Knocking over Straw Man – NUS Scientists make unremarkable arguments

Dr Wong Peiyuan’s letter, co-signed by 13 other Academic scientists from NUS and Yale-NUS, is a most unremarkable one. Allow me to quote their letter in full but by breaking their arguments down into paragraphs: AS ACADEMIC scientists working in the life sciences, we are alarmed by the claims in the controversial Focus on the Family relationship … Continue reading

Homosexuals and their rights

Homosexuality is a subject that not many people know about. Not many people can claim that they have researched into it; understand the science behind it; have befriended and helped someone with it; or have understood the feelings and the struggles behind it. Homosexuals are indeed one of the most misunderstood individuals and they need the love and support of the society in holistic manners.

Unfortunately, most people have mistaken helping homosexuals to mean legitimizing gay rights. Yet gay rights, as the world understands it today, have been misconstrued. The rights of gays is to be supported and helped in our society. Most gays struggle with identity issues and emotional difficulties. They should be supported in wholesome manners and the law should protect them from unfair abuse. However, the rights of gays is not to push homosexuality into equality with heterosexuality. This is an over-reaction, illegitimate and it does not solve the problem.

Our over-reaction stems from our lack of knowledge in understanding homosexuality and homosexuals. The loudest voice by gay activists, unfortunately, do not quite carry the right intentions to educate, when they push for rights. This is the reason why it is important to start this blog to educate the mass public on scientific facts, statistics, insight and information regarding homosexuality.

Studies thus far find between 8% and 21% of homosexually parented children ultimately identify as non-heterosexual. Children of homosexuals have a 4 to 10 times greater likelihood of developing a non-heterosexual preference than other children.

Science is the critical missing piece in our understanding of homosexuality

Quite frankly, most of our understanding of homosexuality has been shaped by public opinion, mass media and the global gay rights bandwagon, which even the commercial world, journalists and politicians have jumped into. Theillogical worldwide phenomenon is that people are believing in gay rights not by the basis of science, but because it is becoming a popular stand, or because they have been misled. Yet there is little basis for proof that gays are born that way, and much worrying trends of the adverse effects of homosexuality on societies.

The only way to move this sensitive debate forward, is to do it factually and objectively

We need to introduce scientific literacy in the topic of homosexuality. It is important that as a society, we sort this out neatly and wisely. Otherwise, the rights of other parts of the society e.g. our children, can be compromised, when the rights of any minority groups is overly and unfairly pushed.

Our society and our children will suffer from our questionable decisions

In the end, it will be our children, our families, our marriages, our eligible adults, our well-being, our quality of life, our health, our economy - the whole society - who will suffer, because of unscientific and unproven choices, made by our generation.
