Outraged Greeks Say Alexander Was Not Bisexual

That would be news to me. Most ancient Greeks, at least in the upper classes, had both a wife and a boy (just came of age, 13ish or so). That is what I learned in my history of Philosophy class. But hey, what do I know.

This factoid made me think that sexuality isn't as completely genetic as we'd like to think. There are a lot of environmental factors. That doesn't mean sexuality is chosen per se. But it is more complex than genes = sexuality.
