Sexual abuse in childhood is linked to homosexuality which makes sense from a safety and wellness perspective.

Huh? Sounds like you are contending that some people become homosexual in response to the trauma of CSA. Or that children who will later grow up to become homosexual are more likely to be targeted, preyed upon and victimized by pedophiles. Yikes to both these theories.

Fact is, lots of people of all sexual orientations were sexually abused as children. If gay men and lesbians report high levels of experiencing sex abuse as children, that just goes to show a) researchers made a point of asking them and publicizing the findings; and b) child sex abuse is all too common, affecting a great many people who once were children.

What sexual abuse in childhood is most fundamentally linked to is the criminality and depravity of pedophiles and others who commit child sex abuse. Sexual abuse in childhood is linked to the all-too common phenomenon of bigger people preying on and abusing people smaller and weaker than themselves.

My apologies. That was not my intention to come across that way. I know that homosexuality is a trait you are born with. I do believe that certain people who have experienced sexual trauma like Teena Brandon in their formative years may have lead to a falsely obtained belief that she was born into the wrong body and then decided to opt out of womanhood.

100% agree.
