What If "The Science Is Settled" In A Way We Don't Like?

From this article I haven't read anything other than the following three paragraphs:
A major new report, published today in the journal The New Atlantis, challenges the leading narratives that the media has pushed regarding sexual orientation and gender identity.

Co-authored by two of the nation’s leading scholars on mental health and sexuality, the 143-page report discusses over 200 peer-reviewed studies in the biological, psychological, and social sciences, painstakingly documenting what scientific research shows and does not show about sexuality and gender.

The major takeaway, as the editor of the journal explains, is that “some of the most frequently heard claims about sexuality and gender are not supported by scientific evidence.”
That's certainly attention-grabbing.

The authors have impressive credentials, which makes me wonder why they chose this particular venue for publishing their work.  Would no one else take it, out of political correctness?  Or are there obvious flaws that the link above ignores?  Inquiring minds want to know.
