Good god, Mike’s hair is almost gravity-feasible here.
And let them marry is a very effective way to stop having sex eventually :plol
@Rodrigo You obviously don’t know many homosexual men then I take it? :p Even after 40 years gay men generally would be doing it lol.
No, because they eventually DIE and since man + man does not equal baby gays will go extinct if it really is a genitic thing…
On the other hand, there’s the option of adoption, or sperm donation. So thecnically they CAN still procreate, just with the tools of hetero people that don’t want kids.
I have yet to meet an adopted child who had a genetic link to his or her parents. I’m sure it happens, but not often enough to make a difference.
…every adopted child has a genetic link to their parents. 0.0
……….. What? Look up the word Genetic Bekah.. because what you said sounds well.. Very very silly.
Unless your ultra religious and dont believe in basic biology. Then you get a pass.
Aside from the fact that both of these replies are very, very late, Kevin is Right; every adopted child has a genetic link to their parents.. just not their adopted parents.
Not necessarily. Genetics isn’t that simple — genes for something as common as homosexuality don’t just constantly appear out of nowhere.
If a gay man’s hetero siblings carry genes responsible for his orientation either partially as recessive traits, in full as sex-linked traits that don’t affect their gender, or in full, but unexpressed due to environmental effects on development, then it passes on.

I love Mike so much.
But homosexuality isn’t genetic…
It’s caused by hormonal imbalances while the child is in the uterus :/
Uhh yeah, because they really have figured out exactly what causes homosexuality down to an exact pinpoint. Most people agree it’s *partially* linked to genetics.
where exactly do you get your information?
Thats one of the reasons yes! A forerunner..
Scientists dont tend to speak in absolutes though, Good scientists at least. There’ll be plenty of reasons by the end of the investigation.
Ha! Well, I supports it, but not for the crazy-arse reason in this comic.
you do realize that genetic doesn’t automatically mean hereditary. funny comic though.
Your comment made me laugh more than the comic itself.
Mike is very attractive well-drawn in the last panel.
D: Dear God, he’s right. *drops to knees* CURSE YOU WILLIS FOR CREATING A BOTH TRUE AND FUNNY COMIC. DX( Using Mike to explain negative consequences of rules should be against the rules.
A recent study researched into this and found that the same gene that leads to homosexuality in males leads to super-fecundity in females (They get pregnant very easily). That’s why the homosexuality gene still exists, because there is an evolutionary reason for it in females.
Then, where do homosexual females’ genes come from? O.o
That hasn’t been explained yet. Just off the cuff, though, I’d guess that there might either be (a) a parallel compensating advantage for their brothers or (b) the factor of women often having the choice of whether to have unprotected sex “taken out of their hands,” shall we say.
Either way, this epidemiological study hasn’t pinpointed the gene nor does it claim that this could be the sole genetic factor in male homosexuality.
It’s funny, but not necessarily true. Studies show that a couple in which both of the members are heterosexual can still produce a homosexual child, since one can carry the gene without being gay (I’m assuming it’s recessive or something?).
goodness, I love Mike. he’s so much fun!
note: no study has proven any cause for homosexuality and for every study I have heard I have known at least one gay man who that reason would make no sense for.
