Gay Brain Shows Gender Atypical Traits ~ Asymmetry Seen in Straight Men, Gay Women

Note from Health Lover, Ilena Rosenthal
To this day, there is still much to know about health and sexuality ... and open minds and hearts are an answer.

To this day, there is way, way, way too much homophobia in this wo
rld ~ passive to blatant and everything in between.

Bravo to these scientists for really studying this important issue. Here in California there is a recent Supreme Court ruling allowing gay marriages ~ a topic that still divides families and creates less love between them.

"Nothing about the left and right brain has anything to do with sexuality, he says. "The preponderance of research argues rather strongly for a common biological process that is contributing not only to sexual orientation, but to other things as well." More here.
