Bulletin of the Philadelphia Association for Psychoanalysis. XV, 1965: Passivity and Homosexual Predisposition in Latency Boys. John J. Francis. Pp. 160-174.

Francis reviews some of the literature on passivity in latency boys and presents two cases of passive boys with feminine orientations whom he studied. He was especially impressed with the importance of the fathers in producing passivity and feminine orientation in the patients. This was not the result of any single traumatic experience but of prolonged and repeated behavior of the fathers. From his findings and those in the literature, Francis concludes that there may be multiple etiologic factors in the production of passivity and homosexuality. Prolonged seductive behavior on the part of the father may be of great importance. Prolonged and repeated experiences emphasize the importance of quantitative factors.
