The Heterosexual Questionnaire

by Martin Rochlin Ph. D. *



1. What do you think caused your heterosexuality?
2. When and how did you first decide you were a heterosexual?
3. Is it possible your heterosexuality is just a phase you may grow out of?
4. Is it possible your heterosexuality stems from a neurotic fear of others of the same sex?
5. If you've never slept with a person of the same sex, is it possible that all you need is a good Gay lover?
6. To whom have you disclosed you heterosexual tendencies ? How did they react ?
7. Why do you heterosexuals feel compelled to seduce others into your life style ?
8. Why do you insist on flaunting your heterosexuality ? Can't you just be what you are and keep it quiet?
9. Would you want your children to be heterosexual, knowing the problems they would face ?
10. A disproportionate majority of child molesters are heterosexual. Do you consider it safe to expose your children to heterosexual teachers ?
11. With all the societal support marriage receives, the divorcee rate is spiraling. Why are there so few stable relationships among heterosexuals ?
12. Why do heterosexuals place so much emphasis on sex ?
13. Considering the menace of overpopulation, how could the human race survive if everyone were heterosexual like you ?
14. Could you trust a heterosexual therapist to be objective ? Don't you fear they might be inclined to influence you in the direction of their own leanings ?
15. How can you become a whole person if you limit yourself to compulsive, exclusive heterosexuality, and fail to develop your natural homosexual potential ?
16. There seem to be very few happy heterosexuals. Techniques have been developed which might enable you to change if you really want to. Have you considered trying aversion therapy ?

* The Heterosexual Questionnaire reverses the questions that are very often asked of lesbians and gay men by non-gay people. By reversing the questions the heterosexual person can get some intellectual and emotional insight as to how oppressive and discriminatory a 'straight' frame of reference can be to gay men and lesbians. The Heterosexual Questionnaire was provided to One-In-Teen by Brian Miller, Ph.D. and the Los Angles Lesbian and Gay Center for Community Services.
