Research on Sexual Orientation

A recent study has found evidence that homosexuality is linked to genetics. Though the funding for this study is still a question, such studies can be avoided in the first place for the following reasons:

- ‘Sponsored Studies’ in future might link pedophilia, zoophilia and incest to genetics too. In that case, are we ready to accept them?

- Some parents might press the abortion button, if they come to know about the possible sexual preference of the feotus?

- And in the worst case lobbying groups might press for population increase (through human cloning & genetic modification) of ‘differently inclined’ to counter the ‘genuine’ offensive of heterosexuals. Will this lead us to a war between these two groups?
Hope the scientific community understand the gravity of this problem and stay away from such studies.

Imagine what this would do to the fashion world. And theater!

In other news, I was at a training by the state of Colorado a few weeks ago and we were talking about pedophilia and it turns out it actually might be a sexual preference. I found this very upsetting. Although its still possible to draw a clear line in my mind between acceptable and not in this case. Homosexuality should be acceptable since a person has no control over it AND it is consensual between two (at least hopefully) competent adults. Pedophilia, while a person may have this as a sexual preference they have no control over, hurts children and does not occur on a level playing field.
Probably way more than you wanted in a comment. Sorry, I'm good at that.
