if it was would think that the gay gene would have become very rare...seeing that it would have a hard time being passed down to the next generation......

Who gives a damn? It**Q**s a free country.

With that said, how complicated do you think this whole **QQ**gender**QQ** thing is, really?

Lemme give you an example.

I know a couple in California. Married, guy and a gal, same age range, nothing at all odd, right?

**Q**Cept for one thing. He took her last name. And in every other respect, **QQ**she wears the pants**QQ** and they both like it that way.

Most guys are mentally wired to be the **QQ**leadership**QQ** half of a relationship, to one degree or another. Likewise most gals are wired the other way, again with a significant range in how strong the effect is. But it**Q**s not universal. And when one partner is wired very **QQ**dominant**QQ** and the other very **QQ**submissive**QQ** (another set of terms for this) and things can get pretty damn kinky :).

But my point is this: how many **QQ**gays**QQ** are actually guys wired submissive, who find it easier to find a dominant gay guy than a dominant hetero (or bi?) gal? How many lesbians are in exactly the opposite boat?

And are these **QQ**dominance/submissive backwards**QQ** people (relative to their own genders) **QQ**choosing**QQ** to be gay/lesbian, or is it more important to them to scratch the **QQ**dominance/submission**QQ** itch than to be in hetero relationships?

Trust me, talk to gays and they talk very openly about gays being either mentally **QQ**top or bottom**QQ** (another term for this whole thing) while lesbians talk about **QQ**fems and butches**QQ**. So this is a huge part of what**Q**s going on, but still not anywhere near the whole story.

This whole thing is maybe related to but not totally synonymous with the whole **QQ**transgender**QQ** thing. That**Q**s yet ANOTHER whole drama.

Do any of y**Q**all really think you can make judgments about any of this?

I say hell no. Leave **Q**em alone. Sheesh.

From what I**Q**ve been told only 2% of all gays were born that way.

The other 98% were sucked into it...
