One exception to the lack of interest in the details of what exactly gays are born with was a 60 Minutes piece in 2006 on the "Science Of Sexual Orientation." Intrepid reporter Leslie Stahl profiled two sets of identical twins to illustrate the overlap of sexual orientation and gendered traits. But why is Leslie Stahl bothering small children whose gender and interests don't conform to societal expectations?The first of two sets of twins: The bedrooms of 9-year-old twins Adam and Jared couldn't be more different. And then that's where I keep all the guns for 'em," he explained. Because childhood gender expression relates to adult sexual orientation in that the former predicts the latter: a feminine boy, more often than not, grows up to become a gay man.The first raters judged targets' sexual orientations from unedited videos and from partial information extracted from the videos (e.g., video without sound for ratings of movement or sound without picture for ratings of speech).The results: 87% of heterosexual targets and 75% of homosexual targets were accurately judged.Sometimes the joke is that, even in such an incredibly narrow category, the thing being discussed isn't first.
Science, though, is late to linking sexuality with gender expression.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!Even a cursory review of the science tells us that gays indeed are born that way.
But there's an important caveat that the gay activists don't mention when trumpeting this good news.The science ties sexual orientation to gender, the sense of being masculine or feminine.
