Scientific American reported a later study to Hamer's. It was one out of about 20 something reports btw

Peer review is not a perfect system. Remember what was done to Dr. Semmelweis by his own peers.
Alfred Kinsey falsified data to promote a personal agenda too.

The original study conducted in 1993 was done by an openly "gay" activist and researcher Dr. Dean Hamer of the of the National Cancer Institute was what I was commenting on.

There was a later study that replicated Hamer's discrediting the 1993 study. This was done by the Department of Clinical Neurological Sciences at the University of Western Ontario and the Department of Genetics at Stanford Medical School concluded that "data do not support the presence of a gene of large effect influencing sexual orientation."

Dr. Richard Pillard, a professor of psychiatry at Boston University's School of Medicine, did twin studies showing "that sexuality is greatly influenced by environment, and that the role of genetics is, in the end, limited."

American Psychiatric Association's Fact Sheet on Sexual Orientation (2000): "There are no replicated scientific studies supporting any specific biological etiology for homosexuality". I realize this is earlier though.

I say the medical jury is still out.
