Males with a genetic makeup associated with high levels of SSB (same sex sexual behavior) produced female offspring with higher rates of reproduction, or fecundity. This suggests that genes associated with SSB could be persisting in the population because they actually confer a fitness advantage in females, despite being reproductively harmful to males.

It's the family tree. Mine for example, my brother 'causes' an increase in fertility because of the gene. He effectively makes up for my not breeding.
It doesn't make him homosexual.
In the extended family tree there would be several "over achievers" that, overall, would promote reproduction.
My parents had 8 children. My mom's mom had 15, dad's mom had 4. You'd have to go back several generations.
Number of children, do you come from a Mormon family? They have more children so do they tend to increase the amount of gay genes in their families? Your profile lists Palm Springs. Palm Springs was all gay mormons when I was there, the straight mormons were with their wives wearing long skirts at Stater Brothers market and in Cabazon / Gas Station. There were very few Gays who were gentiles in the city. It was very interesting to see that Gay Mormons are coming out and seem to move to Palm Springs in large numbers. There are hardly any Mormons where I was born / raised way up north.
When "Science" goes the Homophobes' waySEE? WE TOLD YOU ALL! WE STR8S ARE BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED! TO HELL WITH THOSE DARN GAYS! PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME! AND GIVE ME A DONATION!
When "Science" doesn't go their wayBAH! IT'S SCIENCE! DISREGARD ANYTHING THOSE CRAZY LIBRUHLS SAY! AND GIVE ME A DONATION!

I don't know a single Mormon! (One acquaintance's BF is Mormon, but I don't know him).
BTW I'm Catholic. You jump to conclusions without evidence.
TomSOCAL saidtimmm55 saidTom, stop derailing topics!
Sir, you continue to ask me for info about the LDS control of Palm Springs, and I try to answer your questions and concerns in the best way that I can. I didn't derail any topic. Just answering your questions and concerns.
I simply asked you if you were LDS given what you said about yourself. I also said that perhaps, there would be a higher incidence of gay genes in LDS Families due to larger numbers of children. So, it is interesting that they are the first major worldwide denomination to acknowledge that people are born - gay. The very first. Nobody else has stated this.
