Again, how can it be fair to say that gays can marry, but a man and a boy can not.

Ok.,..so it is a religious issue? What about people who go to a justice of the peace? Are they married or just have civil unions? NO!!!!!!! They are considered married. How? When they didn't get married in a religion or even close to one. Explain that Jethro!!!! You are giving away your intelligence just by your name. If you don't know what I'm talking about....watch the beverly hillbillies!!!!!

They deserve that in my opinion.
While the authors interpreted their findings as evidence for a genetic basis for homosexuality, we think that the data in fact provide strong evidence for the influence of the environment.
... the interaction of genes and environment is much more complicated than the simple "violence genes" and intelligence genes" touted in the popular press.The same data that show the effects of genes, also point to the enormous influence of nongenetic factors.
"Absolutely not. From twin studies, we already know that half or more of the variability in sexual orientation is not inherited. Our studies try to pinpoint the genetic factors...not negate the psychosocial factors."
...the question of the appropriate significance level to apply to a nonMendelian trait such as sexual orientation is problematic.

I do not have enough information to say its a fact one way or another but I can say that a gay friend of mine told me he knew as a child he was different, that he felt strange around boys before he even knew ANYTHING about sex. And was attracted to the as soon as puberty hit.
I can only say that if the shoe was on the other foot and homosexuality was "normal" and hetrosexuality was
"Queer" that it wouldnt matter to me I would still like women and would not give a # what others thought.
Would you be willing to have sex with men just because society said this was right and male/female sex was wrong?
What I am trying to say is if I would # who I want too and to hell with what society thought why should I not allow him the same privelage?
And by who I want I mean overage and willing
i just wanted to point out that if homosexuality was normal in society, we would have no society, as the human race would have died out shortly after this trend started
