What is the most likely hypothesis for the cause of homosexuality?

Those that experts believe most, preferably place sources.

Update:

Anonymous, I asked what is the cause of homosexuality. Not how incels are made.

    Most likely it's an enduring genetic variant of unknown nature, biologically pointless, but of no consequential impediment to survival of the species. Possibly it is intended as a buffer, a societal resource unencumbered by the demands of childbearing, akin to worker bees.

    The same as the most likely hypothesis for the cause of heterosexuality. In other words, no-one knows. No do we need to know to get on with living our lives.

    Sexually Antagonistic Selection.

    https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.13...

    In layman terms, male homosexuality being genetic from the mother because it's linked to FEMALE fertility.

    This doesn't explain lesbians, of course they don't have Y chromosomes.

    Source(s): edit: Of course heterosexuality has a cause/reason-- the propagation of the species.

    1. Unresolved Oedipus complex.

    2. Lack of available women(as some user suggested already).

    The rest is subjective really.

    Nobody knows. It may be a combination of biology and environment

    Nobody knows for certain. It just is what it is. We are what we are meant to be. Just be yourself.
