Con to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"
“It is particularly unsettling, I think, to speak of heterosexual history, for that history challenges our usual, implicit, deterministic assumption that heterosexuality is fixed, timeless, biological, synonymous with the conjunction of female male organs and acts. To the contrary, I argue, heterosexuality (like homosexuality) has an unheralded, various past, and an open, undetermined future… My social constructionist hypothesis does not, by the way, suggest that heterosexual or homosexual feelings are less real, profound, or legitimate because they are socially constructed, simply that they are not omnipresent, not a biological fate.”
