Environment and sexual orientation
The study of the environment and sexual orientation is research into possible environmental influences on the development of human sexual orientation. Some researchers distinguish environmental influences from hormonal influences, while others include biological influences such as prenatal hormones as part of environmental influences.Sexual orientation is theorized as possibly being a combination of genetic, hormonal, and environmental influences, or simply a complex combination of nature and nurture. The American Psychological Association and Royal College of Psychiatrists acknowledge scientific theories that sexual orientation is caused by a combination of biological and postnatal environmental factors, but the American Psychological Association adds that despite much research into the genetic, hormonal, developmental, social, and cultural influences on sexual orientation, ""no findings have emerged that permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factor or factors."" Scientific consensus is that sexual orientation, unlike sexual orientation identity, is not a choice, as there has been no strong evidence to validate it as a lifestyle choice.Although there is no substantial evidence which suggests parenting or early childhood experiences play a role in sexual orientation, some studies have linked parenting or familial environment to non-heterosexual identities, as well as childhood gender nonconformity and homosexuality.
