This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Yours, Mine and the Truth
Welcome to Both Sides Magazine Website:
"Proponents of the homosexual lifestyle argue that as race is merely a byproduct of inherited genes, so is homosexuality. The weakness of this position is that people of color reproduce and pass on the DNA that makes the skin brown; however, homosexuals cannot reproduce. If homosexuality is a genetic trait and homosexuals were true to their orientation, the trait would have virtually disappeared over the ages. Nature does not perpetuate homosexuality."

AAAAARRRGHHHH... we knew the religious right was stupid, hell bent on pushing their views in complete defiance of reality, but really, how hard is it to pick up a genetics textbook and read up on recessive traits?

Basic genetics:

If you have a dominant and a recessive character trait, that recessive trait will only be expressed in offspring that bear two copies of the recessive gene. If that recessive gene is present but paired with a dominant gene, then that person will not express that recessive trait but will only carry that gene. Should that carrier mate with another person who also carries the recessive gene then there will be a small chance (one in four) that they will produce an offspring that expresses the recessive phenotype.

Skin color (and sexual orientation) is a bit more complex than simple one gene/one trait genetics:

Skin color is determined by the amount and type of the pigment melanin in the skin. Melanin comes in two types: phaeomelanin (red to yellow) and eumelanin (dark brown to black). Both amount and type are determined by four to six genes which operate under incomplete dominance. One copy of each of those genes is inherited from the father and one from the mother. Each gene comes in several alleles, resulting in a great variety of different skin colors.

Most scientists agree that it is unlikely that there is a single 'gay gene' that determines something as complex as sexual orientation, and that it is more likely to be the result of a collection of factors, some of which may be genetic.

But who cares about facts when religion makes us feel special?
