Depends on what level of explanation we're working on. If we're talking about why a certain individual is heterosexual rather than homo- or bisexual, well obviously yes. I couldn't very well argue that not being hetero might have gender-specific reasons while being it does not have? If we're talking about why heterosexuality exists, then the reason is the same for both genders - transmission of genes to the next generation.

I don't see what you are getting at hear. As you seem inclined to disbelieve their data on men, I certainly do not expect you to consider their data on women more reliable. Andreas
