I imagine a new fight over this one. There may be a cure for ambiguous genitalia but now they seem to think they can extend that cure to homosexuality, prevent girls from being interested in boy things and vice versa.
I can see the yelling starting up now.
the New York-based group of clinical researchers whose work is traced by Dreger and Feder suggest that prenatal dexamethasone can also be used in this population to prevent the "abnormality" of homosexuality, as well as the "abnormal" interest these girls tend to have in traditionally masculine careers and hobbies.

I don't believe the Religious Right is responsible for the scientific study mentioned at the start of this thread. How things jump from "gay _______" to "Religious Right bashing" always amuses me.

Originally posted by PinkFloydYou can't trust such a university to be unbiased. Just like researchers who used to say smoking isn't that bad for you, I guess you can figure out who is covering their payroll.

Who else is trying to "cure" women of wanting to work in traditionally male jobs?

clearly sounds like junk science promoted by someone with an agenda.
also reminds me of experiments that the Nazis did...trying to prove this, that or the other thing about the various crazy ideas in their heads.
I don't think there is a single mainstream scientist who holds this view.
And if folks wanted to verify that, I think they could conta ...[text shortened]... be attracted to your wife.
Of course, there is a pill like that (it is called marriage)....
