Sexual orientation is distinct from other components of sex and gender, including biological sex (the anatomical, physiological, and genetic characteristics associated with being male or female), gender identity (the psychological sense of being male or female), and social gender role (the cultural norms that define feminine and masculine behavior).
So that was a weak attempt at defining anything! What then makes sexual orientation “distinct” from other components of sex and gender, including but not limited to the anatomical, physiological, and genetic characteristics of being male or female, and let’s not forget gender identity the raw components of having as Juno would say, “our junk” and let’s not leave out anything including social gender cultural norms that define masculinity or feminine behavior.
Stating the definition in those terms is really saying that sexual orientation doesn’t really exist; insofar as every characteristic of sex, gender, biology, genetics, being male or female and having the sense of knowing one is either male or female including the social realm, we believe that every Supreme Court Justice as well as the Congressional officers and the head of the executive branch of government take a look at what the American Psychological Association is shoveling and just how deep you people have sunk us into this hoax.
Sexual orientation is commonly discussed as if it were solely a characteristic of an individual, like biological sex, gender identity, or age. This perspective is incomplete because sexual orientation is defined in terms of relationships with others. Thus, sexual orientation is closely tied to the intimate personal relationships that meet deeply felt needs for love, attachment, and intimacy. In addition to sexual behaviors, these bonds include nonsexual physical affection between partners, shared goals and values, mutual support, and ongoing commitment. Therefore, sexual orientation is not merely a personal characteristic within an individual. Rather, one’s sexual orientation defines the group of people in which one is likely to find the satisfying and fulfilling romantic relationships that are an essential component of personal identity for many people.
And we are to accept this as thorough? Every human being on earth has being accepted desires, belongingness needs so as to ensure themselves that they are human and cared for by someone or something in society. Our self-esteem needs lead us to do extraordinary things both good and bad. And when we finally get a true grip on who we are then according to Abraham Maslow, we should be at the point of self-actualizing.
Sexual orientation is commonly discussed as if it were solely a characteristic of an individual, like biological sex, gender identity, or age. This perspective is incomplete because sexual orientation is defined in terms of relationships with others. And we make no qualms about it folks…this is the catch-all of traps and exoneration. This is the epitome of what has happened to individual responsibility, where now, a person can believe this rhetorical excrement and gain their place in line for protected status, the discriminatory function, and everything else.
What is meant about everything else is the notion that for some reason taxpaying Americans should provide payments for your birth control and other health care needs if those needs lie within the parameters of sexually transmitted diseases. Ostensibly what is happening is that you are acknowledging that something is different about you and therefore the U.S. government owes you something in the way of entitlement. Now you are not only the recipient of protected status but also receiving something as a handout from your government.
According to current scientific and professional understanding, the core attractions that form the basis for adult sexual orientation typically emerge between middle childhood and early adolescence. These patterns of emotional, romantic, and sexual attraction may arise without any prior sexual experience. People can be celibate and still know their sexual orientation–be it lesbian, gay, bisexual, or heterosexual.
I do have a fundamental problem with this alleged theory insofar as the basis for sexual orientation has nothing whatsoever to do with sexual desire, sexual experience, this is something that isn’t even known to the experts, moreover, to the individuals inasmuch as they are far too young as children, t’weens, and adolescence.
Where is the research? Is it not unusual for many acquired traits that present themselves found in middle childhood and early adolescence? Is this also when a person is vulnerable to self-perception and needing the attention of being loved or cared about?
Different lesbian, gay, and bisexual people have very different experiences regarding their sexual orientation. Some people know that they are lesbian, gay, or bisexual for a long time before they actually pursue relationships with other people. Some people engage in sexual activity (with same-sex and/or other-sex partners) before assigning a clear label to their sexual orientation. Prejudice and discrimination make it difficult for many people to come to terms with their sexual orientation identities, so claiming a lesbian, gay, or bisexual identity may be a slow process.
This is about assigning that coveted “label” on a different perception, perspective, and the need to be affirmed or belonging to one group of people of another. This orientation is a process ostensibly used much the same as athletics, drama, speech, debate, or other like-minded groups have for attention and belongingness.
And at last the real identity of sexual orientation: There is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay, or lesbian orientation and of course all of that is based on an “orientation” that nobody knows or simply speculates about.
Although much research has examined the possible genetic, hormonal, developmental, social, and cultural influences on sexual orientation, no findings have emerged that permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factor or factors. Many think that nature and nurture both play complex roles.
