A Parent’s Guide to Preventing Homosexuality by Joseph and Linda Nicolosi

Growth into Manhood: Resuming the Journey by Alan Medinger
“I am a man and I look to find my completion in woman. But what if a man does not have the inner sense that he is a man? Will he experience the same attractions to a woman? Will she be his “other”? No, and this is critical. If he feels that he is not complete as a man, his first longing will be not for women but for complete manhood; he will be drawn to the masculine in other males. This will be his “other.” This will be his missing rib. This will be his means of attaining completion. It follows, then, that the development of our manhood – finding completion in ourselves – will do great things both to decrease our same-sex attractions and to start drawing us sexually to women.”
