Austrian geneticists engineer lesbian fruitfly

From the New York Times:

When the genetically altered fruit fly was released into the observation chamber, it did what these breeders par excellence tend to do. It pursued a waiting virgin female. It gently tapped the girl with its leg, played her a song (using wings as instruments) and, only then, dared to lick her - all part of standard fruit fly seduction.

The observing scientist looked with disbelief at the show, for the suitor in this case was not a male, but a female that researchers had artificially endowed with a single male-type gene.

That one gene, the researchers are announcing today in the journal Cell, is apparently by itself enough to create patterns of sexual behavior - a kind of master sexual gene that normally exists in two distinct male and female variants.

In a series of experiments, the researchers found that females given the male variant of the gene acted exactly like males in courtship, madly pursuing other females. Males that were artificially given the female version of the gene became more passive and turned their sexual attention to other males.

Wait for it...homosexual activists will be screeching that this is proof that homosexuality is genetic. Except that it took a team of scientists artificially manipulating the genes of these fruit flies in order to eventually get one female confused enough to hit on another female fruit fly. The article is packed with tons of nonsensical pseudo-science from activist researchers who pick the results, then rig their experiments to produce those results. All so they can claim that who a person chooses to have sex with...isn't a choice.

Of course these scientist have done the expensive way what the porn industry has been doing for decades -- only the pornographers simply offer two female porn stars money to pretend like they are aroused by each other.

Unfortunately, I think your exactly right that this will be hailed as a breakthrough in science and a victory for the homosexual agenda. This should be fun to watch...

[Must not make witty reply to “...fun to watch” comment...Must not make...]

This has as much to do with homosexuality being genetic as Miller/Urey experiment “proved” evolution.
