There are other studies that link environmental toxins to hormonal problems resulting in feminizing males:

Something as complex as human gender and sexuality is deeply deeply unlikely to have any one cause.
Your headline is thus almost certainly completely wrong.
Given that there have been gay people for as long as there have been people [we such activity in
present day Apes and throughout the animal kingdom, and it's been present throughout recorded
history] it might be true that substances that effect foetus development in the womb or even how
a babies brain develops after birth could potentially increase the number of people who are gay.
But it's not going to explain all cases, not by a long-shot...
But, so what if it did...
Such pollutants are already known to be bad and should be prevented from being released into the
environment [which requires regulations, something I know you give your full support to
] and it
still leaves gay people gay without having made any choice on the subject...
But again, so what if it was a choice...
It's a choice they should be free to make without being discriminated against.
It doesn't harm anyone and leads to nothing immoral or worthy of prohibiting...
Unless of course your '"moral" guide' is a personal interpretation of an ancient religious text written
in a dead language by deeply ignorant people.
But that's no way to judge morality, and in your country is an invalid and illegal basis for trying to form laws.
