I'm Mozel Estrera from Philippines and studying in Adamson University, I would like to join this group because I want to improve my knowledge about the behavior of the people and what and why they act like that. I'm a Mass communication student, and as a communicator I should know the different behavior of the people in my environment. i want to know also the life cycle of a man from the womb up to the adulthood. how can a baby moved inside the womb of the mother. how does adolescence act something horrible when they reach that age? and how do our mind work? n recent decades, many hotly debated topics have come under the scrutiny of sociobiologists, trying to determine their causation and origins. One such topic is homosexuality. Originally thought by the American Psychological Association (hereafter referred to as APA) to be a mental disorder, research into its causes, origins, and development have consequently led to its removal by the APA from its list of diagnoses and disorders [1]. Many different theories can be found regarding the root of homosexuality, as far back historically as Ancient Greece. The current debate is whether or not homosexuality is a result of nature: a person's environment and surroundings, or of his biology and genetics. The debate endures because both sides have the ability to create a scientific environment to support their cause. For example, biological theorists may argue that a monkey and human child, reared in the same setting, will develop with vastly different outcomes, while social theorists may argue that monozygotic twins, one reared normally and the other raised in seclusion for 18 years, will also develop with vastly different results, but different even more from the first scenario [4
