Bird f*cker! Lmao
Hey, I'm personally offended by this comment, you take that back.
Hey I'm not judging, whatever turns you on! Hahaha
Hey, just don't let it "ruffle your feathers"!!
Just don't bring one home.
Too much sap...
"Don't ask, don't tell" ?
But buggery on the high seas cannot be tolerated!
Damn, how this thread got derailed....
Science disagrees with you, "Brain scans provide evidence that sexual orientation is biological" -> https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/study-says-brains-of-gay/
To even more so get this thread off topic...
Zippy, Without killing the damn things, how can I get rid of them???!!! HOA fixed the gable vents on my condo and because I'm on the top floor, the pigeons moved onto my deck and are sh!tting all over everything!!!
Science is not always right. Look at the source. They are desperate to prove something biological is the reason. The study is small, and observational only--proves nothing. It harkens back to the days of "Lombrosian Theory" for criminals, i.e., that those with heavy brows are more inclined to be criminals. Some "scientists", Swedish or otherwise, are just plain morons.
Also, if you want to offer a challenge to science people, NEVER use Scientific American as a source; it is one grade better than toilet paper as proof for anything. It is like Readers Digest.
Science once believed in leaches and lobotomies, and many colorful notions that don't fit the dignity of this forum...the Bell Curve comes immediately to mind. As well, many things regarded as scientific fact today will be dismissed in short order.
But FWIW, I also believe that being gay is at least partially genetic, and may be triggered by upbringing and other life events.
Honestly I don't know of any other alternative. They will eventually move on if consistently scared off. How to do that I don't know but. It is a training method to keep flyers from landing on house roofs instead of their loft.
I realize that no source of information on this planet, no matter how credible, will sway your opinion Barry, but still it is interesting. They have long known that the male and female brains have distinct differences, and to now see those same differences in the brain of a homosexual male is intriguing to say the least.
btw, the way the source is the Stockholm Brain Institute in Sweden, not that that matters.
goobers, the makeup company doesn't care about anyone's sexuality, creed, color, ethnicity, whatever; they like most profiteers care about the money...and they just grew their consumer base. Thank the Lord that the surf industry doesn't market it's "lifestyle" to mass audiences for profit....oh wait.
Sweden fine; but the article is an interpretation by a non science journalism major, who has not a clue.
The scandinavian countries have been struggling to find a reason for homosexuality for decades; apparently, many there have chosen that lifestyle....
I'm with you... I know the guy is a newb with no intro but it was an interesting article
Speaking of science...anyone ever see that pot documentary? I forget the name. Oh i remember. It's called the union. Anyway.....
Everyone thinks pot kills brain cells. Why? Because a "scientific study" proved it. Scientist was supposed to give monkeys 3 joints worth of smoke through a mask, x times a day for x days. I forget the exact numbers. But the shortened the study by increasing the amount of smoke ingested in one sitting. Let's say 5 joints worth of smoke all at once. With no oxygen. Well what happens when oxygen is cut off from the brain...brain cells die. So the point is, this scientific study "proved" somthing but anyone with a high school education who looks at the way the study was performed could point out the flaws.
I bring this up not to sway the conversation from gays to pot. But to bring the point up that people tend to trust "scientific" studies without ever really looking into how the study was performed. Everyone has an agenda and you can't just take someones word because it's "scientific". Got to look into things yourself
Gender is determined by chromosomes..So would it be possible that sexual preference could be influenced by hormones..ie excess or insufficient amounts of testosterone caused by an "abnormal" endocrine system... Look up the symptoms of low testosterone in men..and excess testosterone in women...kinda interesting...bassmon is right about the scientific label btw. Any study can be biased to an extent.
