Scientists Make Fruit Flies Gay, Then Straight Again

A new study finds that both drugs and genetic manipulation can turn the homosexual behavior of fruit flies on and off within a matter of hours
Yeah I know a few people who are like that once they consume enough drugs and alchohol...

That is very strange. I'd be willing to ask HOW this experiement contributes to science just to see what weird responses I get.

It advances the theory that all of your traits are genetically based, including homosexuality, which some still view as a matter of personal choice. This study would seem to indicate that it's nature, not nurture.

Which one do you think it is Morpheus ?? Nature or nurture ?? Maybe doctors are using fruit flies because they are fruity

Actually I think they use fruit flies because their genome has been mapped already and has lots of documentation.

Personally, I think there may be a genetic predisposition, in the form of a mutation, but I still feel it's a personal choice-like alcoholism.

Alcoholism may be a choice, but there are also genetic predispositions to having "addictive behavior" and "depression" which can lead to alchoholism. So it gets complicated......

So it's more like a personal choice that leads to physiological changes in the body (perhaps brought about by natural adaptation) that further develop the condition in question.

I guess, as far as alcoholism is concerned, that makes sense. Not sure about homosexuality though.

Personally, I'm not a supporter of it, but also not an activist against it. So long as it goes on without my knowing it, I'm ok with it.

The military, in political neutrality, has a "don't ask, don't tell" policy in place with regard to homosexuality. That's basically the way I feel as well. If you are a homosexual, fine. Don't bring it to my attention and we'll get along. When you do, you'll be asked to keep it to yourself.

Actually it's more like the other way around-like genes causing physiological changes in the body, in this case brain chemistry, that predispose one to certain personal choices, like alcoholism, drugs, or ...pole smoking.

Surprisingly, I'm with you on this one Anime.
