Lesbian teens are having two to seven times as many babies as their heterosexual peers

Lesbian teens are having two to seven times as many babies as their heterosexual peers

[Ed. – Interestingly, this finding comes at a time when the teen pregnancy rate overall has dipped to a record low. Having a child out of wedlock has always been a recipe for disaster for the teens involved, who if they stay together are often condemned to a life of poverty and self-denial that generally leads to one or another form of abuse. Why lesbians would seemingly embrace this weighty responsibility is puzzling.]

One thing you would think lesbians wouldn’t have to deal with is pregnancy. Seems like a solid assumption, right? Not so much.

Remarkably, research shows teen who identify [sic] as lesbian have significantly higher pregnancy rates than their heterosexual peers. I know what you’re thinking, but it’s true. It’s also true for teen gay males: they are substantially more likely to impregnate their sexual partners than are heterosexual males. …

After I presented this information to an acquaintance, he said, “That’s scientifically impossible!”  But that’s only true if you assume that being gay or lesbian is a sexual absolute — the way someone is, unchangeably what they are. Unless biology has transformed overnight, it means women who identify as lesbians are having a whole lot of guy sex. And gay-identified youth are having a great deal of girl sex.

But being gay or lesbian is supposed to be absolute and unchangeable — like sex, race, or ethnicity. This pregnancy phenomenon confounds that narrative in a dramatic way, and it can’t be ignored. Could it be that being lesbian or gay is not quite as absolute or fixed as gender theorists want us to believe?
