Scientists Discover Tranny GeneEver looked at that tranny teetering down the center median of the boulevard and asked yourself "why'd he choose to be like that for?" Well, it turns out that it may not be a choice at all, according to science, which released a statement today, by way of Australian researchers who believe they have found a possible genetic cause for male-to-female transexualism. Suck it, Nurture! The scientists of Oz believe that extra length of the androgen receptor gene may weaken testosterone signals that are sent out to various parts of the brain and body that make you do boy things like play sports and enjoy having a penis. One of the researchers told the Australian AP:
We think that these genetic differences might reduce testosterone action and under masculinize the brain during fetal development. This is something that people are born with and it's certainly not a lifestyle choice as some have suggested.
Which, is good news. The more power we can take away from the argument that these difficult, alienating paths are willfully chosen, the more (one hopes) we can breed compassion and, eventually, understanding. The kind of compassion and understanding exhibited in the first sentence of this post. Trannies forever! Transsexual Gene Found, Researchers Claim [GayWired]
