An Editorial regarding the thyroid-homosexuality proposal article

An Editorial entitled "A Link Between Maternal Thyroid Hormone and Sexual Orientation?" has been published in the journal Mental Illness regarding the thyroid-homosexuality proposal article.

The author Jeffrey Mullen, from the University of California, Irvine, briefly summerizes the article and concludes: "...Whether or not maternal thyroid dysfunction causes homosexuality, this study presents data that strongly suggest that there is an association between the two. Though past research has not been able to attribute a single factor to the development of sexual orientation, future research may find additional contributing factors. Ultimately, this study has made a very compelling point concerning the very nature of gender nonconformity and sexual orientation. Those findings will likely prove to be important to our understanding of the topic, and will serve as a point of reference from which future research will be directed."
