Homosexuality still growing, heterosexuality still shrinking
By Paul Cameron

The CDC just published its 2019 iteration of the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System—a nationwide survey of US high school students that has been run since 1991. The growth of homosexuality and the corresponding shrinkage of heterosexuality continues.

The good news? Table 1 reveals essentially no change in reported sexual experience from 2017—just over half of HS kids continued to report sexual experience. Better, over the past two years the ratio of reported homosexual v. heterosexual sex seems to have stayed about the same with 13.5% of those reporting sex saying the experience was homosexual (vs 10% in 2001-09).

The bad news is very bad.

What the 9th through 12th graders called themselves or identified as their sexuality is depicted in Table 2.

Self-avowed homosexuals are increasing.

The uncertain or confused are also increasing.

Indeed, over the past 15 years, HS students calling themselves gay have increased 124% and those saying they are uncertain has gone up 73%. Conversely, those calling themselves straight has declined 8.4%. Since many of the undecided will end up in the gay camp, it is likely that about one of 8 current high school students will graduate in the homosexual camp.

Thus, the contention of the church—that unsuppressed, homosexuality will grow—is validated. Further empirical outcomes will indicate whether its growth will eventually result in another Sodom

But Sodom was dominated by male homosexuality.

HS girls more than HS boys reported having engaged in homosexual sex and girls were more apt to report a gay preference. Girls also more frequently said they were transsexual.

The historic church never systematically addressed the phenomenon of ‘transsexualism.’ Every age and many societies had women who dressed as men, or men who dressed as women—the Judeo—Christian ethic clearly condemned these activities. Ours is the first civilization to systematically mutilate genitals to somewhat resemble the genitals of the opposite sex, declare the mutilated ‘legal’ females or ‘legal’ males, and then punish the non-mutilated if they refuse to accord their mutilated ‘real’ or ‘legal’ status.

Something is troubling children in the West—especially girls. Only biological girls might get pregnant and produce the babies our civilization needs. With LGBT-ism increasing, especially among girls, the US seems in uncharted territory. Can a society endure, much less retain its ascendance, when its girls go wild?

Both Freud and JD Unwin argued that successful societies restrained sexuality whilst sexually liberated societies deteriorated. Unwin held inhibition of female sexuality was key to society’s survival. Female sexuality is being freed from almost every constraint. If Unwin is correct, the West’s fall is certain.

Research on child sexual abuse suggests lesbians are about as apt to molest girls as straight men are. Gays, however, are more apt than either to molest (mainly) boys. Acknowledging this gay reality, Afghanistan & Pakistan maintain healthy demographics by sacrificing thousands of their boys to gays following the ancient ‘boys are for pleasure, women are for children’ rule. Given that adult/child sex is strongly condemned in the West, it does not seem likely that it will adopt the Afghan/Pakistani model to bolster its demographic—especially since it fails to satisfy female homosexuality But how to satisfy female homosexuality while maintaining a healthy demographic is obscure.

Dr. Paul Cameron was the first scientist to document the harmful health effects of second-hand tobacco smoke. He has published extensively on LGBT issues in refereed scientific journals. In 1978 he predicted that equal treatment of homosexuality and heterosexuality would strongly favor growing homosexuality and shrinking heterosexuality. His prediction is coming true.
