We need a twatwaffle visual.
25th-Nov-2006 01:06 am (UTC) - Done!

Is a twatwaffle anything like a cuntblintz?

I've referred this to an expert...

perhaps it's the women's arm of the Luftwaffle?

'twatwaffle' sounds a little like a fancy word for 'queef'.

His 'controversial' theory is not at all controversial---it's more made-up fundie bullshit. This man is such a load of crap! Makes me wish the whole heaven-hell thing was real so that when this piece of shit dies he can get his tight ass kicked right the fuck to hell.

I need to ask this, because I'm having trouble formulating a cogent response to Dobson's point that "if homosexuality were genetic, then both identical twins would be gay."

Of all the silly faux-Freud nonsense he gets off about his theory of homosexuality, this is the one point I can't figure out a way around. So I ask: if one believes, as I do, that being gay is most likely genetic, then how does one explain the identical twin thing?

Thanks for any thoughts on this.

there are many reasons this could be.

Not all traits need be concordant - many are discordant. This facilitates understanding the role of environment in gene expression / epigenentic modification.

Let's call an environmental stimulus Env-A.

Twins are both raised together, but there is a difference in what they're exposed to, and how much at given timepoints. Let's say twin1 is exposed to a sub-threshold level of Env-A at some criticial timepoint t, but twin2 is exposed to a greater amount of the stimulus at that same time point, and as a result there's some covalent modification made in the brain of twin2 (methylation or histone acetylation, for example). As a result, a gene, or more likely, a group of genes, now shows differential expression between the two individuals. This is despite the fact that they are identical. If this is somehow linked with sexual development, you have an answer.

This is a simple abstraction, but this phenomenon is seen all the time in traits that are almost certainly seen in families (and thus assumed genetic).

I hope my tendency towards jargoning it up didn't make that harder to understand.

Not at all...thanks for the response.

I've always thought Dobson more of a fucktard than a twatwaffle.

DOBSON: Yeah, probably that, too. But in Galatians 6.1, there is a scripture that says when — "Brothers when one of you falls into sin, those who are spiritual should work to restore him gently."

I'll restore you baby... go get me some lube.

Fucking Christians. How blind do you have to be to realize Jesus was/is a fag and a canibal?
