Dr. Charles Roselli says that his research of homosexual sheep “also has broader implications for understanding the development and control of sexual motivation and mate selection across mammalian species, including humans.” He has been denounced by Martina Navratilova, PETA, and The Sunday Times.

John Derbyshire foretold the notion of eugenichomophobia in his ruminations about the last homosexual. But wishful thinking is no more becoming an aficionado of free markets, than it befits a dispassionate scientist. Advances in genetic engineering may well conjoin with eugenic permissiveness in a prerequisite for the bugbear of a foetal homoholocaust. But this convergence would swing the pendulum the other way with far greater force. Derbyshire gleefuly foretold the loneliness of “an aging, fading cohort, with practically no younger people of their inclination to socialize with”. Yet this privation, if not its mere fear, would generate a powerful demand for a purposely bred epicene supply. Alas, the genetic deck remains stacked against counterbalancing a perpetual baby boom of twink clones. When will science deliver the red-blooded male’s prerogative, a woman who sucks and fucks till midnight and then turns into a pizza and a six-pack?
