No way. I minored in biology and have too much genetic training to claim that. I was stating that the *attraction* was real.

I was refuting a prior claim that gay males really weren't interested in other males, but were merely practicing on them so that they could get enough experience to go get females.

My point was that gay males really prefer males. It's not a second choice because they can't get females, and it's not a secret strategy to get more females. Some males really do prefer other males.
