Example text

Hershberger et al. ( 1 997) found within a group of gays and lesbians that those who attempted suicide had disclosed more completely their sexual orientation to others, had lost more friends because of their disclosure, and had experienced more victimization due to their orientation Whether suicide is more prevalent among gays and lesbians is studied by Remafedi et al. ( 1 998) in a population-based study of adolescents. They found that for males, but not for females, homosexuality was indeed related to suicidal intent and actual attempts.

Reviews of studies indicate that the reported rates of intimate abuse vary, depending on the types of question actually posed to respondents. It is also not clear whether it happens more often in gay or lesbian couples compared to heterosexual couples (Renzetti, 1 998; West, 1 998). It is quite likely, though, that the underlying dynamics in homosexual couples differ from those in heterosexual couples, since there is either no male person who abuses (in lesbian couples) or there are two men who, based on their socialization as men, are equally likely to be the abuser.

S tudies homosexual couples can use different 'weapons', such as threatening to tell other people that the victim is homosexual or telling the victim that this is what she deserves for being a lesbian. With respect to the potential origins of gay and lesbian intimate abuse, it is likely that the same determinants, such as violence in the family of origin, substance abuse and power imbalances, play a role, as in heterosexual relationships, although internalized homophobia could promote abuse as well.
