Those gay birds probably have autism too.

Would you describe your childhood as 'Fabulous'?

Props for Fred, but a different Mercury (new window) sprang to mind.

So being gay is a birth defect due to mercury poisoning.

Makes sense, Mercury is a pretty fabulous metal.

'In particular, there's no evidence for increased homosexuality in humans resulting from mercury poisoning, despite several long-term studies. "If the effect was as strong in humans as in the ibises, they'd have found it," '

Wtf? I had a mercury-flavored soy latte this morning, and I'm certainly not thinking about big, hard, meaty penises giving me the pleasure that I never get from my girlfriend or anything.

True, ibises don't have religion or public shame to actively deter homosexually inclined males.

Being ibises, they also don't have X and Y chromosomes, instead having Z and W chromosomes like other birds do. It makes you wonder, doesn't it? If the mechanism for determining gender across the entire class Aves is different from how gender is determined in our mammal species, would the effect on sexual behavior and gender preference for mates in humans from a specific chemical be the same as the effect in birds?

Apparently it's true. Everyone that played with Freddy Mercury was gay too.
