Lesbians’ brains are different... but there’s nothing wrong with that
Study: Lesbians' Brains React Differently

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Lesbians' brains react differently to sex hormones than those of heterosexual women, new research indicates. That's in line with an earlier study that had indicated gay men's brain responses were different from straight men - though the difference for men was more pronounced than has now been found in women.

Lesbians' brains reacted somewhat, though not completely, like those of heterosexual men, a team of Swedish researchers said in Tuesday's edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

A year ago, the same group reported findings for gay men that showed their brain response to hormones was similar to that of heterosexual women…

Each of the three groups of subjects included 12 healthy, unmedicated, right-handed and HIV-negative individuals…[Ed. – So then, how many zonked and diseased lefties were in each group?]
