The Science Of Sexual Orientation
Uhh...just go here and read it http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/03/09/60minutes/main1385230.shtml


It did something really weird when I tried to c/p it. Anyway the part about the older brothers works for me...I have three older brothers (all straight) and I'm right-handed and now I'm gay. Now when I come out, I can tell my mother it's all her fault! :angel:

Hmm.

I have no older brothers :eek: ;) It does not work for me :p

That Adam kid is adorable, but it's also sad for him.

Hmmm...

I am the eldest male. My younger brother is not gay.
I certainly loved playing with dolls instead or cars and trucks, but I never wished to be a girl...and I certainly never wanted a room painted in a pastel colour (still don't)!

Quite an interesting article but nothing I haven't heard elsewhere, I don't know what to think really i guess it must be at least partly biological because so often there is more than one gay person in families, my cousin and I are both gay and so may of my gay friends have gay brothers and sisters. They didn't have much to say about us lesbians but lookin back on it I guess I was mostly into boys toys when I was a kid, I used to be real pissed off when someone gave me dollys for christmas etc. I was like what am I ment to do with this? :lol: Just didn't see the point of dollys! Never wished I was a boy though.

I saw this report on "60 Minutes" :eek: That theory on older brothers is just... :shrug:

And that little queen...bless his heart! I only wish I was so out and proud...at 9 years old. :unsure:

Well I could say I'm a typical gay ;)

That article was very interesting. Some of those arguments seem fishy, but I can identify to most of them. I've always felt a lil like Adam, maybe not as early as him, but I always was picked on cause i wasn't the regular macho man, as early as like 4rth grade.

But as weird as some of those researches might seem, it is necessary to have them.

BTW, i love that the name of the Doctor is Breedlove :lol:
