-His cited study for concurrent SSA in monozygotic twins had a sample size of four. The accepted % correlation that he omitted is much closer to 50%.
-He spends most of his book trying to bury the reader in scientific facts before citing something logically flawed in between as gospel. For example, he lists homosexuality as having a 2.4% incidence rate and says that's too low to be a genetic or epigenetic mutation. Except he compares it solely to deleterious disorders as opposed to more general mutation traits. Homosexuality doesn't have to be a disorder for it to have at least a partial genetic basis.
-Side note on the above point: lots of not so subtle bias on lumping in terrible genetic conditions with homosexuality.
-He badly strawmans current science by making an argument that nobody is trying to make. Homosexuality is currently thought of as a COMBINATION of several factors. It's not genetics or epigenetics or prenatal hormones alone, which are the points he spends a lot of time trying to disprove.
-Oh, and another study he cites uses 13 month olds as data for determining homosexual proclivities. Sorry Dad, Susie touched Johnny's Legos, you've got a lesbian on your hands now.
