I think that you must be mistaken. Epi markers is a valid term, used by scientists.<quoted text>
Listen up, wannabe scientist. You are not smart enough or qualified to translate scientific theory, that’s right I said THEORY, as fact. Not to mention, in all I’ve read about the “epi-markers”(a term made up by you) the word mistake is never mentioned. Scientific research is meant to discover and understand, not judge. Why do you continually misrepresent and twist the research? You continually accuse people of putting a twirl on things, but, you’re the biggest twirler of them all.
Also, Mark Regnerus is a puppet for anti-equality hate groups, not an independent researcher. His research has not been peer reviewed or authenticated. Besides, he’s made clear his prejudices toward Gay Americans, so how could he conduct an unbiased study?
You’re looking for a logical reason for your hate, but, it’s your hate that clouds your objectivity. You can’t find any logical reason/research that offers any valid argument against full marriage equality for Gay Americans so you twist (and twirl as you so often like to say) the information to support your less than honorable opinion.
The rest of your post is utter nonsense and not worthy of a response.
"Epigenetics are defined as heritable alterations in gene expression that are not mediated by changes in the DNA sequence, and aberrant DNA methylation is one of the most extensively studied deregulated epigenetic mechanisms."
"Sergey Gavrilets, study co-author and associate director for scientific activities at the NIMBioS, said the transmission of sex-specific epi-marks between generations “is the most plausible evolutionary mechanism of the phenomenon of human homosexuality.”
In a press release, NIMBioS explains:
“While genes hold the instructions, epi-marks direct how those instructions are carried out – when, where and how much a gene is expressed during development. Epi-marks are usually produced anew each generation, but recent evidence demonstrates that they sometimes carry over between generations.”
This usually happens in response to spikes in testosterone — sex-specific epi-marks formed in early fetal development activate to protect the fetus from the testosterone surge. Otherwise, the high testosterone could cause female fetuses to ‘masculinze’ or vice versa for male fetuses.
Different epi-marks protect different sex traits from being masculinized or feminized, NIMBioS explains; some affect the genitals, others affect sexual identity and others affect sexual preference. But when epi-marks are transmitted from fathers to daughters or mothers to sons,“they may cause reversed effects, such as the feminization of some traits in sons, such as sexual preference, and similarly a partial masculinization of daughters.”
Just to throw in a couple...
