Quote# 88888

Dr. Nicolosi, a noted psychologist who works with homosexuals said he has never met a homosexual man who has had a good relationship with his father. Homosexual men are simply looking for the love (in the good non-sexual meaning of the word) that they never obtained growing up. The same with lesbians in regards to their moms.

Did "Dr. Nicolosi" get his degree from Patriot Bible College bychance?

This "Dr." Nicolosi sounds just as ridiculous as Freud. How many straight men do you think had good relationships with their fathers? I sure as hell didn't.

Isn't "Dr" Nicolosi the guy who can't even remember where he got his degree because the "university" building was so nondescript? He sure sounds like a reputable psychologist.

If this man was a doctor, he'd know that homosexuality was conclusively proven to be biological over four years ago.

I doubt Dr. Nicolosi's credentials. Highly.

Oh, how precious! 1950's pop psych, vomited up and served as hash!

So straight people are just looking for the love their opposite gender parent didn't give them? You're talking shite. Don't make me get my knife....

"Dr. Nicolosi, a noted psychologist who works with homosexuals said he has never met a homosexual man who has had a good relationship with his father."

This could be said for a good portion of heterosexual men, too. It also doesn't explain bi-sexual men, nor lesbians.

"Dr." Nicolosi is thus not doing anything but providing his obvious bias in place of a professionally researched and scientifically supported opinion of a phenomenon, which means that "Dr." Nicolosi can be safely ignored.

"Homosexual men are simply looking for the love (in the good non-sexual meaning of the word) that they never obtained growing up."

Which, again, could be applied (probably incorrectly) to anyone in a similar situation. Why single out homosexual men?

"The same with lesbians in regards to their moms."

I'm really not sure where this idea comes from, but I am sure that it's not supported by any sort of factual data. It sounds like not much more then pop psychology some religious nut with a fake degree came up with to sell books and seminars, and it just took off from there because it "sounds reasonable" to your average fundy idiot.

I'm gay, and I have a great relationship with both my parents. In fact it is far better than most I've seen. The love I have for my boyfriend has nothing to do with feeling neglected by my dad. Just the other day, he said he feels his purpose in life was to bring me into this world. I highly doubt your father could ever find such respect and admiration for you.

I know this is so cliche, but...

To be fair, has he ever met a straight man who had a good relationship with his father? Seriously, it's not that rare of an issue.

What are this "doctor's" medical credentials?

8/11/2012 7:50:15 AM

In fact his resume say that he graduated from the New School for Social Research , a progressive-leaning college in New York, and, then, obtained his PhD from the California School of Professional Psychology.

Given that he's Catholic, he couldn't obtain his diplom from Bob Jones or Pensacola Christian Colleges, given that they think that the Pope is the Anti-christ.

If we assume that his resume is false, his diploms come maybe from a shitty college created by the Society of Saint Pius X, which includes the "bishop" and "historian" Williamson.

The "noted" psychologist is suffering from confirmation bias and bad research.

"Dr. Nicolosi, a noted psychologist . . ."

He's noted for falsifying data in his papers. Also for his bigotry and hatred.

I'm pretty sure Nicolosi is also the guy quoted elsewhere on here who claims that you can stop your son being gay by showing him your cock. A real fountain of professional expertise.

And the America Psychological Association somehow managed to miss that glaring correlation?

It's amazing how fundies find simple explanations for things that all the experts miss isn't it?

And they accuse us of being arrogant?

@Ebon

"If this man was a doctor, he'd know that homosexuality was conclusively proven to be biological over four years ago."

I don't think that's the case. There is general agreement that it's not something that is chosen but the exact cause is still open to debate. I'd say "conclusively proven" is a bit strong. Outside the realm of mathematics, it's almost impossible for something to be "conclusively proven."

Then maybe he should look harder. Even if this were true, how does that make homosexuality something which should be banned or shunned in society?

I'm an orphan. As a result I've had sexual relationships only with privet hedges.

Well, my lesbian friend seems to have a pretty solid relationship with her mom, and my straight self never got along with my dad, so I'm gonna go ahead and call bullshit.

What, does this shitpump think every bisexual underwent parental divorce?

I take it your Dr. Nicolosi has only ever met gay men from deeply religious or conservative families that terrorise their children if they don't turn out 'normal' or acceptable to their lifestyle and 'moral' standards. Coming out of the closet tends to make those kind of parents flip the hell out. Gay or not if they went to a psychologist in the first place then its a fair bet they have issues, which many shrinks have an obsession with pinning on parents as a matter of course. Maybe they are the ones unresolved Daddy issues?
