Interesting work on the origin of homosexuality within an individual.

I received this video via a psychology newsletter. It shows some interesting research into the origins of homosexuality within an individual using twin studies. It poses some interesting science. What do you think of it?

I was relieved till she said she would rather have a gi joe boy...Still she is allowing him his own identity which is wonderful. I suspect you're on to something with the transgender issue, though too often homosexuality and transgender are considered one and the same.

Daniel I agree for the most part. The 'reason's a person is gay are irrelevant to those of us with open minds. However the global villification of homosexuality inevitably leads to research into cause. Don't forget that in your and my living history it was still considered a mental illness. Unfortunately some people will only accept homosexuality if there can be seen to be some organic reason to it. I don't like that and wish it were different, we're not evolved enough yet.

I also agree homophobia ought to be the topic of research - there is after all the phobia tag at the end of it and we know how to treat them. If we use homophobia as a starting point from which to resolve that as a problem, we know we have indeed made progress.
