The Archives of General Psychiatry, in Oct of 1999, followed over 1000 gays, lesbians and bisexuals and found that "they were significantly more likely to have had mental health problems" than the general population.

The Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology documents some negative health implications associated with homosexuality.  They found that 75% of nearly 2,000 respondents had pursued psychological counseling many for treatment of long-term depression.

In the book Men Who Beat the Men Who Love Them it is said that "the incidence of domestic violence among gay men is nearly double that in the heterosexual population".

The U S Centres for Disease Control says "HPV, a collection of more than 70 types of viruses, is almost universal among homosexual men."  At the Fourth International AIDS Malignancy Conference at the American National Institutes for Health, Dr Andrew Gurlich announced that "HPV infects over 90% of HIV-positive gay men and 65% of HIV-negative gay men."

The Journal of Interpersonal Violence examined violence and conflict in lesbian relationships and found that 1/3 had reported incidents of physical abuse by their partner.  The Journal of Social Science Research found that "slightly more than ½ of the lesbians reported they had been abused by a female lover/partner".  The Journal of Infectious Diseases even found that "most women who have sex with women also have had sex with men."

Nursing Research magazine was more exact.  Lesbians are three times more likely to abuse alcohol and suffer from other compulsive behaviours.  Of the lesbians studied "91% had had abused other drugs such as alcohol, and many reported compulsive difficulties with food, codependency, sex, and money.  46% had been heavy drinkers with frequent drunkenness."

A study in the International Journal of Epidemiology on the mortality rates of homosexuals.  They concluded, "... life expectancy at age 20 for gay and bisexual men is 8 to 20 years less than for all men."

Sexual Ecology: AIDS and the Destiny of Gay Men quotes homosexual author Urvashi Vaid who says, "We have an agenda to create a society in which homosexuality is regarded as healthy, natural and normal."

Seriously, do gay couples represent a good environment for raising and nurturing children?
