Serendip's forums sometimes get longer than what can conveniently be accessed and displayed. They are, at the same time, in their entirety an important part of what Serendip has become at any given time (and, of course, particular contributions may well be of lasting significance). To try to balance needs for easy display and those of continuous and permanent record, only this year's forum comments are
displayed on this page while earlier comments are preserved elsewhere. To go to the forum for another year, click on the year below.

Heard of a study done regarding this issue, but can't seem to find it? Anyone know of it. I'd appreciate any leads. Thanks.

I was searching the net and happened upon a very dated report regarding homosexuals and genetics on Serendip. The year is listed as 1997. However, here in 2005 (two years after the 2003 completion of the Human Genome Project), Geneticists have concluded there is no "gay gene", as some still claim.
If you would follow the link to a fascinating article penned by three scientists, you will receive a very fascinating education on the history of this compelling, and often confusing, topic.
Just cut, paste and enjoy. Take care.

I read this interesting article.
I wondered what is wrong with homosexual behavior, regardless of whether it is genetic. I also wondered whether the same behavior by heterosexuals is equally to be avoided.
Homosexuals kiss each other, for example. Is it wrong for members of the same gender to kiss each other? Or is it only when specific groups of people kiss that the action becomes wrong?
It's a little confusing to me.
