    To date, studies are inconclusive, yet there are strong indicators for a combination of genetic and environmental causes for same sex attraction, not only in H. sapiens but also in many other species.

    Same-Sex Behavior Found in Nearly All Animals LiveScience June 2009
    Examples of same-sex behavior can be found in almost all species in the animal kingdom — from worms to frogs to birds — making the practice nearly universal among animals, according to a new review of research on the topic.

    Plenty O' Partners LiveScience Sept 2011
    Homosexuality has been documented in more than 450 species of vertebrates signaling that sexual preference is biologically determined in animals. From Male bonobos that hang from trees and engage in "penis fencing" to bull manatees and bottlenose dolphins, the animal kingdom tolerates all kinds of lifestyles.
    Do Gay Animals Change Evolution? Scientific American June 2009

    Animals that engage in same-sex sexual behavior may be acting in accord with adaptational strategies rather than against them--and bending the way we think about evolution

    Hell Gimmie, you talking about other posters twisting . . . I'll bet if we could see you right now you'd look like a pretzel.


    We've discussed the story. Now you want us to discuss what you want the story to be. I'm just not into fantasy, but I can see you are. Good on ya.

    I've agreed Savage, an adult, bullying school children because he is filled with hate and decided to take it out on kids. Sad . . . but true.

    I've said before and will repeat, you Gimmie want to change the story, but you have to stick to the one offered by the originator of the thread.

    Might I suggest you write another "hate story" and put in all the things you want in the story. But . . . . . . . it won't be this story.

    Billy ... how do you know the captive audience were all Christian school children? and really - CAPTIVE? some two dozen got up and walked out, sure is an interesting definition of 'captive'

    "wanna be journalist? BZZZZT! Wrong. Savage has had his words published in multiple outlets since the early '90s, he is presently the editorial director of the alternative weekly newspaper The Stranger in Seattle - so I think he qualifies as a 'journalist"

    and the description of the walkouts was "pansy asses" not "pansed ass"

    When the story gets updated to more accurately reflect reality, you still think only the original version should be argued over?

    I'm not up to date with the science, but it seems that what homosexuality isn't is a mental illness or personality disorder. As to whether or not homosexuality is an evolved thing? I don't know. Seems to me that every human biological system can develop with "flaws"; autism, hemophilia, spina bifida, anencephaly, etc. Some are benign, like extra digits, some are lethal. No one possibly blames these conditions on the person. Could homosexuality just be a similar condition in human sexuality? I really don't know, but it seems plausible...

    Gimme a break, that's the stupidest f-ing thing I've heard.

    You sound like Sarah Palin after the Letterman thing, "school children", playing on sympathies, trying to paint a false picture.

    The kids who refuse to challenge their own beliefs and put scripture in a logical historical context are cowards.

    Not just that they refused to "challenge their own beliefs" but they refused to listen to an alternative viewpoint - way to get an education.
