Unreleased Xq28 Gene Study Repeats Unproven Theory

                           New Genetic Study Repeats Old Unproven Theory

We want to jump on this new junk science article right away because we’ve been down the Xq28 road before and this unreleased study managed to suspiciously get a Valentine’s Day news release without peer review. We’ve excerpted and highlighted the laughable holes for you. The attempt to pass this off as anything new or valid in a Valentine’s Day news release is insipid politics. According to The Guardian:

“A region of the X chromosome called Xq28 had some impact on men’s sexual behaviour – though scientists have no idea which of the many genes in the region are involved, nor how many lie elsewhere in the genome. Another stretch of DNA on chromosome 8 also played a role in male sexual orientation – though again the precise mechanism is unclear.”

Gene

Researchers have “speculated” in the past that genes linked to homosexuality in men “may” have survived evolution because they happened to make women who carried them more fertile. This “may” be the case for genes in the Xq28 region, as the X chromosome is passed down to men exclusively from their mothers.

“The work has yet to be published…”

…the authors found that [only] 33 out of 40 gay brothers inherited similar genetic markers…

The gene or genes in the Xq28 region that influence sexual orientation have a limited and variable impact. Not all of the gay men in Bailey’s study inherited the same Xq28 region. The genes were neither sufficient, nor necessary, to make any of the men gay.

The flawed thinking behind a genetic test for sexual orientation is clear from studies of twins, which show that the identical twin of a gay man, who carries an exact replica of his brother’s DNA, is more likely to be heterosexual than homosexual. That means even a perfect genetic test that picked up every gene linked to sexual orientation would still be less effective than flipping a coin.

However, the authors do not know where these genetic factors are located in the genome, nor do they address homosexuality in women:

“We found evidence for two sets [of genes] that affect whether a man is gay or straight. But it is not completely determinative; there are certainly other environmental factors involved.”

I guess, women must simply be of some other species or don’t have genes.

Lesbian Feminist Camille Paglia: “Sexual Orientation is Fluid and Can Change”

Camille-Paglia-01.jpgLesbian feminist and university professor Camille Paglia was recently a guest on the Dennis Prager show. I have included a brief discourse of one of her segments that was interesting, especially in light of the fact that she is a self-identified lesbian. Her analysis on the current trend of psychology, which she says is being destroyed by politics, is priceless. Below the quote is a link to listen to the entire interview.

“Every single gay person I know has some sort of drama going on, back in childhood. Something was happening that we’re not allowed to ask about anymore . . . I can see patterns that are similar in my background to that of other women I know who are lesbians, but the biggest patterns are in gay men. Every single gay man I know had a particular pattern where for whatever reason, he was closer to his mother than to his father, and there was some sort of distance between the mother and the father, so that she looked to her son as her real equal or friend, as the real companion of her soul. Sometimes these women were discreet and dignified. Other times, they were very theatrical and in a sense they drafted their son into their own drama. But now, you are not allowed to ask any questions about the childhood of gay people anymore. It’s called ‘homophobic’. The entire psychology establishment has shut itself down, politically . . . and also, Freud was kicked out by early feminism in the late 60s and early 70s. So all the sophistication of analysis that I knew in my college years when I went to the state university of New York – there were a group of radical young Jewish students from the New York area – they were so psychologically sophisticated in being able to analyze the family background. It’s all gone, that entire discourse is gone. Everything is political now. Families are bankrupting themselves, sending their kids to the elite schools to learn a political style of analysis (that says) ‘every single thing in the human person has been formed by some external force upon us, we are oppressed, it’s being inscribed on us’. It’s really sick. It’s a sick and stupid way of looking at human psychology . . . we are in a period now of psychological stupidity.”
