without the benefit of actual scientific inquiry

I am also unaware of any study that establishes a propensity in gay men to become hairdressers and fashion designers.

Do you really need a formal study for that ? Just walk into a couple of hair salons. It's quite obvious. Also, having been on dozens of plane trips, I yet have to meet a straight male flight attendant.

That's not terribly interesting. The question you should be asking now is "why".

Because higher levels of testosterone influence the brain to optimize for things that are good for doing science.

Fortunately, we have zillions of studies that indicate it's a social, not a biological, consequence

How do these studies explain why so many gay men go into hairdressing and fashion design ? Because society pushed them ?
