Default The Reference Thread: Post all important references here

Since this seems to come up every couple weeks anyways for the last 2 years, this will be a thread for those that want to reference evidence involving sexuality, attraction, etc in a scientific way.






Evidence for homosexuality gene, it took me more time to number these than it did to find them. And those of you that are too lazy to find these resources on your own may thank me now. This is just 15 of the 264 published scientific papers I found on the subject :

Title: Evidence for a biological influence in male homosexuality
Author: LeVay,-Simon
Add.Author / Editor: Hamer,-Dean-H
Citation: Scientific American v 270 May 1994. p. 44-9
Year: 1994
Abstract: It is unlikely that any single factor can explain a trait as complex and variable as sexual orientation, but laboratory studies indicate that genes and brain development play a significant role. A brain cell group called the third interstitial nucleus of the anterior hypothalamus has been found to vary in size with gender and with sexual orientation. Family studies have found that the brothers of homosexual men, especially twin brothers, are more likely than men without gay brothers to be gay themselves. Gay brothers are also more likely than others to share matching genes in an X chromosome region called Xq28. People should bear in mind, however, that other claimed discoveries of genes related to personality traits have proved controversial. Furthermore, no specific homosexuality gene has been isolated, nor have investigators determined how such a gene might function.

Genetic models of homosexuality: generating testable predictions.Gavrilets S, Rice WR.
Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN 37996, USA. gavrila@tiem.utk.edu

Homosexuality is a common occurrence in humans and other species, yet its genetic and evolutionary basis is poorly understood. Here, we formulate and study a series of simple mathematical models for the purpose of predicting empirical patterns that can be used to determine the form of selection that leads to polymorphism of genes influencing homosexuality. Specifically, we develop theory to make contrasting predictions about the genetic

characteristics of genes influencing homosexuality including: (i) chromosomal location, (ii) dominance among segregating alleles and (iii) effect sizes that distinguish between the two major models for their polymorphism: the overdominance and sexual antagonism models. We conclude that the measurement of the genetic characteristics of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) found in genomic screens for genes influencing homosexuality can be highly informative in resolving the form of natural selection maintaining their polymorphism.

Title: A linkage between DNA markers on the X chromosome and male sexual orientation
Citation: Science v 261 July 16 1993. p. 321-7
Year: 1993
Abstract: Pedigree analysis of the families of 76 homosexual men and DNA linkage studies of families that included 2 homosexual brothers were used to investigate the role of genetics in male sexual orientation. The data point to a statistically significant correlation between the inheritance of genetic markers on chromosomal region Xq28, the subtelomeric region of the long arm of the sex chromosome, and sexual orientation in a selected group of homosexual males. A statistical confidence level of more than 99 percent can be established for the effect of genetic influences on at least one subtype of male sexual orientation. .

Title: Evidence for maternally inherited factors favouring male homosexuality and promoting female fecundity

Citation: Proceedings-of-the-Royal-Society-Biological-Sciences-Series-B. 2004; 271(1554): 2217-2221
Year: 2004
Abstract: The Darwinian paradox of male homosexuality in humans is examined, i.e. if male homosexuality has a genetic component and homosexuals reproduce less than heterosexuals, then why is this trait maintained in the population? In a sample of 98 homosexual and 100 heterosexual men and their relatives (a total of over 4600 individuals), we found that female maternal relatives of homosexuals have higher fecundity than female maternal relatives of heterosexuals and that this difference is not found in female paternal relatives. The study confirms previous reports, in particular that homosexuals have more maternal than paternal male homosexual relatives, that homosexual males are more often later-born than first-born and that they have more older brothers than older sisters. We discuss the findings and their implications for current research on male homosexuality.

Abstract: A population-genetic analysis proves as to why a gene predisposing an individual to homosexual behavior would spread in a population, thus predicting its widespread occurrence in humans and other reproducing species. Overdominance, sexually antagonistic selection and kin altruism are the three main mechanics in which a variety of genes controlling homosexuality could be maintained in a population.

So add whatever references you need in this thread. And use it for your debates.

If I have a text-book here, at my house, and want to use it in a debate, can I? I'd cite it, of course, but it's not something other people can really see without buying it...What if I 'down-size' content so it can be readily understood. Can I use it then?
The study of theology, as it stands in the Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authority; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and it admits of no conclusion.

Text books are pretty easy to use. Yes citing it is good. This allows to check that you at least have the book.

I am imagining this thread as more of a thing for linking sources that can be found on the internet. I will add them all to the first post to keep it up to date on whatever subject you want.

If I were to list all of my text books it would be a bit rediculous though. I am sticking with papers about specific topics I come across. I have a few that I read this week that I will post later that were extremely interesting.

Nobody in my Christian Morality class believes me when I bring up the gay gene. I was hoping that you could tell me which of these articles would be:

A) Relatively short
B) In language that 10th graders would be able to understand.

I haven't the time to read all of them, I'm on a total time shortage.

Ok, easy to read:

1. This one has very little genetic terms in it and is a great deal of pedigree analysis in it. It is easy to read but not much for proof I am guessing in their eyes. Plus, is should be in your H.S. library or readily availible online.

Title: Evidence for Homosexuality Gene
Author: Robert Pool
Citation: Science, New Series, Vol. 261, No. 5119 1993-07-16 pp. 291-292

External: http://links.jstor.org/sici?sici=003...3E2.0.CO%3B2-Z
Copyright: Copyright 1992 American Association for the Advancement of Science






2. This one is a bit more technical but it identifies 54 genes that contribute to human sexuality. Tougher to read and you may not have access to it readily there, so if you want send me your email address and I can send you a PDF file of it.

Resource: Academic Search Elite (EBSCO)
Title: A gay gene? How about 54 of them?
Author: Ryan, Benjamin
Add.Author / Editor: Ryan, Benjamin
Citation: Advocate 11/25/2003 Issue 903, p18
Year: 2003
Abstract: The article reports on the sexual identity of gays and transgender people. A study from the University of California, Los Angeles, supports the argument that sexual identity and perhaps sexual orientation may be hardwired. In a study of mice, researchers identified 54 genes that functioned differently in male and female brains before the appearance of sex hormones. According to researchers, while the study has not identified a gay gene, it may aid in determining sexual identity's genetic origins, particularly in future studies. The study may also aid physicians in identifying the sex of infants born with ambiguous genitalia.





Let me know if this helps, it really is a collection of works though, I have 118 that talk specifically about gay genetics in our library database that I can send you

are we allowed to post abstracts or titles of articles/papers that most probably people would not have ready access to. my school has dozens of databases that search through journals and such (jstor, for example), but most people don't have subscription to it. should i still cite them or just articles that can be viewed by all/most?

Absolutely, just post the article and in what you want it to be a reference too. And I have access to most journals and can get PDF's if you want.
