2. What do the behavior genetics research on family influences and the evolutionary explanation of sex differences imply about the amount of influence parental behavior has on how masculine or feminine their sons and daughters become?

3. How much do you think Daryl Bem’s theory of the development of sexual orientation was influenced by scientific evidence, and how much by his own personal feelings? Explain.
