My mother was arguing with my that gay is in your genes so if one person is gay in your family it can be passed down to another family member like some sort of disease/disorder. She claimed there is medical proof out there and just need to "google" it. (she is one of those that she believes everything she reads)
So aside from research that you may know is out there. What do you personally think?
No there is no "Gay gene" like there are genes for blue eyes, or brown hair. Rather it is a development of neurological wiring, or the manner in which the brain develops and makes connections as well as hormone levels.
