    Isn't it! :wink:

    ...

    "Since Roughgarden believes that the hetero/homo distinction is a purely cultural creation, and not a fact of biology, she thinks it is only a matter of time before we return to the standard primate model."

    I agree with the fact that the distinction is cultural creation, but I dont agree that it will return to her said "standard primate model".

    With our evolution of intellegence, comes the need to compartmentalise. So while standard primates can have a social gelling of mixed sexual practices, it is in our nature to seperate the two in our culture, and I dont think this will change.

    Interesting article.

    It definitely "breeds" the idea (pardon the pun) that social bonding is of equal if not greater importance than/as social multiplication.
