Born gay? How biology may drive orientationbbc.co.uk
Made popular 2547 days ago in Health
timesonline.co.uk — There are people who can "cure" you of your sexual orientation. If you are a woman, your eyes will no longer linger on tall, dark, musclebound Lotharios. If you are a man, your heart will no longer flutter at the sight of a plunging cleavage or a smooth thigh - instead it will thump into action at the glimpse of a broad, taut torso or a neatly trimmed moustache.

Science has so far trodden carefully in the controversial debate about whether gays are born or made. Disparate pieces of evidence - such as homosexuality running in families, and identical twins having more similar sexual preferences than ordinary siblings - have long suggested that biology rather than upbringing shapes sexual preference. Now two researchers are throwing out the caveats in an attempt to "out" the bald scientific truth: we are born either straight or gay and nothing can be done to make us otherwise.
