RE: Would you accept a gay son?
There's research pointing towards genetic and prenatal roles in the development of male homosexuality. Two of the most significant findings:

1. Identical twins raised apart show higher rates of male homosexuality in both twins than fraternal twins raised apart. This points to genes.

2. The chance of a gay son is higher if he has a lot of older brothers (with the same mother). This is true even if those older brothers were not raised in the home with him (so not due to socialization with older brothers). One possible explanation: there's something in the hormonal environment of the womb that tries to provide a girl if the mother has already had several boys. This could influence brain development.

I'm not sure how settled the science is on this. If it's anything like climate science or other politicized topics, maybe not very well settled at all.

Clearly environment (including random chance) is also a factor, since there are identical twins with one gay and one not. But environment doesn't necessarily means parenting style. Judith Rich Harris wrote an interesting book called The Nurture Hypothesis about research showing just how little parenting style (outside of abuse) actually matters. I don't recall that she dealt with homosexuality there; her main topic was personality, looked at via studies of identical twins raised apart compared to non-identical siblings raised together.

I'm old enough to remember when gay activists insisted that homosexuality was not innate. That was a political stance that fit their strategy at the time. They'll probably swing back to that in another generation or two once we know how to identity 'gay' fetuses for aborting.
