An article in this week’s BMJ examines the search for the gay gene
Have a read and send us your thoughts
Does the gay gene look anything like “Gene Gay”:http://www.evote.com/players/2000election/house/NC_Gene%20Gay.asp ?
Not sure whether the discovery of such a gene would be a
positive or negative thing for gay people. On the one hand, it
would lend weight to the claim of many that they were “born
with” their homosexuality.
But I’m not sure I’ve ever completely believed that homosexuality
is always only an inherited biological quality and never, ever has
at least a little to with environmental factors in some cases and
A gene for everything?
The only workable hypothesis I can find with regards to the ‘Gay Gene’
is that there is no ‘Gay Gene’. But there may be a ‘Rape Gene’.
A cluster of genes that combine to form a bias toward Rape, a gene that has been part of the gene pool for a very very long time.
The Rape Gene would cause significant impendence to viable populations with regard to inbreeding. So, the genetic work around with those individuals with an excessive bias toward rape would be to combine it with an attraction to the same sex. For if a male is raped then there would be no chance of fertility, thus protecting the population from Inherited recessive gene disorders that are produced by in-breeding.
There are no ‘gay Genes’ but there maybe, ‘Rape Genes’.
