Lesbians’ brains reacted somewhat, though not completely, like those
of heterosexual men, a team of Swedish researchers said in Tuesday’s
edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
A year ago, the same group reported findings for gay men that showed
their brain response to hormones was similar to that of heterosexual
In both cases the findings add weight to the idea that homosexuality has a physical basis and is not learned behavior.
Well, dur. Lesbians’ brains different? No! Still, anything that pushes a little nature-not-nurture out there in the news is fine by me.
But hey, this may explain why neither of us can remember a birthday to save our lives…. (Seriously, that’s one of the reasons why we got married on April 1st — so that if we DO forget an anniversary, we can "April Fools!" our way right out of it. "Ha! Gotcha! Betcha thought I forgot! No, I got you this, this, errrrr…. ballpoint pen! See? Barely used! Happy Anniversary, babe!")
