  2. התנצלות על הרושם הפטרוני We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain undeniable rights, that among these rights are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. מגילת העצמאות של ארה"ב

  3. התנצלות על ההעדפה הגברית • יש פחות חומר מחקרי על לסביות • הלסביוּת כנראה דיפוזית יותר • הבעייתיות קטנה יותר

  4. ראשית חכמה: הפרדת מדע מאידיאולוגיה מה תשיב להורה מציק? "הרי יש חוקרים שאומרים שאתה יכול להשתנות!" "לא נכון!כולם אומרים שאי-אפשר לשנות נטייה מינית!"(לא עומד במבחן הביקורת, מערבב מדע וערכים, לא משרת את המטרה) "כן, מי שמאוד רוצה יכול להשתנות. אני פשוט לא רוצה!"(תשובה ערכית, בלתי-תלויה במחקר, עמידה על זכות האדם לחיות את חייו כרצונו)

  5. מצוקה נפשית בקרב הומוסקסואלים 1. Herrell, R., Goldberg, J., True, W.R., Ramakrishnan, V., Lyons, M., Eisen, S., Tsuang, M.T. (1999) Sexual Orientation and Suicidality: A Co-twin Control Study in Adult Men. Arch. Gen. Psychiatry, 56: 867-874. Gays prone to suicide 6.5 times more than co-twins. 2. Remafedi, G., Farrow, J., and Deisher, R. (1991). Risk Factors for Attempted Suicide in Gay and Bisexual Youth. Pediatrics, 87(6): 869-875. The risk of suicide decreases by 80% for each year that a young man delays homosexual/bisexual self-labeling.Suicide attempts were not explained by experiences with discrimination, violence, loss of friendship, or current personal attitude towards homosexuality. 3. Ross, M.W. (1988): Homosexuality and mental health: A cross-cultural review. J. Homosex, 15(1/2): 131-152. Comorbidity unrelated to the culture within which the homosexual person lives. 4. de Graaf, R.,  Sandfort, T.G.M. and  ten Have, M. (2006): Suicidality and sexual orientation: Differences between men and women in a general population-based sample from the Netherlands. Archives of Sexual Behavior, 35: 253-262. Homosexual men differed from their heterosexual counterparts on all four suicide symptoms (Odds Ratio [OR] ranging from 2.58 to 10.23, with higher ORs for more severe symptoms), and on the sum total of the four symptoms; homosexual women only differed from heterosexual women on suicide contemplation (OR=2.12). 5. Cochran, B. N & Cauce, A. M (2006). Characteristics of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals entering substance abuse treatment. Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment, 30: 135-146. LGBT clients used drugs of abuse more frequently than heterosexuals, and took psychotropic medications in twice the proportion of heterosexual clients. Significantly more likely to be victims of domestic violence.

  6. גורמי התאבדות אינהרנטיים 1. Saghir, M.T., Robins, E. (1973) Male and Female Homosexuality: A Comprehensive Investigation. Baltimore: Williams & Wilkins. 2/3 suicides due to breakup 2. Bell, A. P., & Weinberg, M. S. (1978) Homosexualities: A Study of Diversity Among Men and Women. New York: Simon & Shuster. Major reason for suicide attempts was the breakup of relationships. In second place was the inability to accept oneself.

Lafayette, LA: Huntington House. • A study of 5,514 Canadian college and university students under the age of 25 found 1% who were homosexual and 1% who were bisexual. (King et al., 1988). • A study of 8,337 British men found that 6.1% had had "any homosexual experience" and 3.6% had "1+ homosexual partner ever." (Johnson et al., 1992). • A French study of 20,055 people found that 4.1% of the men and 2.6% of the women had at least one occurrence of intercourse with person of the same sex during their lifetime. (ANRS, 1992). • A Danish random survey found that 2.7% of the 1,373 men who responded to their questionnaire had homosexual experience (intercourse). (Melbye, 1992). • The National Health Interview Survey does household interviews of the civilian non-institutionalized population. The results of three of these surveys, done in 1990-1991 and based on over 9,000 responses each time, found between 2-3% of the people responding said yes to a set of statements which included "You are a man who has had sex with another man at some time since 1977, even one time." (Dawson, Hardy, 1990-1992) • In a random survey of 6,300 Norwegians, 3.5% of the men and 3% of the women reported that they had had a homosexual experience sometime in their life. (Sundet et al., 1988).

  10. "כך נולדת"AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION FACT SHEET [!] MAY 2000 Q. Is It Possible To Change One’s Sexual Orientation (“Reparative Therapy”)? A. There is no published scientific evidence supporting the efficacy of “reparative therapy” as a treatment to change one’s sexual orientation, nor is it included in the APA’s Task Force Report, Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders. More importantly, altering sexual orientation is not an appropriate goal of psychiatric treatment. Some may seek conversion to heterosexuality because of the difficulties that they encounter as a member of a stigmatized group. Clinical experience indicates that those who have integrated their sexual orientation into a positive sense of self-function are at a healthier psychological level than those who have not.

  22. הסקירות המקיפות ביותר 3:מוטה בעד Rahman, K, & Wilson, G. D. (2005) Born Gay? The Psychobiology of Human Sexual Orientation. London: Peter Owen. “Amidst the conflicting findings, it seems that, whether operationalised in terms of gender atypicality or as a primary trait, sexual orientation has a substantial genetic component, and that this may be located on the X chromosome” (הדגשות שלי).

  23. דבר ראש פרויקט הגנום האנושי:Francis S. Collins, former director of the National Human Genome Research Institute "An area of particularly strong public interest is the genetic basis of homosexuality. Evidence from twin studies does in fact support the conclusion that heritable factors play a role in male homosexuality. However, the likelihood that the identical twin of a homosexual male will also be gay is about 20% (compared with 2-4 percent of males in the general population), indicating that sexual orientation is genetically influenced but not hardwired by DNA, and that whatever genes are involved represent predispositions, not predeterminations." (ההדגשות שלי)

  24. "כך נולדת" – טוב, לא ממש כך... American Psychological Association "Answers to Your Questions about Sexual Orientation and Homosexuality“ (March 2008) AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION FACT SHEET [!] MAY 2000 Q. Is It Possible To Change One’s Sexual Orientation (“Reparative Therapy”)? A. There is no published scientific evidence supporting the efficacy of “reparative therapy” as a treatment to change one’s sexual orientation, nor is it included in the APA’s Task Force Report, Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders. More importantly, altering sexual orientation is not an appropriate goal of psychiatric treatment. Some may seek conversion to heterosexuality because of the difficulties that they encounter as a member of a stigmatized group. Clinical experience indicates that those who have integrated their sexual orientation into a positive sense of self-function are at a healthier psychological level than those who have not. What causes a person to have a particular sexual orientation? There is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay, or lesbian orientation. Although much research has examined the possible genetic, hormonal, developmental, social, and cultural influences on sexual orientation, no findings have emerged that permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factor or factors. Many think that nature and nurture both play complex roles; most people experience little or no sense of choice about their sexual orientation.

(INAH (גרעינים אינטרסטיציאליים בהיפותלמוס האנטריורי LeVay, S. (1994) The Sexual Brain. Mass.: MIT Press. To many people, finding a difference in brain structure between gay and straight men is equivalent to proving that gay men are "born that way." Time and again I have been described as someone who "proved that homosexuality is genetic" or some such thing. I did not. My observations were made only on adults who had been sexually active for a considerable period of time. It is not possible, purely on the basis of my observations, to say whether the structural differences were present at birth, and later influenced the men to become gay or straight, or whether they arose in adult life, perhaps as a result of the men's sexual behavior.

[I]t is possible that differences in sexual behavior cause (rather than are caused by) differences in the brain.”

Mothers of male homosexuals, bisexuals and heterosexuals were to recall stressful episodes they may have experienced during pregnancy (e.g. deaths of close relatives, divorces, separations, traumatic, financial or sexual experiences, feelings of severe anxiety). Nearly two-thirds of the mothers of the male homosexuals, compared to one-third of the mothers of the bisexuals and less than 10% of the mothers of the heterosexuals were able to recall such episodes.

Not only has the effect been demonstrated in samples of men from different eras (see Blanchard & Bogaert, 1996a, 1996b), from different countries (see Blanchard & Bogaert, 1996b; Blanchard, Zucker, Cohen-Kettenis, Gooren, & Bailey, 1996), and with different ethnicities (Bogaert, 1998), but it has also been found to occur in clinical (e.g., Bogaert et al., 1997) and nonclinical (e.g., Blanchard & Bogaert, 1996b) samples. Recently, we have demonstrated that the birth order difference between homosexual and heterosexual men is primarily the result of homosexual men being born later among their brothers, relative to heterosexual men (Blanchard & Bogaert, 1996a, 1996b, 1997; Bogaert et al., 1997).”

Archives of Sexual Behavior, 35: 533–547. Men who marry homosexually are more likely to have been raised in a family with unstable parental relationships -- particularly, absent or unknown fathers and divorced parents. Men who experienced parental death during childhood or adolescence "had significantly lower heterosexual marriage rates than peers whose parents were both alive on their 18th birthday. The younger the age of the father's death, the lower was the likelihood of heterosexual marriage." "The shorter the duration of parental marriage, the higher was the likelihood of homosexual marriage...homosexual marriage rates were 36% and 26% higher among men and women, respectively, who experienced parental divorce after less than six years of marriage, than among peers whose parents remained married for all 18 years of childhood and adolescence." "Men whose parents divorced before their 6th birthday were 39% more likely to marry homosexually than peers from intact parental marriages." "Men whose cohabitation with both parents ended before age 18 years had significantly (55% -76%) higher rates of homosexual marriage than men who cohabited with both parents until 18 years."

Paternal attachment and introverted and neurotic characteristics present major influencing factors in the development of homosexuals. In particular, the father-son relationship has a unique role in the process of becoming a male homosexual” (p. 25).

Despite the provocative and politically incorrect nature of that statement, it fits the evidence. In fact, it may be the most consistent, well-documented, and significant finding in the entire field of sexual-orientation research and perhaps in all of human psychology” (p. 166).
