I'm not calling it "fake news". I'm taking into account people who genuinely want to be treated for the crimes that have been committed against them, instead of people who externalize it, lash out on other unrelated people, and openly victimize themselves while begging for attention through negative actions. It's like a child doing something you explicitly told them not to, just because they're looking for any kind of recognition whatsoever, which they were denied from their parent (or parents, in some cases) of the opposite gender. To use a term you'd probably tote around in your handbag, it's "settled science".
It's a mental illness not in a religious, Puritanical sense, but because the victims aren't getting the treatment they need to change for the better. The cure isn't a band, or EST, or drugs. It's talking to them, letting them know that people do care, and that one day they will find someone to help them forget about the past and finally move forward towards the future. Most couples, regardless of heteronormativity, will base itself on past experiences, and a homosexual couple will, for this very reason, base itself on a history of neglect. This carries over into the relationship itself, with both parties struggling to "take" from the partnership, without "giving". This is why homosexual relationships are so volatile, a similarity that is only found in physically or psychologically abuse heterosexual relationships which, as we should both agree, is a sign that one or both persons in need psychological help. A man who beats his wife needs anger management. A woman who spends all of her husband's money needs financial management. A lesbian girl who rotates partners every two weeks needs someone to tell them they matter.
