The point here is simply that there's a correlation between preferred sexual role and gender non-conformity. What the researchers leading this study wanted to look at was how preferred anal sex role and gender non-conformity are linked to one specific biological factor previously shown to be associated with elevated rates of homosexuality in general: Study after study has found that homosexuality—as well as gender non-conformity—are linked to being non-right handed.
This has been taken as evidence in favor of a biological basis for homosexuality, given that handedness is something that is determined in the womb by biological factors. As such, scientists have concluded that whatever it is that's affecting handedness is also affecting sexual orientation.

The bottom and versatile men were grouped together for analyses because it turned out they were extremely similar to one another in handedness and gender non-conformity. The results replicated previous studies in that gay men demonstrated more non-right handedness and reported higher levels of childhood gender non-conformity than straight men.
Tops were still more gender non-conforming on average than straight men, though. This is where things get really interesting: This suggests that gay men's anal sex role preferences are rooted, to some degree, in their biology. Now I am 51 and live in Latin America.

I gotta say I think stereotypes are for the birds. Hi Robert — I just read your comment on the original post and it was a real breath of fresh air. Gay stereotypes exist for a reason. Most feminine gay guys have gender identity disorder but were shamed from wearing womens clothes or doing feminine things as a kid. Without the shame the rest of them will end up Male to Female trans. The rest of the gays had some sort of sexual abuse in early childhood.
