If you like a diet of 'science-lite' read this news story. The quality, or lack thereof, of this article is most articulated here, quoting:
"Which raises the evolutionary question of why men and women who are exclusive gay and lesbian exist. One answer is that exclusive gays and lesbians are a relatively new creation: the concept of exclusive homosexuality barely existed before modernity; even a century ago, most same-sex-attracted men and women got married and had kids."
The "one answer" suggested above is not even an answer to the question of "why." And to suggest that homosexuality "barely existed before modernity" is laughable.
This coming out of a repected news source? Geeesh. Time should be ashamed.
