Now that the ridiculous ‘scientific’ declaration that homosexuality is strictly genetically determined—an article of faith fiercely held by the adherents of white homosexual privilege—has landed in the dust heap of faux facts, we are now presented with another ‘it ain’t their fault’ fallacy. Yep, yet another government-funded research project to uncover the politically correct cause of gayness.
Take a gander at the latest bit of politically driven, queer-pandering bullshit masquerading as ‘science’. These academic bozos claim to have unlocked the puzzle of why people turn out gay.
Scientists may have finally solved the puzzle of what makes a person gay, and how it is passed from parents to their children. A group of scientists suggested Tuesday that homosexuals get that trait from their opposite-sex parents: A lesbian will almost always get the trait from her father, while a gay man will get the trait from his mother.
Scientists from the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis say homosexuality seems to have an epigenetic, not a genetic link. Long thought to have some sort of hereditary link, a group of scientists suggested Tuesday that homosexuality is linked to epi-marks — extra layers of information that control how certain genes are expressed.
These epi-marks protect fathers and mothers from excess or under exposure to testosterone — when they carry over to opposite-sex offspring, it can cause the masculinization of females or the feminization of males which can lead to a child becoming gay. These markers are “highly variable” and that only strong epi-marks will result in a homosexual offspring.
Evolutionarily speaking, if homosexuality was solely a genetic trait, scientists would expect the trait to eventually disappear because homosexuals wouldn’t be expected to reproduce.
Let me offer up a few observations and queries in regard to the hypothesis put forth here by these oh so learned progressive ones at the University of California. And feel free to add your own thoughts to this discussion.
The study seems to confuse gender identity with sexual orientation—note the masculinization of females and the feminization of males jargon. Are there lesbians and gay men who struggle with gender issues? Indeed there are. But I would venture to say that the majority of lesbians and gay men don’t, at least not the gay men and women I have ever known in my life. If you want to indulge in stereotypes here, then how about all those very femme lesbians out there in the real world? And what about all those very butch gay men? And how about those gay men and women who would never identify themselves as either butch or femme? And most dykes and gay men are unrecognizable as such by virtue of appearance or affect. So if these scientific goobers at UC have discovered anything, it might be a possible cause of gender confusion, but it sure as hell ain’t the cause of homosexuality.
If homosexuality is caused by epi-marks as claimed, then how does one explain the ‘awareness’ phenomenon? Is there some type of dormancy period involved with these epi-marks for those women and men who come out as gay later in life? And what about those folks who leave the gay lifestyle to embrace heterosexuality? Did their gay epi-marks suddenly just fade away? Were the gay epi-marks of late bloomers somehow psychologically cloaked or denied by them? And if one can psychologically deny their sexual orientation for decades on end, then doesn’t that imply that homosexuality, at least in some cases, can be ‘overcome’?
How about those lesbians who forcefully state that their homosexuality is a CHOICE? How about those celebrity and activist dykes like Camille Paglia, Cynthia Nixon, Anne Heche, Kate Kendell, Jackie Black, Roberta Sklar? Are these women deluding themselves about the root cause of their sexual orientation? Are we to tag these gals as bisexual by nature to make the homosexual lobby happy or do we just run them out of our community on a rail, writing them off as self-haters? Isn’t that the usual response by the Gay Inquisition?
And how about bisexuality? Do these pesky epi-marks turn on and off? Do bisexual men and women get a conflicting dose of masculinization and feminization from their fathers and mothers that makes them prone to both heterosexual and homosexual behavior? Gee, sounds a bit bi-wildering to me.
Sexual orientation, and the gay marriage and school indoctrination programs that go along with this tainted tolerance movement, is a controversial political football. Any so-called study today MUST find in favor of the social/political agenda of Gay, Inc. or the researchers involved will be hounded from their positions, lose their livelihoods, and get slandered as homophobic haters. Welcome to America’s Middle Ages, where the Church of Progressivism uses its own brand of witch hunts and persecutions to silence dissenters.
How interesting that the findings of this ‘research’ are released just when there are a couple of gay-related cases coming before the Supreme Court. How positively coincidental!
This ‘study’ was conducted at the University of California, an institution that would rather create high-paying ‘diversity’ positions on their campus than offer decently paid fellowships to cancer researchers.
