Some time or other in the past I made an observation regarding homosexuality and the claim that it is genetically inherited. It seemed/s to me that if it is genetic the tendency would be a decline in numbers over the centuries since the more it is purely practiced the fewer the offspring to pass on genes. Moreover, now that it is becoming acceptable in secular society, there is even less inclination by the homosexual community to maintain a heterosexual relationship to hide the homosexual. Thus, I argue that in a few decades we should see an even steeper decline in numbers if indeed it is genetic. I made this argument and received a response from a medical doctor that claimed I didn’t know what I was talking about. She said that genetics is such that there is a kind that I am not familiar with that explains why my simple observation does not fit reality. I have thought long and hard about this and cannot see not understand it. A problem exists in pursuing it with her, so I bring it before you and ask for help in understanding. I am no expert, but I have done a little more studying genetics than most; Huntingdon’s Disease, a genetic neural disorder has been a part of my family for generations, in fact my sister suffers from it. Perhaps, I am simply dense but it still makes sense to me that regardless of what kind of genetics may be involved, if those carrying the genes have no offspring, there will be fewer and fewer over time!
