Human experimentation. Yes, I said it.
What I'm saying is that the only way to prove the early childhood thing is to put several children through a simulation of rape/exposing them to pornographic materials and track them as they age to see how they've matured.
It's terrible, but it would help a lot.
>It's terrible, but it would help a lot.
It wouldn't, you fucking moron. Traumatizing helpless children to glean a tiny bit of knowledge by testing hypotheses that we already know are bullshit helps nobody but you and your fantasies.
>ask gay person if they were traumatized when younger
Being sexually harassed by female peers in my early teens and only allowing myself to form friendships with males may have consolidated any doubts about my sexuality.
But family life was/is generally happy and the theorised dichotomy of Mother/Father influence is completely inapplicable to my situation.
No nazi experiments needed to figure out 99% of the origins for us subversive degenerates.
As a quick note, in order for experiments to be scientific, they require controlled variables. Controlling variables within human lives is very difficult.
One way scientists try to counter this is by increase the number of experiments, or the sample size, that they study. The thought is that by increasing the variance in people you're studying, you can then average your results and that'll reduce the chance that the results you get might be an outlier from the general population of people.
The catch to this is that, for some things, you can get fairly effective results just by letting people go about their daily lives and conducting a survey with an even larger sample size, to further reduce the chance that the non-controlled variables are creating outliers in the study.
So, with that, we can either do something like
- Rape 10,000 children and study them.
or we can do something like
- Survey 100,000 people using proper statistical methods.
The second type of study provides valid insight, just like the first one, with the added bonus of NOT HAVING TO FUCKING DIDDLE KIDS IN YOUR BAT-SHIT CRAZY /POL/ CAMPS, YOU MENGELE-AGGRANDIZING FUCKWIT.
Hopefully this post will help you understand the beauty that is the study of statistics.
