Youth Suicide: Predominantly a Male Problem
Social Construction of Male Homosexuality and Related Suicide Problems...(For Printing, Table 10; Pour imprimer, Tableau 10)

Social Construction of Male Homosexuality and Related Suicide Problems...The results of the "Table 9" analysis indicates that gay/bisexual males experiencing harassment in only one of the six categories are at higher risk for attempting suicide than their non-harassed counterparts, and that the risk increased with exposure to increasing numbers of harassment. The results of another analysis which took into consideration both the 6 different categories of harassments and the number of harassments in each category - a value of "0" for no harassment experienced, "1" for one experience of harassment in any of the six category, "2" for two experiences, and "3" for three of more experiences, producing a maximum score as "18" - are given in "Table 10" referenced below. Generally, as the experiences of harassment increase for all males (and the same applies for males males separated on the basis of ethnicity: White Males / Males of Color, with differences existing between the two groups), their risk for 3 types of "suicide attempts" also increases.
