DRD4 7r A Genetic Correlate Between Liberalism and Homosexuality (Shortened Title)
Anonymous Conservative Website ^ | August 26, 2012 | Anonymous Conservative

Posted on 08/26/2012 9:06:54 AM PDT by AnonymousConservative

This post requires an understanding of r/K Selection Theory in Evolutionary Biology, and it's relation to our political ideologies. For a quick rundown of this, please see our main page here.

In a previous post we posited that homosexuality may be an extreme form of the reversal in sex specific behaviors which is seen in r-selected populations, where females become more “masculine,” so as to better protect and provision the young they raise alone, while males become more effete, so as to avoid the conflict which is dangerous and disadvantageous under conditions of r-selection.

In that post, we examined the similarities in the neurobiological correlates of gays and Liberals. We then postulated that in gays, the changes which occur in the amygdala as one goes from a K-selected neurobiological structuring to an r-selected neurobiological structuring accidentally go too far, and begin affecting sexual preferences, accidentally turning a merely effete Barack Obama into a full-on Little Richard.

If this was the case, one would expect to see the long form DRD4 polymorphisms, which are one genetic foundation of a Liberal predisposition, to also be associated with homosexual behavior. Of most interest would be the 7r allele of the DRD4 gene, which has been associated with a neurobiology predisposed to Liberalism. Enter the research on the DRD4 7r long form gene:

“About half of the subjects with the long gene had ever had a male sexual partner...” (among self-identified male heterosexuals)

(See: Hamer, D. (2002). Genetics of sexual behavior. In J. Benjamin, R. P. Ebstein, R. H. Belmaker (Eds.), Molecular genetics and the human personality (pp. 257–272). Washington, DC: American Psychiatric Publishing. p266.)

Yes, you read that right. Half of the male DRD4 7r carriers who claimed to be heterosexual, in the sample Hamer used, had engaged in sexual relations with another man.

So long form DRD4 polymorphisms, such as the one associated with Liberalism are associated with infidelity, promiscuity, and homosexuality. The brain structures associated with Liberalism are eerily similar to those associated with homosexuality, and as the researcher in this article discusses, even research into the reversal of sex-specific behaviors and sexual dimorphism matches as well.

Interestingly, Hamer concluded the DRD4 7r allele was mainly about promoting “novelty” in sexual behavior, and not homosexuality, per se. He maintained that he felt DRD4-7r-mediated homosexuality was merely an outgrowth of the individual's drive to find a novel form of sexual partner. This is interesting, as it further supports our contention that Liberalism is an r-strategy.

K-selection is marked by an environment where resources are insufficient, and someone will have to go without. Here, individuals are very discriminating regarding mate fitness. The fitter one's mate, the fitter one's offspring, and the more likely such offspring are to succeed in the fierce competition for the extremely limited resources which are available. This is why on finding the fittest mate possible, the K-selected individual will monopolize that mate's fitness through monogamy, seeking to prevent others from benefiting from mixing their genes with this high level of fitness, to produce offspring. Those within a K-selective environment who do not focus solely on producing fitness in offspring see their offspring starve, and their genes culled from the population. Obviously all of these K-selected urges manifest clearly in the Conservative psychology, which favors careful mate selection and monogamy, and which is focused on giving children every opportunity through high-investment rearing.

By contrast, the excess of resources which marks the r-selective environment eliminates the need for offspring to compete for resources to survive. As a result, every offspring, no matter how unfit, will be able to survive and reproduce, since resources are everywhere. In the r-selective environment, since offspring need not be fit, individuals will focus on producing more offspring, instead of fitter offspring, in an attempt to out-reproduce peers.

To this end, the r-selected organism will seize every mating opportunity, no matter how unfit the mate. Since mate fitness is unimportant, extremely r-selected individuals will not bother with monogamy or mate guarding, instead following a strategy of mating as often as possible. This will result in individuals investing as little as possible in each offspring, through low-investment rearing strategies such as single parenting.

Here, what a researcher would term sexual novelty seeking among those who carry the Liberal gene is really the absence of sexual discrimination, combined with a drive to mate with any mate, regardless of fitness, or even suitability to reproduction (when accidentally over-expressed). Under the Extreme r-Hypothesis of Homosexuality, when carried to an accidental extreme, the r-selected psychology will produce a male individual willing to mate with anything - even another male individual.

Notice also, we maintain the r-strategy of Liberalism is produced by the diminished amygdala development which Kanai et al. identified. In Kluver Bucy syndrome, amygdala dysfunction produces an individual which is prone to mating with inappropriate partners and objects. Such a grossly indiscriminate mating strategy is only favorable under conditions of r-selection.

In summary, here we see a gene which reduces the individual's ability to perform a fitness discrimination in a prospective mate, while simultaneously programming them to follow an aggressively promiscuous mating strategy. That this gene is the only gene presently associated with the Liberal political ideology only strengthens the case for Liberalism as an r-selected reproductive strategy, as identified in r/K Selection Theory in Evolutionary Biology. That homosexuality correlates with all of this would offer an interesting case that homosexuality may, in fact, arise from a periodic accidental over-expression of Liberal neurobiology. In such a case, males become inordinately effeminate, and the neurological reversal of sex specific behaviors and urges so commonly seen in r-selected individuals bleeds over into mate selection criteria. That homosexuals tend to support Liberalism overwhelmingly, and that Liberals tend to support homosexuals overwhelmingly only further cements their linkage.

Again, I would urge Liberals to quash those feelings of homophobia which would lead them to denigrate Gay America by trying to deny the scientific correlates between between gays and Liberals (as if gays were somehow unfit to be associated with the modern Liberal). To Liberals, I say you should embrace your homosexual brethren (and honestly acknowledge your own bi-curious urges). Having honestly examined ourselves, then we can all move forward, together, towards a better understanding of political ideology and it's biological purposes.

Absent an understanding of how r/K Selection Theory in Evolutionary Biology has produced our modern political ideologies, we are all fighting blindly in a battle we do not understand. With an understanding of r/K Selection Theory, we see not only the purposes behind each ideological position, but we see how Conservatism embodies all that is good, by our species' K-selected mores and virtues.

Perverts have always existed here and elsewhere.About 45 years ago the Rat Party,as part of its coalition building efforts,has basically declared that “anything goes” and that “the 50’s were a repressive,despicable era”.After having specifically and proudly announced their acceptance of various misfit groups...from welfare parasites to illegal aliens to sexual perverts...members of these groups have gravitated toward the Rats and,in the case of parasites and wetbacks (at least) their numbers have grown substantially.It’s simple and,IMO,need not be explained by complicated scientific graphs and tables.

Absolutely fascinating theory, bravo to you for your research - which answers so many questions I have had about American culture and liberals for so long. Your website which I’ve been reading is like turning on light after light in a darkened room.

For example:

“To this end, the r-selected organism will seize every mating opportunity, no matter how unfit the mate. Since mate fitness is unimportant, extremely r-selected individuals will not bother with monogamy or mate guarding, instead following a strategy of mating as often as possible. This will result in individuals investing as little as possible in each offspring, through low-investment rearing strategies such as single parenting.”

There is an advantage in this form of understanding though.

In looking at it as r/K selection, you are able to discern the majority’s K-selected views more clearly, and see exactly where the Liberal’s r-selected views diverge. Once you see that, you can better argue in such a way as to appeal to the Lemmings.

For example, Libs support single mom’ing it. They argue every woman should be able to do as she wishes as a parent, thereby trying to make it an issue of parental freedom. K-selected individuals value freedom, so this can make the argument tolerable to the uneducated.

In the r/K paradigm though, single parenting is merely low-investment parenting, designed to maximize offspring production, at the expense of the offspring’s rearing quality. Highlight in the debate that the Liberal doesn’t care about the children, and that they are supporting something which hurts children, simply because they are programmed to not care about children or their rearing, and you create a wedge between the Lemmings, who value K-selected urges, and the Liberals. K-selected individuals will always put the child first.

I am also exploiting Liberal Narcissism, using some interesting realities in science. If enough people are talking about how Liberals and Gays are the same, Liberals will reflexively try to avoid being labeled with the Liberal tag.

Liberals need to feel superior. And for all their talk about tolerance, and the embrace of their lessers, they are remarkably bigoted. They like gays - so long as they feel superior to them, and the gays are their lessers. Begin to associate Liberalism with homosexuality, and you will hear Liberals squeal.

I actually probably understand Liberals better than Conservatives, so a lot of what I am doing is pointing out ideas which will drive Liberals crazy, if they enter the dialog.

I agree that there are real advantages to this selection theory: Not only adding biological underpinnings to political discourse, but it also resurrects Nietzsche’s psychology of slave-ressentiment of master morality and puts a 21st century scientific spin on that.

Homosexuals and liberals- perfect together!

HOMOSEXUAL, because there’s nothing GAY about it.

I think if enough people see it, and begin using it, it could make a differnce. I’m just hopeful enough people will look at it that ti will ctach on. It seems like the technical nature limits it’s appeal to a smaller subset of Conservatives who have mechanically minded psycholgies.

Thanks for the kind words.

Why isn’t this just a very short step from eugenics, Master Race concepts and all that horrific stuff?

It’s really no different than avoiding an ugly, stupid, ill tempered, foul smelling, irrational and sickly date.

So homosexuals and liberals should all be receiving therapy and genetic treatment to cure their problems. The kind thing would be to bring them back to normal from their insanity.

Horses, cows donkeys, goats, sheep, dogs, and Democrat womyn.... Wonder which end of that spectrum they start at.

The difference between this and Eugenics is this describes Conservatism and Liberalism, and explains what the underlying forces driving both are. This understanding doesn’t, per se create a prescription.

Now if you are K, what you want prescribed will be apparent. It is freedom, where each man rises and falls on their own merit. You can argue that is Social Darwinism, but in reality it is social K-selection. Everyone earns what they can produce in free interactions with others. It’s just freedom.

If you are r-selected, you will abhor this free environment, since you will be programmed to be horrified by any thought of free competition among men. You want that r-selected environment, where everyone has free resources available, all the time, regardless of ability, effort, or determination. This is not sustainable, as we are seeing now, and as a result, it will lead to desires for Eugenics, but only where the Liberal is the one who decides who breeds, and who get’s sterilized What the extreme left side of the spectrum wants, is in truth, Social Darwinism as well, but it is Social r-selection, where everything is apportioned to all equally, by force, and nobody enjoys any advantage. Absent aggressive Eugenics, it si unsustainable, and this is why the left has been so pro-eugenics throughout history.

The problem is everyone wants something “nice.” Nature, unfortunately isn’t nice. If you embrace Conservatism, some will invariably not demonstrate ability, effort, and determination, and they will not have as much as others. It’s not nice, but it isn’t cruel either, if private charity kicks in, which it will.

If you embrace Liberalism, the r-selected cohort will engage in promiscuity and single parenting, exploding their numbers on the freely available resources you provide. They will not contribute much, and they will feel entitled to a lot, and eventually, they will crash the entire system, bringing in K-selection with a bang, as we are about to see.

At this point, I am more about characterizing all of this than prescribing solutions, which I think are obvious to the Conservative intellectual.

They are all the same, if you’re Liberal enough!
