*48 Homosexuality is not something innate; it is a psychological state that is more evident in the son-mother relationship. As soon as a maturing man becomes fascinated with the anima in the form of a mother, identification of the consciousness with the emotional female part of the soul occurs and such a man seeks contact with the same sex since he is psychologically of the opposite sex. If the man identifies with his own emotional anima, homosexuality occurs! In the same way, if a maturing woman identifies with her own emotional male part of the soul, she inevitably establishes physical contact with female counterparts since her sex on the emotional level is the opposite. See Anima – Animus archetype.
