The Fruits of your mother’s loins

This Magazine Staff

The BBC reports: “Womb environment ‘makes men gay'”. According to a recent study, the number of biological older brothers a fellow has, the higher chance he has at being gay. So when if your worried if your kid throws funny, don’t stress unless he’s got fourteen older brothers born in constant succession of each other. Cause then it’s more than just a lack of co-ordination.
So in effect, does this mean God makes people gay? Or their mothers? Or which ever is less sacrilege?
The article further comments “It adds further weight to the argument that lesbian and gay people should be treated equally in society and not discriminated against for something that’s just as inherent as skin colour.”
Now, as logical and reasonable as that article sounds, be aware we are in a second dark age when science, fact and reasoning are completely suspended courtesy of this little thing called the Repulican union of Church and State. So while the reasonable and logical among us are heralding a new dawn of wide-spread acceptance of homosexuality as birthright as skin colour, the cynic in me thinks the Bush administration will not only continue efforts to outlaw gay marriage in the US, but now also black marriages.
