Gay Straight Brain Study
« on: June 23, 2008, 09:28:23 PM »
I think I've heard this before.  Here's an updated brain study on gay and straight people and an attempt to determine why we are the way we are.

You'll find the Washington Post article at this web link:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/06/22/AR2008062201994.html


Pay particular attention to the signs scientists say that signify a gay person:

- counterclock wise curly hair at the back of the head
- unusually long fingers
- smaller portion of the brain
- prone to hearing a ringing in the ears
- prefers jobs in caring fields such as social work and teaching

Now, as Linda Richmond would say on Saturday Night Live . . . "Discuss amongst yourselves"   ;)

"He is my oldest child. The shy and retiring one over there with the Haitian headdress serving pescaíto frito."

Personally, I hope they never find a nice simple explanation for gayness. If they do, the obvious next step is to try and eradicate it. My suspision/hope is that it is complex and unique to each individual.

I'm gay and really don't care how or why. Accept me and love me for who I am and stop trying to explain me as a genetic or hormonal or emotional abberation that should/can be corrected.
Be forgiving, be grateful, be optimistic

The paranoia in me (which is better known to many than myself) agrees with this statement.

Sincerely,

Soon to be eradicated, Gay chromosome I69
