Reminds me of the time I hired a Mexican to paint my back porch. He was getting his stuff out of his truck to start the job so I went to run some errands. When I came back he was in the front loading up his truck.
I said did you paint my back porch already? He said it wasn't a porch it was a Mercedes. Lo and behold he had painted my vintage Mercedes I keep in the back yard with house paint!

That's where you're wrong. It's the writer's problem if the reader misses his brilliance. Read Vonnegut's rules for writing fiction-

So, you'd rather write to be noticed? You don't know how to write for pleasure and self-fulfillment? You need "rules" for writing--and not even your OWN rules at that.

Pity...

That's at least the THIRD time you've made that same lame post. It was dopey the first and second times. Please stop. You're embarrassing yourself.

Just to be clear, this is a THEORY. It is not FACT. And based on the same article that YOU cherry-picked, there is no CLEAR agreement that this THEORY answers the question,“What causes some people to be born gay?”
Look at the wording throughout this article. At every point the author indicates that this is speculation and theory—a hypothesis.
For example:
--“Instead, the scientists POSIT…”
--“…brain MAY underlie sexual orientation…”
--“…that steer sexual development in males COULD promote homosexual…”
--“But, she cautioned, so far the THEORY “is not supported by any data.”
--“It’s a little bit vain to think we’ll find the answer to homosexuality as a whole.”
--“The answer, they HYPOTHESIZD, has to do with sensitivity to androgens.”
--“…the researchers HYPOTHESIZED that differences in sensitivity to these signals between male and female fetuses help mediate their sexual differentiation.”
--“But, the researchers SPECULATE perhaps they could be inherited…”
--“It ASSUMES the same mechanism [for development of sexual orientation] in both sexes ... and that androgen levels play an important role in the development of sexual orientation”—NEITHER OF WHICH HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED, he said.”
----------
Finally, there simply is NO indication that the theory represents a defective process. In fact, McCarthy, one of the neuroscientist interviewed in the article, says “Fascinating as it may be to understand the biological basis of sexual orientation, however, not everyone is convinced it’s a necessary line of investigation.“Should we test this? Is it important for us to know?” asked McCarthy.“HOMOSEXUALITY IS NOT A DISEASE, IT’S A PART OF NATURAL HUMAN VARIATION. I’m not sure there’s a good reason to delve this deeply into it. I think we’ve reached the point that we have enough evidence that there’s a biological basis for sexual orientation.”
----------
Kim, I always appreciate when you post these little blurbs. It gives me an opportunity to show what is TRULY KNOWN about the origins of homosexuality—nothing.
VV, VV, VV. I've never disputed it is, at present, a theory. You know that. Keeping in mind, this is the most likely cause, by far, currently on the table!

What YOU have asserted is that even if it bears out, it is not a defect. This article simply spells out what the other references I posted indicated.

"But if epi-marks that direct sexual development ARE NOT ERASED CORRECTLY (emphasis added),"

As to McCarthy, she's covering her ass to avoid a Regnerus gay assault. Hence her defensiveness. Her very study contradicts her defense. Especially when she uses the term 'disease', when she knows it is a epi-genetic mistake.

But hey, you live in denial. Your response once again only exposes the degree once again.

Ain't that stupid as can be? And why does it stop at 9?

And how about the tough guy came here to wet its drawers and cry about "stalking" and name changing, and what name did it use?

Hey, I don't own it, but I'm not flattered either.

There's a whole industry that revolves around writing, Brainiac. Really, look it up.

You'll be pleased to know that there are homofascist writers too. Surely no self respecting polyp wrangler doesn't know of Hunter and Madsen.

Please allow Christ to deliver you. He knows the way to that secret place of rest. You dont know krapp alone. Listen for him to speak. His voice is beautiful, mysterious and not to be understood by mere mortals. Listen, children, listen. Stop thinking, whining, demanding, contradicting, beseaching, worrying, wishing...you have but to accept. Draw no needless breath of want. Be delivered.
