    What do I think? Uh, I think the billboard is shooting its own logic in the foot. If you have two identical twins where one grows up to be gay and the other doesn’t, particularly if they grew up in the same household (which most do), that’s a huge argument that “nurture” can’t trump “nature.” Does it mean our relatively rudimentary understanding of genetics can’t yet explain the difference between twins? Yup. Does it “prove” that sexual orientation is not an inborn trait? They wish.

  2. Andrew Brown says:

    There are identical twins who are of opposite sexualities, but it’s not as black & white as “nature vs. nurture”. There’s a bit of both.

    One possibility is that there is a threshold such that, similar to the way that frogs spontaneously change sex under the right conditions, humans can be of a different sexuality than those around them. Too many people in too small an area? More people end up gay to naturally curb population growth. True? No idea, but it was an interesting suggestion.

    No theory or hypothesis offers a complete picture. We’ll only figure out better models over time.

    OMG! They are basing their science on the “fact” that Monozygotic Twins are “genetically Identical” NO they are not!! Close, yes. Very close but not genetically identical. You guys busted them on the wrong thing. Correct their pseudo-science!!

    Former board member of PFOX and current “ex-gay” Christopher Doyle says Roux’s pictures are “irrelevant”……..tell that to his attorney. And if he does not have one yet…call Gloria Allred…….she will love this one!

What do you think?
