Sexual arousal and masculinity-femininity of women.

Is Transgendered Male Androphilia Familial in Non-Western Populations? The Case of a Samoan Village
TLDR
The present study indicated that transgendered male androphilia is familial in this particular Samoan village, thus adding to a growing literature demonstrating that male andphilia and gender atypicality have consistent developmental correlates across populations.

TLDR
Investigation of pedigree and linkage analyses on 114 families of homosexual men found increased rates of same-sex orientation were found in the maternal uncles and male cousins of these subjects, but not in their fathers or paternal relatives, suggesting the possibility of sex-linked transmission in a portion of the population.
