Sigh. Once again I'm reminded that when you argue with people on the Internet, even when you're right you're wrong. One of the links you provided is to a site talking about people choosing sexual partners who look like their parents which has literally nothing to do with the topic, other than the use of the suspect term imprinting. Also it's incredibly racist, couched in the language of pseudoscience, but with openly racist commenters and links to such lovely things as Vanguard News Network, a deeply racist/white supremacist website. One of then is a link to an article that I literally can't read because of the background, but it could be a legitimate source. I don't have time to research the author but he did go to Trinity College which certainly sounds religious. One of them is a link to a book that clearly hasn't been published or peer reviewed and is only published on a respectable website because the author is apparently a student. Then there's the discussion on this message board.
None of that is science.
I'm glad you don't have an agenda, but when your favorite story is about a guy who was gay for 22 years then changed, perhaps you can see why that could be confusing.
I should have been more careful in what I said, you are right about that. I meant to say that homosexuality isn't caused by abuse and that orientation isn't caused by abuse. Certainly sexual confusion, ritual repetition, or other problems could come out of it.
Something being on the internet doesn't make it true. You're more than welcome to believe whatever you like, but the science just isn't there and "imprinting" is a suspect term (much like SSA actually) that tends to mostly get used in Christian, reparative therapy circles that have nothing to do with science.
Anyway I'm kind of done with this on a number of levels.
