Wolf Man[ edit ] Another study often associated with this theory is that of the " Wolf Man ", a patient who tried to repress his homosexual tendencies. Based on this, he asserts that, "the conception which we gather from this long known anatomical fact is the original predisposition to bisexuality , which in the course of development has changed to monosexuality, leaving slight remnants of the stunted sex. Freud had some interesting jumping off points and ideas but they were better theorised by others. BUT - the baseline othering, and bigotry, and disgust with which people being themselves is met, is fueled so massively by these definitions, categories, and the potential for othering, and bigotry, and hate it opens society up for. Such realizations can be traumatizing and one may experience emotions such a guilt, shame, anger and even denial. There is no fixed age for this. Often the theory of innate bisexuality is discussed in association with Freud's sessions with Dora.
