      "What a waste."
      This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

      This gave no usable information. Nothing but the same argument. I think you are gay or you are not. But choice has nothing to do with it.

      "Excellent Listen"

      This is, at least partially, a refutation of the simplistic argument that the sexuality of individuals can be so easily categorized and divided into gay or straight. The case is made that sexual orientation rather than being an either or situation breaks down on a continuum. While there are some people who fit that; there are many more whose sexual orientation doesn't dovetail so clearly into one camp or another. As someone who has had friends of varied sexuality, bisexual girlfriends and most recently a daughter whose orientation has historically been somewhat eclectic I see things more along the lines of this article. Like most of the Scientific American articles an excellent listen.
