homosexuals abused as children???

I read on another post that someone had stated that studies showed most homosexuals had been abused as children. I've never heard this theory before- have you??

  • Yeah, I'm HEARD it... But it's crap! Children who are abused (sexually or otherwise) are more likely to be abusers, however, they are no more likely than anyone else to be homosexual, bisexual, transexaul or straight... Actual medical studies have proven that sexuality is inherent from birth... It's about brain chemistry and hormone production, not whether or not someone was abused.

  • I don't know that they were abused. But I will say I have three gay male friends, and I will say each of them have some pretty serious issues as a human being. Not being accepted, lack of approval from family, accepting themselves, some substance abuse etc. But I think society has laid a lot of that on them. I don't think it was because they were abused.

  • I think it could be the exception and not the rule. I've pondered this myself. MANY gay guys I know fall into this category. But obviously, not all.

  • You wanna hear something else stupid my husband thinks that homosexuals have a genetic deficit. LOL my husband probably would love to find the gene missing in the bald factor.. Oh well some people are stupid that way.
