The More the Merrier


There is a new study that claims that with every older brother a boy has, it increases the likelihood of the boy being gay by 33%. And a boy with 11 older brothers would have a 50/50 chance of being gay. This study is leading scientists to hypothesize that something must remain in the womb after every time a male son is born to change the chemical conditions in the womb for future male siblings, affecting their sexual preference. Interesting. That is not the same hypothesis that I quickly come to.

Statistics say that 10% of the population is homosexual. If this is true then having one gay male out of 12 would be normal would it not?

yeah, i've heard stats say 2% too. But, as we concluded a few days ago, we can't believe anything any more, so the quest for objective thinking is out the window.
