    Go to Chapter One Section • Go to Book World's Review. Queer Science The Use and Abuse of Research into Homosexuality and the development of ideas about the nature and causes of.   To Western science, homosexuality (both animal and human) is an anomaly, an unexpected behavior that above all requires some sort of “explanation” or “cause” or “rationale.” In contrast, to many indigenous cultures around the world, homosexuality and transgender are a routine and expected occurrence in both the human and animal.

    Biological theories for explaining the causes of sexual orientation are favored by scientists. These factors, which may be related to the development of a sexual orientation, include genes, the early uterine environment (such as prenatal hormones), and brain structure. While there is still much debate on the exact causes of homosexuality and a “gay gene” remains elusive, biological scientists agree that there is a strong genetic influence to gayness.

Many different theories can be found regarding the root of homosexuality, as far back historically as Ancient Greece. The current debate is whether or not homosexuality is a result of nature: a person’s environment and surroundings, or of his biology and genetics.

There have been numerous studies designed to determine whether or not homosexuality has a genetic cause. Among the most notable were a series of studies Pillard and J. Michael Bailey, a professor of psychology at Northwestern University, conducted in the early s that found that homosexuality is largely biologically determined, not.

One of the most consistent environmental explanations for homosexuality is called the fraternal birth order effect. Essentially, the more older brothers a man has, the more likely he is to be gay. The effect doesn't hold for older or younger sisters.

Homosexuality - 'being sexually attracted only by members of one's own sex' according to the Oxford Dictionary. Unfortunately, behavioural scientists tell us that this definition is too simplistic. Sexuality is a complex matter: many people are not exclusive in their sexual inclinations.

But they cannot determine the causes of homosexuality based on their analysis. Birds may engage in homosexual behaviour to practice courtship displays, reduce social tension or solidify dominance.

Animal studies have discovered clues to the nature of homosexuality, and proposed theories that include the existence of a “gay gene” that actually causes homosexuality and the possibility of hormone influencing brain development and sexual orientation during the gestation of a fetus (Moalem, ).

Is sexual orientation the result of nature or nurture. To many, the question is irrelevant. Rather than arguing about the causes of homosexuality, they say we should simply accept it and move on. They argue that to identify a cause is to suggest the possibility of a cure, and that detracts from the dignity of the homosexual person.

Nature or nurture. The question of whether homosexuality is something a person is born with, or is due to factors such as upbringing and environment, is frequently debated worldwide, especially in countries (like the United States) where same-sex marriage is a key political issue.
