Anyone that does not believe someone can be born gay...

the real question is why hasn't it evolved to be more prevalent in a world with 6.5 billion people eating and drinking the world dry.

I'm far from a genetists but wouldn't a gene that couldn't be carried to the offspring (no offspring from such) disappear kinda quick.

Unless it was of some use to the species as a whole, thus allowing the individuals in the species to live longer and reproduce more, in which case it would not have disappeared.

Such as a failsafe to help control overpopulation ?

Damn jer thats the best argument I think you have made in this forum. :P

many genes are recessive. and many people who are gay either don't realize, or deny it. the world could be 100% gay and there would still be more than plenty procreation going on.

i'm not arguing for a gay gene, i don't care either way. just sayin'

I ain't never seen a gay baby.

Sometimes they accidentally put pink on a boy baby. That's how it all happens.

The gene would persist through the social stigma that forces a large number of homosexuals to stay in the closet.

Where do bisexuals fall in the whole gene argument.

Are they just cheating?

IMHO...I think it has to do more with acceptance.

Just because a female has an abnormal lack of estrogen or higher amount of testosterone doesn't make one lesbian. What it does is cause her environment to prejudge her to be lesbian. Then when put into the lesbian culture she's accepted and life goes on. Does that mean she was born lesbian? No. It just means she finds acceptance in a group of people that have already been ostracized by not fitting the mold of what's deemed "normal".

I don't think Madonna was born knowing she'd like dudes...then dabble in Dennis Rodman...then women...then bullwhips up her ass...then men again...then whatever else will screw her rank butt nowadays.

Honestly I would fall in the pretty silly catagory for 97% of my life.

This is mainly due to my environment. (Small Baptist Southern Town) Where blacks marrying whites was almost as tabo as homosexuals.

Once I met my wife and hung out with several of her friends who are gay/lesbian I can somewhat accept that some people could just be wired differently. That said, I think a large % of the gay community CHOOSE such a lifestyle because of any number of factors.

what you're suggesting either needs to involve gene teleportation, rape, or homosexuals "experimenting in college".

If person A's genetic anomaly allows person B, C, D and E to reproduce better, then how does person A's genetic material get passed on?

a) B C D and E gang rape and impregnate A or vice versa

B) A gets drunk at a sorority mixer and gets it on with B and C even though it "feels so wrong".

c) A's genetic material gets transferred to E during a lightning storm on a full moon.
