Reducto ad absurdium. I'd say that when a person's proclivity for tomatoes has an important impact on social policies, then we can put it in the same category. Same for fuzzy robes. I'd say that some people end up more vulnerable to or receptive toward (take your pick) homosexual behavior. In the face of a paucity of evidence, it looks like nurture may have the upper hand at the moment. If there is in fact a "gay gene", I'm sure it won't be long before someone discovers it at the current rate of things.
