A new study apparently supports the “Born Gay” theory, toppling the previously popular “Chooses to Subject Self to Lifetime of Discrimination and Ridicule Just to Anger God” theory. Surprise!
This is pretty interesting. I’ve read in the past about a theory of homosexuality related to the number of siblings one has, and this study does seem to show a correlation. This doesn’t mean that the two things are necessarily intertwined, but it is compelling evidence for a
genetic biological (thanks to Loon for the correction) root to sexuality — even men with older siblings who had been raised apart from those siblings fell in line with the statistics.
If such a theory is proven to be true, I can just imagine the response of bigoted religious zealots who are currently using the Bible to try to stop same sex marriage from becoming a reality in the US. In public, I’m sure they’ll still be crying that the science is wrong and that gays are morally bankrupt hellbound perverts; but in private, they’ll be slipping on a condom for fear that their first few boys used up all the hetero magic.
So as predicted, the science experiment is put off another day. I’m going to start asking around to see if someone else has a remote since Motoko can’t be trusted to remember.
Also, I want to give everyone a head’s up that I’m jetting to Europe on Saturday for two weeks, which may explain why I can’t hold a solid thought in my head for longer than 30 seconds. Seriously, this blog post took four hours and included no fewer than 83 Meditteranean-hued daydreams.
Because I’m not certain when I’ll be near a computer, guest bloggers will be helping me out. More info on that in the next few days.
