If you all you know about gender and sexuality comes from reading headlines, it’s an open and shut case. “‘Gay genes’: science is on the right track, we’re born this way. Let’s deal with it.”“Science Just Proved That Being Transgender Is Not a Phase”. “The DNA test ‘that reveals if you’re gay’” “Check the science: being trans is not a ‘choice’”. “Transgender Identity Is Not a Mental Health Disorder, Study Finds.” “Born This Way? Scientists may have found a biological basis for homosexuality.”
So the nature of homosexuality and transsexualism is settled, incontrovertible, and beyond dispute? Yes, but only in newspapers, not in academia.
