Smoking, drinking or doing drugs during pregnancy makes for a “Gay” baby?

January 19, 2014

A controversial new study claims that decisions made by women when they are pregnant can affect their babies brains including determining their sexuality, intelligence and chances of developing autism.

The suggestion that the lifestyle of an expectant mother can affect their offspring’s development has  been put forward in Professor Dick Swaab’s new book We Are Our Brains.

The professor of  neurology at Amsterdam University claims that the chance of having a child who is gay can be determined by a range of factors including how stressed pregnant women are as well as whether they smoke and their exposure to amphetamines.

    Could be.

    Let’s let Prof. Swaab develop his findings and present them to his peers…without the filter of PC intolerance.

    This is what science does; inquire.

    This won’t get much more press.

    It’s a shame. If environmental factors during pregnancy can shape a person’s body and mind, why not sexuality?

    The reason why there won’t be much more press is because findings like this give too much red meat to both sides.

    Think about it. One side touts the evidence saying that homosexuality is hardwired. The other will counter by saying the same evidence shows that it’s a birth defect.

    Am I the only one laughing that this idiot is saying that poor lifestyle choices may make the baby gay and that this idiots name is Dick Swaab. Sounds like he has some experioence ;P
