Linda Harvey Claims That Sexual Abuse Causes Homosexuality, Doubles Down On Opposition Of Anti-Bullying Laws

She thinks LGBT people do not exist. She has warned people not to allow gay doctors to treat their children. And she opposes anti-bullying laws because she believes they create indoctrination camps. Now,Linda Harvey of Mission America is doubling down on that opposition and claims that sexual abuse causes homosexuality.

In a column on WorldNetDaily, Harvey writes that “anti-bullying laws are a carte blanche for sexual-deviance promotion.” She also goes on to claim that sexual abuse causes homosexuality and bases her claim on a “study” by Dale O’Leary of the anti-gay group NARTH. Here is a portion of the column which can be read in it’s entirety here.

All over the country, parents are discovering that “anti-bullying” programs are a carte blanche for sexual-deviance promotion. Kids learn that unless they nod approvingly at homosexuality and gender-bending, they are all complicit in the worst damage that can ever happen to a fellow student.

This is suicide prevention? How about if we tell them the truth, that homosexuality is unsafe, unnatural, and no one needs to go there emotionally or physically? There’s a well-traveled road out of homosexuality that our kids deserve to hear. It would be a lifesaver for many.

But adult homosexuals in American education are busy driving this exploitative agenda. The National Education Association’s “GLBT Caucus” has led the giant union into every imaginable supporting policy for same-sex “marriage” and “GLBT” expression among students and teachers. This past summer, the NEA representative assembly passed a measure calling for “hate language” to be eliminated from schools because of bullying issues. Given their far-left leanings, do we have any doubt about what this means?

Among recent tragic teen suicides, some were, or were thought to be, involved in homosexuality. But the picture is mostly murky, with activists making unsupported accusations while downplaying any role played by personal struggles, peer conflicts and/or family issues.

Research has shown that teens have a higher risk of self-harm after “coming out,” and effeminate boys have a particularly high risk. The right questions are seldom even asked. Researcher Dale O’Leary has written that, “When an adolescent self-identifies as gay or bisexual, health-care professionals should ask, ‘Was this child sexually abused?'” O’Leary notes that 61 percent of self-identified gay teens in one major study who attempted suicide had been sexually abused.”

Linda Harvey clearly has a problem she needs to seek help for. She is a hate merchant who seeks to destroy people who are different from herself. She has zero compassion for and zero understanding of the LGBT community and what they deal with on a daily basis. People like Harvey should be the ones hiding who they really are. Her hatred, ignorance, and paranoia poisons the world and she should be ashamed to call herself a human being. I wonder what her childhood was like. It’s obvious she has some unresolved issues. Anyone who can hate like that clearly needs therapy and anger management classes.

  • Thank you for this comment. I agree that we all have the right to share our opinions. I am horrified by Linda Harvey and her hatefulness. But I would be a hypocrite if I didn’t at least try to understand her view. I feel that she and many others are simply afraid of difference…in any form. Its a shame and loss for them… I know that I am constantly enriched by the diversity around me. Of course some people don’t have the opportunity to experience diversity in a safe environment where they can learn that there is more that connects us than separates. Having said that I am not sure if I met ms harvy that I would feel any kinship…

  • UGH. What an ultra-maroon. Since we know animals engage in homosexuality (check bonobo chimps)it’s NOT unnatural. And since Jesus himself did not speak ill of gays, it is NOT unChristian. She needs to pull her head out of her arse.

    • didn’t Jesus say something about loving thy neighbor like thy self? guees that means if you hate your fellow man so much you must hate yourself too.

  • So if this stupid bitch is in the emergency room she should have a bracelet that says if you are gay do not treat this idiot. And hopefully there won’t be a straight doctor in sight on that day.

  • Poor misguided old bat. She needs to broaden her horizons a little and maybe get a gay friend. She may actually find her life enriched.

  • I think this crazy bitch needs to be bullied until she winds up in the hospital then she can tell us why anti bullying laws are bad!

  • Wow. Ignorance!

  • The Right has a very clear record of doubling down any time they’re caught in a lie.

    Just look at Herman Cain with his current troubles. He’s doubled and tripled down despite the fact that there is evidence of the contrary.

  • “People like Harvey should be the ones hiding who they really are.” Wrong. I disapprove of this woman’s methods, of her lying, of her manipulation of data but no one should have to hide who they really are. Freedom of speech means freedom of all speech, including that which you disagree with. I personally am transgendered and a lesbian, I know what it’s like to be hated and have to hide who I am. I will have none of it, for anyone. She can say what she wants I just ask that she doesn’t impose it upon the rest of us.

    …and yes I realize that’s exactly what she’s trying to do.

    If I could stop her from doing so, then I would, however these are her opinions.

    I just want to stop the hate, all hate, from all sides.

    • Please pardon my insensitivity, but as I have no one IRL who’s in your situation to ask, I’m intensely curious about the following:

      Since you’re transgendered and a lesbian, I take that to mean you felt like you were a man trapped in a woman’s body who is attracted to women, in which case you are (at heart), a man attracted to women. Wouldn’t that make you heterosexual, in the literal sense, at the soul level?

      Conversely, if you were a woman trapped in man’s body who is attracted to women, you were attracted to women when you had a penis, and are therefore physically a heterosexual.

      I don’t understand the religious right’s obsession with how transgender identification is sinful, seeing how in both scenarios, all transgendered people are straight.

      I hope I didn’t offend you by being too forward, but please correct me if I’m wrong.

      • No I don’t mind questions as long as they are respectful and asked because of true curiosity, trans people are rare so I believe it is a responsibility of mine to inform those who are curious about the situation (goodness knows I would probably be quite curious as well if not trans myself).

        In answer to your questions though: gender identity (being male or female) is separated from sexual orientation. Whatever my physical body dictates I believe myself to be a woman at ‘soul level’ as it were. It is who I am, I was miserable trying to pretend to be male for the first part of my life. Gay or straight, I was, and am, female.

        That being said I still am attracted to females. Genetic women can be attracted to females just as genetic men can be attracted to females. There are some who believe me to be a straight man, there are some who say I cannot be transgendered since I am a lesbian. Such statements seem to imply, by corralary (sp?), that a gay man would want to be a woman and a gay woman would want to be a man.

        I apologize, I’m probably rambling. In a nutshell I was born male but feel I am female. This does not effect who I am attracted to. I have no desire to interact with woman as a man, the idea disgusts me, but I desire to interact with them as a woman. Beleive me, as one who has seen both sides, the dynamics of the two situations are vastly different.

        I hope this answers some questions and isn’t too rambly.
