New study reveals that pregnant women who suffer stress, smoke & take drugs may give birth to homosexual children

Dick-Swaab-on-Heterosexuality-and-Homosexuality-January-2014-BellaNaija-600x457Well, mothers, it’s your fault.

At least, that’s what the new study conducted by Dutch neuroscientist Dick Swaab is saying.

The scientist is currently making headlines for his recent controversial statement. In his new book, We are Our Brains, Dick claims that women who suffer stress during pregnancy increase the chance of their child being gay. Smoking and taking drugs can also result to “altering the child’s heterosexuality”.

Professor Swaab reveals that the lifestyle of pregnant women alters hormones and the formation of their unborn children’s brains, thereby affecting their sexuality.

He also believes that the sexuality of a child is determined in the womb and not a lifestyle choice. He says:

“Although it’s frequently assumed that development after birth also importantly affects our sexual orientation, there’s no proof of this whatsoever. Children brought up by lesbians aren’t more likely to be homosexual. Nor is there any evidence at all for the misconception that homosexuality is a “lifestyle choice.”

Dick Swaab, 69, who is based at the University of Amsterdam, also states that “the more older brothers a boy has, the greater the chance that he will be homosexual.”

What are your thoughts?

    He actually needs his brains checked! I dunno if senile plaques have occluded his stream of reasoning or he’s just a mere-confused-old-jimbo seeking notable attention

    Well I’ll be dammed.
    Questions some mothers will have to answer at the pearly gates.
    “While pregnant, did you do any of the following?
    1) Smoke
    2) Take xtasy, blow, ganja or whatever name it went by in your day
    3) Take drugs to battle stress

    If the answer is Yes to all the questions, find your homosexual son and go rot in hell.”

    Wait a minute, his name is Dick Swaab? Seriously? Lmao!!!!!!! Oh the bullying he must have gone through, the jabs, verbal insults. With a name like that he was attracted to the male organ. Poor boy probably blamed his mother and the result is this, a research to say bad mothers make their son gay.
