I'm a loser, since I'm in these 10% of deluded people
Well, it's a business model like any other. They should just raise taxes on Apple devices by 1000% and offer a 50% rebate on ships to any country that does the same. I'm willing to bet it'd work ;)
Also, it is a very incorrect understanding of Darwinism/evolution to say that because some individuals don't reproduce, they don't contribute genes to the community. Maybe the gay brothers of the alpha female ensure her protection and continued survival for their gene pool. Direct transmission is only part of the picture. Using pseudo-science to decry sexual conduct that displease one is equivalent to saying "God hates this behavior". Neither science nor gods talk to us...
Assumption. Also, given the wealth of the Apple top guys, they are obvious targets for ransoms.
You seem to not understand. Cook has had the courage to make his private life public in order to help out all the ones whose private gay life is suffering from people who'd rather they're not allowed to even have a private life. Or to even have a life.
Your "private" life stops being private as soon as other people try to tell you what isn't right. Some of these people will "tell" you with stones, forks, guns, knives or rats. So, yes, it "should" be private, but as long as it can't be, don't blame people with courage like Cook. Blame the ones who "defend family" or "defend the Holy Book" or "defend" any cause that can't really speak for itself and say "hey, i never asked to be defended" at the cost of creating suffering...
The fact the compound, once treated by an industrial process, may have an effect, doesn't make the original product innocuous. Coca-Cola sells Coca-leaf-flavored drinks, but cocaine is dangerous. Plants and drugs are controlled for a reason, not because governments around the world just thought "hey, what could we do this morning? Let's make laws on random plants". Marijuana is an interesting plant providing powerful chemicals for human medicinal use, but it should not be...
This seems to be a pretty long-lived thread...  Anyway, just wanted to chime in this: there is a small segment of the population (apparently around 2%, according to the latest article I read about the subject) that is "by nature", whatever that means, asexual (as in, through their life), and people can go through periods of asexuality (per your definition of "do not have sexual desire"). It is, interestingly, genderless behaviour. It's unrelated to coercion, but it might...
Also.... Isn't INTEL the "world expert"?
Yes, definitely.
