But beside that point, I do wonder if there is credence that homosexuality is a developmental delay. When I was working on my undergrad, there were psychoanalytic minded professors who were quite certain that homosexuality was simply arrested sexual development. And to be honest, I do feel that way sometimes. I identify much easier with men and I'm not particularly fond of women. It makes me wonder if I never grew out of the "girls have cooties" stage. Weirder still is I had girlfriends when I was in elementary school but my desire to hang around girls sharply declined around the time I entered puberty. In fact, I would like to see studies on gay men and women's attitudes towards the opposite sex to see if there is a correlation.
Freud seemed to feel that homosexuality had to be examined on a case by case basis because some individuals demonstrated higher biological predispositions than others. I like that he viewed humans as innately bisexual and that we develop into heterosexuals and homosexuals based on a mixture of socialization and biological influences. But if Freud could see homosexuality as just a normal variation of sexual function, then I certainly can't complain.
