Thread Name: BS: P.E. stops you being gay?
Subject: RE: BS: P.E. stops you being gay?
Guest-from Sanity, are you saying that the mother's moods, experiences, hormone swings, traumas or pleasures have a direct influence on the developing brain of the foetus, and therefore will produce character traits and even determine sexuality? If so, have any studies been done on identical twins, (who presumably are subject to identical influences in utero) and do they have identical personality traits after birth and in later life? Furthermore, are there examples of identical twin gay siblings? (This is all starting to sound horribly like a Mengele theory of eugenics. He apparently was most interested in twins, for equally sinister reasons.) In my experience of twins among my pupils, each pair of identical twins showed an amazing difference in their personalities. One was more timid, more withdrawn and more compliant etc while the other was invariably bolder, more confident and sometimes more naughty. I have to repeat that even if a child is 'born gay', it doesn't matter, and they can BE gay and marry etc as they wish. Whyever not? Perhaps the homophobics here are travelling down the road of 'identifying' gay foetuses in the womb and aborting (ie murdering) them to prevent the birth of (gasp!) yet another gay abomination. I DO hope NOT!
