In the last two decades, dozens of scientific papers have been published on the biological origins of homosexuality - another announcement was made last week. It's becoming scientific orthodoxy. But how does it fit with Darwin's theory of evolution? Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's hit song Same Love, which has become an unofficial anthem of the pro-gay marriage campaign in the US, reflects how many gay people feel about their sexuality. It mocks those who "think it's a decision, and you can be cured with some treatment and religion - man-made rewiring of a predisposition".
The Science of Gaydar
As a presence in the world—a body hanging from a subway strap or pressed into an elevator, a figure crossing the street—I am neither markedly masculine nor notably effeminate. Nor am I typically perceived as androgynous, not in my uniform of Diesels and boots, not even when I was younger and favored dangling earrings and bright Jack Purcells. But most people immediately read me correctly as gay. It takes only a glance to make my truth obvious. I know this from strangers who find gay people offensive enough to elicit a remark—catcalls from cab windows, to use a recent example—as well as from countless casual social engagements in which people easily assume my orientation, no sensitive gaydar necessary. The label fell into disrepute, but lately a number of well-known researchers in the field of sexual orientation have been reviving it based on an extensive new body of research showing that most of us, whether top or bottom, butch or femme, or somewhere in between, share a kind of physical otherness that locates us in our own quadrant of the gender matrix, more like one another than not. Whatever that otherness is seems to come from somewhere deep within us.

So I went to a zippy mart to cash a check and they would not do it and this black guy behind me told me he could help me. I followed him back to his house and he said he would cash my check if I let him play with me. I told him I was straight and he turned to walk in his house, I needed the cash because it was after midnight, so I agreed to let him touch me. After about 10 min, I was completely naked and he was in my car and had his pants off. He ask me to touch him and I did and then he said suck my cock and I just did it.
