Except there is an objective reality that LGBT people don't choose their sexuality.

That is not "an objective reality", it's an opinion.


The accusation of "bigotry" is a common and entirely predictable, tiresome move for those without the academic goods. Why not read the actual research? Nope, sorry/not sorry, the prolix pop culture wishful thinking that homosexuality is innate is fiction https://www.thenewatlantis.com/docLib/20160819_TNA50Sexualit...

"The New Atlantis" is not a peer review publication. It's, by its own description, a "small journals of ideas". Very far from "actual research".

I didn't say the New Atlantis was a peer-reviewed publication, and I know the difference. But did you read it? The NA is a summary of the peer reviewed publications and journals such as The Annals of Statistics, Biometrics, American Journal of Political Science, New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Statistical Association, and American Journal of Public Health.

So, nope, it simply won't do to sniff "not peer reviewed!" in response to this and think it's some kind of slam dunk that supports your biases regarding human sexuality.
