UCLA’s Study on ‘Gay Gene’

A highly respected study done at UCLA, counters the LBGT communities assertion that “gays are born that way, and there is a gay gene”.  

The UCLA study studied used scientific method, so as to not make the study about opinion or psychology.  Dr. Peter Vilain, head of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA  uses an algorithm covering epigenetic markers from several genomic sites of 37 sets of identical male twins to predict homosexuality in males.

The outcome, there is no genetic marker for a “gay gene”.  Moreover, the issues children go through during their tender years (1-7), their behavior should not be taken as “my son is gay if he is displaying more effeminate qualities”.  The politically correctness is to over react to such displays and to predict your child as gay is harmful.  These are the years children work out their nature, and the hormones are not developed, as they develop in puberty (12-16).

The study suggests environmental factors, and many experts commenting on this outcome, return to the nature vs. nurture argument.  Its becoming clear there is no gay gene.
