Scientists May Have Finally Unlocked Puzzle of Why People Are Gay
I've had the feeling that certain people are programmed in a complex society not to propagate, of whom gays are a subset, in order to help society. It appeared that this was genetic and as such according Darwinian theory, should also apply to lower order life forms such as ants and bees. Sure enough on the same day as they find that it's not genetic but epigenic for gays, they also find the the same epigenic changes apply to bees as well.
Lesbians get it from fathers, gay men from mothers?

Scientists may have finally solved the puzzle of what makes a person gay, and how it is passed from parents to their children.

A group of scientists suggested Tuesday that homosexuals get that trait from their opposite-sex parents: A lesbian will almost always get the trait from her father, while a gay man will get the trait from his mother.

The hereditary link of homosexuality has long been established, but scientists knew it was not a strictly genetic link, because there are many pairs of identical twins who have differing sexualities. Scientists from the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis say homosexuality seems to have an epigenetic, not a genetic link.
