In the world of today there are the homosexuals and the heterosexuals who are forming a part of our society. Although met initially with resistance the society is gradually accepting that the homosexuals are a part of our society and are not going anywhere. Diversity in sexual orientation has been a subject that has been seen in different perspectives by the different people (LeVay, 2010). While some of the homosexuals are of the perception that their condition is one that is inbuilt and they are naturally born with it, other people feel that this is an adopted thing which the peoples' input in their minds by themselves (LeVay &Valente, 2006).

[...] What factors seem most important in the development of sexual orientation(s)? There are a number of factors that LeVay highlights as important in the development of the human sexual orientation (LeVay &Valente, 2006). His studies focused on the hormones, parents and genes and the roles that they play in the determination of the sexual orientation. His focus also concentrated in the brain and how it contributes to the differences in the sexual orientation and how the differences can be determined using the brain (LeVay, 2010). [...]


[...] Genes are ;lements that flow between the parents and their children something that forms the basis for the argument developed by LeVay that perhaps it is the retention of some of the genes of the preceeding children in the womb of the mother that are passed to the latter children and hence the homosexual attributes and traits. Based on the evidence, are there differences in the development of sexual orientation in males and females? There are differences in the development of the sexual orientation of the males and the females something that is attributed to the difference in the size of INAH3 of the hypothalamus part of the brain (LeVay, 2010).

[...] Diversity in sexual orientation has been a subject that has been seen in different perspectives by the different people (LeVay, 2010). While some of the homosexuals are of the perception that their condition is one that is inbuilt and they are naturally born with it, other people feel that this is an adopted thing which the peoples' input in their minds by themselves (LeVay &Valente, 2006). It is therefore a subject that has elicited a lot of debate and controversies, especially with the numerous scientific researches that has been done by the different scientists. [...]


[...] This points out to the fact that sexual orientation is also something that is determined by the environment. In making this conclusion the ideas is that the more positive the surrounding environment, the better it is for the people in the environment. More straight people can be found in environments with more women than in environments where there are more men, but women are scarce (LeVay &Valente, 2006). This may trigger the homosexual relationships which may be opted into fill the void introduced by the absence of women. [...]
