If this is true; people can start raising whole families of rainbows and sell the straight kid to pay for groceries

But it's such a depressed market for straight kids. Maybe if you BOGO them.

Informal stats:

Me: Only child (unless my mother aborted a male fetus and never told me)
1st Partner: Second of four sons, all brothers were evidently straight (two committed suicide but apparently due to a bad drug trip and post-Vietnam stress, not to being in the closet).
2nd Partner: Younger of two sons.
3rd Partner: Two brothers, one a fraternal twin and one younger. The twin was mildly developmentally disabled and presumably straight; the younger one was profoundly disabled, sexual orientation unknown (this family had real issues).
4th Partner: Only son of mother, younger son of father (probably not applicable to this research)
Best Friend: Youngest of three sons. Youngest sibling.
Best Friend's Partner: Younger of Two Sons
Ex's (4th partner's) current husband: Youngest of 4 sons youngest of 8 siblings.

I think I've known very few gay men who were first sons (and not only children) but I guess it does happen.

I have 1 brother and 2 sisters, all younger than me and I'm the only gay one.

I was friends with a guy who had 3 brothers and no sisters. Three of the 4 brothers, including my friend, are gay.

This makes total sense. If one of the older brothers is gay, he molests the younger brothers and turns them queer. It ain't rocket science folks.

Forced and clueless reasoning .. if you can call it reasoning .. Most likely it's the behavior of the father and older brothers that nauseates the youngest one and does the trick .

Hey, LITTLE liar, first off, great false name. What new ones will you use tomorrow?

Second, I was the oldest and the only one who turned out gay. Shoots your ill informed opinion to hell. Mistaken and ill informed, as usual.

AS is his endless list of false names and cities.

I'm actually starting to think that there are very few REAL haters responding to Topix and it is all the work of some patient, but creepy little hater out there who spends all day on a hundred or so false accounts!

If we're going to assign blame then unfortunately it goes to heterosexuals.

Every gay and lesbian has heterosexual parents if 'the cause' is genetic.

Every gay and lesbian has heterosexual parents and a predominately heterosexually social structured society if 'the cause' is "nurture".
