Terrance Williams, PhD Biography

Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of California at Los Angeles
Pro to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"

“Prenatal androgens may therefore influence adult human sexual orientation in both sexes, and a mother’s body appears to ‘remember’ previously carried sons, altering the fetal development of subsequent sons and increasing the likelihood of homosexuality in adulthood.”
