Though this new study only enforces previous studies, it does help shine through all the present bigotry behind California’s Proposition 8. I found this version of all this over at Pam’s to have the most revenant links proving the point. Family Acceptance Project Releases Paper On LGB Youth Risk Factors
The various issues concerning Gay Rights are unique in that there is no skin coming off anyone else’s nose. As such, this type of bigotry directed at gay men and women is just for the fun of it. Economic and intellectual wanting groups of people can suffer real or imagined fears of Hispanics and African Americans who may be coming to take their jobs, steal their flat screen TVs, or gangbang the neighborhood. But there is no substance to fear of any kind concerning gays. Well other than better fashion sense for rednecks.
There are two sets of facts in this study that gets to the base nastiness of it all. First is this one which the study was about.
Gay children of parents who either negatively respond to them OR give little or no positive feedback:
8.4 times more likely to report attempting suicide
5.9 times more likely to report high levels of depression
3.4 times more likely to report illegal drug use
3.4 times more likely to report having engaged in unprotected sexual intercourse
The second set of facts also reaffirms past studies showing gay teens, on average, aware of their sexuality early on:
Under 11: when they first experienced a same-sex attraction.
Just over 14 : when they realized they were gay.
Before 16: when they came out to their families.
This issue, where parents knowingly and purposefully push their own children into self loathing, depression, drug use, and suicide is more than enough reason for them, and everyone else, to immediately reject whatever the source of this kind of hateful, intolerant, degenerate, bullcrap. It is deviant human behavior subsidized by Satan and orchestrated by the Anti Christ.
