And I Thought, "What The Hell, Let's Try It Once With A Woman And See What Those Straight Guys Are Raving About"
Gay men's brains respond differently from those of heterosexual males when exposed to a sexual stimulus, researchers have found. The homosexual men's brains responded more like those of women when the men sniffed a chemical from the male hormone testosterone.Which is what we've been trying to tell all these people who insist that gays can be "reprogrammed". Look, if you happen to be one of those folks, here's a lot of useful, honest information about sexual orientation, mm-kay? Read it and get back to us, and quit abusing your children.
"It is one more piece of evidence ... that is showing that sexual orientation is not all learned," said Sandra Witelson, an expert on brain anatomy and sexual orientation at the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada.
Witelson, who was not part of the research team, said the findings clearly show a biological involvement in sexual orientation.
