Knit One, Purl One

It's said there was an exchange of graffiti on a toilet wall that began in one hand with:

My mother made me a homosexual
and was followed in another hand with:

If I gave her the wool will she make me one too?
It seems mum has been blamed too much:

"...individuals with an over-protective father tended to develop homosexuality [more] easily that those without an over-protective father"...

...The authors go on to assert that, "...paternal protection and maternal care were determined to be the main vulnerability factors in the development of homosexual males"
The authors are Taiwanese psychiatrists For-Wey Lung and Bih-Ching Shu, published this year in Comprehensive Psychiatry. They define: over-protective parent ... as over-controlling while a non-caring parent can be described as unaffectionate. Finally, the authors indicated that homosexual individuals tended to have a higher level of neurosis.
