Posted on 01/26/2005 4:43:08 PM PST by scripter
Dr. Sander Breiner, a member of NARTH's Scientific Advisory Committee, recently expanded upon a paper on "Adolescent Homosexuality" he presented at the November, 2004 NARTH conference in Washington, DC. (Dr. Breiner's paper is currently posted on the NARTH web site.)
Sexually questioning youth are vulnerable to the derailment of their normal heterosexuality, Dr. Breiner asserted, when they are urged to consider the possibility of being same-sex attracted.
Dr. Breiner's paper dealt with the current scientific knowledge on the development of the brain during pre-teen and teen years as it relates to hormones and emotional maturity. One of the sources for this paper was a book edited by Dr. Ronald Dahl for the New York Academy of Sciences on Adolescent Neuroscience. Dr. Dahl is at the University of Pittsburgh and has written extensively on adolescent brain development.
Breiner noted that neuroscientists are convinced that the developing brain during the teen years is significantly influenced by external emotional and social factors. Stress factors, nutrition, and exercise can have an effect on the reproductive function that can lead to a suppression of ovarian and testicular functions. According to Breiner, "If the stress is chronic there can be a significant suppression of this reproductive axis."
Gay-Affirming Teachings Can Impact Brain Development
In an interview with NARTH's Editorial Director, Dr. Breiner notes that teens typically face stresses and confusion about their sexuality. Teaching gay-affirming ideas to teens can add to the problems they already face. The child who is taught that he or she may be homosexual can be stressful and may react in the following negative ways: hurt self esteem; poor body image; likelihood of depression; anxiety about how they will function socially; and a delayed response in functioning as a heterosexual, which makes their social skills even more limited. Gay-affirming materials "won't make someone homosexual, but certainly will contribute to problems in their development," said Breiner. "Adolescents have enough problems in establishing gender roles and this will increase these problems."
According to Breiner, this isn't simply a social or psychological threat to children but is a neurological problem as well. Actual brain changes take place. He notes that there is a strong connection between hormonal development and neurotransmitters that send messages for hormonal development. "If the wrong message gets sent, as is likely to occur when external messages are coming from teachers, then the child may experience a delay in proper sexual development."
Dr. Breiner observes that neuroscience studies are clear on this subject yet nothing has appeared yet in the psychiatric or psychological literature to deal with the connection between external gay-affirming messages and brain development.
"I am convinced that gay affirming materials are injurious to children and will add to the psychological problems they already have as a normal part of development," said Breiner. "It is wrong to say that homosexuality is a viable alternative to heterosexuality. If teens are to be protected, they must be given the facts about homosexual behavior, not fantasies from the gay community."
In discussing the development of homosexuality in general, Dr. Breiner observed: "Human homosexuality is a symptom of some unresolved conflicts in a child's development psychologically. It is determined before the age of five, and usually between 1 1/2 to 3 years of age. If the individual has a neurosis, it was organized between ages 3 to 6. If they are of a borderline psychological organization, it was between ages 2 to 3. If they are psychotic, the psychological organization is under 2."
In the conclusion to his paper on "Adolescent Homosexuality," Dr. Breiner observes:
The brain that is developing (pre-puberty to adulthood), particularly in the area that deals with emotional and sexual development, is affected organically by social and physical stress. Homosexual indoctrination (direct or subtle), coercive or seductive can organically affect brain and sexual physiologic development to a modest or minimal degree. It cannot permanently produce homosexuality. However, it can certainly lead to a variety of difficulties commonly including hurt self-esteem, distortions in living, depression, selection of life goals, and other problems. Though the individual may eventually select a heterosexual life position, the preceding years of difficulties in developing and organizing one's life are likely to have more permanent deleterious effects. Therefore, any attitude by society and particularly educators that homosexuality is a reasonable or alternative lifestyle can significantly contribute to psychopathology in this vulnerable age.
So, being gay isn't genetic, its indoctrination?
The homosexuals count on this. That's why they try to get them indoctrinated when they are young.
Sure, for the informed. But there are too many people out there that are completely uninformed on the issue.
I think it is child abuse.
So, another case of science catching up with common sense and the evidence of our lying eyes.
I wish I had a dollar for every time I've been slammed for saying that same-sex attraction disorder is precipitated by a pre-adult molestation or seduction.
That's it, exactly.
Yet some freepers will tell us it's no big deal to show a video of popular cartoon characters about how "we are family" and at the same time teach from of a pro-homosexual teachers guide.
Yeah, sometimes I try to be diplomatic. Sometimes I don't!
It sure should be...
Yeah - me too. The FR bills could be paid on that income alone...
A kid I grew up with had it rough at home. His dad didn't want him around, his mother drank a lot and he left home at about 13, moved in with a homosexual who was in his 20s. He took care of him and I suppose showed him the "love" his family never did. And the rest, as they say, is history. Born like that? I seriously doubt it.

I've known numerous heterosexuals who went through some form of tramatic or stressful experience... been "befriended" by a caring homosexual who just happened to be nearby, and ended up going that route.
Every one of them, upon finding themselves irremoveably bound into a lifestyle that pulls them in and holds on tight, claims now that they were "born that way".
I can still remember a niece who was soooooo happy on her senior prom because she was with the perfect guy. No way she had lesbian tendencies. But after a bad breakup and 3 months of hanging with a lesbian that only wanted to console her, smoke a few doobies, and have a few drinks, she was in.
I had a roomate who went through a big breakup and found his music teacher more than willing to talk about it. In fact, the teacher would invite him to dinner to play on his very expensive piano. The nights grew longer, the wine grew stronger and next thing I know... he has all these fags showing up at our house getting excited about going to the gay bars. They were always wanting to invite me along. They could not take the word "No" until I finally had to send him packing..no pun there.
Of course. Homosexualism is taught just like liberalism, marxism, and communism.
If these kids are to be exposed to materials about the gay lifestyle, let them be honest materials. For example, telling them about the drug abuse, alcohol abuse, anorexia, compulsive sex, suicide rates, STD's, expensive, painful plastic surgery (if they're wealthy), shallowness, lonliness, & despair that there's no way out of that lifestyle, that gays secretly experience every day. Those who participate in "pride marches" are actually frustrated people blaming those who disagree with them for their own problems (admittedly, the likes of Fred Phelps don't help matters).
Any kids who are experiencing identity confusion would benefit from knowing the truth rather than politically correct gay propoganda. Why is the politically correct crowd so opposed to honesty?
