I personally have not, surprisingly. I live in an area that has a very high lesbian population and I haven't met anyone. That would be an interesting statistic to find out. Theoretically homosexuality should be the same ratio in the cf population as the regular population. But you never know. If sexuality is indeed determined by nurturing then cf very well could have an impact. But who knows<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0"> Have a nice day.-Nichole

Lois- I haven't met anyone with CF that is gay (that I knew of) and would venture to say that you might have better luck searching a GLBT website and asking if anyone has CF...Nichole- You're not actually attempting to compare CF with Homosexuality, are you? -Lloyd

No, that is silly! Why would I do that? I'm just saying that no one really knows what determines sexuality. If you notice, in my post I said that "If SEXUALITY is indeed determined by nurturing then cf very well could have an impact." I did not say "homosexuality." No one knows what determines sexuality. There is the whole argument over nature v. nurture. I personally don't care which it is. However, cf can impact a persons life greatly in the nurturing aspect. It was just a thought. Maybe I'm blind, but I honestly cannot see how I may have misled you to believe that I was comparing cystic fibrosis to homosexuality. -Nichole

Nichole, Oops, my bad. I misread your sentence about homosexuality in the CF population being proportionate to homosexuality to the general population. Yes, that does make sense - theoretically. I'm now understand that your point was that CF may have an impact on one's sexuality... Anway, keep posting- your posts seem insightful and I enjoy reading them!
