Evidence and Sources
Sources used PRE-2017 are grouped by category to make them easier to digest and access, and this also enables you to dig down on a particular topic area. Sources used in 2017 are referenced directly from the page in which they are used.
If a resource has significant impact in more than one area, it may receive listing in more than one area. If it speaks very broadly to multiple issue areas, but not significantly into particular items, it will be placed in Group 7 (also known as the 7oo’s Series).
Sorry about the complexity. It continues to be a complex and multi-faceted study. Follow a link to access that group.
- Sources and evidence are provided in as convenient a method as possible.
- We invite others to test and hold us to a standard.
- We are ALL biased; bias is an inevitable result of our worldview. However, we sincerely try to interpret and apply these sources fairly.
- Vigorous, but not petty, analysis is welcomed. Obvious time-wasting will not be entertained or acknowledged.
- If you see a resource we should know about, or wish to politely challenge our interpretation or application, please inform us.
- When academic papers are referenced, the fees involved in making them available are often prohibitive. If the LGBT ++ team wants to challenge something and provide us with the licence so we can present our error, they have the money and connections. We do not.
- The fact that a source is used or listed here does not mean we, or any of our contributors agree with or endorse any or all of a source’s contents, things said or done by the authors, or any organisations represented.
- Not all sources are specifically cited in on-site articles. Some are included because they had formative or interest value to those who like to go through resources like these.
- After evidence or sources are identified, they sometimes disappear soon after. Coincidence? Perhaps. Perhaps not. If you find a dead link, please inform us.
Alerting You To Some Challenges
We have some challenges:
n 2013 the Federal Labor government introduced changes to the Charities Act that massively altered the landscape.
The 2013 Labor Government:
- Created a new category that made LGBT ++ causes tax deductible.
- Refused charitable status to organisations that opposed LGBT ++ causes.
- Made existing charities vulnerable to loss of Charitable Status if they opposed LGBT ++ causes.
- Removed existing laws that prohibited charities from lobbying governments or attempting to change government policy.
I wonder why?!?
These changes have:
- Brazenly enabled the pro-LGBT ++ groups to raise millions.
- Gained them an unrepresentative portrayal of corporate and community support.
- Ensured marriage defenders can raise little financial support (their donations are NOT tax deductible).
- Enabled Pro LGBT ++ organisations to spend this money directly on activities designed to lobby government and change policy.
- Gagged any existing charity from speaking for fear of loss of its financial livelihood.
As a result, Unlike the multi-million dollar LGBT+ agenda, we don’t have tax deductibility to attract donations, and those who do support us can’t claim a marketing or sponsorship angle for the same reason. They need (for now at least) to stay hidden or face enormous abuse.
When we have funding for improved referencing, we will do so.

Please note this population group could not be said to be representative of the entire homosexual population, there were group sampling limitations as the title of the study will indicate, However, neither can it be said that the broader homosexual population would differ from this.

153 The Federal Lawsuit brought by desperate Massachusetts parents. The court documents state: “This is a claim brought by four parents and their very young children against the Town of Lexington, its school board, various administrators and a teacher. The plaintiffs are devout Judeo-Christians. They claim that the defendants have intentionally interfered with their Fourteenth Amendment due process rights to direct the moral upbringing of their own children. The defendants (school etc) have begun a campaign of intentionally indoctrinating very young children to affirm the notion that homosexuality is right and moral, in direct denigration of the plaintiffs’ deeply-held faith. The plaintiffs tolerate and respect all people but wish to teach their faith to their children at their own pace, and in their own way.” Continued in 154. http://www.massresistance.org/docs/parker_lawsuit/filing_2006/complaint.html

A Macy’s employee in Texas was fired after she challenged the store’s LGBT policy that allows transgendered people to use male and female dressing rooms. Challenging a “cross-dressing young man” on this issue, the LBGT non-discrimination won out over non-discrimination toward religion. A legislated protection to her conviction that it would oppose her religious beliefs to lie and pretend he was a woman. This won’t be the last time these words are heard around the poker table of life: “I’ll raise your religious discrimination defence with my LGBT discrimination defence”. NOTE: My apologies.

158 “Maryland County Considers Bill to Accommodate Cross-Dressing Men [and Portland and Maryland already have them (my addition)]” by Dave Bohon. The New American. Thursday, 19 January 2012 As Baltimore County tackles the confusing issue of where does a cross dresser go to toilet or change, they also have to deal with everyone else as well. Transvestites, cross-dressers, and men confused about their gender could access women’s bathrooms, showers, and dressing rooms under a proposed law. However, Portland’s “gender identity” law already allows this, and has seen a cross-dressing sex offender access a women’s locker room and change his clothes with young girls present. A similar law (the article claims) has also possibly facilitated rapes that occurred in women’s bathrooms there. Please note. This issue is complex. I mean no disrespect to genuinely gender confused / re-orientating people (though I admit I don’t understand it as much as I’d like). http://www.thenewamerican.com/culture/faith-and-morals/item/1093-maryland-county-considers-bill-to-accommodate-cross-dressing-men

These findings indicate that the daughters of lesbian parents are significantly more inclined than their peers to explore same-sex sexual behaviour, same-sex orientation and to identify as bisexual (18.9%). This is consistent with the research on fluidity in sexual attractions and identity among lesbian women.

Rosik, Ph.D.(2011).In the best-designed study to date, it has been concluded that some people can indeed move from homosexuality to heterosexuality, and that harm is unlikely to result from such efforts. Sexual-orientation change efforts (SOCE) are a contentious area of study, with bias and agendas alleged to be rife throughout the professional scene. The follow-up study to the 2007 Stanton Jones, Ph.D. and Mark Yarhouse, Ph.D., has just appeared in the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy.Their authors conclude, “Evidence from the study suggested that change of homosexual orientation appears possible for some and that psychological distress did not increase on average as a result of the involvement in the change process” (Jones & Yarhouse, 2011, p. 404). http://www.narth.com/2011/10/2061

Associations between adverse events and sexuality grouping were found for sexual assault, rape, violence experienced and violence witnessed. However, events such as sudden death of a loved one, serious childhood illness or accident, were only slightly associated with non-heterosexual identity or behaviour. This report’s results also support a more non-Kinseyan type of homosexual and bi-sexual demographic, with only 2% reporting having been in a same-sex relationship, 3% having experienced a same-sex encounter and only 1.4% (combined) identifying as homosexual or bisexual. http://www.otago.ac.nz/news/news/otago009976.html

Dr Fitzgibbons cites numerous studies that counter claims by “Time” magazine (gay) journalist John Cloud about positive mental health among gay teens.

With all its sexual and social activity, the “gay life” provides no more than an alienated and isolated existence for many homosexuals. Continuity of relationships between two homosexuals is rare, although many homosexuals spend a lifetime seeking it. For those who do seek it, any relationship that offers that possibility is apt to be intensely over invested rather quickly. Since such relationships usually lack social or family support, rejection or disappointment signifies not merely abandonment but despair over the inability to escape emotional isolation.” http://www.narth.com/docs/instability.html

The accusation is that since you usually come down on one side of the argument, you are just a ‘closet (whatever)’; i.e. a fake who pretends to be fair and balanced. Box Turtle would cop this accusation from those who oppose homosexual marriage, whereas I tend to cop it from those who want marriage redefined. In the interest of fairness I cite it here. It makes some good points and some very fair criticisms while working very hard to minimise or ignore what the study does find. You decide. http://www.boxturtlebulletin.com/Articles/000,003.htm

This data suggests the risk of sexual abuse may be high among some youth. Note, I do not say ‘homosexual’ youth as I believe their is no such thing.

226 “Mothers / The Truth Sets You Free: The Classic Triadic Relationship” by the ‘truth sets you free’, July 5, 2008. This article comments on and explains the findings of source 225 above in a less ‘scientist-speak’ manner. Observations include:
- That gender-conflicted boys frequently have a relationship with their mother where the mother-son relationship represents a barrier between himself and the male world;
- A paradoxical love-hate, approach-avoidance conflict is often in play;
- Homosexual men typically experienced their mothers more negatively than heterosexual men;
- Often had to “choose” one parent over another;
- Had their gender-identity development thwarted by an unbalanced relational pattern, f) Are overrepresented as victims of childhood sexual abuse and
- Due to relational deficiencies are more vulnerable to sexual abuse (and may I add confusion).Commenting on the APA (American Psychological and Psychiatric Association), the author comments that their continued refusal to consider the role of environmental factors in the development of male homosexuality is problematic. What is a clearly complex process should not be oversimplified, nor should scientific exploration be limited by politics.

Speaking for myself, I wonder how different my life could have been if helping same sex oriented people had NOT become politically incorrect in 1973. http://thetruthsetsyoufree.wordpress.com/category/apa/

These sources offer a reality check, as well as a dose of ‘empathy-medicine’ for the self-righteous. After decades of misunderstanding and abuse (from all sides) it’s easy to become polarised and defensive.
Those who recognise the assault on our culture increasing, and the tipping point of collapse we now teeter upon, are even less inclined to be empathetic.
But empathy is good! In fact, the urgency of this time can empower humility, humility can empower empathy, and empathy enables understanding and can removes hostility. Only when pride is removed is real love and discussion possible.
No one escapes this life without wounding and difficulty. No-one!

It gives reason to question whether the beliefs and attitudes of homosexual and bi-sexual men toward safer sexual practices actually does result in them practicing them. Does the belief that interventions to change their views actually work? However, a recent study points to the possibility of less politically correct theories about their sexual risk behaviours. The point is, that the politically correct leanings need to be taken out of the process, especially where gay, lesbian, and bisexual studies are concerned. http://www.narth.com/2011/11/study-raises-questions-about-conventional-theories-regarding-sexual-risk-behavior-among-gay-and-bisexual-men

307 “Interconnecting Isms: Race, Gender and Homophobia” Posted by Student Teachers Anti-Racism Society, 1 May 2011. Speaking on a presentation by Dr. Alex Wilson of the department of Educational Foundations, College of Education at the University of Saskatchewan, Dr. Wilson’s final words emphasised that, according to research, the most preventative factor of youth suicide is a positive and meaningful relationship with at least one adult. The fact that so many youth who experience racism, homophobia and sexism do commit suicide alarms us to the fact that we are not doing enough to care for and value our children. http://starsusask.blogspot.com.au/2011_05_01_archive.htm

412 “Theories of Sexual Orientation” by Michael D. Storms (University of Kansas). Published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology (1980), Vol 38, No 5, 783 – 792.
Using a U.S. college population, Storms tested the assumptions that sexual orientation relates to a person’s sex role orientation, or a person’s erotic orientation. He argued these were largely untested assumptions that have significantly influenced theories, research and clinical practice regarding sexual orientation.
His research disconfirmed theories relating to sex-role inversion as a theory for same-sex development. He found that in regards to sex-role behaviours, there was no notable difference between heterosexual subjects and their homosexual and bisexual counterparts.
Evidence that erotic fantasies correlated closely with sexual orientation was found. No huge surprise here for most, however homosexuals had higher and more varied willingness to engage in heterosexual fantasy than is typically represented in media and folklore. Evidence to counter the appropriateness of unidimensional scales such as Kinsey’s was also presented. http://www.williamapercy.com/wiki/images/Theories_of_sexual_orientation.pdf

These sources overview critical issues pertaining to sexual development, health and our responsible nurture of it. These sources, are also some of the most difficult ones to access. It has been alleged that it is professional and career suicide for any academic or health professional to put his or her name behind any study that does not support an LGBT worldview.
Our psychosexual and relational development profoundly impacts our lives. Everyone of us walks in the shadow of our personal experience. We know this intuitively, with every fibre of our being.
Our negligence and apathy concerning child psychosexual development is nothing short of child abuse

Group 6 / 600+ | Changing Society (and Slowly Boiling Frogs)
Activists are deliberately and meticulously working to change society. We are now at the business end of a multi decade strategy. Some changes are needed; others are cataclysmically and generationally destructive. Here you will find sources relating to this.
The systematic rebuilding of our culture to comply with LGBT+ dogma is obvious. That we are being played for fools is evident. To continue to ignore this is perhaps the most cowardly offense of our age, for the damage we inflict by our apathy is immeasurable, and this we inflict upon our children, and theirs.

This article has become a “bible” to the movement. Widely re-published, it explains how to conduct the widespread propaganda campaign that we have been subject to for decades. It explains how to confuse, deceive and demonise opponents. The methods are not based on valid arguments but on the use of emotional manipulation, the gaining of widespread sympathy and attaining approval for homosexual behaviour. http://www.massresistance.org/system/page_not_found.html
603 “Safe sex ad tops complaints list” Simon Canning, The Australian, December 14, 2011.
Though the Advertising Standards Bureau rejected the complaint, it was a heated and contentious issue at the time, not primarily (I suspect) because of the gender issue, but because the advertisers chose to use Bus Shelter advertising, which meant children were daily going to see and be desensitised. This was however probably the whole idea. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/media/safe-sex-ad-tops-complaints-list/story-e6frg996-1226221684799
604 “Same-sex marriage in the United States” Wiki commentary re the development of homosexual marriage in the USA. Notably, as elsewhere, this change has only occurred through court rulings or legislature (i.e. politicians and manoeuvring politicians). If this seems like a harsh overstatement, consider also that of 28 states where US voters have been given the choice to amend the constitution to protect the current definition of marriage, the voters in all 28 states voted to approve the amendments. That is to say, judges and politicians will allow what the US electorate has clearly shown it does not want. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Same-sex_marriage_in_the_United_States
