The posterior corpus callosum was larger in homosexual than heterosexual men. In women, the corpus callosum is much bigger than in men. That's why women have their brain functions more distributed, while men have a more "asymmetrical" brain.

This makes sense. I read another study about the physical responses of gay women, lesbians. It seems that when a human is startled, the pupils in the eyes dilate quickly, to bring in more light to be able to better see any possible threat. (I've noticed the same thing when watching my cat's eyes.) How fast the pupils dilate then return to normal size is different between the sexes, with male pupils dilating much faster than females. Except in lesbians. The pupils of a lesbian will dilate almost as fast as a male. So, the chemical influences that influence our sex traits before we are even born must affect female homosexuals just as it does male homosexuals.

I have doubts about the full veracity of this, because it is my understainding that 'science' is establishing more and more that there is no simple spilt between male and female - none of us, in other words, is definitely one or the other. This research could, in the wrong hands, couse more hassle and trouble for people who do not properly conform to the general perception of 'feminine' or 'masculine' by these bizarre measures.

Each person is an individual and is made to be so, and there are no definitive measures of identity.

Love to all

This might help lend credence to the theory of gestational hormonal bombardment. (Karen, I don't disagree with you, just think that this may be one plausible cause out of many.)

Frankly, I think that anything that helps to point out to the more narrow minded that homosexuality is not an anti-religous choice has to help advance the acceptance of homosexuality as a norm.

Thank you Eduardo.
