interesting commentary in the times
about gay people and research into biological roots of homoness.
i've always been puzzled by the genetic origins of gaywad behavior - what were the circumstances that encouraged these genes rather than selecting them out?
the op ed piece wonders "Perhaps the environments that set off homosexuality today didn't exist while our genes were being selected." which doesn't make much sense to me. is he saying then that it's environmental?
i still think that the gay gene evolved from primitive family groups that survived the elements because members of the group were gay, did not contribute more children to the tribe, and were able to assist in caring for the multitude of children birthed by the horny heteros. the survival of these children passed the gay gene on and on.. it's the best idea i can come up with. anyone got a better theory?
