Hi Ken,
"Likely of medieval (Scholastic 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scholasticism>) 
origin,^[1] 
<http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/de_gustibus_non_est_disputandum#cite_note-1> 
particularly due to the grammar. An alternative, 
more recent form: /de gustibus et coloribus non 
est disputandum 
<http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/de_gustibus_et_coloribus_non_est_disputandum#Latin>/ 
("There's no arguing about tastes and colors.") 
originated in French literature in the early 1800s".

Did you post this in relation to "sexuality" or 
"speculation"???
Cheers,
Marc
