    Bored with your sexual orientation, change it with a handful of pills.

    Coming soon to a chemist near you.

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    Jesusfuckingcuntbubblechrist. Now that's scary. I wonder how long it is before that product really is marketed? Will that join Sanatogen, Ritalin and Prozac on the list of things that Mummy doles out with your cornflakes in the morning? Gah. I feel all cross and weird. Presumably I could get a pill for that, too.

    Does anyone else have a terrible fear of a bunch of fundies getting ahold of the base components of this stuff, vaporizing it, and blasting gay bars and dance clubs with it?

    Artemis_of_OZ:
    Yes. Although blasting gaybars with vaporized anti-gay-gas doesn't seem very likely to me, at the very least this could be used to support the claim that homosexuality is some sort of disease that needs to be cured.

    Still, VERY cool discovery.

    The article mentioned that they were able to turn the behavior on and off, but not if they tried to make a hetero fly gay. Because I could think of a few uses for that. Where are they holding the Republican Party convention next year?

    I've just discovered one scary thing about this. I just showed it to my sister and she threatened to spike my drink with this stuff when it gets out

    But the GB gene became even more interesting when post-doctoral researcher Yael Grosjean noticed that all the GB mutant male flies were courting other males.


    Fly courtship?

    Jesus, it's like something out of Axiomatic.
