I think it's entirely environmental. I'll leave it at that.

Uhh... just because something may be genetic does not grant it any positive standing. It is at best an anomaly. Sickle cell is genetic too. It does not mean however that we need to promote it and celebrate its cause as a condition among people.


Yes.  But last time I checked, those with sickle-cell anaemia aren't persecuted for having it.

That is largely a function of societal environmental factors, which is a very complex set of conditions. And I am not advocating persecution; only understanding and remedy (if possible). Still, you don't see too many people with sickle cell being satisfied with their predicament.

And there is always the idea of Eugenics, as far as sickle cell and all other 'deficiencies' are concerned.

There was something on the Colbert Report once with this guy that was talking about how some male fish and frogs are gaining more feminine features due to the content of the water... Perhaps it has something to do with homosexuality as well, i don't know... I feel like there should be some sort of explanation as to why some people have certain traits

Minus;

are you relating homosexuals to feminine fish?
lol

Well not exactly but there are people with gender identity issues... it seems like there's more mention of homosexuality than at any point before in history, but I could very well be biased in that regard due to the prevalence of media attention upon the subject. Does anyone have any information on that sort of thing?

Minus;

Thats probably right.
But i'm pretty sure it existed far before any of this.

I know it existed, but has the proportion changed at all?

Minus;

Well i think it has always existed in the same proportion just not so open.

No. Its an ongoing thing that will never completely engulf the population, or completely die down.
It will be something that will just vary, like being left handed or something.
wait, being left handed is genetic?

Being straight is the basic framework of evolution. We're only on this earth to reproduce with women.
Homosexuality seems to breed from intolerance. That's why you'll find that almost half the male population of Barbados is Gay-and rising. It's something about the oppressive, overly religious conditions in places like that where homosexuality seems to grow and multiply like a fungus.


Explain homosexual behavior in animals.
