Is a Homosexual Lifestyle Safe?

by Dave Miller, Ph.D.
Brad Harrub, Ph.D.

Q.

Is a homosexual lifestyle safe?

A.

Living a homosexual lifestyle is far from “safe.” In fact, homosexuals experience a shorter lifespan than heterosexuals—a fact that is not often reported in the national press. In an effort to estimate the life expectancy of homosexuals, Paul Cameron and his colleagues reviewed 6,714 obituaries from sixteen United States homosexual journals (1993). They then compared those results to obituaries from two conventional newspapers. Cameron and his colleagues reported the following results:

Median Age of Death
Heterosexuals Homosexuals*
married men 75, 80% died old 39 if AIDS was the cause (1% died old)
unmarried men 57, 32% died old 42 in non-AIDS cases (< 9% died old)
married women 79, 85% died old
unmarried women 71, 60% died old
* In the 6,714 homosexual obituaries
Yet, according to the Center for Disease Control, the average life expectancy rate in the United States is 77.2 (according to 2001 data). Thus, the average homosexual (without AIDS) dies 35.2 years earlier.

Cameron, et al., also demonstrated that if the person had not died of AIDS, homosexuals faced a great deal more violence than their heterosexual counterparts. They discovered that homosexuals died:

10 times more often in accidents
17 times more frequently in traffic
26 times more often from suicide
87 times more from murder
23 times more often from heart attacks (compared to white men aged 25-44)
Cameron and his colleagues presented their findings at the Eastern Psychological Association, concluding that homosexuals do not live to old age, when compared to non-homosexual counterparts. Their study clearly established that homosexuals experience shorter life spans compared to heterosexuals.

Male Homosexuals

Research indicates that the average male homosexual has hundreds of sex partners in his lifetime:

· The Dutch study of partnered homosexuals, which was published in the journal AIDS, found that men with a steady partner had an average of eight sexual partners per year.[12]

· Bell and Weinberg, in their classic study of male and female homosexuality, found that 43 percent of white male homosexuals had sex with 500 or more partners, with 28 percent having one thousand or more sex partners.[13]

· In their study of the sexual profiles of 2,583 older homosexuals published in the Journal of Sex Research, Paul Van de Ven et al. found that "the modal range for number of sexual partners ever [of homosexuals] was 101-500." In addition, 10.2 percent to 15.7 percent had between 501 and 1,000 partners. A further 10.2 percent to 15.7 percent reported having had more than one thousand lifetime sexual partners.[14]

· A survey conducted by the homosexual magazine Genre found that 24 percent of the respondents said they had had more than one hundred sexual partners in their lifetime. The magazine noted that several respondents suggested including a category of those who had more than one thousand sexual partners.[15]

Thanks for finally admitting you ARE a religious fanatic. And yes, this IS 2013, and NO woman has to be a mother unless she WANTS to be one. I know, you have a real problem with that. Too bad.
Who said you have to be a mother. You can choose to have your child adopted since your so pro choice. But thats not good enough for you, because no one is going to raise your child, not even you. Instead, you would just kill it before it had the chance to grow up and become the godless, angry, arrogant human you turned out to be. Good for you! Bravo!

And I will keep referring to you pro deathers as unreasonable and closed minded. Most of what you just posted though I am in total agreement with you on regarding teen pregnancy. That actually makes total sense.
You can call me whatever you want; it makes no difference to me. When all is said and done, the prochoice position comes down to just four simple words: let EACH woman decide.

The problem that anti-choicers have with that is their LACK of authority to make sexual and reproductive choices for all women. Tough luck for them. This isn't the 1850's or 1950's, and women DO have rights now, including the right to terminate a pregnancy.

Your so skilled at juvenile name calling Ocean. You must have perfected those skills by either being a bully in high school, or your parent taught it to you. You hate so well and so easily. It seems to just come naturally to you liberals.
As with all anti-choice assumptions, yours are also WRONG. However, it is hardly being a bully to push back against anti-choice extremists who call prochoice women "baby killers," "lazy sluts," etc. If anti-choicers don't like being CALLED extremists, they should stop acting that way.

The fact remains that each woman gets to decide for HERSELF whether or not to continue a pregnancy. If it isn't YOUR pregnancy, it isn't your decision. Why that is so hard for you to understand is beyond me, but thankfully, your inability to get that isn't MY problem to deal with.

What part of God changed my desire to sin, do you not understand.
People who are truly saved will still sin, since they are still in their earthen body, BUT the way they desire to sin, and how they feel after they sin is two different worlds.
As far as Hell.
I never even really thought very much about it untill the night God woke me up.
God is the one that let me know, that I was fixing to make a decision to accept His free gift "THAT I DO NOT AND CAN NOT BOAST ABOUT ",or Hell would be my home when I died.
So I have the written word of God, that does talk about Hell, regaurdless of how many wish it didn't , or try and discredit the word, PLUS I have God Himself, through His Holy Spirit, that let me know in the blink of an eye that Hell is real.
So, do I believe in a book, that just so happens to back up and tell me all that happened to me in person with God, OR do I believe some person on the internet who tells me this god is a liar about Hell, and has nothing better to offer at all.
I think a guy named Joshua, which lived long before I came along, said it best -when He said "as for me and my house we will serve the Lord ".
Your delusions are your own. I guess that dinner with Jesus and Elvis really changed you.

Can you explain why there are over 100,000 kids currently in foster care? I'll save you the trouble; because they WEREN'T adopted. So adoption isn't the "magical" cure for unwanted pregnancy you make it out to be, is it.

A woman has a right to choose not to stay pregnant. She has a right to make her own medical decisions in private, with no interference.

Do you have a study from an objective source or only one who has a rigid stance against homosexuality?

Exactly. It's a right that anti-choice guys seem to have a REAL problem with, especially those who don't like the idea of women HAVING rights in the first place.

I'm sure a lot of these bozos still have archaic notions about "a woman's place" and all that other 19th century nonsense. You know, the ones who voted for conservative idiots like Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock.:-)

Yes, I would like to see the list of three men. Are they gay?

My father? You weren't his type. He probably died before you were born.

While you are listing your THREE men, add the long list of teenage boys as well.

This should be interesting.

I merely said, we believe Socrates and other great philosophers of both the Greek and Roman civilizations existed, yet we have no real proof, physical or otherwise, but we don't believe Jesus Christ existed because we have no physical proof? Why the double standard?
There is proof that the philosophers existed.

I'm not twisting. YOU are avoiding. You said it was easy to prove Jesus existed. Well, go ahead.

Would you find it flattering to be called "arrogant bit/ch?" You really think "lesbo" is acceptable?
Your expert is nothing unless you have credentials and basis for authority.
What problems do we have? Be specific, and how do they differ from the problems heteros have? As for wasting my time, I haven't yet. Many of us have worked for decades solving the problems a repressive society imposed on us; that was no waste of time.
A militant lesbian is one who stands up for her rights, aggressively so if necessary. It has nothing to do with personal relationships.
Let's see; I admit I have no rapport with kids, and then ask if I have adopted. Good logic.
<quoted text>
Why do you want the credentials? What difference would it make? What are your credentials?

You can call me an AB because I know I am not one. Fire away.

Lesbo? Isn't that just short for lesbian? Are you a lesbian too?

You have worked for decades? What are your accomplishments? That's right, O. That's admirable, but a waste of time. Put your time to go use. No, I don't mean with other men. That's just nasty.

Militan lesbo? Yes, it has everything to do with personal relationships. When you take your anger out on little kids and your lesbo partner and the police are called, it has everything to do with it.
Lesbians are just as angry and frustrated as nuns. And it ain't pretty.

Logic? Yes, you could have adopted. Other gay men have no rapport with kids and they adopt. Why can't you. Have you?

No one wants to be gay.....It's just plain sad.

They would demand abortion clinics.

To simply show the flip side of the coin.
To, as ocean says educate young women, so they know that in fact there are many women who DO regret having an abortion.
Ocean is the one posting the flip side, in response to those on your side who only bring up those who regret.
