wyrd thoughts: my other blog

"The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things...."

News and views about current affairs, religious freedom issues, and the fight against euthanasia. Also the latest about my cats, goats, sheep, geese and chickens, life in Menominee county, and whatever else is on my mind.

Biological Basis of Homosexuality in Sheep

An article of interest to those who wonder what science says about the nature of homosexuality.

While I personally believe that human homosexuality is biologically determined, I don't believe that this can be proved by animal studies because of the fact that humans are not animals.

On the other hand, having once owned an exclusively gay billy goat, I find the article of agricultural interest. Gay animals aren't much good as studs! (Though my gay goat had a nice, non-aggressive personality and would have been useful as a pack or cart goat had he lived longer.)
