From Growing Up Straight: What Every Parent Should Know About Homosexuality, by Peter and Barbara Wyden. Copyright 1968.
Chapter 1: Why Talk About It?
The questions that were on our minds when we set out to gather the facts on this report seemed elementary enough: what really is homosexuality? Why do most of us feel so acutely uncomfortable when we talk (or even think) about it? Is it, as so many people assume, on the increase? Is it recognizable? What causes it? Is it curable? Is it preventable?
The last question is, of course, the most crucial.
The proper time for parent to become aware of these problems, and counter act them, is between the ages of three and ten, long before children engage in activities that really deserve to be called homosexual at all…. This much is certain; it is just about impossible for a homosexual to be the product of warmly loving, sensible parent and a sexually well-adjusted home atmosphere.
This book needed to be written. For if it can help spare even a single person from the tragedy of homosexual life, it will have been well worth the effort.
