Blended with fictional and historical accounts, the epic poetry and narrative, recounts how the Genghis Khan was able to organize more than thirty tribes battling for control, and how once in power, with the objective to augment his population and face his enemies, declared homosexuality illegal under death penalty. Today, more than eight hundred years later, Mongolia is a sovereign country with the lowest population rate in the world, lower than two inhabitants per square kilometer and being a homosexual, continues to be taboo. The weight of tradition and the years under Soviet control, a time in which homosexuals were sent to gulag, surmise a ballast for gays, lesbians, and transsexuals, who continue to be repressed, rejected, and victimized.

I have yet to encounter a crisper expression of the view that biological explanations have no place in the study of society and history.

Genghis Khan's sex life was as extensive as his Mongol Empire. The Mongol leader took full advantage of his position and left a vast genetic legacy. As the Mongols moved through the steppe regions of Central Asia to the east and west, riding their magnificent warhorses along the Silk RoadGenghis Khan used military and administrative tactics - and his sexual prowess - to leave his mark.
There is a legend that Genkhis Khan who had plenty of wives and concubines, died on the day when he realized that his sexual life was scarce without the Chinese Dao of Love. But one day he had to regret about having such lust for sex. In addition, shamans prohibited a man marrying the girls of his tribe under the threat of damnation.

Even more astounding was that up to 8 percent of men living within the former area of the Mongol empire have Y chromosomes related to that royal line. The line of descent goes back around 1, years.
