Birth Order May Affect HomosexualityResearcher Says Study Supports Idea That Sexual Orientation Starts Before BirthBy Miranda HittiWebMD Health NewsReviewed by Louise Chang, MDJune 26, 2006 -- Men may be more likely to be homosexual if they share their birth mother with older brothers, even if they didn't grow up with those brothers."These results strongly suggest a prenatal origin to the fraternal birth-order effect," writes Canada's Anthony Bogaert, PhD, in the early online edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences...Bogaert's findings don't prove that birth order determines sexual orientation. However, Bogaert writes that the study supports the idea that sexual orientation starts before birth.
The programme is on tomorrow!!!www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/pro...ced_jbarrowmanI hope all people abroad will get it on the BBC iplayer.
But one thing does make me wonder, why do we also get gay animals as homosexuality seems to be common with them too. You can have homosexual horses, dogs, sheep (sorry neil), cattle etc and many other types of animal exhibit this behaviour so its not exclusive to humans.
We need more sane study and discussion and not a homophobic reaction as soon as the word "Gay" is mentioned.
