Quote# 86236

[The poster basically argues that while homosexuality can be genetic, it cannot be in your DNA.]

I've studied biology. It can't be in DNA. It can be linked to GENETICS because there can be things linked in traits of either the mother or father, but a "gay gene" can NOT be encoded in your DNA. There is no such thing.

There you go. You solved it. Now I can sleep at night.

Let's not be so hard on this person. If the science course in the slow learners' track at her middle school covered biology, then technically, she has studied biology.

aptly named site, dontchathink?

This goes beyond intolerance and straight into 'idiot' territory.

Seriously, what the Hell?

"Actually, there is evidence that sexual orientation is determined by hormone levels a fetus is exposed to during prenatal development rather than any gene."

I would say that human sexuality is far too complex to attribute to a single metaphorical lightswitch, and that it can be affected by multiple factors, including genes, hormones, and life experiences. Possibly many others. I have never understood the human tendency to think that one answer necessarily rules out all others.

"I've studied biology."

Flunking out of class on your first test means that what you have studied was wrong, dumbshit.

It can't be in DNA. It can be linked to GENETICS

Um...if you'd studied ANY biology at all, you'd know that:

DNA AND GENETICS ARE THE SAME FUCKING THING!!

I'm guessing hollielovesyou believes that genetic information is passed from parent to offspring via an elaborate game of charades that takes place shortly after birth.

Just because you bought your degree doesn't mean that you actually know shit.

In my high school biology class, the teacher actually had to stop when talking about evolution and said she was legally required to mention creationism, and god etc. Who knows, with the increased attention to text books, they could teach some crazy crap now.

...so...like...mitochondrial DNA...from the mother but not in actual personal code...kind of thing...no, I can't pretend that's what you mean. Drat.

I wonder what biology thing hollie here believes he or she understands that would make this statement logical.

Was the day you studied biology an exciting one?

So it's not in the DNA but it is in the genes? If you had actually studied biology you would know that what you said is utter nonsense. It's like saying the problem isn't in the car but it is in the engine.

People are born with their sexuality. It just doesn't usually show up until around when their age gains another digit.

It's not genetics. Everyone's born bisexual.

You studied Biology? I think you might need to retake that particular course. Even year 8 (or 13 year old) students know DNA and genetics are linked.

Note that "I've studied biology" does not mean "I passed biology." Clearly, you can't have done.

Genetics specificaly applies to DNA, you dumbass.

I think poe. But just in case I would like to point out that I haven't studied biology since school, 20 odd years ago, I didn't do particularly well and I still know more about the subject than hollielovesyou.

Actually, if you take it as badly articulated, it's not entirely inaccurate.

"It can be linked to GENETICS because there can be things linked in traits of either the mother or father."

The father part is probably wrong, but perhaps the maternal grandfather - if the theory quoted by QuasiRodent is indeed a major contributor. The degree of hormone fade with aging might be a variable not unlike male pattern baldness, hereditary.

Maybe if I smash my head against a wall hard enough this will somehow not be idiotic and become correct.

Wait, nope, that'll never happen.
