Meyer-Bahlburg, Heino F. L.; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v31 n1 p12-21 Jan 1995
Examines the hypothesis that prenatal estrogens contribute to the development of human sexual orientation. Several groups of women with a history of prenatal exposure to diethylstilbestrol (DES) were compared with several samples of control women. Findings showed that more DES-exposed women than controls were rated as bisexual or homosexual, according to Kinsey-format scales. (MDM)
