    Hey guys!

    I am an identical Twin. RJ posted a message about gay twins and research!

    Me and my brother are both identical twins.

    Anyone else a twin?

    Or any twins you know? Are they both Gay also?

    I am curious as most of the questions are...

    1.) If I hit your brother...can he feel it...
    2.) If something is wrong...can your brother feel it?
    3.) Are both of you gay...in my house...yes!

    What has everyone else encountered?

    I'm a twin, but I have a twin sister. And you'd be surprised how many people ask us if we're identical. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? Use your brains, people.

    We grew up down the road from identical twin girls and the four of us were best friends growing up. One of them is gay and the other isn't.

    I'm a twin also! Not identical though. I have a sister. She is definitely straight, married and a mother!

    We are super tight though. Have been best friends for years. We do have special connection. We can speak without using words and there have defintely been times when each of us have felt the others pain.

    Maybe if they can't find a gay gene, maybe they'll have to settle on our souls being gay....

    But anyways, twins are hot! My first crush was on one non-identical twin. His brother was cute, but didn't have the same big shoulders like his bro.

    "According to their data, 52% (29/56) of monozygotic cotwins, 22% (12/54) of dizygotic cotwins, and 11% (6/57) of adoptive brothers were homosexual."

    I'm a triplet and though we aren't identical (fraternial) I seem to be the only one who is gay.

    Sometimes we finish each other's sentences off and can even predicit what the other will do. Sometimes I get a feeling something might be wrong when I'm not around. At the moment, it's just me and 2nd youngest because the 3rd died at a very young age. I was born a triplet but was demoted to twin status. I'm eldest and we're all 23 seconds apart.

    When I tell people that I'm a triplet they actually think I'm lying becuase it's just my brother and I and then they feel bad when one of us tells them the story about our other brother. My brother and I really aren't that close and are complete opposites in interests and obvious lifestyles but we manage a friendly brotherly love with one another as any other sibling would. LOL. Our parents thought it was cute giving us matching names. They have sick a sense of humor. LOL.

    My family has alot of twins and triplets and one quad. My father is a twin and my my has 2 twin sisters and 3 twin half brothers. Mom's mother is a triplet (identical). I have alot of twin cousins on my dad's side and we are the only fraternial ones. My mom's side has the quads (all girls) and they are hilarious. They love playing games with guys.

    Family reunions are a blast.

    On a diferent note. How would you feel if you knew you were a twin (or any child for that matter) and was seperated at birth in the hospitial?

    I am a fraternal twin. He is very much straight. I hated when people use to ask if my brother gets hurt can I feel it? I think they saw G.I. Joe (the cartoon) and remembered those twins that felt each others pain. I guess they figured we were the same.

    I have a twin sister who is straight. We were so much opposite when we were growing up (I had really light colored hair and hazel eyes--she had dark brown hair and eyes) that people thought one of us had to flunk a grade to be in the same class. icon_biggrin.gif

    It is funny, when I got into college, my friends thought we looked alike when I showed them her picture! It was the first time that anyone had seen an resemblance!!

    Wow, identical triplets that is quite rare. I knew identical female triplets in high school. They used to cut class and send a sibling instead. Imagine the possibilities for mischief.

    I'm a twin too, and my twin is straight. We are fraternal. Of course we can finish each others sentences and seem to know what the other is thinking, etc. I think that comes from having many shared life experiences. Fortunately, my parents allowed my brother and I to be ourselves growing up. We've each charted different courses with the things we enjoy doing. My brother and I aren't as close as we had been growing up. His wife belongs to a conservative evangelical church and makes for some interesting social situations. I've known her my whole life, so we have a lot of respect for each other even though we don't see eye to eye.

    There is also some interesting research out there about families with large numbers of boys. That the younger ones are more likely to be gay. It's been a while since I've seen the data....Although the mechanism is unknown, it is thought that there is some sort of maternal immune response to the presence of the Y-chromosomsome and this increases with increased male pregnancies.

    I dated a identical twin where his brother was straight, but his girlfriend was one of those girls that gets off on gay sex...an interesting situation to say the least! icon_neutral.gif

    I also know a set of lesbian twins that are identical and a identical triplet girls where two were lesbian and one straight (somehow).
