Seriously, though, soy products (that aren’t fermented) do contain high levels of phyto-estrogens, which are analogous to the female hormone estrogen. Studies are mixed as to the effects of soybeans’ chemicals and metabolites on infants, as well as on adults. But none of them point to a link between soy and homosexuality.

If you’re leery of soy formula’s possible effects on babies (and want to give your baby the best start all around), stick to breastfeeding.
