In 1999, the American Psychological Association’s code of ethics recognized that it is unethical to consider homosexuality a psychological disorder, a sexual deviancy, or a kind of psychopathology. 2.

We often try to understand sexual orientation, and sometimes, we try to blame it on something or someone. The scientific community has investigated the following question: Is homosexuality innate or is it learned? In other words, are you born with your sexual orientation, or do you become gay or lesbian as a result of your experiences, education or influences? Numerous studies have examined this issue. Many theories have been put forward, but there is no consensus. Theories aside, there is unanimous consensus about two facts: you do not choose your sexual orientation, and you cannot change it.

Talking about homosexuality allows us to debunk the myths, to better understand homosexuality, and to learn to respect differences.

You discover your own sexual orientation. Discovering your sexual orientation is an important moment in your life. Sexual orientation is not a revelation; you gradually become aware of it.

The academy also concluded that it is in the child’s best interest to officially acknowledge both his or her parents. The American Psychiatric Association also expressed the same opinion.
