They can't test for a Spina Bifida gene, or a Cleft Palate gene either. Some congenital issues are caused by foetal environment, or happenstance. What we can test for is certain gene sequences that make it marginally more likely that the child will be Trans or Gay, but the increase is only about 10%.

Repeating what has been a rallying cry of gay activism for years, the cover of the December 16, 2008 issue of The Advocate announced, “Gay is the New Black: The Last Great Civil Rights Struggle.” Last week, on May 19th, headlines across the nation announced, “NAACP endorses gay marriage as ‘civil right.’” So, is gay the new black?

There are prominent black leaders who say yes, including Congressman John Lewis, who was active in the early Civil Rights movement. There are other prominent black leaders who say no, like Timothy F. Johnson, founder and president of the Frederick Douglass Foundation.
