Interesting. But can it explain love between gays and lesbians? May be it's a misfiring?

Not everything that doesn't lead to producing babies need be a misfiring. There could be a good evolutionary reason for certain members of the population to refrain from breeding (perhaps to assist parents and/or siblings with child raising). Same-sex relationships may have some role in bonding groups together.
