Gay and Bi teens have higher pregnacy rates

Study finds bisexual females five times more likely and gay males four times more likely than straight counterparts to experience teen pregnancy

GAY teens are more likely than their heterosexual peers to experience pregnancy in America, new data has revealed.

In Minnesota, bisexual females were found to be five times more likely than their heterosexual peers to have been pregnant and gay males were four times more likely than their straight counterparts to get someone pregnant, the Star Tribune reported.

But Professor Juliet Richters, from the University of New South Wales, said the issue is not as big of a problem in Australia.

“What’s happening in America is because of their health system and the highly polarised religious discourse means there’s a lot more pregnancy,” she said.

“They have more small towns — we are more urbanised.

“There’s also nobody in their schools prepared to say back off, don’t be rude - he’s just like the rest of you’.”

Teenwise Minnesota discovered the trend in teen pregnancies in the LGTBQI community after a statewide survey of high school student health, which asked students their sexual orientation.

The survey also found that LGTBQI teens were more sexually active with about 49 per cent of gay males reporting that they have had sex compared to 26 per cent of straight males, and 51 per cent of lesbian respondents saying they have had sex compared with 23.5 per cent of straight females.

That awkward time in life when you're trying to prove you aren't gay? Smile

I think of the hardships I've faced being a white straight person who people assume is Christian and think how much harder it might be for me if I wasn't fortunate enough to be born as I am.

yes that is actually the result rags Cool
when they are teens and still not sure they are gay most likely

I don't know why, maybe compensating, although it could just be a number of different factors as the gene we know effects sexuality (although we believe there is others) does so by increasing the receptiveness to male pheromones, so it really in the hormonal part of humans and we are only just starting to understand that.

It's still,a strange phenomenon though?
Becaeue that would also mean that gay teens were having more sex with females than straight teens were?

Because the more you have unprotected sex the higher the chances of getting someone pregnant obviously?!

So....how come they're having more sex with females, than straight guys are??

They sure are trying to prove a lot, and many times too!

And that they were having sex with females who clearly hadn't heard of contraception. Laughing

that is the numbers Wink
who knows maybe she was that bad she turned them Razz Razz Razz Razz

I think it is more likely that the area of the brain that controls sexual behaviors is enlarged, probably due to higher use of that area because they have to think about their sexuality more scratch

AND the number is higher in lesbians than gay men. queen
