Science Corner #1: Gay People's Speech
An age-old debate: do gay people speak in a high/raspy voice and with a lisp because of genetics or because of society? It would seem societal, but I knew some really gay sounding 10-year-olds who turned out to actually be gay, before they knew what gay was. My gut says DNA, and I'd like to open up the New York Times one day and see that scientists have isolated the gay speech gene. I'm sorry, homosexual speech gene.
