96. You're right
I was about to begin explaining it to the posters that asked but it isn't worth trying to explain something that can be seen as relatively subtle unless you actually have a bit of experience in the field to people who are looking to argue tooth and nail about it. Nothing is more frustrating to me when people manipulate and ignore scientific conclusions to fit a particular ideological point of view.

I hate to bring up yet another touchy question here on DU, but I've also noticed any scientific study that doesn't support the hypothesis that homosexuality is genetic, or chemical in nature and considers psychological origins is regarded with immediate and highly critical skepticism. While I suspect based off of my pool of knowledge that it is indeed genetic or chemical in origin I can't stand scientific skepticism based on normative values. The world is what it is, and we need to see it for that before change can be affected. Denying a scentific finding doesn't mean it isn't true.

Once again, thanks for the heads up.

For those that are inquisitive about the basics of biology I hold onto my textbook from the two intro courses I took just to make sure I remain familar with the basics. It's called "Biology" authored by Neil A. Campbell, and Jane B. Reece. I find it to be a relatively useful resource that gives the average guy a decent foundation in the basics of biology.
