Biologists: Same-sex relationships may drive evolution. "Same-sex sexual behaviors are flexibly deployed in a
variety of circumstances, for example as alternative reproductive

queer and gender studies to pretty much swamp, nay drown, the gay
history field with their gobbledygook theorizing of what might have
happened. This ludicrous state of affairs prohibits making statements
such as: "they did then what we do now," without the wrath of queer
theorists raining down insults of an uncommonly vitriolic nature. You
