    Disclaimer! "Gay" was the term used in the article. I do not wish to intentionally offend anyone, so if you are offended, blame the publication... not me!

    I read an article in this week's New Scientist about the "gay gene" and how it is spread.

    Logically, you would expect the "gay gene" to stop eventually, because procreation between same-sex couples is practically nil.

    Those in denial could have children before they come out, and gay men could decide to donate sperm to sperm banks.

    But apparently there is another way that the gene has successfully spread... Women who carry the "gay gene" have more children than those that don't.

    The theory is that those women have different sexual urges/limitations, etc are are therefore more likely to have more children due to their open-ness.

    So... that implies that excessively horny, sexual open women are probably carrying the "gay gene".

    Interesting!

    Since when was gay an offensive word. Describes homosexuals quite nicely ie Happy :tongue:.

    There are loads of theories out there all of which I don’t think most gay people care about myself included. As the song goes I am what I am.

    OMG, spew alert. You are too funny.

    I must admit I thought it was the oddest thing to read amongst the water crisis and global warming research... interesting none-the-less!

    Another interesting path of research involves looking at the females gestational response to male embryos in general. Studies have shown that many if not most gay men have older brothers who are usually not gay and the more older brothers they have the more likely they are to be gay. This suggests that something is happening in the womb that is trying to disable the reproduction of male children in the next generation. One writer suggested a battle between the Chromosomes in the mitochondrian (exclusively female) and the y chromosome (exclusively male). Somehow, the woman's body reacts to the first male embryo with an attack that becomes stronger the more she is exposed to it so the second and third males are more and more affected by this attack response.
    As far as I know there is no "Gay" gene as yet, but from what I have read the genetic key will probably be fairly complicated for us nonscientists to understand. Luckily we don't need to know exactly why we are the way we are to love and understand ourselves and each other.

    I have a gay cousin who is #3 of 4 siblings, all sisters, all straight. He lives far away so I haven't seen him in years.
    I have a very good friend who has a gay son with a straight older brother. The gay son is gorgeous, mid 30s, slightly built but muscular, subtly effeminate with light hair and a light complexion. I always fantasize when masturbating and it's usually about him. I picture him as totally smooth with soft skin.
