But I could be wrong. After all, I'm only human
A working class hero is something to be
I am familiar with many of the studies, they have been cited often in past discussions of the topic. Most of the studies were conducted by Ph.D.’s in disciplines other than genetics. They all simply examined groups of sexually mature twins, focusing on those pairs containing members who were homosexual. The very few that might have involved genetic examinations were done prior to the development of modern techniques, and NONE examined sets of identical twin babies..The first very large, reliable study of identical twins was conducted in Australia in 1991, followed by a large U.S. study about 1997. Then Australia and the U.S. conducted more twin studies in 2000, followed by several studies in Scandinavia, according to Dr. Whitehead.
They ALL PRESUMED that since they were identical twins developed from a single shared zygote, then their DNA must also be identical. All participants were sexually mature and any genetic “drift” (difference) noted by geneticists was assumed to be epigenetic. This has been proven untrue, identical twins can and do have different DNA from birth: Identical Twins Differ Genetically | LiveScience
This 2012 study shows that somatic and other gene mutations occur at a very high rate, demonstrating that identical twins often have different genetic structures at birth.
All the studies used by the author of the meta-study, Dr. Whitehead, were conducted before the November 2012 revelation that examination of genetic codes in 92 sets of identical twins showed a number had clear differences in their genetic codes which occurred while still in the womb.
Dr. Whitehead, the Ph.D., who collated his meta-study is not a geneticist.
So, we now know that Identical Twins do not always have identical DNA, that in fact they frequently have different DNA structures in the mix. While this doesn’t prove there is a “gay gene,” it does disprove any assertion that just because only one of a pair of twins is gay there must be no such thing as a gay gene.“At best genetics is a minor factor,” says Dr. Neil Whitehead, PhD. Whitehead…His PhD is in biochemistry and statistics.

If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.
Are you going to say the same thing for incest? Beastiality? Polygamy?
Then that would make them bisexual not gay. Sheesh.Oh and yes I know women can be gay. I knew a "lesbian" its funny she decided she was a lesbian AFTER she had 2 kids with a guy...quite amusing..
