A Must See TEDxTalk Addresses Why We Are Born Gay. 'Homosexuality: It's About Survival - Not Sex.'

Why are we gay? Is it nature, nurture, genetics, rearing, how your daddy treated you or wasn't there? There are so many different beliefs. 

Enter Dr. James O'Keefe MD.  You need to listen to his thoughts on why we are gay. 

While listening to and watching this Tedx Talk, my head nodded, I questioned a couple of things, agreed with so much, and actually teared up a little.




This passionate talk from Dr. James O'Keefe MD gives us a deeply personal and fascinating insight into why homosexuality is indeed a necessary and extraordinarily useful cog in nature's wheel of perfection.

The video hit home, with me being the 4th born, third son, and a child born after a very tough pregnancy. 

How did you relate to the video.

Do you agree with some or all of the things said by Dr James O'Keefe?

"It's in our diversity where we find our collective strength."
