Genetics Of Being Gay (Scientifically.)

Gay Genetics

Now we are going to get scientific, I know boring part but it will help you to understand a bit better why we are gay and how we came about in the genetic process.

Genes are chromosomes which is what makes us male or female.

a male chromosome is XY

and a female chromosome is XX

Now with a straight man and straight woman their is a balance of XY and XX chromosomes I don’t know how many as I am not a scientist, but there is quite a lot.

However a gay man has one more XX female chromosome than that of the straight man and

a gay woman has one more XY male chromosome than the straight woman.

That is the only difference between gay people and the straight people we homosexuals have one more gene than the heterosexuals nothing else, we don’t have two heads or two hearts or any other extra features that people may say of with their nonsense stories that they stupidly believe.

So you see its nobodies fault its just genetics.

I try not to analyze the genetics of it all any more, it wore me out figuring it out. But you are right, it is no one's fault. It's just our fault for not accepting it in the first place. Lol! Thank you for an interesting hub.

That isn't how genetics works ok. each person has either xy or xx. end of story.

Matt is right.

"Now with a straight man and straight woman there is a balance of XY and XX chromosomes I don’t know how many as I am not a scientist, but there is quite a lot." quite a lot? :| I'm not a scientist either but these are simple things I learnt at school.

Each person has 23 pairs of chromosomes (46 chromosomes in total, except in cases of conditions like Down syndrome, for example), of which 1 is the sexual pair. Women have 2 X chromosomes (XX) and men have 1 X chromosome and 1 Y chromosome (XY).

Even so, due to a more complex and not so well known process called crossing-over that occurs during meiosis, a woman's sexual pair of chromossomes can be XY and a man's can be XX. Whether that is the reason for homosexuality or not I have no idea though.

where did you get your info from. It seems to me you would be talking only of feminine men and butch women. What about gay men that exude no feminine qualities. What about bisexuals. I don't think it is that simple. I tghink most people have bi thoughts.

Where as I'm not trying to be rude or homophobic humans with an additional "X" or "Y" chromosome are called "supermales" or "superfemales". These people experience relatively little difference from the norm. It is theorized that homosexuals have opposite sex brains. A man have been exposed to large levels of estrogen in the womb and developed a female brain despite his obvious biological sex and vice versa. Also works with transexuality or androgyny. Forgive me if I'm slightly mistaken, but this is what I remember from development psychology.

Callum - science isn't boring! You've been watching too many hair dye adverts!

As a scientist I am intensely interested to find out exactly what the biology is behind being born gay - is it neural pathways, different amino acid order in the genes, hormonal release in the womb or what? I'm a chemist so I apologise if the previous biological phrases don't make sense.

Thanks Ian I actually regret writing this one as it caused so much trouble but one cant help wondering if there is more to it than just a gene? :)

We just don't know what the biological cause is yet - but definitely biological it is.

gays are not born this way and is not from god. It is an abomination in gods eyes and all gays will go to hell if they do not return from their filthy ways.

Funny how you say that and hide behind a screen though I would doubt you would dare say it to some ones face :)

It is a biological fact!

Given a free choice in this society, would people CHOOSE to be gay?

Louis please google and read 'A Letter to Dr Laura Schlesinger' just incase you thought you were following the bibles every word. I think you will find you are not only a hypercrit but also a complete and utter asshole.

Gay men DO NOT have an additional X chromosome and lesbian women DO NOT have an extra Y chromosome. Genetic conditions do exist in which some males are XYY and some females XXY but such conditions have NOTHING to do with sexual orientation.
