There are dozens of examples that are just as good.
Just as good, as in no better than what he said?

Lets be honest, you've realised there was nothing wrong with what he said, got over defensive and was unnecessarily harsh and now feel a bit silly.

Biological factors. In the book 'why men don't listen, and women can't read maps', a really excellent read. a theory is posited. I will quote a very interesting passage:

"6 to 8 weeks after conception, a male foetus receives a massive dose of male hormones called androgens which form the testes, then a second dose to alter the brain from a female format to a male one. If the foetus does not receive enough hormone at the appropriate time, one of two things may happen. First, a baby boy who is born with a brain structure that is more feminine than masculine, in other words, a boy who will most likely be gay by puberty. Secondly, a genetic boy may be born with a fully functioning female brain and a set of male testicles. they will be transgender"

That of course is not the entire chapter, far from it. But it pretty much explains what your question asked. I really recommend the book, it explains everything you may wish to know.

Just as good, as in it doesn't need to be the first example any time.

I think I was as harsh as was warranted. I don't "feel silly" from things I post on a forum :hahaha: I think you're taking me calling someone a **** a bit seriously, all I wanted was to have a bit of a debate to distract me from an assignment!

The debate you created was you looking like a **** and getting called out on it.
Each to their own I guess...

No one knows, but hopefully they make a pill to suppress it soon

By that I assume you've realised you were wrong and suddenly don't want this "debate". Glad I could make you see sense.

Why it's not harming anyone plus if there is environmental factors at hand, wouldn't that be a little hard to do?
