Abstract:

The evidence indicates that "committed" homosexual relationships are radically different from married couples in several key respects: relationship duration, monogamy vs. promiscuity, relationship commitment, number of children being raised, health risks, rates of intimate partner violence. This book is a compilation of research findings concerning several foundational issues with respect to homosexuality. For decades, the public has not been "getting it straight" from the news media, entertainment media, and academia. Instead, a number of myths have been widely promoted and have taken root in the public mind--myths such as: ten percent of the population is homosexual, people are born homosexual, and homosexuality is harmless. Getting It Straight debunks these myths--primarily by using direct quotations from scholarly articles and publications.
