Mary Margaret "Maggie" Stone is a fictional character from the American daytime drama All My Children.
Magazine Soaps in Depth asked the question of Van Cagle, a Director Of Research for GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation).
"Oh, my gosh, I was so afraid about that," she said.
"I was trying to go for something completely different, but the problem was that the writers left it so ambiguous; the character was such a blank slate.
"There is scant research on this [subject]," said Cagle.
He cited a 1991 study by Northwestern University professor Michael Bailey that found among female identical twins, one gay twin raised the likelihood of the other being gay to 48 percent, compared to fraternal twins, whose likelihood was only 12 percent.
