Editors of the New Atlantis, a scholarly journal "devoted to science and technology issues and their relation to social and political affairs," are defending two authors against an onslaught of gay accusations.
A review of research studies and scientific literature on homosexuality summarized by Dr. Lawrence S. Mayer and Dr. Paul R. McHugh, entitled “Sexuality and Gender: Findings from the Biological, Psychological, and Social Sciences,” has come under vehement condemnation by the pro-homosexual advocacy group, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC).
Dr. Mayer is a scholar in residence in the Department of Psychiatry and Dr. McHugh is University distinguished professor of psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
According to its website, the Human Rights Campaign is "the largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer" (LGBTQ) gay activist organization and political lobbying group in the United States, claiming 1.5 million members and a budget of $49 million annually.
In August, the New Atlantis published Mayer and McHugh's study, which "examin(ed) research from the biological, psychological, and social sciences" and concluded that "some of the most frequently heard claims about sexuality and gender are not supported by scientific evidence."
