’re also including lesbians, I presume. Or is it just the thought of male homosexuality that will keep them awake all night?

  • CPT_Doom

    This makes total sense. My mother went on the pill after I was born because my birth nearly killed her. And my sister had two straight sons while using the pill. Wait….

  • fuzzybits

    Didn’t choose it,it chose me assholes!

  • ColdCountry

    Wait, we’re back to it being a choice? I can’t keep up….

  • lenvus

    Oh, where to begin? … Nothing like these fuckers to not understand (or falsely describe) the concept of “genetic expression” and epigenetic theory. Nothing like taking established evolutionary theories, appropriating them *very* poorly and inappropriately for one’s own moral platitudes, and refusing to admit one’s idiocy in the process.

  • Listen, I wasn’t “caused” to be gay. Maybe these people were altered in a way to “cause” them to be straight. Seems like everyone presumes straight is the “default setting” for all of humanity.

  • Girlgoon

    So let me get this straight the mechanism of action is not to stop ovulation it’s to make a woman gay so she won’t have sex with a man

  • PBGVNinja

    Straight people make homosexuals. When they fuck and an embryo is formed, there will be a certain percentage who turn out gay. Gay folks don’t make children, they adopt the ones straight people cast aside. The only way not to have gay children is for hets not to reproduce – and they make way to many children as it is. Many straight couples shouldn’t be having children at all, since they are so lousy at raising them. Deal with it.

    This clearly explains the high incidence of homosexuality among penguins.

  • Franciscan

    The ignorant slut who wrote this piece of trash:

    “Mike Konrad is the pen name of an American who wishes he had availed himself
    more fully of the opportunity to learn Spanish in high school, lo those
    many decades ago. He writes on the Arabs of South America at http://latinarabia.com. He also just started a website about small computers at http://minireplacement.com.”

    One would just like to know: Other than wishing he had learned more Spanish, did he even finish high school?

    “American Thinker” is to thinking as Fox “News” is to news? It’s just faux squared.

  • Friday’s_cat

    Just enough science jargon to impress the Ignoratti. Writers and readers of the American Thinker fear homosexuality because they might succumb to the Siren Song.

    • Tiger Quinn

      My god, your every statement is just some gross weird thing.

  • Kenneth Hamlett

    The eagerness of the individuals who hate the LGBT community to display their ignorance and bigotry for all to see is astonishing. But, it is also sad that anyone could be so possessed with hatred for someone for being born with a different sexual orientation defies reason, logic and any sense of fairness — yet they seem proud of their irrational hatred. Even if one made the absurd leap to accept the premise of the story, it would still leave them looking ridiculous and despicable — Your mother took birth control pills and that caused you to be a homosexual, so I hate you for something your mother did. No one ever said there was a connection between bigotry and intelligence, and I am certain no one ever will.
