    Is it because they like dick, and have one of their own?

    People just have different tastes.

    The taste of cock included.

    Why can't it just be what the person likes? It always has to be a gene. I like women with big tits and green eyes. Pretty sure there's no gene for that. Making something "genetic" implies it's something that can be "fixed".

    I think I'm half gay on my mother's side, so what does that make me? A quarter-faggot once removed?

    Oh Don,

    Making it a genetic d/o means it can't be fixed.

    Sounds like a man who speaks from experience.
    I knew there was a reason I liked you.

    Then why are they working on cures for other genetic conditions?

    Oh Don,

    A genetic defect is encoded into a cells DNA. They are working on cures for them for the same reason there are people working on time travel and teleporters.

    How do you really know for sure your not gay until you suck a cock and don't enjoy it? I know 100% I'm not gay. Do you?

    Oh, SatansCheerledr, you're hurting your argument with condescension and obvious lack of scientific data. People are absolutely looking at making drastic changes on the DNA level both for diseases (cures) and markers for frivolous stuff like obesity. If being gay is part of the genetic code, I PROMISE you that there will be people researching their fundamentalist christian asses off to try to knock that shit out henceforth and hitherto.

    Mothers make gay boys and fathers make gay girls...... I thought we already knew that on some level.

    I still don't get why no one bothers looking into gametogenic recombination as the explanation for homosexuality. It explains it almost flawlessly, and yet there is virtually no literature addressing it. Thousands of tiny chunks of X trade places with chunks of Y in every human being ever born. I'm not saying it's THE obvious answer, but you'd think they'd throw a few million in grants into that before fucking epi-marks.

    I guarantee you're about the 13000th person to think of that.

    So you are 100% straight because you have sucked dick before but didnt like it and I might not be straight because I havent sucked dick and have no desire to? Let me double check where this falls on the Kinsey scale...

    You misunderstand me. I'm not saying there is no merit to working on time travel or teleporters. All research is valuable and can lead to all sorts of secondary discoveries and applications. My point is that it is research on something that is currently impossible. Just because it is currently impossible doesn't mean people shouldn't try. Nor that it always will be.

    None the less, Don's statement, "Making something "genetic" implies it's something that can be "fixed"." is in fact the opposite of what he stated. Making something "genetic" implies it's something that cannot be "fixed" at this current time in scientific progress.

    No, he didn't, that's why I needed to clarify.
