    I was riveted to Law and Order tonight because there was a murder case involving a gay activist who killed a doctor who allegedly found a gay gene. He killed him because he didnt want anyone to abort their children because they didnt want them to be gay. Wow! That literally took my breath away.... Did anyone else see it?

    No, but I've heard talk of this sort of idea before, locating a gene and testing babies before they are born for the "gay gene".


    Side Note: In Science class we talked about people testing their unborn babies for genetic defects and aborting them if they test positive.

    What a dangerous game to play. Think of all of the wonderful people who may never see the light of day because some one has chosen to play God.

    I'm kidding on the show they said that the direction of the hair whorl determines whether your straight or gay. It obviously doesn't.

    so, that is meant as anti-abortion in general?

    or only as it applies to aborting gays?

    Happens every day, thanks to amniocentesis.

    On a related note, Gattaca is one of my favorite movies of all time.

    I don't think there is a gene fore homosexuality. There are so many chases of people who were gay and then turned back straight. I think some people may be programmed to lean towards the same sex. The thing is: Love the sinner hate the sin. I think it is wrong to abort a child based on the possibility that they might be gay. I am glad Hazel mentioned Gattaca. I remember watching that movie; it is a scary reality. It is up to God what happens with a child, embrace the child--they are considered a blessing.

    There isn't a particular gene for homosexuality, but I think that it CAN be caused by a genetic inhibition of chemicals in the body. Researchers have noted homosexual behavior in the offspring of female rats who were stressed during conception and pregnancy, as one example.

    nope sorry if they "turned" straight then they are either in denial or were never gay to begin with.

    So basically if a gay man goes straight, he was either gay or straight all along. Profound!

    Well, I was in denial for the longest time that I was gay, but I find myself wanting to be with girls more and more as I become an adult. This bothers me, because everyone - both gay and straight - keeps insisting that it's NOT a phase, and that i'm actually gay but afraid to admit it. Regardless of what you believe, you have to admit that sexuality is a lot more complex than we realize.

    You think that or do you believe that? Just asking b/c my uncle Morey thinks my cousin is gay because his mom was stressed w/rats during her conception and it produced my cousin.

    Egads i can't believe you wrote that post!

    I heard that in searching for that 'gay' gene, they just flip a switch and the newly developed 'gay-Dar' machine turns on and makes the ID within minutes.

    You know, when I read the title of this, I thought there was a gay guy named Gene on Law & Order.
