no, if a "normal" fetus was determined to be female or male, both the brain and body would corralate and be the same.  I am just referring to the cases where a fetus may present with normal genitalia, but evolve behaviourally as if they are the opposite sex, or are attracted to the same sex.  

Most people who are heterosexual, will begin to be attracted to the opposite sex around puberty.  What sets this off is a sequence of hormonal, neurophysiological, and metabollic changes.  If a female were to have a more "male" like brain,  areas in the brain responsible for sexual attraction have evolved to behave more masculin.  Thus the attraction to other women will occur.

To assume the female can"change" the intricate nature of this system to all of a sudden be attracted to males, would be like asking someone to change their DNA. 

I only compared it to cancer and alzheimers because I wanted others to imagine how difficult it would be to "choose" it to go away and be more normal.

Although homosexuality is not a disease, its origins are imprinted in our DNA just as other attributes, like disease, personalily, physical appearance and so on.
