75. I was kidding about the 'y' chromosome, and I understood your point.
I believe, however, that it is ultimately a spiritual issue (as, indeed, adult heterosexual copulation is), not a psychological, still less a physiological one, even if a person were conditioned by pedophile parents. With the exception of essential psychopaths, we are all made to the same basic spiritual specifications re our sexuality, and capable of any number and range of perversions, though I think in the case of the more outlandish ones, the individual concerned would be likely to be in the thrall of a devil/fallen angel/demon. I doubt if cars and pavenments, for example, would give out the right pheromones for any man... In the end, it comes down to a man's sense of moral beauty and ugliness.

It seems to me that, as infants, to the extent that they were sexual at all, homosexuals would have been heterosexual. Although the matter of men born with an extra x-chromome raises what seems to me imponderable questions. I mean, in 1961, when I was working as hospital porter, there was an Austrian lad called Peter there who told me he was a hermaphrodite, and had travelled all over the world, including Russia, to try and obtain treatment with what he called, testosterone (a word unknown to most of us at that time, and presumably scarce), to remedy a fault in his endocrine system. He seemed masculine and evidently saw himself as masculine. A few years later, while on leave and visiting Westminster Cathedral, I chanced to meet a lad who worked in the path lab, who told me that Peter had committed suicide one Christmas Eve. On the other hand, there are other similarly-afflicted men, who really look and act in very feminine ways from the earliest age.

It's quite an oppressive subject, isn't it, So I'm going to give it a rest for a while, now, though you may feel duty-bound to respond to posts.
