    This is an interesting article that my friend just sent me: http://www.medicaldaily.com/news/20120613/10287/homosexuality-gene-mother-reproduction-evolution.htm


    "The team found that the gene appeared to make women more fertile, have fewer gynecological disorders and fewer pregnancy complications. The findings also suggest that gene led to women who were funnier, happier, more extroverted and more relaxed, leading them to have fewer family problems and social anxieties."

    This basically is saying that women who carry the "gay gene" are more attractive to the opposite sex, are more fertile, and hence have more sex. So nature wants the world to have more gays?

    Just thought it was interesting and wanted to pass it on.

    "However, after analyzing the personal characteristics of 161 female maternal relatives of homosexual and heterosexual men, researchers changed their hypothesis and suggested that rather than making the women more attracted to men and therefore more promiscuous, the "gay man gene" appears to make female inheritors more attractive to men.

    "High fecundity, that means having more babies, is not about pleasure in sex, nor is it about promiscuity. The androphilic pattern that we found is about females who increase their reproductive value to attract the best males," Camperio Ciani told Life's Little Mysteries."

    I wonder how the men know the women are more fertile in the first place.

    I think they can do blood panel tests to measure the levels of estrogen and progesterone in their body. There are also telltale signs on their face like flushed cheeks, etc.

    Hahahahaha! Not the researchers!

    I meant the men that are supposed to be more attracted to the women because they are more fertile. How do the men know that the women have increased reproductive values in the first place? It seems the men would only learn about a woman's fecundity AFTER he had been attracted to her.

    Ahh well I saw a documentary once that said females will start to give off cues at a certain time of the month (when they hormones are at their peak) that they are fertile without even knowing it and this will also attract more men. So basically men will be attracted to more 'fertile' women, though if you asked they wouldn't say that was the reason. It's all subconscious and driven by instinct/hormones.
