Being Gay Not a Choice: Science Contradicts Ben Carson

The article is larger than just the CDN bit, but I found this quote interesting. Still, there is a lot of research to go to explain sexual orientation but one thing is very clear - it's not a choice. It's who you are. Get over it and move on people.

How such gay genes get passed down from generation to generation has puzzled scientists, given that gay couples cannot reproduce. One study found that gay men are biologically predisposed to help care for their nieces and nephews. Essentially, these gay uncles are helping their relatives to reproduce. “Kin therefore pass on more of the genes which they would share with their homosexual relatives,” said evolutionary psychologist Paul Vasey of the University of Lethbridge in Canada, in a past Live Science article.
