Is it possible for a gay man to have an Oedipus Complex?
Oedipus is kind of an old idea. Most gay men have poorer relationships with their fathers than straight men. They also have a significantly poorer time with their mothers. So, at least they report. These are true for men who are happy with gay as well as those who are not. although he wrote this in 1976, Bieber’s conclusions have been found over and over again by researchers and therapist. Since 1962 when our volume was published, I have interviewed about 1,000 male homosexuals and 50 pairs of parents of homosexuals. The classic pattern was present in more than 90% of cases. In my entire experience, I have never interviewed a single male homosexual who had a constructive, loving father. A son who has a loving father who respects him does not become a homosexual. I have concluded that there is a causal relationship between parental influence and sexual choice (p. 368). EDIT Topher, none of your cited organizations not criticized Bieber, Bell, Evans and their reports. Produce criticism i
