My mom turned to me and said, " On 60 Minutes last night they said its a proven fact that the more boys you have, the more likely the last ones born, will be gay." Well I couldn't believe this and since my mom is gettin' pretty old, I just had to google it. This is the link. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/03/09/60minutes/main1385230.shtml And here are some quotes from it; ""The more older brothers a man has, the greater that man's chance of being gay," says Bailey. for every older brother a man has, his chances of being gay increase by one third. Older sisters make no difference, and there's no corresponding effect for lesbians. A first-born son has about a 2 percent chance of being gay, and the numbers rise from there. The theory is it happens in the womb. If the boy is left-handed, if his brain is organized in a left-handed fashion, it doesn't matter how many older brothers he has"" GRANTED I am no expert, but this seems to me to be the biggest pile of steaming crap I have heard in a long time. While reading the article a vision of CHAOS THEORY came into my mind, of some scientist watching "snow" on a tv screen LOOKING for messages from E.T. Why ? because you can find patterns in ANYTHING if you look long enough. To antagonize me even more.. the article went on to imply that the mother's frame of mind was the cause for an embryo to be gay. Why? Because the mom wanted a boy, though nature had wanted it to be a girl. Now I KNOW that if a mother is very nervous or stressed during pregnancy you can definitely see the results of that in the baby after its born, but to say that a mother's way of thinking can impose sexual preference?? Give me a break ! Scientists are saying this, what say you ?
