mapping "the gay gene"

the gay gene and nearby gene markers

closeup of the gay geneOnce again I'm struck by the realization that I'm surrounded by attention-deficit disordered queens. MW-S (Michael William-Scott) isn't the first and probably won't be the last (in the past year I've met at least 3), but I'm convinced that the part of our genome that makes us gay is neighbored by the genes that make little baby gay weathermen and gay-D.D. queens. Nearby are the chromosome sequences that make people deaf (why are there so many deaf gays?), movie critics and fans of Madonna, Babs and Britney. My Gene Queen friend Matt may concur. Mark my words, one day they will find that the gay gene is near the A.D.D. and weather sense gene. My theory is that when and if the gay gene is turned 'on' and flipped in reverse (bottom) on the gene squence of our genome, accompanying gene sequences may be activated as well, or vice verse.

Illustrations are provided in Figures 1 and 2.

Somehow my Streisand genes were replaced with Sinead genes- but the effect is the same.

Hoochie Mama!... That is so obviously Chromosome 12!!! And the gene you've identified appears to be implicated in breast cancer. And the orientation of the chromosome illustration in terms of petit arm and long arm are arbitrary, so I wouldn't necessarily say it's a bottom.

I am impressed that you managed to match at least one A--T pair between Madonna and Streisand though. Kudos :)

All my Genetic material that makes the Dax is Geek.

I think the components of my so called "gay" gene is damaged by "Gay standards" of genetic identification. It contains large amounts of Megadeath/Metallica/Rammstein/Ozzy/Danzig as well as Deicide/TypeOnenegative/Misfits markers.

They "Style" markers also seem to be absent, being replaced with the "Must wear all black/goth" genes As well as double of the amounts of the dominate "geek" strains which appear to be in the number 42 range higher than the average.


I wonder if I should go to the Xavier School for Mutants ;-)

I'm so there, with that A.D.D. thing. Sorry, what were you saying?

BWAAAAA!!!!!
Dear God, you have mapped out what I've been saying for years. THE GAY WEATHERMAN GENE....Absolutely hysterical!

I knew I was born that way!! I will shout it from the highest hilltop...."I'M A GAY WEATHERMAN!"

I've always believed that there is a genetic connection between homosexuality, deafness, and left-handedness. Goes back to something I read on that topic ages ago in college, IIRC.
