Don't know if you're asking a legitimate question OR posing an agenda... but I'm answering in case it is legitimate.
First... Cloning humans isn't possible (at least now) and this is a fictional show... so I wouldn't extrapolate reality from fiction... i.e. "I saw it on TV so it must be true in real life as well"
Second... the clones have already been said to not be identical. There is an identifying marker... also Sarah is the only one to have been able to have a child of her own... so there are some differences in them.
Third... genetics can predispose you to something but not necessarily happen. My theory has always been that genetics give you the basics and the possibilities while life experience reveals who you are. Ex... You might be capable of killing, but you may never kill unless backed into a corner and forced to do so... but you were always capable of it. Similarly, with Cosima being gay... we don't know for sure if she is properly gay OR bi-sexual... but either way, it could be that if you expose the clones to the same set of circumstances they might all be attracted to that same woman. No way to say for sure, because Cosima is the only one in that experience.
