A study out of Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of UPMC indicates that gay guppies turn to drugs more than their straight peers:
The odds of substance use for lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) youth are on average 190 percent higher than for heterosexual youth, according to a study by University of Pittsburgh researchers published in the current issue of Addiction. What’s more, for some sub-populations of LGB youth, the odds were substantially higher, including 340 percent for bisexual youth and 400 percent for lesbians, researchers found.
Those lesbians sure are rebellious!
The authors of the study, who spent ten years compiling data, point to social homophobia and violence are factors in these kids’ drug use. They also stress that the majority of gays are happy, healthy and well-adjusted. Apparently they’ve never tried to date one!
