    Say for instance a new born baby boy has to gay

    fathers. He grows up. Do you think he'll have interest in boys because his parents are gay or will that not have an effect on him. I feel in some cases a child can be brought up gay if that makes sense or can be persuaded to be gay. I don't think every child who is (LGB) are...
