As an old fogie of 53, I am proud to admit watching 60 Minutes on sunday nights from 7-8pm since the age of 15. last night, reporter Leslie Stahl did her segment on the research Northwestern University is doing on gay/straight identical twins. conclusions? 1. among male siblings who are right- handed, the oldest is least likely to be gay(2%). the likelihood increases with each younger male born into the family. 2. twin males can have exactly the same environmental conditions and become 1 as gay, the other as straight. 3. among both males and females, the movement of hands during conversation is a reliable predictor in childhood of sexual orientation as adults. 4. homosexuality is NOT a chosen lifestyle-it is largely genetic, hormonal and involuntary. THIS IS SOMETHING WE OLD FOGIES HAVE WAITED FOR DECADES TO SEE on network TV : actual scientific evidence about my population. No myth, no old wives' tales, no right -wing religious bullshit and no Republican platform nonsense. just empirical data with anecdotal , video interviews. The story closed with gay men and women embracing each other. their hands wandered to touch each other's clothed buttocks. handholding and kissing in public.This is not new or shocking here in CA. But it must infuriate the Bible Belt. God bless the first amendment, CBS news, Leslie Stahl and Northwestern U! there is a God: a God who loves gay men and women. I would love to hear your reactions, folks. I am so pleased, i am going to work to incorporate this into the pride parade in Santa cruz, CA on Sunday, June 4 of this year! if you happen to be in the area, please come see us. This will be our 30th year of gay/lesbian pride with a parade in a city of 50,000.
