Again you miss what I am saying. If gays are only with the same sex there is 0% chance their genes get passed on. That is all I was saying.
Artificial fertility.

When gay couples **do** have babies-- what are the **odds** that the kids turn out to be gay?

Do you know?

(hint: they are **exactly** the same odds as for straight couples...)

Explained already. Some genes are advantageous if you inherit a single copy but deadly if you inherit two. A single sickle cell gene confers malarial resistance and a single tay sachs is assiciated with high intelligence

IF there is a gay gene it might be working in a similar way.
More and more it appears to be an epigenetic phenomena during pre-natal development.

In other words, multiple and complex interactions at work.

Get over it. They can't reproduce so they cant reign. You are just a paranoid bigot.
He is.... I agree.

But I suspect he is also a latent homosexual himself, and until he deals with **that**, he won't be able to get over it.

... or himself, for that matter...

What would be the beneficiary trait of more people being born gay? Now as I told you I have several gay friends, both male and female. I have two female cousins in my family line that are lesbian (not with each other, both like girls). I work with several (even so you called me a bigot when I told you that) point being evolution is all about evolving and passing on the genes to ensure survival. Gay people can not pass on their genes, so over time the will be less and less and become extinct. Survival of the fittest by natural selection is all about passing on the genes to insure survival of the species. As I said what they do is not my business and it does not affect me what they do. But two males or two females cannot pass on their genes. If a male and his sister are the only two children and are both gay and they won't pass on their genes by reproducing and the line stops with them.
You are making zero sense with all the contradictions in that comment.

Actually, homosexuality is quite common in birds. In the Psitticine (parrot) family, stable same-sex pairings sometimes occur even when opposite sex mates are available.

Thanks for all your "special attention" to my posts.

It means so much for you to stalk me like this.

You claim to be so moral yet you insist on telling lies.
I guess you'd be OK with people refusing to do business with Christians just as they did with Jews in Nazi Germany.
After all it's their "artistic freedom" and her use of religious discrimination that matters more to you than the law or what is moral and just.
I think it should be a person's right not to be forced to do something that they find offensive. There are nurses that are pro-life that find elective abortion offensive; I suppose you believe they should be forced to participate in that procedure just because they are health care workers and you like to inflict your will over theirs?

How hard is it for someone to call one more number to find a photographer that has no problem watching same sex couples kiss at a social function?

You are an idiot. You can't keep me from visiting a thread by shouting "Stalker" at me, loser.

BTW, my comments were NOT removed you idiot, but then again, reality never was your strong suit. The mods know you're crazy, hysterical blindness...and all THAT entails. You should see a doctor about that.

Your threats and infantile machinations may work on the faint of heart but wimps like you don't scare me.

Bob let me ask you a question. Now by being born gay would that be considered a negative mutation in evolution being it will likely result in them not having offspring, which likely means their genes will not be passed on?
Not being a butt, just asking a question.
People who participate in same-sex sex do pass their genes in to the future; they're just not passing on a "gay" gene because there isn't one.

I don't know of very many people who've done same-sex sex that haven't had any kids.

More to the point?**sexual identity** requires more than one gene, you ignorant and 100% uneducated nonentity.
Prove there's a gay gene AND that it would take more than one.

And, NO, I won't hold my breath waiting for it.

Hi nano.

I also doubt there is a "gay gene". However there is a lot of research suggesting a link between genetics and sexual orientation.

Really? I know a lot. Several have gotten around this by adoption and other methods.

True, but they tend to come out at a younger age when they have 2 gay parents.
