Study: Exposing a pregnant rat to stress can alter testosterone levels that lead to brain masculinization. Many more offspring exhibit homosexual behavior. (Quartz, Steven R., PhD, and Terrence J. Sejnowski, PhD. Liars, Lovers, and Heroes. p 164-165. NY: HarperCollins Publishers Inc., 2002.)

There is a connection between maternal stress (e.g., associated with insufficient amounts of androgen to the fetus) and sexual preference. Effects of stress to developing fetuses can be episodically epidemic (e.g., war, abandonment) especially if events contribute to stress between the 16-26th weeks of gestation. (Joy, Donald, PhD. The Innate Differences Between Males & Females (Audio Cassette). CO: Focus on the Family, 1967.)

Contributors to the development of homosexuality may include: Direct alteration of hormones during fetal development, use of drugs that impact androgens (e.g., Depo-Provera, diazepam, marijuana), maternal severe emotional stress (stress hormones may cross the placenta and interfere with testosterone production in the baby), immune reaction against chemicals necessary for sexual differentiation. (Wilson, Glenn. The Great Sex Divide. p 78-80. England: Peter Owen Publishers, 1989.)
