    As the title says.

    I'm actually happy about this and I hope they can prove that it works the same way with humans because Im tired of hearing my friends saying that you can choose to be gay. I never thought we could and now we could be one step closer to end their stupidity.


    What do you think?

    I can't say I care, because I've always known I'm straight and never had an issue with sexual preference.

    1. Shooting you in the brain makes you dead. Doesn't mean death is always caused by being shot in the brain. Similarly, apparently killing off serotonin can change rat sexual preferences, doesn't mean sexual preferences are caused by serotonin.

    2. Rats did not become discriminately 'homosexual'. They were keen to have it off with both males and females.

    3. Rat sexual selection is largely pheremone based. Humans not very much so.

    4. Killing off the production of serotonin probably made them super horny (see #2) and willing to shag anything as opposed to strictly 'homosexual'. Looking at their results, while male/male shaggery went up, male/female was nearly at ceiling height before knockout, and hit ceiling height after knock-out.

    So.. Yeah. Sorry.

    I'm gay, and whilst it's not a choice, if a chemical is found to be the key, or perhaps, a gene it would be bad, before you know it, there will be anti-gay drugs or couples screening their children for gayness...

    But we could shoot up all our straight crushes with the drugs to make them gay. :sexface:

    If it is down to chemicals that means it can be treated and cured, huzzah another money making scheme for the big pharmaceutical companies!

    I can see the tv adverts already...


    Mom, Dad, I have something to say to you... I'm gay!

    *Gasp*

    You there! Stop, don't panic! Homosexuality can be cured. Take Prozac, it'll boost your child's serotonin levels making them straight once more!

    This advert was brought to you by the Eli Lily pharmaceutical company.

    I guess you didn't read all of it.

    "At this time therefore any potential links between serotonin and human sexual preferences must be considered somewhat tenuous."

    even so

    i wonder if gay people will become extinct someday

    Fail. You clearly haven't read it properly considering they state that there is no proven correlation between homosexuality and serotonin levels in humans.

    Stupid cow.
