    I like anime, so every one assumes I am a pedophile. Never worry what ignorant people think.

To put this another way, being attracted to people of the same sex does not cause mental distress, being ostracized for who you are attracted to can.
    Kids like to fit in and the ultimate in not fitting in is to discover you are homosexual. The mental distress these kids must feel when they desperately want to be attracted to the opposite sex but just can't do it has to be a nightmare for them.

    So by your own handpicked definition, it's not a deviancy.

    Who says they desperately want to be attracted to the opposite sex? You can document that is something most gay kids feel?

    You forgot the part where I said only 2% of America is gay and that is the definition of deviant behavior. Read the definition I posted earlier then run along with your captain.

    Deviance (sociology), actions or behaviors that violate social norms

    Apparently you are completely out of arguments to support your position if you have to resort to asking me for something you could easily Google yourself. Do you honestly believe when a kid discovers he is so different from his peers that he feels no distress?

    You do not even understand what you are linking to. Let me quote a brief section of your source:

    Given the significant changes in the social statuses of LGBT people24 and the use of various identity labels among youths,51 it is possible that findings from adult samples, or from youth samples collected in the past, may no longer reflect the current relationships between sexual orientation and mental health among youths. As the social acceptance of sexual-minority identities continues to evolve, ongoing collection of data on LGBT youths may identify concomitant changes in mental health disparities.
    Note that it directly references outside factors as causative.

    Actually the number is 25%. Why 25%, you ask? Because in the spirit of hackery you chose the lowest possible estimate, so following your lead I'll take the highest possible estimate, and that number is 25%.

    Yes, and since a majority of Americans believe homosexuality doesn't violate social norms, it doesn't fit your own tailored definition for deviancy.
