Study: No One Is Born Gay

“People suffering from SSA usually experience similar upbringings, in which they are two to three times more likely to have experienced childhood sexual abuse. Most children who identify as a gender opposite their biological sex will no longer do so by the time they reach adulthood. The New Atlantis reported, “One study estimated that as many as 80 percent of male adolescents who report same-sex attractions no longer do as adults.”

Compared to the general population, LGBT people have a higher rate of poor physical and mental health. Dr. Apu Chakraborty of University College in London studied the rates of mental disorders among 7,403 adults and reported, “Rates of depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, phobia, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, and alcohol and drug dependence were significantly higher in homosexual respondents.”

The National Alliance on Mental Illness stated, “LGBTQ individuals are almost three times more likely than others to experience a mental health condition such as major depression or generalized anxiety disorder.”
