Don’t Keep Your Genes in the Closet

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

Living free is much better than living with secrets, or in secret.

Witness the freedom celebrated and achieved by the LGBT community when those among them take their genes out of the closet.

Every family has secrets. Secrets are kept about everything, not just about who is gay or straight. The multitude of secrets a family keeps is never discovered. Usually, they are strictly enforced, whether by one or by many. Wherever secrets exist, harm exists also.

Usually, those who create, maintain, or propagate secrets, knowingly or unknowingly, rarely are aware of what harm they inflict. The harm is left for the victim of a secret to suffer, and if fortunate to discover.

Some secrets can inflict violence of a significant magnitude upon families and their members for generations, if not centuries as occurred among the family of Frank and Jesse James. This is particularly true about secrets that are taken to the grave.

For others, like this world-famous geneticist, the discovery can give humor, but, more importantly, answers, explanations, and his release from the family secret the world knew, but he didn’t.
