Homosexuality, could it be an anomaly in brain developement? Dr. Nick Riviera 15/02/05(Thu)04:59 No. 16039 ID: 8ec688 [Reply]

Hi guys, to begin I just want to make a couple of things clear.

- This thread is NOT about discrimination of homosexuals.
- This thread is NOT about considering homosexuality as disease.
- This thread is for pure scientific discussion.

Well, let me begin by telling you that I'm a med student and a embriology assistant at my university and I'm not a native english speaker, so you may encounter some grammatical errors in the text, but you'll get the point.
This whole dilemma began two weeks ago, when my brother told my family that he is gay. It was quite a shock, not because of the fact of him being gay but because he doesn't fit the gay man stereotype. He's a big dude, loves sports, bearded, the true definition of what some call "manly man". We accepted him, of course, and I have to say I've never seen him happier.
But after a few days I began to think, was he always gay? Did he decided to be gay? Why now? These questions started lingering in my mind. So I went to talk with my him about it.
He told me that he always has been, for as long as he remembers. Nothing has changed about him, except for his sexuality (for us, not for him haha). So that got me even MORE questions. Why are some gay men that are like extremely feminine? Why are some gay women extremely masculine? Why are gay guys like my brother who don't appear to be gay? Why do some gay people feel like they are traped inside the other genders body and need to get medical treatment (sex change surgery, hormone therapy) and why others don't?And why are there women like that too? Why many species, whose main goal is to survive (actually this is every species main goal, it's literally in our DNA), has certain individuals who are the contrary to this?
So I decided to tackle all these matters from a scientific point of view? What if during the development of the lymbic system (the part of the brain which controles emotions, memory, sexual desire, etc.) something doesn't go as it should?
So after I thought of this I told myself I couldn't be the first one to ask myself these questions. And of course I wasn't in a world with 7 billion people so thanks to the magical power of the internet I managed to get a cool text about the subject. I took some paragraphs which I thought were the most interesting, still I'm leaving the link (please don't take the text as discriminatory, it's merely scientific, it refers to homosexuality as an anomaly in brain developement because seen from a medical point of view it is, still doesn't mean it's moraly wrong).

"..the body and the brain first become sexually differentiated at about the third fetal month. Prior to this age, although genetically male or female, the fetus is physically/sexually-neutral. With the formation of the testes, and the secretion of testicular androgen, target ti Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

You make some very good points. I do not have a great understanding of anatomy or biology as a whole, but I have always believed that the reasons behind a person's personality was genetic (to a point) or atleast heavily affected by it. As you said, society also plays a role in the perception or movement on these actions relating to personality. If you are conditioned by the people and ideals around you to be something else, then you most likely are going to become that. Also pertaining to the environment around someone, and how it effects them: if a gay man for instance was only in contact or even only knew of women (besides himself), then this man would have little idea that he was gay. Perhaps he would not feel whole, or a little voice in the back of his head wanting something different, but the idea of wanting someone different would be little existent. I ocassionaly see posts on other imageboards following the idea "the internet made me gay". Perhaps these people always considered themselves straight (as heterosexual is the norm) and never saw gay porn because the mentality " I'm straight not gay, I don't watch gay porn", and once being exposed, they realised these suppresed or blinded tendencies.

We do know that gayness has a strong genetic component. Most theorize on the X chromosome while links have been found on 4 and 10. Trans are a different issue. See gayness is just a variant, trans is a genetic DISEASE. Its when you have a Y chromosome and the SRY gene is turned off. This creates masculine women (lesbians) or the SRY gene could be variated and produce little testosteron (i.e gay men and trans) that is why many gay men are feminine because they are just trans but barely and actualy gay men (like your bro) are normal.

Theoretically, how fucked up would I be if someone used a keylogger on my machine for a few month and leaked my bank account details (online password, PIN, security questions etc) on the Darkweb?

Not worried at all but I just wonder how good these computer hackers are at clearing accounts. Aren't there limits depending on the level of your account? They definitely can get around I.P alerts when accounts are accessed in different countries.

You'd probably lose some $ but you'd probably not notice it

These guys work on aggregates...they only take a little out of many accounts. Kind of like the old salami schemes back in the 60's and 70's

If losing $7 - $35 occasionally is a big deal to you then yes, you'd be uber screwed.

Hackers prefer to target businesses for large transactions, because they know few people have $100,000 lying around, while a huge number of businesses have access to that much credit.

Although we think our data is safe, we often give chunks of it away to third parties without the proper knowledge of how that information is stored and used. And we also don’t have a clue about the most important thing of all, how do companies keep our data safe. In most cases, it was discovered that our data isn’t as safe as we thought. Just look at Yahoo, and the company’s two massive data leaks; back in 2013 and, 2014 more than 1.5 billion user accounts were affected by all kinds of personal data being compromised. Users’ real names, passwords, email addresses, dates of birth, and telephone numbers were stolen, making the breach the biggest one in history.

Since false is in quotations i assume it refers to false as in untrue and not answer B, i cannot incorrectly answer the question because i dont have the answer key, therefore my choice is A because i assume i know the correct choice.

c=nu*lambda; nu=frequency and lambda=wavelength
The unit of frequency is cycles per second and that of wavelength is a displacement. Therefore, dimensional analysis provides you with displacement per second. Also, many electric and magnetic fields travel at speeds different from the speed of light, both faster and slower. Faster ones make it out of black holes, which ones depends on the escape velocity of black holes. The question you want to ask is how can we know theoretically that the matter eaten by the black hole conducts, and well, which we know from the electric and magnetic fields that escape from it near the axis of rotation.

quantum physics is stupid. waves, quants, photons. blah blah. it doesn't make any sense. physics in this regard is a giant bloated mess full of convenient mathematical tricks, but there is actually no real understanding, because no real observation can take place at this scope.

So, I have a question regarding physics and mathematics. Between the two, which would give me more "smart sounding shit." I don't mean learning it to brag, I mean stuff like pure mathematics sounding totally abstract to normal people. I just want to be in a different world basically. Kind of like induced autism? Or like a constant high but without drugs. Pic unrelated

Physics on account of exotic entities like black holes. Astrophysics is known as an exotic hard science, as is Cosmology. They just sound cool on the lonesome there of. Nuclear Physics and Particle Physics and Chemical Physics and Subatomic Physics just sound cool also. Muons, gluons, quarks, and the like also sound good. I do not know why, probably because I know more about it, but I believe Physics has more pizzazz than mathematics.
