You've made my point. I have no use for the "science" of race as race itself is an ascientific concept. Gee, look at all the good stuff that has come out of studying race. My point is that there is nothing to be gained politically from some pseudo-scientific attempts to normalize sexual orientation, and everything to lose.

I don't like sociobiololgy when the right does it, and I don't like it any better when the left does it.
