Let’s clone a gay sheep! Greg Cochran’s come up with a way to test the popular but almost untested Gay Gene theory: clone a homosexual ram. Although you hear a lot about homosexuality in animals, most of that is actually bisexuality. There is very little in the way of exclusive homosexual orientation among male animals — but sheep are a clear exception, much to the frustration of sheep ranchers who find that a noticeable percentage of their rams won’t pay attention to a ewe in heat even if you tie her to a fence for his convenience.
Since we’ve known how to clone sheep since the 1990s, it would be straightforward to clone a number of exclusively gay rams and see how many of their clones turn out to be gay as well.
Wow, that is so fascinating. Some sheep are simply homos, alone among all mammals other than bipedal apes. All my whole, I never had any idea that sheep were queer.
