Thankfully Farkers are all intelligent enough and well educated enough to know the difference between correlation and causation, right?

Some are even so intelligent and well educated that they don't dismiss all correlation as coincidence.

How does this intersect with sexuality? Because I know a lot of gay weightlifters/bodybuilders and basically none of them are violent and as far as I know none of them own any guns.
