A genetic analysis of almost half a million people has concluded there is no single "gay gene".
The study, published in Science, used data from the UK Biobank and 23andMe, and found some genetic variants associated with same-sex relationships.
But genetic factors accounted for, at most, 25% of same-sex behaviour.
Advocacy group GLAAD said the study confirmed "no conclusive degree to which nature or nurture influenced how a gay or lesbian person behaves."
The researchers said thousands more genetic variants likely are involved and interact with factors that aren't inherited, but that none of them cause the behaviour nor can predict whether someone will be gay.
1. Are you aware of this genome research study?
2. Do you think that gender of a person (as opposite to biological sex) is a psychological entity (i.e personality etc.)?
3. If there is no substantial genetic evidence that contributes to someone's homosexual behavior, do you think that the homosexuality has to do more with nurturing of person?
4. Many scientists believe that social, cultural, family and other biological factors are also involved, while some religious groups and skeptics consider it a choice or behaviour that can be changed. Which explanation seems more plausible to you?
social, cultural, family and other biological factors are involved in homosexual behavior
it is a choice or behaviour that can be changed
