More likely in the coach’s private office than the womb...
That influence is the pervert down the street or at sport camp who grabs a young kid and screws up his life forever. It’s a predatory thing.
Sounds like they are trying to add some dogma to their new religion.
.....and how long before there are claims of similar epi-marks in the DNA of pedophiles?
Scientists claim, studies suggest....well, that clinches it, fellas. Close the books ‘cause now we know.
It’s a choice, like any other behavior.
Faggotry is little different from alcoholism. And I’ll pi** away a nickle on AIDS research just as soon as I flush one for researching why an alcoholic’s liver does poorly.
Er, you guys are not quite getting this.
1. The theory is interesting, and more importantly, as stated, its easily testable. That means that this can clearly be discarded if it doesn’t test out, unlike other vague explanations that hang on because they are untestable. This thing either is true, shortly to be determined, or its gone and everyone can go back to their favorite theories.
2. If it does test out, then potentially not only can this be tested for, it can also potentially be prevented or even cured. Gene therapy perhaps.
3. At least a simple early pregnancy genetic test probably can be produced. That would make an interesting sort of leverage on abortion policy, for one thing.
“Scientists” should stick to science instead of making things up
My BS meter keeps pegging out.
Really? Try soy baby food products.
Looking on the bright side, this may be the first step towards a cure.
I believe that homosexuality is congenital. There are also many birth defects that are also congenital as well. Why would it be genetic when it ends the genetic line? What possible purpose would that serve the gene pool as it won’t continue the line and therefore not add any more variance?
I cannot remember the scientist, but it was someone talking about how horrible AIDS was for medical research. It was politically popular and pulled in money that could save far more lives by studying malaria, tuberculosis and diseases that kill more per year than AIDS had at that time.
Someone brought up a really good point earlier. If this is a genetic defect they found via testing, now they can start testing for it. And many parents would choose to abort. How could liberals then disagree, if parents can abort for any other genetic defect and even for their convenience?
Yet you’d see the left and especially LBGT become pro-life in a hurry.
**environment is the womb itself.**
I totally disagree.
As a retired psychologist, I disagree....strongly.
