Chicago study of 1,000 gay brothers

Researchers in Chicago have recruited 1,000 pairs of gay brothers in the most ambitious study to date of genetics and sexual orientation. Praise and criticism are already pouring in for the researchers who have just begun analyzing blood and saliva samples taken from the 2,000 men. The goal is to determine how great a part, if any, genes play in determining sexual orientation.

Remark 1: another study of gay men. what about the ladies?

Remark 2: one of the study's critics is Stanton Jones, a professor at Wheaton College and co-author of a recent book on sexual reorientation therapy.
