Strange, ive never thought of it like what biostudent84 wrote. And i dont think many other people have.
How does this work? People dont think "oh. theres too many people in this world, its overpopulated, i'll become a homosexual". Or is there a built in mechanism to make more people homosexual as the population becomes more and more overpopulated.

Ricky Gervais talks about this book on his Animals stand up comedy show (DVD). Thats where i heard about it. Its hilarious when he shows that the proof is drawings not photographs. Anyone can draw two homosexual animals.

Well if you want pictures, you can read this paper that won the 2003 IgNobel Prize in biology: http://www.nmr.nl/DSA8-243.pdf
