Assuming that there is something biologically different about the gay brain, it would make sense for homosexuality to be more prominent in left-handers. Physiologically, most right-handed brains are cut from the same cloth, as it were, with the major functional areas laid out fairly predictably. Left-handers, on the other hand, have brain maps which differ not only from right handers, but from each other. Apparently, if you have a "normal" brain, you're right-handed; if you're left-handed, that's a sign that your brain is not "normal", and at that point all bets are off. -Marcos
