(Daily Mail)   Scientists claim to have discovered a "gay gene" that might prove homosexuality is decided by biology, not choice. Still can't explain how that gene gets passed down   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 209

TheJoe03: TOSViolation: Aussie_As: TOSViolation: Aussie_As: TOSViolation: They also discovered the Sickle cell gene too, but that doesn't mean we celebrate the fact that people are afflicted with it and refuse to treat them for the condition.

There's a fairly clear genetic basis to race as well. Which ones are you thinking of "treating"?

Race is not an affliction.  Homosexuality is an affliction much the same as Pica.

You're hilarious.

Your humor-detection is faulty.  This is not a joke.  No one should ever WANT to be gay.  It's an affliction.  No one should want to be agoraphobic or have OCD either.  There are plenty of afflictions for which we have no good treatment or cure.  Look how many people have cancer.  Look how many people are morbidly obese.  Very few people WANT to be morbidly obese, but still continue to overeat.

If there was a simple pill that would permanently cure breast cancer, Sickle cell, type 1 diabetes, schizophrenia, Alzheimer's, Parkinsons, or yes...HOMOSEXUALITY before (or after) symptoms show up, then the patient would be a fool not to take it (assuming no negative side effects).

There is no benefit to being gay.  There are plenty of gay people who make perfectly good contributions to the world which would not suffer one bit if they weren't gay.  It's not an asset.

Are you really comparing being gay with having cancer? Are you really that stupid?


Yes.  And yes.

 TOSViolation: What about me?  I don't want kids.  I don't want to get married (EVER).

I've got good news for you ...

Fafai: omeganuepsilon: I'm curious if I'm marked at all. I could certainly use a good laugh.

I just want to know how many times I'm marked as anti-feminist. I can think of at least 6. Anti-feminist isn't the same thing as anti-woman, so that's fine by me. I am opposed to self-serving academic circle-jerkery, yes.

What is the point tallying this stuff? So that you know exactly how much to hate or disregard people? Posts should stand alone and speak for themselves. I actually removed all my tags. While it's helpful for remembering people, I find it's a tool that ultimately limits meaningful discourse around here because people just get pigeonholed for saying something once (or twice or x4), and they become reduced to that one thing.


What I find to be the case a lot, here on fark at any rate...If you call out an individual on a point where they're wrong, misleading, trollish, or just for being an asshole, you're suddenly a bigot against whatever "group" they belong to or feel that they're speaking up for.  They feel they couldn't possibly be at fault, and that you must dislike them for other reasons.  Classic Appeal to Spite.

TheJoe03: I have you marked as racist if that makes you laugh.


It does, as it would various past roomies friends and co-workers of mine, from various races and nationalities.

I agree.  Not so much for content, but given the name....It's like people replying to, well, I can't call out farkers that aren't present.

ciberido: montex: If there is a "gay gene", then how is it possible that sometimes identical twins can sometimes have one gay and one straight?

Because the gay gene, if it even exists, is unlikely to be the only factor.


Odd, since so many people insist that it is genetic, and won't even consider any other possibilities.

Really?  I wasn't aware of that.  Care to list a few people who "won't consider any other possibilities"?

I suspect they exist only in his imagination... Or else he's confusing "genetic" as being the only way it's not a "choice"... Some people don't know about or consider things like epigenetics, hormones, in-utero environment changes, etc... I've always heard the latter causes touted by most people as the most likely explanations, much more often than I've heard people champion a "gay gene"...

Because sticking your dick in feces is haute couture. And AIDS.
