Frequently Asked Questions
How do you choose what to report?
I follow Entrez Pubmed, a free public database containing most medical and biological research. Entrez Pubmed is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, your tax dollar sponsored premier research institute.
I also use Science Direct, Highwire and Faculty of 1000 as sources of legitimate research.
I prefer studies that show hard data over subjects opinions and I prefer studies that are peer reviewed and published in respected, credible scientific journals. I also prefer studies that are not sponsored by any special interest group, on either “side”.
You may see studies that conflict. That’s because it has been difficult to know what factors play a role in sexual orientation. Conflicting studies almost always result from not collecting the same type of data, differences in test subjects and testing methods, or small sample sizes.
Why are some publications older?
As I build the site, I’m publishing oldies but goodies. Studies that provide the foundation for the current research. I will also be including what is new. But sometimes it helps to understand prior research.
