Oh, and just for funsies, here are a few tidbits I have found for you!
"Research shows that between thirty and fifty percent of individuals with alcohol dependence also suffer from major depression, during one or more of the stages of the disease."
"Both depression and alcoholism have a genetic component that increases an individualís vulnerability. Moreover, each can aggravate the onset of the other condition."
"Heredity plays an important role in the onset of alcoholism and depression. Family history increases the propensity to develop either or both disorders."
So, it's not necessarily that someone CHOOSES to be an alcoholic... there is actually a REASON! to cause it.
There are studies that show that homosexual and heterosexual people actually react differently to pheromones. Meaning a homosexual man is more attracted to male pheromones rather than female ones. And we all know pheromones are a part of sexual attraction.
Also, there are studies in the correlation of what your dominant hand is and your sexuality. Since I don't feel like paraphrasing...
Data from 6,182 homosexual and 14,808 heterosexual men showed that homosexual men had 34% greater odds of being non--right-handed than heterosexual men, and data from 805 homosexual and 1,615 heterosexual women showed that homosexual women had 91% greater odds of being non--right-handed than heterosexual women. Both of these differences were statistically significant. A number of recent studies have also indicated that gender identity disorder is associated with non-right-handedness.
The anatomy of the brain is actually different in homosexual people. There are certain parts of the brain that are larger in homosexual men than in heterosexual men. These are differences that one day could give undeniable proof that genetics is a big part of lifestyle.
So why is it so difficult to believe that sexual orientation, depression and alcoholism is actually genetic and NOT a choice.
