The New York Times says:
Studies of twins show that homosexuality, especially among men, is quite heritable, meaning there is a genetic component to it. But since gay men have about one-fifth as many children as straight men, any gene favoring homosexuality should quickly disappear from the population.
But why is it that people say “parami ng parami ang mga bading… di naman nanganganak!” How come the “gay gene” persists?
Would it be that there are actually a lot of fathers (daddy!) out there who carry the “gay gene” — they are gays but choose not to practice homosexuality? And that those married men who gallivant in the gay scene are just the tip of the iceberg? Interesting.
