Subject: (urth) For Matthew: references for sexuality

Hey Matthew, there are a TON of different places that comment on this.  The 
easiest way to get a good (understandable no matter what your background in 
hormones and genetics) sample is to go to http://www.google.com and type in 
"Finger length and sexuality" as a search.  You will find a ton of stuff. It 
is, of course, controversial, then look up "Womb memory and sexuality".  There 
are the original scholarly journals which are a bit too complicated for most 
people, but they are summarized nicely in the news articles on them.  Check it 
out!  In my undergraduate education, we made "fruity" fruit flies - a spliced 
gene can make male fruit flies mount other male fruit flies.  Of course, as a 
Catholic, I believe in free will no matter what proclivity we may have, but I 
do accept that we cannot choose many innate things, and that who we are 
attracted to is not something we can really choose, and is therefore not an 
act of exercising free will. You should be able to find the basic research on 
the net if you want to.
