Teenage homosexuality is often the result of homosexual adults seducing and exploiting emotionally vulnerable youths, such as runaways. It is not the finally irrepressible expression of an inborn urge (see homosexuality and genetics).

This is an important issue, given that how a person develops and behaves early in life can have profound effects in later life. For example, given the relevant information about teenage homosexuality in respect to the causes of homosexuality, it is important that teenagers and parents be aware of relevant and accurate information, due to a lot of misinformation or information based on ignorance or mere speculation being offered in the public square. Also, given the existence of ex-homosexuals, if a teenager has already engaged in homosexuality or is a homosexual, there is certainly hope in regards to overcoming homosexuality since the best evidence indicates that engaging in homosexuality is ultimately a matter of choice and so is leaving the homosexual lifestyle. In addition, teenagers and parents should be aware of the negative health effects of homosexual activity in regards to teenager homosexuality. For example, in 2006, the noted pediatric journal Journal of Adolescent Health published a position paper entitled HIV infection and AIDS in adolescents: An update of the position of the Society for Adolescent Medicine. [1] The stated : "Among adolescents and young adults with HIV or AIDS, most infections are acquired by having sex with HIV-infected men."[1] In addition, the Journal of Adolescent Health stated the following:

As of December 31, 2003, almost 38,500 cases of AIDS had been reported in adolescents and young adults 13–24 years old in the United States of America. Previous studies demonstrating that the risk of AIDS increased with the age at infection suggest that a large proportion of people developing AIDS in their third decade of life became infected with HIV as teens.[1]

In regards to this public health care fiasco that certainly had an effect in regards to teenager homosexuality, there was a considerable amount of medical community negligence. In 2007, a journal article abstract for an article in The American Psychologist stated that "gay and bisexual male adolescents and young adults in the United States have been disproportionately impacted by the HIV pandemic" and that gay and bisexual adolescents and young adults in the United States have had "steadily increasing rise in their HIV infection rates".[2]

Teenager Homosexuality and Older Homosexuals Preying on Vulnerable Youth

The pro-homosexual publication The Advocate, in 1992 made the following admission in regards to homosexuality and HIV infection in American youth:

Gay boys and straight girls who are having sex for money, shelter, love - they are at risk. And our community, the gay and lesbian community - and I particularly fault gay men here - has done nothing to try to help our youth. Gay men view these boys as recreational toys to be used. I have heard many stories of HIV-positive men having unprotected sex with boys. They don’t think it matters.[3]

In 1991, the medical researcher Kruks reported the following in the Journal of Adolescent Health regarding homosexuality and HIV infection among youth:

Gay male street youth, as well as non-lesbian female street youths, seem to be particularly vulnerable for emotional as well as sexual exploitation...

These relationships are often extremely damaging for a number of reasons. The "sugar daddy" usually presents himself to the youth in a loving caretaker role. For a street youth who has a past history of rejection and/or abuse, the promise of being loved and cared for is a compelling one. However, these relationships in many ways have similar dynamics to incest.

Many gay youths coming to YSD [Youth Services Dept. of Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Community Service Center] for services have long histories of being involved in a succession of "sugar daddy" relationships. Each of these is a cycle of falling in love, believing that life will now be wonderful forever and that this older adult truly loves the young person, discovering that in fact it is just sex that the adult wants, feeling the impact of one more betrayal, and ending up on the streets again. The whole cycle last an average of 1-2 months, and the youth often becomes extremely suicidal at the end of each cycle.[4][5]

In 1995, the medical journal Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine stated:

Another group at high risk for HIV infection is young men reporting sex with other men....Many young gay men tested in homeless youth centers reported exchanging money or drugs for sex, which may place them at high risk for HIV infection. Young men who are homeless or runaways who barter for sex with same-sex partners may not consider themselves gay and thus may beyond the reach of prevention messages targeting the gay community.[6]

Time Magazine Report on Teenager Homosexuality and Liberal Media Bias

John Cloud is a homosexual activist who writes for Time magazine and wrote the October 10, 1995 cover story for Time Magazine which was entitled “The Battle Over Gay Teens.”[7] The article was a typical example of liberal bias in regards to the media coverage of the homosexuality issue. Specifically, John Cloud’s article rendered a positive portrayal homosexual teenagers who are establishing networks of Gay Straight Alliance clubs on campuses all over the United States.[7] According to the Traditional Values Coalition, most readers of Time magazine were unaware of was that John Cloud is a homosexual who had previously written for the liberal Washington City Paper in Washington, DC. about his visit to a "homosexual sex orgy club in Washington, DC."[7]
