Genes

Evolutionary homosexuality doesn't make sense. I mean, if you were gay you wouldn't have the desire to reproduce. Evolution favors traits that aid reproduction, and being gay clearly doesn't do that.

It turns out that if you are gay then you mother would have a 'man-loving' gene. This makes your mother have more sex with your father creating more children thus ensuring survival of the species.

Unfortunately this gene is sometimes passed down to the child, thus causing homosexuality.

So yes there is a gay gene, and no homosexuality is not a choice.

woot! evolution!

  11. I believe that homosexuality can be either due to the individuals society + upbringing or else they were born that way. What ever the reason live and let live!

    Nah, but all of Greece was homosex at one time.

  13. i could have told you this 10 years ago. why the fuck would anyone choose to be gay besides not being able to score chicks?

    i wish i could choose to be straight. it's just not natural for me.

  14. Either way, I don't mind. Gay is ok! :)

  15. You still would think that evolution would have shifted the gene to the female chromosome so that it's not expressed in male off-spring... but either way you are what you are...

  17. Good info. Homosexuals are always getting shitted on. I have gay friends, but I just let them do their thing.

  18. There are gay women who want children...

  19. Good info. Regardless whether its choice or genetics, why would anyone care? They are not hurting you directly. They are not being gay to you. Seriously, why care?

    Following btw.

  20. wow...this is actually the first time I've ever heard this argument, although I have a couple of gay friends. something nice to throw in, whenever a nonsensical discussion on this topic comes up (as it does often enough)
