Heterosexual questionnaire (Rochlin 1992: 203–4)

1 What do you think caused your heterosexuality?

2 When and how did you first decide you were a heterosexual?

3 Is it possible that your heterosexuality is just a phase you may grow out of?

4 Is it possible that your heterosexuality stems from a neurotic fear of members of the same sex?

5 Isn't it possible that all you need is a good gay lover?

6 If heterosexuality is normal, why are a disproportionate number of mental patients heterosexual?

7 To whom have you disclosed your heterosexuality? How did they react?

8 The great majority of child molesters are heterosexuals (95 per cent). Do you really consider it safe to expose your children to heterosexual teachers?

9 Heterosexuals are noted for assigning themselves and each other to narrowly restricted, stereotyped sex roles. Why do you cling to such an unhealthy form of role playing?

10 Why do heterosexuals place so much emphasis on sex?

11 There seem to be very few happy heterosexuals. Techniques have been developed that you might be able to use to change your sexual orientation. Have you considered aversion therapy to treat your sexual orientation?

12 Why are heterosexuals so promiscuous?

13 Why do you make a point of attributing heterosexuality to famous people? Is it to justify your own heterosexuality?

14 If you've never slept with a person of the same sex, how do you know you wouldn't prefer that?

15 Why do you insist on being so obvious and making a public spectacle of your heterosexuality? Can't you just be what you are and keep it quiet?
