20. For clarification

 

it's not a gay "gene" according to the latest research.

They're now thinking it has to do with the prenatal environment and the ratio/time of various sex hormones the fetus is exposed to that leads to differences in neural development.

Given that it's environmental like that (in the biological sense) that explains why it was difficult to nail it down to any one gene despite researchers working on the issue for a long time and having a large sample set to work with.
