Pressure to keep up: status imbalance
a major factor in stress in gay men

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 2/29/2020 11:39:09 AM

The persistence of mental health hardships among gay and bisexual men, which endure even as LGBTQ people gain greater acceptance and civil rights, can be explained at least in part by the corrosive effects of status consciousness, competitiveness and racism within the gay community itself. Those are the striking and potentially controversial findings of a study published in January in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology that may broaden appreciation of the unique stressors faced by gay and bisexual men. Gay and lesbian people have a more than fourfold higher rate of suicide than the general population. Among transgender people, the gulf is even wider.

Comments:

Essentially, the research says that homosexuality is a mental illness. Their stresses come from not being "gay" enough or not having enough sex per the self-defined norms of the gay community, rather than the usual excuse that straight people cause their misfortunes.

Misleading headline ignores the fact written in the article itself: "Pachankis and his colleagues found that the stress gay and bisexual men reported experiencing related to their community’s preoccupation with sex." Period. Full stop. The end.

In my experience, gay people overcompensate for their abnormality by being outwardly happy and bubbly all of the time. Then you have the stressed-out biatches like Barack Obama who feel the need to scold, scorn and treat all others not like them on a condescending, hateful way. Just like Forrest Gump's chocolates you never know what you're going to get. My philosophy is live and let live but too many of them are not satisfied with that.

Oh fer Chrissake. They’re stressed out because they’re constantly preoccupied with their abnormalities. Previous posters are right - they’re mentally ill.

Status seems to be the whole driver of the LGBTQABC movement - to the point of being made president. They should learn to distinguish and respect the difference between toleration and admiration. No rational person admires qu**rs for being queer, nor will they ever - no matter how much scatology is directed at them.

Homosexuals have long blamed their stress and misery on the lack of acceptance and social stigma attached to their sexuality. Now, those social stigmas have been replaced by acceptance, even praise among some circles for bravery and 'strength of character' for coming out of the closet... But, the God-shaped hole in the middle of the soul remains and, in an accepting environment, seems even MORE noticeable as the external scapegoats have been slaughtered, leaving the internal emptiness nowhere to hide.

Being gay is all about sex. It's all it's ever been. It's an abnormal belief, and abnormal behavior. Fighting to make people think it's normal when innately most people know it's not, causes stress. Trying to live an abnormal life when all around you people are living a socially acceptable life takes it's toll.

fta: "As the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology paper describes, men in all global cultures are inclined toward competitiveness and driven by a need to prove their manhood. Thus, any subculture composed entirely of the male sex – think the NFL or a frat house – is likely to be intrinsically status conscious. Within gay male culture, such competition is compounded by the fact that members compete for social and sexual gain and for sex with each other." With men and women, it's the eternal battle of the sexes. Men and women, while competitive can commiserate with their friends about their separate anxieties and take comfort. But when both parties are on the same team, there really is no team, just competition. All the psycho craziness of both sexes in one package. The most catty and vain humans I have met have been homosexual men. This is not as intended!!!

I find this hard to believe. Every homosexual on TV is bright, bubbly, smart, accepting and accepted, funny and always cheerful. The person everyone turns to when there is a problem, be it a teen-ager having boyfriend/girlfriend problems or an adult with problems with the spouse, They always have the answer.

So tired of the totally disproportional amount of articles and media about LGBTect the leftist media covers, for a group that represents only 2-3% of the population (unless we're talking San Francisco). But then the leftist/commie media and Hollywood is disproportionately populated with these unusual people, "unusual" being used as a description because it means what it says when 97% of the population is different from them in a usual, normal state. In a one on one basis they can be treated with respect and empathy, which is the conservative manner. But we're supposed to treat them as a group like they're just like us, when they clearly aren't. Face it leftists, your generalized victim groups are starting to crowd out the other victim groups you've highlighted the past three decades. What to do? Implode as you are now doing because you can't keep track of the conflicts. Leftist, high-emotion media such as the Guardian will continue to cover stories because they can't help themselves; they're as mentally imbalanced as the subjects they want to cover.

#6 really gets to the heart of the matter; the God-shaped hole in their souls can never be filled because their focus is on transforming their abnormality into normality. Their identity as a human being is directly tied to their sexual preference and therefore they attempt to equate their activity to the fertility-centered heterosexual union, something that is impossible. A father and a mother produce children, and subsequent grandchildren. The coupling of men and women keep the human race a going concern. Sexual union between heterosexuals have a meaning and purpose that same-sex hanky-panky can never equal. Homosexuals and lesbians (and whatever else) do not have families in which to invest their time, talents and love over a lifespan. Instead they buy fancy houses, expensive cars and take exotic vacations in a vain attempt to give some sort of meaning to their lives. Our rural subdivision is only 150 miles north of San Francisco and out of 20 permanent residents we have one single gay, one gay couple and four lesbians couples. Twenty years ago when we were all new owners and building our houses we had great fun with lots of get-togethers at each other's temp cabins exchanging info on septic tanks and well pumps. For the first ten years we would celebrate the major holidays at each others now-finished homes. After Obama was elected that all changed and we were constantly challenged because we were active in the Tea Party; how could we belong to a racist and homophobic group? They only do a "holiday gathering" now and the last one I suffered through was six years ago. We're polite if we run into each other at the gate or in town, and that's just fine with me.

Im calling BS on this. The problem that Ive seen in the "community" is the refusal to grow up, attend all the parties, and never ever get old. With that group, its about looking as good as possible for as long as possible for the purposes of, yes, sex. Those NOT in the community go about their lives just like everyone else. Well adjusted gay men dont frequent bars, dont care about fashion, could care less what some body conscious twink thinks of them. These people happen to be gay. Its not who they are. They dont lisp, they are construction workers, police and firemen, doctors and farmers.

ICE announced Friday that it had defied a California sanctuary law and arrested a repeat-felon illegal immigrant outside of San Francisco’s Hall of Justice this week, prompting angry denunciations from local officials. The arrest is the latest escalation between the Trump administration and California over immigration enforcement, with the feds pushing back hard on the state’s sanctuary policies through lawsuits, subpoenas, and now flouting the state’s own laws. ICE said it had tried eight times to get local authorities to turn over the man, who was not identified by name, but each time those “detainer” requests were rebuffed. So they tracked him down

The Trump administration finalized a new policy Friday that paves the way for Homeland Security to collect DNA from all illegal immigrants the department arrests, fulfilling the terms of a 2005 law that the government has been evading for years. Under the new rules, posted online Friday and slated to be published in the Federal Register next week, Attorney General William P. Barr can cancel an Obama-era waiver and order collection of DNA by agents and officers in both U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Voters from predominantly black and Latino neighbourhoods were forced to wait for hours to cast their ballot in Texas on Super Tuesday after long lines were reported at some polling stations. Election officials in the Houston area were forced to send in additional voting machines as thousands of people reportedly waited for up to five hours to vote at one station. The long waits came after the closure of hundreds of polling stations across Texas by the Republican-led state government since 2012. MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow suggested voting difficulties had been caused in part by the “systematic” closing of stations in areas with high turnout for minority

The FBI missed opportunities to stop domestic terrorists from killing Americans because field offices failed to further investigate individuals who had been labeled homegrown violent extremists, the Justice Department watchdog said in a scathing report released Wednesday. At least six terrorists who later carried out attacks killing a total of 70 people were on the FBI’s radar prior to the attacks. However, the agents quickly closed the cases, concluding the suspects were not threats to national security, according to the Justice Department inspector general. Among the more high-profile individuals the FBI failed to recognize as a potential source of terrorism were Omar Mateen, who killed 49

A reality TV dance teacher in Tennessee has been sentenced to nine months behind bars for raping a 16-year-old boy and exposing him to HIV, which the teen later tested positive for, according to reports. John Conner III—who appeared on the Lifetime show “Bring It”—did not tell the teen that he was HIV-positive when they had sex several times after meeting on social media in 2005, prosecutors say. The boy later tested positive for HIV after having sex with Conner, WREG said.

What Super Tuesday tells us is that a lot of Democrats would rather risk losing to President Trump with Joe Biden than allow a socialist like Bernie Sanders to hijack their party. That’s good for America, but it’s also a treacherous Hail Mary pass for the party. The 77-year-old former vice president showed why, moments after taking the stage in Los Angeles on Tuesday night: He mistook his wife for his sister. “They switched on me,” he tried to explain. He went on to give a good speech about healing the nation, and dutifully kept to the script on his teleprompter.
