Stephen O. Murray, PhD Biography

Title:
Comparative Sociologist
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"
Reasoning:

“I think that it [sexual orientation] is set by age 1, so my answer to the question as posed is an uninteresting ‘maybe.’ Those of us who testify as experts in court rarely answer ‘yes/no’ questions ‘yes’ or ‘no.'”
