.....the effect is probably the result of a "maternal memory" in the womb for male births.
A woman's body may see a male foetus as "foreign", he says, prompting an immune reaction which may grow progressively stronger with each male child.

Homosexuals or gays are often the object of ridicule of many societies. Even in this modern age, most still look at the condition as an abnormality, and they try to find a "cure" for it. They often suffer in silence as they grow up, and most try to grin and bear it by becoming professional artists. A select few become closet queens. But if you look more closely, there are more and more gays holding important positions today.
I believe homosexuality is a sexual orientation. In some, it might be a lifestyle choice and in others, there might indeed be a biologic or psychological reason behind it. But I'm not here to look out for a "cure" or a "cause" for them being so; I simply accept their existence like anybody I know.
