Exactly. The American Psychological Association, the National Association of Social Workers, the American Academy of Child Psychiatrists and the Child Welfare League of America all have policy statements declaring no correlation between homosexuality and child abuse. Most child sexual abusers are, in fact, straight. But it’s hard to imagine a defense attorney standing up in court and asking leniency in sentencing for a client’s sexual activity with underage girls because their heterosexual male client was confused about his sexual identity. According to the National Child Traumatic Stress Network, children of all ages, races, ethnicities and economic backgrounds may experience sexual abuse, and child sexual abuse affects both girls and boys in all kinds of neighborhoods and communities. Straight, gay, it makes no difference. Sexual abuse of children is about an adult taking advantage of them, often by the using his status of power over the minor.
