Desensitized Toward: Sexual Gays Imagery.
Now, two different messages about the Gay Victim are worth communicating. First, the public should be persuaded that gays are victims of circumstance, that they no more chose their sexual orientation than they did, say, their height, skin color, talents, or limitations. (We argue that, for all practical purposes, gays should be considered to have been born gay - even though sexual orientation, for most humans, seems to be the product of a complex interaction between innate predispositions and environmental factors during childhood and early adolescence.)

Desensitized toward: Sexual gays imagery.
If you have read my note properly, I said the same thing you are repeating again. Homosexuality, fornication, adultery and other big sins have been in existence before our time, I mean way long ago. Acting on them is a sin then and now.Randomly hooking up with other people and living in Zina is the norm now. When bad things get so rampant, people get so desensitized and unashamed of joining in. Does that make it right in Islam, no. Haram is always Haram and halal will remain as is.I am not saying that since someone is a Homosexual they are the worst Muslim, no. Allah said he can forgive all sins except shirk. But the worst kind of sin is one that a person does or flaunts publicly. Just because you are gay does not mean that you can impose other people to oblige and accept it as normal or Halal behavior.The imposing acceptance that is in the West is what is wrong. Allah knows best.
The results showed that the respondents changed their perception of sexually explicit material on the Internet over time depending on age, frequency of exposure and whether exposure was intentional. They became desensitized in terms of being less bothered by the sexual content. The results may indicate a normalization of sexually explicit material on the Internet during adolescence.
Following the substance addiction framework, it has been postulated that extensive pornography use may lead to tolerance.33,34,39 In line with the models of addictive sexual behavior, tolerance can manifest in 1 of 2 ways: (i) higher frequency or time devoted to pornography use, in an attempt to achieve the same level of arousal, (ii) seeking and consuming more stimulating pornographic material, as one becomes desensitized and searches for more arousing stimuli.33,34,40 While the first manifestation of tolerance is tightly related to duration and frequency of use, the second is not. It is better operationalized by the variability of consumed pornographic content, especially when this variability pertains to consumption of violent, paraphilic or even lawfully prohibited types of pornographic content (eg, pornographic scenes including minors). However, despite the mentioned theoretical claims, in relation to problematic pornography use and/or compulsive sexual behavior, the characteristics and variability in the content of consumed pornography have rarely been studied.
