Influences on Sexuality and Sexual Orientation

*Please cite and include references- Broderick & Blewitt (2015) must be one of the sources (total of three references in the discussion post)

 

Consider the following perspective from the Just the Facts Coalition, a group comprised of counselors and other helping professionals who work with adolescent children:

Sexual orientation is not synonymous with sexual activity. Many adolescents as well as adults may identify themselves as lesbian, gay, or bisexual without having had any sexual experience with persons of the same sex. Other young people have had sexual experiences with a person of the same sex but do not consider themselves lesbian, gay, or bisexual. This is particularly relevant during adolescence because experimentation and discovery are normal and common during this developmental period. (American Psychological Association, 2013)

Straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and questioning—when it comes to sexuality and sexual orientation, what influences individuals the most?
For this Discussion, review this week’s media presentation, “Perspectives: The ‘Tween’ Years,” reflecting on the factors that influence sexuality and sexual orientation during the tween years. Then, complete the post assigned to you by your Instructor.

Discussion A

Post by Day 4 an explanation of the roles that biology, culture, socialization, and age may play in influencing sexuality. Justify your response with references to this week’s Learning Resources and the current literature. Be specific.

I really appreciate the work all your amazing writers do to ensure that my papers are always delivered on time and always of the highest quality. I was at a crossroads last semester and I almost dropped out of school because of the many issues that were bombarding but I am glad a friend referred me to you guys. You came up big for me and continue to do so. I just wish I knew about your services earlier.
