MikemikeMike saidI was channel surfing the other night and saw a very religious family on a sow called 18 and counting. A family with 18 kids and one on the way-her poor uterus. Anyway, how many of their kids are gay/bi?? Gotta be at least 2 in the bunch. Poor kids.
There's a 5% chance that the first born male of a family is gay, but every male son after that has an incremental 5% greater chance of being gay. So, if half of her kids were male, her ninth child would have a 45% chance of being gay.. I'd say she actually likely has a few or more.
I've forgotten a lot of stats about homosexual behavior. The amount of males that have experimented with homosexual activity is much higher the people suspect. I want to say 30% of males. It was significantly higher among WW2 vets, something above 50%. Seems that males under stress seek to bond with their close friends to relieve anxiety and form closer protective bonds. Defensive mechanism possibly. The greeks took advantage of homosexual bonding by making an all gay couples elite squad, knowing that gay men protecting their partners were the fiercest opponents. There's a bunch of info out there about how much more gay our species is then it likes to admit.
Our species as a whole I believe is bisexual. We are more like the Bonobos monkeys then we are like chimps. On an interpersonal level, when we meet people, we're friendly and inviting. Look at most any primate culture that doesn't have some form of bisexual bonding and you'd realize that friendly male behavior doesn't happen. The more rigid the heterosexuality, the more competitive and violent interactions become.
That said, I personally don't feel much attraction to many of the females I see. Occasionally it does happen, but rarely.
