Abstract

Whether homosexual feelings are distributed categorically or dimensionally remains controversial. In an earlier series of studies, medical students anonymously reported a dimensional distribution of homosexualfeelings, the ratio of homosexual to heterosexual feelings in men correlating with opposite sex-linked behaviors in childhood and adolescence, and, in both, sexes, with current degree of opposite sex identity. Prevalence of homosexual feelings was markedly higher than that foundin nonanonymous studies. In the present investigation, a study of male twins allowed investigation of the findings in 411 educationally more representative subjects. Awareness of some homosexual feelings was reported in adolescence by 20% and currently by-12%. As with medical students, the majority of those who reported some homosexual feelings were predominantly heterosexual, which could be considered to indicate such feelings were distributed dimensionally. Correlations between degree of homosexual feelings and avoidance of contact sport in childhood and adolescence, current wish to be of the opposite sex, and opposite sex identity remained present when subjects with equally bisexual and predominantly homosexual feelings were excluded from analysis. The finding that the majority of men with homosexual feelings are predominantly heterosexual renders implausible the theory that homosexual feelings result from fear of heterosexuality.
