Yeah, I noted those key absolutist words like "may" and the huge numbers of research subjects - 36. I think this conclusively proves that a hint in a minor study can be blown out of proportion. As in this proves that in the 1% population of American women who are lesbian, say about 2.2 million there is a biological basis. Or, does it mean that somebody should have a whole lot of people do a sniff test under double-blinded, randomized clinical trials before acting like this means anything? Note the wonderful tag line that this means that one should be open to the possibility that there may be some biological basis. Bet I see this as proof of biological basis at Entmoot within 24 hours, Lirio! :question:

Well, we already know that they play accoustic guitar better than straight women.

Gotta be some science behind that.

AP reports 'gay brain' study incorrectly

May 10, 2006

By Robert Knight
WorldNetDaily.com

A new and widely reported Swedish study that suggests that lesbians respond differently from heterosexual women when exposed to sex hormones has been seriously misinterpreted, one of the researchers says.

The Associated Press story noted that a similar study was done last year on men, and that with the new female study, "the findings add weight to the idea that homosexuality has a physical basis and is not learned behavior."

In response to an e-mail inquiry from Grove City College Professor of Psychology Dr. Warren Throckmortion, researcher Dr. Ivanka Savic of the Stockholm Brain Institute said of the AP interpretation of her work, "This is incorrect and not stated in the paper."

The study was published in the May 9, 2006, edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, although the link to the piece was not available at the academy's website as of yesterday.
