    could be a combination of biology and environment for
    most folks.

    Not 'why would you (corvo) assert that' - that too - but why would it be so? For example, I'm a straight male, and I see that as a tacit trait determined exclusively by biology.

    As a personal example of a 'combination' trait, my academic background is physics and math - that is, to me, clearly a product of biology (I'm wired that way) and of environment - academic opportunity, reward, encouragement, etc.

    But I simply cannot imagine any exogenous forces that would alter my (biological, I'm assuming) attraction to females.

    And I think that it is the same way for everyone, regardless of the sex/gender that they are attracted to.
