Another day another moral panic about SCIENCE

Let the Mystery Be?

Synopsis:
Homosexuality is held to be genetic. In fact that's somehow part of the non-libertarian gay rights argument.
But if they really pin it down, that means it can be eradicated, right?

OK. It is time I explained this gay thing once and for all.

You lot are into naughts and ones. Right?

Gay/notGay

WRONG!!!

Sexuality is continuous, non-linear and n-dimensional.

A "cure" is a meaningless concept. All that MIGHT be debated is a cuf-off level and that, dangerously, is political.

No, just stop.

Thank you.

If genetic, you can lessen the likelihood by encouraging it. Gay men no longer marry women for the sake of appearances. Thus, fewer gay babies!

Come the revolution, gender will be CRISPRed out of existence.

When the sentient machines wipe out mankind, there will be no need for gender.
