To put another way, even pro-gay researchers have found that under controlled experiments some well-known stereotypes about effeminate gay men contain at least a "kernel of truth." While confirmation of these stereotypes goes relatively unmentioned in most of the press, this gay effeminacy is foundational to the conclusion that gay men are born that way.The prevailing theory is simple: "Differences in levels of circulating sex hormones [of the fetus] usually testosterone during one or more critical periods of development cause the brain to develop in a more-male-like or more female-like direction, and these differences influence a spectrum of gendered traits in juvenile life and adulthood, including the preference for male and female sex partners." More simply, prenatal hormones circulating in the mother's womb influence the sexual orientation of the fetus.As a child, the Urning manifests an entirely unmistakable inclination toward girls' occupations, toward the company of girls, toward playing with girls' toys, especially dolls.How terribly lamentable to such a child that it is not the custom for boys to play with dolls, that Santa Claus will not bring him any dolls, too, and that he is forbidden to play with his sister's dolls!There too the gay twin was visibly more effeminate in both speech and dainty hand movements. To test the accuracy of the so-called gaydar, premised on the idea of gendered traits distinguishing gays, some members of the previously mentioned Northwestern University group did another study using videos, this time using only adults: We videotaped homosexual and heterosexual men and women answering an interview question about their interests.We then recruited two additional sets of participants to rate various aspects of brief excerpts from these interviews.The raters found that "prehomosexual children were significantly more gender nonconforming than preheterosexual children" and that these differences persisted into adulthood.
A contemporary witness: "they rather fancy themselves as women, imitating all the little vanities that custom has reconciled to the female sex, affecting to speak, walk, tattle, curtsy, cry, scold, and to mimic all the manner of effeminacy that ever has fallen within their several observations." Historical examples of possibly gay men include the Greek/Roman kinaidos/cinaedi and Native American berdaches.Of course, there's nothing shocking about any of these.They merely confirm what most of us have instinctively suspected and experienced.The former were thought of as effeminate not just because they took the receptive role in anal sex, but because they were also feminine in dress and manner.Both give credence to the idea that gays exists outside of our culture.
Simon Le Vay's research has found that the size of INAH3 in gay men mirrors that of women, while straight men's are considerably larger than both.
