The Gay Related Complex, part 5: The Myth of “Minority Stress”

image_pdfClick for pdf, print or save

In publications over the last ten years, we see mention of ‘minority stress’. We are led to believe that all mental health problems of gays ultimately stem from society. The environment is consistently labeled as hostile, ferocious and horrific. Therefore, the outside world would be the ultimate source of psychiatric pathology. In these articles by LGBT-activists, a victim stance is propagated for anyone who calls himself gay. Before we can continue with our series on the Gay Related Complex, we need to address this claim and clean up the swamp. What perceptions and ideas are radical activists promoting? What is their relationship with the agenda, the recent fights in court, of radical gay-lib lawyers? How does all this influence general opinion and, at the end of the day, which harm does this do to the self-perception of the persons involved?

The Gay Related Complex, part 4: Sexual ‘Orientation’ is actually a Sexual ‘Fixation’

The concept of sexual ‘orientations’ is merely a figure of speech. Orientations do not exist as actual biological entities, but through repetition and activism, they have come to live a life of their own in the minds of the general public. What we actually see is chronic fixations, not orientations. In this article, we will describe this approach to sexual syndromes, notably the Don Juan Syndrome and the Sadomasochist Syndrome. In part 5, we will expand this to describe Same Sex Attractions. Continue reading The Gay Related Complex, part 4: Sexual ‘Orientation’ is actually a Sexual ‘Fixation’

The Gay Related Complex, part 3: LGBT-psychology is a pseudo-science

Regular science understands homosexuality more than ever before. A whole complex of feelings and experiences can be identified which ultimately gives way to same-sex attractions. Before we analyze the Gay Related Complex, we need to look into the controversy with which radical gay-lib has confused the debate in the past three decades. Gay-lib has even created a science of its own, called LGBT-psychology. By boldly denying all underlying mechanisms, this frame of thought has led to therapeutic neglect. In this article, we will analyze the phenomenon, demonstrate how and why it is a pseudo-science, explore its historical roots, and explain in what way it is actually harmful to young people who are questioning what to make of life.

The false notion of “Born This Way”, invented in 1988 for legal reasons.

In our previous article in this series, we demonstrated that homosexuality does not exist as a separate entity. But before we expand on this, we need to understand why insights as these have become so highly contested in American society. Why do gay-lib activists insist that you were born this way and how has this unsubstantiated stance become mainstream? How can a century of psycho-analytic research have been silenced? To understand that, we need to explore the political context. Here is what happened and why. The content is shocking. Continue reading The Gay Related Complex, part 2: The political context

The Gay Related Complex, part 1

In 2012 the Dutch minister of Health, Edith Schippers, ended the financing of psychotherapeutic counseling for persons seeking help for unwanted same-sex attractions. She had been been approached by a Dutch gay-lib organization. “Homosexuality is not a mental disorder, therefore it does not warrant treatment. It is totally normal”, Schippers declared in parliament. This stance, however, raises some serious questions. Does homosexuality really give just as few problems as heterosexuality does? Is it merely a coincidentally occurring phenomenon? Are there no inherent worries and profound concerns about the emotional, psychological, social and perhaps for some, even spiritual health of the individual? And is the term “mental disorder” the be-all-and-end-all of psychotherapeutic help? In this article, we investigate psychotherapy, and address the political implications of our findings.

Exploring your full sexual potential, part 19/24: Attaching and Detaching, the Snap Game

In part 18, we studied detachment from a theoretical perspective. In this article, we will demonstrate how it works in daily life. Men who predominantly experience Opposite Sex Attractions (OSA’s) attach to other men in a carefree way. But men who experience many Same Sex Attractions (SSA’s) also find themselves incessantly detaching from others. Two opposing forces appear to be at work: Attaching and Detaching. By means of a simple mind game, the Snap Game, you may start recognizing them. We will show three different insights that the game can lead to.
