    Hmmmm, interesting, though I'm still not sold on this. I'm trying to find out more about these studies and if they are in fact true, an option I'm surely open to accepting, then what say you about people with different brain structures attributing to other traits?

    Not sure what you are trying to ask here.

    I'm pretty sure i don't think like a woman.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    And its already been exposed as a fraud since the scientist herself who conducted the study admitted she can't be sure its related to sexual orientation.

    That's also on the thread

    You have a source? I am not seeing anything that backs up this claim of yours either, which seems to be a pattern. There is no way to know for sure the reason, but there is a definite correlation, which is what I am claiming.

    And how you doing sourcing your claim that gays "are not created, to believe so is a fallacy"?

    haha Now that I'm reading it, it makes less sense...but I guess I was trying to ask if similar brain structures between 'different' people is enough to afford them special rights or protections rather than just everyone accepting that they aren't really all that different, kind of like race. I dunno, it makes less sense to me now

    Also, here's what I found about the study (I closed the window before I got the link but it was from a Gay and Lesbian site in the UK): "The Wellcome Trust Centre for neuro-imaging at University College London used magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI to look into the brains of 80 men and women, including 16 gays and 15 lesbians."

    Not to sound pessimistic, but that doesn't seem like a large enough sample and doesn't show what percentage of the homosexual men and women actually displayed these traits or if all of them did. Even in such a small sample, this experiment should probably be done again on a larger scale and with more constants taken into consideration (but again I can't find the specific results, just what has been posted) And while the publishing companies of the links you sent me seem clean and objective, as do their parent companies, they don't provide all that much information other than the one with 6 MRI shots...not very compelling evidence for me...

    Two different replies.
    That is because you are different.

    Maybe you should start?

    No, I cannot see special rights or protections for any one. I believe in equal rights for all(with the obvious exception of those who are convicted of crimes).

    Also, here's what I found about the study (I closed the window before I got the link but it was from a Gay and Lesbian site in the UK): "The Wellcome Trust Centre for neuro-imaging at University College London used magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI to look into the brains of 80 men and women, including 16 gays and 15 lesbians."

    The study I linked to was 25 hetero and 20 homosexuals of each gender, and does not provide a number of "matches" I guess would be the best word for it. I am hopeful that there is a statically meaningful number of "matches", or this study should never have been published. New Scientist is well regarded and I doubt the article would have been published if the results where not statistically meaningful. Take that for what it is worth.

    That is not what the results would mean. I believe that thinking as a man/women would have as much or more to do with hormones and brain structure.
