This myth continues on the path of finding something wrong with LGBTQ+ people. If you are born LGBTQ+ and you did not choose it, then someone or something must be blamed for this happening.
- If there is not a good parental bond with the same sex parent then the child will become LGBTQ+.
- The parents did not shield the child from bad influences.
- If a child is sexually abused they will become LGBTQ+.
No scientifically sound study has definitively linked sexual orientation or identity with parental role-modeling or childhood sexual abuse.
