Physiological impacts of homophobia

Feb 2, 2011 | Posted by: Rick in Kansas | Full story: www.physorg.com

Young adults who are lesbian, gay or bisexual (LGB) are at far higher risk for severe mental health problems than their heterosexual peers. New research from Concordia University suggests that the stress of being rejected or victimized because of sexual orientation may disrupt hormonal responses in lesbians, gays and bisexuals.

Homophobes are mentally ill.

Come to me with you doctoral dissertation asserting your beliefs, with peer review that validates it, and then I will read your "proof" and see if it is logical. Until then, you remain someone with a hardened heart and blood on your hands.

Science itself is unqualified to make these determinations, which more properly belong in the realm of political and/or religious beliefs.
What a complete and utter crock, the physiological effects of the stress induced by having wonderful people such as you in the life of LGB people is a perfectly legitimate area of scientific study. I realize that you don't think so, but thus far you haven't offered much evidence that you have really given this a whole lot of anything that anyone else would confuse with actual thinking. As for the involvement of the realms of politics and religion, we'd all be better served if the politicians did their job and ensured legal equality for LGBT people and the religious folk just say their piece and then back the f*ck up.

It's more valid to say that queers are sick and mentally disordered than to entertain the denials and lies from self-serving queers seeking a financial benefit.
And your qualifications and research to back that claim up would be what exactly? Look, I realize that you've only posted here to get some pathetic little jolly from pissing the faggot off and yet I'm the sick one. Yeah right, when was YOUR last psychological evaluation?

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/3FuqC7 only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
