Are you feeling different?


Nope, I'm still a lesbian trapped in a man's body

Me too.
Not the same body, mind.

One of my bosses once described me as a gay man in disguise ...

There is a suggestion that brain structure differs in gay men compared with the general population and also in lesbian women compared with the general population.


There is a suggestion? And who made this suggestion? Do they have any evidence to support their suggestion?

That would suggest that sexuality then is genetic.

It's always been about nature rather than nurture. But I see where you are coming from, especially given some of Dally's previous posts, where he seems to suggest that gayness can be learned

Translated as 'I can't find a link to the actual study'.

I'm on my phone now, but if I switch my PC on later I might try to dig out in original study. Often, what's reported in the press differs somewhat from what has actually been found. Also, this study involves only 90 people, according to the BBC. That's not exactly a massive sample size. And the article doesn't mention what percentage of people in the study showed these differences in brain structure.

All that aside, the findings seem to be being presented as normal genetic variation in brain structure causing homosexuality, rather than some sort of deformity or abnormality as you imply.
