I performed a search and came up with nothing.

I found this story rather intersting:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/7456588.stm

To summarise:

A group of scientists scanned 90 people of which some were straight, some were gay and some were lesbians. They found that gay men shared similar brain structure to straight women and lesbians shared similar brain structure to straight men. Also, in the amygdala, there were neural connections that differed from normal which strongly suggests that sexuality is set before birth, in the womb.

An interesting read.

Yeah, I read that, too. It'd be interesting to see what a scan of my brain looks like, seeing as I'm bisexual.
#4
Cool.

So now we can find out who is gay at birth instead of curing the millions of diseases which plague this planet.

I still think it's cool though

That's just more evidence to go with the multitude of research already done.

Scientists have noticed for some time that homosexual people of both sexes have differences in certain cognitive abilities, suggesting there may be subtle differences in their brain structure

Thats from the article. It was assumed and there was nothing concrete until now.

Indeed. It's interesting nonetheless... Still, I expect some bigots to come in and boo hoo all over it...

I'd rather know; if, statistically speaking, homosexuals are born 1 out of every 10 people, would bisexuals be born every 1 in 5?

Personally, I don't even see how people have an opinion on homosexuality.

I mean, isn't what gender a person likes to have sex with their own personal business? How does it affect anyone but that one person?

I guess it's religious issues and such.

Not only religious..Being a homosexual from an evolutionary standpoint is a pretty big flaw..

Really isnt.

Its actually just one of many population control mechanisms. If every member of a population was able to reproduce, the population would grow so fast that comptetion for food, space and mates would be so high that the population ultimately kills itself off. If some portion of the population is homosexual, it reduces competition between members of the population and keeps it in check in a similar manner as other mechanisms that control populations such as disease, avaliablity of food, space, mates etc.

Homosexuality has been observed in the animal kingdom and is not un natural as it is a one form of population control.

Not necessarily.

Homosexuals control population growth, even if only a small amount. Controlling population growth leaves more resources for existing people. Less resources are used up, which is good for the environment...

Wait a minute....I just got something....yes.....if homosexuals never have a child together, so that child's carbon footprint never happens......

BEING HOMOSEXUAL IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE FORM OF ENVIRONMENTALISM!!!!

Anyone see what I'm saying here?!?!

They got paedophiles on one. Their brain is different too.
They're not sure if that means anything though. I mean a musicians brain is different too but that's because they play music.
Doing something can cause the brain changes too.
I'm not saying that that's what happens in this case, but apparently that's what happens in other cases.

Well I could've put money on that.

It'd be creepy if they could genetically profile that and you could get your kid screened for Paedo, at least if there was a family history anyway.
