  • There is one brain part, called the anterior commisure, that's bigger in gay men's brains than in those of heterosexual males. It connects two structures together. The amygdala on each side of the brain. The amygdala effects emotion right side fear for example left side love for example. The amygdala does an important kind of recognition, too. It recognizes other people, or more importantly, how they're feeling. It responds to facial expressions, tones of voice,etc. etc. It is believed to also help decide who you are attracted to. It is being labeled as a genetic defect in the brain.

  • For the majority of people it is genetic. However, there are a few who choose it. It sounds odd but is true.
