I wonder what this researcher was smoking? Evidently his mother drank heavily while she was pregnant.

What caused all the homosexuality in the centuries BEFORE tobacco was introduced to Europe? I know there's a phrase that refers to the causality thing; I just can't recall it this morning. He may as well try to link every other incidence of birth to pollution or smoking or drinking. It is a ludicrous hypothesis and I'm embarrassed for him that he has put it forth.

I don't know how this would work. I can see an argument that likelihood of being transgender in physical male babies could have something to do with stresses during pregnancy as all fetuses basically start out as female and then the males ones change as the hormones kick in. But I don't see the connection with lesbianism or bisexuality.

The only true think you can say about women who smoke while pregnant is that they are selfish fuckwits and child abusers.

As for why children become pregnant during pregnancy, it's not the pregnancy of the gay child that matters, it's the pregnancy of the earlier children. For anyone who doubts that, go educate yourself on RH factors and what happens in multiple pregnancies. Women's bodies change every time they get pregnant.

Oh, they don't know what "trope" means? That's going to be another stumbling block, then.
Bwaaaaa haha!

Tropes are devices and conventions that a writer can reasonably rely on as being present in the audience members' minds and expectations

Here is the rock-bottom simplest approach:
.
A baby inherits either it's mother's sexual orientation; *OR* it's father's sexual orientation; *OR* a combination of both parent's sexual orientations

Speak for yourself! You can consider your same sex attraction as a defect, but I chose to consider it a part of my design.

He's just confused because he sees a birth defect every time his lover/mother drags out his baby pictures.

Wow, Freak from PA, I don't know who or what frucked you up to make you such an angry/bitter/obsessed little troll. Man, go seek some therapy because you are going to be the next gunman we read about taking lives at a movie complex, shopping mall, or restaurant.

You are the first poster that I've seen on these threads who has caught that one.

This is almost as funny as Oral Roberts(?) claim that watching Barney would make children gay.
