    Hey guys, there is some confusion here. Some of these things are not genetic they are about our nurture and the choices we make. Its a bad idea to blame or congratulate our genes for too much.

    Oh and is there a gay gene? I thought the genetics of sexuality was very very complicated. At least that is what my molecular biologist friends tell me.
