Lesbians, gays and bisexual more likely to fall pregnant than hetrosexuals

Filed under: General — Julie @ 7:52 pm Tue 23rd December 2008

Lesbian, gay and bisexual teens in British Columbia are at a higher risk of becoming pregnant or causing a pregnancy than their heterosexual peers, ……. which was published in the Canadian Journal of Human Sexuality and funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.

This research article, which compares findings from the 1992, 1998 and 2003 surveys, showed girls who described themselves as bisexual were nearly twice as likely as girls who said they were heterosexual to have been pregnant. And in 2003 lesbian teens were more than 2.5 times as likely to have been pregnant at least once.

Male teens who described themselves as bisexual or gay were between three and four times more likely than heterosexual boys to have impregnated a girl in 2003 — which is actually a decline from earlier surveys.

It is a common misconception that gay boys don’t have sex with girls.

“We assume that sexual attraction, sexual behaviour and sexual identity are going to be 100 per cent consistent for people. And that’s not the case. Especially not for teenagers, ….


The authors suggest the discrimination, sexual abuse and harassment that gay, lesbian and bisexual teens face may prompt them to indulge in more sexually risky behaviour like having sex without using condoms, starting to have sex before the age of 14 or having multiple sexual partners.

Hetro sexual men, gay men and bisexual men have many of the same issues. It is not surprising to see gay men and bisexual men also suffering from being shamed as deadbeat dads.

All men are in the same position against radical feminism. All men are in the same position to make life better for boys/youth and men.

One can only hope they help each other out.
