    Sexuality is a gender trait, biological in origin. You cannot discriminate based upon gender.
    So, if we can prove that homosexuality is biological, it seems we should be able to make a case for equal protection under existing amendments.
    What do you guys think?

    The science as I understand:
    So as early as three weeks into a pregnancy, the hormones in a woman's uterus lays down the basic framework of the brain, the reptilian part that controls base function and instincts. Some combination of the mother's genes, experiences and the child's genes sets a hormonal environment. In gay males, this early environment is likely deprived of testosterone, causing this base structure to grow female characteristics, the attraction to males. Some time during this process, the uterus starts producing testosterone. The presence of testosterone causes the fetus to grow to maturity as male, even though that based structure has female traits. The fact is, our reptilian brain is wired female. This is why we are just one of the possible expressions of gender.

    This is supported by evidence of many species decedent of reptiles exhibiting homosexual behavior (everything from birds to sheep).

    What I'm saying here is that people may have an existing legal basis for suing when discriminated against for housing or employment based on their sexuality.
