He didn't say that if you smoke your child will be gay. He suggested that homosexuality may be more common because of smoking while pregnant. And I can't believe you're comparing gays to dogs. They're very much human, just like us.
Then let me try to keep this short. This is not contrary to the assumptions neuroscience make today, and no one has so far presented any evidence suggesting it is. My painfully obvious point, that seem to elude you guys, is that the criticism presented in this thread is unwarranted.
I agree that the reason may be correct, but there's a difference between making arbitrary statements based on the oldest case of Chinese whispers and making qualified statements withing the field you've been researching for decades.
I guess you didn't, so let me rephrase my question if semantics are so important to you: what qualifies you to disregard this study?
Well, I did not say that. Besides, I read the article to, so you're really pushing it if that was what made you not sound like an eight year old. What I did say...
I have not blindly followed Dick Swaab, nor have I said I believe this to be true. I have simply discredited your statements, much like you try to discredit statements I have not made.

Which you failed to mention before now - you've only referred to his name.
Here's his CV:
Although you could have just checked the wiki-page, and you would have gotten a picture of what he's been up to
How so? I was...
no it's not. this guy is one of the worlds more prominent scientists in his area, and knows more about the human brain than 99,99999% of the worlds population
