You're Having a Lesbian: VIDEO


Any child can be born gay.


This video was commissioned by Shelley Argent, Australian National Spokesperson for PFLG. It's part of a new campaign down under:

The campaign's theme is that: "Any child can be born gay. So marriage equality is every family's issue."

Spokeswoman for PFLG Shelley Argent told News Limited the campaign was designed to build support for gay marriage on the grounds that gay children were "born that way".

"Being a lesbian or gay is not a choice," she said. "It's just the way you are."

  1. A terrific and powerful ad. Would like to see it here in the States. Well done!

  2. Does anyone else find this unintentionally hilarious? I'm sorry! I couldn't help but start snickering.

  4. What if being gay were a choice? Would it be such a bad choice to make? Black people and Asian people didn't choose their skin colors, but do we resolve not to discriminate against them because they can't help being the non-white colors they are?

  5. @David Groff: Obviously two adults choosing to engage in sex together isn't bad, but most will never see it that way. People are still policing straight women on their sexuality. If POC could choose to be white, you'd better believe that all of them living in the west would have been forced to do so or murdered ages ago. When you're dealing with bigots, *choosing* to deviate from what they consider the norm is completely unacceptable.

  6. Already exploiting kids to forward the Agenda, even the pre-born!

  7. Unless you can prove there's a gay gene, there is no such thing as being 'born this way'.

  8. Wonderful, absolutely wonderful. A little shocking at first but right on the mark. So many children would have wonderful lives if their parents were told their sexual orientation at birth.

  9. @Adam: yes, and since we haven't located the heterosexual gene, we certainly wouldn't dream of saying heterosexuals were born that way, either.

  10. @ Adam, Is there a gene for being left handed? Is there a gene for being stupid?

  11. Can Adam think or learn? I'll bet he's got a Bible brain block.

  12. Poor PFLAG down under. That's the dumbest short video I've seen in a long while. It just is.

  13. @Adam: "Unless you can prove there's a gay gene, there is no such thing as being 'born this way'."

    Hmm - you cannot prove there is a single gene that determines height then we are to take it you think being short is a 'lifestyle choice'?

  14. WHAT A LOAD OF RUBBISH! Gays are not born that way! Unless they are freak mutations. Are paedophiles born that way too? HA! It is merely a preference born of the perverted World we live in. It is nothing more than a preffered fetish. Be pro gay all you want. I will NEVER accept you.

  15. You cannot compare being gay to being black or white, tall or short. Those things are natural phenomena. Being gay is an UNNATURAL choice!

    Posted by: B STATS | Jun 21, 2013 2:58:51 AM

  16. Being that nature follows a survival of the species law. If a gay gene actually existed (ridiculous) then evolution would have identified it as detrimental and eradicated it long ago. Therefore, the sodomites choose to be that way.

  17. My, my, the trolls are out in force today. Homosexuality exists in over 600 species but homophobia in only one. Which is unnatural?

  18. The latest science indicates that there are both genetic and epigenetic factors in play when it comes to sexual orientation. More to the point, it's not under anyone's control, nor is it negative.

  19. Absolutely beautiful advertisement.
