Abstract

Few research reports have analyzed the prices of youth victimization among people who identify as “mostly heterosexual” (MH) when compared to other intimate orientation teams. For the current research, we used a far more comprehensive assessment of negative youth experiences to increase previous literary works by examining if MH people’ connection with victimization more closely mirrors compared to sexual minority people or heterosexuals. Heterosexual (letter = 422) and LGB (letter = 561) and MH (letter = 120) individuals had been recruited online. Participants finished surveys about their negative youth experiences, both maltreatment by grownups ( e.g., youth real, psychological, and intimate punishment and youth home disorder) and peer victimization (for example., verbal and real bullying). Especially, MH people had been 1.47 times much more likely than heterosexuals to report childhood victimization experiences perpetrated by grownups. These elevated prices had been comparable to LGB individuals. Outcomes claim that prices of victimization of MH teams are far more much like the prices discovered among LGBs, consequently they are considerably greater than heterosexual teams. Our results help previous research that shows that the MH identification falls inside the umbrella of the minority that is sexual yet small is famous about unique challenges that this team may face compared to other intimate minority teams.
