I am quite aware that what I am about to say will provoke fury in the gay community.
So, in advance, I would ask that it not be taken as an attack on the personal level (wishful thinking?).
For several years now, I have volunteered as a shelter worker for homeless men.
A very high percentage of our regular guests, those having been transient for long periods of time, were, in their youth, victims of sexual abuse. In
fact, studies have shown that an EXTREMELY STRONG correlation exists between homelessness and a history of sexual abuse.
These men, whom I serve, are indeed the epitome of lost souls. The majority of them have completely withdrawn from society; they are distrustful of
authority figures; suspicious of people's motives in general; they engage is highly risky and self-destructive behaviour; they have lost most if not
all their ambition and self-esteem. It is as if they haved exiled themselves forever in a self-imposed protectorate: isolationism is their sanctuary.
These men are incapable of forming and maintaining relationships. Abuse has resulted in their utter emasculation.
If we are to be completely honest with ourselves as a society, research demonstrates that the roots of homosexuality lie in:
a) children having been raised in homes lacking the presence of a strong father figure;
b) children and teens having been the victims sexual abuse committed by a (usually trusted) older male;
c) children having been raised in a household composed of two gay parents
Our attitudes today regarding homosexuality have for the most part been shaped by acceptance of Alfred Kinsey's studies on human sexuality in the
1940s and 1950s. Kinsey proposed the notion of a Heterosexual-Homosexual Rating Scale, suggesting that no one is exclusively homosexual or
heterosexual but instead a person's sexuality lies somewhere in between. It is not surprising to discover an inherent bias in Kinsey's work
considering the man himself was a prolific bisexual.
Before the pro-gay contingent screams bloody murder claiming (once again) that homosexuality does not equate pedophilia, I would ask those who call
themselves, "gay" to objectively calculate how many in their community are the products of single-parent homes and/or survivors of sexual abuse. Are
there more incidents than what is statistically probable?
As a reminder, I personally bear no ill will toward homosexuals. It is just my belief that becoming, "gay", is simply a coping mechanism employed by
those who had been deprived of strong father figures during their childhood or by those, like our homeless friends, who had been unfortunate victims
of sexual abuse while in their formative years.
