The theory, which claims homosexuality was caused by a particular gene, did not pass science. According to scientific research, there are multiple factors that play a role in homosexual behavior.
Homosexuality has always been a controversial issue. Some people link the orientation of homosexuals to a gene found in their DNA.
According to a recent study, there are multiple factors affecting homosexual behavior. Experts compare this situation with the factors determining the length. “This research reveals both the importance of genetics and the complexity of genetics, but genetics doesn’t tell the whole story, Ben says Benjamin Neale, a researcher.
A team of international researchers conducted the most comprehensive genetic and homosexuality analysis ever. The first part of the study used the information of 500,000 people who had been with a person of the same sex in the UK.
As a result of the investigations, it is revealed that homosexuality is affected by genetic factors in one third of the population. One of the researchers. Brendan Zietsch said the remaining factors were not just about cultivation or culture. Factors such as hormonal status in the womb play a role in the child’s sexual preferences during the baby’s development process.
Dr. Neale, five genetically active gene variants can establish the relationship between homosexuality, but said that the effect of these variants is very low. According to the researcher, it is not possible to explain sexual orientations based solely on genetic factors.
According to the research, there is a relationship between homosexuality and openness to new experiences and susceptibility to mental illness.
The latest research has frustrated the earlier homosexuality gene theory. The researchers stressed that everyone should be respected, but the reasons for this research cannot be used for discrimination.
