The Doctors are celebrating Pride with clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho, who is busting common myths and misconceptions about the LGBTQ community.
Myth: People choose to be gay - Dr. Judy notes this "absolutely not true" noting that the vast majority of LGBTQ people have known they were attracted to the same sex since they were very young just like heterosexual people.
Myth: Sexual orientation is learned from peers - "People do not learn sexual orientation," she notes, explaining gay youth are often drawn to one another out of a sense of feeling a kindred spirit and the need to be accepted and supported.
Myth: Gay parents raise gay kids: Dr. Judy explains that around 7 percent of the population identifies as LGBTQ and that statistic is the same for gay parents and heterosexual parents alike.
Myth: LGBTQ relationships always contain "masculine" and "feminine" roles - She says while the idea of each person conforming to gender stereotypes might make some people more comfortable with LGBTQ couples, she says this is not the case and notes that often straight couples do not conform to gender stereotypes and the same is true for LGBTQ couples.
Myth: Being LGBTQ can be cured - She blasts the idea of conversion therapy noting it can cause great emotional and psychological harm and says it is condemned by the vast major medical and psychological groups and associations.
