Skip to comments.Suicide rates among gay men eight times higher [Scotland]
Posted on 04/25/2012 1:49:30 AM PDT by Berlin_Freeper
Gay men in Scotland are nearly eight times more likely to have attempted suicide in the past year and four times more likely to have taken drugs than heterosexual men, a survey has suggested.

Nothing even mildly surprising about this.
They even creep themselves out.
The relatively high suicide rates among gay Scottish men has nothing to do with the problems associated with coming out of the closet. It’s that they’re forced by tradition to wear those damn kilts. On those windy long-winter nights and you get a frosty express making its way up to those private parts of yours, you might get kind of lonely and depressed yourself.
What they don’t hint at....is lesbian suicides...which I would suspect are pretty low (if they don’t mention it).
Sad.....It's like they are preparing themselves for Hell.
They have no hope.....positive thinking, as in trying to think well of themselves, is of the flesh and steered by the flesh, vacant of any meaning because they think with an influenced carnal mind.
Every homosexual that I've known throughout my life is in a desperate state of self-distraction looking for a light, external from the darkness within.
My preacher mentioned this 8 years ago
Your parents and your family are disappointed in you because you will very likely never marry or have children.
Most of the people that you are attracted to as a potential mate want nothing to do with you.
As an adult you do not fit in to most social circles because most social circles involve paired heterosexuals. This becomes only more and more the case the older you get.
You have the desire to have children but know that it just isnt in the cards for you.
You try to have a lasting loving relationship with other homosexual men but they never last and often turn violent especially when you try to get you partner to remain faithful.
Then there is of course the fact that they know that what they do is wrong and that it is potentially fatal, that every casual hook up is a spin of the cylinder in a game of Russian Roulette.
Society does these men no favors by suggesting that their mental disorder is just a different kind of normal. These men need help.
A study like this will receive ridicule and it will be said that it is the majoritys refusal to accept homosexuality that is causing these men to despair.
Shhhh.... The homosexuals will say it is bad methodology /s
I meant to 8. How did that happen?

Cuz their heads are scr**** up......duh
You have it down Brother.
Judging from the few homosexual people I know they are anything but gay.
Nature seeking perfection, as it has for billions of years.
Very good post. As I head to 50, my gay friends — who have so many great qualities and have been good friends —are sort of falling apart. It is hard to describe-—but after a steady diet of good times and a few decades of “me me me” - it just seems that they are wearing out from the inside and you can see it their faces now. I am generalizing, of course. But it is a pattern and I am seeing it first hand.
By looking at gay men as a group you are starting with a group that has serious mental health issues by definition.
I think this is the basis of all their discontent. They know they are not normal, that their lifestyle is destructive and they deny it. No matter how loudly they protest, they know they are lying to themselves.
The medical profession is a magnet for homosexuals. In my 30 some years, I have known many homosexuals. Perhaps one or two were truly at peace with who and what they were. All the others were bitter, nasty folks.
Not a very “gay” lifestyle, is it?
I have told others that I liken it to whistling past the graveyard.
They yell, scream, threaten, and demand extra-Constitutional rights thinking that will wash away the deep down knowledge that what they do is against mankind and against God.
Nothing will make you more suicidal than bagpipes.
But of course if a 17 year old wrote a paper on this in high school stating these facts; he would be guilty of “bullying”.
In a way I can understand the urge to call people who suggest that homosexuality is a disorder. Looking back at how the Soviet Union put Christians in mental wards it is easy to see how suggesting that homosexuals are suffering from a mental disorder is just a step away from institutionalizing them involuntarily.
The majority of homosexuals function perfectly well in society and do not need to be committed however to suggest that they are not suffering from a disorder is just willful blindness (or political opportunism).
And in other news,looking straight into the sun can blind you.
Why do you say that? Women are actually more likely to attempt suicide than men. Granted, men are more likely than women to successfully commit suicide.
So a disproportionate amount of gay men commit suicide. If stats are consistent across the population (big if) then it would make sense for lesbians to have a similarly disproportionate amount of suicide attempts.
Either way, what is your ooint in saying that lesbian suicide rates are lower?
