Notice this refers to a 1998 Study, yet there were studies during the 1970’s which make clear that homosexuals are NOT our sexual abusers of children, nor are women –
(See: Focus On the Facts/Cahill below)
The mystery is WHY American parents don’t know about these studies, generally, as it would be important knowledge in helping them protect their children.
In some of the film/video of the Harvey Milk-Mayor George Moscone shootings in SF in late 70’s, you will also find Senator Diane Feinstein commenting on these studies which make clear that homosexuals are NOT our sexual abusers of children.
It’s very similar, of course, to the question as to why MALE violence in our societies is not a frequent subject
for our press, nor in political discussion, nor common knowledge.
Also in searches, I find that there is increasing “editing” of information on the internet since the Trump takeover of the White House, and even back two decades where right wing info begins to predominate in searches. In other words, harder to find truth; easier to find right wing propaganda.
But to begin with we are still looking at the Kinsey scale which strongly suggests that no one of us is wholly male or female. And, the myth of very low numbers of homosexuals in the population still stands. Rarely, either, will you find any reference to bisexuality in the population. This still has much to do with the efforts of “Christianity” to create a sexual norm, to control human sexuality especially of their members (their minds and their bodies) - but also to control and restrict the sexual behavior of all members of our societies.
They continue as well trying to prevent sex education in our schools, information on birth control and abortion with Gag Rules – and continue to spread lies in propaganda on most all of these subjects.
From my readings, every couple has a 30% chance of having a homosexual child.
What does that suggest for homosexual births?
Additionally, I’ve read that before the coming of the “white” man to Hawaii, homosexuals there were
long held in high esteem and honor for their care of orphaned children there.
But I will relate some information I’m aware of in regard to this subject for you or other readers here –
How is pedophilia different from incest by adult males against children?
From what I’ve read, some researchers feel that pedophiles (males) have no actual sexual orientation.
Some seem to be childlike/suspended in time with their behavior unbelievably in the open at times, including an adult priest tongue kissing a student in a 3rd grade classroom with the nun/teacher present and observing, and the same priest sexually assaulting a young boy on a hospital bed who had just had back surgery and who was in a full body cast. Others seem to be vicious/violent/abductors, some casually involved and others very seriously involved in organized pedophilia networks. You’ll also find in looking at networks that Allen Dulles ran a “Camp for Pedophiles” just off CIA premises to train pedophiles.
See: The Devil’s Chessboard by David Talbot Also see: CIA MKULTRA/Monarch.
In fact much of the Monarch records were ordered destroyed by Dir. Richard Helms when he retired, but nonetheless MKULTRA and CIA activities in using children as homosexual pedophiles, as drug runners and for espionage/spies is shocking enough. This use of children – even kidnapping of children – was funded by our Congress. Again, some very convoluted versions of MKULTRA since editing in June 2016.
This is different from INCEST –
also carried out by males; heterosexual males where this is described at times as “situational pedophilia.”
In the Oedipus Complex, Sigmund Freud betrayed his young female and male clients who had confided in him their sexual abuse by adult males in their families – grandfathers, fathers, uncles, male cousins and male friends of the family. And he did this by making the outrageous suggestion that it is infants, toddlers and young children who are the sexual aggressors against adult males in their families. Today, there are suspicions that Freud, himself, was a pedophile.
Again, women are NOT our sexual abusers of children – and in the case of lesbians it’s pretty much never – however women will sexually abuse children when they come under the influence of a heterosexual male.
The Catholic Nuns are an excellent example of this where they have assisted the Catholic Church in many perversions such as labeling children in their care in Canada as “retarded” in order to collect more money for their care from the Canadian government. The Roman Catholic nun Kosaka Kumiko, 42, allegedly helped the priests cover up anal and vaginal rapes, fondling and oral sex at the institution for deaf students in Argentina. Meanwhile, 40% of Catholic nuns have themselves been beaten and sexually assaulted by Catholic priests. And who knows where these reports will end as Italians tell us that sexual abuse in the Catholic Church has been going on their since the first days of the RCC.

A 1998 Study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that 90% of pedophiles are men, and 95% of these individuals are heterosexual.
Research has indicated that gay men and lesbians are less likely than heterosexual to sexually abuse children.
Perhaps the most egregious and damaging claim promulgated by anti-gay groups is the claim that homosexuality is intrinsically linked to pedophilia and child sexual abuse. The social science research on sexual orientation and child sexual abuse clearly disproves the claim that homosexuals are more likely to molest children.
A 1998 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that 90% of pedophiles are men, and 95% of these individuals are heterosexual. One researcher explained this statistic by noting, "Gay men desire consensual sexual relations with other adult men. Pedophiles are usually adult men who are sexually attracted to pre-pubescent children. They are rarely sexually attracted to other adults. In fact, research has indicated that gay men and lesbians are LESS likely than heterosexuals to sexually abuse children. Two studies that examined the sexual orientation of convicted child molesters found that less than 1% in one study and 0% in the other were lesbian or gay. One psychologist reviewed the existing social science literature on the relationship between sexuality and child sexual abuse and found that “a gay man is no more likely than a straight man to perpetrate sexual activity with children.” Further, “cases of perpetration of sexual behavior with a pre-pubescent child by an adult lesbian are virtually nonexistent.”
Gay rights activists, like all advocates for children’s welfare, oppose child sexual abuse and support equitable age of consent laws that help prevent and punish such abuse.
At least 110,000 children are waiting to be adopted in the US. Approximately 588,00 children are currently in foster care. Barring gay men and lesbians from adopting or foster parenting decreases the number of potential suitable homes for children in need.
Children who remain in foster care for much of their childhood, as do tens of thousands of American children, are more likely to have emotional problems. Some children in foster care live in 20 or more homes by the time they reach the age of 18. Barring gay men and lesbians from adopting or foster parenting is not simply unjust and unethical; it also decreases the number of potential suitable homes for children in need.
Research shows that children raised by gay and lesbian parents are not disadvantaged vis-a-vis their peers raised by heterosexual parents.
Footnote 65 – p.123
A review of 352 medical records of children evaluated for sexual abuse during a 12-month period at a Denver children’s hospital found that less than 1% had been abused by a gay man or a lesbian. Of 269 adult perpetrators of child abuse identified among the 352 cases of abuse, only two were gay or lesbian. The vast majority of the children in the study (82%) “were suspected of being abused by a man or a woman who was, or had been, in a heterosexual relationship with a relative of the child.” And the review concluded that in this sample, " a child’s risk of being molested by his or her relative’s heterosexual partner is over 100X greater [than the risk of being molested] by someone who might be identifiable as being homosexual, lesbian, or bisexual."

In an earlier study of convicted male child molesters in Massachusetts, none of the 175 men were found to have an exclusively homosexual adult sexual orientation or to be primarily attracted to other adult men.

On November 27, 1978, San Francisco mayor George Moscone and supervisor Harvey Milk were assassinated by a rival politician, Dan White, who had resigned from the Board of Supervisors only two weeks prior. Feinstein was close by in City Hall at the time of the shootings, and discovered Milk’s body after hearing the gunshots and going to investigate. Later that day at a press conference originally organized by Moscone to announce White’s successor, Feinstein announced the assassinations to the stunned public, stating: “As president of the board of supervisors, it’s my duty to make this announcement. Both Mayor Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk have been shot and killed.”
Feinstein appears in archival footage and is credited in the Academy Award-winning documentary film The Times of Harvey Milk (1984). She appears again briefly in archival footage, announcing the death of Moscone and Milk in the 2008 film Milk. Feinstein and her position as President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors are also alluded to several times in the movie, and a portrayal of her character has a few off-screen lines.
