THESE ARE STUDIES I CITED IN THE LECTURE
1) According to Levay, “...it is more likely that brain anatomy influences orientation.” (LeVay, 1991 as cited in Myers, 2007, p. 491)
2) Myers (2005) said, Homosexuals can’t “change through psychotherapy, willpower, or prayer” (as cited in Myers, 2007, p. 489)
3) Robert Spitzer (2003) said that some have showed sustained change (at least 5 years) using conversion or reparative therapy. --no other citation needed
4) Robert Spitzer (2003) interviewed “200 Subjects who Claim to Have Changed their Sexual Orientation from Homosexual to Heterosexual.” - no other citation needed
5) Myers and others are quick to point out that Spitzer said in 2001 “the vast majority of gay people would be unable to alter by much a firmly established homosexual orientation.” (as cited in Myers and Scanzoni, 2005)

Using the studies in the text - summarize major studies

Then, argue that HOMOSEXUALITY is or is not BIOLOGICAL. Use at least three different studies to support your point of view. Naming a study or criticizing a study is one way to provide evidence that will support your point of view.

Students will be graded on the evidence they provide in APA style.

Other items up for discussion

1) Do you think your own biases influence your point of view on this controversial topic?

2) In 1973, homosexuality was removed from the DSM as a disorder. How do cultural factors enter such decisions?
3) Do you think sexual orientation is a choice and what are the positive and negative ramifications of saying people are born gay, lesbian, or bisexual?
