Is Your DNA Gay?

Is there a link between sexual orientation, with something that's inborn? Something that clearly enviroment, or personal choice, have nothing to do with? It's the "nature versus nurture" question - do people choose their sexuality, or is "gayness" determined by their DNA? Michael Jackson was right. You have to look at "the man in the mirror". Well, you kinda have to look at two mirrors together - aiming carefully to get a good look at the top of your noggin.

Richard Lippa, a professor of psychology at California State University at Fullerton, collects photos of hair whorls. I'll save you the trouble of looking it up; hair whorls are circular swirl hair patterns most people have at the top of their heads. Lippa insists only about 10 percent of the general population have whorls that rotate counter-clockwise, but over 20 percent of gay men have counter-clockwise whorls.

Lippa says, "You're born with either a clockwise or a counter-clockwise hair whorl. It's fixed, it's biologically determined. No one's going to argue that your hair whorl is influenced by learning or culture." His theory - you can't choose your whorl, and you can't choose your sexuality, either.

So dude; you can't help it if you're gay! It's genetic! Somehow your DNA strands crossed, and where I see Halle Berry, you see Danny Divito. And, while unsure of your own sexuality in your formative years - your barber knew all along you would grow up dreaming about some guy's asshole!

Is your DNA gay? Only your hairdresser knows for sure. Ask your stylist which way your whorl whirls. Here's a little ditty to help you remember; "Clockwise is RIGHT, counter-clockwise is RI-YAN (Seacrest)."
