Once we realize that human sex isn't primarily about reproduction, but about love (or like), there's nothing to divide LGBT folk from straight folk (or straight breeders from non-breeders, for that matter). You're either pro-love or anti-love. Who/how we love is a non-issue. Thanks, Dan, for articulating that message so well for so long.

Ceasar wears pants for most of the film, without ever shitting himself. And what the hell are chimps going to eat in a redwood forest, anyway? Shit movie.

Life loves gay kids too.

Being from central PA, I can't help hearing this as "monog-Amish" which creates kind of a weird image. Dan, Terry, and a bearded guy in a horse and buggy? But I guess it works better than the phrase I normally deploy: "None of your damned business."

@18 You know, there's no pleasing everyone, and smug, humorless types who use screen names like "nocutename" weren't our intended audience in any case.

Canuck, I was also surprised to find that Paul was as young and unblemished as he is!

PeteinJapan, No, haven't heard anything from Dr. Pinker. Standing by.

This is wise and heartfelt.

@23, you have no idea what you're talking about. Frans de Waal is one of the premier bonobo researchers. He's spent decades with them in Holland, San Diego, and now Atlanta, where he head the Yerkes Primate Center. There are teams of primatologists who have been in Congo for decades observing bonobos in the wild. Get a clue, man.

@26 agreed on evolutionary psychology. Our book is a critique of a lot of the mainstream EP you've probably read. I'm not saying you'd necessarily like our book, but if you're thinking Pinker, Buss, Fisher, and that crowd, you'll find that we don't shy from criticizing their methodology and, as you say, back-filled reasoning process.

Why no third option for those of us with no opinion or one that is too complex to break down into love or hate? (I think it looks bad but know from experience that growing a beard every once in a while is fun and empowering in some weird way.)
