    This may be purely anecdotal evidence but it has been my experience that most gay people that I know were raised in abusive homes.

    These abusive families may include:

    unstable parents who randomly beat and/or belittle their children,

    sexual abuse by a family member, relative or friend of the family,

    dominant parent who abuses a passive parent in front of the children,

    parent who abuses one child while she/he favors another,

    dominant mother and passive father

    Does anyone else have gay friends or relatives that suffered this type of abuse during early childhood?

    WinterBorn, What about other gay people that you know besides your own family. Does anything that I wrote sound familiar?

    Purely IMO, but a lot of homosexual adolescents are abused because of the fact they are homosexual. Parent's and family members think they can beat it out of them physically or verbally. There may be a certain portion where the reverse is true, ie a child was sexually abused and later turned out homosexual. But to my understanding that doesn't happen often and is usually sensationalized by shows like Law and Order.

    As for all the homosexual people I know, they all grew up in loving families.

    If just one person was gay who was not raised in an abusive family, that would mean that another factor is likely at play. There are plenty of gay people not raised in abusive families.

    Stop underming garyganu's thread!

    Now, Winterborn. Does anything mentioned by the op sound familiar. GGanu is trying to prove that homosexuality is a result of a dysfunctional home. Don't most gays you know come from a dysfunctional home?

    I think when you claim "most" you need more than anecdotal evidence.

    Fags and lessies are different. What's true for one may not be true for another. Lessies tend to be driven by feminism and fags tend to be driven by abuse. No researcher today would be allowed to draw a conclusion that abuse causes some people to be fags. For example, Dr. Robert L. Spitzer, formerly of Columbia University, has recently made news by apologizing for his earlier research showing fags can be cured.

    But, the history of fags suggests abuse is a factor. For example, the infamous Kensey Studies show that fags had their first sexual experience with someone far before any child should be experiencing such things.
