I just came across another ex-gay ministry site, and they did a survey of the members of their online support groups to determine what they percieved to have been the most significant causes of their developing homosexual feelings. As I’ve often said, homosexuality probably has many factors, both genetic and environmental. Out of the 200 responses, here’s the results (corrected the link).
- Father-son relationship problems (97%)
- Conflict with male peers (97%)
- Mother-son relationships (and the "smothering mother" syndrome) (90%)
- Other sexual experiences (93%)
- Personality Traits (87%)
- Sexual Abuse (48%)
