Parenting, homosexuality and gender atypical behavior

Dr. Warren Throckmorton, friend o’the blog, is going to be reporting on the findings of a just-published Finnish study.

Now I happen to believe that *I* fall a good deal under the reparative therapy conclusions that many of the problems young men face in their sexual determination has to do with wounds real or imagined with the father relationship.  So naturally:

A distant (cold) relationship with the father of gay men was expected on the basis of previous studies; however, in this study, gay men reported warmer paternal, as well as maternal, relationships than heterosexual men did.

Leave it to Dr. T. to blow that out of the water.  Well, nudge it real hard and throw it a towel maybe.

Find it here:  http://wthrockmorton.com/2009/05/18/parenting-homosexuality-and-gender-atypical-behavior/.  Were I you, I’d bookmark him for followups on this study.  I am.
