Neurosis is very complex, and becomes addictive due to the ability of the brain to add brain cells in brain areas that we exercise often, as recent discoveries in stroke research have revealed. (Stroke recovery also shows that we can "reprogram" our brains to varying extents.)
Emotionally, persons who have been shamed and ridiculed as children, especially by their parents, may unconsciously seek out more of the same. It becomes confused with the quest for love because it's the only thing they've known. This configuration is seen in women who were abused in childhood and then unconsciously find abusers as partners to a greater extent than women who were not abused as children.
I agree with your entire post, part of which is reproduced here. I went to art school 'way back in the day and of course met many homosexuals. Their focus was on "being outrageous!" Many were guys who had poor relationships with their parents. "Being" gay was a way that they could place themselves beyond the pale of parental reproach. It was a way to force an artificial barrier between themselves and their families, sometimes because of rage at abuse; other times because of an overwhelming and inappropriate mother who tried to turn her son into a husband emotionally.
I read recently that the monies spent on AIDS research and support far exceed the funding for breast cancer, which affects exponentially more people than AIDS, often devastating entire families if a young mother dies.
Very interesting post — thanks.
The entire thrust of the gay-rights legal agenda is to put legal barriers in the way of any criticism of the lifestyle whatsoever. This is the basis of the "hate speech" codes, which in other countries have resulted in Christian pastors being jailed for reading the words of scripture concerning homosexual behavior. The stimulus bills in Congress during the present administration are trying to slip "hate speech" punishments under the radar here, mandating Federal penalties.
It's all been part of a long, slow, planned takeover:
You know that they have, and always will. That is what politics has become in this country; and it will only get worse.
Here, as a recent spokesman for Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX), Greg Quinlan comments on the Democrat Congress' attempt to shoehorn "hate crimes" legislation into the recent Defense Authorization bill:
Ex-'gays' would suffer under 'hate crimes' law (7/20/09)
Greg Quinlan has been an ex-gay activist for a long time. He married an ex-lesbian many years his junior, and the couple used their relationship as part of their "proof" that change is possible. Unfortunately, this was a bad decision, because they divorced after a few years. With a 50% divorce rate in this country and the problems of age difference to begin with, it's hard to say what really happened. But of course, this divorce plays into the vitriol of the "born-gay" camp.
"Ex-Gay Watch" tells its spin on Greg Quinlan's story: Wife Divorces Ex-Gay Activist Greg Quinlan
Yes, I did a search on Greg Quinlan after posting and saw the acrid vitriol launched against him on several homo-activist websites. It is a shame that he divorced after a few years, but that proves nothing of the homo-activists’ arguments, only that brokenness may last many years after healing begins. The homosexual activists are absolutely horrified at the prospect that same-sex attraction may, in fact, be mutable and not inborn. They will viciously fight any evidence that supports this - hence their absolute contempt for ex-”gays.”
In a very real way, the demise of heterosexual marriage due to the abandonment of religion and conservative traditions is one of the prime enablers of the fight for "gay marriage". Marxists have worked long and diligently to accomplish the take-down of conventional morality and the promotion of gay "normalization." When the people are stripped of private family and extended family networks, strong communities and common decency, they are much easier to overtake. As we are now seeing...

You are so on target.
