Exactly. Thanks for the post.
Over 10% of US gay men have over 1,000 different sexual partners.

Wow. Mentally ill people kill themselves more than non-mentally ill people? Who would ever have guessed.
And it's not due to medicating their depression. They take drugs most frequently to maximize the sex "high" while being sodomized.

A behavior furthest from free will as far as Im concerned.
Not surprising at all given that theyve already shown themselves to be mentally ill.

Maybe an intrinsically sad and disordered lifestyle choice, based on bad information?
Uh, let me think. Uh, probably because of the H8 that Trump supporters show to all glbtqxyzpbdsm entities? You know, the intolerance we have. /s
Most homosexuals were sexually molested as children and the continued behavior is a coping mechanism that fails to resolve the inner conflict between the learned behavior and the natural desire for heterosexual relationships.

What a life! Why didn’t they mention murder which is higher rate with this group too.
That’s really gay.
I commented as much on the Huff Blow website. Don't know if it's been pulled yet.
It’s a mental illness doc!
