Contrast the Biological Differences between
Heterosexual Males and Homosexual Males
Tavis Ryan King
Discussion regarding the biological differences between heterosexual males and homosexual males is challenging. Unlike studying sexual differences between men and women, the contrasting points tend to be difficult to detect. However, research has discovered biological differences in the fields of biology, genetics, and psychology that could be indicative of differences. What is more difficult than finding these trends though, is explaining their aetiology. As a result, much of the discussion to explain biological differences goes back to the developmental causes of homosexual behaviour that are not yet solidly founded due to ethical (e.g. experimenting on a neonate) or technological limitations. Irrespective of this, the aim of this paper is to first explain how the development of heterosexual men and homosexual men differ based on the effects of hormones during neonatal development, brain development, genetic make-up and birth order. These four concepts are related and researchers from these approaches often cite one another in their studies. Lastly, sexually dimorphic patterns typically seen differentiating men and women also appear as a contrast between heterosexual men and homosexual men. These trends will be discussed
