Why do modern women choose the path of lesbianism? It may sound like a philosophical question, but we’ll try to dig a little bit deeper to shed light on this issue. For many years, homosexuality has been considered a serious psychological disorder that violated all religious and moral principles, according to which women could maintain sexual relationships with men only. But for the better of worse, time works great changes.
In 1973 American Psychiatric Association decided to strike homosexuality off the list of mental diseases and provide psychological support to these extraordinary personalities. In a quite short period of time, sexual revolution broadened humanity’s moral horizons and gave people freedom to change their sexual orientation. Today, lesbians don’t fear to talk about their sexual orientation, because homosexuality has gradually become the part of a modern society.
Scientists and researchers surveyed a great number of homosexual women and came to a conclusion that lesbianism can be caused by various physiological and psychological factors. They still think that homosexuality is a psychological disorder, triggered by misunderstanding, dysfunctional family atmosphere, violence, inferiority and social vulnerability. Women with high levels of testosterone in their blood are more likely to become lesbians too. Read on to find out a lot of interesting things about women and understand why they become lesbians.
1. Dysfunctional family atmosphere
Negative family environment is often the main reason for many psychological disorders, because during the pre-adolescent and adolescent periods, family issues and a lack of contact between parents and children exert a big negative influence on the child’s personality development.
Psychologists state that the latent tendency towards lesbianism is embedded in the subconscious mind of every girl. The life path and sexual orientation the girl will sooner or later choose, depends mostly on the process of upbringing and the role of parents in her life. During the transformation from a girl to a woman, every girl faces a great number of questions and inner contradictions that create her identity. If she doesn’t find correct answers to these important questions and parents can’t get their daughter in the right frame of mind, the girl starts living according to her own beliefs, rules and values.
