簡介For men, new research suggests that clues to sexual orientation may lie not just in the genes, but in the spaces between the DNA, where molecular marks instruct genes when to turn on and off and how strongly to express themselves.

題目The gay gene myth has been exploded
日期20190903
簡介The findings of a study of the genetic basis of homosexuality published last week in the journal Science explode the false narrative that being gay is an innate condition that is controlled or largely compelled by one’s genetic makeup. Rebutting decades of search by LGBT scientists for a “gay gene”, the study’s first author flatly concludes “it will be basically impossible to predict one’s sexual activity or orientation just from genetics”.

If There Was a Gay-Straight Switch, Would You Switch?

題目If There Was a Gay-Straight Switch, Would You Switch?
日期20090414
簡介Is there a switch that turns you gay? Studies seem certain to bolster the growing scientific consensus that homosexuality is biological rather than learned. And they point to an answer to the lingering question of whether sexual orientation is hard-wired into the brain or whether it can be altered. But both sides of the debate agree that just because fruit flies and mice can easily switch from straight to gay does not mean that it is that easy for humans to make the same transition.
