Tom Moon, MFT Biography

Title:
Psychotherapist
Position:
Pro to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"
Reasoning:

“As with left-handedness, the sexual orientation of adopted children bears no relationship to that of adopted parents, clearly pointing to its biological origins. The twin studies show that twins share the trait of homosexuality more frequently than they do left-handedness, suggesting that genetics plays an even greater role in sexual orientation than in handedness.”
