I'm visiting family and am on someone else's computer.

Just want to point out that 'genetic' and 'hereditary' or not synonymous. While everything thing that's hereditary is genetic, not everything that's genetic it hereditary. Homosexuality is just one of the kinds of things that can spontaneously occur in a person's code, that does not come from their parents.

What you're referring to is mutation. I'm not a geneticist, but I've never heard or read of homosexuality being a mutation. I may be mistaken, but without something to support that, I don't accept it.

I think there is a difference between a mutation and a natural individual genetic code. Mutations are more or less aberrations, whereas individual codes are the result of blending two genetic coded to create one. Kind of like blending the colors red and blue and coming up with green. A mutation would be blending red and blue and coming up with orange (or another unrelated and different color).

I'm concerned about this. I see a whole group of what used to be men doing 'sissy' stuff. Not pedicures, but how does a grown man carry a 9mm pistol and call himself 'armed'?

It is unlikely a mutation, because it does not carry any physical (phenotypical) markers. All efforts to link brain anatomy to sexual orientation have not gone anywhere. Certainly "feminine" behavior is not exclusive to gay people. The fact that homosexuality has taken over this thread only shows the current state of confusion. I could name a couple of co-workers with rather girly body language. Both are apparently straight. I am sure I know a couple more that I never guess to be gay, but they are. Genetics don't cut it, behavior oh maybe sometimes, bottom line is, we don't know.

Just a question. When did homosexuality become a genetic thing? Where's the proof in it? Has anyone ever managed to find a particular gene that causes this?

As for the genetic vs hereditary thing.

GENETIC - of or relating to genes or heredity.

GENE - (in informal use) a unit of heredity that is transferred from a parent to offspring and is held to determine some characteristic of the offspring.

HEREDITARY - passed or able to be passed from parent to child before birth
