Homosexuality ‘may be triggered by environment after birth’

Homosexuality may be triggered by environmental factors during childhood after scientists found that genetic changes which happen after birth can determine whether a man is straight or gay.

The finding is highly controversial because it suggests that some men are not born gay, but are turned homosexual by their surroundings. It also raises privacy concerns that medical records could reveal sexuality.


I don’t want to imagine Liberace’s “environmental” factors.

    An environment like, say, Afghanistan?

    Homosexuality “may be triggered by environment after birth” or at least influenced by them. Seems very true to me but remember he will attack you for having these very same views!

  • Xavier

    So now there’s a 70% accurate blood test for determining sexuality?
    That’ll never be misused.

      …to kill over a hundred million people.
      Sorry, off topic, I know.
      But, I got into an argument today with a co-worker about communism.
      He’s a farmer who said there are good things about communism.
      I said there is nothing good about communism and told him to joojle victims of communism.

        Ask him if he wants his farm “collectivized”.

          Good idea.
          I will.
          He already thinks the wheat board was a good thing.
          I tried to point out to him how wrong it was to force people to sell to a single desk against their will and he couldn’t see it.
          He said the Americans were paying more now that the wheat board had lost their monopoly until it collapses and then they will lower their prices.
          I said well why doesn’t your dad deal with the wheat board anymore if he’s so convinced of their innate superiority.
          No answer.

            Selling wheat – back in the day – could be interesting. I remember Mum talking about her father taking good quality wheat to the local agent and having it assessed as low-grade. Grandad had kept a sample and won that battle, but it seems a good few country agents were telling the farmers their grains were low-quality (and, therefore, lower priced) while selling them down the line as Grade A. The wheat pools, if not the wheat board, were set up to provide honest grading.

            Support for the Wheat Board is rather dependent upon how close a farmer is to other choices. Across the southern Prairies, there’s the US market easily at hand. Not so for the northern farmer.

            My biggest beef about the Wheat Board was that it should apply to all grain farmers equally, not just to those who farmed in western Canada.

            Because we all know that government agencies have never ever engaged in fraudulent enterprise. Sheesh.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            It shouldn’t apply to any grain farmers.
            If the wheat board was such a good and competitive enterprise it wouldn’t have needed to be enforced with the threat of prosecution.

          Sounds like a kulak to me, comrade. Thank you for bringing him to our attention.

  • But gender is “fluid”.

    Junk science strikes again.

    • Alain

      Which is why the radical activists fought to change sex to gender. This is what happens when we allow neo-marxists to bastardise language.

      • Exactly.

    It is likely that homosexuality is triggered by abuse. Many mental problems are.
