“I wish I knew, I wish I knew
What makes me me, what makes you you”
— Cat Stevens, I Wish I Wish
The question of whether being gay is a choice has been batted around a lot lately but there’ are quite a lot of studies showing a biological bases for sexual orientation. What sex you tend to fall for doesn’t appear to be any more of a choice than what individual you fall for….and jinkies, if we could chose that we’d save an awful lot on divorce lawyers (but then again, we’d have no songs like “ I’ve got tears in my ears from lying on my back in my bed while I cry over you,” which almost makes lousy love affairs worth the Sturm und Drang).
At any rate, here area few reasons to think Lady Gaga just might be on to something.
